Why would I want to use the Soothing Roll-on vs. the Spectrum Salve?
The CBD Roll-On is geared more for focused, on-demand relief of aches and physical discomfort – and also has a super convenient applicator.
Why CBD Topicals?
The skin is an all-important and multifunctional workhorse, protecting us from the environment, sensing light, moisture, pain (and pleasure), playing a crucial role in immunity, hormone function, Vitamin D synthesis, and much more.
What may come as a surprise to many is that our skin is rich in CB1 and CB2 endocannabinoid receptors – which is why CBD topicals can be such a saving grace. CB1 and CB2 receptors are both present in virtually every type of skin cell. The omnipresence of cannabinoid receptors in the skin hints at the importance of maintaining good ‘cannabinoid tone’ – or the balance of cannabinoid levels in the skin. While several types of skin cells secrete endocannabinoids (such as anandamide and 2-AG) on an as-needed basis, they are susceptible to the same problems that affect the rest of the mind and body – the issues at the root of Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome.
The three types of cell function (proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis) are all moderated by cannabinoids. The maintenance of these crucial cellular functions is what enables life-long skin regeneration and wound healing.
