The skin is the largest organ of the body. Because of its porous qualities, it absorbs and stores nutrients from what we put on our skin. CBD (and other cannabinoids) can permeate the surface of the skin within seconds when applied topically. Thereafter, the active ingredients in CBD Balm interact with nearby endocannabinoid receptors to bring relief to a variety of ailments. Unlike CBD that is consumed orally, the cannabinoids avoid digestive breakdown and remain perfectly intact at the point of absorption. A specific part of the body can be targeted for a more localized approach, focusing the cannabinoids and its benefits precisely where needed.
Research has shown topical CBD is generally safe to use with no unwanted side effects, even when applied liberally. However, it is important to speak with a doctor before using CBD, especially when taking other medications.
To use, put the balm on the fingertips or the palm of the hand, then rub thoroughly into the affected area. Reapply when needed.
