Discover our range of CBD creams from industry leading brands such as Ignite and Canniant. CBD creams are products that are applied directly onto the skin which means that they can work on a certain problem area. Our extensive collection includes a range of CBD creams and topicals such as CBD salve, muscle balm, face cream and much more. For those who already use creams and skin care they're a great alternative but with the added benefits of CBD.
CBD is the more commonly referred to name of cannabidiol. It is one of many different natural substances found within the cannabis plant that are known as cannabinoids. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and is completely legal, unlike its sister cannabinoid, THC. THC is illegal and causes users to experience a high, and it's for this reason that all CBD products must contain less than 0.2% THC in order to remain legal. As CBD products need to contain less than 0.2% THC, CBD is often derived from the hemp variety of the plant, as the hemp plant contains very small amounts of THC but large amounts of CBD. CBD has gained popularity in recent years as many people look to gain from its potential health benefits. At The CBD Planet UK we make no claims about the health benefits of CBD. The wide range of new and exciting consumption methods has also aided the popularity of CBD, with many new types of CBD creams surfacing over the past few years.
Why Use CBD Creams?
CBD creams are one of the most effective ways of using CBD to treat a certain problem area of the body or skin. Creams allow the user to massage the CBD based lotion into the area of choice, allowing the CBD and other essential oils to provide fast action benefits. As the CBD does not actually enter the bloodstream it makes them great for people who are worried about the effects that CBD may have on them.
How Do CBD Topicals Work?
When CBD topical products are applied, the CBD and essential oils are absorbed into the skin and crucially not into the bloodstream like many other CBD products. Instead, the CBD binds to the cannabinoid receptors within the skin which triggers a response within the bodies endocannabinoid system.
Can I Use CBD Creams For Arthritis?
No, we would not recommend using CBD cream for arthritis or joint pain. Some people may choose to do so but we make no claims that our products will help your arthritis, or any pain which may be being caused by your arthritis. Instead, we'd recommend you consult your doctor or a medical professional to find a possible solution to arthritis pain.
Can I Use CBD Creams For Anxiety?
No, CBD creams are not intended to be used as a prevention or cure for anxiety. If you are experiencing anxiety we would recommend that you consult your doctor to find a potential solution, rather than turning to CBD.
Can I Use CBD Creams For Psoriasis?
Some people may choose to use CBD cream for psoriasis, but we make no claims that our CBD creams will be able to help treat, prevent or cure psoriasis or any other skin conditions. Instead of using CBD as a solution you should consult your doctor or a medical professional.
How Do I Use CBD Creams?
CBD creams aren’t typically absorbed into the bloodstream like other methods such as oils. They only work at the point of contact such as the skin, joints and muscles. Therefore, if you are looking to use your creams effectively it’s important you apply them onto a clean dry area, rubbing it in with a circular motion. You should notice the effect on the area fairly quickly.
Will CBD Creams Get Me High?
No, CBD creams will not get you high as they contain a maximum of 0.2% THC in order to remain legal. THC is the psychoactive substance within cannabis which causes users to experience a high. Due to the extremely low trace or sometimes lack of THC, no product sold at The CBD Planet UK will cause you to experience a high.
Are CBD Topicals Legal?
Yes, our CBD topicals are legal in the UK. Under UK law, no CBD product can contain more than 0.2% THC. THC is the psychoactive substance found in the cannabis plant.
Are CBD Creams Safe?
Yes, CBD creams are safe to use given that CBD has been classified as safe by the WHO. Having said that, like with any creams or products you introduce into your skin care routine, it is always advised that you first do a test on a small part of your skin to see how you react. If there is no reaction, then you can continue to use it safely. Before using CBD products we would always recommend that you consult your doctor to ensure that they are right for you. You may take certain prescription medications where the reaction with CBD is unknown. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding you should avoid using CBD.
Are There Any Side Effects of CBD Usage?
You are unlikely to experience any side effects from using CBD lotions. However, like with all skin care products it is possible you could experience a negative reaction. To prevent this, ensure you do a test with a small amount of CBD cream to see how your skin reacts before you begin using it properly.
How Often Should CBD Creams Be Used?
How often CBD creams should be used will vary by product and so you should read the packaging to determine the most accurate period. However, generally you can apply CBD creams every six hours. Some people choose to ally their CBD creams in the evening before they go to sleep as a part of their nighttime routine.
How Much CBD Cream Should I Apply?
We would always recommend you start with a small amount of product within an isolated area to test how your body reacts. With CBD, it is almost impossible to overdose and so you can be generous when applying the product. If you are known to have sensitive skin then please be mindful as you would when using any new products on your skin.
What’s The Difference Between A CBD Cream And A CBD Topical?
The only difference between a cream and topical is the name itself. Both terms are used to describe any CBD product you apply directly to the skin rather than ingesting it sublingually. In a nutshell, CBD creams and CBD topicals are the same products.
Is CBD Oil Better Than CBD Cream?
It is difficult to compare CBD oil to CBD cream and say which one is better. They each have their own benefits and a place in a CBD users arsenal. CBD creams are great for applying CBD to a certain area of the body, which is something that CBD oil is not able to do. For that reason, many people choose creams when they want to treat a certain problem area, whereas people choose oils when they want to feel the benefits across their whole body.
What Are Broad & Full Spectrum CBD?
When choosing the best CBD cream for you it is important you know the difference between broad and full spectrum CBD. Full spectrum CBD refers to CBD which contains the full range of natural cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids from the hemp plant. This means that it contains up to 0.2% THC and is more likely to provide what people describe as the entourage effect. This is the belief that the cannabinoids work together in unison to provide greater effects than they would individually. On the other hand, broad spectrum CBD contains just a broad selection of cannabinoids. Crucially, this means that it does not contain THC. This makes broad spectrum CBD cream products perfect for people who are concerned about the impact that THC may have on their body.
How Long Does It Take To Feel The Effects of CBD Topicals?
When CBD is applied topically via a cream it can take up to 90 minutes to feel the effects and it should last for several hours. It is important to remember you will only feel the effects in the area where you applied the CBD products.
Can CBD Topicals Cause Me To Fail A Drug Test?
It is extremely unlikely you will fail a drugs test when using CBD creams and topicals. A drug test would check for the presence of THC and given that all CBD products contain less than 0.2% THC it is extremely unlikely to provide a positive reading. Furthermore, CBD creams are not absorbed into the bloodstream and so it would be highly unlikely for any THC to be absorbed into your system. Even if it did, it would be such a small amount of THC which would likely be undetectable. If you are worried about testing positive for a drug test then you can opt for a CBD cream that contains zero THC.
Can You Use Too Much CBD Cream?
It is almost impossible to overdose on CBD creams. Especially given that minimal amounts of CBD are absorbed into the body when using CBD creams.
Having said that, we would always recommend that you be cautious when applying a cream to your skin for the first time. Like with any cream, you should apply a small amount first to a discreet area in order to check if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
How Long Do The Effects of CBD Creams Last?
How long the effects last will differ between each person as we all react differently to CBD. It will also depend on how much you apply and the CBD strength of the cream. On average though, the effects should last for between four to six hours. Due to the nature of creams you can continue to apply them as and when needed throughout the day.
