Do you know why giving CBD topicals spreads holiday cheer? For starters, you can never get the wrong size, color or style. CBD health and beauty products are always welcome, and they are easily transported. Plus, the products contain no chemicals or toxins, so they’re good for you and the planet.
CBD topicals for holiday cheer
For some reason in what is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, stress seems to be a problem. We’re running around, shopping and partying; wearing shoes that aren’t made for marathon sprints. Give yourself or your friends a soothing foot massage topical that can give you happy feet.
Tense shoulders or headaches from juggling too many balls – work, family, friends, entertaining, cooking, cleaning etc. – respond to massage using a tension-relieving CBD cream. Treat a family member or friend to a dry brush kit that includes clean CBD lotions and complexion products. CBD beauty products contain no harsh chemicals or toxins, so they nourish and hydrate your exfoliated skin naturally.
Does someone on your gift list suffer from arthritis, nerve pain or neuropathy? CBD topicals are beneficial because they ease pain and have no side effects like over-the-counter medications or prescriptions often do. Plus, CBD topicals are great hydration for dry skin. Win-win.
CBD topicals all year long
CBD topicals have lasting benefits, and they’re nonpsychoactive, which means there’s no associated high. Your friends who are CBD enthusiasts will welcome a CBD topical that fits their health or beauty needs. Friends who are new to CBD topicals may need a little explanation. Tell them CBD interacts with neurotransmitters and their endocannabinoid system (ECS), which helps maintain balance, or homeostasis.
In the 1990s, modern-day scientists discovered the ECS, which everyone has. There’s still a great deal to learn about the ECS, but according to the UCLA Health Cannabis Research here is what we know about it:
“In the 1990s, scientists discovered endocannabinoids, the natural cannabis-like molecules produced by the human body. Scientists began to realize cannabis exerted its effects, in part, by mimicking our endocannabinoids. It appears the primary function of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain bodily homeostasis – biological harmony in response to changes in the environment. Taxonomic investigation revealed that the endocannabinoid system is incredibly old, having evolved over 500 million years ago. Moreover, it is present in all vertebrates – mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, etc. – all produce endocannabinoids.”
What do CBD topicals benefit?
CBD topicals are versatile, easy to use and have few, if any, known side effects. They go to work quickly. More quickly than if you ingest CBD.
Apply topicals directly to an affected area. So, it gets to the heart of the matter faster for:
- Bacterial infections
- Burns, including radiation burns
- Chapped, dry skin
- Fibromyalgia pain
- Itchy bug bites or poison ivy
- Inflammatory skin conditions
- Joint and muscle aches and pains
- Rash, eczema, psoriasis
- Youthful skin
There is even evidence that CBD topicals can be preventive.
How to select the right CBD topical
If you’re considering CBD topicals, make sure to choose products with hemp-derived CBD oil that is free of toxins and impurities. Hemp absorbs toxins from the earth, so make sure the hemp was grown organically. You should be able to easily find the ingredient list for topicals. Check to make sure you’re getting a product with organically sourced ingredients. Avoid products with added chemicals and artificial ingredients that might do more harm than good. Lost Remedy uses only high-quality, organic CBD from hemp for all of our topicals. For more information about what to look for, check out our FAQ page.
