As CBD becomes more and more of a consensus in the Medical community due to extensive research and promising lab results, products such as Oils, Salves, Creams, Ointments, Lotions and Serums are now widespread and available to the general public without any prescription.
In January of 2017, the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine released a comprehensive Health Report that evaluated almost two decades of Cannabis research. The results were conclusive: “One of the therapeutic uses of cannabis and cannabinoids is to treat chronic pain in adults. The committee found evidence to support that patients who were treated with cannabis or cannabinoids were more likely to experience a significant reduction in pain symptoms.”
CBD creams and lotions are used for aches and pains caused mainly by Muscle and Joint inflammation. As it turns out, CBD possesses an anti-inflammatory properties. Its main objective is to provide a relief for symptoms associated with Musculo-Skeletal pain, Chronic pain, Insomnia, Fatigue and Cognitive Issues – all common in conditions such as Arthritis and Fibromyalgia.
Recently, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) concluded that skin conditions such as Eczema, Acne and even Psoriasis can be treated with the help of CBD, once applied directly onto a specific area of the skin that’s been infected.
CBD creams have also been used for insect bites, stings and burns. These solutions deliver CBD directly to the outer layer of the skin instead of into the bloodstream, hence providing a localized relief.
In case you are looking to counter symptoms such as Inflammation and localized pain, look for Lotions, Creams and Salves to get the job done. Ointments, Serums and Oils are more commonly used for treating skin-related conditions.
It was only a matter of time before the rapidly legalized Cannabis Market found its way into the Beauty industry where both unique and safe are in constant demand. Nowadays, there are numerous Cosmetic applications containing cannabis-derived ingredients. The most common are Skin Products (hand and facial creams, toners, facial masks, lip balms and Anti-Aging Serums) but why stop there? Perfumes, Tattoo Ointments, Hair & Nails products all offer fresh new solutions that were never applied before and with great results after only preliminary testings.
CBD trials on these specific topics show that the Cannabis compound additive helps manage some of the most common chronic auto-immune skin diseases such as Psoriasis and many cases of inflammation of the skin by achieving cleaner pores, hydrated skin and overall clearer complexion.
