How Much CBD Should Be In Cream for Pain?

applying CBD cream for mild pain

Depending on the product and the manufacturer, different pain creams may contain different amounts of CBD. As little as 2-3% CBD may be present in some creams, while up to 20% may be present in others. Additionally, the needs of the individual and the condition being treated affect the recommended dosage.

Starting with a lower CBD concentration is always recommended, and then gradually increasing it as necessary. Use a cream with 2-5% CBD content, apply it twice daily, and see how it affects you as a general rule of thumb. You can gradually raise the CBD concentration if it is unsuccessful.

Here at Quiet Monk CBD, on each page we list how much CBD you can expect in each gram of cream you apply.

The dosage of CBD varies depending on the person, the condition being treated, and the product being used. It’s best to speak with a medical expert who is knowledgeable about CBD and can advise you on the right dosage for your particular needs.

You can find the amount of CBD in each gram on the product pages of each of our products, so you will always know how much to apply. Additionally, it’s crucial to read the label to ensure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. We use olive oils, arnica oils, avocado oils and beeswax in many of our creams and salves.

How Long Does It Take To Feel The Effects Of CBD Hemp Creams?

Topical CBD encompasses any CBD-infused product designed for application on the skin. This category includes a diverse array of products, such as hemp creams, lotions and balms, aimed at aiding everything from delicate skin needs to promoting a healthy response to inflammation.

When applied, these CBD-enriched topical solutions interact with cannabinoid receptors present in the skin, delivering their effects without permeating into the bloodstream. This makes them particularly effective for targeted relief, focusing on areas like sore muscles and joints.

The onset of relief from CBD creams and salves typically occurs within 45 to 90 minutes, with the soothing effects potentially lasting for up to four hours.

How Does It Interact in The Body?

The cannabis plant stands out as a potent source of cannabinoids, which are lipid-based compounds that engage with receptors in a distinctive regulatory system within the body known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

The ECS is a universal feature in all animals possessing a central nervous system. Its primary function is to ensure equilibrium (homeostasis) in crucial bodily systems including sleep/wake cycles, metabolism, stress response, endocrine functions, and memory.

Cannabidiol (CBD), predominantly found in hemp varieties, interacts uniquely with the ECS. Although it doesn’t bind strongly to cannabinoid receptors, it impedes the enzymes responsible for breaking down naturally occurring cannabinoids (endocannabinoids). Elevated levels of cannabinoids enhance the ECS’s feedback mechanism to sustain balance. Other cannabinoids like CBG and THC directly engage with endocannabinoid receptors to manifest their effects.

Both internal and external stressors can disrupt several of our systems. The body’s capability to recalibrate these influences back to their optimal state is vital for our well-being.
