Comparing CBD Topicals: Lotion vs. Salve

By Star Barnes August 04, 2020

Have you been considering trying out a CBD topical, but aren’t sure where to begin? The world of CBD has so many options, especially when it comes to topicals. Discerning what topical is best for yourself as an individual may be difficult due to all the options. I’ve been using many of the topicals here at Discover CBD for quite some time and have gathered a bit of insight on them. While I love them all, I’ve discovered which ones work best for me and why. 

Many people will use a CBD topical on an area in which they have pain, be it a painful shoulder, some sore muscles, or, in rare cases, nerve pain. My fiancé was in a car accident several years ago and has had some sciatic nerve issues ever since. When I introduced him to CBD topicals he was skeptical, but in his experience it took the edge off of his deep shooting pain. That being said, not everyone responds to CBD topicals the same way, and many people are using it strictly for surface pains and/or skin conditions. Quite a few people have reported positive effects on their eczema and sunburns after applying a CBD topical. The diverse applications for topicals make them quite popular. 

The Active CBD Oil salve is my favorite topical I’ve tried so far. This particular one is a popular choice for many people with sensitive skin due to its short and natural ingredients list. The salve contains only seven ingredients: organic olive oil, candelilla wax, broad spectrum hemp-derived CBD, vitamin E oil, organic rosemary oil, calendula extract, and arnica extract. There are also two different strengths: 150mg in a 2oz container (75mg/oz) and 1100mg in a 4oz container (275mg/oz). I prefer using the 1100mg container, as I usually use the salve for joint pain due to the heftier CBD concentration. 


While the salve is my go to, the Active CBD Oil lotion is also a great topical. The lotion is a popular option for people who prefer covering a larger area of skin with ease. I tend to use it when I have a large area in pain, such as my whole back as opposed to just my shoulder. Each lotion is 8oz with 1100mg of CBD isolate (137.5mg/oz), which makes it a nice middle ground between each salve strength. The lotion also comes in two scents: menthol and citrus lavender. I personally prefer the menthol scent, as it has a cooling sensation when applied on the skin, however the citrus lavender is very relaxing


CBD topicals have been an amazing experience for me. I’ve found so much relief and am happy I’ve had the opportunity to try so many different kinds of topicals to find out what really works best for me.
