Top 10 CBD Topicals
You like creams, and you like CBD, so you’ll probably really like CBD cream. Sound idea, but with so many products out there, you might be wondering where to start. Understandable, so here’s a list for you.
“Hold up, what is CBD?”
CBD (Cannabidiol) – is an oil extracted from the cannabis plant, is non-psychoactive (doesn’t get you high) and has helped many people with issues including: pain, inflammation, anxiety and others. CBD is currently booming in the UK, but cannabis has been used as medicine for centuries, and now that scientists are seriously researching the benefits of CBD, the early results are raising eyebrows. The oil can easily be infused into different delivery methods including capsules, edibles, sprays, etc. If you have aches and pains or skin conditions, a CBD topical might be the option for you. These are CBD face creams, salves and lotions, basically anything infused with CBD that you can apply directly to the skin.
Research on CBD topicals is limited but we do know that it was successful in fighting arthritis in animal testing (1), and that the American Academy of Dermatology even suggested using topical CBD products as an adjunct measure for acne, eczema, and psoriasis at their annual meeting last year (2) .
“So, how do I know who to trust?”
Here now, based on the following categories:
- Quality of the hemp used
- Price per mg of CBD
- Extraction methods
- Reviews, customer feedback, and customer service
- Independent third-party lab testing
- Manufacturing standards
- Lawfulness (complies with hemp/CBD laws)
