How to MAKE YOUR OWN CBD LOTION
CBD topicals are quickly becoming one of the most popular methods for reaping the benefits of CBD.
Full spectrum CBD oil is rich in phyto-cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids, vitamins and other active compounds found in the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol is a powerful antioxidant that contains anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Due to these properties, CBD topicals have been praised for their ability to relieve and eliminate a variety of skin problems such as eczema and acne.
Not only do CBD topicals work wonders on skin conditions, they also provide effective relief for chronic joint and muscle pain or inflammation. Infused lotions, salves, or balms have been shown to provide quick and effective relief from chronic or acute localized pain because they are absorbed deep into the skin.
If you think you could benefit from applying CBD topically, you can try to make your own CBD-infused lotion, balm, or salve.
