Whether you feel creaky like the Tin Man or have muscle and joint pain, you might want to look into topical CBD. It’s CBD designed to be rubbed or rolled directly on the site of pain or stiffness in your body. Recently it’s also been found to help with skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
Topical CBD For Arthritis Pain
After arthritis sufferers put topical CBD products directly on their joints, they report real pain relief. They describe feeling that the pain isn’t just covered up but is actually gone for hours.
Today, people who can’t or don’t want to use more traditional methods like pain patches and prescription pills are experimenting topical CBD. They like what they find.
- topical CBD works at the site of pain and inflammation
- works only where you apply it and does not enter the bloodstream
- supports the body’s own endocannabinoid system
- is a natural product
- will not get you “high”
Help For Skin Conditions
In addition to reducing arthritis pain, topical CBD has been reported to improve the symptoms and appearance of inflammation-related skin disorders ranging from psoriasis and eczema to atopic dermatitis to acne and scars.
How Does Topical CBD Work?
All CBD products work with the body’s own endocannabinoid system, which regulates many important functions and even other systems in the body. It influences pain, mood, hunger and other conditions we experience. Topical CBD can help:
- boost the body’s levels of pain-relieving endocannabinoids
- reduce the body’s inflammatory responses
- “turn down” the body’s pain receptors
- bring the endocannabinoid system into balance if needed
- increase the natural endocannabinoids available for the body’s use
There are numerous cannabinoid receptors concentrated in the skin. Some researchers believe this is how topical CBD products activate the cannabinoid system, helping to reduce pain, inflammation and the problems it causes.
Choosing The Right Source
CBD products are a hot topic right now and are available from many sources. Some are a little sketchy — or worse — and some are very reliable. Here’s what you should insist on before buying any CBD product:
- Realistic product claims versus claims like curing incurable diseases
- Proof that the products are tested by an independent lab
- Easy access to lab test results
- The ability to check all the ingredients before making a purchase
As one of the company’s founders, I’m proud to assure you that Easy Day meets all of these standards and more.
No two humans are 100% alike. We differ by age, metabolism, bone structure, genetics and much more. A product that works for you might not work for someone else and vice versa.
It’s important to monitor your use of topical CBD. Sometimes the effects build up very gradually, so you just need to stick with it. For some people it’s all about finding the right dose, possibly increasing it slowly by small amounts until you find relief.
Getting Started With Topical CBD
Fill your doctor in on your plans to try topical CBD, just like you would with any other supplement or medication. Then I urge you to keep trying until you feel better. That’s what I did. And I never looked back. Neither will you.
