Lotions & Balms
CBD lotions and balms have gained significant popularity over the last few years, likely due to the combination of their ease of use, non-psychoactive properties, increased interest in the role of the endocannabinoid system in skin health and legal changes within the industry.
CBD lotions and balms are skin products that have been infused with a concentrated form of CBD extracted from industrial grown hemp plants.
In addition to CBD, these lotions and balms also contain a number of different components, such as essential oils, that have various health promoting properties and may increase CBD bioavailability and general product efficacy.
CBD lotions and balms are applied to, and subsequently absorbed via the skin. This method of absorption ensures that the product interacts with the endocannabinoid system of the skin, targeting the affected area. Because CBD cannot reach the bloodstream via the skin, these are not suitable products for full-body relief but are ideal for more concentrated, problematic areas.
