Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are CBD topicals?

    The term ‘CBD topicals’ refers to any CBD product that can be applied to the skin. This includes balms, lotions, rubs, gels, salves, and transdermal patches. Some CBD topicals are designed to be used for cosmetic purposes, while others are intended for a variety of physical issues.
  • How do CBD topicals work?

    Your skin is covered with tiny receptors that are part of your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system helps module a wide variety of functions. When CBD topicals come into contact with these receptors, they engage in a complex interaction at the cellular level, which can exert a number of beneficial effects.
  • Will CBD topicals get me high?

    Absolutely not. All the CBD topicals you’ll find at The Hemp Company are certified to contain less than 0.2 percent THC, which gives cannabis its intoxicating effects. Even if you use an entire product at once—which isn’t recommended, for what it’s worth—you won’t get high.
  • Will CBD topicals show up on a drug test?

    If you use a CBD topical (of any variety), you should not test positive for cannabis. This is because cannabis drug tests aren’t designed to test for CBD, but rather THC—which is a completely different molecule. The tiny amount of THC present in some CBD topicals is not nearly enough to trigger a positive test result. Having said this, poorly designed and outdated drug tests have returned ‘false positive’ results for some users of CBD topicals. As a result, you may want to carefully consider your use of CBD topicals if you have to take frequent drug tests.
  • Are CBD topicals safe?

    CBD topicals are not-intoxicating and non-habit forming, as demonstrated through a wealth of scientific studies. In other words, using CBD topicals won’t get you addicted or impair your judgement and motor skills. Some people with allergies and sensitive skin, however, may experience reactions to certain ingredients in CBD topicals. For this reason, it’s best to check the ingredients list carefully to ensure you’re not allergic to anything in a specific CBD topical. If you still have questions, ask your dermatologist or other medical professional.
  • How do I use CBD topicals?

    Regardless of whether you’re using a balm, cream, roll-on, or other product, CBD topicals are meant to be applied only to the skin (never ingest, vape, or otherwise consume a CBD topical). Since CBD topicals come in so many varieties, there’s no one-size-fits-all guidance for using them, but it’s a good idea to start by reading the product instructions carefully. Some CBD topicals work best if applied at a specific time or with a specific technique, and following these guidelines will help you get the most for your money.
  • What are the advantages of CBD topicals?

    CBD-infused topicals have become popular for many reasons. Infused topicals meant for cosmetic purposes often have superior moisturising and skin-protecting capabilities, thanks to the presence of CBD and other key hemp compounds. These compounds can also help alleviate blemishes and other skin issues. Topicals like joint balms and muscle rubs also share these beneficial qualities for the skin, while simultaneously using the power of hemp compounds to deliver extra relief for a variety of physical symptoms.
  • Which CBD topicals are the best?

    Deciding which CBD topical is best for you will depend on your unique needs and preferences. For example, if you’re looking for something to help you recover after a workout, you might opt for a roll-on or transdermal patch. On the other hand, if you’re looking to give your complexion a boost, a subtle cream or balm might be a better option. As a general rule, it’s best to choose CBD topicals that are light and quick-absorbing for the face. Rapid absorption is also a plus when choosing CBD topicals for whole body use, but it’s normal for such products to be a bit thicker and heavier. You’ll also want to consider a product’s fragrance (or lack thereof) and whether it contains synergistic ingredients like menthol.
