How Can You Benefit From CBD Topical Products?  

CBD, odds are you have probably heard about it in one form or another. Whether you know a friend or family member that has used CBD Oil or have simply seen CBD in your local grocery store there is no denying that CBD has skyrocketed in popularity over the last few years. With more and more people using CBD daily, the number of products available in the marketplace has also increased exponentially. You can find CBD in numerous products from your favorite candy to popular creams, CBD is being infused in products that can be used in almost every demographic. One type of CBD product that has continuously increased in popularity is CBD topical cream, more specifically CBD balm salve. These balm salves have a texture similar to a lip balm and typically have a beeswax base. When used topically they provide external relief that is unparalleled in the natural supplement marketplace. 

What is CBD?    

CBD, short for Cannabidiol is one of over 100 different cannabinoids that can be found in the cannabis plant family. CBD derived from hemp typically contains extremely low to no THC, which means that it will not give users an intoxicating experience. This allows users to get the medicinal values associated with cannabis without the high. It is important to note that CBD can be derived from both hemp and marijuana, the later typically has levels of THC that are not allowed on the federal level. 

We typically recommend broad spectrum CBD products, these CBD products will have CBD and other minor cannabinoids and terpenes without the THC. This means that users who are drug tested or simply do not want to have an intoxicated experience don’t need to worry as broad spectrum CBD products are THC-Free. Also remember that when using CBD it is not about what you feel, but more about what you don’t feel anymore. 

Why Use CBD Topical Products Instead of CBD Oil Tinctures? 

Using CBD topical products has a compellation of benefits. The first being that you can target the area of discomfort a lot more effectively and efficiently compared to a consumable product. This targeted relief allows the CBD to absorb into your skin and help the area(s) of discomfort. Also CBD has amazing anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. CBD topical products are one of the most popular in the marketplace and for good reason: they work. Below you will find some of the most important factors to keep in mind when buying any CBD products. 

USA-Made Hemp – When purchasing any CBD product, we highly recommend you make sure that the hemp used is grown and extracted here in the USA. There are some companies in the industry that source their hemp overseas where hemp cultivation regulations are less stringent and finished products can contain harsh chemicals, heavy metals and pesticides. None of these substances belong anywhere near your CBD products. 

We always urge customers to look for CBD products that use American grown hemp. Hemp standards internationally aren’t as high and oftentimes finished products contain heavy metals and harsh pesticides that do not belong in any of your CBD products. 

Third Party Tested – At this point in the industry all CBD products should be third party laboratory tested for both potency and purity to ensure that finished products are free of harsh metals and pesticides, as well as THC-Free. 

Traceability: Seed To Sale  – You want to make sure your CBD products have traceability from seed to sale to ensure that you can link a certain batch of raw CBD oil with the oil used in your finished products. This will hemp ensure that what is on the label, is what is in the bottle. 

One company that checks off all of these important guidelines is GoGreen Hemp. GoGreen Hemp has been serving customers since 2016, making them one of the oldest CBD only companies in the industry and they are devoted to their motto: trust comes from transparency. 

All GoGreen Hemp topical products are made of natural ingredients and are not only effective but also economically priced in the CBD marketplace that can sometimes get expensive. Here are a few of the products GoGreen Hemp offers: 

CBD Stick – These are their go-to CBD topical product. Made with three simple ingredients: MCT, beeswax, and broad spectrum CBD oil. The mess-free application and container makes it easy to apply and allows you to experience all of the benefits of CBD topical products without any leftover greasy hands. 

CBD Tinctures –  CBD Oil drops are some of the most popular products in the marketplace. They are intended to be taken sublingually and come in a variety of strength levels and flavors. 

These are just a few of the many CBD products GoGreen Hemp has to offer. We hope this article has helped you along your journey to find the right CBD product for you!
