The skin is your body’s largest organ and provides a huge surface area to absorb cannabinoids. The stratum corneum (SC) is the top layer that forms a protective barrier to absorption into the lower skin layers.
Think of the skin as a brick and mortar structure with keratinocyctes making up the bricks and lipid molecules as the mortar.
The SC has 10-30 layers of these bricks with thicker layers on the palms of your hands and bottom of your feet. The areas with the thinnest layers are the forehead, jaw, scalp and armpits.
Your skin isn’t sponge and not many things can get past it. Water is a critical component to aid absorption into the skin. Plump hydrated skins cells facilitate the uptake of therapeutic ingredients in skin creams.
So how does our pain cream differ from other topical creams?
The skin has it’s own system of cannabinoid receptors that interact with phytocannabinoids like CBD. Most CBD topicals will interact with the skin’s endocannabinoid system to help relieve pain and inflammation. There are limitations. Many topical creams only go skin deep.
Compounds like beeswax, shea butter, lanolin, and cocoa butter are great at keeping the skin soft and preventing dehydration, but not so great when it comes to transport of active ingredients across the skin.
These topical creams sit on top of the skin and offer localized relief from pain and inflammation. In contrast, our trans-dermal cream get past the SC having a wider impact across the whole body.
Our pain cream is a means to bypass the 1st pass drug metabolism in the gastrointestinal tract. They’re also used as an alternative to those who have trouble taking drugs orally. In other words, our cream won’t damage the liver nor give you stomach issues.
