Reap the CBD Benefits Today
One in seven American adults use CBD products, according to a recent Gallup survey. Chances are you know someone close to you who has benefited from using cannabidiol (CBD)!
Cannabidiol, more often called CBD, is extracted from hemp, a type of cannabis plant with low amounts of the psychoactive compound THC. THC is the component of marijuana that makes users feel high. CBD, however, does not produce a high.
Although scientists have not yet reached many official conclusions about CBD benefits, they do know that it looks promising to help relieve a variety of conditions common among Americans, based on studies they have conducted and completed. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration has recently approved a CBD-based prescription medication to treat rare seizure disorders. More studies are currently being done to look into exactly how CBD will become part of treatment plans for other serious illnesses and even minor aches and pains.
Many people who choose CBD over traditional medicine will tell you they feel better using these products than they ever did using prescription medications, or that CBD as a supplement to their medical doctor’s treatments has made a difference in their daily lives.
Part of our mission at Kenneth’s Salons and Day Spas is to help our valued clients, like you, look and feel their absolute best. We offer hair and skin care products in our retail locations and online store to help you access what you need to keep that feeling going even after you’ve left our salon. That’s why it made perfect sense for us to add a line of CBD products to our offerings--your physical health is important, to us, too.
We carry a variety of CBD products, including CBD tinctures for oral ingestion. Some of our products are topicals, like CBD lotion and body bars, which work differently than oils you consume. These products can give you some great benefits that we are excited to share with you.
Does CBD Lotion Contain THC?
Although most CBD products contain low or trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana, you will not get high from using them.
The CBD oils in full spectrum products come from the end result of the oil distillation process. Full spectrum products can legally contain up to 0.3% THC, a miniscule amount. It is possible you may not pass a drug test while using full spectrum ingestibles, specifically. However, isolate-based CBD products are 100% free of THC.
If you plan to try one of our amazing CBD products, you should consult with your doctor and understand that it is possible the THC content of full spectrum products could get into your bloodstream, although it is more rare with topicals like lotions and balms (we’ll talk about this later). Our products will never make you feel high, though, and are intended to help you supplement your current health practices.
How Do CBD Lotion or Body Bars Work?
CBD topicals, like CBD lotion and body bars, are applied directly to your skin and massaged in, just as you would any lotion or balm. Cannabinoids bind to the receptors in our skin, where the CBD interacts with the chemicals our bodies naturally make.
These receptors are part of the body-wide endocannabinoid system, which affects many important functions of our bodies. These receptors are responsible for pain sensation, appetite, immune function, and more. Because CBD binds to these receptors in our skin, muscle tissue, and nerves, it gets absorbed before it reaches the bloodstream. This is why topicals will likely never result in a positive test for THC.
Which CBD Lotion or CBD Balm is Right For Me?
The best CBD lotion or balm for you depends on concentration and the effects you desire to get from the topical product.
Concentration refers to the strength of the CBD product. It is measured in milligrams (mg). The high-potency CBD lotion and body bars we carry contain 500 mg or 1000 mg of CBD. The larger the concentration number, the h2er the lotion or balm. Just like with medication, it’s important to always read the information panel on the label to determine how much you should use.
If you have severe pain, you might want to use a higher concentration to find relief from your symptoms. Milder pains or conditions may only need a low concentration to make a difference.
Our full spectrum, high potency CBD lotion is designed for daily use and can relieve pain, increase blood flow, decrease swelling, and hydrate skin. Arthritis, eczema, or psoriasis patients and those with general aches and pains could benefit from this product. It is unscented, so if you tend to have sensitive skin, our lotion may be the better choice for you.
Our high potency CBD body bars are made to target problem areas with an easy-to-use applicator. The body bars can also hydrate skin, decrease swelling, and improve blood flow. Body bars can help with pains like back and neck pain, shin splints, arthritis, and general aches and pains. Body bars have a gentle fragrance, which you might prefer, especially if you enjoy the scents of vanilla coconut, sweet rose, or mountain arnica.
The main thing to keep in mind is that you should choose the CBD product that’s right for you based on the effect you want.
