"THC is what people resonate with, and that’s what most consumers are looking for when they are buying a product like this," Apothecanna owner James Kennedy told ABC News.

THC-containing industrial products, such as soaps and lotions, are exempted from drug controls as long as the THC does not enter the body, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. And Kennedy claims the pot-infused products, which he refers to as the medicated line, are safe and effective without the side effects of smoking weed.

"Everything is for the skin," he said. "It’s not meant to be inebriating in any way. It’s added in there to enhance the properties of the other ingredients."

Apothecanna claims the topical products have the potential to relieve pain, but medical experts have not reached a consensus when it comes to cannabis-based skin care products.

"Without definitive data demonstrating efficacy of botanical ingredients such as cannabis, more research must be done to evaluate their utility for skin conditions," said Manhattan-based dermatologist Dr. Joshua Zeichner, an assistant professor of dermatology at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York.
