We all know that you can smoke or ingest CBD to get the effect from the cannabis plant. But you can also apply topically to a specific area to still get relief. If you do not want to use a lotion, salve or other type of topical that contains THC, a pure hemp-derived CBD product will reduce pain and inflammation.
How it works
Once applied to a targeted area, a CBD topical penetrates and affects the CB2 receptors. Topical applications absorbs into the skin slowly supplying medicine over a period of time. This means you can get all the healing effects of CBD during a longer timeframe. The CB2 receptors are throughout the body and will activate either naturally by the endocannabinoid system or from phytocannabinoids like CBD and THC. The active cannabinoids are absorbed into your skin to signal the receptors to provide relief.
Topical CBD products have been known to give relief for people who have arthritis, rashes, inflammation, headaches, eczema, chapped lips, dry skin, sore muscles, burns, bug bites, sunburn, acne and much more.
Apply CBD oil or topical directly to irritated area.
For bug bites, rashes, burns or skin conditions gently rub-in the infused topical. A CBD oil topical will never penetrate the bloodstream but signals the CB2 receptors for relief.
For more intense pain, like sore muscles, arthritis or inflammation, massage the infused product into the targeted area to reduce pain and inflammation.
Like all of our CBD products, topical products will not get you high. Even with THC topicals, people say that only extreme levels of THC will give you a “high” feeling but not as intense. Topical products never breakthrough into the bloodstream.
Instead of medicating your entire self, you can apply a CBD topical to a direct area where it will have maximum impact. You can apply when you want and how much. Based on the pain of the area and the amount of treatment it needs.
