CBD Lotions & Topicals - Using CBD For Skin Care.
If you're looking for one of the most effective ways to use CBD - you've found it. Our skin is the largest organ of the human body.
Look, I think we all know using CBD Lotion is slow compared to taking capsules or tinctures, but CBD does absorb into the skin and bloodstream and allows for a continuous absorption effect over a longer period of time. CBD topicals are becoming increasingly popular and are a huge reason why Savage CBD decided to go all in on our brand new CBD Lotions.
What are CBD Topicals?
CBD Topicals are (but not limited to) lotions, creams, oils, salves, and balms that have gone through an infusion process with cannabidiol. Unlike THC cannabidiol; is rich with cannabinoids which our body loves! Like cannabinoids, CBD interacts with the receptors that comprise the endocannabinoid system of our body.
When using CBD topically (on your skin) it is absorbed through the pores, into the bloodstream and interacts with the endocannabinoid system, which is how therapeutic effects are produced. Since topicals are typically used in only certain areas, the effects are only local to that area where it was applied. This method of using CBD can actually be better since you can target certain parts of the body.
How to Use CBD Lotion For Skin Care
1. Determine where you want to apply your lotion, this can be pretty simple - if it's meant for your face you would apply it to your face. Now if you're using CBD for a therapeutic effect or for pain you want to be more strategic. For instance, if you're getting a tension headache you may want to apply it to the back of your neck.
2. Clean the area before applying CBD. Every day we come into contact with loads of bacteria, you don't need to take a full on shower, but before applying the lotion clean the area first.
3. Apply a good amount. Don't waste your product, but don't be afraid to apply the product in multiple layers thoroughly massaging it into your skin. Wait until it dries then apply another layer.
Benefits of Using CBD Topicals
With all CBD products, the list of benefits is huge! One of the biggest is treating the selected area immediately. For example, if you're dealing with back or knee pain you can apply CBD directly on the affected area.
Also, CBD Lotions can also help treat mild skin irritations such as scratches, bug bites, abrasions, dry skin, and sometimes even stretch marks! Also in some cases it may help with other conditions like acne. This is because CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory and carries some antibacterial properties.
