A Scientific Breakdown of Cannabis & CBD Topicals
When consumed traditionally (i.e., inhaled or taken through the mouth), CBD attaches to the cannabinoid receptors of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is responsible for maintaining physiological, emotional, and cognitive stability. In essence, the ECS is what keeps us in a happy state of homeostasis. The majority of the cannabinoid receptors in the ECS are located in our nervous system, which explains why CBD works well for chronic nerve pain; however, recent research has shown that the skin is rich in these cannabinoid receptors, as well.
Can CBD Be Absorbed Through the Skin?
The skin is the largest organ of the human body. Topical CBD was first proposed in a 2016 study in the European Journal of Pain, which treated arthritis in rats with a CBD gel. After as early as four days, the involved joints showed significant improvements in swelling, inflammation, and range of motion. Applying CBD directly onto the skin may allow the active ingredients to exert their effects where they are needed the most.
