CBD Topicals

CBD Topicals

Topically, CBD can be used to help soothe muscle pains, arthritis, joint pain, acne, and rashes. It’s most commonly found as CBD cream, lotion, or salve.


What are CBD Topicals?

It was only in 1988 that we became aware that our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids, neurotransmitters that regulate relaxation, eating, sleeping, memory, and our immune system. CBD, which bears a striking structural similarity to these endocannabinoids, helps stimulate this system, promoting overall mental and physical health.

In the past decade, the national conversation surrounding medical marijuana has shifted significantly. It’s no longer a question of if it works - it does - but how it can be used for maximum benefit. Topically, CBD can be used to help soothe muscle pains, arthritis, joint pain, acne, and rashes in the form of a salve, cream, or lotion.

Topicals are a wonderful way to enjoy the benefits of CBD without consuming anything. They offer localized relief from minor aches and pains without needing to ingest or smoke anything, which many beginner CBD users feel more comfortable with.

Often made into a salve or balm, CBD oil can be used topically when experiencing pain, swelling, or inflammation in a localized area of the body. Cream or lotion is most often applied directly onto the skin and massaged into the muscle or joint location. Lotion or cream can provide relief from: acute inflammation, localized joint and muscle pain, and skin irritations (including redness, acne, and eczema). Effects can be felt for 2-3 hours, depending on application and use.
