A new company, Tauriga Sciences, Inc., is betting on cannabis therapy to generate revenue; it recently acquired Doc Green’s line of Therapeutic Healing Creams, which won Best Non-Edible Medically Infused Product at the San Francisco Medical Cannabis Cup in 2013. Californians seeking natural pain relief made Doc Green’s a popular product in medical dispensaries and collectives like the famed Harborside Health Center. The cream delivers a healing dose of cannabinoids to your skin’s CB2 receptors with a proprietary blend of lemongrass, shea butter and red palm oil.
Doc Green’s was created by a collective of Orthodox Jews, who converted many senior citizens into cannabis activists with their “revolution in pain relief.” The cream comes in unscented, vanilla and lavender versions. We tried the cannabis-unscented lotion, which is light, non-greasy and extremely soothing. Glowing reviews on the Doc Green’s website testify to the topical’s pain-relieving properties; clients assert that it soothes ailments including migraines, skin conditions, muscle and joint pain. Since the cream infuses cannabinoids directly into your skin, there are no psychoactive effects: Your brain stays clear while your body feels relief!
