What Does CBD Cream Do?
GELTECH CBD MASSAGE GEL provides 500 mg of isolate cannabidiol with glucosamine, capsicum and menthol. This formulation is quickly absorbed by the skin, initially delivering a cooling sensation, and then transitioning to a warming effect.
Better known as CBD, the cannabidiol is one of more than 100 chemical compounds called cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant, Cannabis sativa.
Is CBD Cream Safe?
One of these chemical compounds, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, which means it causes the sensation of getting high that’s often associated with cannabis. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for the benefits of CBD massage without the mind-altering effects of cannabis or other side effects related to some pharmaceutical drugs.
CBD can be found in a variety of products online and in stores, including dietary supplements, bath soaks, drinks, and food.
How Does CBD Cream Reduce Pain? Some Key Ingredients
Glucosamine sulfate is a natural sugar found in and around the fluid and tissues that cushion your joints. This tissue is called cartilage. Glucosamine might increase the cartilage and fluid around the joints, helping to prevent their breakdown. It is also found in the hard covering of shellfish.
Glucosamine supplements are often made using shellfish, though the substance can also be made in a laboratory. We use Glucosamine of vegetal origin to reduce the risks that Glucosamine of animal origin may have and to increase the potential benefits of CBD massage,
Almost everyone knows what capsicum is, though perhaps not by name. It’s the chemical in chilli peppers that gives them their famous heat. This heat makes it ideal for spicing culinary dishes, as well as providing a range of medicinal properties.
Dating back to roughly 7000 years in Mexico, the capsicum in chilli peppers have been known for its nutritional value being rich in vitamins and minerals, and for its antimicrobial properties.
Its topical use increases the benefits of CBD massage, as it promotes blood supply into the applied area and decreases the activity of nerve cells in the skin that are associated with pain in the muscles and joints caused by arthritis, back pain, muscle sprains, bruises, and cramps.
It interacts with a receptor called TRPV1, which is found in the brain, peripheral nerves, bladder, blood vessels and others.
Menthol is a cyclic monoterpene alcohol which possesses well-known cooling characteristics and a residual minty smell of the oil remnants from which it was obtained. Because of these attributes, it is one of the most important flavouring additives besides vanilla and citrus.
Due to this reason, it is used in a variety of consumer products ranging from confections such as chocolate and chewing gum to oral-care products such as toothpaste as well as in over-the-counter medicinal products for its cooling and biological effects. Its cooling effects are not exclusive to medicinal use.
Also, applied to the skin dilates blood vessels and causes a sensation of cold followed by an analgesic effect, which complements the rest of the benefits of CBD massage quite perfectly.
Natural menthol is isolated exclusively from Mentha canadensis but can also be synthesized on industrial scale through various processes.
Does CBD Cream Work?
As you see, not only is CBD cream safe, but its formula is based on natural ingredients which complement one another to help you reduce muscle pain and enjoy a cooling and relaxing massage.
