If you have been surfing the Internet these days in search of skincare products that live up to the hype that surrounds them, then it’s likely you have gone down a couple different rabbit holes—and it’s also safe to say you have encountered information regarding topical CBD. Now, if you are new to the world of CBD, your knowledge of CBD products might be limited. Many people think that the most common way to use CBD is as an oil, gel capsule, or tincture. Surely, that is true. However, CBD also comes in the form of a topical—such as a roll on or a lotion— which can be directly applied to one’s skin and body.
In this blog, Asé Pure Naturals will explain why including topical CBD in your skincare regimen is a good choice.
How CBD Affects Your Skin
According to Dr. Nima Gharavi, a dermatologist and skin cancer surgeon practicing at Cedars-Sinai, CBD could potentially play a role in addressing dry skin as well as certain inflammatory skin diseases due to its potential to hydrate the skin as well as its anti-inflammatory effects. However, Dr. Gharavi states, “More studies are needed to see if CBD or other chemical agents found in the cannabis plant directly improve skin quality and have other health benefits.”
Topical CBD products can also be used in addressing musculoskeletal complaints, such as when dealing with symptoms of arthritis or even recovering from strenuous activity or athletic training/competition.
Recently, the founder of Asé Pure Naturals, Heather Jacoby, used the CBD Muscle Gel Roll On produced by her company as she trained for and recovered from running a 50K Ultra Marathon.
Ms. Jacoby stated, “I ran over 575 miles during a 75-day training period. That type of intensity leads to overuse of muscles. The gel roll on was a game changer for me as it offered significant relief from joint and muscle pain. Plus, I like the fact that it spared me from using pharmaceutical pain killers. Keeping it all natural is so much better for your body.”
The Skin’s Cannabinoid Receptors
We often reference the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) and how it interacts with CBD products. As it relates specifically to the skin, it’s important to know that cannabinoid receptors related to the ECS exist in high concentrations in the layers of dermis. Therefore, when a topical CBD product is applied to the body’s largest organ, the CBD contained is offered a clear pathway directly to key receptors, which could enable pain mitigation as well as deploy CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects to a user.
Is It Time to Try Topical CBD Products?
There is still plenty of research that must be done as it relates to topical CBD products, and it is also important to mention that every person experiences CBD differently. What one person might view as a “silver bullet” related to topical CBD in managing skin inflammation might be widely different from someone else’s experience.
However, if you are ready to make the jump and begin using topical CBD as part of your skincare regimen, then we encourage you to do your due diligence and ensure you are using a product that is natural, organic, and third-party tested.
At Asé Pure Naturals, our Muscle Gel Roll On features all of those qualities, as do our other CBD products.
