CBD Topicals: What’s in it for you

CBD is everywhere, and these days it’s in everything – from dog treats, to softgels, to topical creams and lotions. With so many options available, choosing the right product for you can feel overwhelming. Good news: shopCBD is here to help. Let’s take a look at the various topical CBD products on shopCBD.com to find out what’s right for you:

 

First things first: what’s a CBD topical?

 A topical is a product you apply to your skin, rather than something you ingest. It could be a cream, lotion, roll-on, salve, balm, or even a bath bomb. “Topical” just means something applied directly to a part of the body, as opposed to something you eat, swallow or drink. And a CBD topical is the exact same thing, but containing CBD – usually in the form of a hemp oil or hemp extract.

Topicals are generally designed to soothe, moisturize and hydrate skin. Which one you choose will depend on what you need it for. So let’s take a look at the most popular kinds of CBD topicals:

 

Balms & gels

When you hear “balsamic,” you probably think of salad dressing.

But it’s also where the word “balm” comes from.

Balsam is an aromatic, usually oily and resinous substance coming from various plants. And it’s from this naturally occurring substance that the first balms were made.

These days, a balm is more generally defined as an aromatic preparation, used to soothe and calm irritated skin.

CBD balms have all the same soothing components as their non-cannabinoid-infused counterparts, but with CBD as an added ingredient. For example, PlusCBD Extra Strength Balm 100mg contains sweet almond oil, beeswax, willow bark extract, and tons of other natural soothing agents. But it also contains 100mg of their Gold Formula CBD extract.

Our CBD balms and gels come in lip balms, cooling gels, and lots more. No matter what you need, we’ve got you covered.

 

Lotions & body oils

When your skin is dry, irritated or scaly, there’s nothing better than a good lotion, cream or body oil. Well, maybe one thing—a CBD lotion.

Our CBD lotions, body oils, and creams combine the soothing action of your favorite all-natural creams with a healthy serving of CBD.

But which one should you choose? It depends what you need.

For dry skin, try a full-spectrum CBD lotion with soothing agents like Cocoa Butter and Coconut Oil.

For a relaxing night with your special someone, consider a lavender massage oil.

No matter what you need it for, shopCBD has a lotion or oil for you.

 

Serums

Is everybody ready? We’re about to drop the skincare routine.

If you’ve ever used a facial serum, you already know how their light, highly-concentrated formulation can help deliver moisture where it’s most needed. But that same skin-penetrating ability can also help deliver a much-needed serving of CBD.

Serums are quickly becoming a regular part of many people’s daily skincare routines. So if you’re looking for a way to incorporate CBD into your daily (or nightly) routine, and for more radiant, beautiful skin, look no further than a CBD facial serum.

 

Bath bombs and soaps

Sometimes, you just need to relax. And what better way than with a hot bath?

A regular old bubble bath can be soothing and calming, especially if you set the mood with candles and essential oils. But if you’re ready to take your relaxing bath time to the next level, try incorporating a CBD bath bomb or soap.

Bath bombs are a key component of modern aromatherapy. Loaded with essential oils, they deliver an enveloping cloud of sweet, relaxing smells when used in the bath. To promote maximum calm, our CBD-infused bath bombs release not only therapeutic essential oils, but a hefty serving of CBD oil as well. Try our lavender bath bomb - the most popular, by far.

Just like bath bombs, a good soap enhances your relaxing bath. To relieve stress while treating your skin to the pampering it deserves, look for a CBD-enhanced soap with soothing ingredients like goat milk, herbal teas, essential oils and colloidal silver.

 

Staying on topic-al

As you can see, there are a ton of options out there when it comes to CBD topicals. Nobody knows better than you do what you want or need for your skin, hair or muscles. So take your time, do your research, and find the CBD topical balm, lotion or oil that makes the most sense for you.
