Do you happen to suffer from inflammation and pain either on an occasional or chronic basis? Well, you aren’t alone because according to statistics, one in 10 Americans have experienced some sort of pain every day for three months or more. There are currently 100 million Americans who are living with chronic pain, and more than 1.5 billion worldwide. As for the type of pain, the most common is lower back pain, followed by migraines and/or headaches, neck pain, and then facial pain. This is exactly why so many people are looking for products that can help ease and even eliminate their pain.
One such product that is getting a fair amount of attention is CBD isolate. For those unfamiliar with it, CBD isolate is a product that is derived from the hemp plant. Because of the extraction process, the THC is able to be removed, which is the cannabis strain that causes a person to have mind-altering effects. Instead you are left with a product that can actually reduce and eliminate inflammation and pain.
Here’s a look at how CBD isolate can be used as a topical treatment to help alleviate the pain that you are suffering from.
Choose Between Powder or Crystal Form
CDB isolate is typically found in powder or crystal form. The crystals are obviously much larger and are really meant to be used for dabbing. This is ideal for a targeted area. The powder, on the other hand, is very fine and can be used in a topical solution as well as in your baking and cooking. The powder tends to be more versatile since you can use it in so many different ways.
Transform the CBD Isolate Powder into a Topical Treatment
In order to use the CBD isolate topically, you will need a carrier oil. A carrier oil is meant to dilute the concentrated ingredient(s), which is the CBD isolate in this case. It can then be safely applied to the skin without having to worry about side effects.
There are all kinds of carrier oils you can choose from, but coconut tends to be one of the most popular options. Other carrier oils include jojoba oil, rose hip oil, evening primrose oil, and grapeseed oil. Begin by warming up the carrier oil slightly and then slowly add in the powder making sure that it dissolves completely before adding more. You can then put the mixture into a roller ball style container, allowing you to use the treatment on areas that you feel pain and discomfort.
If you suffer from arthritis, this particular treatment can be a wonderful way to target the inflammation and pain in specific zones.
Simple, Quick, and Effective
By creating a topical treatment using CBD isolate powder, you are able to create a treatment that is portable and can easily be taken with you on the go. This means you can get quick and effective pain relief whenever it strikes, even if you’re out and about.
