How Can Applying CBD to Skin Benefit Me?
Topical creams and Balms come in a number of different forms. Some combine the cooling or heating effects for treating muscle injuries or joint pain and others are combined with moisturisers and anti-aging serums. Little to none of the CBD applied to skin will make it into your bloodstream making its bioavailability very low, however we have CBD receptors in and near our skin, which it’s believed to bind to, and some people find it helps target specific pains like arthritis or sore muscles. The antioxidants found in CBD are considered to have an anti-aging effect. Most sources will suggest taking cbd drops alongside muscle rubs/balms to be an effective way to treat pains.
