A topical, in terms of CBD, refers to products that are applied directly to the body and absorbed into the skin. The purpose of the topical depends on the product and its unique components. There is a wide variety of topicals including: oil, ointments, balms, salves, lotions, and creams. The endocannabinoid system, a term commonly found in our other blogs, is responsible for the functioning neurotransmitter receptors that are the basis of the human body’s skin nerve structure and the dermal layers including hair follicles and sweat glands. ECS focused research has allowed for the discovery of the positive impact CBD topicals can have on the human body.
CBD has the possibility to provide therapeutic treatment for peripheral neuropathy, which is the disruption of the nerves that can cause pain, weakness, and numbness. After application, it is common for topicals to take an hour to two days to provide adequate relief to the body. This depends on the condition, dosage, and frequency of use. CBD topicals show promise of helping the body both internally and externally. A 2020 study emphasized the possibility of CBD topicals treating skin conditions such as acne, eczema and other related skin conditions.
When purchasing CBD topicals, it is also important to understand the benefits and purposes of other ingredients they may contain. JuJu Royal offers a wide variety of topicals. Our JuJu Royal Comfort Salve is made with 300mg of hemp extract and other key ingredients such as cinnamon bark and clove, lemon, peppermint and lavender oils. These additional ingredients elevate the results of the Comfort Salve. Cinnamon bark and lemon oil contain anti-fungal, antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Peppermint and lavender oil cleanses skin with antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Their cooling effect helps to soothe irritation and inflammation and clove oil assists the skin with blood circulation. All of these key ingredients combined create an ideal salve intended for maximum results.
Our other topicals, the JuJu Royal Lip Balm and Nano Repair Cream both contain Vitamin E, which contains antioxidants and nourishes and protects skin. CBD topicals are useful based on their inclusion of CBD and other ingredients. When shopping for CBD topicals make sure to evaluate the other ingredients in the product in order to decide which product will be the best option for your intended use.
