Topicals are a non-edible MIPS and offer a unique ‘spot treatment’ style application of cannabinoids. An infused product is applied to the skin where the cannabinoids are absorbed. The cannabinoids do not penetrate all layers of the skin and therefore should not have a psychoactive or intoxicating effect. The most common form of topicals are lotions and balms. Commonwealth Alternative Care, Taunton Massachusetts offers a variety of topicals, from SLATE’s product line.
