CBD is a cannabinoid that works on endocannabinoid receptors found naturally in the body and can interact with the function of this system. The endocannabinoid system helps to regulate the immune system, hormones, metabolism, and more. Ingesting or using CBD can boost this system's function and help with a range of ailments. One thing it won't do, however, is get you high. CBD is the non-psychoactive ingredient of cannabis. Only products that contain THC produce mind-altering effects. CBD creams, CBD lotions and other CBD products that are applied topically (onto the skin) are most popularly used to treat pain, such as everyday muscle and joint aches. Topical CBD soothing relief creams can be a great natural alternative to over-the-counter pain medications, which can have side effects and can even be addictive. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can also help to improve the appearance of other skin issues.
