What To Know About CBD Topicals

CBD topicals are one of the newest group of CBD products to join other popular methods of ingestion. Skin care, lotions, balms, sprays, and oils that designed to be absorbed through the skin provide more focused, localized benefits. Topical CBD products are often preferred by those who want the therapeutic benefits of CBD without having to vape it or consume it orally. 

What are Topicals? 

Topicals are CBD-infused creams, lotions, oils, sprays, and balms that are applied directly onto your skin to provide focused treatment of pain, soreness, rash, and inflammation. Other transdermal applications such as patches are also available. 

Many topicals focus not only on providing CBDs, but also on harnessing specific terpenes along with other ingredients that help with pain relief and provide numbing. Some of these natural additives include capsaicin and essential oils like wintergreen and clove. Soothing scents such as organic lavender are often added as well, along with rich emollients including beeswax, shea butter, and olive, coconut and jojoba oils.  

How Do CBD Topicals Work? 

CBD topicals work by being absorbed directly through the skin and then binding to CB2 receptors in the area. These CB2 receptors are found throughout the body and are linked to inflammatory responses. CBD also binds to the 5-HT1A receptor, further reducing pain and inflammation and providing a number of additional beneficial health effects. They are all created using imported hemp oil and hemp seed oil, both featuring a full range of analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties along with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, providing rich moisture and soothing treatment for a variety of conditions. 

What Are CBD Topicals Used To Treat? 

Different topical products will offer different benefits depending on how they were processed and the specific mixture of ingredients used. The most popular use of CBD topical products is for localized pain relief, tension, inflammation, and muscle soreness. Many people also use them to treat itching, psoriasis, dermatitis, acne, eczema, and even cramps and headaches.
