What is CBD Cream and What Is It Good For?


It’s no secret that CBD is popping up everywhere. You can drink it, you can have it in your toothpaste, snacks, and most importantly it can be applied topically through skincare. But is it worth the hype? In short, when CBD is extracted carefully and in the cleanest way possible, yes it is worth the hype. Here at The Feelist we pride ourselves on using the cleanest, purest subcritical CO2 extraction method for our CBD, but more on that later! We want to take a deep dive into what is CBD cream, and what is CBD cream good for. There are a ton of amazing benefits to using CBD cream and we are about to tell you what CBD cream is in the first place, what to use it for, the benefits of CBD cream, and how to choose the best CBD cream for you.Let’s get started!

CBD Cream: What Is It?

We’ll start with answering the question “What is CBD cream?” and to understand that fully, we need to get into what CBD is.CBD stands for cannabidiol, and it is the second most prevalent active ingredient in the cannabis plant. The Harvard Health Journal reports that while CBD is a component of marijuana, on its own it does not cause a high.It is not addictive, non-psychoactive, and exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. The benefits of using CBD are a significant reduction in health issues such as anxiety, depression, acne, and heart disease. It provides natural pain and symptom relief, especially for people with arthritis. Let’s go even deeper.CBD reacts with your endocannabinoid system, which is a complex biological system in our bodies. There is still a lot of research to be done in this area, but the important thing you need to know are the endocannabinoid system’s three components. There are receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids, which all function continuously whether someone is using CBD or not. As Health Europa states: “Receptors exist throughout the body and are a substance to which endocannabinoids bind;

Enzymes appear in many forms, but only two types of enzymes break down endocannabinoids, and Endocannabinoids complement the body by keeping internal functions running smoothly. Understanding the effects of CBD involves examining the relationship between the receptors and endocannabinoids. There are two types of receptors: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily in the central nervous system and are responsible for governing coordination, movement, pain, appetite, memory, mood, and other functions. The CB2 receptors are in the peripheral nervous system, influencing pain, and inflammation. After the enzymes break down the cannabinoids, the endocannabinoids look to bind with receptors. Researchers believe that CBD does not directly attach itself to the receptor but influences it in some way. Activating these receptors is what allows for many of the health benefits that people associate with the compound. CBD can also influence non-cannabinoid receptors. According to Teaera Roland of Lotus Health, CBD modulates the 5ht serotonin receptor, which can treat psychotic disorders. It can also affect the TRPV1 receptor, which is responsible for pain and inflammation.”

What is CBD Cream Used For?

CBD is an amazing, super-powered ingredient that has amazing properties for many different ailments. Research shows that it can help relieve anxiety, significantly reduce chronic pain symptoms, especially in patients with arthritis, and it has incredible anti-inflammatory properties. When used topically, it can help significantly with acne, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. The main problem is that to extract CBD from its mother plant the process has to be closely monitored and done right. Before we even start getting into the properties, we want to mention that here at The Feelist all of our CBD is extracted in the best possible way. We pride ourselves in using the highest quality, organic hemp, and a subcritical CO2 extraction method. The result is the most clean and safe form of CBD that preserves the effective superpowered properties of the plant. We also know that the amount of CBD in a product matters, therefore we never cut corners. All of our highly effective products contain between two hundred and fifty and five hundred milligrams of CBD. It’s really important to do your own research when looking into brands that use CBD. Any brand using this ingredient should be able to answer all your questions regarding potency, extraction, and should be able to provide you with a certificate of analysis (ours is linked in the ingredient list of all our products containing CBD). Our goal is always to provide our customers with the best CBD skincare benefits.

Benefits of CBD Cream

Understanding what a CBD cream helps us understand what is CBD cream good for. A CBD pain relief cream can truly help manage pain from periods, arthritis, and other ailments even when applied topically. A regular body cream will moisturize heavily and soften your skin. A cream is made by blending oil and water, and the oil concentration is usually higher. Creams are thick and provide a protective, hydrating barrier to the skin.For example, do you constantly have dry hands? Our cbd hand creamis the perfect solution to keep deskside for constant intense hydration.Even better, it is formulated with all the most high-quality plant-powered ingredients and has 250mg of Broad Spectrum CBD. It’s an uplifting and revitalizing moisturizing cream infused with 250mg of Broad Spectrum CBD. Bergamot, Vetiver, and Citrus oils refresh the body while Mango Seed and Shea butters nourish and deeply condition the skin, leaving you feeling recharged and balanced throughout the day. So not only will you get the intense hydration your skin craves, but also the soothing, anti-inflammatory benefits of Broad Spectrum CBD. Especially during these crazy times of constant handwashing, it’s important to keep some hydration on hand. In the same light, if the skin on your body is feeling extra dry, a body cream is the way to go. Usually, best practice is to slather yourself in a body cream immediately after the shower so that the cream can lock in that moisture and really do its job. As with our Necessity Everyday Hand and Body Cream, our cbd pain relief cream is formulated with all the highest quality ingredients. Our Do Not Disturb Extra Strength Body Cream has an extra dose of Broad Spectrum CBD and is a deeply relaxing and restorative moisturizing body cream infused with an extra strength dose of 500mg Broad Spectrum CBD. Formulated with a unique blend of essential oils and natural extracts to calm your senses and put your mind and body at ease. A cream will always provide more hydration than a lotion, and prevent dry cracked skin while providing moisture and keeping the skin supple. We worked extra hard to make sure our body creams are never greasy, and that they absorb well into the skin, instead of leaving a layer on top of the skin. Besides the amazing hydration properties our creams have, they are also vegan, cruelty-free, non-psychoactive, and formulated without thousands of harmful ingredients. CBD also has amazing anti-inflammatory properties, so if you are feeling sore after a workout we highly recommend slathering yourself in our Do Not Disturb Body Cream. Many of our customers with arthritis have also emailed us and shared that they have found that Do Not Disturb really helps reduce pain in their hands from arthritis.

Choosing the Right CBD Cream

Even applied as a topical, our Necessity and Do Not Disturb Body Creams hand and body creams with two hundred fifty and five hundred milligrams of CBD respectively have performed incredibly well for people who suffer from arthritis. Do Not Disturb Extra Strength Body Cream is a deeply relaxing and restorative moisturizing body cream infused with an extra strength dose of 500mg Broad Spectrum CBD. Formulated with a unique blend of essential oils and natural extracts to calm your senses and put your mind and body at ease. Another amazing way to use our creams is on your neck and back before going to sleep, especially if you suffer from neck and back pain due to working from home during the pandemic. Tech neck is a real thing! On the other hand, we have gotten many messages from customers who suffer from hand cramps due to sitting at the computer all day. Keeping our Necessity hand cream on their desk next to them and using it throughout the day helps alleviate the pain. Necessity is an uplifting and revitalizing moisturizing cream infused with 250mg of Broad Spectrum CBD. Bergamot, Vetiver, and Citrus oils refresh the body while Mango Seed and Shea butters nourish and deeply condition the skin, leaving you feeling recharged and balanced throughout the day. Both of our creams were developed so that CBD is not the only super-powered ingredient.
