CBD Lotion Frequently Asked Questions
CBD lotion is good for the skin because it contains many of the same moisturizing, soothing, and hydrating ingredients that are in standard skincare products.
CBD lotions are applied to the areas of the body that are experiencing discomfort. It may help relieve pain or relax muscles that are aching or sore. It does not, however, have the same calming or relaxing effects you may experience when taking CBD orally.

No. CBD Lotion is not safe for babies since they may be at greater risk for adverse reactions due to the differences in a babies ability to absorb, metabolize and eliminate a substance like CBD out of the body. In addition, many lotions contain ingredients that are found in adult skincare products but not found in baby or infant skincare products.
CBD Lotion rarely causes skin irritation or rashes. It’s possible to be allergic to CBD but it is very rare. If a rash does occur, it is likely caused by one of the other ingredients in the lotion.
Can CBD Lotion Cause Dizziness?
Taken orally, CBD is known to have side effects such as dizziness. Since CBD lotion does not contain THC and is not absorbed into the bloodstream, applying it topically to your skin is unlikely to induce dizziness.
CBD is absorbed in the skin through the pores and then taken up by CBD receptors in the Endocannabinoid system of the skin. The CBD in CBD Lotion does not reach or enter the bloodstream.
CBD lotions are usually scented and do not smell like hemp or marijuana. Unscented lotions may have a stronger odor that smells a little like weed.
