8 Topical CBD Body Lotions That Will Banish Inflammation
The buzziest ingredient in wellness packs a serious punch.
CBD is a buzzy name in the health and wellness world these days—you’ve probably noticed that the ingredient is in everything from supplements to topicals. Short for cannabidiol, CBD is the non-psychoactive compound that is extracted from the cannabis plant. Proponents of CBD say it has the ability to interact with your own body’s endocannabinoid system for a natural analgesic effect, working to take down inflammation—think major pain relief. As such, CBD has cropped up in a number of THC-free body products (you can also take it orally, too) used to treat anything from body aches and knots, tightness, cramping and even skin irritation, such as burns or dryness. Of course, this means that it’s become a part of many a wellness and self-care routine.
If you’re looking to feel some of that soothing power for yourself, here are a few of our top picks.
