CBD Topicals Rising in Popularity
In one of our July blogs, we discussed ways to identify the right CBD products for you. We hope you were able to find value in this information, as well as a solution that works. Today, we are going to highlight some benefits of CBD topicals.
As you know CBD products have grown exponentially in popularity over the past year or two, and because of this growth the industry has seen an incredible transformation. We are now past the time where CBD only comes in tinctures and must be consumed as a liquid extract. CBD products now come in all kinds of shapes and delivery methods from soft gels, sprays, and salves to toothpaste, dog treats, and bath bombs.
Because of the anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties CBD possesses, it quickly became a popular ingredient for skin care and pain relief products meant to be used in an external application.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of CBD topicals that have led to their rising in popularity.
- Acne – acne occurs when an excess of oil, dirt, and/or dead skin cells clog pores. CBD provides anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects that can help reduce infections and help normalize the gland cells that produce oil.1
- Muscle pain – when you work your muscles vigorously, they start to tear and swell, causing inflammation in your muscles. CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory effects and that’s why CBD is widely used as an ingredient in muscle pain relief products.2
- Anti-aging and wrinkles – the antioxidants properties that CBD contains can help reduce the visible signs of aging skin such as wrinkles and dullness.3
CBD topicals are a good option for consumers looking to ease symptoms in specific areas as quickly as possible. When you take CBD by applying it directly on your skin instead of ingesting it, it goes straight to the problem area and gets absorbed.
Georgetown Market offers a line of popular CBD muscle pain relief topicals that come in forms of salve, gel, mist spray, and roll-on. Our CBD section also highlights hemp seed-infused lip balm that helps alleviate pain associated with dry and chapped lips.
