Is it Possible to Absorb THC Oil Through Skin?


There are many THC oil-based creams and balms on the market. Is this a real possibility that we can absorb THC oil through our skin? Or is it a clever scheme by the CBD industry?

We don’t have to put on our tinfoil hats or use pitchforks, because there isn’t any conspiracy. The epidermis is the top layer of the skin that absorbs THC oil. The THC compounds attach to the receptors on our skin and supply THC to our bodies.

How Much THC Can You Absorb at Once?

It might seem like all the THC oil or any other topical that you apply to your skin is going to be absorbed into your body. You would be correct. THC molecules are applied topically to the skin and penetrate deeper.

There are topical products that are transdermal. This means they can penetrate all layers of the skin and enter the bloodstream. Transdermal topicals, which are still in their infancy, are not readily available. Topicals of any type should be used with caution as bioavailability, skin absorption and bioavailability of CBD and THC are still being studied.

Are Topicals and Oils Detectable in Drug Tests

Numerous studies have been done on CBD and THC topical applications. Also, it has been shown that cannabinoids can also be detected in bloodstreams and therefore can be tested for in drug tests.

The majority of studies found that CBD/THC creams don’t show up in drug testing. Recent research found that CBD/THC topicals did not show up in drug tests in people who were given different salves.
