What is CBD Cream and How to use It for Pain? (CBD Beginners Guide)
CBD is still a relatively new concept to a lot of people. When they discuss CBD products, they are often talking about ingestible options such as gummies or tinctures. However, CBD Creams and Topicals are becoming more popular, especially for pain.
What is CBD cream, and how can it help you, specifically with pain?
CBD creams, salves, and other topicals are lotions or creams applied directly to the skin, not ingested. These formulas tend to treat a wide variety of skin conditions and physical ailments. These topicals don’t concentrate solely on CBD, but are used in skincare routines and pain formulas to support healthy muscle and joints. Our Hemp Sports Cream is a pain formula with a cooling effect to help relieve sore or achy muscles. CBD is an added benefit to help the heal thing process to allow your body to recover for your next workout, hike, or run.
What is CBD?
We’ve touched on CBD topicals and how they can help you with pain and recovery, but what is CBD? CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is one of the most prevalent substances of the hemp plant and 1 of over 100 compounds referred to as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are molecules that interact with cell receptors in our bodies. These receptors make up the ECS (Endocannabinoid System). The ECS helps the body achieve homeostasis and create overall wellness. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant and processed using CO2 extraction. We then extract all THC from our products to create a broad spectrum CBD that is third party tested to ensure quality.
Now that we know what CBD is, how can it be used as a cream?
When most people think of CBD, they think of a tincture or gummy. These are taken orally with a dropper or as a gummy candy. CBD oils tend to be a mixture of CBD extracts and a carrier oil such as coconut or olive oil. Pain Creams or topicals are applied directly to the skin targeting a localized pain spot. These creams or lotions provide options for your skin care routine or work effectively as pain relievers for sore muscle by rubbing the cream directly onto your skin.
Adding CBD Creams or Topicals to your Daily Routine
Now that you know what CBD cream is and how it can help you, how can you add it to your daily routine? CBD creams can be added to your routine for more than one reason. Some people like CBD Creams or Salves to help with their daily skincare regimen. CBD helps as a moisturizer and has been shown to help with skin conditions such as ache.
Glacier Organics pain cream, or Hemp Sports Cream, is used for another purpose. As the name states, it is a pain cream used to help runners, athletes, or anyone that wants to stay active on a daily basis. Our Hemp Sports Cream has a cooling agent with CBD added to the formula. This is meant to help relieve muscle soreness or any aches and pains you have as an athlete or someone getting older and noticing daily aches and pains . The CBD added to the formula is an added benefit for overall wellness. You can apply before, during, or after a workout to get the best results. Adding this to your daily routine can help you feel your best even after the hardest of workouts!
Shopping For CBD Cream: How do I find the right product?
For beginners, the CBD world can be intimidating. There are so many brands, products, and ways to take CBD, it can be hard to get started. Most people that are improving their health and wellness do extensive research on their food, supplements, and workouts before they purchase. The same should be true for CBD products. Not all CBD is created equal and if you don’t get a quality product or brand, you will have a bad first impression on CBD and how it can help your wellness. Here are some tips on how to find quality products that you can trust:
Do Your Research: Determining what CBD product to try can be a difficult task. Make sure you do your research on how the company sources and processes their hemp. Make sure the hemp is grown following the highest quality federal standards including hemp that is pesticide and heavy metal free.
Third Party Testing: Not all CBD is sourced or processed with the highest quality standards. Make sure the products you try provide third party testing results for each batch or product.
Ask questions: Don’t be afraid to reach out to the company directly. A good brand will be willing to help educate you on your CBD journey to find what the best product and dosage is for you.
Find the right product for you: CBD products provide a wide array of benefits from overall wellness, pain relief, and many other medical conditions. Finding the right product can be the key to getting the most benefit for you. For example, if you are active and love to get a good workout in or mountain bike on the weekends, you most likely experience pain or soreness from physical activity. A pain cream would be more effective than a tincture in this case as you would want to apply our Hemp Sports Cream directly to your sore muscles to provide relief and recovery.
Look at reviews: Customer reviews can be very helpful to see what customers have to say about a specific brand or product. A company might have a great brand but have bad reviews on their customer service. Reviews tell a story about a brand and give you an indication if you should try their products and potentially become a lifelong customer.
Price: CBD products vary in price. A good rule of thumb is to not purchase the cheapest products you can find. These are most likely low grade and low quality sources of CBD products that aren’t going to provide any wellness benefits. If you want to find quality products, you will have to pay mid to higher market prices to get the effects and concentration you are looking for. As the saying goes, You Get What You Pay For.
