Skin Deep-Why A Topical CBD May Be For You

How And Why Topical CBD Works

Topical CBD is infused with cannabinoids like CBD and other beneficial plant extracts to provide all natural relief. Because topical CBD is applied right to the skin where it is needed the CBD is absorbed directly into the affected area so it is able to work faster providing quicker relief. Topical CBD, unlike other CBD products doesn’t enter the blood stream but is no less effective. Depending on the issue you are trying to address, it could work even faster than say a tincture or edibles, which are ingested and work from inside the body.

Applied topically, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid (ECS) receptor points in our skin. When these receptors are activated, they start to seek out “stressed” receptors and bring them back into balance. When we have stressed out receptors, we notice symptoms ranging from aches and pains to general soreness and stiffness.

Inside each of our bodies is an endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is a network of receptors which can be found in our brain, nervous system and other parts of your body. The ECS is also found in our skin and is key to how a topical CBD works. Topical CBD works by interacting with the ECS receptor points in our skin.

How To Apply Topical CBD Products

Topicals work best if applied after bathing while your skin is still damp. Your pores are more open helping with absorption. Apply a small amount to the affected areas and massage in. If this is an ongoing ache or pain like arthritis, make this part of your daily routine. It will only take a few minutes and you have the time to give yourself this time! You can also use as frequently as needed to get the best results. Avoid contact with your eyes with the product (particularly a roller ball, trust me I know this first hand!).

Common Uses For Topical CBD

  • Sunburn-CBD salves can help reduce the pain and inflammation while at the same time helping to hydrate the skin. Do not apply to any wound from blisters caused by a severe sunburn.
  • Arthritis-This is caused by inflammation in one or more of your joints, most commonly caused by aging. Studies have shown where topical CBD can help with the symptoms, offering therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain and inflammation without any side effects.
  • Muscle Pain-A lot of athletes have been using CBD to speed up muscle recovery after rigorous training, both orally and topically. A salve can help relax the muscles and reduce inflammation and the discomfort caused by intense physical activities.
  • Skin Issues-Studies have shown that CBD combined with the ingredients often included in a salve, may prove helpful for skin issues such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and more.
