How CBD Aids Your Skin
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. Cannabis farmers grow specific hemp plants to extract CBD from their crops due to the extremely low levels of THC, to produce various CBD products, including CBD topicals.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) governs many functions in the human body, including the ability to process pain, sleep, inflammation, mood and more. Hemp plants contain phytocannabinoids that interact with the ECS. Research has shown that CBD has many therapeutic properties especially when used transdermally, or applied on the skin. Variances in CBD transdermal or topical products are typically in lotion, cream, salve and balms.
CBD & Skincare
CBD has hit the skincare industry by storm. Lotions and creams are formulated with a thicker, higher fat consistency that helps to emollient our skin. Patients with skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, dry skin and other abnormalities have shown significant improvement when incorporating CBD topicals in their routine.
Salves and balms are made with oils or beeswax that helps them be slowly absorbed through the skin, perfect for patients with muscle aches or chronic pain conditions. Roll-on tinctures are an alternative to salves and balms and help aid in joint pain relief.
