How Does Topical CBD Balm Work?

What’s the use of CBD balm? Does it work? Is this something worth trying?

These are all reasonable questions.

We get it, and we understand the hesitancy to try new products, especially ones in the world of CBD and hemp. There are a lot of questionable products out there.

Lolahemp’s CBD balm for humans, however, is one of the good ones. This article explains what you can expect, how you can expect CBD balm to work, and why it’s worth your time.

Alright, let’s dive in.

How to Use CBD Balm & What to Expect:

This is a topical balm, so you rub it onto your skin. If you’ve got dry skin, flaky spots, or areas of your body experiencing muscle pain, you should apply the balm to those areas.

You don’t need to use much. Depending on the intended result, you may only want to use very little.

For those with difficult spots on their skin, start by getting a dime-sized dab onto your finger and spreading it onto the affected area.

If you’re someone with some difficulty in your lower back, for example, you would take a little more (maybe a quarter-size dab) and spread it across the area where you’re feeling discomfort.

Next, You Wait.

Wait for 10-15 minutes.

Results will start to seep into the area where you’ve applied the balm. For those targeting difficult skin, you might notice relief more quickly. For those targeting the muscles, it might take a few more minutes to start noticing results.

Depending on how receptive you are to the balm, the results could last anywhere from 2-12 hours before it’s time to reapply.

If this is what you experience, then voila! You’ve found your new all-natural solution.

Most people will experience the intended results, as this product is rock-solid and very potent. Some people may not have the same experience, and that’s okay! 

Does It Really Work? The Research Says So.

Here are snippets from the results of a few peer-reviewed studies on the efficacy of topical CBD.

How Does Topical CBD Work, Specifically?

CBD acts through the human body’s endocannabinoid system. This system is present in most mammals and consists of a network of receptors. These receptors engage with molecules called cannabinoids, some of which are produced naturally within the body.

Other cannabinoids, those produced in nature, are the only molecules that can engage with the endocannabinoid system. Cannabis produces over 100 of these molecules, with CBD and THC being the primary ones that people pay attention to.

In the case of topical CBD, the CBD molecule absorbs into the skin and is processed by the endocannabinoid system.

The endocannabinoid system is known to modulate the central nervous system, influencing appetite, pain, anxiety, learning, memory, reproduction, metabolism, growth, and development.

Its role is to modulate these areas of our bodies in order to keep them in check and maintain a sense of equilibrium. In terms of pain, one primary function of CBD is to help the endocannabinoid system moderate inflammation.

So, when the topical CBD absorbs into your skin to be processed through the endocannabinoid system, it then acts upon the system in such a way that can diminish the pain you’re feeling.

Important Note:

CBD will not work for all forms of pain, and has not been approved by the FDA to treat pain. There have been a lot of promising studies and results from people using CBD to treat pain. However, customers should be aware that results do not show for everyone, which is why Lolahemp offers a 60-day money-back guarantee for those who do not see results.
