What is CBD Lip Balm?
For first-time cannabis users who truly just want to dip their toe into the vast world of cannabis health and wellness, a great place to start is by using CBD lip balm which offers a microdose of CBD directly through the skin through topical application.
Topical Application of CBD
When CBD is applied directly to the skin, also called topical application, the CBD is able to penetrate into the epidermis. This delivers a non-psychoactive, localized anti-inflammatory response.
CBD used through topical applications comes in many different forms including infused oils, creams, salves, balms, bath salts, and even personal arousal products.
The typical onset for topically applied CBD is 30-60 minutes and has an average duration time of 2-4 hours.
Start With High-Quality Products
A good homemade CBD lip balm should start with the highest quality ingredients for the best end result. To determine what a high-quality CBD product is, be sure to follow my 4-Step REAL Method for Choosing a Safe CBD Product.
In this recipe, I choose the natural combination of coconut oil, shea butter, and beeswax to offer a natural form of sun protection, without all of the harsh chemicals commonly found in sunscreen products.
The final product applies smoothly, can be customized with your favorite essential oils, and will leave your lips feeling soft and moisturized.
