Do cannabis-infused topicals really work? Talking pain management

Of the many ways marijuana is marketed — smoke it, eat it, vape it — infused topicals are another option joining the many pot products offered to medical and recreational shoppers.

These cannabis-infused lotions, salves, massage oils and balms: Do they really work for relieving pain at its source?

Mary Jane’s Medicinals owner Dahlia Mertens and Denver Post marijuana editor Ricardo Baca discuss topicals on a recent episode of The Cannabist Show. Mertens’ company is based in Telluride in southwest Colorado, and the product line includes a “Heavenly Hash Bath” and infused lip balm in addition to the more standard topicals mentioned above.
