Topical CBD Cream and Salves


CBD possesses many beneficial properties that may help with a variety of ailments, both mental and physical. You may already know that CBD could help encourage better sleep, reduced stress, and help provide muscle pain relief. But did you know that in addition to these benefits, CBD could also help your skin? Several studies have already shown CBD to be beneficial when used as a part of one's daily skincare routine, and scientists continue to study the use of CBD on the skin to confirm initial findings. 

In this blog, we will not only discuss the benefits of using CBD on your skin, but we will also address common questions that are asked about Topical CBD Products.


How to Use CBD Cream 

If you have recently suffered from physical trauma, whether it be a bruise that won’t go away or simply a stiff neck gained from working at a computer all day, you will find CBD creams and topicals to provide the relief you may have been seeking. CBD topicals work with your body to provide relief in many forms and truly elevate your pain while potentially promoting an inner healing through the reduction of inflammation and tension.

Depending on your body type and prior experience with CBD, we recommend gently rubbing small amounts of the CBD topical onto the affected area of the body. If this does not have the desired effect, re-apply with a larger amount of product. Keep away from eyes. For external use only.


Healing Properties Of CBD Topicals 

1. Antioxidant

CBD is derived from the hemp plant, which has been known to have some antioxidant properties. Topical use of antioxidants can be linked to reduced inflammation, redness, fine lines, and wrinkles. In general, antioxidants are thought to be in the anti-aging category of skincare.


2. Anti-Inflammatory 

Several studies have shown that CBD has anti-inflammatory qualities and may help reduce the pain and swelling that is caused by inflammation. Our CBD Potion Lotion is specifically formulated to help relieve this type of discomfort and may also help reduce muscle pain and soreness. 


3. Soothing

CBD is no stranger when it comes to pain relief. Hence, it is no surprise that when you use CBD Topicals you may also experience a soothing effect on top of your pain relief. Customers have reported that using a CBD Topical, such as the Potion Lotion, has helped them to reduce the itchiness and redness associated with bug bites and other skin irritations. Other CBD Topicals, such as the Healing Hemp Butter have been used by consumers to help sooth aching muscles, hydrate the skin and ease the pain of sunburns. 


Does Topical CBD Show Up On Drug Tests? 

The short answer for the above question is “no", using CBD cream, lotion, salves, balms, etc will not cause you to fail a drug test.  It is important to keep in mind that your skin acts as a barrier between the outside world and the inner workings of your body. So, while the CBD will be absorbed into the skin to help soothe and relieve pain, it does not reach your bloodstream and there for cannot be detected by a test.
