As many continue to embrace CBD for its medicinal value, CBD product manufacturers and other health professionals continue to discover more ways to take advantage of its health and medicinal benefits offering consumers more products and methods to choose from. CBD can be found in many forms like oils, tinctures, edibles, patches, vape oil, and topicals such as creams, lotions, balms, and more. Topical CBD products are a great alternative to over-the-counter medicines with studies proving their anti-inflammatory properties. What’s also great about CBD is the lack of side effects that come with taking it as opposed to traditional, prescription medications. Topical CBD products are designed to be applied externally onto the skin and are infused with cannabinoids, which are compounds derived from the cannabis plant. Although it only affects the surface layers of the body, many have raved about CBD topicals alleviating localized pain quick. Our bodies have the endocannabinoid system which is a network of receptors that can be found in the brain, nervous system, and skin which is why topical CBD can aid in alleviating localized pain. Topical CBD interacts with the endocannabinoids system receptor points in our skin by seeking out “stressed” receptors. Stressed out receptors can cause symptoms ranging from aches and pains to general soreness and stiffness.
Topical CBD is used for its anti-inflammatory benefits. One of the most common causes of pain is inflammation and CBD can provide relief and relaxation. The most common uses of CBD topicals include Arthritis and Muscle pain. According to a study made in 2015, topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviors and inflammation without evident side-effects. In addition, many athletes have been using CBD to speed up muscle recovery after rigorous training. CBD topicals can help relax the muscles and reduce inflammation and the physical discomforts caused by intense physical activities. Other studies claim that topical CBD may prove helpful for other skin issues like acne, eczema, psoriasis, and more.
