What Is CBD Cream?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a natural remedy made from the cannabis plant that does not produce psychoactive effects. It can be applied topically through creams, salves, lotions and patches that have been infused with CBD and provides relief for skin on the surface and within the underlying muscle tissue.
CBD cream provides benefits through the dermal and subdermal layers of skin by binding to cell receptors in the skin and providing relief from inflammation or chronic pain.
Using CBD-infused creams is relatively simple. The user applies the cream in the area of the skin where they are feeling discomfort in the same way they would if they were using a moisturizing lotion. Administering the proper dose of CBD, however, is problematic since many manufacturers do not state how many milligrams of CBD are actually present in the cream. Experts say users should apply a small amount at the start and increase it until they feel relief.
