Muscle Pain

Many patients use marijuana topicals for muscle pain. They are applied directly to the skin and absorb through binding to the CB2 receptors, which are found throughout the body, providing an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. 12 In general, topicals do not get into the bloodstream, which means it does not cause the psychoactive effects while providing localized relief for pain. 13
