Cannabis-Infused Topicals – La Crème de la Crème?

Cannabis Science Podcast, Episode 19

As more countries begin to open their markets to cannabis, a group of products stand to become the next multi-billion-dollar segment of this industry. Topical cannabis is big business in the modern era, but its uses go at least as far back as 2000 BCE and likely much earlier. Salves, creams, ointments, and bars are just a few of the cannabis-infused products being created by prestige skincare and cosmetic brands. Besides the money being made, the potential benefits are very promising. Yet one question seems to be on everyone’s mind…do these products really work? In this episode the team explores the science to answer these questions and more. Are these products really the “crème de la crème”?
