CBD Creams

Discover our range of CBD creams from industry leading brands such as CBDfx, Ignite and Canniant. CBD creams are products that are applied directly onto the skin. These lotions and creams are particularly effective at treating inflammation in certain areas on the body as well as muscle and joint pain. Many people favour creams and topicals as they can incorporate them into their skincare routine, which makes them extra convenient. As well as CBD topicals being a lot more inconspicuous than vaping or using CBD oil, the salves and lotions we sell also contain additional ingredients that can benefit your skin such as lavender, coconut oil, shea butter and peppermint.

Why Use CBD Creams?

CBD creams are one of the most effective ways of using CBD to treat a certain problemed area. Creams allow the user to massage the CBD based lotion into the area of choice, allowing its natural healing process to work faster and more efficiently. Furthermore, CBD topicals are great for mild skin irritations and even stretch marks. Creams are a great addition to a skincare routine to keep your skin glowing and looking wrinkle free. Our range of CBD topicals and creams include some of the UK’s best selling products, so don’t hesitate to give them a go.

Can CBD Creams Help With Arthritis?

None of our CBD creams are intended to help treat, prevent or cure symptoms of arthritis. However, the journal Pain discovered that CBD had a positive effect in reducing osteoarthritis pain and joint neuropathy. Many of our customers report that CBD creams have had positive effects in helping with the pain they are faced as a result of arthritis. That said, we would always recommend you consult your GP or a healthcare professional before taking CBD to ensure it is suitable for you. If you have any other questions about CBD and arthritis then do not hesitate to contact one of the CBD Planet UK team.

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 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, the CBD creams we sell here at The CBD Planet UK will not get you high as they contain less than 0.2% THC, which is the psychoactive substance within marijuana that causes users to experience the high. Due to the extremely low trace of THC, no product sold at The CBD Planet UK will get you high.

Are CBD Creams Legal?

Yes, our CBD creams 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. Although the THC is extracted from CBD products during a separation process, there may be some traces present. These tiny traces that are left are not noticeable and still allow the product to remain completely legal and more importantly safe. All of the CBD products we sell here at The CBD Planet UK contain less than 0.2% THC and some even contain 0%.

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.

How Long Does It Take To Feel The Effects of CBD Cream?

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 cream.

Can CBD Cream Cause Me To Fail A Drug Test?

It is extremely unlikely you will fail a drugs test when using CBD creams. 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. It is such a small amount of THC which is almost undetectable, so you would need to use an astronomical amount of CBD cream in order to test positive. 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 Cream 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.

You can apply the cream as and when needed throughout the day in order to ensure the effects last as long as needed.
