CBD Topicals – Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a chemical compound that is extracted from the hemp plant. CBD is just one of more than 100 different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. This particular cannabinoid has caught the attention of the wellness industry with its potential therapeutic properties, offering a sense of calm and overall wellbeing.
This is one of the biggest misconceptions about CBD. We can confirm that our CBD does not have the ability to produce any kind of psychoactive “high” because it only contains trace amounts of THC in some products and no (Tetrahydrocannabinol), the main psychoactive ingredient of hemp in others.
CBD topicals are legal in the UK as long as they do not contain more than 0.2% of THC. This is a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. For CBD products to be legally sold, they must also be derived from an industrial hemp strain.
CBD topicals are used to provide targeted relief to certain parts of the body with absorption through the skin. CBD oils and beverages only offer generalised relief to the body, without focusing on a specific area. This all comes down to how they are consumed.
If you’re looking for targeted relief to a specific part of your body, CBD topicals are the ideal CBD product for you. When you are trying to cope with aches and pains, CBD topicals can potentially provide therapeutic relief during moments of tension and stress.
Since Purity’s topicals work in a localised and specific area, they do not enter the bloodstream. For this reason, you do not need to worry about dosages. Simply apply to the area where needed and massage until fully absorbed.
With all topical products, it’s recommended that you test a patch of skin with the product and leave for 48 hours to ensure your skin does not develop a bad reaction.
To store your CBD topicals, we suggest that you keep it in an upright position at a stable temperature, away from extreme light, heat, or moisture.
