Why we love it

More and more people are realizing that cannabis does not belong solely in a bong, vape or edible - lotions, creams, balms and salves can be incredibly effective for pain relief without getting you high.

While much of what you will hear about cannabis topicals like THC lotions is anecdotal, there are plenty of studies that strongly suggest the reality of anti-inflammatory and pain relief properties in THC and CBD, and this is now widely accepted among medical academics. Consumers report that cannabis topicals help them find relief for:

  • arthritis pain
  • back pain
  • foot pain
  • joint pain
  • knee pain
  • neck pain
  • nerve pain

At TribeTokes, we have infused Delta 8 THC with other incredibly effective pain relieving agents to deliver a truly effective and fast-acting cream.


Cooling greatly reduces your body's ability to feel pain in a specific area, so we are going all in with not just one but THREE of nature's strongest topical analgesics: 

  • Wintergreen: The active ingredient, methyl salicylate, is closely related to aspirin and has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties
  • Menthol: Blocks the calcium current along the nerves responsible for detecting temperature, creating a cooling effect perfect for sore, achy muscles
  • Peppermint: Analgesic, antispasmodic, and anti-inflammatory 

Harvard Medical School has a "unifying theory of disease," suggesting there is mounting evidence that inflammation is a common underlying cause of many ailments and degenerative diseases. Inflammation is also behind many chronic pain problems - and we're here to knock it out (!) with:

  • Arnica: Reduces inflammation, eases muscle pain, and alleviates stiffness. Arnica helps bruises dissipate faster by reducing swelling while stimulating blood vessels.
  • Wild Marjoram Oil: Calming and anti-inflammatory 
  • Jojoba Oil: Strong anti-inflammatory; also calms eczema and rosacea 
  • Aloe Vera: Contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C, and it is highly anti-inflammatory. Aloe can help treat burns, acne and dry skin.


  • Vitamin E: Strengthens the skin barrier, moisturizers, soothes
  • Helichrysum Essential Oil: Helps speed up healing of wounds, burns, and rashes, and reduces scarring. Also promotes healthy skin cell growth and regeneration.
  • Green + White Tea: Green and white tea have have catechins, which are like free radical hunters (antioxidants)
  • Safflower Seed Oil: Moisturizes and balances skin 
How to use

Rub in your CBD or THC topical on any sore area until it's completely absorbed, multiple times per day / on an as needed basis.

You might find you need more at first, and less over time - stick with it consistently over the course of a week and see how you feel.

Inflammation is like the Darth Vader of pain and CBD is a little green yoda with the spirit of a cannabis jedi.

CBD Cream For Pain


1How does THC cream work?

When you apply cannabis-infused topicals, THC can bind directly to CB1 receptors present in skin, muscle tissues, and nerves, and that brings relief to the affected area. The cannabinoids interact with the upper layers of the dermis for localized relief. Topicals interact with the receptors of the ECS (endocannabinoid system) on a superficial level, preventing them from entering the bloodstream in a meaningful way, but still allowing for their benefits on a localized scale.

We may be a little biased, but we think we have the best topical pain relief cream on the market - and many of our customers agree, especially those with chronic pain who are looking for alternatives to their pain pills. Our favorite routine is to massage it into our joints, temples (especially for those with headaches), shoulders, the bottoms of our feet, and neck.

2What is THC cream good for?

What symptoms do cannabis topicals treat? Creams, lotions, balms or salves are most popularly chosen for localized pain relief, muscle soreness, joint aches and inflammation, but anecdotal evidence is beginning to show a widening spectrum of potential benefits, from itching to headaches and cramping.

3Will THC Topicals Get Me High?

No! This is a common misperception. While it is possible that some CBD or THC could reach your bloodstream through the skin, it would be such a small amount that you shouldn’t actually feel any psychoactive effects. With most topicals, cannabinoids can’t really breach the bloodstream (a necessary element in the pharmacological process that results in intoxication); they only penetrate for localized relief. Because they’re non-intoxicating, lotions and creams are often chosen by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of THC, such as pain and inflammation relief, without the high.

4Can I use cannabis cream for headaches?

Cannabis cream or lotion can be rubbed directly into your temples, and some customers do find relief from headaches from this routine. There are even some preliminary studies showing that cannabis cream and other topicals could be effective for migraine relief. Side note: do not get the pain cream in your eyes! If you need to make contact with your eyes after applying the cream, wash your hands thoroughly with soap first so it doesn’t sting.

5Will THC topicals make me fail a drug test?
While many cannabis creams won't cause you to fail a drug test, there are no guarantees, so proceed accordingly. While it's highly unlikely, you should always act with extreme caution if your job or livelihood is on the line!
