Discover CBD Ointments

Cannabidiol, one of the most relevant compounds of the Cannabis sativa plant and which has several therapeutic effects, is here to stay.

What are CBD creams and ointments?

CBD creams and ointments are those cosmetic and dermatological products that contain cannabidiol in their composition, either in oil or extract form.

We can divide CBD ointments into three groups based on their consistency:

Body lotions : the most similar to conventional creams that we usually apply to our skin. Although it is true that they have a somewhat thicker consistency than the lotions we could find in shopping centers. In addition, and as with those products, CBD creams have the possibility of integrating other compounds to provide us with better hydration and better nourish our skin.

balms : a Unlike body lotions, such balms have a more runny consistency and often remain mixed with essential oils.

Oils : as its name suggests, the texture of these products is liquid, which makes it the favorite product of many and the most hated of others. Also, as with CBD creams, they commonly integrate other essential oils and vitamins.

What are CBD creams used for?

One of the questions that often arise is about its use, which goes beyond being a simple moisturizer without more.

Despite the fact that CBD creams serve to improve our skin, their use is mainly therapeutic rather than aesthetic. That is why we must choose the option that best suits our needs. However, a specific recommendation cannot be given for everyone, since the treatment for contractures or back pain will not be the same as that of inflammation, but both their use and application mean that these creams can be incorporated into our daily routine. .

Benefits of using CBD creams

One thing is clear, there is more and more evidence of the benefits directly related to the use of CBD (anti-inflammatory, calming, effective against pain).

In fact, the different compounds that we often find in CBD creams and ointments favor its better absorption through the skin. What, together with the characteristics of this organ (the largest in our body) make them especially interesting from a dermatological point of view.

It is important to know that its effect is local, and although cannabidiol is absorbed through the skin, it does not reach the blood and therefore does not reach the central nervous system. If we add to this that CBD does not have psychoactive effects and that its application is limited to specific areas of our body, these products are positioned as a very remarkable option to take into account for those who are taking other types of treatments.

Special mention should be made of the fact that, unlike most medicines, cannabinoids hardly produce side effects, since they have a very low toxicity for our body and do not pose a risk to us.

How to apply CBD creams

Depending on the product we have, the amount we apply to our skin will change, being less in the case of oils and more in the case of lotions.

In addition, it is advisable to give a small massage in the area that we want to treat in order to improve the absorption of the product. Likewise, we must remember as we mentioned before that its use is local, so we will not have to apply a large amount of cream all over the body, but simply in the areas where we have discomfort or the condition that we want to treat.

If we have any doubts, it is always best to read the instructions provided by the manufacturer.

Other components that we can find in CBD creams

A question that frequently arises about CBD creams is related to the additional components that we can find in them.

In general, these ingredients serve to improve the final composition of the product, making it more nutritious and effective. However, if we are especially interested in knowing if theCBD cream or ointment we are using has a specific compound, it is best to look at its ingredient list.

In this way we will know if this product is suitable for us, especially in cases in which there is some type of allergy or specific contraindication.
