Synergy Relief takes a 1:1 ratio of CBD and THC and infuses it into a super salve that has powerful anti inflammatory properties. Being that the THC element, as are all the cream’s elements, is absorbed through the skin, there is no psychoactive effects, but there is a true synergy that happens when cannabinoids are combined like this called the entourage effect. The CBD and THC work a special kind of magic together and if you live in a legal state, looking for a salve that has both, or even more cannabinoids, is an excellent idea.
