Cannabidiol (CBD) Topicals are applied externally onto our body's skin, they range from Creams, Foams, Gels, Lotions, Ointments and Balms. It is primarily for (including, but not limited to) pain relief, anxiety, stress, and inflammation. The CBD is being absorbed into the skin, just keep in mind it may take a little longer for the effects to be noticed. CBD Topicals are very beneficial for patients who want targeted pain relief. For an example, patients who experience chronic hand/neck/shoulder/joint pain may want to try applying and gently massaging a CBD Topical directly onto the area(s) to relieve their aches and pain.
