Every day we see a commercial for a different type of lotion or skin cream. Just about every brand of lotion claims to be the best. The legalization of cannabis has brought a new ingredient into the topical or lotion business. That ingredient is CBD, otherwise known as cannabidiol. CBD is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has been found to have a wide range of effects. CBD has many different methods of ingestion, so there is a wide variety of products. However, there is one CBD product that has become very popular amongst consumers: CBD cream.
What is CBD Cream?
CBD cream is a lotion or topical that is infused with a concentrated form of CBD. The CBD concentrate that is infused into the product is typically extracted using CO2. A CO2 extraction has been found to be one of the cleanest and purest methods of extraction. This also ensures that there are no solvent residuals left in the finalized product. A majority of CBD creams contain a variety of different essential oils to help enhance the medicinal uses of the creams. Overall, CBD cream is just an organic lotion that is infused with CBD oil.
A big question surrounding CBD cream is whether or not it causes an actual “high.” The answer to that is no. CBD cream is classified as a topical, which means that the product is not absorbed into the bloodstream. A major factor that has led to the popularity of CBD cream is that it is a product that most likely would not show up on a drug test. There is a little saying: “My mom uses weed cream!” It is a great marketing pitch, but it really is what the product is for. CBD cream is a great product for those who wish to see the medicinal purposes of cannabis without getting the “high.”
CBD Cream Products
There’s a variety of different CBD creams available to the consumer. For instance, there are lotions, bio-freezes, oils, and even compounds (rubs). Each product has a different purpose, but they are all very similar. It is important to try a few different products and find which one works the best for you. Each person reacts to each product differently. Here is a list of some of the top CBD creams on the market.
The Angel Salve by EvoLab is an award-winning CBD cream. It was named High Times Cannabis Cup’s Best Topical. It is a great product and works similar to a bio-freeze, meaning it gives a slight numbing sensation to the area of application.
