What are the benefits of CBD salves and lotions?
Salves and Lotions containing CBD are effective in managing pain.
Cannabis has been used for centuries in human medicine for both recreational and medicinal purposes. In human medicine, cannabis-based extracts have been used for the treatment of spasticity, central pain, lower urinary tract symptoms in multiple sclerosis, sleep disturbances, peripheral neuropathic pain, brachial plexus avulsion symptoms, nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy, loss of appetite, rheumatoid arthritis, intractable cancer pain, spinal cord injuries, Tourette’s syndrome, psychoses, epilepsy, glaucoma, Parkinson’s disease, and dystonia (1–4). https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6038832/
