How to Tell if Topicals Are Really Working


CBD-infused topicals have taken over the CBD market and it’s easy to fall in love with one of these products. If you have tried them before, but not the results you want, then you might be wondering how to tell if they are working.

According to the US Insider Consumer Report 2019, 58.1% of CBD users use CBD for pain and discomfort. The Arthritis Foundation’s 2019 report found that 79% of patients surveyed had either considered CBD or used it. 55% of CBD-using patients used a topical treatment to their joints.

CBD topicals are a great option if you want CBD to relieve pain. Because they are topical products, they don’t have to be absorbed into your bloodstream. They work on the skin’s surface. CBD topicals are formulated with many beneficial natural ingredients, which help to soothe the skin and joints faster than oral supplements. They are, however, of different quality and provide different effects.

It’s thrilling to add a new product to your self-care regimen. But, you may be wondering if the topicals you have applied to your skin are actually working or if it’s just a placebo effect. This article will help you determine if topicals are right for you.

Factors that Influence the Efficacy Of CBD Topicals

The Quality of a Product

All CBD products, even topicals, have different quality. Even though CBD has been proven to be effective for many people, it is possible that you will not experience the same results if your CBD product does not meet your expectations. There are many unreliable CBD brands that make unproven claims about CBD products in the CBD market.

In 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), conducted a preliminary study and found that many CBD products contained different CBD levels than claimed. CBD dosage is a key factor in determining whether CBD products are effective for topical and oral use.

The label may not indicate how much CBD the product contains. Low-quality products can contain toxic ingredients such as pesticides or heavy metals. Before you buy CBD topicals, always check for third-party lab results. The quality and purity of a product can be confirmed by testing.


Another factor that can impact the effectiveness of a product is its CBD content. There is no one CBD level that will work for everyone. However, there are many CBD potencies available to help you determine which CBD dose works best for your needs.

Type of product

There are many options available for CBD topicals. Some may be suitable for your joints and muscles, but others can be used for your skin, like CBD moisturizers, or products that promote relaxation, such as CBD bath bombs. CBD roll-ons and CBD salves are the best CBD topicals to relieve discomfort.

How do I know if topicals are working?

The immediate effects are felt

Additional ingredients in CBD topicals such as menthol and eucalyptus can provide immediate relief for your skin even before CBD penetrates it.

The Difference You Feel

It is hard not to notice the difference in your discomfort when you suddenly feel relief. If you don’t experience any noticeable results from CBD topicals it could be that they aren’t working for you or the product isn’t the best.

What to do if topicals don’t work

The product won’t be absorbed by your skin.

Topical CBD interacts with ECS receptors beneath the skin. If CBD is not absorbed into your skin, the interaction will be difficult. Many products are difficult to absorb and therefore less effective. Many products contain beneficial natural ingredients that aid penetration such as menthol or eucalyptus.

There is no difference.

It is possible that the CBD topical product is not working for you if you don’t see any results, either long-term or immediate. You might consider switching to another CBD topical.
