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-occuring 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. And your pet has those same CB2 receptors present in their skin, so your furry friend can also make use of CBD oil this way – though it may be a little more difficult to get to, depending on how furry they are!
When applying CBD oil topically using our dropper, start off with a single drop. Depending on the area of application, a single drop can go a long way.
