TopiCanna is a multi-use therapeutic cream formulated and manufactured under the direction of a Harvard PhD chemist with guidance from a Harvard MD. TopiCanna’s key active ingredient, cannabidiol (CBD), is pure and potent, and it is derived exclusively from hemp. CBD oil extracted from hemp does not produce any psychoactive effects, either when applied topically or ingested. TopiCanna’s CBD is infused into a proprietary carrier containing rich shea butter and apricot kernel oil. Apricot kernel oil enhances CBD’s effects through several therapeutic properties of its own: it is an excellent emollient (moisturizer); it reduces inflammation when applied topically; and it is anti-septic and reduces risk of infection.
Studies have shown that CBD has anti-inflammatory effects and supports the body to relax muscles that are often a component of mechanical pain. While CBD does not address arthritis directly, it modifies pain by encouraging the body’s appropriate response to injury, degenerative joints, and spinal issues.
Generally within 20 minutes after TopiCanna application to the structures surrounding joints, the muscles that support the neck and back, and/or to irritated skin, people report:
- pain reduction
- more mobility
- relief of itching and scaly red skin
Get the most out of your TopiCanna use:
The best way to use TopiCanna for chronic musculoskeletal pain modulation is to rub it directly into the area that hurts–preferably after the application of wet heat (warm water). The dispenser delivers a reproducible amount that can be titrated to the severity of pain, individual response and size of area.
- Start with 5-10 activations, but apply one dispense at a time and rub in well so that the lotion’s color and residual disappear.
- For acute injury, at the time of the muscular injury and the 24 to 36 hours after, apply directly to the area, one activation at a time, and rub in gently, following it with application of ice with a wet washcloth that has been in the freezer for 20 minutes or a package of frozen peas
There is virtually no THC in Tropicana and no possibility of psychoactive effects or a positive drug test. It is safe for everyone to use and for treatment of all musculoskeletal pain.
Stop the pain before it even starts!
It is helpful to apply TopiCanna generously before therapeutic exercise or any activity that may cause muscular injury.
