Curious About CBD Topicals?
An Introduction to Topical Products Containing Hemp-derived Cannabidiol (CBD)
While the complete list of CBD oil benefits is still being researched, manufacturers understand the growing interest from shoppers seeking alternative options. Topical body care like balms, creams, salves and ointments containing CBD are not intended to treat or cure any specific condition but may help tired muscles and sore joints.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD (cannabidiol) is one molecule of hundreds derived from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant and made into oil. This oil is then combined with emollients and essential oils for topical application.
Are Marijuana and Hemp Different?
Yes, both belong to the same plant family but have distinctive characteristics. Marijuana contains a psycho-active component called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is associated with a “high,” while CBD is non psycho-active and does not produce a “high.”
How Do CBD Products Work?
Cannabinoids activate receptors in our body associated with our endocannabinoid system (ECS), which regulates recovery and repair, among other functions. Many consumers have found CBD-containing products helpful when used as recommended. No significant side effects have been reported with CBD use, and it is generally well tolerated.*
In topical form, such as balms, creams, salves and ointments, CBD products may be a useful alternative to over-the-counter, steroid-based creams and act as a more natural remedy for those interested in natural care. Topical hemp extract may help manage pain or inflammation associated with injury or strain.
How Should I Choose CBD Topicals?
When choosing topical CBD body care items, it’s important to look for products rooted in efficacy, safety and quality. Brands sold at Sprouts offer products that comply with applicable laws, FDA regulations and are committed to testing, traceability and transparency.
