Creams & Topicals
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. When introduced to humans, CBD and other cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which facilitates sleep, appetite, pain, and mood. As a result, products with CBD create feelings of relaxation in those who use or consume them; CBD products can also alleviate painful symptoms associated with injuries or medical conditions, and improve sleep quality.
CBD comes in many different forms. Topical lotions and salves with CBD oil are popular among those with bone and joint pain, as well as nagging discomforts from previous injuries. Topicals are applied directly to the skin, and typically provide immediate pain relief to the affected areas. Many topicals are also infused with nutrients and natural ingredients that offer good moisturization for dry and/or damaged skin.
