Our feet are consistently overworked and underappreciated. It’s not until we stub our toes or get a bad foot cramp that we pause to consider taking better care of our tootsies. Fortunately, CBD creams and lotions can not only offer relief from aches and pain, but can also soothe irritated or inflamed skin.
But how does CBD work, and why is CBD foot cream such a potentially valuable tool for good foot care? Let’s begin our examination of CBD foot care with a closer look at the potent chemical compound, cannabidiol.
WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol is a compound produced by the cannabis plant. Known more commonly as CBD, it’s one of a group of over 100 such compounds, known as cannabinoids. Other cannabinoids include CBG, CBC, CBN, and THC. The cannabis plant produces cannabinoids through tiny organic growths on its surface called trichomes. Trichomes generate cannabinoids in order to protect the plant from insect predators, grazing animals, and intense heat or cold, as well as to attract pollinators.
Humans and other vertebrate animals produce their own cannabinoids. These endocannabinoids serve as neurotransmitters in the body’s endocannabinoid system, sending signals to receptors in various systems and organs throughout the body, helping them to maintain homeostasis, or balance. This helps the body to regulate such important functions as pain, stress, appetite, mood, memory, motor control, sleep, and more.
When you consume phytocannabinoids (plant-based cannabinoids), like CBD, they mimic the body’s own endocannabinoids, bolstering the endocannabinoid system and helping the body to regulate these vital functions. This creates a plethora of health-boosting benefits, which are the reason CBD has become such a popular wellness supplement, available in products as diverse as CBD gummies, CBD creams, CBD oil tinctures, CBD capsules, and even CBD for dogs.
Incidentally, our CBD products are all made from a low-THC form of cannabis called hemp, which is non-intoxicating and is legal in the UK. None of our hemp products, including the CBD foot care items in this article, can get you high.
THE BENEFITS OF CBD CREAM FOR FEET
Among the receptors signaled by CBD are CB2 receptors, which can be found in the peripheral nervous system, and other organs and tissues. Other notable receptors include TRPV1 and TRPA1 receptors. TRPV1 helps the body to regulate its temperature and the perception of heat and pain sensations. TRPA1 senses cold, itching, and environmental irritants.
Topical CBD products, like creams and lotions, are applied directly to the affected area of the body, sending support straight to these receptors, soothing skin irritation and inflammation, as well as delivering pain relief to deeper muscle tissue. As you might expect, this can work wonders for your feet.
