Cannabinoids and Your Body


CBD (or cannabidiol) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis. Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis and/ or agricultural hemp. It is recognized for its benefits on human and animal health and can affect nearly every biological process via the endocannabinoid system.

Health benefits of CBD

CBD’s effects are a result of its interactions with the ECS in our body. CBD impacts the ECS indirectly, most often through activation of outside receptors and interaction with enzymes.
Skin is a complex, active structure involving many smaller organ systems, including hair follicles, sweat glands, oil glands, and an immune system. The receptors that respond to the CBD in your topical are present in nearly every type of skin cell.

Although CBD topicals can be used for many of the same reasons as ingestible products, many people are using CBD topicals specifically formulated for the health and appearance of their skin. This is because topical CBD has the potential to soothe and restore balance to distressed skin. When using topical CBD, be sure to apply your product liberally.

CBD topicals can be used any time you feel you might benefit from their therapeutic potential. If you are using topical CBD to care for your skin, you can use your CBD cream in the same manner as any other cream or lotion you may be using to alleviate dry skin, soothe irritation, or protect your skin from the signs of aging.

Most people find that the effects of CBD topicals last nearly as long as ingestible products, but they notice the effects much faster. If you like, you can use topical CBD multiple times throughout the day to keep the effects going strong. If you are using topical CBD for your skincare needs, you can use your product the same way you would use any other cream or lotion. For best results, be sure to apply a liberal amount of your CBD salve or cream to clean, dry, skin, so dirt and debris don’t inhibit product absorption.
