Customers looking to reap the potential benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) will likely run into not only CBD oil, but also a variety of CBD creams and other topicals. CBD cream is a topical cream that may contain a broad spectrum oil or a full spectrum oil that contains CBD, minor cannabinoids and terpenes. It can be used to reduce pain and inflammation and/or help in the management of skin disorders when applied topically. The difference among CBD topicals such as creams, salves, and lotions lies in the consistency of the product. When CBD is applied topically to the skin it penetrates both the dermal and subdermal layers of the skin.
