How To Use Ointments, Creams, and Other CBD Topical Products


There are many ways to consume CBD products. Sublingual tinctures, capsules, and even vape cartridges are becoming more and more popular.  Everyone is trying to find the right CBD product that works the best for them. As explained in our previous articles, CBD and the effects can slightly differ from one individual to another.  That’s why it is important to find the right product and of course the right dose that works the best for you. In today’s article we will discover the benefits of topical CBD products, and the proper way to use them.


All About CBD Cream, Ointments, and Balms

CBD cream, and other topical products, are exactly what they sound like – creams or lotions that are infused with CBD. Cannabidiol is a compound that comes from cannabis and hemp plants. It has been suggested by the research that CBD is an antioxidant which is great for your skin and body. We also know that the endocannabinoid system, which is how CBD interacts with your body, has receptors all over our bodies, and those receptors can be reached by applying topical solutions directly on to the skin. There are many ingredients that are really good for your skin – CBD happens to be one of those beneficial ingredients. Even celebrities such as Martha Stewart and Kim Kardashian have been experimenting with CBD skin care products for quite some time now. Different CBD products have different effects – there is something for everyone!

What Is The Right Dose of CBD in Topical Products?

It is always very important to know exactly how much CBD you are consuming or applying to your skin. Even though it is not as crucial as with edible CBD products, knowing the right dose will help you adjust your daily regiment as necessary. When it comes to CBD creams & ointments, remember that a little goes a long way. Most products on the market will have the total CBD that is in the entire tub or container. It’s important to know that, if you can’t easily locate the total mg of CBD on the label, its probably a good idea to stay away from that product! Any reputable manufacturer will give you all the details right on the label. Small amount of the CBD cream will do the trick. Some areas where you can apply the CBD cream include elbows, knees, joints, feet, heels, entire face, neck & shoulders. Of course, you can apply topical CBD anywhere on your body. To give you a more accurate guide on how to apply CBD topicals follow these 3 easy steps:

  1. Clean & Air Dry the area where you plan on applying the cream or lotion. Working with clean and dry skin will ensure that the cream will be properly absorbed, and it won’t be affected by dirt or bacteria.
  2. Be thorough and repeat the application at least twice. With most CBD topical products, a little goes a long way, but at the same time you want to make sure that your skin has absorbed all the CBD. By applying a second coat you ensure that you got everything covered and getting the maximum benefits!
  3. Wash your hands after application ( unless this is CBD hand lotion ) Many of the CBD ointments and creams have certain ingredients that could potentially be irritating to your eyes, or simply unpleasant if ingested. Some stronger creams can include things like menthol or citrus, and you don’t want to be getting that in your eyes or mouth.
