How Does Topical CBD Work?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]As the use of CBD oil grows in popularity, becoming more commonplace in homes and workplaces, the variety of products grows as well. The selection of high quality oils, tinctures, capsules, vape juices, edibles, and beverages is exciting. But what about CBD products that you don’t directly ingest or inhale? You can find lots of CBD-infused lotions and creams on the market, but may not be sure if they’ll be effective. How does topical CBD work?

CBD for a Range of Conditions

The benefits of taking all-natural CBD oil regularly include relief for:

  • Inflammation
  • Chronic Pain
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Digestive issues
  • Seizures

Most focus is on oil, tinctures, and capsules, but CBD comes in other forms that can still help you feel and live better. Besides eating, drinking, or vaping, applying a CBD-infused balm directly to the skin can improve comfort for aches and pains.

How Does Topical CBD Work?

When you’ve got sore limbs and joints, or strained muscles, it can be hard to live as fully and healthily as you want. Similar to other soothing creams or anti-inflammation ointments, topical CBD lotions and balms can help to provide pain relief. After application and absorption through the skin, the CBD is broken down by fatty acids and goes on to interact with receptors in the endocannabinoid system. These receptors help to regulate responses within the body, notably appetite, mood, concentration, and pain.

CBD is non-intoxicating and has been referred to by the World Health Organization as a “safe and well tolerated” substance, so using a CBD-infused topical treatment poses zero to little harm.

Of course, if your skin reacts badly to the use of CBD creams or other topical applications, you should stop and consult with your doctor. If it’s safer for you, consider ingestible products instead to get the same – though less localized – benefits.

Why Use Topical CBD?

Using a topical CBD cream or lotion is convenient for any lifestyle. Containers are easily stored in a purse, gym bag, or suitcase, allowing you to take relief with you anywhere you go. You can enjoy direct application and pain relief to areas where you need it, when you need it. And unless you have an allergy to the CBD itself or another ingredient in the product, there’s little possibility of an adverse reaction.
