CBD topicals are topical (i.e., applied to the skin) that contain cannabidiol, or CBD for short. The products come in many forms, including balms, lotions, ointments, and skin salves. These products are available online and in various health stores nationwide. Read on to learn more about CBD’s benefits and how they work.There are many reasons why you might consider using CBD topical creams. One of the most important is the fact that they will not get you high. There is no psychoactive effect when using these products, although they do contain some amount of this compound.
Topicals are also effective when all other methods have failed to provide relief. The skin’s natural systems can absorb active ingredients and deliver them to the bloodstream through the lymphatic system (a series of vessels over which a layer of skin is spread). This is a very effective way to deliver active ingredients straight into the body without any negative side effects like the ‘head high’ associated with smoking cannabis or consuming an edible. These products are not only shown to be effective for relieving pain and inflammation, but they can also speed up the healing process of cuts, bruises, and wounds and reduce scarring.
Most CBD topicals currently on the market use hemp-derived CBD rather than marijuana-derived CBD. Hemp is a high-growing crop that is legal in many countries because it contains only trace amounts of THC (the psychoactive component of the cannabis plant). By law, you can purchase hemp products (including CBD) in most countries. It is also a very sustainable resource as it requires little water to grow – compared to cotton, which requires heavy irrigation.
