Fast Working CBD Topicals
Think about this scenario: You’ve just returned home from a long day of work and unfortunately experience a bout of back pain again. Naturally, you want instant relief, so you decide to apply some topical medicine to help you remedy the pain. While ingesting an oral supplement could’ve helped, it would’ve taken a good 20-30 minutes to take effect.
Another downside to the relief industry is that, although there are some amazing options out there, there are hundreds you choose from. Furthermore, some of them use harsh chemicals or other substances that can cause irritating side effects. Who wants to deal with that when all you’re trying to achieve is relief?
Worry no more. With the rise of CBD topicals, you don’t have to think twice about the sourcing of your topical’s ingredients or if it’ll work effectively and efficiently. This is because CBD is a naturally occurring substance with many benefits.
Here at TruHarvest Farms, we believe that everyone should have affordable access to this fast-acting relief. This is why we’ve created a variety of different CBD topicals for consumers to choose from. We understand that different relief problems require different solutions.
To find out more about all our topical products, keep on reading. We’ll provide you with information about the difference between CBD topicals and oral supplements, the benefits of CBD topicals, our various topical options, and how to use them. By the end of it, you’ll be an expert!
Oral Vs Topical CBD Products: What’s the Difference?
Thanks to modern medical advancements, there are many ways to experience relief. Orally and topically are two of those ways, and they both work to provide that relief differently. Take a look at some of the main differences between oral CBD and topical CBD products.
You Ingest Oral CBD
The most significant difference between oral CBD and a topical CBD product is that you ingest the oral supplements. Typically, oral CBD comes in a pill form that you put in your mouth and swallow. Gummy CBD products are also on the rise and are quickly becoming popular. In fact, we even offer a gummy CBD product line that’s perfect for people who don’t do pills.
With topical CBD products, you do not ingest them. They typically come in a cream, lotion, tincture or similar and are meant to be applied directly to the affected area. It might be easier for you to imagine a topical CBD product as a balm. With balms, you typically don’t rub it all over your body but instead apply it to affected areas on your skin that benefit from that relief.
CBD tinctures work the same way. When ingesting CBD tincture orally, you take however many drops you need and place them under your tongue so they absorb.
Topical CBD Acts Quickly
Another difference between topical and oral CBD supplements is that topical CBD acts much quicker than its oral counterpart. Why is this? It all lies within how topical CBD works.
Since you’re applying the CBD creams or CBD lotions directly to your skin, it quickly penetrates all the layers of your skin and directly works to provide that relief to your sore muscles and joints. You can learn more about how topical CBD products work from a scientific perspective in the “How Topical CBD Works” section.
Ingestible CBD supplements, conversely, take longer for your body to start feeling relief. This is because they have to be digested and broken down into their usable components before the CBD and other active supplements are released to your body and bloodstream.
Overall, CBD oil that's in topical products takes at most a few minutes to fully kick in. Oral CBD can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes to take full effect, depending on the person.
Oral CBD Offers General Relief
Oral CBD products such as oral CBD oil or oral CBD gummies offer pain relief to your whole body, while topical CBD products offer pinpointed pain relief.
Similar to how Tylenol helps provide general relief to your whole body, oral CBD works the same way. On the other hand, you can think of topical CBD as a balm or an Icy Hot stick. While you certainly could apply them to your whole body, you typically only apply them to where you need pain relief, right?
As you’re probably thinking, oral CBD and topical CBD supplements are useful for different relief factors and have their own specific purposes. If you need pinpointed relief on a specific muscle group, use a topical CBD. However, if you’re looking to kick back and relax after a long day, ingesting an oral CBD supplement would be the better way to go.
Topical CBD Relief Lasts Longer
Last but certainly not least, a difference between topical and oral CBD supplements is that they don’t last for the same amount of time. It’s important to note that this is a general statement; even the same type of CBD product is going to affect everyone who takes it for a different amount of time. Factors such as your metabolism, height and weight, and tolerance levels all play a role in how certain CBD products will last.
In general, topical forms of CBD do last longer than oral CBD. This is because of the fact that topical CBD is meant to be applied to a specific area. That pinpoint, exact relief will last longer than a more general effect that oral CBD has on people.
When it comes to specific time, you can expect topical CBD products to last for roughly 4-6 hours depending on the factors discussed above. With oral CBD products, their effects likely won’t last much past the 3 hour mark (unless you are using it daily to regulate).
Benefits of Our Topical CBD Products
Our CBD topicals offer you many benefits. Continue reading to discover some of them!
One of the biggest benefits our Topical CBD products offer you is that they’ll give you decreased inflammation no matter where you apply it. Do you have a sore back or knee? Maybe you're experiencing joint pain? Even if you’re experiencing seasonal allergies and are more inflamed than normal, applying our CBD topically can help remove that painful inflammation.
No one likes to stay inflamed. Besides it being extremely painful, looking at different parts of your body and noticing they’re swollen can be very stressful and make people feel self-conscious.
