Topicals: A Medical Marijuana Product That You May Have Overlooked


When you hear the word “marijuana,” what pops into your mind? Bud? Joints? Maybe edibles? These are all classics but there are many other products that you may have overlooked!


Here at Missouri Marijuana Card, we are not only your number one medical marijuana card provider, but also a main source of news and information for you. The more informed you are, the better decisions you can make about your health and wellness goals!


At Missouri dispensaries, there are a variety of forms of cannabis. There are so many products that many people just skip over, not knowing that these products could be perfect for their medical treatment. One of the products that are often overlooked are medical marijuana topicals.


So let’s get into what topicals are, how they’re beneficial, what to look out for when purchasing them and how you can get them in Missouri!


What are topicals?

This is a great question to start out with!


Topicals are a cannabis-infused ointment that is a medical product. Topicals can come in lotions, oils, balms or creams that can be applied directly to the skin for localized pain relief.


Topicals are a great way to show how diverse marijuana actually is! Marijuana is not just limited to joints and getting “high.” Topicals can give you all the benefits of medical marijuana in a non-invasive way.


What benefits come with using topicals?

One of the best things about topicals is that you can localize your treatment. With many other marijuana products such as edibles or flower, you cannot pinpoint your treatment since the compounds spread through your entire body. With topicals, you can treat the exact place where you feel pain, inflammation or soreness!


People love topicals because they have zero psychoactive effects! This is a very important benefit to a lot of medical marijuana consumers. There are many people that do not want to feel “high” when treating their medical condition. Topicals provide a way to get all the benefits of marijuana without any unwanted side effects!


Along with this, topicals are great for those patients that want to use medical cannabis in a therapeutic manner. For many, using edibles or flower can feel very recreational. Using topicals is the best way to use medical marijuana without having to inhale or ingest anything at all!


Should I look for anything specific in topicals?

Yes! If you are ready to get some topicals of your own, there are specific things you can keep an eye out for. Look for strains like Blueberry, Blackberry Kush and Permafrost or use cannabinoids such as THC, CBD or THCA.


Many times topicals come with essential oils too! If you are looking for some extra pain relief look for wintergreen, clove or cayenne oils.


How can I get topicals in Missouri?

Now that you are ready to get started using topicals, there is one thing you need: your medical marijuana card! That’s where we come in.
