In simple terms, a salve is a creation that has been infused with a specific medicine in which it is directly applied through the skin. CBD Salves one such topical that has been designed to help calm your senses, soothe your skin, and offer complete relaxation.
You may have heard of this type of product as a balm, salve, or ointment, all three are the same and can be sued interchangeably.
There is some confusion as to the difference of CBD Creams and CBD Lotions, in this case, creams and lotions will tend to use slightly more moisturizing agents and water in their overall bases, whereas salves tend to use more fatty oils and little to no water.
This tends to generally only affect the texture as opposed to anything else. The real difference is going to come down to the specific ingredients, which we are going to delve into in more detail.
The Real Benefits Of CBD Infused Salves
It is rather easy to understand how specific medicines work once they are ingested or injected directly into the body either through the digestive system or bloodstream, however, it gets a tad more confusing to understand how placing an item on your skin can help.
Incredibly, the skin is a fully functional organ, in fact, it is the largest organ in the human body! While it has been designed to help keep us safe from foreign substances and toxins, it is an incredible pathway to absorb lipid-based oils, such as the ones that are found in CBD-infused salves.
When a Cannabidiol (CBD) salve is applied to the skin, the cannabinoid-carrying lipids are transported throughout the cell membrane and allowed to heal the surrounding cell and tissue layers. This is one of the reasons that salves are generally recommended to help with joint pain as they are able to be directly applied to the area that is causing discomfort and help alleviate the pain at a much quicker rate.
