Rocky Mountain High
Colorado just passed a medical-marijuana bill, and already Denver-based Apothecanna
has debuted a cannabis-infused skincare line (from $12 for a 2-ounce bottle). The products are touted as "pain-relieving body care," not an intoxicant. The three creams—for pain, calming and stimulating—are made with plant essences. Unlike other hemp-based products, the marijuana-plant flower (which packs a 70 percent concentration of THC) is used. Though topical THC use has not been FDA-vetted, anecdotal feedback is good, with users reporting relief from ailments from backaches to eczema. Sounds pretty dope.
