In case you have been living under a rock for the last few years, CBD, cannabidiol is being used in tons of beauty products these days. If you’re not up to scratch on what exactly CBD is, it is one of the most active compounds found in the hemp plant. Research is still on going but CBD is found in an array of products nowadays such as tinctures, capsules, clothes, balms and even bedding.
What is CBD Balm and What Products are Available?
As we just mentioned, CBD balms are a new and ever-growing topical that is popping up in the cosmetic sector. As the name suggests, CBD balm is a balm or topical containing CBD oil. We produce our CBD oil by cold-pressing the seeds of the hemp plant. The oil is then taken and mixed into a balm, along with an array of other natural ingredients. Balms are skincare products that often contain butter, wax, or oils combined with an active ingredient. In this case, it is hemp CBD oil. Balms, albeit similar to creams, contain no water.
Now that we have a brief understanding of what CBD balm is - let’s have a look at it a little closer.
Does CBD Balm make you tired?
A question commonly asked is will CBD balm make you tired. The answer to that is no. The balm will not make you feel tired or sleepy.
CBD balm like Celtic Wind’s CBD muscle balm is applied to a specific area that might help tired and tense muscles. When you apply the balm directly to the skin, it is absorbed and reacts with the endocannabinoid receptors in the skin. This process here might help to ease feelings of tension.
Well, what would happen if you used too much balm? Would you be tired then? Because CBD balm is applied through the skin, the compound does not enter the bloodstream, and for this reason, it is unlikely to leave you feeling sleepy.
How to use CBD Balm
When researching and buying CBD balm and CBD products alike, it is imperative you follow all instructions on the packaging and do not exceed the indicated dose on the label.
Applying CBD balm is pretty straightforward. Take a small amount in your palm, massage it into your hands - this effectively heats up the balm to soften the product making it easier to apply - and gently massage the balm into the skin of the affected area.
For those who are new to CBD and CBD products, it is recommended you use the lowest dosage possible. Once you understand how your body reacts to CBD, then begin to increase the dose. Thankfully Celtic Wind has a CBD Muscle Balm that comes in 300mg and 600mg. Celtic Wind’s CBD Muscle balm contains a whole mixture of goodness like turmeric, frankincense, Butyrospermum parkii butter, and our famous broad-spectrum hemp CBD oil.
What can you use CBD Balm for?
CBD research is relatively in their infancy. Research shows that the human body is made up of a complex network of cannabinoid receptors and neurotransmitters. As the skin contains many of these cannabinoid receptors, topical CBD products like CBD muscle balm is used to ease the feeling of tired and tense muscles.
