Why are CBD Topicals So Effective?

As more and more research is conducted on cannabinoids like CBD and the endocannabinoid system, newer ways to use cannabinoid-based products are being developed, including the use of our largest organ — our skin.

Cannabis topicals include balms, salves, lotions, and oils that are infused with active cannabinoids and are applied to and absorbed directly through your skin. Topicls have grown in popularity in recent years, with cannabinoids like CBD making their way into a variety of commercial products – from lip balm and massage oils to cosmetics and bath products – but what makes CBD topicals so effective?

Why a CBD Topical?

Rather than ingesting CBD orally, which will affect the whole body and can take up to 2 hours or more to fully experience the effects, the topical application of cannabinoids allows them to be absorbed directly into the application area for faster and more focused relief.

Like all CBD hemp oil products, CBD oil topicals are non-psychoactive, and since the cannabinoids in these topicals interact with CB2 receptors near the skin, activating the endocannabinoid system, they are never absorbed into the bloodstream.

CBD is also more permeable to the skin than THC and other cannabinoids and are more likely to stimulate the CB2 cannabinoid receptors, making them the popular choice for the manufacture of cannabis topicals.
