How Do Topical CBD Products Help with Pain?
Topical CBD products work by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system is responsible for maintaining homeostasis, or balance, in the body. When applied to the skin, CBD oil can help to reduce inflammation and pain. Although it is not FDA-regulated, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that CBD helps reduce pain. In addition to providing pain relief, topical CBD products can also help to improve the appearance of the skin. CBD is a natural antioxidant and can help to reduce inflammation. This can lead to reduced redness and improved skin clarity.
How Long Does It Take for the Skin to Absorb the CBD?
When you apply CBD oil to your skin, it will interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system right away. However, it can take up to an hour for the CBD to be fully absorbed into the skin. This means that you may not feel the full effects of the CBD for some time after you have applied it. If you are using CBD oil for pain relief, we recommend applying it as needed throughout the day. You should start to feel relief within an hour or so. If you are using it for other purposes, such as skin care, you can apply it once or twice a day as needed.
How Much CBD Should You Use?
The amount of CBD you use will depend on the product you are using and your own personal preferences. Start with a small amount and increase it as needed until you find the desired effect. It is also important to remember that everyone’s body is different, so what works for one person may not work for another. If you are new to using topical CBD, we recommend starting slow and increasing the amount you use as needed. For example, our Trauma Oil contains 6000mg of CBD, so you really only need a small amount to feel relief.
Are There Any Side Effects?
CBD is a very safe compound and there are no known side effects of using it topically. However, everyone’s skin is different and some people may be allergic to certain ingredients in CBD products. If you experience any side effects, such as redness, itching, or swelling, stop using the product immediately and consult a doctor if necessary.
What Other Ways Can You Use CBD?
As we mentioned, there are many ways to use CBD. In addition to topical products, you can also use water soluble CBD oil, capsules, gummies, and more. It is really up to you what method of ingestion you prefer.
