Looking for an easy, CBD product to use? Then a CBD topical might be for you! Topicals are one of our favorite ways to use CBD, but we know you may have questions before making the switch. Let’s talk about it!
What are CBD Topicals?
Simply speaking, CBD topicals are just that, a topical application of cannabidiol. Topical CBD won’t get into your bloodstream, which makes CBD creams a good alternative if you are new to CBD or if you don’t want to ingest CBD.
The use of CBD topicals in the US is becoming quite commonplace, with a Forbes Health Survey establishing that over 50% of the 2000 adults in the survey had used CBD lotion and over 40% in serum and other topical forms. Up to 60% of adults in the US have tried a CBD product and believe it has medicinal benefits.
CBD lotion such as the Soothe Operator, is created by adding extracted CBD to oil. Just like regular lotion, most people use moisturizing CBD lotions for soft, supple, and radiant skin. We recommend using CBD lotion on your feet after a long walk and on your elbows to rejuvenate the skin.
CBD Rubs, such as the Muscle Magic, are muscle rubs designed to ease the tension in sore muscles. CBD rubs are a thicker consistency and will soften with the warmth of your hands. Massage the CBD product into your affected area and wait for the blissful benefits to kick in. We like using the Muscle Magic after a tough workout and on sore shoulders from carrying little ones.
CBD Oils, such as the Get Glow, are designed as an easy addition to your skincare routine. Restore and protect your skin barrier with CBD Oil which will work to hydrate and soothe the stresses from your day.
Do CBD Topicals Help?
It’s no secret that the skin is the body’s largest organ and protects against germs, the sun’s UV rays, and so much more. CBD topicals are commonly used for dry, rough skin and have the added benefit of stress relief through the spa-like aroma. Use a CBD lotion to help find your skin’s balance which is essential for maintaining healthy skin while looking and feeling better. You’ll also find that topical CBD works quickly since you can pinpoint exactly where you want to put the product.
*Please note that if you apply a CBD topical and experience irritation, stop using the product immediately and consult your doctor.
How to Apply CBD Topicals
Applying CBD topicals is super easy. Rub the CBD product of choice into tense muscles, and your skin will absorb the cream and bind to cannabinoid receptors within your skin. It only takes a few minutes before you begin feeling the ease of stress and irritability.
Keep in mind that there are many different types of CBD topicals on the market, so your CBD cream will most likely have unique instructions. While one may say to use a small pea-size amount, others may encourage you to apply it generously. You may also notice that one topical CBD product may differ from another by appearance or consistency. CBD muscle rubs tend to have a thicker consistency, so we recommend warming them in your hands before application.
Full-Spectrum CBD Lotion
Full-spectrum CBD means that the CBD contains all of hemp’s natural elements and benefits. It is important to note that full-spectrum CBD does contain THC, but the levels are so low they will not give you the “high” feeling that is common with other cannabis products. Be sure to check the brand’s Certificate of Analysis before purchasing to ensure the levels of CBD are what they claim to be.
What Should you look for in a CBD topical?
There is a wide variety of CBD products for sale in the market today. In order to choose the right CBD brand, it’s important to look at a few things to ascertain the quality of the CBD cream you purchase.
Sourcing Hemp and Extraction Process
Credible and quality CBD brands are transparent on how they source their hemp. Some companies use chemical solvents, while others use high heat and pressure in their CBD extraction method. Depending on your preference, knowing how the CBD’s extraction process may influence your decision. You’ll find that growing conditions and extraction methods will affect the quality of the CBD, and by choosing CBD brands that use natural ingredients and methods, such as the Rosin Press method, you are selecting one of the most natural forms of CBD on the market.
Brand Reputation and Customer Satisfaction
Since CBD is not FDA approved and regulated, it’s important to choose a transparent CBD brand you trust. Often positive customer reviews can be a sign of a credible and quality CBD company as well as shopping from a local vendor. You’ll also want to ensure the CBD label is accurate by comparing the label to the Certificate of Analysis on the CBD brands website.
