CBD Salve: How to Use a Salve Effectively
Taking CBD is simple – unless you’ve never done it before. Before you start, you have to decide what kind of method is best for you. Tinctures are certainly not the only thing on the market. In fact, consumers are facing an increasingly massive array of products to choose from. One of the more popular options as of late is CBD topicals. Or, more specifically, CBD salves.
CBD topical salves can be expensive. This is because they usually contain more ingredients (like pressed essential oils) than CBD tinctures. The expense means that, when you buy one, you don’t want to waste it. It’s best to use CBD salves as efficiently as possible to ensure that you get the most bang for your buck.
Today, we discuss how to do just that. First, though, let’s discuss what a CBD salve is.
What Is a CBD Salve?
CBD skincare is incredibly popular and features moisturizers, lotions, and other products that have been infused with cannabidiol. A CBD salve is just another example of these topicals.
However, CBD salves are made for more specific uses and applications. Salves are loosely defined as topicals used to promote healing of the skin or as protection. Typically, CBD salves are made using coconut oil and beeswax. The texture is unique, taking on a stiff sort of consistency thanks to the beeswax.
In terms of the best CBD salves, the most crucial ingredient is (obviously) cannabidiol. There may be several other beneficial ingredients, including essential oils, terpenes, and natural hydrating components.
One of the draws of CBD salves is that they are easy to use. You simply apply a small amount of salve to a desired area of the skin, massage it in, and you’re done! Note, however, that it can be hard to measure an exact amount without trial and error. In other words, it can take a little time to figure out the best dose for a CBD salve.
Why Use a CBD Salve?
Every method of taking CBD has its advantages and disadvantages. Tinctures work quickly, for example, but they often taste bad. So, why choose a CBD salve over any other method?
In case you didn’t know already, CBD is used as a way to support general health. It does this by interacting with the endocannabinoid system, or ECS. This system has receptors throughout the body, including in most of our organs. It also has a strong prevalence in the brain and central nervous system. And, of course, the skin is loaded with ECS receptors.
When you take CBD orally, such as through a tincture or edible, it can reach receptors throughout the body. This is great if you are looking to improve your overall health by using a daily supplement. However, some people are looking more specifically to improve the health of their skin.
Some research suggests that CBD has anti-inflammatory and neuroprotectant properties. Not only would this make CBD useful for skin conditions like rosacea, but for combating swelling and aches in fitness-related injuries too. Of course, there is still much to learn about CBD before we understand its full potential.
Choosing a High-Quality CBD Salve
As CBD salves can be costly, knowing the quality of a product before you buy is essential. This is true for any topical product. So, take a look at our top three questions to ask yourself before committing to a CBD topical.
What Type of CBD Does It Contain?
If using a CBD topical for its beneficial skin properties, pay specific attention to the ingredients that are in the product.
Instead of reaching receptors throughout the whole body, CBD salves work to target a localized area. In addition to the cannabidiol, you may also want a full-spectrum of hemp’s cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. Many CBD users believe that the blend of natural compounds found in hemp is more beneficial when used together. This idea is known as the “entourage effect”, and it’s why we, at Premium Jane, manufacture our salves with a full-spectrum extract.
Are There Additional Ingredients?
It’s also important to consider additional ingredients in a CBD salve. Choosing gentle and natural compounds is essential, especially if you have sensitive skin. Equally, added ingredients ought to provide a benefit themselves.
Like our 1500mg Cocoa Butter Salve, premium CBD salves should contain a myriad of beneficial ingredients such as hydrating oils, omegas, and even soy proteins. These compounds not only make the skin feel good on application but can leave a lasting impact.
Does It Fit into Your Daily Routine?
When it comes to using new beauty and wellness products, convenience is key. One of the best ways to remember to use your CBD topical is by replacing it with a product you already use. For example, at Premium Jane, we craft CBD skincare products such as:
- Facial Day Cream
- Facial Night Cream
- Creamy Facial Cleanser
These products are designed to fit into an already-established skincare routine seamlessly. This means you won’t forget to use your daily CBD, and it won’t feel like a chore.
Should I Be Using a CBD Salve?
CBD salves can be an excellent administration method for people wanting to experience the benefits of cannabidiol. They can be particularly useful for those looking to increase skin health and balance.
If you are looking for a CBD supplement to use daily for general wellbeing, you may be better off with a good oral tincture. With these, cannabinoid receptors in the whole body will benefit from CBD. Topicals are more useful for specific places on the skin, so proceed accordingly.
Additionally, you will find many other topical products on the market. Some people might prefer a hydrating CBD cream just before bed, while others may need a cooling salve after an intensive gym session.
If you are looking for a no-hassle topical CBD product, a salve could be a good fit for you. Just make sure to buy your CBD salve from a reputable seller, and look out for one with verified lab reports and high-quality ingredients.
Organic CBD Salve
Organic Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax), Organics Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Extract, Organic Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Organic Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil.

