What is CHABA and how does it work?
Cannabis Health And Beauty Aids, or CHABA from Cannabis Basics include a variety of skin -nourishing ingredients believed to augment the natural health benefits found in bodywork. Research indicates the intrinsic pain relieving and anti -inflammatory properties of cannabis in combination with therapeutic oils could likely boost the healing benefits of massage therapy by enhancing and prolonging the effects of treatment.
When these topicals are used, research indicates that chemicals from cannabis (cannabinoids) are absorbed through the skin where they appear to garner a response from the body’s own endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate many functions. Cannabinoids include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), and many other compounds found in the cannabis plant. Our bodies have cannabinoid receptors throughout: CB1 (psychoactive), that mediates pain and other functions, and CB2 (non
-psychoactive), that mediates pain and inflammation. When topicals are applied, cannabinoids bind to these receptors in the skin, muscle tissue and local nerves, and may affect pain, itch and inflammation. THC binds to CB1 and CB2. CBD appears to help therapeutic neurotransmitters flourish by inhibiting production of the enzyme that breaks down these important endocannabinoids.

THC and CBD work through independent mechanisms in a complementary fashion. Topicals work differently in the body than cannabis that is eaten or inhaled, producing a targeted, localized effect on the afflicted area and not resulting in the user becoming high. Cannabinoids do not penetrate readily into the bloodstream. The Forensic Science International Journal found that THC does not show up in blood or urine tests after consistent use of THC-based topicals, However we can’t absolutely guarantee it as a scientific fact.
