CBD Cannabis Products are generally safe
CBD Cannabis products are not likely to cause side effects. Even if the CBD products contain THC, are not likely to cause side effects with this delivery method. CBD can cause drug interactions. Before using CBD products, especially if you already take other medications we always recommend speaking with your doctor. You likely do not need to worry about drug interactions when using CBD products topically.
It is very important you test a small amount on your skin first before applying liberally to the affected area. Allergic reactions have occurred and you need to test yourself to see if you are allergic. It’s also not recommended to use CBD skin products which contain alcohol as this could make some skin conditions worse.
If you have an allergic reaction, it may not necessarily be an allergic reaction to CBD or one of the Cannabinoids. You may be having an allergic response to an additive in the product you are using. Check product labels.
After making sure you are not allergic, you can liberally apply CBD products to any place you have pain or skin irritation. People with arthritis pain have reported fast relief by applying Cannabinoid rich topical products directly to an inflamed and painful joint.
