CBD Topical Products

When CBD balm is applied topically directly to the skin, it doesn’t reach the bloodstream. Still, it can be absorbed through the skin’s surface to interact with nearby cannabinoid receptors.


Wellness and skincare go hand in hand, so it’s no surprise that CBD topical products are a popular way to use this active compound. CBD is a natural ingredient, and it works well in a number of products that are applied to the skin, such as CBD balm, CBD massage oils, and CBD skincare.

What are the benefits of topical CBD?

When CBD balm is applied topically directly to the skin, it doesn’t reach the bloodstream. Still, it can be absorbed through the skin’s surface to interact with nearby cannabinoid receptors.

Human skin, in general, has low permeability, which means it blocks most substances from entering. As a result, the skin has a particularly low absorption rate for cannabinoids, so the application of CBD balm, salves, and lotions need to be heavy enough to overcome this barrier. However, when applied liberally, CBD is permeable to the skin through its pores.

CBD is suggested to have a range of benefits when applied topically. These include anti-inflammatory and calming effects, which are ideal for irritated skin. In addition, the anti-oxidants in Simply CBD products may also potentially assist with other skin issues such as aging, sensitivity, and acne.

How long does CBD balm take to work?

Topical products often do not give immediate results, and the same can be said for CBD products when applied to the skin. However, once the compound has permeated the skin barrier, it may work between 5-20 minutes after application. Much like other skin care and topical products, the potency of CBD is significant. Many products are mixed with other ingredients, so it may take a few weeks to see results depending on the type of product you use.

Are topical CBD balms legal in the UK?

Yes. CBD products are legal in the UK as long as they comply with UK regulations, including ensuring there is less than 0.2% THC present in the product. In addition, the active ingredients within CBD balm and other topical products are within thresholds for safe application. You’ll also find other natural ingredients that are suitable for your skin, even sensitive types.

What is the best CBD product for my skin?

There is a wide range of topical products to choose from. The best option is typically suited to the type of issue you have. For example, there is a CBD muscle balm that may alleviate aches and pains to soothe muscles. Plus, if you have dry lips, choose the best CBD lip balm UK for great results. You can also select products such as bath bombs and massage oils to complement your wellness routine.

How do I apply topical CBD products?

The placement and amount of CBD balm or skincare should be applied to the skin as directed on the label. Different products have varying directions, and the packaging will tell you how much to apply to get the best effect. With any topical product, if you experience any irritation when using the product, stop use immediately.

Does CBD balm reduce pain?

You have receptors called TrpV1 in your body that keep track of your body temperature. When triggered, they generate heat, which can soothe pain receptors. Using this method, CBD can cause these receptors to be hyperactive for some time, causing the pain receptors to get hot and desensitise them. Meaning if they’re desensitised, they can’t detect pain.

Can I use CBD balm every day?

As topical use of CBD doesn’t enter the bloodstream, it is usually suitable for use every day. However, as everyone is different, it’s best to find the proper application usage for your skin to get the best results.

How to store topical CBD products

All types of topical products should be stored according to the recommended guidelines on the label. Many natural products have a shelf life of around 6-12 months. This is due to the breakdown of the active compound in the products, and after this date, it becomes less effective. Therefore, topical products should be applied within this date to feel the maximum benefits of the CBD and natural ingredients.
