CBD products come in a variety of forms—whether you want to smoke it, eat it, or drop it under your tongue, there’s something for everyone. If you’re still looking for the right kind of CBD product for you, you might find a winner with CBD lotion.
CBD topicals come in several different forms besides lotions, including creams, salves, lip balms, and massage oils. They’re one of the easiest products for beginners to access and use, and they have a multitude of pain-relieving benefits.
What is CBD Lotion?
Like THC, CBD is a cannabinoid (compound) produced by the cannabis plant. However, unlike THC, CBD won’t get you high. CBD lotions are infused with CBD and applied topically, allowing users to gain some transdermal benefits of the compound. Just like other products, you can find CBD topicals across the CBD spectrum, from full spectrum to isolate.
When to Use CBD Lotion
As with many claims about the benefits of CBD, further research is needed to make concrete conclusions. However, CBD lotions and topicals may be helpful for easing the symptoms of several conditions.
For certain skin conditions, like acne, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis, CBD topicals may provide relief. The potential anti-inflammatory properties of CBD could reduce the swelling, redness, and pain associated with these conditions in addition to improving the appearance of the skin overall.
CBD lotion may also help ease joint pain—not as a numbing agent but, again, as a product with anti-inflammatory properties. Those who suffer from arthritis or chronic pain may be able to find localized relief with CBD lotions. For athletes, CBD topicals may also ease sore muscles.
Whichever topical CBD product you choose, keep a close eye on the ingredient list for potential skin irritants. It’s also important to buy from trustworthy sellers who disclose their ingredients and CBD extraction processes.
