HOW IT WORKS
CBD topicals include creams, lotions, gels and other CBD-infused products applied directly onto your skin. When used on skin, CBD doesn’t penetrate deep enough to pass through any blood-brain barriers to reach the bloodstream, unlike other CBD methods, such as our tinctures. However, it does provide a localized effect when applied through topical means because it becomes absorbed through the pores – working with the CB2 receptors inside the skin. Topical CBD absorption offers localized relief.
Topical CBD absorption is useful for soothing a specific area of the skin and many of our topical CBD products contain several other ingredients that specifically help to repair, protect, and moisturize the skin. You feel pain when your nerve receptors send a signal from the point of pain to your spinal cord and then to your brain. The cold sensation “counter irritant” caused by the menthol in SOTA ICE blocks the nerves that signal pain, so you feel a cooling sensation instead.
With these specialized ingredients and the wholesome benefits of CBD infused together, CBD topicals are also ideal for reducing blemishes, which is why our products are currently incorporating CBD into our formulas.
