What Do You Need to Know about Topical CBD?
First off, let’s recap what Cannabidiol (CBD) is and what it does. CBD is one of the two most important and active compounds found in hemp and cannabis plants. CBD is non-psychoactive, which means you will not get high from CBD. THC, the other most active compound, is psychoactive, and HempX makes sure to remediate all of the THC out of our CBD products so that everyone can enjoy them! But the most important part about CBD are its benefits which include; anxiety relief, pain relief, anti-inflammatory agents, insomnia relief, and seizure disorder/epilepsy treatment.
Now let’s jump into CBD Skincare, and why CBD is becoming so popular in topical products. A common cause of skin problems is an imbalance in your Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Did you know that your skin has its own Endocannabinoid System? Well, it does! And it works by regulating the balance of your skin and creates optimal skin health, or homeostasis. When your skin is unbalanced, CBD helps to regulate and restore that balance. CBD has antioxidant properties that make it very soothing and restorative for irritated skin. Since CBD is a regulating compound, it is beneficial for a wide variety of skin conditions.
CBD skincare products can help:
- Acne – CBD can’t control hormones that cause acne but it can help the skin normalize cell growth and reduce inflammation related redness.
- Dryness – Inflamed skin causes dry skin and conditions such as eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis. Topical CBD skin care helps to reduce the pain associated with these conditions.
- Itching – Research shows that CBD can soothe itching by blocking the itchy sensation through nerve endings and pores. CBD has been used as a treatment for chronic itching.
- Scarring – A recent study showed that a topical CBD product significantly restored scar marks and improved the discoloration of the scarring.

Favorite CBD Topicals
Our SOOTHE CBD Body Lotion contains 300mg CBD. The benefits of eucalyptus oil and the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD work together in this body lotion to create amazing relief from pain and soreness while hydrating your skin! In our custom formula we added aloe and eucalyptus oil to target arthritis pain. Eucalyptus oil works on the surface of your skin to penetrate the muscles below so you can rub it on any problem area. Although, you must avoid contact with your face, especially your eyes. Eucalyptus is a naturally occurring counter-irritant and works by heating and then cooling.
SOOTHE CBD Roll-On Salve with Menthol
We created this muscle salve with the key ingredient, menthol, because it works by cooling then heating. Menthol also assists in dilating blood vessels for more blood flow which is very beneficial in recovery. The menthol sensation on your skin penetrates aches and pains deep down in your muscles, joints, and tendons. Our SOOTHE CBD roll-on salve is easy and mess-free! The rolling ball allows you to apply the salve directly to the problem area without getting your hands messy. (Do not apply to face and keep out of the eyes.) HempX offers the SOOTHE roll-on salve in two strengths: 900mg and 500mg for strong and mild pain relief.
Contains 50mg CBD. Pucker up for this ultra-smooth CBD infused lip balm with SPF protection! The tropical coconut scent is enchanting but subtle. The hydrating and moisturizing buttery coconut blend will leave those lips baby smooth while soaking in the benefits of our premium broad-spectrum CBD. Apply lightly to avoid any white sheen on your lips that could appear from the SPF protection.
Contains 250mg CBD. Sunscreen is crucial for protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays. CBD is beneficial in sunscreen because it absorbs directly into the hair follicles and pores on your skin. CBD interacts with receptors on the skin’s sensory nerve fibers and tissue to stimulate the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) and creates balance in your skin. CBD’s beneficial anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce the redness and pain of a sunburn. Our HempX CBD sunscreen has a tropical coconut scent that reminds you of Hawaii and is perfect for any fun in the sun or every day protection. Lather it on then get out and play!