The bottom line? If you’re looking for a way to beat your chronic inflammation, seasonal allergies, or the occasional sore muscles, our Topical CBD products give you the relief you deserve in minutes. You won’t have to keep trying tons of products hoping one will work. With our strong set of ingredients in each topical product, you’ll not only get nearly instant relief but keep that same relief for hours on end without the need to reapply. Feel better in no time!
They Act As Moisturizers
Of course, we couldn’t just stop at reducing your inflammation. At TruHarvest Farms, we go all-out with our products and include locally-sourced ingredients that offer more than just a singular benefit. When you buy our CBD topicals, you’ll get way more benefits than reduced inflammation.
What are the others, you ask? One of them is that your skin health gets better. Applying our CBD lotion and CBD cream will make you feel smooth and stay moisturized. There are many types of topical products on the market. Some only offer moisturization without the added effects of CBD, while others might only give you the effects of CBD but actually dry your skin out.
Our CBD topicals work to do both! You get the relief that you so desperately need from the CBD as well as keep your skin nice and moisturized. You won’t have to worry about any cracking, dry skin, or need to purchase any extra products to maintain your skin’s smooth feeling.
Helps Relieve Pain Naturally
Sometimes, reducing inflammation isn’t enough to take care of your pain. While it certainly does help, not all supplements are built to offer pain and inflammation reducing properties.
Our CBD Topicals were carefully handcrafted and formulated to do both, so you essentially get a dual-purpose product! When you apply our CBD topical products, you’ll first feel (and see) reduced inflammation in the affected area. Just as quickly as your inflammation goes away, you’ll notice any pain you have slowly soothed by the CBD’s calming, soothing properties.
These effects allow you to return to your latest gardening project without having to worry about knee or back pain. If you prefer playing games on your computer or putting together a puzzle instead, you’ll no longer have to worry about your fingers or wrists becoming sore! You’ll be able to return to your favorite activities no matter what they are.
Effects Last For Hours
Another huge benefit of using our CBD topicals is that their effects last for hours on end. In general, the effect of topical products is designed to last for an extended period of time, so you don’t have to keep reapplying the topical and be inconvenienced by it wearing off every two hours.
In general, our topical products and their effects last on your skin for anywhere from 4-6 hours. Like we briefly mentioned earlier, the time they’ll specifically last on your skin depends on a variety of factors. If you have a higher tolerance for CBD, it might not last as long. Conversely, if you’re lighter or shorter, your body will sustain the effects of the CBD for longer.
After the first few uses of a new topical product, you’ll get a good idea of how long that specific topical lasts for you.
Antiviral and Antibacterial Properties
Believe it or not, some CBD topicals even offer antiviral and antibacterial properties. This applies to products like hand sanitizer and hand soaps, but it’s still worth mentioning!
No one likes getting sick. When flu season comes around in late fall and when school starts again, germs are everywhere and it’s incredibly easy to get sick! Of course, you’re going to try doing whatever it takes to stay healthy year round, especially during those high-risk times of year.
One way to do that is to make sure to wash your hands especially well and carry hand sanitizer with you. Thanks to advancements in modern medicine, cosmetics, and self care, some products are being released that combine the antiviral and antibacterial properties of hand sanitizer/soaps and the many benefits of CBD.
Take us for example! TruHarvest Farms worked hard to develop a CBD-infused hand sanitizer. Learn more about it in the next section where we specifically showcase that Topical!
How Topical CBD Works
It might seem confusing to understand that some products can simply be placed on the skin and magically work. In essence, that is how CBD topicals work! Whatever product you have, whether it’s a lip balm or body cream, absorbs into the skin in minutes. It penetrates all layers of the skin and the CBD and other ingredients enter the bloodstream through the dermis.
TruHarvest Farms’ Assortment of Topical CBD Products
TruHarvest Farms has a wide assortment of different CBD topicals. Here are our options.
TruRelief CBD Muscle Cream
Are your muscles sore after a workout? Are you using hot and cold remedies that don’t seem to do anything? Now is the perfect time to upgrade your post-workout routine with our TruRelief CBD Muscle Cream. This award-winning cream is designed to specifically provide fast recovery without any side effects.
As soon as you apply the cream, you’ll feel the CBD go right to work. We recommend using the cream regularly for best results. This gives CBD an adequate amount of time to keep preventing soreness and inflammation before it starts back up again. The more you use it, the more relief you’ll get!
You don’t have to use this Muscle Cream only for workouts. You can use it anytime you feel muscle soreness or tightness in your joints too.
Additionally, our current selection of Muscle Cream is made from CBD Isolate, meaning it doesn’t have any THC in it. If you’re looking for a product that is more full spectrum, start with our Full Spectrum Tinctures!
TruRelief CBD Muscle Cream comes in two different sizes. You can get a 1 oz/125 mg container as well as a 4 oz/500 mg container. The smaller of the two is perfect for travel or taking with you on the go. The larger container is perfect for at-home use!
