So should I try CBD skin-care products?
Firstly, it is necessary and imperative before using any supplement, extract, or over the counter drug to check with a doctor. Never add anything to your daily regimen before knowing it is needed, necessary, and safe.
Secondly, CBD should be seen as complementary supplementation, never a primary source. Never forgo one form of treatment for another, especially if experiencing relief. Lastly, always purchase high quality products from a trusted source. What you put on your skin or mouth should be just as important as what you put inside.
If you decide to use CBD for topical application ensure your purchase is correct for your needs. Cannabidiol Life Balm for instance contains a higher concentration of cannabidiol, which may help with deep tissue pain and inflammation present in the skin or muscles.
CBD so far has shown to be relatively safe by the Medical Marijuana community and it’s Doctor proponents. Bad reactions to products generally come from additives not the CBD.
