Benefits of CBD Oil
What Can It Do?
Benefits of CBD oil in salves, lotions and oils are easily absorbed through the skin for pain relief, inflammation, muscle soreness, eczema, psoriasis, rashes, arthritis and nephropathy plus other conditions.
The best way to get these pain relief benefits is from topical or transdermal products. A 100% all-natural product is the best way to relieve pain. These all-natural products are not putting unnecessary additional chemicals on your body. Although, any lotion or cream containing water does need a preservative to reduce the risk of growing mold in the product.
Types of Topical Products
Localized Pain Relief - Skin Care
Salves are the most common way to apply the benefits of CBD oil for localized pain relief. They come in 1 oz, 2 oz., 4 oz. tins and are made with other natural moisturizing ingredients like calendula herb, hemp seed oil, elderberry infusions and avocado oil to give an example.
Balms are another way to apply the benefits of CBD oil and are usually applied after a shower or at bedtime to get night time relief. They come in the same sizes above or 8 oz plastic jars. These can be made with lavender, geranium and clary sage to help ease you into a good night’s sleep while getting pain relief.
Oils with CBD are easy to carry in your purse, car, tote bag or gym bag. They come in 10 milliliter roll-on bottles or essential oil bottles. As long as the bottles are tightly closed they shouldn't leak. These are great for the on-the-go errands.
Lotions containing the CBD oil can come in two different varieties. One is the liquid lotion and similar to a cream, but usually in a pump bottle or flip top. These come in 1 oz, 4 oz or 8 oz plastic bottles.
Another variation of lotion is the solid lotion tube which is really handy for on-the-go activities. This can be the twist tube 4 oz or .50 oz small tube. You don’t have to worry about leakage or any mess because it’s a solid lotion.
Body butters are another delivery method for CBD oil. This is an all over the body moisturizer with pain relief benefits. Lavender body butter with avocado oil and CBD oil is an all in one product – deep moisturizing from the avocado oil, pain relief that’s longer lasting from the CBD oil plus the lavender scent is naturally calming.
Topical Benefits of CBD Oil
These are the most beneficial ways to receive cannabis medicine.
- Absorbed into one inch of epidermis skin layer
- Doesn’t get into blood stream
- Great for variety of skin conditions
If there are extreme medical conditions like cancer a pure cannabis oil (CBD oil) concentrate like CO2 extracts are recommended. This is referred to as CBD Isolate (without terpenes) or CBD Shatter (with terpenes).
Terpenoids (terpenes) are non-cannabinoids found throughout a broad range of plant species. These are the oils secreted by the floral leaves and flowers of the female plants. Their flavor and aroma identify their particular strain and health benefits. Lavender is an example of a terpene - linalool. Its known to be anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsant, analgesic and anti-anxiety.
These are medicated adhesive skin patches that slowly release small amounts of cannabis medicine into the bloodstream over a longer period of time. Transdermal patches are different from topicals since they can penetrate all 7 layers of the epidermis skin and go right into the bloodstream.
Systemic Pain Relief Benefits
- Longer period of medication
- Six to ten hours
- Patches can be cut into small doses
- THC patches do have psychoactive effects
These are some of the promising ways to introduce CBD oil to someone safely through salves, balms, oils, lotions and body butters. The transdermal patches are another effective way to receive pain relief and the patient can control the dosage amount if they choose too.
There is so much study, testing and research being done on the benefits of CBD oil that it’s exciting to know this herb has so many medical possibilities.
