Topical CBD Products and FAQs

Topical CBD Products and FAQs

Mother & Adult Daughter Walking on Beach

With the outpouring of Cannabidiol (CBD) products being sold these days, there arise many questions about the products being sold. For good reason. As a consumer, it is very important to inform yourself about the products you are using and how to distinguish high quality products, from…well, not. Unfortunately, a lot of the time it comes down to trial and error, but knowing certain facts will help you make more informed decisions about what you may need.


Why Use Topical CBDs?


Using CBD topically is an excellent way to utilize a concentrated product on a specific area of application. CBDs work in the area they are applied to, interacting with nearby cannabinoid receptors; this translates to more relief on a localized basis. When taken internally, CBDs will disperse in your bloodstream and spread to all areas of your body. While this may be beneficial for widespread chronic pain, the dosage is spread thin and may not fully address the problems you are looking to treat.

Taking CBD internally also requires daily use to maintain levels in your system for it to be properly effective. Topically used CBDs can be used as needed, and do not reach the bloodstream, instead they absorb into the skin and work to treat the muscles, joints, and tissue in that region. The great benefit of this is the ability to provide fast acting relief when you need it, bypassing the need to go through the intestinal system.

How Much CBD Do I Need?

Concentration can vary greatly, and there is no good answer to the specific level of CBD that your system needs. Throughout our testing process, we have come to find that for a 10 ml roll-on bottle, 100 mg of CBD is quite potent. Once you start getting much higher in dosage, your body may not be able to absorb any more and will filter out the rest (for a pretty high cost). We have also had excellent results with our CBD Happy Relief Salve at a concentration of 300 mg in a 2oz tin. A good general rule of thumb is to start small and add more as needed.

Will I Fail a Drug Test or Get High Using CBDs?

No. When using CBD sourced from the hemp plant there is by definition less than .3% THC (the component of cannabis that is psychoactive). This is far too low to be detected by a drug test and will not have the capacity to get you high. It is also important to remember that CBD used topically does not travel into the bloodstream, so once your body has used the CBD it is filtered out.

What is the Difference Between our CBD Products? Do They All Work the Same?

The difference between our CBD products is the addition of different essential oils to help complement the targeted use of our oils. The CBD concentration is the same (100 mg in a 10 ml roll-on bottle), but we use different plant oils based on their medicinal benefits. The area of application also varies by product:

  • CBD Happy Relief – By far our most popular oil, this product targets pain (arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle aches, tension, etc.) and is meant to be applied directly to the site of pain. It is important to note that it is not recommended to use on open wounds or broken skin as it may irritate the area.         

  • CBD Happy Head – This is designed for most types of headaches (migraines, tension headaches, hormonal headaches, etc.) and is recommended to be applied to the forehead, temples, behind the ears, and the back of the neck. It can also be applied to your fingers and massaged onto the scalp directly on the source of discomfort.

                                          

  •  CBD Happy Calm – Our Happy Calm blend is excellent for combatting anxiety and panic attacks and can be applied directly to the areas that your body holds stress. We use it on our shoulders, jawline, over the heart and the back of our necks. We also recommend smelling it to use as a grounding tool. The benefit of CBDs for anxiety and stress is that it helps not only relieve the muscle tension that results from being tight, but also helps our central nervous system calm itself down and allow our brain to regain rational thinking.                                   
                                           
  • CBD Happy Soul – One of our favorite oils, Happy Soul is specifically designed for depression, stress reduction, PTSD, and grief. This blend was created specially by our founder for her own personal need and has helped countless people through hard times. This oil is also beneficial on areas that stress is held (shoulders/back of neck), but is also beneficial over the heart chakra to help mend the soul. We also like putting a little bit under our nose to continuously breathe it in for its grounding benefits.

                                            

  As always, we encourage you to ask questions and love to hear feedback. We welcome you to reach out to us and we will do our best to give full, informed answers in a timely manner. We appreciate our customers and continually want to give back and help others feel good.
