What is Canna Salve? How does it work?
The skin is the largest organ in the body. Our skin protects us, and by doing so absorbs the toxins, bacteria and chemicals that we are exposed to us on a daily basis. Additionally our skin is the first point of contact and the first to take damage from the elements, sun exposure, UV, etc. Our skin also plays an important role in detoxification as well as absorbing vitamin D from the sun. It is very important to be aware of what we put our skin in contact with, and to keep it as healthy as possible.
We have alchemised our Canna Salve with the intention to be an all-purpose natural healing cream. From simply using it as a daily moisturiser, or for treating chronic eczema or arthritis, we believe we have created a magical healing topical for anyone to use (including children and animals).
Canna Salve works by directly interacting and activating our endocannabinoid system (ECS) in our skin, specifically cannabinoids receptors called CB1 & CB2. Cannabinoids are complex chemical compounds that mimic naturally occurring compounds produced by our bodies, called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoid receptors are not only present in the skin, but in our nervous system, organs, gut, tissues and brain. The ECS’ role in our skin is to constantly control the activity of the skin’s immune and inflammatory system.
The cannabinoids in our Canna Salve help to boost the function of the ECS, especially in our skin and tissues, therefore helping to manage inflammation, pain, disease and contribute to their overall healthy physiological function.
Cannabinoids such as CBD & THC also have powerful anti-oxidant properties, further protecting the cells in your body against free radical damage.
(Free radicals are unstable molecules that harm cells in your body)
Will using Canna Salve make me ‘high’?
No. Getting ‘high’ is the result of one of the key cannabinoids, THC, entering your bloodstream and penetrating the blood-brain barrier, binding to the receptors in your brain and producing feelings of being ‘high’.
The cannabinoids in Canna Salve are absorbed through the skin before reaching your bloodstream, therefore you can apply them liberally without any psychoactivity.
What is different about the Extra Strength version?
Our Extra Strength version contains 60-80% more cannabinoids in it. As well as an ingredient called DMSO, which allows the cannabinoids to reach deeper into the skin and tissues. This results in stronger therapeutic healing effects, often used for chronic conditions (such as arthritis, eczema, severe pain, etc).
Benefits of Canna Salve
Provides localised pain management:
Most commonly used for pain caused by joints (such as arthritis), muscles (from sports injuries, etc), back aches, burns, bites, etc. Many of our patients use it to help them sleep at night, as the pain associated with the above often prevents peaceful sleep. Our salve offers fast-acting, location-specific pain relief without the side effects of many modern allopathic medicines.
Heal and relieve skin irritations, infections and conditions:
Canna Salve can help treat a variety of different skin conditions. From mild skin irritations such as bug bites and scratches, to more severe skin conditions (both bacterial and fungal) such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. Our salve helps alleviate the itching, swelling and redness associated with such skin ailments, as well as helping to heal cells on a molecular level.
Swollen joints are painful, and can greatly reduce one’s over-all quality of life, especially arthritic pain. Cannabinoids have powerful anti-inflammatory properties and by applying Canna Salve directly to inflamed areas, both inflammation and pain is reduced.
Improve skin elasticity and treat skin abnormalities:
Our Canna Salve is packed with nutrients and amino-acids. Applying often improves the health of your skin, resulting in noticeable elasticity, reduced acne and more youthful looking skin. Helps treat skin abnormalities such as warts and moles. Applying Canna Salve to the associated skin can rid the area of the imperfection or reduce the size of the abnormality by targeting the cells that produce it.
100s of uses:
Due to the huge amount of uses that Canna Salve has, we cannot list everything here. We encourage you to do your own research and find out whether the salve can help you. Be creative with it’s use! Our salve also makes for a great massaging cream, as well as a lubricant. It’s animal and child friendly too!
Just remember to avoid contact with eyes and be cautious when applying to open wounds. Always seek medical attention for anything that might be serious.
Remember, our Canna Salve is 100% natural and plant based, containing no parabens or SLS’s