CBD Infused Hand Sanitizer
We also have premium CBD Infused Hand Sanitizer. This product combines our CBD Isolate as well as Alcohol, Glycerin, Hydrogen Peroxide, and Purified Water. That’s it! We don’t believe in cramming a bunch of chemicals into a bottle and selling it. We use the finest ingredients with the highest quality possible.
In fact, our Hemp Oil Extract is one of the highest quality CBD oils available, sitting at 99% purity. It’s even grown right here in Southwestern Virginia on our hemp plant farm. Even our hemp is grown sustainably without the use of harsh chemicals.
Not only does this Hand Sanitizer provide the typical benefits that hand sanitizer normally provides (such as antiviral and antibacterial properties), but it also offers the many benefits that CBD offers – without drying out your hands!
We understand how frustrating it is when hand sanitizers suck the life and moisture out of your hands, which is why we attacked this problem with a few strategies. First, we used a lower amount of alcohol in the hand sanitizer than what’s commonly found. It’s important to note that even though we use a lower amount, it is still enough to kill those pesky germs and viruses.
The second strategy we used is the inclusion of CBD and other moisturizing ingredients. This helps protect the moisture in your hands as much as possible as well as make sure you’re staying safe and healthy.
Currently, we sell our CBD Hand Sanitizer in one size of 8 fluid ounces. However, that’ll still last you a long time!
CBD Lip Balm
Another topical we offer is our two different kinds of CBD Lip Balm.
Vanilla Lip Renewal
The soothing vanilla flavor combined with advanced skincare ingredients is sure to provide instant moisture and healing properties to your chapped lips. It’s perfect for preventing chapped lips, and great for healing already dry lips too.
Not only will you get great healing properties from this lip balm, but your lips will be soft and feel more plump too. With ingredients like plant stem cells and amino acids, you won’t be able to pull yourself away from the benefits!
A little goes a long way with our Vanilla Lip Renewal. We currently offer this product in a 0.8 fluid ounce pot.
Honey Drench CBD Lip Therapy
Honey Drench lip balm is similar to our Vanilla Lip Renewal, but packs an extra punch. It still has the same healing ingredients, but is configured in a way to last for hours on end at a time. It is especially great for anyone that’s regularly exposed to harsh elements and climates.
It has a natural honey flavor, and will never feel oily or artificial on your lips. We offer this lip balm in a 0.8 fluid ounce pot, same as the Vanilla Lip Renewal.
CBD Anywhere Healing Balm
We also offer a CBD Anywhere Healing Balm! It is somewhat similar to our Muscle Cream, but has its own set of properties that make it unique. Our CBD balm is meant to be used as an all-around great moisturizing and protective balm, to prevent soreness and inflammation before it happens. For example, if you’re prone to sore muscles and are about to go golfing with your friends, apply it before you go!
Exotic oils, shea butter, and beeswax all combine to give your skin the best of the plant oil world. Botanical hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates your skin, while MSM and CBD do their work to keep things calm and soothed. This balm has peppermint and eucalyptus organic essential oils for a mild and natural fragrance.
We offer one size for this product, which is a 5-fluid-ounce container. It’s perfect for on-the-go use or keeping at home in your bathroom.
How to Use Topical CBD
Using topical CBD is simple. Take the topical product and evenly spread it or distribute it over the affected area. Now all you have to do is wait, but you won’t be waiting long. CBD topicals only take a couple minutes to kick in before you start experiencing relief. Much better than having to wait 20 minutes or more for a painkiller to kick in!
Here are some tips to get the best use possible out of your CBD topicals.
Get The Best Kind For Your Skin Type
Did you know that there are actually different types of CBD topicals? While you might not think anything of it, or think that “a cream is just a cream”, not all topicals are made the same.
It’s true that they share a commonality (the inclusion of CBD) but the different types exist to help with different conditions. For example, there are CBD topicals that are meant to be moisturizers, while others focus solely on recovery. There are even special topicals that are fragrance-free, and others that are “hybrid” and possess qualities of many topical types!
Before spending money on a CBD topical, it’s important to get the best type of topical for your skin type and your skin’s needs. TruHarvest Farms makes it incredibly easy to find the best type of topical that suits you. With our numerous options and types of topicals, we’ve got an option that’ll help you experience the best relief possible.
Additionally, don’t be afraid to try different types of CBD topicals if one doesn’t quite provide the results you’re looking for. CBD products aren’t a one-size-fits-all type of thing! Pretty soon, you’ll find the best type of topical in no time.
Apply It Liberally
Our CBD Topicals work best when applied liberally. While they certainly can provide results with the singular swipe of a finger or brush, you’ll get the best results if you apply it generously. Don’t be afraid to get in there and apply a lot to the affected area!
Increase Use When It Starts to Wear Off
The great thing about many CBD topical products and ours especially is that they last for hours without the need for reapplying them. After your first few consistent uses, you’ll be able to gauge how long the topicals last for you personally.
A tip we have to make sure you sustain this wonderful relief constantly is to reapply your CBD topical right before you expect the effects of the topical to wear off. This way, you won’t have to feel pain or wait for the topical to kick in again when you re-apply it.
