Topical CBD Cream Gets Straight to the Point
Organizations around the world are investing time and resources on the study of Cannabidiol (CBD), and who can blame them? These studies continue to provide evidence that CBD has numerous health benefits and uses. In particular, applying a topical CBD cream for pain relief to a specific pain point is effective in managing symptoms of inflammation, arthritis, and pain.
CBD Studies Prove Its Efficacy
A recent study using rats listed in the U.S. National Library of Medicine found that topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviours and inflammation without evident side-effects.
“Transdermal CBD significantly reduced joint swelling, limb posture scores as a rating of spontaneous pain, immune cell infiltration and thickening of the synovial membrane in a dose-dependent manner. Exploratory behavior was not altered by CBD indicating limited effect on higher brain function.”
A more recent study also using rats proved that CBD prevents pain in osteoarthritis and joint neuropathy. The initial aim of this study was to assess the effect of locally administered CBD on joint pain in animals with end-stage OA.
“This study showed for the first time that local CBD administration inhibited pain and peripheral sensitisation in established OA. Topical treatment with CBD reduced leukocyte trafficking and joint hyperaemia during the early stages of MIA. By attenuating this initial inflammatory response with CBD, end-stage OA pain and peripheral neuropathy were abrogated. Thus, CBD may be a safe therapeutic to treat OA pain locally as well as block the acute inflammatory flares that drive disease progression and joint neuropathy.”
Now that the legislature has removed many of the hurdles surrounding cultivation and use of industrial hemp to extract CBD, we can expect to hear further supporting evidence that CBD relieves pain, reduces inflammation and more.
Oral CBD vs. Topical CBD
CBD exploration in Texas is still relatively uncharted territory, and many are very new to the idea of integrating CBD into their daily life. If that sounds like you, we encourage you to visit us at Hill Country Pharm Haus. Our CBD educators love introducing newcomers to the various product types and applications.
When customers are looking for an organic cannabidiol product, our team is often asked about the differences between an oral CBD product versus a topical CBD product. Hill Country Pharm Haus manufactures both product types aimed at reducing pain associated with conditions like arthritis and inflammation.
Is there an advantage to taking CBD orally? Yes and no. If taken orally with an oil tincture, oral spray or CBD Water, the CBD will go to work throughout your body. Our full-spectrum and isolate tinctures can be taken orally, or sublingually under the tongue, or can be added to your food, drink or salve.
Do you have pain in a specific area or joint? Then you should consider a CBD cream for pain relief and inflammation. Topical application of CBD produces faster results and is more focused than the oral alternative. When you mix the oil into a salve or use our CBD pain cream, the CBD is applied directly to and benefits the affected area.
