CBD cream is not like any other cream that you would find on the shelf in a beauty store or pharmacy. It is made when CBD is extracted and mixed to make a cream for the treatment of skin conditions that may be chronic. A lot of big pharmaceutical companies make their own creams and lotions using various kinds of preservatives and additives. However, CBD creams have basic ingredients that could be found in your kitchen. As a matter of fact, you can use those same kitchen ingredients to make your own product. Let’s compare CBD oil and CBD cream.
There are differences between CBD creams and CBD oils. The cream is to be applied topically to the skin while the oil can be administered sublingually under the tongue. If you don’t like to take anything sublingually, then the CBD cream would work better and the same is true for the CBD oil. The cream may have a better smell than the oil, but it cannot be consumed or ingested through the mouth. It would be better to roll a blunt or joint that can be used in your mouth. Of course, if you were to consume the CBD cream, it wouldn’t kill you. However, you might get stomach cramps from ingesting it and the pain could be difficult to bear. So, please refrain from eating CBD cream.
You don’t have to worry about CBD creams getting you high. It doesn’t do so because there is not THC content to worry about. All CBD products whether they are tinctures, oils, strips, edibles or creams are not able to give the user a high. To get high, your product must have in some kind of THC, which is psychoactive. By itself, the CBD cream is not psychoactive because it has no THC content and some CBD products do have THC content, but only a very small portion that is harmless. So, before leaving your house, you can put on your CBD cream and step put in confidence.
You don’t even have to be concerned about side effects because the CBD cream does not have any. If your skin is sensitive because of allergy, then you might want to read the ingredients. For example, if the product has beeswax, olive oil or vitamin E oil and you are allergic to those, then you might consider it a side effect. However, most of the ingredients found in CBD creams are harmless and so, you shouldn’t have any problems. If you were to consume the cream, then you might have real life consequences that would be very uncomfortable. In fact, you might have dry mouth; although it is not considered to be a side effect. Your liver might be harder to process other prescribed medication.
The major concern in this scenario would be the latter, especially for people who are taking medication for a heart condition. The heart medication might not work as it should. So, it is best to consult your physician prior to consuming any product made with CBD. And more importantly, you would only use CBD cream on your skin only.
There are several benefits of using CBD cream. However, it depends on what you are using it to treat. In most cases, it is used to treat all various kinds of pain. And so, it is safe to say that the CBD cream can be used for pain relief; whether chronic or not. For example, you can use it for sore muscles as well as back pain. You should rub it on the area where it hurts the most and the pain will disappear, but not necessarily after one rub.
