What is a CBD-Infused Topical?
The first step in the process is to exctract the CBD from the Hemp plant through the CO2 method, and then the CBD is added to the desired ingredients, usually olive oil or coconut oil, along with some additives like essential oils to further amplify the relief, to form a CBD-infused topical cream.
How Do CBD Topicals Work With Your Body?
Skin is very porous, making for a great way for CBD to be absorbed. Within your tissue, you have two different type of receptors, CB1 and CB2. These are connected to what is known as the Endocannabinoid system, which is mostly known for homeostasis and regulating pain, mood, hunger, and memory. Those receptors are then triggered by CBD you have just applied, to elevate your pain-relieving endocannabinoids to block the absorption anandamide, which is the compound that regulates pain.
