Pain Cream by Omni Botanicals offers relief from pain coming from sore joints and muscles. It is made effective by the powerful properties of all-natural essential oils such as peppermint and arnica, which have both been used for centuries in pain treatment. The peppermint oil helps to relieve pain as well as relax inflamed muscles, and the power of arnica oil calms swelling and inflammation. It also has a small amount of DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) which assists in penetrating the skin, guiding the pain cream deep into sore muscles.
Pain Cream contains 137mg of THC Distillate which is fully activated, making it the purest and most refined topical on the market.
137mg THC, 30mL.
How Do Topicals Work? Pain Cream by Omni Botanicals
Rather than smoking marijuana or ingesting it orally, which will affect the whole body and can take up to 2 hours or more to fully experience the effects, the topical application of cannabinoids allows them to be absorbed directly into the affected area for faster and more focused relief. This minimally invasive method for medical cannabis use often serves as a first point of contact between curious consumers and the medical cannabis industry. Reluctant to ingest or smoke the raw cannabis plant, new users may be more willing to try external applications.
Topicals are non-psychoactive, so they are often popular among patients who want the therapeutic effects of cannabis but not the “high”. This non-psychoactivity is because the cannabinoids in these topicals bind to CB2 receptors near the skin, activating the endocannabinoid system, and are never absorbed into the bloodstream. Because human skin has a low absorption rate for these cannabinoids, coverage and dose need to be large enough to overcome this barrier (Challapalli & Stinchcomb, 2002). This is why most cannabis topicals suggest applying “liberally” to the affected location.
However, CBN and CBD are more permeable to the skin than THC and are more likely to stimulate the CB2 cannabinoid receptors, making them the popular choice for the manufacture of cannabis topicals (Jorge et al., 2011). Since CBD contents are much higher in commercial hemp than in marijuana, hemp is a more viable and less toxic source of CBD for use in topicals.
