CBD Creams

The world of CBD is made up of all kinds of products, as long as they can mix with cannabidiol. CBD cream is an iteration of this format, which is why you will find legitimate CBD cream UK suppliers at Revital, the UK’s leading health and wellbeing store.

CBD cream is a topical form of the product. Most of the lotions and creams sold are roughly half water and half oil.

CBD face cream is face cream, but with CBD. It could have some minor, non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids and terpenes in it.

These properties, the consistency of the cream, the CBD concentration level, and other factors impact the benefits you can derive from the product. With that in mind, we advise that you buy from regulated suppliers.


How does CBD cream work?

To answer that, we have to talk a bit about some of the technical aspects.

When you buy any of the best CBD cream UK manufacturers make, there will be differences in texture. Creams, salves, and lotions have a different consistency and thus will be absorbed differently when applied topically (on the skin).

If you, for instance, go for a salve (usually oil and wax, without water), your absorption rate may be minuscule but perfect for dry skin. CBD cream for skin, on the other hand, may absorb faster and could be more preferred if a person is looking for CBD cream for arthritis pain or muscle soreness.

NOTE: Patches, though applied on the skin, have other technologies that aim to deposit the chemical into the bloodstream and not just on the skin. They do not fall under this category of creams, salves, and lotions.

The CBD cream for pain absorbed into the body (especially when accompanied by other relevant terpenes, flavonoids, and extracts) binds with cell receptors in the skin, nerves, and muscle tissue. The interaction with the endocannabinoid system regulates the pain receptor levels, among other things, to produce relief.


How is CBD cream used?

Using topicals of any kind is very easy. All you have to do is apply the CBD cream on and around the affected area to feel the benefits. This is called localized treatment since you limit the CBD's travel to just around the affected area, which is different from eating the stuff (the oil, not the cream).

NOTE: As a rule of thumb, the lower the concentration of CBD in the product, the less effective it is. However, we also maintain that you start with a low viable and increase over time, as needed.


The benefits of CBD cream

There are several potential benefits of using CBD cream. They can include for some people:

  • Arthritis pain management (CBD arthritis cream regulates pain)
  • Inflammation and pain modulation
  • Skin conditions
  • Care for deep wounds

When it comes to picking the best CBD pain relief cream UK suppliers have to offer, we stock a wide selection of the various CBD-infused that make it easier to check out concentration levels, manufacturer facts and more, for your peace of mind.

Can you rub CBD on your skin?

Yes, you can. CBD does work on the skin too. The effects are different, though, and leverage the cannabinoid receptors accessible via the pores on your skin. However, it is advised to use the ingestion method for maximum utilization since CBD has low bioavailability. Feel free to augment yourself with creams for full effect.

How long does it take for CBD anti-inflammatory cream UK products to work?

That usually depends on the type of cream you use, the level of CBD concentration, and how much you apply.

What is CBD cream used for?

According to research done on the cream, it would seem that CBD reduces intense pain, cold, itchy sensations, and sharp pains when applied to the skin. Cream application is also called topical application and refers to the fact that you have to smear it on the affected area. You can substitute lotion with CBD cream when dealing with skin disorders to combat them better. Lotions tend not to have medicinal properties, but CBD oil does.

What are the benefits of CBD Cosmetics?

While research is relatively limited, CBD cosmetics (done well) offer healing properties in anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to combat skin dryness and inflammation. CBD may also be suitable to curb acne-causing sebum production. Studies show that CBD could be effective in the treatment of psoriasis and eczema.
