Top 3 Things You Need to Know About Using a CBD Roll On

One of the most convenient ways to alleviate pain symptoms is with a pocket sized CBD roll on! These products are designed to be applied to areas of your skin that are painful or inflamed, and they work much in the same way as a roll on antiperspirant. It comprises a small tube of liquid containing CBD and other ingredients, and is topped with a roller ball that releases the liquid when rubbed onto the skin. Here are the top 3 things you need to know about using a CBD roll on:

1. Benefits Over Using Cream

While many people like to use CBD cream, it can also get quite messy and may not be ideal if you need instant relief from your symptoms on the go! On the other hand, you can simply reach in your purse or pocket for your CBD roll on whenever you need it and use it without getting cream all over your fingers. This eliminates the need for washing your hands after each application and is the perfect solution for busy people who don’t have time to apply CBD cream every time they need relief! Note that massaging CBD cream into your ailing joints or muscles is still more effective, so it may be worth keeping a cream to use at home and having a roll on ready for when you are on the run!

2. Using the Proper Amount

When using your roll on for the first time, start with the minimum effective dose by applying just a small amount and then gradually increase it over time. If you don’t apply enough of the product, it is unlikely to be effective so you want to find the right dosage that works for you. Keep in mind that CBD itself should not cause any side effects, but there are some other ingredients in topical preparations that can sometimes cause skin irritation. This is especially true to those with extra sensitive skin or eczema, so always try testing on a small patch of skin first! Also, since you will be using your roll on repeatedly, keep it clean by washing the area of application before each use. 

3. Applying a CBD Roll On

The great thing about using a roll on is that it is very easy and fairly self-explanatory! You simply just roll the ball over the affected area and wait for the effects to take over. Pay close attention to apply it to the correct area, as the source of the pain may actually be different from where you feel it. As an example, a headache can be caused from tension in the neck and shoulders, while sciatica is typically caused by a problem in your lower back. If you can identify where your pain is coming from and apply your CBD to that area, it will likely be more effective.
