One of the easiest ways of utilising Hemp is through topical application. Topicals are creams, lotions, and oils that have been infused from extracts of the hemp plant, much like using various essential oils. Topicals are applied to the skin and are absorbed into the muscles though they do not enter the bloodstream. This allows you to receive the benefits of hemp and CBD (Cannabinoids) to alleviate any stress and tension in your body.

In a recent study published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine they found both CB1 and CB2 receptors are located in many areas of the human skin, including hair follicles, sweat glands and nerve fiber bundles. You can learn more about these receptors through studying The Endocannabinoid System. This finding implies that the chemical compounds found in hemp can directly affect these receptors without requiring a passage through bloodstream. You can learn more about The Endocannabinoid System on our recent podcast at:
