Neuropathy is a broad term that refers to the damage of the nerves or nervous system. It can affect any part of your body and cause pain, numbness, and weakness. Neuropathy most often affects the hands and feet, but it can also impact other areas of your body such as your arms, legs and torso. Often it causes a tingling or numbness. Depending on where you feel pain from neuropathy (such as one leg), this condition may be more common than you think! It’s important to know that neuropathy isn’t actually a disease—it’s simply a symptom of another condition.
To treat neuropathy symptoms with CBD cream:
- Apply the cream twice daily to affected areas of skin
- Rub gently into skin for 20 to 30 seconds until absorbed
How CBD Creams Work for Pain Relief
CBD creams work through the activation of your endocannabinoid system. The CB1 and CB2 receptors are found in the skin, blood vessels, and brain, as well as other areas of the body. They work to modulate pain signals in your body.
CBD creams can be applied directly to the surface of your skin or muscle tissue to help relieve pain, inflammation, swelling and spasms associated with neuropathy. You can use them on any part of your body where you experience discomfort or discomforting symptoms like those listed above.
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is extracted from the resin glands on cannabis buds and flowers. This oil is high in CBD content and is used for wellness purposes. Hemp oil is made from the seeds of cannabis and has less than 0.3 percent THC, while CBD oil comes from the leaves, flowers and stalks of the same plant. Because they come from different parts of the cannabis plant, they have different effects. This means that CBD isolate products are less effective since they only contain one compound that provides therapeutic benefits while full-spectrum products provide multiple benefits working together synergistically.
CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid in the plant, making up 40% of the plant’s extract. It also contains a wide range of medicinal benefits that can help treat many different health conditions.
However, CBD is non-psychoactive, which means it doesn’t get you high—and this is why it’s legal in all 50 states. It’s legal to buy CBD products online or in stores, but because THC (the psychoactive component) is illegal in most states, some companies sell full-spectrum extracts that contain both compounds with varying ratios depending on their needs.
You can apply CBD cream to your shoulder or other muscle groups in order to relieve pain there, as well as generally boost your immune system. The fat in the topical passes through your skin and into your bloodstream, providing localized relief to a specific area of your body.
CBD is a fat-soluble compound; this means that it will dissolve into fats and oils that can pass through the skin barrier if they’re applied topically (on the surface of the skin). If you’re looking for pain relief from soft tissues such as muscles and joints, then applying a thin layer over those areas may be ideal!

Neuropathy is a condition that affects your nerves, causing weakness and numbness in your hands and feet. It can also affect other parts of your body, such as the face or abdomen. Neuropathy is caused by damage to the myelin sheath surrounding nerve fibers which results in reduced conduction velocity within these fibers. This can be caused by different reasons diabetes, alcoholism (especially alcoholism), smoking cigarettes or even exposure to toxins like heavy metals found in some occupations like construction work or farming where pesticides are used on crops grown specifically for human consumption by spraying them with insecticides containing these heavy metals. However there are many reasons someone may develop neuropathy that we do not have listed here.
