For heaven's sake, please avoid such things. It is possible they may get absorbed through skin. There are simpler muscle rubs available which are safe. ( Rumalaya liniment for example ).

Do not think to use such type of preparation.
Better products are available which will not cause any harm.
Always choose the drug which apart from its positive action, do not harm your body.

From what I understand, the oils can be absorbed right through your dermis and into your bloodstream, similar to sublingal application of tinctures. So MAYBE but it depends on what you are using... Check this product out.

hemp-Eaze balm made from the roots of cannabis sativa does not show THC.

Test results:
They determined, with great disappointment that there wasn't enough THC to be determined. there ya go! A cannabis product that has the freedom to heal without concern!
