CBD Topicals

CBD topicals include muscle balms and massage oils. Applying topical preparations may help to relieve muscular aches and pains by targeting CBD directly onto the area of discomfort. Massaging is easily the best way to feel the full benefits of CBD topicals.


What are CBD topicals?

CBD topicals are a collection of lotions, salves, and creams, often made by infusing CBD into a blend of organic beeswax and regenerating ointments of coconut, argan or rosehip in combination with therapeutic essential oils. They are applied directly onto skin in order to relieve pain both on the skin surface or deeper, into the muscle below.

Why buy CBD topicals?

The human body has an endocannabinoid system that regulates appetite, mood, and pain and pleasure sensations. CBD topicals may activate the body's endocannabinoid system by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the skin muscle tissues, and nerves, regulating the feelings of pain and swelling in that area. This interaction allows for these topicals to be a solution in treating the chronic pain and inflammation that many people can suffer from.

Best way to take CBD topicals?

CBD infused creams and other topicals are extremely easy to use. Generally speaking, it only requires an application of the cream around any painful area for its beneficial soothing effect. The process of applying quality CBD topicals and CBD creams is similar to putting on a moisturizing lotion.

However, choosing the right amount of CBD within the topical used is not as straightforward. It's important to find out how much CBD is contained within the ointment to gauge whether there's enough to provide a sufficient therapeutic pain relief. We suggest that you try a low dosage topical and gradually increase the potency until finding optimal therapeutic relief. Remember to use our CBD dosage calculator if you are combining CBD products together with a CBD oil to help you keep track of your total daily CBD dosage.

When it comes to applying a topical infused with hemp-derived CBD, there are no known side effects to worry about. As with lotions and creams, CBD cream shouldn't be used on broken skin, and we recommend that you always consult your dermatologist before using any topical CBD products.

Some people believe CBD topicals work better when they contain broad spectrum CBD and full spectrum CBD over isolate CBD. Full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD contain a wide array of cannabinoids to take advantage of the entourage effect, whereas CBD isolates do not. Full spectrum products contain the most have the closest chemical make-up to the plant and so are designed to help take advantage of the entourage effect the most. On the other hand an advantage of a CBD isolate topical is their high potency.

Many of our products are also vegan friendly, gluten free, made under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) standards as well as avoiding animal testing. Also, we have products that are derived from organic varieties of the Hemp plant. It’s very rare for people to get side effects from good quality CBD.
