Topicals are an effective way to apply CBD to specific external areas of your body. These CBD products are made using a wide variety of the same types of base creams or balms found in standard skin moisturizer and cosmetic products. As topical CBD can only penetrate the outer layers of the skin, they can only deliver CBD to the applied area. This makes them a good solution for treating external areas only.
Transdermal products have unique properties that allow them to penetrate through the skin and into tissues to deliver CBD to affected area. Their advanced lipid base qualities make transdermal creams a more desirable solution for carrying pharmaceutical products as well as CBD. Because transdermal creams are absorbed through the dermal layers and into the bloodstream, they can carry CBD directly to muscles and joint for greater effectiveness. Transdermal CBD products also offer one of the highest bioavailability delivery methods.
