It is not difficult to make a website and market regular cream as CBD cream for pain, just to boost sales. And unfortunately, there are many of these scammers out there because it is a rather new industry. Furthermore, we heard quite a few stories of people getting conned like this.
Therefore we conduct tests and compare the best products on the market to make it easier for you. Because we want our readers, to make a reliable and educated choice. The recent idWeeds test, Best CBD oil for Anxiety, is yet another of these tests.
The best cannabidiol CBD cream for pain or skincare products are infused with top quality CBD of a very high purity. They are made from organically grown industrial hemp plants and have high concentrations of cannabidiol.
Full Spectrum Cannabinoids
You probably know that CBD is one of the cannabinoids derived from hemp. Yet, there are many other health-promoting cannabinoids in the hemp plant. If the producer leaves the rather small amounts of these other cannabinoids and terpenes in there, you get a full-spectrum product.
A full-spectrum product with THC contains THC in a concentration less than the legal limit of 0,3 % dry weight. Other cannabinoids a full-spectrum product might contain are CBG, CBC, CBN and so on. THC is the component in cannabis that maybe causes a ‘high’.
But it also is the reason why so many people write us that they or their loved ones were cured of cancer after regular medicine had given up on them. The legal limit of 0,3%, does not cause a high, because the concentration is too low. Yet, it still adds to the health benefits.
All these components create a synergistic effect and work better than CBD alone.
Less known cannabinoids adding to the health benefits
This synergic effect is not to be underestimated as reports from users and limited scientific studies suggest that the effects of full-spectrum CBD are stronger and better. Hence, here are some of the lesser known cannabinoids that are found in some of the products we tested.
CBC or Cannabichromene
CBC or Cannabichromene is also a cannabinoid without mind-altering effects. It promotes pain relief, protects neurons, reduces nausea, vomiting, acne relief, and so on. In a good CBD cream for pain, CBC is therefore often a component.
It was discovered in 1966 and scientific research showed that instead of directly interacting with the cannabinoid receptors it indirectly interacts with them. In addition, it enhances the activity of natural cannabinoid processes in our body.
CBG or Cannabigerol
CBG or Cannabigerol is also a non-impairing cannabinoid. It improves intraocular pressure, decreases inflammation, is neuroprotective and is antibacterial etc. In addition, initial studies showed great potential in cancer treatment.
It seems like CBC can block receptors that cause cancer cell growth and is an appetite stimulant. Consequently, this is beneficial for treating ‘wasting syndrome’ or ‘cachexia’ in late-stage cancer patients.
CBDV or Cannabidivarin
CBDV or Cannabidivarin is also a cannabinoid that doesn’t influence your cognitive functioning. It has antiepileptic and anticonvulsant properties.
CBDA or Cannabidiolic Acid
CBDA or Cannabidiolic Acid has most of all anti-inflammatory properties.
