Jeff Miller is the Central Florida Sales Manager for MÜV. He began his professional career in pharmaceuticals, specifically antidepressants, and worked closely with practitioners, physicians, and pain management physicians.

In 2014, he committed to the form of alternative medicine by joining the cannabis industry. He was an integral member of San Felasco Nurseries, the winner of the 6th medical cannabis license in the state of Florida.

Topicals / November 3, 2021

Topicals

Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation that are non-intoxicating. Topicals are often chosen by patients who want the localized therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods. 

We all have cannabinoid receptors — CB1 and CB2 — on the outer layer of our skin, the epidermis. Applying topicals to the skin activates the receptors, which can reduce skin issues such as pain, inflammation, itchiness, and temperature can be reduced. (Cannigma)

See Also on Topicals:

What does the endocannabinoid system have to do with cannabis? It has everything to do with the order in which scientists discovered the different molecules. 

Cannabinoid receptors, the locks attached to cells in our bodies, were only discovered because researchers were trying to understand how plant-based cannabinoids (phyto-cannabinoids) like THC interact with the body. So they were named cannabinoid receptors, after the main chemicals that activates them.

“Cytokines are signaling proteins that ultimately recruit inflammation to happen. Cytokines will trigger specific immune cells to release inflammation or actually even reduce inflammation, given the right circumstances. […] CBD actually modulates the cytokine production.”
