The Science Behind CBD Topicals
There are plenty of beautiful facet’s cannabis has to offer. It is dearly loved for its versatility in forms of consumption and the variations of its effects. Extractions hold the traits of a sativa, hybrid, or indica—not straying from its original form. It can be smoked in its natural state, be eaten, held underneath the tongue, dabbed, or vaped. But there isn’t anything quite like topicals. Topicals’ popularity has come to the forefront of consumption, drawing the attention of those who’ve sworn off the idea of consuming anything related to cannabis in general. Topicals can provide relief from everyday symptoms. It accelerates the healing process by signaling the cannabinoid receptors to latch onto the localized area of the body. This act is carried out by our endocannabinoid system.
How is CBD Absorbed through the Skin?
Bioavailability is the ratio or extent of cannabinoids absorbed. It allows chemical compounds to remain unchanged as they enter the endocannabinoid system. This drastically increases the beneficial nutrients that are taken in from the cannabinoids in a full spectrum product. A single isolate, which would focus on one specific cannabinoid, cannot perform the same task. The entourage effect allows for the topical to work more efficiently, full-spectrum maximizing the overall benefits. The entourage effect amplifies the whole plant’s extraction to be jam-packed with THCe, THCv,CBG, CBGv, CBDa, THC, CBDv, CBD, CBN and CBC.
What are the Benefits of Using CBD Topically?
ATLRx has introduced CBD-driven salves in both lavender and citrus scents, joining the full spectrum lotion. The lavender salve contains both Jasmine and Lavender essential oil, and the citrus contains both orange and lemon essential oil. The combination of beeswax, shea butter, menthol, and vitamin e moisturize as the full spectrum CBD accelerates the healing products. Like all of ATLRx products, the CBD derives from non- GMO hemp plants that are grown without fertilizer or pesticides. It does wonders with fresh tattoos, sore joints, relieving the pain while moisturizing the localized area. Another topical product at ATLRx is our full spectrum lotion that comes in 500mg to 1500mg of cannabidiol. It is plant-based, using the organically grown hemp from Colorado. This lotion can address age spots, muscle discomfort, dryness, and wrinkles. The compounds found in both topicals have active pain relievers, allowing for more mobility in your muscles and joints.
The absence of psychoactive traits makes cannabis more ideal for those who’ve never dabbled in the cannabis world. Feeling the relief of their symptoms without the psychoactive characteristics can be an eye-opening experience. After all, it’s another efficient way to prove cannabis is safe. With smoking, vaping or edibles, cannabinoids are distributed throughout the entire body—latching onto C1 or C2 receptors. Smoking goes into your bloodstream while edibles are metabolized through your liver. These forms of consumption are dedicated to the entire body’s cannabinoid receptors. Topicals are aimed at an exact location, externally, which only triggers the receptors rather than the entire body. Yet, they still maintain all of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and other beneficial plant molecules. If you are in need of topicals, ATLRx has exactly what you need!
