CBD or Cannabidiol is the oil extracted from cannabis or hemp plants with a lot of medicinal value. Unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), which provides a psychoactive reaction, CBD does not get you high but provides anti-inflammatory and skin healing properties.
It can help treat skin problems such as irritation, eczema, psoriasis, muscle aches, and joint pains when applied topically. It also helps with its anti-aging properties in your skin by making it glow.
Consider the following methods for using CBD oil on the skin to get a radiant look or relieve the effects of pain and stiffness.
CBD lotion is very easy to make since it only requires a few basic ingredients. Alternatively, you can mix a ration of CBD with the lotion you already have to enhance skin healing and regulative properties.
To make a CBD balm, you can mix CBD oil with a coconut, olive, or jojoba base. You can even make it more to your liking by adding different essential oils to get a unique scent. Some of the common essential oils used in making a CBD balm include lavender, peppermint, rosemary, and eucalyptus.
A CBD spray is very simple to make by adding a few drops of the oil to water. Shake well before use, and then just spray directly on desired areas for faster absorption.
This method is excellent for those who want better control over the amount of CBD absorbed into their skin.
Once again, you can make a CBD salve by adding the oil to an herbal base which will then be heated. Some of the standard herbal bases include aloe vera or shea butter. These bases are then mixed with ingredients such as beeswax and essential oils for added effects.
