CBD is an incredible substance for many reasons. But one of the most unique and amazing things about it is that you can use CBD topically, not just orally. Topical CBD is great for alleviating skin dryness and irritation. It is also great for calming muscle soreness and joint pain. While applying CBD topical products is pretty simple, there are a few tips that may come in handy as you start using these products.
Don't be afraid to try more specialized products.
You can find general-purpose CBD lotions and oils that you can use all over your body. However, there are also more specialized products, such as joint creams, facial moisturizers, and lip balms. While these products all contain the same active ingredient—CBD—they often contain different inactive ingredients, and those inactive ingredients can affect the type of experience you have using the product. So, for this reason, it is often worth buying more specialized topical CBD products. If you plan on using CBD on your lips, buy a lip balm. If you plan on using it on your joints, buy a joint cream.
Apply a little at a time.
Dosing topical CBD is a little harder than dosing oral CBD. Everyone absorbs it a bit differently and at different rates. You do not want to use more than you need. So, regardless of what topical product you are using, start slow. Apply a small amount, wait about a half-hour, and see how you feel before applying any more. Over time, as with oral CBD, you will hone in on the right dose for you.
Choose products with simpler ingredients.
Try to steer clear of products with a lot of perfumes and artificial scents. The more of these ingredients the product contains, the more likely it is to irritate your skin. That is the opposite of what you're trying to achieve with a CBD product. Some of these ingredients may also interfere with the absorption of CBD. So, when shopping for CBD topicals, those with fewer ingredients tend to be the better choices. Many all-natural, vegan, and organic brands carry limited-ingredient CBD topicals that work well.
As you begin using CBD topicals, make sure you keep the advice above in mind. Pay attention to what you are buying and ease your way into using the CBD a little at a time. Before long, using these products will feel like second nature.Share
