Ways to Use CBD Balm

Published by Canavape® in Canavape® Blog.

If you experience joint or muscle pain, or suffer from irritating skin conditions, CBD balm could be the solution. CBD balm is known for easing the symptoms associated with neck and back pain, acne, psoriasis, eczema, joint pain and muscle pain.

Applying a CBD balm topically will provide quick relief for a wide range of symptoms. Because the human body has its own endocannabinoid system, it is the perfect receptor for cannabinoids. In the case of CBD balm, it’s the cannabinoid CBD which works with the endocannabinoid system to help relieve aches and pains.

These cannabinoid receptors are located all over the body, which is why applying the balm nearest to the where it is needed is so effective.

CBD balm for pain

We put a lot of stress and tension on our bodies, whether we’re on our feet all day, or we sit at a desk, different areas of the body are strained in different ways during our working day. In fact, it’s perfectly natural to experience soreness or aching due for a variety of reasons.

Similarly, punctuating our working week with workouts can also be a cause of aches and pains. CBD is used in sport by many athletes to help alleviate the aches they pick up on the field or in the ring.

Applying topical CBD balm to the temples, neck, elbows, knees, wrists, back, or shoulders can be a real help with day to day aches and pains. It can also be massaged into your feet and knees as a full relaxation, pain easing measure after a day’s work.

CBD balm for skin conditions

The skin is the largest organ of the body, and houses and protects our muscles, bones and vital organs. It absorbs and stores nutrients and vitamins, along with pollutants and harmful chemicals.

Chemicals and pollutants in everyday products and the air we inhale has become so normal that common skin conditions like itching, inflammation, and burning are part of most people’s everyday ailments.

CBD can soothe common skin conditions by acting as an anti-inflammatory and moisturising the skin without contributing to the irritation. It can also help with acne, blackheads, dry skin, bites and itchy skin, sores and bumps.

Like any new cream or cosmetic, it’s important that you try a small amount on a visible area of skin to test for an allergy. We’d suggest leaving it for 24 hours before beginning to use significant amounts to see if a reaction develops.

How should I use CBD balm?

Applying CBD topically is pretty straight forward, but just in case you’re wondering, here are the steps to follow if you want to get the most out of your CBD balm.

Step 1

Determine where the pain is coming from. This almost goes without saying, but most people put a mental block on when it comes to pain, and for good reason. Which means the accuracy with which they are able to pinpoint the location of an ache is vague at best.

Step 2

Clean the area you are going to apply the balm to. Have a hot, steaming shower, or apply a hot washcloth to the area. Hot water or air helps to open the pores which means your skin will be more receptive to the balm.

Step 3

Apply as much CBD balm as is needed and rub or massage into the area as vigorously or as gently as needed.

Step 4

Wash your hands well after applying the CBD cream.
