CBD oil is all the rage right now, especially since CBD was federally legalized in America in the 2018 Farm Bill. CBD stands for Cannabidoil which is generally sourced from the hemp plant(cannabis sativa) and is believed to work in conjunction with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is also commonly referred to as the ECS and is responsible for maintaining the body in a state of homeostasis or balance.
Millions of Americans suffer from conditions like acne and psoriasis, and the wondrous hemp plant may help with promoting healthy skin. The best products, including may help support mobility and promote beautiful, glowing skin with very few known side effects.
In fact some people even use CBD in lip balms and face masks as part of their skincare regimen. Keep reading to see the complete list of possible benefits and how people are using CBD creams, CBD body lotion and topical CBD salves for skin care.
Here are the benefits of using CBD lotion
1. Wrinkles & Anti-Aging
CBD is being studied as a possible antioxidant, moisturizer, and anti-inflammatory, so it may have great potential as a supplement to add to your anti-aging skincare regime.
Since CBD oil is so similar to the makeup of the lipids already found in our skin, CBD lotions, CBD Salves, CBD creams and CBD balms may be able to promote oil production.
Oil production prevents dry skin, and may help to prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Wrinkles show up more on dry skin.
2. CBD Cream for Acne
Acne is a skin condition that affects almost everyone at one time or another. Everyone knows someone with acne, especially if you look back to your younger days. In teenage years, it seems like almost everyone has had issues with acne. People with acne also state that they are in search of pain relief. CBD oil lotions and hemp oil derived from the hemp plant is sometimes used to help people address acne concerns on their skin. These products are also believed to have very few side effect.
Because of hemp oil high concentration of essential fatty acids, and because the CBD makeup matches the lipids of human skin, CBD oil has a strong ability to moisturize the skin and get deep under the pores. For those with acne, cannabidiol is worth looking into. At the present time CBD is not FDA approved for the treatment of acne.
3. CBD lotion for Psoriasis
Psoriasis is an autoimmune, inflammatory skin condition that affects over 8 million Americans. CBD oil body lotion may help to promote healthy skin, by keeping inflammation under control
While there are many pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory medications currently on the market for skin care, CBD oil is being explored as a natural alternative that may be beneficial in promoting healthy skin care. There is a general consensus and a movement for people to stop using prescription meds therefore the demand for alternative products is high.
Another skin condition most often caused by allergies to pollens and other substances in the air is eczema. Eczema is an uncomfortable, itchy, and sometimes painful condition affecting millions of people’s skin. CBD oil is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and may help with pain relief and support skin care.
Because of CBD lotions ability to moisturize, they may be a great candidate for soothing eczema on the skin. Look for lotions and creams that also contain ingredients that are hypoallergenic or unscented to prevent further irritation.
5. Rashes & Burns
You get it. Anything that has to do with skin irritation or dryness may be soothed by the moisturizing effects of CBD. CBD cream and CBD lotion is an effective natural emollient.
Rashes and burns are exactly that – irritated skin. So it’s no surprise that CBD products may help to ease these skin conditions as well. However these types of skin conditions can be severe, so never use a CBD product on an open or inflamed area of the body.
Arthritis is a condition that affects millions of Americans. It’s the leading cause of disability in the country.Again, CBD is not FDA approved to treat cure or prevent medical conditions including arthritis therefore more research is required to conclusively prove CBD oil lotions effect on alleviating arthritis-related pain.
However, many people are trying CBD directly on the skin for various mobility issues. By applying CBD products directly to the skin, the CBD quickly penetrates through the pores. It is recommended to check with your physician before trying any new supplement, or topical for your skin and skincare needs.
There are many causes for arthritis, most of which are due to inflammation of the joints. Conditions like Lyme disease can worsen the effects of arthritis.
The best CBD topical, when applied directly to the site of discomfort, can be massaged into the area. Many times the massage will also help with the pain as well.
It’s important to note that this type of treatment, like most other topicals, is not meant to be a cure for any condition. CBD is meant to help people support mobility and joint issues.
7. Muscle & Joint Pain
Since CBD is new to the market, only having been legalized recently, and is not FDA approved, there is currently a lack of conclusive research proving the effectiveness of CBD in treating aches and pains.
However, many people who have tried a topical CBD lotion, whether they use a CBD cream or CBD lotion, or CBD salve have reported improvements in their muscle and joint function.
The National Academies Institute has conducted numerous studies that have shown significant improvements in adult patients suffering from chronic pain, muscle and joint discomfort.
While there is more research required, the studies done so far on both humans and animals are promising.
Nausea is a terrible feeling and is one of the most common side effects of chemotherapy. It is often what causes the quality of life to drastically diminish.
People suffering with nausea often find the aromatherapy associated with CBD topicals to be soothing. CBD is being explored as a natural supplement to help ease nausea issues but at the present time it is not FDA approved for nausea.
Types of CBD Topicals
CBD infused lotions and creams are made with three different varieties of hemp derived CBD. These three are Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum CBD and Isolate. Both Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum topical CBD will produce an entourage effect as there are multiple cannabinoids in the products. Below break down the differences:
Full spectrum refers to using everything from the cannabis hemp plant including THC. Since everything is used it is commonly referred to as Full Spectrum. Users of full spectrum CBD products claim the experience an entourage effect as the entire plant is used. Those who do not want to consume THC should avoid Full spectrum products.
Broad Spectrum refers to using everything from the cannabis sativa plant except the THC is removed. Supporters of Broad Spectrum CBD extract often state that they are receiving all the beneficial cannabinoids minus Tetrahydracannabinoid. The entire line of CBD Skin care products sold at Palm Organix™ are tested to ensure the THC is (0.0%). During oil production, this unwanted compound is removed.
CBD Isolate is when just one cannabinoid is taken and isolated. CBN or CBG products are good examples when that is the only component present. CBD products that are isolates will not have the entourage effect.
Lastly, it is important to note that Hempseed oil is not the same as hemp extract or CBD. Hempseed oil is made by pressing the cannabis sativa seed oil from the plant. this process yields little to no medical value as the important ingredients come from the leaves and stems. Beware of brands offering hempseed oil as CBD oil.
CBD strength in lotions and creams
A very important detail you need to know when choosing to use hemp derived CBD topicals is the amount of CBD that is in the product formulation, usually listed as MG of CBD per bottle or jar. Most CBD topical formulations will contain 500mg to 1000mg of CBD per bottle. For formulations that contain less you may need to apply more often, and for very highly concentrated products there may be some restrictions in the recommended daily use.
This one compound, CBD, may help with so many different ailments and conditions that can effect healthy skin. While much research is still needed, there is potential for CBD lotions to help promote and support good skin.
Perhaps the best thing about CBD is that it’s 100% natural. In addition to the cannabinoids, Most CBD lotions contain other natural ingredients like camphor, argan oil, menthol, or Vitamin A, manuka honey, Coconut oil, shea butter, and Vitamin C so unless you have an allergy to one of the ingredients, it might be worth a try.
