FAB is community-oriented and regularly collaborates with charity partners. We really like the addition of blood orange essential oil in this topical, which makes it smell great.
I prefer a blend of shea butter, cocoa butter, and olive oil. Shea butter helps absorption, has anti-inflammatory properties, and helps to alleviate pain and itch. Cocoa butter is a very stable fat that can prevent rancidity and adds a velvety texture to the final product. Experiment with different fats and ratios to find the consistency that meets your needs. Dixie Synergy Relief Balm contains 50 mg of both CBD and THC per container to treat localized pain and inflammation.
When activated by exposure to CBD, the receptors of the endocannaboid system become reactive, so they’re able to affect key body processes including mood, memory, appetite, and pain. Some people (my Dad included) also find CBD creams are best applied just before bed so they can work overnight. Nonetheless, there are some ways you can ensure you get the best results using CBD topicals.
CBD cream does not contain THC, at least not in any percentage that would make your world go psychedelic hemp oil for skin. Sure, it won’t kill you, but it might cause substantial stomach pain. CBD oil is only meant to be administered under the tongue (sublingually).
If there is no reaction, the product is likely safe for your skin. If you have questions about patch-tests or any resulting irritation, consult your physician before using CBD. The phytocannabinoids in CBD oil mimic the functions of the endocannabinoids produced in your body. Endocannabinoids are the chemical messengers of your endocannabinoid system.
