Topical CBD may not be your first choice when looking for a way to incorporate cannabidiol into your life, but don’t be so quick to dismiss this particular part of the industry. Topicals are available in a wide array of scents, strengths, and have a variety of uses you may not be aware of. In today’s article, we’ll be touching on the variety of ways that CBD topicals can be used in your everyday life. If you’re still not sold on the reason to use CBD topicals, we’ll be touching on that in our very next article. As for now, let’s do a quick recap of what CBD is and then jump right into the ways that CBD can be used.
What Is CBD?
Short for cannabidiol, CBD has gained enormous popularity for its homeopathic properties from users of all ages. CBD is one of over 100 compounds found in the hemp plant and can be found in three different options: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate.
Full spectrum contains the various parts of the hemp plant (usually the stem and stalk): all the naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. Full-spectrum products are reported to deliver a unique benefit known as the “Entourage Effect”, a theory where the user reaps the “full” benefits of the hemp plant. Broad-spectrum is very similar, but nearly all THC has been removed, though there may be some trace amount of THC left behind. CBD Isolate contains only CBD, meaning all other cannabinoids, terpenes, and THC has been completely stripped away.
Based on your specific needs, you may have a preference for a specific category of CBD products. Though both broad-spectrum and full-spectrum contain trace amounts of THC (0.3% THC or less), no CBD product will ever get you high. To learn more about how CBD differs from other psychoactive cannabinoids that DO get you high, check out our article entitled “___.” As for right now, it’s time to check out the five ways that CBD topicals can be incorporated into your daily activities.
5 Ways To Use CBD Topicals
You may see CBD topicals as you browse various sites and brick-and-mortar stores but aren’t quite sure how you might use them. That very conundrum is what gave birth to this article topic! We’ve put together a list of possible ways you can use CBD topicals in various parts of your day and night. While there are many more ways to use CBD, here’s a few that might get your thinking cap engaged!
Combat Dryness From Aging
In our previous article entitled “Can CBD Help With Aging?”, we elaborated on several ways that CBD can help slow or minimize the physical toll that aging takes on our bodies. While CBD topicals are only designed to penetrate the dermal layer, moisturizing your skin can help restore its softness, tickle your senses with its soothing aroma, and help you feel and look your best. Consider using it throughout the day to ensure your hands are as soft and supple. Aging takes a toll on your skin as it loses its moisture and elasticity, so keep your skin as fabulous on the outside as you are on the inside! Check out our entire line of Arthridiol CBD products crafted for those still young at heart!
After a long exhausting day at the office, there’s usually something you look forward to upon coming home. Perhaps it’s a home-cooked meal or a steamy shower. Maybe it’s relaxing on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and re-runs of your favorite 90s sitcom (Friends and Seinfield anyone?). But what about right before you go to bed? CBD topicals can be a wonderful way to reward yourself for all the stress and work you completed during the day. Picture this: warm water that instantly kisses your face, a nice facial scrub to clean away the day, and a relaxing lotion to soothe away your stress. Pampering yourself right before bed is a luxury no one should be without!
Workout Aftercare/Achy Muscles and Joints
Whether you live in the gym or frequent it once or twice a week, your muscles deserve some TLC after all that heavy lifting. Using a CBD topical can help soothe your tired muscles and give your skin a soothing glow. While CBD topicals won’t prevent muscle soreness or eradicate that swole feeling entirely, CBD topicals often come with menthols and scents that may offer some soothing relief when you need it most. Our CBD Topical Balm is ideal for use after you’ve showered to ensure the moisture can seep into your pores. Formulated with luxurious coconut oil, arnica gel, hemp seed oil, and Vitamin E, this balm is crafted with you in mind. Even if you’re not quite ready to set foot in a gym, this topical balm can help soothe your aching muscles and joints for the relief that you need and deserve!
Remember that phrase, “Bright eyed and bushy-tailed?” Not many people wake up raring to go, but perhaps that’s because they don’t know the wonders of a morning skincare routine. Many skincare professionals recommend washing your face in the morning to help rid your pores of accumulated bacteria. If you use lotions, creams, or serums the night before, you may want to cleanse your face and use fresh topicals before starting your day. Our Face Serum can help keep your skin toned and hydrated in about five minutes! The serum is crafted with a proprietary blend of DMAE, CoQ10, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin C and features a delicate rose petal scent.
At-Home Spa Day
Sometimes you need a day off just to pamper yourself and refresh after an extended time where stress and adulting are not an issue. Call several of your friends and make an at-home spa day! Prepare some warm slightly moistened cloths, a few scented candles, some relaxing tunes, and you’ll have a day of luxury in the comfort of your own home. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, consider using our CBD Massage Oil. Infused with 1500mg of premium hemp-derived CBD, this silky oil is just the thing your tensed muscles need to fully relax. Our massage oil is non-greasy and light enough to caress your skin; when your sensual massage is complete, simply wash off with warm water.
