Who Are CBD Topicals Made For?
Topicals are made for anyone who wants support for aching muscles and joints or chronic pain. Topicals are especially good for athletes who need relief from sore muscles after an intense workout. Topicals are also great for after-work because CBD topicals can soothe built-up tension from day-to-day stress. On top of all that, CBD topicals are great for a special afternoon with your significant other.
How to Use Topicals
Simply take a small dollop of cream or rub, and then work it gently into the area that’s giving you trouble. If you don’t feel anything, take a little more and repeat the process. You can use the topical 3-4 times a day or wait about 3-4 hours in-between each application.

Many consumers love CBD for relaxing, relieving muscle tension, lowering stress levels, and zapping away anxious feelings. But for some users, it’s not enough. People who’ve tried cannabis products with delta-9 THC often find it’s overpowering.
Delta 8 can be looked at as a non-overpowering form of medical marijuana, containing Delta-9 THC. It’s stronger than CBD but not as intense as delta 9 THC. That’s because delta 8 THC is only slightly different than delta 9. Unlike CBD, it IS mildly intoxicating and legal in most states without a medical card. The key to that statement is “mild” as Delta 8 has only about 2:3 the potency of delta 9, offering consumers a pleasant experience.
