cbd salves uses

Regarding CBD creams and CBD lotions, the only real difference between them and salves/balms/ointments is that creams and lotions use a bit of water and moisturizing agents in their bases. Salves and balms only use fatty oils and wax as a base, with no water.

In this article, we explain everything you need to know about CBD salves. We’ll talk about what they’re used for, how they’re made, and what kinds of conditions people use them for. We will also explore how salves differ from other CBD products like oils and creams.

To be clear, there are no specific clinical studies on the use of CBD salves. That said, we do know that transdermal CBD is effective for arthritis joint pain and inflammation (at least in animal models). It also might help with pain and inflammation from skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

CBD Salves: How are they made?

According to results of a CBD-administration study on human skin cells, Dr. Biro points out the possibility of the ECS actually regulating skin inflammation: “[It appears that when] an inflammatory or irritation challenge assaults the skin,” Dr says, “the endocannabinoid system fights against it.”

This accounts for a difference in texture more than anything else. The real functional differences, which we’ll talk about in just a moment, lie more in the specific ingredients used and the amount of CBD present in the salve.

One important thing to remember about CBD salves (or any kind of hemp-based CBD product) is that they won’t get you high – or even slightly buzzed.

So if you’ve been skeptical about using hemp or other CBD-related products because you don’t want to get stoned or became a “pothead”, you’ve got nothing to worry about in that regard.

The short of it: Salves are any mixture of beeswax and oil. Salves are for topical use only and are rubbed into the skin to help with discomfort.

As a farmer at Sunset Lake, I understand what it means to have sore, aching muscles. After a long day in the field, my muscles often seek relief. But the work must go on— and that’s why I use our CBD salve for managing pain.

What is CBD salve?

Full ingredient description HERE

Rub a small amount of the CBD Salve into the skin wherever you are experiencing discomfort. You want a thin layer of the salve to sit on your skin. It is best to apply a thin layer over the area multiple times instead of a big blob right at the beginning to give your body time to absorb it fully. We suggest waiting 30 minutes between applications however more frequent use is fine.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid (chemical component) in hemp plants. CBD is being studied for its anti-inflammatory* properties and ability help soothe irritated skin. When a salve is applied topically CBD penetrates the skin and reportedly blocks pain receptors in the body. When combined with other comforting herbs, CBD can act as a powerful soother to those aches and pains.
