How to select the right CBD hand cream

Updated on October 29, 2020

After its rapid popularity increase, CBD has continuously shown both researchers and users a multitude of benefits across multiple application areas in the last few years. But what is CBD? 

Understanding CBD 

CBD (cannabidiol) is the active compound found in marijuana, hemp-based products. This is not to be confused with THC, which is responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana, since CBD doesn’t produce any ‘high.’

It’s believed that the compound is a major neuroactive and anti-inflammatory, mostly because it seems to stimulate the growth of new neurons and decrease the number of neurons dying in the brain.

How CBD Benefits Your Body

One of the most popular forms of the CBD substance comes in the form of body creams. CBD has shown at times to be beneficial to the skin in numerous ways because of its anti-inflammatory properties. This means that when you apply a product like this on the skin, you can reduce inflammation. Furthermore, the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD may even help prevent future inflammation from occurring.

It’s important to note that CBD isn’t an all-around remedy for everything, but there’s some anecdotal evidence suggesting that it may have noteworthy benefits on a number of things.

Finding The Right CBD Hand Cream

Finding the best CBD hand cream for your skin type, as well as for your unique needs, can be a time-consuming task. That being said, here are some guidelines to help in your quest for the right cream for your skin:

Has The Right Amount of CBD 

Different products are packed with different ingredients, and no CBD hand cream comes with just CBD in it. All products you find will be paired with some different agents to go along with the CBD, with the purpose of enhancing the product’s benefits to your skin.

It’s important to read over these and ensure that there’s nothing in the product that could potentially be irritable to your skin or have adverse effects due to your skin type. 

Different types of products come with different amounts of each substance. For example, CBD foot cream for neuropathy will consist of a different formula than that of a hand cream, and a hand cream differing from something that was designed for a facial wash. It’s important to take this into account and make sure that the hand cream you’re choosing has the right amount of each ingredient for you. 

Pick a product that contains the right amount of THC, CBD, and accompanying ingredients for your needs. There’s no right answer to what works for you, and you should take the time to carefully compare alternatives and their ingredients before making the decision on which product gives you the best value for your money.

The Right Manufacturer

Different manufactures will have different values and different manufacturing processes. Some can be organic and some can be harmful. Thus, different companies will produce their products in different ways.

It’s important to consider the potential differences, and get a reading on the value of the companies you’re considering purchasing your CBD hand cream from. Going for a company with a holistic approach and has a longstanding positive reputation in the industry is your overall safest bet. 

Consider Your Skin Type

You’ll want to choose a product that suits your unique skin type. Some may have dry skin, oily skin, a skin disorder, or just desire to improve the overall health of their skin. Take into account your situation and apply it to the goal you want to achieve with your product will help you narrow down your selection. 

If you’ve never used CBD for your skincare before, you should make sure you read up and learn everything you need to know about how this oil works and apply that information to your skin type, too. 

Many people are unaware of the different things that it can do for their skin, which will depend on the different ingredients that accompany CBD.  

Read Reviews

You should look up reviews on the internet as well so that you know what to expect. It’s important that you only use a product that contains the highest quality of oils. 

There are plenty of resources online to aid you in this research process, and a bountiful supply of CBD brands to choose from.


Your overall takeaway should be rather simple and can be summarized in a few steps. Do your research, compare alternatives, and carefully read the ingredients. Using this will ensure that you choose the best CBD hand cream for your skin.
