CBD Topicals and Their Benefits

The hemp plant makes many great cannabinoids and these compounds can be made into a multitude of options and possibilities. There are tinctures, capsules and gummy treats, just to name a few, but another way that people have found great enjoyment with CBD based products is in topical form like in creams or balms. 


One area where CBD cream has been found to be helpful is with those suffering from arthritis. A recent report from the Arthritis Foundation showcased the results of surveying over 2,000 participants. 79% of those surveyed had stated that they have considered using, or already have enjoyed, CBD to treat their arthritis pain. 29% of those asked had said that they currently use the natural compound for their arthritis symptoms and, of those who currently utilize CBD, over half were using topical CBD creams.


This particular group had reported that they enjoyed CBD’s anti-inflammatory benefits that have been reported by studies throughout the globe. By being able to target specific areas of the body that may be inflamed or irritating, those who enjoy CBD find that the topical creams are the most convenient. 


There are many benefits to topically applied cannabinoids and the targeted application is just one. Other benefits of balms or creams are that they can be formulated to add cooling effects for extra pain relief, essential oils for aroma therapeutic potential and it can even be made to complete a skin care routine.

How do CBD creams work?


Hemp’s cannabinoids work with the Endocannabinoid system of the human body. Picked up by receptors, the cannabinoids like CBD are used by the body for a multitude of potential benefits. While most people talk of the ECS receptors and their locations throughout the body’s internal organs, there are also receptors in the skin. In fact, there is a high concentration of endocannabinoid receptors found to be in the many dermal layers that make up our protection.


When the cream or balm is applied, the cannabinoids in the formula are picked up by these dermal receptors and work in the specific area where the product has been applied.


What options are there in CBD Creams?


Many people choose to start their CBD journey with topicals because they’re an easy way to “dip your toe” into cannabidiol wellness options. They are not utilized by the interior system and topical creams are easy to enjoy, not to mention that the smaller jars are perfectly portable for your gym or golf bag.
