Worried about taking too much CBD balm?
Afraid that over-using your cream or oil will have a negative effect?
You’ve come to the right place!
Below, we’re going to break down everything you need to know about using CBD balm for joint, muscle, or nerve pain, and how it can help you without putting your body at risk.
By the time you reach the end of this article, you’ll know why there’s really no such thing as “too much CBD balm”.
Why It’s Difficult to Use Too Much CBD Balm
CBD balm is a product made by adding CBD oil from the cannabis plant into an oil- or wax-based substance that is then applied topically to the skin. It’s an almost entirely safe product that you can use without any worries.
Why “almost”? Let’s break it down…
Wax and balm ingredients can cause allergic reactions. If you happen to have skin sensitivities or allergies to the ingredients used—such as coconut oil, beeswax, or menthol—then you may find that you break out in a skin rash as a result of the CBD balm. It’s not the CBD causing the problem, however, but the other ingredients that are added to help nourish your skin and ensure the CBD easily penetrates to your joints.
Some people are sensitive to CBD. While it’s not common, CBD sensitivity does exist. Medical News Today has a lengthy article on marijuana sensitivity and allergies, listing potential side effects like dry coughing, itchy eyes, congestion, nausea, sneezing, a running nose, a sore throat, or watering eyes. For those who use it as a topical product, they may develop skin reactions like rashes, blisters, itchiness, hives, or dry skin. VERY rarely will it trigger anaphylaxis or more serious breathing difficulties, but it has been known to happen. If you’re sensitive or allergic to CBD, you may find that using CBD balm can trigger these reactions.
However, other than these two reasons, there is very little to be concerned about when using CBD balm.
Scientists have yet to identify a dose of CBD that would be toxic and/or lethal to human beings, but it’s exponentially more than is mixed into CBD balm. No deaths have been reported from CBD overdoses, and many CBD oil products have been tested in concentrations as high as 2,000 milligrams in one day with no negative effects. That’s about as much as is contained in an entire BOTTLE of CBD oil, which is significantly more than is mixed into a container of CBD balm.
What this means is that the amount of CBD oil used in CBD balm is utterly safe for daily application. You can use it on your skin a few times per day—as directed on the package—without fear that it will cause negative side effects. Unless, of course, you happen to be allergic or sensitive to CBD oil or one of the ingredients in the balm.
Can Using Too Much CBD Balm Lead to CBD Tolerance?
The greatest concern a lot of people have about regularly using CBD balm is that frequent use can develop a tolerance to it, similar to the way you develop a tolerance to coffee or tea. The more you can tolerate, the more you need to consume or absorb in order to receive the same effects.
The good news is that science has proven that CBD isn’t something the average person develops a tolerance to. This is because of the way it interacts with the endocannabinoid system. In fact, by interacting with the ECS, it can encourage the production of endocannabinoids in the body, which can make you more receptive to certain compounds.
There is anecdotal evidence claiming that over time people do become less sensitive to CBD. This may be the case for certain people, but in general, there is no need to worry about developing a tolerance. Your body will not become less receptive to the CBD just because you’re using it a few times per day.
More likely, the reduced effectiveness of the CBD products have to do with the CBD itself. Lower-quality products use cheaper and less-effective CBD, or mislabel their products with false claims that they are using larger doses than they actually are. That’s why it’s important to make sure that you’re always buying your CBD balm and CBD oil products from a reputable seller!
