CBD works with the endocannabinoid system, a natural system in our bodies that has natural levels of cannabidiol that helps it run properly with receptors that act in the central nervous system to send alerts to the brain. The two neurotransmitters in the body that are keys to circulation in the body are the anandamide and 2- arachidonolyglycerol. Like the phytocannabinoids in plants, they are made from lipids which are fats and oils.

Anandamide is involved with memory and appetite and has even been identified as the source for the boost or high after exercising intensely.

2-Arachidonoylglycerol is said to help with our emotions, protect us from seizures, and help with cardiovascular health.

The cannabinoid receptors act as guards sitting on a cell waiting for specific neurotransmitters to bind to them. The receptors collect messages and this is how cells can react with CBD. We have these guards throughout our bodies different cells are sensitive to different types of endocannabinoids. CB1 receptors allow us to keep a healthy functioning brain and are the most common receptors in our nervous system.  When the CBD interacts with the receptors it can allow the brain to trigger a message to other receptors allowing for pain management.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD oil can be extracted from hemp and has a very small amount of THC compared to being extracted from Marijuana which has high concentrations of THC. There are many ways to extract oil from hemp but there are some that are better for getting pure forms of CBD oil. CBD oil can be used under the tongue by using a dropper and dropping 2 or 3 drops. It is then absorbed in mucous membranes and directly enters the bloodstream without having to be digested.

What Is CBD Cream?

CBD cream is a topical format made from CBD. The cream is produced using extracted oils from hemp that is infused into a topical base. Much like CBD oil CBD creams interact with the CB2 receptors of the ECS which can provide pain relief directly to where the cream was placed without the need of digesting and distributing throughout the body.

CBD creams are not at thick and not as potent as some other forms of topical like ointments and salves. The cream is a looser consistency as well as water-based. The cream is distributed directly to where the pain is at by rubbing it into the skin.

CBD Topical Lotions

A big complaint with CBD topical lotions is that a lot of the actual CBD may be wasted or rub off on clothing. Some people don’t like the topical lotions due to it leaving skin slick or oily feeling.

CBD Topical Salves

CBD topical salves usually come in a stick for easy application, it wastes less because the stick allows you to only apply it to areas that need the salve. The base of the salve is usually beeswax which allows for it to stay in place and allows the body to have maximum absorption.


No matter what choice you decide on the NanocraftCBD Website, you can use topical ointments that are made with quality products to help for all sorts of muscle aches, body aches, and other forms of pain, as well as relaxing the muscles. By using topical creams, salves, lotions, or sticks, you can make sure that you get feeling better quickly.
