What is CBD Salve?

CBD Salve is a type of ointment which is made from the extracts of a cannabis plant. It is applied topically. This means applying it on the body’s surface- the skin in order to treat skin issues and physical discomfort.

1. Types of CBD Salve

The type of salve depends on the type of CBD infused in it:

  • Pure isolate CBD salve
  1. This consists of pure, isolated cannabidiol and nothing else in the mix.
  2. It is stripped of other cannabinoids and Terpenes, leaving just cannabidiol.
  3. These deliver the concentrated effects of just that singular compound.
  4. This would be a better option if you are looking for a strong dose of isolated cannabidiol to apply.
  • Full-Spectrum CBD salve
  1. This is made of minimally refined cannabinoid oil.
  2. This leaves the cannabinoids and Terpenes intact, giving you full-spectrum cannabidiol.
  3. Full spectrum salves have several cannabinoids and Terpenes.
  4. They would be a better option for you if you are looking for a wider reach of topical benefits

2. Benefits of CBD Salve

  • When you apply a salve topically, the skin cell membranes take in the cannabinoid through the lipids present in the oil base.
  • It is a good choice for joint-and-muscle specific pain and skin-specific conditions which break out into rashes like eczema and psoriasis.
  • When it is applied, it acts quickly on the Inflammation and begins to heal the surrounding cells and tissues.
  • It is an effective solution for pains that happen due to arthritis and other chronic pain conditions.
  • You can give yourself targeted relief right at the source of pain or discomfort as you apply it directly onto the desired area.

3. How to use CBD salve?

  • For an affected joint or muscle area, take a little bit in your hands and massage it slowly into the spot.
  •  In case of a skin disorder like psoriasis, apply it on the problem area.
  • Avoid using them on the skin that is broken or prone to irritation. The active ingredients in the mix could make the irritation worse.
  • Small amounts each time for application works well. Less is more.
  • For joints and muscles that are affected, apply the balm 3-4 times per day.
  • For psoriasis and eczema, apply whenever you feel the area flare up.

4. Why choose CBD salve?

  •  Salves absorb very quickly when applied on the skin.
  • Since their base is made of oil, it enables the faster absorption of cannabidiol through the skin.
  • It can effectively treat skin issues characterized by breakouts like eczema and psoriasis.
  • Pains from stressed joints and muscle sprains can be relieved almost instantly upon application.
  • CBD Salves use oils and wax as a base. Because of this, some may feel that it is too sticky or thick.
  • Salves are limited to the topical application only. Therefore, they can’t and should not be ingested.
