How does CBD balm work?
Once the balm is applied to the surface of the skin, it will quickly be transported across the cell membranes where the CBD can start to begin its healing mechanisms on the complex tissue layers. It's effective as it can be applied directly to the area that needs to be treated - a knee, for example, or a patch of psoriasis.
CBD oil works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system, or ECS that is found within the human body, allowing the body's natural mechanisms to function more effectively.
What is CBD balm used to treat?
CBD balm can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, rheumatism, eczema and multiple sclerosis.
However, it is important to note that CBD balm is a remedy but is not intended to diagnose or medicate any conditions.
How to apply CBD balm?
Massage into the desired area for five to ten minutes. The balm is non-greasy and easily absorbed into the skin. Wash hands with soap and warm water after use. CBD balm can be applied twice a day.
Does CBD balm have any side effects?
CBD balm is classed as a safe product and is unlikely to cause any side effects. However, it is good practice to perform a small patch test on your skin first, before applying the balm more liberally to the targetted area.
If you notice any of the signs of an allergic reaction, such as hives or itchiness, speak to a doctor, as it is always possible that you are allergic to one of the excipients of the balm rather than CBD oil itself and there may be safer alternatives for you to try.
Pregnancy / Breastfeeding / Driving / Alcohol.
There are no contraindications against driving or alcohol but if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is advisable to speak to a medical practitioner before starting to use CBD balm.
