CBD Topicals (Lotions, Salves, and Creams)
How are CBD lotions, salves, and creams beneficial?
Topical application of CBD by using a CBD lotion, salve, or cream is a popular method that can help alleviate muscle pain soreness, arthritic joint pain/inflammation, and various skin conditions. CBD is a very powerful antioxidant (even more powerful than vitamins C and E) and can be a great addition to your daily skin care routine. CBD has anti-inflammatory and anti-aging effects on the body that can protect us from free radical damage and reverse signs of aging.
Whats the difference between a salve and a lotion?
You're probably wondering what the difference is between a salve and a lotion. A CBD salve is made with a wax or oil base which makes it a bit thicker and greaser but in turn has a more lasting effect on the skin. Salves are recommended for individuals with deep joint and muscle pain. CBD Lotions on the other hand have a water base making them absorb faster for more instant effect and leaves a less greasy surface. Lotions would be recommended for pain relief, relaxation, and daily care routines.
Whats the difference between CBD isolate and CBD full spectrum?
CBD isolate is pure isolated CBD taken from the hemp plant. CBD full spectrum contains other compounds in addition to CBD derived from the hemp plant. Learn more about CBD bioavailability & methods of intake.
