The recent discovery of cannabinoid receptors in human skin opened an exciting new chapter in the annals of cannabis-based treatments. 

Topicals are cannabis-infused balms, lotions, and oils. They’re absorbed through the skin (but don’t enter the bloodstream) for localized pain relief, and help with fighting inflammation. Mota’s topical cannabis products offer therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods.

They work by binding to cannabinoid receptors, and these receptors (throughout the body) are activated either by the body’s naturally-occurring endocannabinoids or by cannabis compounds THC and/or CBD.

We have many options when it comes to cannabis topicals. Here are 3 of our favourites:
