The Ins and Outs of CBD Creams, CBD Salves, CBD Lotions, and More
One of the most popular categories of CBD products is CBD topicals. Topical products are designed to be applied directly to the skin. The benefit of this is that the CBD can be worked directly into to a problem area – a lot of topical CBD users will use the topical product in addition to a daily tincture or softgel regimen. Using multiple delivery methods of CBD can have tremendous effects, and can be much more beneficial than just using one on its own.
CBD topicals come in dozens of different forms. Some of the most popular include CBD creams, CBD salves, CBD lotions, CBD lip balm, CBD lotions, and CBD roll ons. While each of these have their own benefits, they all operate the same way: the substance is applied, and the CBD is absorbed through the skin. The main things you’ll want to keep in mind when choosing a topical product are the source and quality of the CBD, as well as the quality of the rest of the ingredients. Not all CBD topicals are created equal; some contain very minimal amounts of CBD at all. A few things to think about when deciding on what product to go with:
- Is the topical isolate-based or full spectrum?
- What other ingredients are being used?
- Who is making the product?
- Can I see lab tests?
CBD products can be extremely beneficial, but can also be somewhat costly – before you buy, make sure you’re doing a bit of homework on who you’re buying with. Extract Labs provides a wide range of CBD topicals, including CBD Lip Balm, CBD Body Cream, and their famous CBD Muscle Cream – According to Buzzfeed, “Extract Labs CBD Muscle Cream has low-key reached cult status in the chronic pain community”. Here’s a breakdown of Extract Labs CBD Topical products:
CBD Lip Balm
Extract Labs CBD Lip Balm is a life saver on dry Colorado days. This full spectrum lip balm is packed with 200mg of high quality CBD – it is also more than three times larger than a traditional lip balm. That makes it pretty hard to misplace!
CBD Body Cream
Extract Labs Body Cream is a truly unique CBD cream that smells and feels incredible. Common applications include moisturizing, sunburn relief, and even battling acne. If you’re looking for CBD for the face, this is the way to go.
CBD Muscle Cream
Extract Labs Muscle Cream is a fan favorite, and by far their most popular CBD topical product. Trusted by the likes of pro skater Andy Macdonald, UFC fighter Cris Cyborg, Olympian Hagen Kearney, and more than a handful of WWE Superstars, this stuff is an athlete’s best friend. However, that doesn’t mean that you and your grandmother can’t benefit from it as well! The CBD Muscle Cream is made with the same ingredients as the CBD Body Cream, but with added menthol and arnica. This gives it a bit of an “icy hot” sensation for added relief. As for the questions posed earlier about what you should look for in a CBD topical product:
- All of Extract Labs CBD topicals are full spectrum, not isolate-based.
- All of Extract Labs CBD topicals are made with organic ingredients, which are listed on the product pages, as well as the packaging itself.
- Extract Labs manufactures all of their own products in-house in their state of the art Colorado laboratory.
- All of Extract Labs’ products are 3rd party lab tested on a batch by batch level – these lab reports are all available for viewing in the Batch Database located at ExtractLabs.com
