As the cannabis industry evolves, we are finding that cannabis doesn’t just need to be combusted to reap its benefits. More consumers are turning to topical cannabis products for relief for a variety of ailments. Topicals are the best way to introduce even the most skeptical person to cannabis as their effects are non-intoxicating. Hydrated Leaf provides its customers with two options for Topical Releaf Balms. Their Warming Liger Topical Releaf Balm and their Cooling Lemon Topical Releaf Balm. Both products are handcrafted with organic and local ingredients. They’re also made in small batches to assure quality and care.
THC-A or Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid is a non-intoxicating compound found in the raw and live cannabis plant. THCA is THC but it’s not “activated.” In order to activate the THC, you need to gradually heat it up, or decarboxylate it. This means the THCA will have no psychoactive components unless you combust it. When we add THC-A to topicals, it can offer a plethora of potential benefits and relief.
How do they work?
As we know, we all have an endocannabinoid system. Our skin is our largest organ and has tons of cannabinoid receptors. With topicals, the THCA doesn’t penetrate the bloodstream and offers a localized pain relief instead. When the balm is applied to your sore areas, the cannabinoids bind to your receptors and can offer relief within a few minutes of application.
What are the ingredients?
Hydrated Leaf sources Canadian products for their topicals.
The "Warming Balm" smells like cinnamon and offers its users a nice warming sensation as it penetrates your sore areas. Their special blend of oils, combined with the THC-A uses the magic of synergy to blend and work together to offer relief by opening your pores and provide longer-lasting relief.
The ingredients are:
organic raw cannabis-infused coconut oil, local Canadian beeswax, a proprietary blend of warming organic essential oils, No THC activated.
Hydrated Leaf also offers a ‘Cooling Balm” that is lemon-scented. With a blend of six essential oils combined with the healing magic of THC-A, each handcrafted batch is made with care and quality assurance.

Potential medical benefits
THCA has a plethora of potential medical benefits. THCA works to help relieve inflammation and pain. It’s also the ideal cannabinoid to help relieve arthritis pain and inflammation. Its anti-inflammatory properties are also great for helping menstruation cramps, headaches, muscle spasms, Lupus, and various other auto-immune conditions that cause inflammation. It can also be used as a chest rub to soothe congestion, and help relieve flu and cold-like symptoms.
