CBD APPLIED TOPICALLY
When you apply CBD topically, it permeates the skin, which activates nearby cell or cannabinoid receptors and, in turn, helps to reduce and regulate issues such as pain and inflammation. The relief will only be felt in the localized, targeted area of application. That’s because topical CBD products do not make their way into the bloodstream, which is why they work on a local level and not systematically (sublingual ingestion is the quickest way for CBD to enter the bloodstream). Topicals like a CBD Face Cream work similarly. They help to regulate and reduce issues such as redness, irritation and acne on the area of application.
In addition to CBD, many topical CBD products, like rubs and roll-ons, contain essential oils. Not only do these essential oils provide wonderful aromatherapeutic benefits (for example, lavender is calming, while lemongrass invigorates), but they also help to enhance the effectiveness of the CBD on the areas of discomfort.
Most people experience relief after applying topical CBD, but one application may not be enough. Applying topical CBD a few times a day, for a day or two, will result in better and more lasting results.
