Can You Use Oral CBD Topically?

Short answer? Yes! 

If you want a little more detail though, read on for the skin-ny on how this works.

The skin is the largest organ in the body. When you apply things like lotions and skin creams, it becomes evident that the skin can make use of and absorb things that are applied to it. 

With CBD, there’s an extra layer to it.

If you’re familiar with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), or the body’s naturally-occurring receptors that are readily capable of making use of cannabinoids, then you may know that the ECS includes cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. CB2 receptors are actually present in the skin, meaning CBD-containing topicals could be an extra-effective boost to your skin-care regimen.

Applying CBD oil topically can be done as a massage oil, or even mixed into a hot bath. When applying CBD oil topically using our dropper, start off with one to five drops. Depending on the area of application, a small amount can go a long way.
