How to Select the Right CBD Lotion

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In the past few years, cannabidiol (CBD) has become an increasingly popular health supplement. Whether it’s pain management, insomnia management, or anxiety-relief, there’s some CBD product out there touted to benefit you. One of the most popular uses of cannabidiol is as a skin care product. CBD products for skin aren’t just hot in the niche skincare market—they’re also on the fast track in the mainstream beauty industry and popular skincare brands. CBD is suggested to have several benefits for skincare, which will be elucidated more further into this article. 

CBD lotion and other skincare products are now sold in most major supermarkets and pharmacies. Chances are you have seen some products at the store and considered buying some for yourself. If so, you should always test a small amount of the product first to ensure that it’s safe for your skin. It would be best to check the ingredients and confirm that a product doesn’t contain any artificial dyes or preservatives.  

With the wide range of CBD lotions in the market today, how can you know the right one for you? 

The Benefits of Using CBD Lotion 

The health benefits of CBD for skin include anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidant abilities, anti-viral, and a moisturizing effect on your skin. This substance’s benefits include a healthy, glowing complexion, anti-inflammatory effects, and protection from sun damage, which can result in fine lines and wrinkles. 

People who have used the CBD oils and extracts from hemp have experienced the same results as healthy, glowing, and flawless skin. There are also reports of an improvement in their appearance as well as their general outlook on life. If you’re looking for a solution to treat dry, flaky skin, this may be a good option. You don’t have to spend a fortune to get the results you’re seeking. 

Using CBD lotions and oils may also help stimulate collagen production, which improves skin texture and elasticity. The antioxidants help the body rid itself of toxins by eliminating free radicals from the body and making cell turnover faster. 

Aside from improving skin’s production, the antioxidants help improve skin’s health and make it more resistant to damage. By eliminating harmful free radicals from the body, you’re keeping your skin looking its best and feeling its healthiest. 

Difference Between CBD Lotion and Hemp Cream 

There is a lot of difference between CBD and hemp products that many people don’t know about. CBD extracts are made from the leaves, flowers, and stalk of the hemp plant. These are the only parts of the hemp plant you can find cannabidiol compound. Hemp oil, on the other hand, is extracted from the hemp seed. Hemp extracts don’t contain the CBD compound.  

Before you buy CBD lotions for skincare, you need to understand first what hemp creams are. Hemp cream is an organic conditioner and moisturizer. Its healing powers make it perfect for athletes recovering from a sports injury, keeping a healthy lifestyle, or recovering from an illness. For people who prefer not to use any synthetic ingredients in their products, hemp skin care cream is a great alternative. 

The potential benefits of using hemp are many. Not only does it have a soothing effect, but it may also help to regulate the pH level of your body. The natural ingredients in hemp skin cream help control the symptoms associated with acne and other skin conditions. It is often used in a topical form and on its own as a treatment for eczema, psoriasis, and other skin ailments. 

Things to Consider When Choosing the Right CBD Lotion 

There are many CBD lotions in the market today, and the sheer number of options may overwhelm you. There are several things you need to determine to choose the right CBD lotion for your skin and your needs: 

  1. How to Find the Right Dosage for Your Skin? 

There is much conflicting advice regarding the right dosage for CBD products. The truth is there is no right dosage, and you should only find the one that works for you. CBD creams, lotions, and other topicals can range from 250–1500 mg per tub. If you find that a higher CBD dosage is not good for your skin, try ones with lower doses.  

  1. Are There Additional Components? 

Many topical CBD products have additional components to help with other needs. Some products had active ingredients like melatonin to help you sleep. There are also topical products that contain curcumin to address body pains. Most of the time, CBD creams contain moisturizers, while some CBD lotions for pain relief contain menthol.  

If you’re looking for CBD creams to help treat skin issues, other ingredients are added to these products to increase its effectivity. So, when choosing CBD lotions, you have to check the labels for additional active ingredients. These ingredients might be helpful or harmful for you, depending on your allergies.  

  1. What are Your Needs? 

There are many CBD creams and lotions available in the market, depending on your needs. There are CBD topicals that are used for immediate pain relief. These have fast-acting properties and usually have menthol for additional relief. These topicals cannot be used for day-to-day skincare, so you have to read the label for proper use.  

There are also lotions that are used to support the treatment of skin problems like acne, as well as some that prevent the production of human sebocytes, which are responsible for producing excess oil that causes acne. These CBD lotions also have inflammatory properties to prevent the development of acne.  

If you want to have that youthful glow, you can also use CBD lotions specially made for skincare and maintenance. CBD contains antioxidants that help reduce wrinkles and slows down the aging process of the skin. These products usually have moisturizers in it so that you can use them every day. These CBD lotions also contain compounds that promote the skin’s lipid production to prevent dryness and aging.  

  1. Are You Looking for Full-Spectrum or Infused CBD? 

Another consideration when choosing lotions is whether it contains full spectrum CBD or is only infused with CBD. A full-spectrum CBD product contains cannabinoids and terpenes found in the original plant. An infused CBD product has a majority of alcohol, oils, and creams, and only contains an added amount of purified CBD.  

If you want to experience more of the benefits of using cannabidiol with your skincare routine, you should choose products that come with full-spectrum CBD. Full-spectrum CBD has effects not only on your skin but also on mood, stress levels, and sleep.  

Some of the top-rated products on the market are the full spectrum. They come in all strengths and have the most potent ingredients. But they also have the most side effects, because they contain some really strong ingredients. With that, you can expect products with full-spectrum CBD more expensive than the CBD-infused ones.  


There are CBD products for skincare today, and choosing the best CBD lotions can be a great addition to a good skincare routine. However, CBD lotions and other topicals may also have other benefits like pain relief and support other skin issues like acne. Ensure you always stay informed about the product you’re purchasing, and don’t forget to read the label. These products may contain other active ingredients that you’re allergic to.
