This beloved product is now incredibly mainstream and often the first choice for consumers.
The people who currently use CBD know that it has multiple applications and can be incorporated into a person’s daily life in different ways. Brands have capitalized on this botanical’s versatility by discovering methods to use in their products. CBD has found a home in numerous products due to the increasing amounts of people wanting to take steps to more holistic lifestyles and natural approaches to health and wellness.
Today, you can find CBD in creams, CBD lotions, moisturizers, and salves. With so many products available, CBD can fit into your busy lifestyle easily.
These all-natural products, derived from hemp, have become attractive to curious individuals who want to know more about how CBD could help them live their lives in a more well-rounded and active way.
CBD Growth and Production
CBD Salves, creams, and lotions are best used topically to target areas of discomfort in people who consistently struggle with nagging aches and pains or dry skin prone to red, rough patches. It’s specifically formulated for use anywhere on the body but works excellent on joints like hands and wrists and knees and necks.
For the individual wanting to live their life holistically, Kats Botanicals is the premier choice for these all-natural products. The full-spectrum CBD hemp extract used in all of Kats Botanicals CBD salves is grown using only sustainable, natural farming methods.
Only natural fertilizers are used in the growing process with absolutely no herbicides, pesticides, or chemicals ever involved with the plants while they are growing. The hemp is tended to with care by farmers familiar with proper products’ regulation. It is cultivated in the high altitudes of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains using the sun to encourage steady growth.
Once harvested, CBD is extracted from the hemp plants using a hybrid food-grade ethanol wash and supercritical CO2 method. The ethanol is used both in winterization and again to clarify the oil of contaminants. CO2 is used for the initial extraction to remove plant matter from compounds, and then the oil is winterized. The oil is clarified up to seven times using various processes, resulting in pure and potent CBD.
Using this extraction method ensures the process is safe, but it’s also the most sustainable way to harvest CBD from hemp. It results in a product that is pure and natural, which can then be combined with the user’s carrier oil of choice to build a delivery method that is fast-acting and reliable.

How to Use CBD Salves
Using a CBD Salve is easy. It is best used on sore, stiff joints, or anywhere else you may be suffering from regular muscle fatigue or pain. It can be used on the face to ward away dry patches of skin without having to worry that it may cause breakouts. You can soothe away tense muscles by massaging it into your neck, shoulders, and hips.
When you are ready to apply this product to your skin, it’s good to wash thoroughly, and pat the targeted area dry first. Doing so clears pores of any debris, oils, dirt, or sebum that could inhibit absorption. Once your skin is clean, apply a small amount, and massage into your skin has fully absorbed the salve.
Using CBD salves topically allows you to forgo the consumption and metabolic processes that must occur when you consume CBD in the form of a gummy or oil. Instead, the salve works as soon as it’s absorbed into your skin to relieve discomfort and restore calm.
When to Use CBD Salve
One of the great things about our CBD Salve is that you can use it whenever you need it. You can choose to massage it into your skin at a moment’s notice of a targeted area or create a regular skincare regimen to harness the anti-inflammatory benefits to your advantage.
CBD Salve helps maintain health and flexibility. You can keep the salve in your backpack or purse for on-the-spot use while you’re at the gym, on campus, or working at the office. The jar is small and discreet.
Another great time to use Kats Botanicals CBD Salve is to calm any sore or irritated skin in the morning and evening. Incorporating salves, creams, and lotions into your everyday beauty routine may help keep difficult-to-manage redness to a minimum while also working with all of the terrific ingredients to keep your skin pampered and hydrated.
Use this salve before you put on your makeup in the morning and then again at night after cleansing and cleaning to keep your skin feeling silky smooth.
The Science of CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound that naturally occurs in the cannabis Sativa family of plants and hundreds of other compounds known as cannabinoids. Cannabis Sativa has several strains and varieties, and two of these are industrial hemp and cannabis.
While CBD is distantly related to all the chemicals in the cannabis Sativa family of plants, its best-known family member is tetrahydrocannabinol. It’s important to remember that CBD and THC are related, but CBD does not result in THC’s psychoactive effects.
Hemp contains very high levels of CBD, but only trace amounts of THC. Cannabis, on the other hand, has high levels of THC and minuscule amounts of CBD. Cannabis is not desirable or practical for crafting a high-quality CBD product.
You can use CBD any time of day or night without being concerned about impairment, no matter the product you choose. The United States Food and Drug Administration has regulated all CBD products, stating they must contain less than .3% THC to be legal.
These regulations enable the manufacturing of CBD products that can be both applied topically or ingested. Once ingested or applied topically, the phytocannabinoids in CBD activates a person’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system supports a feeling of peace and calm, enabling you to go about your day with confidence.
Endocannabinoids and their receptors are naturally found all over the human body; connective tissues, glands, the brain, multiple organs, immune cells, and even on the skin. The CB1 and CB2 receptors in each area may interact with CBD to create and regulate a person’s body’s stability. This support is referred to as homeostasis.
Kats Botanicals stands by its combination of science and sustainable growing processes by offering a 30-day Satisfaction Guarantee. If, for any reason, you’re not completely satisfied with the product you order, simply contact us.
The Legality of CBD in Salves
Because of the close relationship between CBD and THC, they often get confused for one another. CBD does not have any psychoactive inducing effects and is not regulated as a controlled substance itself.
If you work in an industry where you are routinely drug tested and cannot contact even trace amounts of THC, CBD isolates a great solution.
CBD isolate is CBD in its purest form, with all the other naturally-occurring compounds found in hemp filtered out. You can add it to a salve to increase CBD concentration in your existing products or use it to make your own CBD salve. Creating DIY products at home with Kats Botanicals CBD Isolate is a great way to ensure you get your daily dose of CBD without worrying about THC.
CBD and Safety
As with any new product, you may wonder about safety. While all-natural ingredients and third-party ingredients are reassuring, you want to know for sure if CBD is safe.
The answer is yes. When used responsibly and purchased from reputable vendors such as Kats Botanicals, you can use CBD every day. If you take medications, consult with your doctor first about introducing CBD into your daily health regimen.
Using a CBD Salve to ease tension is a great way to provide fast, targeted relief to troublesome areas. You can enjoy all the benefits of all-natural ingredients, including pure full-spectrum CBD, in a Kats Botanicals CBD Salve while supporting your journey to overall wellbeing and holistic health. You’ll be happy that you did.
