Legal Status and Safety of CBD
Before you start making DIY skincare products with CBD tinctures, you need to ensure that whatever you want to make is legal, and so should be the ingredients you’ll use in your recipe.
CBD hemp oil is a cannabinoid extract derived from the cannabis plant used as an alternative treatment for pain relief and anxiety, among many other conditions. It is often mixed with different oils, such as hemp seed oil or other essential oils. Right now, there are even products suitable for dogs, like the ones you can find here: https://www.relievet.com/products/cbd-oil-for-dogs.
What Are CBD Tinctures?
A CBD tincture is a liquid that contains a concentrated amount of cannabidiol. This tincture can be used topically or taken internally. CBD tinctures are a fantastic way to enjoy pain relief without the high that comes with cannabis. It can be used in many other ways, but we’ll focus on topical use here.
To use CBD topically, you can apply it directly to your skin. This works the best if you’re using a tincture with a high CBD concentration. A couple of drops will do! Or you can also incorporate it into a homemade lotion, cream, or lip balm (see below).
What Are Side Effects Of CBD?
There are some side effects associated with CBD, though most of them are minor. Some of the most common CBD side effects are:
- Dry mouth
- Reduced appetite
- Fast heart rate
- General tiredness
Dry eyes and dry mouth are the most common side effects of CBD. As mentioned above, these effects will likely diminish over time. But if you’re experiencing any CBD side effects that are particularly bothersome, your doctor can recommend an alternative treatment. However, they are relatively rare, and the likelihood that you’ll experience any of these issues is low, especially if you use CBD products that don’t contain any THC.
One of the most popular CBD topicals is CBD lotion or cream. For this recipe, you’ll have to do the following:
Add the hemp seed oil to a medium bowl and pour the oil in until it’s filled about halfway. Then, drop the lotion bottle in and swish the bottle around until the oil is tinted green. Add the coconut oil, mix it in with a spoon, and then add the beeswax and hemp seed oil. Mix it all until it’s well blended.
Once you’ve mixed everything, pour it out into a separate container. You should be left with a creamy green lotion. This is perfect for use on sore muscles or skin!
CBD Lip Balm
CBD lip balm is another popular topical product that can be made at home.
Pour the coconut oil in until it’s about halfway full, then drop in the lip balm bottle and swish around until it’s green. Next, pour out into a separate container and add the beeswax, stirring until well blended. Then add the sweet almond oil and stir until thoroughly blended. Store in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 3 months (the beeswax means that you’ll have to toss after three months).