While a lot of Joy Organics customers are looking for a CBD product they can ingest, some are looking to introduce CBD into their lives in other ways. Perhaps you are looking for additional moisture for your skin, or maybe for some muscle support. Our CBD Salve is the ideal choice for those who want to experience the benefits of CBD through topical application.
Your skin is the largest organ of your body, meaning that it provides an excellent substrate for quick absorption and fast effects. Our CBD Salve is effective as soon as the product is absorbed into the skin. Unlike oils, which have to be metabolized inside the body, salves can be applied locally for pinpointed accuracy.

WE HAVE ANSWERS
+ What is CBD Salve?

+ What is in Joy Organics’ CBD Salve?
Joy Organics’ CBD Salve is made with five simple ingredients that are certified organic by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). We use broad spectrum phytocannabinoid-rich hemp extract to create our premium salve. This all-natural formula is rounded out with organic medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) oil, beeswax, lavender essential oil, and eucalyptus essential oil for hydration and skin-protective benefits.
+ How to Use CBD Salve?
A CBD salve is an easy way to integrate organic CBD into your routine. Just swipe your fingertip into the salve and apply directly and liberally to your skin.
+ How Do I Apply CBD Salve?
Apply the salve directly to your skin by rubbing it into the affected area in a circular, massage-like motion until absorbed.
+ When Is the Best Time to Use CBD Salve?
Joy Organics’ CBD salve cream is naturally scented with organic eucalyptus and lavender essential oils, making it appropriate to use at any time. For moisture retention, apply to the skin after a shower. Those who use CBD salves for joint and muscle support should apply as needed or after a strenuous workout for recovery.
+ How Does CBD Salve work?
Our skin cells have cannabinoid receptors that ensure homeostasis (balance) along the skin barrier. CBD salves give you direct access to these receptors, and phytocannabinoids in the topical interact with cannabinoid receptors to help calm these excited receptors. This reaction promotes homeostasis through the endocannabinoid system, which can change negative communications along the skin barrier.
+ How Will a CBD Salve Make Me Feel?
CBD salves are an excellent way to maintain healthy skin, muscles, and joints. These organic topicals can help you find relief on the skin’s surface and beneath. Depending on the ingredients, you may experience warming or cooling sensations. For instance, eucalyptus in Joy Organics’ CBD Salves may cause a slight cooling experience that promotes comfort and wellness.
+ How Long Does It Take a CBD Salve to Work?
The speed of CBD salve’s effects vary depending on the user’s genetics, tolerance to CBD, and the types of benefits they’re looking for. When you apply a CBD salve, its ingredients must penetrate the skin and get absorbed by your cells. Experiencing the benefits of a CBD salve takes anywhere from a couple of minutes to a couple of hours.
+ What Is the Difference Between Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and CBD Isolate Salves?
CBD salves made with isolates can provide skin health benefits. However, CBD works better in the company of other phytocannabinoids because it promotes an entourage effect. Full spectrum CBD salves contain 0.3% THC or less. Meanwhile, broad spectrum salves contain 0.0% THC. You can experience the entourage effect with both broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD products. THC content is a matter of preference.
+ Will a CBD Salve Make Me High?
Under the 2018 Farm Bill, all hemp-based products must contain 0.3% THC or less. This minimal amount shouldn’t cause mind-altering effects. In states where medical and recreational marijuana is legal, CBD salves might contain high THC counts. Be sure to read the labels. If you are concerned about THC content, opt for a broad spectrum CBD salve that contains no detectable (0.0%) THC.
+ Why Use an Organic CBD Salve?
When it comes to any health product, organic is simply a healthier option both for the environment and for your body. Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and just as it absorbs the nourishing ingredients in our Salve, it can also absorb contaminants. That’s why we use completely organic ingredients in our salves and back up all of our formulas with rigorous third-party testing.
+ What Is the Difference Between CBD Salve and Other CBD Topicals?
CBD salves have a slightly thicker, stickier texture than CBD creams or lotions. They are ideal for providing targeted support right where you need it most. In contrast, a cream is typically used to glide over larger areas of the skin.
+ How Much CBD Oil in Salve?
Most CBD salves denote their phytocannabinoid content by telling you how much CBD is contained in the jar. Joy Organics’ CBD Salve comes in two sizes and strengths. Our 1,000mg ointment comes in a 2-ounce jar, and our 500mg salve is available in a 1-ounce size.
+ How Much CBD Salve Should I Apply
Apply as much CBD salve as needed. We recommend testing the CBD salve in a small, inconspicuous area to see how your skin reacts to the product before applying it to skin that comes into contact with direct sunlight. From there, you can tailor your regimen to meet your needs.
+ How Often Should I Apply a CBD Salve?
Once you know your skin can tolerate the salve, use it as needed. For preventative care, apply in the morning and after showers. Before exercising, consider applying to areas that might need some extra support. Post-workout, use a CBD salve to promote recovery.
+ Why Can You Buy a CBD Salve Without Medical Prescription?
CBD salves derived from hemp are federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill. Since hemp doesn’t cause psychoactive effects, these topicals are readily available without the need for a prescription. You can purchase Joy Organics’ premium organic CBD Salve through our website, or find a retailer near you that carries our products on our store locator.
