CBD Balm With or Without THC: You Decide
Are you looking for an easy way to get potential topical relief? If so, let hemp do the hard work. Extract Naturals offers two stunning CBD topical formulas that each come in the form of an easy-to-apply and fast-absorbing balm, great for targeting those pesky problem areas of the body. CBD topicals, for those who don’t know, directly feed the cannabinoid receptors located in the skin, muscles and joints, allowing for fast-acting and truly targeted relief.
But, as you might imagine, not all CBD balms are created equally. That’s why we want to share with you what makes these two CBD balms so special. We go to great lengths to produce highly bioavailable, quality formulas that can be used daily to maintain maximum ease throughout the body as needed. We offer two formulas: one with THC, and one without. The choice between the two is yours, but if you’re unsure as to which one will better suit your needs, allow us to help.
We make an Extra Strength CBD Balm with THC, and an Extra Strength Balm that’s THC-free. This is the only difference between the two formulas, so first, let’s discuss what they share in common.
Both CBD balms contain high levels of not just CBD, but other cannabinoids, as well as terpenes, and flavonoids, which are naturally occurring compounds in hemp that offer a multitude of properties when applied to the body. The CBD comes from organically grown hemp that is cultivated in the United States and is extracted using the superior CO2 method that maintains chemical stability while preventing impurities from damaging the formula.
Our balm formula was expertly developed using our knowledge of botanicals and plant extracts, as we are firm believers in the superior healing power of mother nature. This is why the formula is all-natural, being plant-based. And, that being said, it’s completely vegan and non-GMO, as well as free of DMSO, a byproduct commonly used as a solvent by other hemp companies that can cause various unwanted side effects.
This topical product comes in a jar and contains 500 milligrams of hemp extract total. This is a uniquely potent amount which is great for those who need some extra help. Further, the formula is extremely bioavailable due to the various techniques that we use, which means that you can expect more potency due to better and more efficient absorption into the skin.
How Do You Use Extra Strength CBD Balm?
Well, it’s simple. With other CBD methods, like tinctures and capsules, you have to be more aware of the dosage amount that you consume each day. CBD balms and other topicals work differently. You simply apply the desired amount as needed throughout the day. It’s not being absorbed internally, and so you can be more lenient with the amount that you use.
Just scoop out the desired amount to ensure that it covers the full surface of the affected area. Then, massage the product deeply into the skin, until it’s almost completely absorbed. This topical is known for working fast and providing long-lasting effects. You can use it daily, multiple times if necessary.
THC vs. THC-Free Formulas
Now, let’s break down the difference between our THC and THC-free formulas.
Our THC formula is made with full spectrum hemp extract. This is a type of hemp extract that contains the full variety of compounds that occur in the hemp plant. This includes cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, as stated earlier.
Now, we know what you’re thinking – isn’t THC illegal? Well, yes, if it’s present in high amounts. The hemp plant contains only 0.3 percent THC or less, which is such a low amount that it can’t make you high, nor cause you to fail a drug test, especially when applied topically. That’s why this product is perfectly legal.
Further, when you apply every single compound at once, including THC, you get to experience the entourage effect, which refers to the way in which all of the compounds boost each other’s bioavailability for a more potent experience overall. This is considered highly desirable, as it may lead to more effectiveness, which is what you would want if you were using a topical for some type of issue from which you are trying to gain relief.
Because of the entourage effect, it’s likely that this particular balm is more effective.
THC-free CBD Balm is made with broad spectrum hemp extract rather than full spectrum hemp extract. Broad spectrum hemp extract is exactly like full spectrum, only the THC has been carefully isolated and removed from the concentrate that results from the extraction process that we use. This means that you’re giving your body every single compound found in the hemp plant except for THC.
Now, there are reasons for avoiding THC, and most of them are personal, which we totally understand. We aren’t saying that the THC-free formula won’t give you the desired results. If that were the case, we’d have no reason to produce it in the first place.
Every compound in hemp can offer something unique that can be quite useful when applied topically. CBD all on its own may help provide relief, while the terpenes and flavonoids also contain powerful properties that can add to the effectiveness of the product. Therefore, you won’t be at a major disadvantage by avoiding THC when choosing your ideal topical balm formula.
However, this THC-free version will not give you the entourage effect. If that’s what you desire, then the balm that contains THC is the way to go.
