CBD and your skin are a match made in heaven! CBD can be ingested in so many ways, and a great way is through topicals. These are CBD products you apply directly to the skin and can include lotion, muscle gels, body oils, and of course salves. The Endocannabinoid System doesn't only have receptors inside our body, but Endocannabinoid receptors are also located in our skin! This means topical application of Full Spectrum CBD can directly interact with the receptors in our skin.
Unlike regular topicals, CBD-infused topicals react with cannabinoid receptors in your body and in some cases can remove pain for longer periods of time. This is a great use of CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties which is what makes it effective for many people’s pain. Using topicals has the additional benefit of allowing a person to target a specific area that needs relief – think achy joints, sore muscles, menstrual cramps, even the neck and temples for relief from headaches!
Topicals generally start working 15-30 minutes after being applied, and the effects last anywhere from 2-4 hours. We have also found that these topicals have compounding effects when used on a regular basis over time. In addition to relieving pain, CBD products can be especially useful after a long day of soaking up the sun. Let us introduce you to Southern Sun Body Mist, which is full of so much goodness! One can use it year around for slightly toasty skin in the summer as well as chapped, dry skin in the winter. Southern Sun contains so many good things for the bod, including Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel, Jojoba...and of course, our full-spectrum hemp CBD goodness. So you will get relief from inflammation as well as a natural, non-oily moisturizer for your skin!
