What Is A CBD Salve?
You might be wondering, what is a CBD salve? Let’s dive in. A salve is “an ointment used to promote healing or protection of the skin.” Therefore, a salve is basically an ointment or balm. With that being said, you’re able to target specific areas of certain discomfort. With this you’re also providing support below the skin level. This is especially true when thinking of CBD salves, because they are infused with CBD.
Now that we know that, we need to discuss the differences between a salve and a cream. They’re not exactly the same. However, they are both applied topically and absorbed through the skin, there are differences to note.
Salves: Combination of oil (coconut or olive oil) and beeswax.
Lotion: Combination of oil and water mixed with an emulsifier (wax or beeswax).
They also have a higher ratio of water to oil (70:20).
Therefore, salves will be a much thicker consistency than CBD lotions and creams. Additionally, our salve stick can be applied without using your hands while you’ll need to pump the CBD Cream product into your hand and then apply to the specific area.
How are Salves Made?
The base of salve is wax (typically beeswax) with the carrier oil (typically coconut or olive). After that, it can be infused with other compounds. Many salves are made with essential oils to increase the wellness benefits.
When making CBD salves, you need to create an infusion of the carrier oil and CBD. You’ll find that coconut is the most common when making CBD salves due to the increased fatty acid content that it contains. Moreover, fatty acids are what help to carry the CBD oil.
Then, it’s mixed with melted beeswax to create the salve. That can also be mixed with essential oils such as lavender or eucalyptus. However, our CBD Salve is unscented, making it the perfect tool for your hunt.
How Do They Work?
Some customers feel more comfortable taking CBD in a topical form such as the CBD Salve Stick. It’s very different from taking it with a CBD Tincture or Softgel. But, you might be wondering how can putting something with CBD on your skin even help? Let’s dive in! First, it’s important to note that skin is the largest organ in the human body. Therefore, it’s important to take care of it.
If you apply the CBD Salve Stick to your knee, it’s absorbed into the skin. And then the CBD begins to target the surrounding area it was applied to. When looking at the endocannabinoid system, we see that it’s very present in skin cells. These are the dermal layers of the skin that are responsible for absorbing the product into the body.
Our CBD Salve Stick also contains nourishing oils so you’re moisturizing your skin at the same time. As we will later discuss, salve can be a more greasy consistency. If you feel like you want something more water-based, check out our CBD Cream. We have a ton of information regarding our cream in other blogs on our website. You can reach those here.
The Pros and Cons of CBD Salves
One of the biggest benefits to note is that the CBD Salve Stick is applied directly to the area. Additionally, people feel more comfortable applying CBD topically because it doesn’t have to pass through the digestive tract or be metabolized by the body.
As avid outdoorsmen, we are used to a traditional salve like Icy Hot to feel the effects almost instantly. With our CBD Salve Stick, you’ll get the same results. You don’t have to wait forever to achieve results. On the other hand, if you take CBD by mouth, like tinctures you’re going to wait much longer to feel its effects. But, when taken in conjunction with a CBD Salve, a CBD tincture can be very effective to promote balance and rehabilitation to the muscles.
It’s important to also keep in mind that salves can be greasy. So, if you’re looking to avoid that, you should try a CBD lotion or cream to see if it feels better to you. Both our Salve Stick and CBD Cream are unscented – making it the best accessory for your deer blind or tree stand.
