Among all CBD topical products, CBD Serum is one of the most powerful products. Although CBD serum isn’t as well-known as other topicals such as CBD cream, CBD Lotion, a recent surge of interest in CBD facial serum has thrust this CBD topical into the public spotlight. So, what is CBD serum?
A serum is usually the second step in the basic 3-step skincare routine. For example, you use a cleanser to wash your face. Before applying a lotion or some other type of moisturizer to wrap up the routine, you’d apply facial serum to enable your skin to lock in the skincare nutrients faster and more efficiently.
A serum, by definition, comes with a formula consisting of smaller molecules that seep through layers of skin. This helps to deliver a high concentration of active ingredients directly to the deep tissue, where causes of skin problems typically lie. This consistency makes serum one of the most powerful products to use, as it actively carries out the benefits of the active ingredients on the overall skin. Whether it’s anti-aging or pain relief, a serum gets the job done.
A CBD serum, as its name implies, uses CBD as its major active ingredient and most likely adds some extra ingredients for extra health or cosmetic benefits. Take CBD Daily CBD Serum as an example, the compact 0.67oz size bottle packs in 60mg all-natural hemp-derived high-potency CBD oils. It is also enriched by a unique blend of natural essential oils such as peppermint oil, hemp seed oil, and avocado oil.
What CBD Serum can do, varies from brand to brand because each brand formulates its CBD serum differently. It is true that all brands share one dominant active ingredient: CBD. Short for Cannabidiol, CBD is a natural chemical compound commonly found in the Hemp plant and the Marijuana plant. It is believed to have multiple potential health benefits including pain relief, anxiety relief, and improving insomnia. In 2018, FDA approved a drug that contains CBD as an assistant solution to treat seizures.
There are 2 types of CBD serums out there. The first is CBD face serum, a form of skincare product that is gaining attraction and popularity within the cosmetic space. It is considered an alternative way of applying raw CBD oil to your face. CBD face serum is believed to increase the skin glow and improve overall skin health.
The second type of CBD serum is CBD topical serum. Our CBD Daily CBD Serums (Original and Triple Strength, Mint and Lavender scent) fall into this category. Due to the peppermint oil found in the formula, CBD Daily’s CBD Serums are not recommended to be applied directly to one’s face. However, the serum does wonder when applied directly to joints, muscles, back, neck, basically anywhere that causes discomforts. Once applied, an immediate intense soothing relief will reach the deepest tissue of your muscle and relaxes the tension instantly. We especially recommend you use it in areas that are hard to reach. This rich, fast-absorbing, and non-greasy formula makes it perfect for layering with other CBD products, such as CBD Spray, for an even more soothing sensation.
Based on the other ingredients incorporated in the CBD serum, each serum can carry additional health benefits. For example, our CBD serum brings excellent nourishing moisturization to the skin due to the essential oils rich in fatty acids and Vitamin E, for example, Hemp Seed Oil and Avocado Oil. At the same time, peppermint oil acts as a muscle relaxant, providing further refreshment and relief to troubled areas. For veteran CBD users, you could easily step up the effect by switching up to our triple strength CBD serums. A triple strength CBD serum contains 180 mg CBD in the same 0.67oz bottle, 3 times more intensive than its original counterpart.
