Ingesting or inhaling CBD isn't the only way to enjoy the effects of the benefit-providing cannabinoid. There are endocannabinoid receptors in the brain, throughout the nervous system, and in the skin. Skin-based receptors mean that applying topicals directly to a sore or irritated area can provide localized relief.
CBD topicals come in a wide range of products including balms and salves. These products are designed to help in a variety of specialized ways. Topicals are ideal if you’re treating a specific area, such as a joint or muscle.
