CBD Topicals

Anyone in tune with today’s wellness trends will most likely know that CBD is a hot topic and that CBD products currently are all the rage. Most of the conversation seems to be centered on CBD oils and tinctures; however, there is an entire spectrum of CBD products available for consumers to purchase, ranging from gummies and edibles to capsules and beverages, and CBD topical cream is one of them.

What are CBD Topicals

A CBD topical could come in the form of CBD cream, CBD ointment, or even cannabis lotion. Lotions, creams, and salves are meant to be applied directly to the skin — not ingested, as with many other CBD products. They will not enter your bloodstream, meaning that the benefits of CBD topicals will be concentrated on the area in which you choose to apply them. 

How Does CBD Topical Cream Work?

CBD topicals are not transdermal, meaning they won’t penetrate your skin deep enough to enter your bloodstream, but they will soak into your skin’s pores enough to create an effect. They target the areas where they are applied. The higher the concentration of CBD in your topical product and the more liberally you apply it will determine how well the product works for you. 

Some people who use CBD topical products do so for helping to relieve and soothe discomfort associated with joints and muscles. CBD oil contains cannabidiol, which essentially acts as signals in your body to help you manage various functions, such as sleep and pain. CBD creams are particularly effective in helping your body maintain a normal inflammatory response.

The Benefits of CBD Creams

CBD is short for cannabidiol, a compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike fellow compound THC, CBD does not produce the infamous “high” associated with cannabis.

CBD acts on your body’s cannabinoid receptors. These receptors belong to the endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in a variety of functions in the body, helping to regulate pain sensation and maintain healthy joints.

Since CBD creams are applied directly to the skin, the effects that come with them may be felt quicker than if you were waiting for ingested CBD products to enter your bloodstream. 

How to Use CBD Topicals

Just as with any other lotion or cream that you slather on your body, you should apply your topical CBD product fairly liberally. Some people use CBD topicals, especially those that are made with local anesthetics such as lidocaine, to help ease pain or discomfort. CBD topicals need to be applied liberally for the best results. You should also choose products with higher concentrations of CBD.

Why Choose Oliver’s Harvest CBD Topical Creams?

Oliver’s Harvest offers some of the best CBD creams for sale. They specialize in CBD lotion for physical discomfort with two such products currently available– CBD with Capsaicin Cream and  CBD with Lidocaine Cream

Oliver’s Harvest is a seed-to-oil CBD hemp company that controls every step of the production of its oils and CBD products. This includes an organic farm, the extraction process, and the manufacturing process in its facility in Asheville, North Carolina. The company’s products all are pharmacist formulated and tested in third-party labs for quality.

Both of the CBD salves Oliver’s Harvest sells are meant to penetrate the skin quickly to provide localized relief. They are an alternative to taking oral medications, which can come with side effects and complications. But while these two products might look and sound similar, they do have their differences.

CBD with Capsaicin Cream

The CBD with Capsaicin Cream acts through two active ingredients – capsaicin and CBD. Capsaicin is an active component of hot peppers with some great health benefits. It works by acting upon nerve endings, depleting them, and decreasing pain intensity. Capsaicin may also prevent neurodegeneration.

CBD with Lidocaine Cream

The CBD with Lidocaine Cream contains the same main ingredient as the Capsaicin cream- CBD, which helps promote support and relief. However, the differing active ingredient is lidocaine, a local anesthetic.

Lidocaine acts as a pain remedy through its quick topical analgesic effects. It blocks pain signals along the nerves. It is a synthetic aminoethylamide with local anesthetic and antiarrhythmic properties. Lidocaine is often used in other products, as well, to reduce pain or discomfort caused by skin irritations such as sunburn, insect bites, and minor cuts, scratches, or burns.

 

Are There Any Negative Side Effects Related to CBD Topicals or Creams?

Because CBD is a compound that is being heavily researched, it is important to discuss potential side effects and adverse reactions with your physician if you are considering trying a CBD-infused product.

The best way to ensure you are getting a high-quality product is to choose a manufacturer that publishes its list of ingredients and includes lab information on its products, like Oliver’s Harvest does.
