New Science: CBD Through the Skin
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a miracle-worker. Science has shown that it has the potential to reduce inflammation1 and treat chronic pain2. However, while the market for CBD products has grown exponentially, the questions remain – where does CBD come from and how does it work?
Earlier forms of CBD were marketed as oils and sublingual tinctures, which was a natural extension from the practice of edibles. However, research has shown that oral CBD has low bioavailability, which means that, at best, your body only absorbs 13–19% of the CBD you take3 and, at worst, only 6% makes it into your bloodstream4.
In comparison, topical CBD has shown CBD-blood concentration levels that are at least 3.7x higher than if CBD were taken orally5. Animal models have shown up to 10-fold sustained increases following transdermal application6. Topical CBD also addresses the biggest limitation of oral CBD, which is that CBD is fat-soluble and poorly absorbed through the stomach. However, when CBD is mixed with other fat-soluble ingredients, such as shea butter and hemp seed, coconut, and argan oils—like we do for Solace—these fat-soluble molecules help transport CBD through the skin barrier and into the bloodstream. You use less product for more results.
Transdermal CBD is currently available as creams, patches, gels, and balms and is credited with better time-release and safety profiles7. When applied to the skin, CBD is absorbed slowly and consistently. Avoiding metabolism through the liver also reduces the amount of harmful byproducts that enter the bloodstream.
