We all have this system of receptors in our bodies ready to interpret the cannabis plant’s chemical compounds. The receptors are found in the brain, organs, connective tissue, immune cells, and even skin cells. When cannabis is used topically, the cannabinoids penetrate deep into that localized area, but they don’t have the psychotropic effects associated with smoking cannabis. People use cannabis-infused creams, oils, and balms for the localized relief of swelling, inflammation, tension, aches, and pains. Cannabinoids work better together, as do terpenes.
