The endocannabinoid system is thought to play an important role in the immune response of our skin.
An improper immune response can result in inflammation and this is why CBD is being researched as an anti-inflammatory for inflammation-related skin conditions.
Other important functions of the endocannabinoid system in the skin include regulation of cell growth and wound healing.
Both CB1 and CB2 receptors have been found throughout the skin.
Due to the fact that your skin Is the largest organ in the human body, it makes sense that by applying a topical lotion to your skin that you will benefit from CBD and other ingredients that are in your topical CBD product.
When you apply your CBD lotion onto your skin the CBD is absorbed into your skin along with the additional ingredients in your lotion. It’s not any different than when you use face cream or sunscreen.
Since CBD lotion is applied to a specific location on your body, the benefits that the CBD are bringing to your body are hyper-focused on the area that you applied the CBD lotion.
If you tend to get arthritis in a knee or a shooting pain in your neck, CBD lotion can be used to focus the CBD to an exact location of the body.
The skin is excellent at absorbing and delivering nutrients from lotions or oils that are applied to it, and in this case, the CBD that is in your product gets absorbed as well.
