CBD Topical Benefits

CBD stands for Cannabidiol

CBD is the second most prevalent active ingredient found in marijuana and doesn't have the psychoactive effects that THC has. Meaning you will not get "high" from using or applying CBD topically. You can slather all of the CBD you want all over your body. You won't get high but, you may feel like you're body is floating.


A study from the European Journal of Pain showed CBD applied to the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrating the ability for pain control. To put it plainly, CBD works with our very own Endocannabinoid system by blocking the signals for pain and itching.


Reliable topical CBD products don’t just mask pain or inflammation as some over-the-counter topical pain relief creams do. They actually can make the pain go away for a certain time period, says Matthew Halpert, an instructor of immunology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. This is because of the high concentration of cannabinoid receptors on the skin. Cannabinoid receptors are part of the body’s endocannabinoid system, a body-wide system discovered in the 1990s that affects many important functions.

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are the aromatic compounds found in many plants, though many people associate them with cannabis because they are found in high concentration in the cannabis plant. CBD terpenes enhance the therapeutic effects. Terpenes are found not only in plants but, anything that grows such as fruits and lavender. Terpenes are antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. Limonene one of the most common terpenes that people recognize from its scent. As it suggests it gives off a citrus smell like a lemon or an orange


“It’s better to get oils that are less processed because that means it’s closer to the original that’s in the plant,” says Martin A. Lee, the founder and director of Project CBD and author of Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana–Medical, Recreational, and Scientific.
