CBD Topicals

Cannabidiol (CBD) has become a popular chemical substance, favoured for its benefits as a wellness compound. Despite the limited evidence supporting its numerous health claims, the compound still fascinates thousands, if not millions, who regularly use it in one form or another.

CBD is a phytocannabinoid present in the cannabis plant. It is found in a higher quantity in hemp, compared to marijuana. In contrast to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychotropic component of hemp, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound – it gives no “high.” CBD has been touted for its efficacy on several disorders, including aches and pains, inflammation, depression, anxiety, and skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. CBD’s effective treatment of a wide array of medical conditions is likely the reason for its increasing popularity.

A CBD topical is formed when CBD is added to a cream, lotion, or salve. In other words, CBD topicals are products infused with CBD to be applied to the skin for localized effect. They are used to lessen muscle or joint pains, aches, and improve the skin. Like every CBD product, a CBD topical can be broad-spectrum, full-spectrum, or a CBD isolates formula.

Full-spectrum CBD topicals contain all the active ingredients of hemp, such as CBD, terpenes, flavonoids, essential oils, amino acid, and a small amount of THC (usually less than 0.3%). Broad-spectrum topicals contain all constituents as seen in full-spectrum, but lack THC. CBD isolate topicals have only pure CBD extract. All CBD topicals also contain several skincare ingredients, vitamins, some herbal extracts, and essential oils.

Benefits of CBD Topicals

  • CBD topicals have been used for the effective treatment of pain and inflammation reduction.
  • CBD topicals are anti-ageing, by harnessing the antioxidant properties of vitamins and other skincare ingredients.
  • CBD topicals produce a more specific and direct effect than other CBD products, as they are applied to the desired body spot for localised effect.
