If you suffer from muscle aches, menstrual cramps, arthritis, or even headaches, you may want to consider using CBD topically. Even when applied to the surface of the skin, it can have powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. One of the most convenient and least messy ways to use topical CBD is to buy a roll-on product. To use such a product, you basically roll the applicator ball over the painful area. However, a few more tips and details can be helpful as you apply roll-on CBD.
Store the roller upright.
Roller applicators are made to allow a little bit of the CBD product through around the ball. Because of this design, if you store the roller applicator with the ball side down, it may leak a little and make a mess. So, it's best to store your roller applicator with the ball side facing up. It's okay if it ends up sideways for a little while in your purse or bag, but don't store it sideways for any sustained period of time.
Consider letting the area dry between rolls.
Once the area you are applying the CBD solution to is moist, you won't be able to apply much more. So, if you need more relief than you can get from basically one pass over the area with the roller applicator, you should let the area dry between passes. This only takes a few seconds. Roll over the area, wait for it to dry, and then roll over it again. For the most serious arthritis pain and for bad headaches, you may need to repeat this process a couple of times.
Make sure your skin is clean first.
When you touch the applicator ball to your skin, it is depositing CBD, but it can also pick up any oils or impurities that are on the surface of your skin and carry them back into the tube of CBD. To keep too much of this from happening, make sure your skin is clean before you apply the CBD product. If you use your CBD roller on the go a lot, you may want to also carry some cleaning wipes for your skin with you. Give your skin a wipe and let it dry before you roll on the CBD.
With the tips above, you will have better luck using roll-on CBD effectively. For more detailed instructions, check the label or contact the manufacturer. For more information, contact a local supplier, like CannaBe Well Inc.
