    hey folks...i have a co-worker that is a medical pot smoker and he says that at the local "co-op" that he goes to they have this marijuana lotion that cures aches and pains...well i called bullshit and he kinda did too because neither one of us had ever heard of such a thing...well last weekend he got a free sample of the stuff and now he is trying to convince me this shit works...he said they use leaf material and grind it up really fine and mix it with some kind of oil and it some how magically cures aches and pains

    im wonderin if anyone else out there has heard of this?? i personally still think its bullshit and they are pullin a fast one on him...but he is swearin up and dow to it.. any replies are appreciated :)

    Well you have to ask if it is possible to absorb THC topically, and if they infuse it into this lotion and he rubs it into the skin, he will get high, and the high will cure his aches and pains. I wouldn't immediately call bullshit, I would just look into it a little more.

    It's not bullshit.
    If he's referring to the Merry Hempsters products, yes, the stuff works very well.
    It doesn't have any THC in it, though. Hemp oil mixed with several different herbs working as active ingredients.
    Think of a hempy version of Tiger Balm that doesn't stink to high heaven and you're on the right track.

    Hemp oil is more suited to using topically, because it seems to absorb into skin more easily. (It's very close to natural sebum, which is the oil skin produces on it's own.)
    It's not some new great medical breakthrough that someone just discovered.
    Liniments and Salves have been around for generations. It's just that over the years "Big Pharma" has convinced most people that over-medicating with stuff like Tylenol or Advil for aches and pains is the new modern way to relieve what could have been treated with a simple Salve.

    There are a bunch of New Topical "Patches" being produced,as We type. We know of the Nicotine Patch, Morphine patch, other pain restriction patches, even anti-anxiety patches. We could get a THC patch made, if the Medical Laboratories where allowed enough of it to experiment with it, not to mention the legality. Pot lasts long enough smoking or vaporizing, so a constant dosing would do nothing but boost the tolerance.
    We don't need anything to make us need more each time, all the time.

    yep

    I work at a grocery store and we have that hemp lotion as well as shampoo, soap, lipbalm, and cereal too! It's called Puffins (pun intended?) and you can see the ground up seeds in the cereal it tastes ok. The soap comes in lavender and eucalyptus (sp?) I'm gonna pick some up tonight and try it out :)

    Hemp oil contains no THC, doesn't get you high, and doesn't cure aches and pains. It's good for your skin, though. Hemp oil is pressed from the seeds, which contain no THC.

    There are topical medical marijuana products which contain THC. They're supposed to be good for aches and pains. They're not supposed to get you high.

    I saw some at a barber shop a while ago and picked up some. I never found it to cure aches and pains, however it did moisturize my skin pretty well.
