( also called vegetable oil in many books)
Are extracted from plants and have been used since ancient times, in many cultures.
Carrier oils, also referred to as vegetable oil, are used to dilute essential oils.
Carrier oils do not contain a concentrated aroma, or should I say most don't,
some can be sort of stinky. Nor do they evaporate like essential oils, but can get rancid after 6 months, sometimes faster if not kept in dark bottles and dark cabinets.
The carrier oils used should be as natural and unadulterated as possible.
Organic oils should be used where possible.
When buying carrier oils, be sure to read bottles carefully, there are quite a few oils that can be used only be used at a 10% rate.

Cannabis Infused topical blends:
Marijuana tropicals can come as a salve, a cream or even an oil. They are meant to be applied to the skin and provide localized relief for pain. Pain may be from nerves, arthritis, inflammation, and general soreness, among other conditions. The benefit of a topical, to many patients, is that a topical can provide pain relief without creating a sense of being high or stoned. Cannabis infused balms work by being absorbed through the skin and binding to our CB2 receptors, which are found throughout the body. THC and CBD along with other cannabinoids will have an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect on the body once they come into contact with these receptors. In general,
tropical will not get into the blood stream, which is one of the reasons you do not get high. Transdermal patches are another way of medicinal administration and transdermal actually do get into the blood stream, so they are somewhat different to topical. Also helps with:
Skin allergies may be the reason to use marijuana -- a topical form, at least.
