Before Purchasing any kind of skin creme with cannabidiol inside, you need to look at this 3 critical factors
#1 – Which company is providing the CBD?
Typically businesses will buy their cannabinoids from a wholesale supplier to mix into their skin care products before releasing their inventory onto the market. CBD is not water soluble by nature, which means there could be separation occuring over time in the lotion, and all the cannabidiol will sink the the bottom. Luckily, Folium Biosciences has created a water soluble cbd formulation that eliminated the separation happening in skin care lines that use their phytocannabinoid rich hemp oils.
#2 – Is There Enough CBD In Your Product?
First off, if the company you’re looking at doesn’t tell you exactly how much CBD is in your product, then save your money and don’t purchase it. Find another company who is more transparent about their products, you’ll be happy you did.
Second, if you’re looking for more of this cannabinoid in every scoop, then you’ll want to take note of two things; the amount of CBD, and the total ml. of lotion. Now for example’s sake, if the container has 150ml of lotion and 100mg of Cannabidiol, then you’re getting miniscule amounts compared to some brands.
#3 – Is CBD Lotion Really Effective?
Yes and no. Antiinflammatory, antiproliferative, pain relief, and acne treatment have been well documented by professional scientists over the years, so I can’t just foo-foo their studies away as if they are false. If Cannabidiol can help in these cases without producing documented harmful side effects, then they could be a healthy alternative to prescription medication. Due to the anxiety and insomnia studies that have been conducted, it may be a beneficial cannabinoid to use to calm the anxiety caused by PTSD, especially for people who have been effected by Hurricane Irma, the Las Vegas shooting, or if you are a veteran.
What About The Other Cannabinoids?
CBC, CBG, CBN, CBL, and the other 100+ cannabinoids all have their own unique characteristics, especially when absorbed into the body. Most of them do not contain psychoactive properties, you will not get “high.” These compounds interact with the endocannabinoid system in our bodies. Long story short, if the brand you’re using is putting CBD Isolate in their products, then they’re extracting out virtually every other cannabinoid that could be benefiting your body.
