Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a balm and a salve?  

A balm and a salve bring the same benefit to your skin with the exception that a balm has a higher percentage of beeswax in it and therefore usually has a thicker consistency than a salve. Although the terms are often used interchangeably, there is a bit of a difference.

How should I store my salve, balm or lotion bar?

Natural products made without preservatives or fillers are more sensitive to heat, light and air. Therefore, BeachGrass Topicals recommends keeping your salve in a cool dry place with the lid tightly secured. Some topical users choose to keep their product in the refrigerator but that is a personal choice. We do not recommend storing your topicals in the bathroom due to the volatility of the temperature and moisture levels.

How do I use the Cannabis Infused Lotion Bar? 

There are a couple of ways to apply the lotion bar and it’s a personal choice for what works best for you and your goals. Some hold the bar and drag across the target area and then massage into their skin. Others prefer to start by pinching off a small bit of the bar and use that to massage into their skin. Finally, some customers prefer to rub the lotion bar on their hands and then apply and massage into the target area. As for the timing of the application, some apply after a shower/bath and others use at anytime of day. Whatever your preferred method, your skin will welcome the beneficial effects of the Cannabis Infused Lotion Bar.

Why do my topical products get grainy from time to time? Can I still use them?

Natural topical products made without preservatives are sensitive to heat, light and air. Extended exposure can impact the consistency of a product. However, the tiny granules will melt upon contact with your skin. The grainy feeling does not impact the topical’s effectiveness.

Can THC-infused Topicals have a psychoactive effect?

Topical salves, balms, serums and the like, can’t get you ‘high’ as the THC does not get to the bloodstream. However, you should always thoroughly wash your hands after applying a cannabis infused topical product. If you were to touch your eyes, nose or your face after an application trace amounts might enter your system – and although it’s unlikely that you would experience any psychoactive effects, it could appear with a blood test. Therefore, you should always use care and caution when using a cannabis infused topical product.
