Fast Topical Relief
The single most requested product in 2018-2019 from the Cannanda community was a topical version of our CB2™ Wellness terpene blend, and so we present our luxurious CB2™ Salve.
Each tin contains a full 2 mL of our multi-award-winning, physician-formulated CB2 terpene blend in a base of organic shea butter, with sweet peppermint essential oil that smells delicious!
While most use CB2™ Salve as an alternative to CBD, many also use it in conjunction with it, using it as a base to add their own CBD. As you may know, CBD is the popular cannabis compound that has significant health benefits but lacks the intoxicating effects of its sister compound, THC. This means you get a number of incredible health benefits without feeling "high," and it delivers these benefits by positively influencing the endocannabinoid system (ECS; the body's master regulator of homeostasis).
By harnessing the power of terpenes in this precisely formulated blend, we can optimize the function of the ECS through the activation of one of its main receptors, a receptor called cannabinoid receptor type 2 (CB2).
However, if you're already CBD user, the benefits could be even greater! There is a perfect synergy between Cannanda's CB2 and CBD products (read more below).
Activating the CB2 Receptor
CB2 is one of the two main receptors of the ECS. There are numerous benefits to activating this receptor without activating the CB1 receptor (the receptor THC activates, and is responsible for the "high" associated with cannabis). Look in the Supported by Science link for a small list of studies illustrating the benefits of CB2 activation.
Enhance your CBD Experience™
As mentioned, CB2™ can greatly enhance the benefits you already receive from CBD products. Here's how:
- Activating CB2 receptors is not how CBD is thought to work. This is because CBD only has a very weak ability to bind to CB2 receptors.
- Newer studies suggest CBD may influence cannabinoid receptor shape and/or inhibit the proteins that remove our endocannabinoids. This means our own endocannabinoids can then activate CB2 receptors, and could be how we get the benefits from CBD products.
- However, if we can supply the body with external sources of compounds that directly activate CB2 receptors (such as those found in our CB2™ blends, we can amplify those benefits. It's actually the perfect combination!
Organic shea butter, Cannanda's proprietary CB2™ terpene blend (100% natural terpenes extracted from botanical sources), organic peppermint essential oil, organic carnauba wax.
Massage into skin as needed for local relief. For external use only. Keep away from mucous membranes. For higher potency, add drops of CB2™ Wellness terpene blend as you massage the salve into your skin.
How to mix with CBD: With cap on tightly, place entire tin in a cup of hot water for 5-10 minutes (not boiling water, hot water from your tap is sufficient). Carefully remove tin from water and place on a level surface. Unscrew cap and add CBD (be careful not to overfill). Using a toothpick, gently stir the CBD into the liquified salve. Once thoroughly mixed together, screw cap back on and place in fridge until solidified.
