What is CBD Balm?
CBD, a common cannabinoid found in the Cannabis plant, is most often consumed either via smoking or through ingestion (as an oil or tincture) to treat ailments such as pain, inflammation, anxiety, and depression. However, recent research has shown that CBD can have positive effects when applied topically as well. As a result, an array of CBD skincare products have hit the market, the most popular of which being CBD balm.
The use of a CBD balm is an excellent way to locally target areas on the skin; the soothing effect that is typical of CBD products can also be achieved via CBD balm. Additionally, many people use CBD balm on their skin as part of their cosmetic beauty regimen.

Unlike other forms of CBD, CBD balm is an oily substance that is topically applied instead of ingested. Thus, its effects are locally active, and it is not processed by the liver or absorbed into the bloodstream through the lungs. Skin is known to contain both CB1 and CB2 receptors, and it is through this mechanism that it can be topically active.
CBD Balm Usage
CBD oil is by far the most common mode of ingestion amongst users. This method allows individuals to target pain in a more general way, as the substance goes systemic and does not discriminate in its effects. CBD balm, however, can be used in a much more selective manner, typically used to target patches of inflamed skin wrinkles. In recent years, there has been a growing number of people using CBD for acne treatment, with a reportedly high degree of success.CBD Balm Benefits:

What Are The Potential Side-Effects of CBD Balm?
Although extremely rare, those with sensitive skin may experience an allergic reaction to some of the oils used in the formulation. Because CBD balm targets the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain and does not go systemic, some of the rare side effects for oral CBD are not seen. Generally speaking, CBD skincare products are very well tolerated by users.
CBD Balm Tolerance
There is little evidence to indicate that CBD Balm has the potential for tolerance to build over time. In fact, the opposite has been reported, with less CBD required to be used to gain the same level of benefits as previously needed. This is due to the difference in how CBD elicits the effects within the body compared to other pain relievers.
The UK - In 2016, cannabidiol was labeled a medicine that required standard licensing requirements.
Switzerland - It is not subject to the Narcotics Act due to lacking enough THC.
