What is CBD Balm?
So, what is CBD balm? Put simply, it is balm infused with CBD! Balm is a skincare product that you smooth across the skin on your face or your body (depending on what type of balm you’ve purchased). Balm provides you with an intense moisturising experience and you only need a small amount. To use it, ensure that you warm the balm into your hands and then gently apply it to your skin. It’s great for targeting extremely dry patches of skin.
Dosing CBD Balm
Any CBD topical product is absorbed into your skin, as opposed to your bloodstream. Therefore, it can take up to 90 minutes for you to be able to feel the effects. Whether you are an experienced CBD user or inexperienced, whenever you begin a new CBD regime it’s a good idea to begin with a lower dose. From there you can manage how it affects your condition and whether you need to increase the dose. However, you should also take into account the reason why you’re using CBD. For example, if you’re using CBD for acne then it’s a good idea to massage a thin layer of CBD balm into the affected area. Conversely, if you’re using the balm for joint pain or aches, then you may need to use a little bit more. Overall, everyone’s condition is individual and unique to them, and therefore it requires the consumer to use their intuition to a certain degree.
Benefits of Adding CBD to Your Skincare Routine
So, what are the potential benefits of incorporating CBD balm (among other CBD infused products) to your routine? Keep reading to find out!
CBD has been proven to be a powerful and versatile antioxidant. This is a vital compound in maintaining the health of our skin, as a way of preventing damage. In addition to this, it can help to prevent wrinkles and bags underneath the eyes. So, what are antioxidants and how can they help our skin? They are naturally occurring vitamins and minerals - such as vitamin A, C and E - that are used by our body to protect our skin from free radicals. What are free radicals? Put simply, they are damaging molecules that have been created by the environment (grease, smoke, pollution) that then attach themselves to our skin and weaken its elasticity. This is where antioxidants come in! They act as a form of protection against free radicals, and they can also soothe and relieve irritated skin. One review published in 2020 entitled ‘Antioxidative and Anti-Inflammatory Properties of Cannabidiol’, examined the current literature. The authors state that CBD holds many beneficial pharmacological effects, particularly antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. They state that it may hold the potential to help diseases linked to oxidative stress.
CBD is seriously a multi-talented cannabinoid, as research also demonstrates the manner that it can act as an anti-inflammatory agent. Research has demonstrated that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and can therefore help to relieve pain and reduce irritated skin. Further research needs to be conducted into CBD as an anti-inflammatory, however the current research appears promising. This could also be useful for sore muscles and general aches and pains. After all, the balm is applied directly to the skin, and this can provide targeted relief for specific areas of the skin and body.
Acne is a common, yet distressing, skin condition that affects so many people worldwide. There are a wide variety of different creams and medications to help manage acne, however these are not always effective. What’s more, some people would prefer a natural method of treatment. The good news is that CBD has demonstrated its potential in helping to improve acne. For example, one study published in 2014 in The American Society for Clinical Investigation investigated the way CBD influences human sebocytes. The latter are the cells that make sebum, which is an oil that resides in the skin. This can help to protect our skin, but when too much is produced it can cause acne. The study reports that CBD was able to prevent sebocytes from making more sebum than our skin needs. Therefore, it could help to prevent acne.
A further research was published in 2016 in Frontiers Plant Science. This piece of research highlights the antibacterial and antifungal aspects of the cannabis plant. This could therefore help to prevent skin infections, keep it clean, and protect it from some diseases. More conclusive research is needed into these aspects of CBD; however this research is encouraging for the use of CBD for skin health.
Finally, evidence has demonstrated that CBD topicals are able to reduce the appearance of scars from skin diseases like psoriasis, eczema, and other inflammatory skin diseases. Although acne wasn’t part of the study, it demonstrates that CBD may have the potential to reduce scarring.
So, there we have it – the benefits of adding CBD balms to your life! There’s preliminary evidence from studies and reviews that indicates it could help a range of skin conditions due to its antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. While there needs to be further research conducted (particularly human trials) on the benefits of CBD skincare, the future looks promising for CBD-infused products. Plus, there are some great customer reviews attesting how CBD balm and other related skin care products have helped improve their pain and skin health. We also know that CBD research is yet to prove the presence of any additional side effects, so why not give it a try?
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is CBD oil?
CBD is a cannabinoid that’s derived from the cannabis plant. It is one of the main non-psychoactive cannabinoids in the plant, unlike THC. This means that it can be included in many different types of products, as it won’t affect people’s mental state. The CBD is diluted with carrier oil (like hemp seed oil) to create the CBD oil.
What is CBD balm?
CBD balm is an emollient that is soothing for the skin. It will include CBD oil alongside other beneficial ingredients. Common ingredients can include coconut oil and organic beeswax.
Is CBD balm legal?
The legality of CBD differs greatly depending on what country you reside in. For example, in some American states it’s completely legal while in others it’s banned. For CBD balm (and CBD products in general) to be legal in the UK they need to contain no more than 0.2% of THC.
Does CBD balm have side effects?
The good news is that CBD is a generally very well-tolerated substance. Consuming CBD in other methods (not skincare) has been known to cause some side effects, such as fatigue and a dry mouth.
What is CBD muscle balm good for?
There is a promising emerging area of research into the benefits of CBD skin care products, including muscle balm. For example, it can act as an anti-acne agent, soothe inflammation, and perhaps help to manage pain, in particular sore muscles.
