CBD is an increasingly popular product across the world and it’s something can also be infused into CBD balm to deliver the same natural goodness to the body’s largest organ – the skin. Reported by users to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, CBD is able to soothe skin, especially when it’s blended together with essential oils.
NaturallyCBD’s range of CBD balms come loaded with cannabinoids to stimulate the skin’s own receptors making it smoother, softer and healthier. That’s not all they offer either, as they’re also infused with essential oils that are also known to improve the condition of the skin its used on.
A balm is a softening and soothing emollient that users report to promote healing and provide a soothing effect when applied topically. CBD balms are simply those infused with cannabidiol and other essential oils like eucalyptus, lavender, rosehip, argan and geranium.
Regular application of a thin layer in a massaging action is ideal for helping to alleviate symptoms of some skin conditions (although we would always recommend talking to your GP if you’re unsure) and provide relief for sore or aching joints.
As more and more people around the world are becoming aware of, CBD can be used for a variety of different reasons to help provide gentle support to the body’s systems. Balms are simply another of the increasing variety of products that deliver the power of CBD into and onto the body.
Balms can be effective in supporting skin health, but to fully understand how and why they work, you must first understand how balms deliver the powerful cannabidiol they contain. Along with the natural essential oils that you’ll find in all our balms from Naturally CBD, they are absorbed topically – through the upper layers of your epidermis.
CBD oils are typically absorbed inside the mouth and go directly into the user’s bloodstream, whereas topically applied CBD doesn’t go anywhere near it, remaining in the skin and stimulating its CBD receptors – that are part of the body’s own endocannabinoid system.
How CBD Balms Help to Soothe Your Skin
Many of our customers swear by their CBD infused balms for helping them to maintain healthy skin and there even those who report that it’s able to help clear up frustrating issues like acne. Reported also to unclog pores and remove dirt and excess oil, CBD balm can help to prevent bacteria growth on the skin that can lead to those pesky breakouts.
There is a growing body of anecdotal evidence that CBD possesses anti-microbial properties and is able to better regulate sebum regulation – one of the key drivers of acne and spots. If you want healthy, supple skin, it seems that you could do a lot worse than try a CBD balm for yourself.
Essential Oils For Soreness Reduction
Rather than being simply infused to make CBD balm smell nicer, essential oils are included because they too offer relief to sore and tired muscles and joints. Lavender oil is known to calm and relax the body, whilst others like eucalyptus offer a cooling effect that soothes pain and soreness.
Then there are other oils like Rosemary and Chamomile that help to make your skin feel great every time they’re applied. Try one of our balms for yourself and we’re sure you’ll feel why essential oil and cbd infused balms are becoming so widely used.
How to Apply CBD Balms
Applying a balm to your skin couldn’t be easier, as it simply a matter of identifying the most appropriate area to use it and rubbing it in, in a slow, circular motion. Whether simply trying to alleviate the symptoms of a particular skin condition or reduce soreness after a hard workout at the gym, users report a warming and soothing effect that can also reduce inflammation.
CBD is used by many people for its reported anti-inflammatory qualities, which is why a CBD muscle balm can be so useful in reducing soreness even to muscles, as it’s something that penetrates deep beneath the skin. It will come as no surprise then that many use these balms for relaxing, tension-busting shoulder and back massages that make the day’s stresses and strains melt away
Are Hemp Oil and CBD Oil the same?
No, they’re not. While they are both derived from the hemp plant, the main difference between the two is that hemp oil contains virtually no CBD , which means it offers nothing like the same health support. Another difference is that hemp oil is made from hemp seeds (making it great for cooking), whereas CBD oil is created from extracting CBD from the stalks, flowers and leaves of the hemp plant.
How long does CBD take to work?
How long it takes CBD to work will depend on your choice of CBD product and how you take it. If you take CBD oil, then typically speaking, you will normally take sublingually, it can take around 20 -30 mins for the desired effect to be felt. However, everyone’s physiology is different, so it could be more or less depending on your makeup.
Other ways such as CBD capsules can take between 1 to 2 hours before an effect is felt, and is considered a more slow release way of dosing.
What Medical Conditions can i cure with CBD?
CBD oil in the UK is sold as a food dietary supplement, sellers are not allowed to make any medical claims.
We do encourage you to read and research CBD yourself, as there are trustworthy websites that can be found on Google, where you’ll find studies on the effects of cannabidiol in various conditions. We may refer to such studies here, but only to inform you about them, so you can make your own decisions.
