CBD Topicals For Pain Relief
When CBD is applied topically, it interacts with the endocannabinoid system through specific receptors in the skin to provide localized pain relief. This is why cbd topicals like creams and salves are so popular with athletes, people who work in physically demanding jobs, or anyone experiencing joint and muscle aches.
How do I choose the right CBD?
Topical products are easy to use and offer the advantage of more focused results. You can use them as often as you like, although we try to encourage people not to apply CBD products more than three or four times a day because it can cause unnecessary tolerance.
In addition to their targeted effects, cbd topicals contain a host of other beneficial ingredients such as essential oils, shea butter, shea oil, cocoa butter, and more. This means that in addition to reducing inflammation, CBD creams and salves can nourish the skin, boost circulation, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, balance oil production, and even help treat conditions like acne and eczema.
Aside from their anti-inflammatory properties, CBD topicals are also great for treating pain associated with arthritis and fibromyalgia. They are also effective at easing tension in the muscles, as well as soothing irritated skin. The best cbd lotions and salves for pain are typically those that have other skin-loving ingredients and are free of sulfates, parabens, and dyes. For example, Extract Labs offers a CBD muscle rub that is both vegan and fragrance-free, which makes it particularly gentle for sensitive skin.
