CBD and cannabis skin products are generally safe to apply liberally to the skin and are not likely to cause side effects.
Even if the product contains THC, psychoactivity is not likely with this delivery method.
However, it is very important that you test a small amount on your skin first before applying liberally to the affected area.
Allergic reactions have occurred and you need to test yourself to see if you are allergic to whatever product you are using.
It’s also not recommended to use CBD skin products that contain alcohol as this could make some skin conditions worse.
If you do have an allergic reaction, it may not necessarily be an allergic reaction to CBD or one of the cannabinoids.
Instead, you may be having an allergic response to an additive in the product you are using.
Check product labels and try to find products that only contain CBD, cannabinoids, and the base that acts as the carrier – i.e. coconut oil or hempseed oil.
