WHAT ARE CBD TOPICALS?
CBD topicals consist of creams, lotions, gels, salves, and sprays that are applied directly to the
skin. To learn even more about topical CBD, checkout our complete guide titled, Your
Guide to Topical CBD and All the Reasons to Use It – always remember, topicals are not
intended for oral consumption.
WHAT ARE CBD TOPICALS BEST FOR?
Best for use with topical support, recovery, and discomfort. Our gels, creams, and lotions contain
active ingredients such as menthol, histamine dihydrochloride, or lidocaine that aid in pain
recovery. In addition, ingredients such as coconut oil, shea butter, essential oils, and other
botanicals are added to benefit everyday topical needs.

Broad Spectrum CBD blend that includes CBD isolate, plant terpenes, and beneficial cannabinoids. The
blend is combined with gels, creams, and sprays then enriched with additional ingredients such as
arnica, vitamin B6, and MSM to help make the application of our topical CBD easy with no greasy
HOW DO YOU APPLY TOPICAL CBD?
Gently wash and dry the affected area then apply a generous amount of cream, gel, or lotion onto the
affected area and massage into the skin until fully absorbed. For a topical roller, clean the
affected area and apply the applicator tip in a dabbing motion directly to the skin. Use more
pressure against the skin to increase the fluid application or use less pressure to reduce the
amount of fluid applied. For topical spray, clean and dry the affected area then spray an ample
amount and let dry till absorbed.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD FREEZE PAIN RELIEF GEL, RECOVER CBD
PAIN RELIEF CREAM, RELIEVE CBD TOPICAL LIDOCAINE, AND REVIVE MOISTURIZING CBD LOTION?
cbdMD’s Freeze combines CBD with the pain-relieving effects of menthol into an easy-to-use, cold
therapy pain relief application that is available as a CBD Freeze squeeze tube or CBD Freeze roller.
This product is best for temporary relief from minor muscle aches, stiffness, and pain.
cbdMD’s Recover is a rich, warming CBD pain cream. Added histamine dihydrochloride creates a warm
sensation to help soothe sore muscles. Ingredients such as arnica, vitamin B6, and MSM help make
this moisturizing cream as soothing to your skin as it is to your muscles. For application options,
this CBD topical comes in both CBD Recover tub and CBD Recover squeeze tube.
cbdMD’s Relieve is a CBD topical that features the power of lidocaine for enhanced relief of minor
aches and pains. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that can provide a slight numbing effect when
applied for an added boost to pain relief and recovery. Relieve is available in both CBD lidocaine
spray and CBD lidocaine roller for convenient daily use.
cbdMD’s Revive is a light CBD lotion that combines our Superior Broad Spectrum CBD with acai berry,
passionfruit, rice bran, and shea butter to keep skin properly moisturized every day with a light
smell and a light touch. This product is best used for daily skin moisturizing.
WHAT’S MORE EFFECTIVE: TOPICAL CBD OR ORAL CBD?
Both are equally effective in different areas of support. A variety of factors including current
needs, areas of aid, and the desired result can help to determine which option is best for you. For
topical support, recovery, and temporary relief from dry skin or sore muscles, CBD topicals work
best. For full-body benefits and a variety of applications, oral CBD such as CBD tinctures or
gummies may be the option you’re looking for.
HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS OF TOPICAL CBD LAST?
The lasting effects of CBD topical creams, lotions, rollers, salves, and sprays will vary from
person to person and can greatly depend upon the size of the affected area and the level of
discomfort. Please use accordingly for optimal results and maintain daily use for at least 30 days
to effectively assess your personal experience.
