What are CBD creams?

In order to understand CBD creams, you must have an understanding of what actually is CBD. CBD is referred to as cannabidiol which is one of the various chemical compounds called cannabinoids found in the plant of cannabis. The other famous cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol THC, both the cannabinoids have their own benefits but the fact that differs them is that CBD is a non-psychoactive compound whereas THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid and it can alter a person’s state of mind and can make him high.

CBD creams are simply a cream or lotion that is infused with the most concentrated form of CBD. The CBD compound that is added to CBD creams is extracted by using CO2 extraction. CO2 extraction is one of the purest and cleanest forms of extracting CBD. This method of extraction also makes sure that there are no solvents left in the extracted concentrate of CBD, as these solvents can be harmful to the skin. In order to make CBD creams, different essential oils like olive oil, coconut oil as well as cocoa butter or sheer butter are added to CBD oil to give it a form of the cream or lotion.

A popular misconception about CBD creams that people have is that it will make them high. But the reality is opposite of this concept, CBD creams can never make any person high. As CBD creams are applied on top layers of the skin, it does not become a part of the person’s bloodstream. This is the reason that CBD creams are also called topical. Since CBD oil is extracted from the hemp plant, which is industrial version of the cannabis plant and it provides a high content of CBD and very low content of THC, which makes CBD oil legal. However CBD oil is consumed sublingually, it becomes a part of the bloodstream. CBD creams are also popular because of the reason that it does not make a drug test appear positive.

Moreover, CBD cream is all-natural and organic and it does not contain any side effects that most painkillers have. Majority of people enjoy the application of CBD creams for muscle or joint pains, it has also proven effective in relieving arthritis.

Besides dealing with chronic pain, acute pain, sore muscles and sore joints CBD creams are also used for dealing with a number of skin diseases including eczema, psoriasis, rashes, skin infections and sunburns. It also helps in inhibiting the buildup of dead skin cells and soothing pain caused by various skin infections.
