In recent years, CBD has emerged as a versatile wellness option, and one of its most popular applications is in topical balms. CBD balms, also known as salves or creams, offer targeted relief for a range of issues, from muscle soreness to joint discomfort. However, with a plethora of options flooding the market, choosing the right CBD balm can be overwhelming. This ultimate guide by Zakah Life® aims to simplify the process, providing you with safety tips and essential considerations for selecting the perfect CBD topical balm.

Understanding CBD Balm: What Sets It Apart?

What is CBD Balm?

CBD balm is a topical product infused with cannabidiol (CBD) extracted from the hemp plant. Unlike CBD oils or edibles, balms are designed for external use and are often blended with other natural ingredients to enhance their therapeutic effects. 

What is the best type?

In the world of CBD, you will find that most companies use CBD Isolate. CBD Isolate is 99% extracted with harmful chemicals and during the process, all the other Cannabinoids are purged (separated) from CBD, leaving CBD by itself. The most effective CBD balms will have a Full Spectrum profile, meaning all of the original Cannabinoids, phytonutrients, and terpenes are left just the way nature intended, making this the most effective therapeutic use. At Zakah Life®, not only do we only believe in Full Spectrum, but our extraction process uses ZERO chemicals, making our CBD balm the safest application possible. 

CBD Balm Uses

Targeted Relief: CBD balms are renowned for their localized relief. Whether it's muscle soreness, joint discomfort, or specific areas of pain, these balms can be applied directly to the affected area, allowing for concentrated relief.

Skin Care: Beyond pain relief, CBD balms are known for their potential skin benefits. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of CBD may contribute to healthier skin, making these balms a two-in-one solution.

Key Considerations When Choosing a CBD Balm

1. Source of CBD

Opt for balms that use high-quality, organically-grown hemp. CBD sourced from reputable farms ensures a cleaner and more potent product.

2. Third-Party Lab Testing

A trustworthy CBD balm should undergo third-party lab testing to confirm its potency, purity, and safety. This information is often available on the product's label or the company's website.

3. CBD Concentration

Different balms contain varying concentrations of CBD. Consider your needs and the severity of your discomfort when choosing a product with an appropriate CBD concentration. 

4. Full-Spectrum vs. Isolate

As mentioned above, decide whether you prefer a full-spectrum CBD balm (containing all cannabinoids, phytonutrients, and terpenes) or a CBD isolate (pure CBD that has been extracted with harmful chemicals).

Other types of CBD Topicals on the market

1. CBD Muscle Balm

This could be any type of balm, salve, or lotion that is marketed specifically for pain. In reality, CBD Topicals activate the body's natural ability to produce Cannabinoids, thus, relieving pain and inflammation. The efficacy lies in the quality of the ingredients and whether or not the CBD is isolated or Full Spectrum.

2. CBD Balm Stick

A CBD Balm Stick is usually found in gas stations. These products are commonly made without any government oversight and contain not only harmful ingredients but in most cases, what's inside does not match what they put on the label. At Zakah Life®, we have spent years 3rd party lab testing these very products, so we know!

3. CBD Muscle and Joint Balm

Again, this would be a marketing effort using some type of CBD Topical.

4. CBD Recovery Balm

A recovery CBD balm is simply another CBD Topical, using specific words. 

5. CBD Pain Relief Balm

A high-quality CBD Topical is going to relieve pain. When seeking the product that is right for you, remember our advice; Quality, lab testing, and full-spectrum.
