Skin & Self-Care: THC
In this crazy, hectic world of ours, self-care is important.
Self-care can take many forms. For many, cannabis consumption is a part of self-care.
Unwinding with a joint in hand or a piece of medicatead chocolate after a long day is the perfect way for some to slow down the racing mind. For others, taking a bath or treating the skin to a divine concoction of deliciously scented oils is the way to relax the body. But what if cannabis and skin-care combined to form some mega healing goodness, helping both the body and the mind calm down? Well some companies have!
And for you, our beloved readers, we have taken on the task of finding the best THC-infused cannabis skin-care products on the market.
To start, we’re taking skin-care to the nether regions and talking about skin that’s erm rather sensitive. We’re talking about sex. Having hot, consensual sex is a great way to practice self-care. And you don’t need a partner to experience this kind of orgasmic pleasure, especially with Empower Bodycare’s 4PLAY on hand. A topical company based in Oregon, Empower wants to make sure that everyone and anyone can enjoy sex if that’s what they’re into. Hence the creation of the 4PLAY: a THC-infused, pH balanced, sensory enlivening topical pleasure oil designed to arouse and enhance sensation. Use it on yourself, use it with your partner, even use it to help alleviate pain and cramping. Get your hands on some 4PLAY and find some time to get down with your bad self. Only sold in Oregon dispensaries.
