Are you wondering if you can apply a topical to an open/healing wound?
Some users report that topicals containing cannabis have helped with conditions such as acne, lesions due to skin cancer, eczema, burns and other wounds.
A report published in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management stated, “Anecdotal accounts of the use of topical extracts from the cannabis plant being used on open wounds date back to antiquity. In modern times, cannabinoid therapies have demonstrated efficacy as analgesic agents in both pharmaceutical and botanical formats.”
Remember: before applying any topical products on broken or irritated skin check the ingredients! Since cannabis topicals aren’t yet regulated you’re likely making your own anyway so stick to ingredients that you know are safe for your skin.
