CBD Cream or ‘Tropical as it is known as’ comes in many different forms from gels, lotions, balms and many more and they are great for sore muscles, joints, and ligaments which can provide a more localised pain relief.
When tropical CBD is applied directly to the skin in a balm or cream it is able to absorb through the skin and in turns combine with the cannabinoid receptors near the location of your ailment.

For the most part CBD has been known to be found in hops plants as well, it is best known for its abundance in hemp and cannabis plants, and as one of the two main active compounds in the plant alongside THC.
CBD and THC are the two main ingredients that are found in the cannabis plant, however they are not exactly the same thing. They are both cannabinoids but that is where the similarity ends.
THC which stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol is the marijuana plant’s primary component for causing psychoactive effects and the difference between CBD and THC is that THC is the chemical that has a psychoactive effect, giving that ‘high’ sought by casual cannabis or marijuana users. CBD on the other hand is not psychoactive and non-toxic, so you can take it without experiencing the side effects associated with THC.

You may have heard the terms full-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate, so what do they mean? Both are extracts from the cannabis plant. But even though they come from the same plant, there are still differences.
Full Spectrum CBD contains small amounts of THC usually around 0.2% as well as other flavourings and terpenes which you can read about further down. These can be beneficial and provide more of a flavour to the product.
The main difference in isolate is that it does not contain THC which some people don’t like the idea of this in their products.
CBD is used by people all over the globe for a variety of conditions such as anxiety, epilepsy, muscle pain and fibromyalgia. The field of CBD research is fast-moving, but it already contains reams of data proving the effects of CBD.
In addition to others, these terpenes are present in cannabis and give marijuana strains their unique flavour and scent.
In addition to their aesthetic appeal and like the other compounds that make cannabis such a fascinating plant, terpenes have a host of therapeutic properties. For example, pinene is known to assuage symptoms of asthma, pain, inflammation, oxidation damage, and bacterial infection. Limonene is known for its anti-fungal, anti-depressant, anxiolytic, and immune stimulating properties. Linalool doesn’t simply smell nice; it is an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant, and immune-modulating terpene.
So on their own, terpenes are pretty awesome. But the interactions between terpenes, the cannabinoids present in cannabis, and our endocannabinoidsystems can actually amplify the medicinal qualities of cannabis. In a 2011 study, Dr. Ethan Russo found that the relationship between those compounds “could produce synergy with respect to treatment of pain, inflammation, depression, anxiety, addiction, epilepsy, cancer, and fungal and bacterial infections.” For example, the combination of linalool, limonene, pinene, and the cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD) may prove to be an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. Linalool decreases stress, limonene enhances mood, pinene improves alertness, and CBD basically improves…everything. Together, those compounds are a medical force to be reckoned with.
Terpenes, unlike cannabinoids, are responsible for the aroma of cannabis. The FDA and other agencies have generally recognized terpenes as “safe.” Terpenes act on receptors and neurotransmitters; they are prone to combine with or dissolve in lipids or fats; they act as serotonin uptake inhibitors (similar to antidepressants like Prozac); they enhance norepinephrine activity (similar to tricyclic antidepressants like Elavil); they increase dopamine activity; and they augment GABA (the “downer” neurotransmitter that counters glutamate, the “upper”).
