We often get asked can full-spectrum CBD be applied topically? CBD topicals are very convenient and easy to use way to discover the many benefits of CBD. Since CBD topicals are only applied to the surface layers, they are unlike all other application options. Other forms of CBD products require you to sublingually apply, ingest or inhale the cannabis extracted, and each of these options allows CBD to enter your bloodstream. These methods mean CBD will directly impact the endocannabinoid system. Karma Coast CBD topicals do not enter the bloodstream when applied, this is due to the fact that the first layer of skin (the epidermis) has very low permeability, so the topical CBD products will not reach far enough past this to the blood vessels. This appeals to many newcomers in the UK CBD realm, since direct methods of ingestion or inhalation, can seem a little daunting to new CBD users. We provide some of the best CBD topicals in the UK.

What Are The Benefits of CBD Topicals?

As CBD doesn’t reach the bloodstream through the use of topicals, it is active in many other ways. Like the nervous system, your skin is also covered in cannabinoid receptors which are activated by applying CBD topicals. This allows the CBD to be absorbed by your skin.

The Benefits

  • CBD topical pain relief comes from the Anti-inflammatory action of CBD and it may help to reduce chronic pain and inflammation, in joints and muscles. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed that pain and joint swelling were significantly reduced in rats with arthritis when applied.
  • Topicals may prove helpful for acne, eczema or psoriasis.
  • CBD balm is an excellent moisturizer for dry or cracked skin.

Is CBD Oil Or CBD Balm Better For Pain?

We get asked this a lot and this very much depends on your personal preference and the kind of pain that you’re experiencing daily. If you are suffering from chronic pain, you may prefer using our CBD oil. But for aches and pains that require a targeted approach, especially those that arise after training or a long day at work, many people prefer to use a fast-acting topical CBD balm.
