CBD creams are water-based products from which CBD is absorbed through pores in the skin and penetrates deeply into the layers of tissue below. CBD balms are oil-based products, which allows the CBD to keep its integrity on the surface of your skin for much longer, giving you long-lasting relief on your upper dermal layers. Products of this sort (sometimes called CBD topicals) include CBD balms, creams, ointment, lotion, masks, bath bombs, and more. CBD balm and cream products serve a variety of needs, including relief for minor aches and pains that can occur in the muscles and joints, as well as soothing care for the skin.
To understand how CBD balm and lotion products work, you need to first understand how CBD works. CBD (cannabidiol) is one of a group of chemical compounds found in cannabis, called cannabinoids. Your body actually makes its own cannabinoids, which are called endocannabinoids. These are part of a cell-signalling system in the body called the endocannabinoid system. Endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters that attach to receptors throughout the body. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the central nervous system and the brain. CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral nervous system, as well as other organs and tissues. When endocannabinoids bind to these receptors, they send out messages to the various systems and organs and help them to maintain homeostasis, or balance. This helps your body to regulate such crucial functions as sleep, mood, memory, motor control, appetite, pain management, stress, and more.
There are other important receptors, as well: TRPV1 and TRPA1. TRPV1 works with the regulation of body temperature and in perceiving the sensations of heat and pain, while TRPA1 senses itching, cold, and environmental irritants. CBD and other cannabinoids mimic the effects of the body’s endocannabinoids, bringing wellness support throughout the body. CBD balms and creams are designed to make the most of that interaction with the TRPV1 and TRPA1 receptors, in particular, giving soothing relief for skin irritation as well as pain relief in the deeper muscle tissue and joints. Because CBD muscle balm and related CBD products are so effective, people return to them again and again for relief against pain and inflammation.
For CBD muscle balm products and creams, simply rub the CBD balm onto the affected area of your skin. You should feel the effects of the CBD within an hour, though you may feel it as quickly as 15 minutes depending on bioavailability factors. If not, you can reapply the CBD balm over the affected area, if necessary. We recommend not applying CBD lotion or balms more than three or four times in a day.
A lot of impurities can creep into CBD products if you don’t choose a reputable CBD brand. The hemp plant (from which CBD is derived) is a bioaccumulator, meaning that it sucks up pretty much everything in the soil that surrounds it. At CBDfx, we only use CBD derived from naturally grown hemp, so that you never have to worry about pesticides, heavy metals, or other potentially harmful chemicals. We also use safe extraction processes, so you never have to worry about solvent residues, as in cheaper CBD products. You can verify the purity and potency of our CBD products by looking at independent, third-party lab reports, which we provide for all of our CBD balm items, as well as all of our other CBD supplements. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities!
The UK government doesn’t allow companies to make any medical recommendations regarding the use of CBD, including recommendations for using CBD for pain. We can, however, tell you that many people report experiencing soothing pain relief when they use CBD. And there is a lot of promising research in the area of CBD oil and pain management. We recommend that you try CBD for yourself to see if it works for you!
With CBD balm or cream, you should feel the effects of the CBD within an hour, though you may feel it as quickly as 15 minutes depending on bioavailability factors (such as height, weight, metabolism, tolerance to CBD, and other factors). If you don’t feel the effects, you can reapply the CBD cream over the affected area, if necessary. While CBD is non-toxic, we recommend not applying CBD cream more than three or four times in a day.
CBD muscle and skin care products, such as CBD balm, can offer relief that lasts up to six hours, depending on bioavailability factors. These factors can include height, weight, metabolism, CBD tolerance, and other variables.
Though CBD is generally well-tolerated, it can cause side effects, such as dry mouth, diarrhea, drowsiness, and reduced appetite. CBD can also interact with some medications. If you’re taking another medication, we recommend that you consult with your doctor before using CBD or any other new supplements.
CBD generally helps with minor aches and pains in muscle and surrounding tissue. If you’re having severe nerve pain, you should consult with your doctor. Legally, we cannot make medical recommendations regarding the use of CBD.
CBD generally helps relieve minor muscle and joint pain. If you’re having severe back pain, you should consult with your doctor. Legally, we cannot make medical recommendations regarding the use of CBD.
It is illegal to recommend CBD for medical use in the UK at this time. Please consult with your doctor for the best treatment for arthritis or any medical condition.
No. The CBD in all of our products, including all balms and creams, is derived from hemp. Hemp is the low-THC form of cannabis (as opposed to marijuana). Hemp-derived CBD products do not contain enough THC to get you high.
CBD products are legal in the UK as long as their THC content is less than 0.01%. All of our CBD supplements, including our balms and creams, comply with UK law.
