CBD topicals are used on the skin, where they provide localised relief. Unlike CBD oil or CBD gummies that you ingest orally, CBD topicals are applied on the skin, where they interact with the endocannabinoid receptors on the skin.
Topicals such as gels and roll-ons offer fast relief to targeted areas because they don’t go through the bloodstream to get absorbed into the body.
Your body is full of cannabinoid receptors that send signals to the endocannabinoid system responsible for feelings of pain, mood, sleep, and immunity. Topical CBD products work by interacting with the cannabinoid receptors on the skin, which effectively communicates with the endocannabinoid system, causing pain relief.
How does topical CBD get into the skin?
Your skin has different layers, but the epidermis and the dermis are the closest to the surface. The epidermis contains a lot of pores, which are known for absorbing anything they come into contact with. CBD is absorbed through these pores.
What are the benefits of topical CBD?
Our topical CBD products have the following benefits:
Topical CBD has higher bioavailability and will give you faster relief for pain because more of it gets absorbed through the skin. Oral CBD products take longer before you can feel the effects; some of them get lost in the digestive tract before they can get absorbed into the bloodstream.
Non-invasive and convenient
CBD roll-ons and gels are non-invasive and easy to use from anywhere. They also come in sleek packaging for ease of portability.
Great for your skin
While CBD topicals are mainly used to treat muscle and joint pains, they are also great for your skin. CBD has anti-oxidant properties that prevent skin damage and enhance collagen breakdown.
Perfect for aches and pains
Topical CBD application can help relieve everyday aches and pains. A study on rats revealed that CBD could help with joint swelling and pain.
Topical CBD products are popular among athletes and people who work out a lot because they reduce muscle aches.
What CBD topical products should I use?
It all comes down to a matter of preference when choosing the best topical CBD products for your needs. One of our favourite CBD topicals is our cooling gel, infused with peppermint and eucalyptus oil for that extra cooling effect. The gel comes in a 50ml bottle, each containing 500mg of CBD.
We also have a CBD roll on that comes in a sleek 10ml bottle, each containing 100mg of CBD.
Do CBD topicals contain THC?
Prym Health CBD topicals are THC-free, like all our other CBD products. We source all our raw materials from vetted farms that use industrial hemp plants for CBD extraction.
Our entire range of CBD products meet all UK legal requirements, so you can use them anywhere in the UK without getting into trouble!
Are CBD topicals safe?
Topical CBD products are generally safe and well-tolerated by most people. However, we combine other essential oils that may react with your skin. For example, we infuse CBD with peppermint and eucalyptus in our cooling gels. So we recommend doing a patch test before applying on a wide area to see how your skin reacts to all the ingredients.
