The makers of a new line of lotions are promising to heal your skin with a special ingredient: cannabis.
A Colorado-based company called Appothecanna is taking advantage of Amendment 64, which legalizes recreational marijuana use in Colorado.
Some varieties of the company's creams, lip balm and body sprays contain cannabis flower oil, which had been illegal because of its high concentration of THC, which is pot's psychoactive ingredient.
THC-containing industrial products like soaps and lotions are exempted from drug controls as long as the THC doesn’t enter the body. The products are safe and effective without the side effects of smoking weed.
The products also carry a disclaimer that they're "not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. "
For now, the cannabis flower oil-based products are only available to medical marijuana patients until retail marijuana stores are allowed to open in January 2014.
