For patients who want localized relief, CBD topicals may be the most desirable option. CBD topicals include creams, lotions, salves, balms, and oils that are infused with CBD and can be applied to specific areas for targeted symptom relief. Through this vehicle, CBD is absorbed through the skin before interacting with the endocannabinoid system. In rodent models, CBD preparations successfully absorbed through the skin’s tissues and provided effective pain and inflammation relief in a dose-dependent manner. CBD topicals are suggested for pain and inflammation relief, so may be effective for conditions like psoriasis and arthritis. CBD can also be beneficial for skin’s overall health, and its powers as an antioxidant can keep the skin young healthy.
