Breaking the Stigmas and Stereotypes of Potheads with Cannabis Topicals 

By Cannademy Staff Writer

Most folks these days don’t need much convincing when it comes the medical benefits of marijuana.  They have read news reports and watched television shows (including FIVE Dr. Sanjay Gupta specials) singing the healing praises of cannabis. 

But occasionally people are still stuck in outdated stigma, stereotypes of potheads, and misinformation.

Topical cannabis to the rescue!

I have talked to many people over the years who have used topical marijuana as a gentle way to introduce their aging parents and grandparents to the benefits that medical marijuana can offer. 

These seniors did not want to smoke anything and were both skeptical and fearful of using marijuana at all. 

They were people who, because of government and corporate sponsored brainwashing over the decades, were stuck with stereotypes of potheads.

Topical Cannabis Opens Minds and Heals Bodies!

Even people who would never in a million years smoke cannabis or eat an edible will often try a topical product.

I am not saying they won’t be skeptical that rubbing marijuana infused skincare products on the body can help.  But once they experience the benefits of topical cannabis, that often changes.  Their minds invariably open up to the possibilities cannabis can bring to their health and quality of life. 

The stigma fell away so much for some these folks, they went on to use edible and even inhalable cannabis.

DIY Topicals, an Easy and Economical Way to Try Topical Cannabis

You don’t even have to spend a lot to introduce cannabis topicals to a cannabis-resistant patient.

Marijuana topicals are easy and economical to make, and they are the gift that everyone wants. 

Infused massage oils make a terrific introduction.  Rub some on anywhere there is pain or inflammation and see how cannabis topicals can work for you.
