A telltale sign of changing seasons in the PNW is that crisp, chilly air that rolls in right around November. While shorter days and dropping temperatures certainly bring the cozy winter vibes we’ve been waiting for all year, they also bring those dry, cracked hands nobody looks forward to. That’s why this month, we’re rounding up some top-tier topicals that use THC to salvage scaly skin. Your self-care routine is about to get elevated.
Heylo Heylotion™ Budder
Heylo uses full-spectrum, high-potency Cannabis wax – a sustainable byproduct of one of their processing steps – as the base for their reformulated vegan and hypoallergenic Body Budder. Blended with lavender, eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils, it has an earthy, herbal scent and a consistency more like something you’d get from a lavish spa than off dispensary shelves. Word of advice: Heat your Body Budder up in the microwave for about five seconds and apply it warm for calming, comfy relief from irritated skin.
Fairwinds FLOW Cream
This multiple-award-winning FLOW Cream uses Fairwinds’ exclusive Canna Vera base, which contains polysaccharides, lipids and waxes juiced directly from the Cannabis plant. It has a faint aroma of menthol and a consistency similar to hand lotion that goes on smooth, minus the oily mess. Blended with ceramides, which help to strengthen the protective skin barrier, and hyaluronic acid to retain moisture, this pick will have your skin feeling soft and supple even on those rare Seattle snow days.

Wild Mint Rest Whipped Body Budder
Wild Mint’s Rest Body Butter combines full-spectrum Cannabis oil from Skagit Organics with a therapeutic herbal blend. The combination of bergamot, lavender, vanilla and jasmine essential oils makes this topical smell like a soothing, steaming cup of Earl Gray tea. With a thick, whipped consistency that feels ultra-luxurious, we recommend keeping this one stored in the fridge – pulling it out before bedtime and applying it to dry skin right before curling up under the covers.
