Remember, your skin is an organ, and it is made up of porous tissue that can absorb and excrete. When a CBD topical, such as a salve or a cream is applied, the CBD does not enter into the bloodstream because it will not be able to penetrate that deeply into the skin. So, instead of it having a systemic effect like CBD oil that is taken orally, the topicals have a localized effect that may support overworked muscles and joints. CBD topicals are applied directly to the skin where the lipids are then absorbed into the epidermis. The lipids will then help the phytochemicals in the CBD to move across the skin membranes where it can then positively interact with nearby cells and tissues.
Products like CBD oils and gummies are great to support overall wellness and more generalized issues, but if more targeted physical support is needed, then topicals such as our CBD salve or cream are the products you need. Applying CBD directly onto trouble spots helps unlock the benefits of CBD in the particular area where they are most needed.
There are a few main differences between our CBD Salve and CBD Cream. The first is that salves, by definition, are thicker and have a waxier consistency in comparison to the thinner consistency of creams. The second is that our CBD Body Salve has a heating and cooling effect on the skin due to the presence of menthol crystals and cinnamomum camphora. This also means that there is a sharper herbal scent to the salve, while the cream has a softer, subtler scent of blood orange and cinnamon. Lastly, the CBD Topical Cream comes in 600mg strength, while the CBD Body Salve comes in either 1000mg or 3000mg strength.
Everybody is different- some people notice results from CBD immediately and others take more time to feel the effects of CBD on their body. Consistency is important when you’re trying to find the right product or dosage of CBD, so give yourself a solid week of the same dosage and application timing before increasing.
Our CBD Salve contains clean ingredients chosen for their beneficial properties, from the organic golden jojoba oil and beeswax base, to the full spectrum hemp flower extract, menthol crystals, and cinnamomum camphora that bring relief to aching muscles, and the essential oils that carry heavenly scents and healing properties.
The best way to use Fab CBD Salve is to start with clean, dry skin and apply a thin layer over the desired area. Once applied, rub into the skin for optimum absorption and to active the heating/cooling action of the salve.
CBD dosage is not one-size-fits-all. Everybody is different, and taking too much CBD can be just as ineffective as taking too little. We recommend starting low and increasing as needed. Try 1000mg as needed, and if you find you’re needing it often, up your potency to the 3000mg option.
