Blair’s experience at GreenHouse was quick, easy, and professional. In her video review, Blair didn’t seem to have any trouble:
As a water-based topical, the Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical absorbs quickly without leaving any residue behind. The extremely potent menthol smell of this topical, however, might draw attention even though it won’t necessarily flag you as a cannabis user.
Blair didn’t care much for the aroma of her Muscle Freeze. When in doubt, cannabis and hemp companies have a bad habit of just throwing menthol at their topical formulations until nobody in the lab can smell anything anymore.
Sadly, the Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical appears to be just such a lotion. Instead of mysterious notes of jasmine or a sweet-smelling floral aroma, Mary’s Medicinals simply decided to load up on mint and forget the subtleties.
According to Blair, the Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical provides fast, potent relief. She applied this water-based gel to her foot, and it delivered pain-relieving effects within just a few minutes.
Blair says that her Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical really did the trick. Having recently injured her foot, Blair applied her topical to the area and experienced complete pain elimination.
Her foot, which had previously been swollen, tight, and inflamed, became loose and relaxed. In my opinion, these enhanced effects are most likely due to three factors:
Whether my suppositions are on-target or not, Blair’s experienced reality after using her Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical was one of pain-free relaxation. That’s no guarantee you’ll experience the same effects — always consult with your doctor before using cannabinoids for pain.
Blair experienced the effects of her Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical for at least three hours. During that entire time, her foot remained pain-free.
If you’ve read other Best Dosage Chicago reviews, you’re already familiar with my position on the high prices in the Illinois recreational cannabis market.
Yes, cannabis is expensive in Chicago. Yes, it’s annoying for everyone — even cannabis writers who live halfway across the country.
Blair shouldn’t have paid what she did for this topical regardless of its quality. Prices will stabilize eventually — until then, Illinois cannabis products will continue to get bad grades for pricing.
Mary’s Medicinals is one of a handful of national brands that has a foot in both CBD and THC. You can buy Mary’s Medicinals products with CBD online, but this brand’s THC-infused topicals are only available in select dispensaries.
The ingredient information on the official Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical webpage is oddly vague:
“Full-spectrum cannabis extract with naturally occurring CBD, massage oil, menthol.”
It’s unlikely that Mary’s would change its ingredients substantially between its CBD and THC topicals, and here’s the ingredients list for the Mary’s Medicinals (or, technically Mary’s Nutritionals) CBD Muscle Freeze:
“Canola Oil, Octyl Palmitate, Tribehenin, Candelilla Wax, Copernicia Cerifera Wax, White Beeswax, Apricot Oil, Sesame Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Laureth-3-Dimethicone, Tocopherol, Hypoallergenic Fragrance, Sunflower Seed Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Mango Butter, Beeswax, Emulsifying Wax, Menthol, Isopropyl Myristate, Camphor, Plantamulse, Optiphen, Marjoram, Full-Spectrum Activated Hemp Extract, Xanthan Gum.”
These ingredients aren’t bad for a water-based topical. There are some corners cut and a few questionable constituents, but for the most part, the Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical is a safe, fast-absorbing topical cannabis product that usually has great effects.
I agree with Blair’s assessment that the Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical is a great pick for anyone in the Chicago area who is in pain. There’s nothing I can do about the price of THC topicals in Illinois, but this water-based lotion from Mary’s Medicinals appears to offer the best effects while also containing considerably safer ingredients than most competing products.
In her video review, Blair just used a tiny squirt of her Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical to cover the entire back of her hand. Adjust the amount of THC topical you apply in relation to the surface area where you plan to spread it.
If, like Blair, you experience the effects of your Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze for around three hours, feel free to reapply your topical right after its effects wear off. As a water-based gel, your Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical won’t leave behind any residue even after multiple applications in a single day.
Anything else you need to know about the Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical?
Blair bought her Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical at GreenHouse Dispensary in Skokie, Illinois. The availability of cannabis products tends to fluctuate, so make sure to call your local dispensary to make sure they carry this product before making the trip.
In some cases, you might be able to order Mary’s Medicinals Muscle Freeze THC Topical online through a cannabis delivery service. Some dispensaries also offer online ordering with curbside or in-store pickup.
Out of all the THC topical brands, Mary’s Medicinals is one of the best. Commonly regarded as highly effective, this company’s topicals are also surprisingly free of cheap, harmful ingredients.
Thanks to its water-based recipe, Mary’s Medicinals lotion delivers cannabinoids through your skin and into the underlying tissues. As a result, this THC-infused lotion might provide better effects than oil-based salves or balms.
Mary’s Medicinals products that do not contain THC are branded under the name Mary’s Nutritionals. If a topical bears the Mary’s Medicinals logo, it contains THC.
Another sure sign would be any usage of the word “cannabis” on the labeling. Mary’s products that don’t contain THC are listed as “hemp” instead.
Before the committee gets their hands on the product and formally rates it, the BestDosage team scrapes the product packaging, scours the internet, and occasionally calls the brand directly to hunt down the most accurate information about each product.
