How to Use CBD Cream

Posted on

Cannabidiol has uses both as a health supplement and as a skincare product. CBD cream offers both benefits. CBD cream is designed for topical use. It takes advantage of dermal absorption, which means the active ingredient, CBD, will be drawn into your skin after application. People with skin pain, joint pain, and dry or itchy skin can benefit from CBD cream. Here are some tips that will help you use this topical cream to best effect:

1. Store CBD cream away from heat and light.

CBD cream is a natural health care product that relies on carrier oils to form a spreadable base. However, natural oils can become rancid if exposed to sunlight and high temperatures. These conditions can also reduce the efficacy of the CBD itself. Many types of CBD cream are made without chemical preservatives, but you can keep your CBD cream from losing its potency by storing it in a cupboard or closet in a cool room. When you store your CBD cream in ideal conditions, it will last until its expiration date.

2. Apply CBD cream gently.

Arthritis, repetitive stress injuries, and muscle strains can all be exacerbated by rough handling. Fortunately, you don't need to manhandle yourself in order to apply CBD cream. A gentle application works just as well as a vigorous one. When applying CBD cream, use gentle pressure. Pain relief comes from the chemical compound itself, not from massage or mechanical manipulation.

3. Rub leftover CBD cream into your hands.

After applying CBD cream, don't rinse the leftovers down the drain. Many people suffer from dry skin on their hands due to frequent hand washing. Even if you don't experience pain in your hands, you can take advantage of the moisturizing properties of CBD cream. Rub any leftovers into your skin. If there is too much for your hands, try spreading a little on your elbows or knees, two other areas that are prone to dryness.

4. Reapply CBD cream whenever you feel the need.

The rate at which CBD is absorbed into your body will depend on many factors, including the potency of the cream and your body's own metabolism. Many people find that topical CBD has an immediate effect on their pain levels. You'll know it's working when you feel the relief. Consequently, you'll also know when it's time to apply more ointment. CBD is a safe, natural supplement that carries no adverse effects, even at high doses. It's safe to reapply CBD cream whenever you feel your pain coming back. Don't wait; pain relief is more effective when administered at the first sign of pain.
