Topical CBD is a selection of products including balms, creams, lotions, salves and a range of other specialised skin application products such as CBD serums, CBD rolls on and CBD eye cream. CBD Topical products are applied directly onto the skin of an affected area of the body intended for treatment, usually relieving pain or inflammation....
What is the difference between CBD lotion, cream, balm, salve and ointments?
There isn't a whole lot of difference between these products apart from their variations in consistency. Usually creams and lotions have include an increased water based solution allowing them to be applied over a wider surface area, leading to faster absorption of CBD into the skin. Salves and ointments are of a thicker consistency and will adhere to the skin for a longer period of time than CBD lotion or CBD face moisturiser, this allows for slower CBD absorption allowing the affected area to be treated over a prolonged period of time.
Depending on your own requirements of use it is always best to consult a doctor before starting any course of treatment, consulting a health professional will ensure the most suitable CBD product is administered to treat your specific ailment. If you decide to select your own course of CBD treatment it is usually down to trial and error, working out which product works most efficiently for you.
Will CBD Cream Make Me High?
CBD Cream does not get you high due to its lack of THC content. THC is a cannabinoid molecule that binds to open receptors in the brain producing a psychoactive effect. CBD topicals are applied to the skin which acts as a barrier prohibiting the transfer of any THC molecules into the bloodstream, this is if the product contains any trace amounts.
How much CBD balm should I use?
Research has shown that CBD is one of the least toxic substances for the body, this means that it is almost impossible to overdose on any cannabidiol product. Always begin your CBD application in low dosage levels in order to gauge which treatment routine is most suitable for you.
