The benefits of topical CBD range from stopping the itch of mosquito bites to enhancing the health and beauty of your skin. Let’s take a look at how it works and why you might want to give it a try!
When you directly apply CBD oil to the skin it never reaches the bloodstream, however, it can be absorbed through the skin's surface to interact with nearby cannabinoid CB-2 receptors. The current science also shows, “CBD binds to a special set of receptors in the skin known as TRPV-1 receptors, where it can help feelings of heat, itch, and pain,” says Joshua Zeichner, MD, a New York-based dermatologist. “This explains why it has a soothing effect on the skin. Just as other natural oils are used in skin care, the natural fatty acids and antioxidants in hempseed oil make it a good choice for people with dry skin and eczema.”
This receptor interaction provides the fast pain relieving, soothing and healing properties that help with an array of skin disorders and skin care as well as localized pain management.
Just to look at a few:
Localized Pain Management
On those nights that you just did too much dancing, if there is such a thing, and your legs and feet are throbbing the next morning, bring out the CBD lotion! You can rub it on your sore muscles and along with the other natural botanical ingredients the CBD goes to work to bring quick soothing relief. This is great news for those with arthritis as well as other joint pain discomforts. CBD has also been shown to be a powerful anti-inflammatory and pain reliever in rheumatoid arthritis.
CBD topicals provide an effective natural alternative to topical chemical medications and salves and are quickly becoming a preferred pain therapy.
Skin Irritations and Disorders
Whether you are treating a mosquito bite or the difficult skin disorder of psoriasis CBD topicals provide relief. Insect bites burn and itch and the anti-inflammatory, anti-itch, and anti-bacterial CBD receptor activities reduce or illuminate the burning itching sensation soon after application.
In the case of the difficult recurring skin disorder of psoriasis and other skin irritations, the continued use of CBD Salves, creams and lotions can provide both immediate symptom relief and reduced recurrence. CBD Topicals have also proven to be very effective in the treatment of acne.
Beauty, Skin Care and Anti Aging
You already know that inflammation is at the root of so many skin disorders.
Because of CBD’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, the skin care industry has been developing cannabis and hemp CBD based products at an exponential rate. Balms, creams and lotions containing CBD and a THC/CBD combination are fast becoming a part of a typical skin care regimen.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes environmental free radicals on the skin. Environmental free radicals have been shown to play a significant role in aging skin. One study shows that CBD is a more potent antioxidant for the skin than Vitamins C and E . This is a significant factor in the effectiveness of CBD on the skin.
When you are ready to give CBD skincare a try, make sure you choose organic, high-quality products. With daily use, you will begin to love your glowing, youthful, healthy skin.
