All about CBD topicals 

You’ve probably used CBD in one way or another, and you might’ve heard about these topicals. Are they worth it? 

Read on to find out a bit more about CBD topicals, the benefits, and the best ways to use these as well. 

What are these 

Topicals by definition are basically products that are applied directly onto your skin. 

CBD types use CBD in order to properly soothe the skin, help provide nourishment, and also improve the appearance of such. 

They can help with relieving dryness, improving the look of the skin, and also helping with inflammation and other skin conditions that may be a problem. 

There are different types including: 

  • Oils that infuse CBD in them, creating full-spectrum products 
  • Creams that moisturize the skin and offer a firmer barrier 
  • Lotions that have more water, are lighter, don’t have grease, and will maintain hydration 
  • Balm s which are solidified oils that melt directly into your skin 

How it works 

Basically, when they’re used they get absorbed into the endocannabinoid system, which is a network that has different receptors that can help with everything from the nervous to the immune system to even the skin and your digestive tract. 

The ECS is all over the place, and pretty much, the goal of this is balance. This prevents you from being also wand sluggish as well. 

It can be used to help keep everything properly in balanced, and it can do it in defend ways: 

  • Proliferate which helps with skin cell preproduction. When out of control this causes psoriasis 
  • Differentiation for functions 
  • Helping to reduce immune response in your skin area. 

How it interacts is simple. pretty much the substance goes from high concentration to lower concentration. 

The epidermis is a few layers that are the primary barrier. The dermis is below this, and while created with elastic tissue and collagen, it has nerve endings, capillaries, follicles, and also glands too. When CBD gets here, it goes to the bloodstream.

The CBD comes in contact with keratinocytes at the outer layer, and it can help preserve the endocannabinoids at the epidermis too, and it can help with topical wounds, itching, various acne, and even control the growth of hair as a result of this. 

It can go into the bloodstream, but for the most part it rarely makes it all the way down to the capillary level. 

But if you put it on the forearm, neck, head, or trunk, or even inflamed areas, it can immediately go there. 

The benefits? 

Well, we did go through a bit of the benefits, but when tested on humans, there are some treatment effects that can benefit rom this, including eczema and others. 

Soothing, reddened and sensitive kind of skin chapped and rough skin, and even aging can possibly be changed with the use of this. 

There are very rare side effects wit this. Sometimes though, for some people it may cause dermatitis, but that applies to any kind of application of this. 

Because the side effects of this are usually experienced when the CBD gets to the bloodstream, there might be other effects, including diarrhea, fatigue, headaches, and even changes in the appetite and also changes in your weight too.

But is it safe to use? The short answer is yes, it’s overall pretty safe to use. If you’re not sure whether or not it’s good for the skin, do a test patch on your skin before applying it to the larger area. If you notice that there isn’t a response, it’s good to use there too.
