Cannabinoids, much like the active ingredients in other medications, can also be absorbed through the skin. Products designed for this functionality are known as cannabis topicals. The skin has a relatively complex absorption process that majorly involves a chemical’s ability to dissolve in H20. Examples of topical products include creams, balms and even transdermal patches much the like the ones often used to quit smoking cigarettes.
