CBD Hacker Ranks the Top 15 CBD Topical Products for 2018

With this ranking, we wanted to provide consumers with a side-by-side comparison of the best products we could find. Whether they’re looking for a specific cannabinoid profile, or just trying to avoid certain common ingredients, our ranking has the info shoppers need to make an informed decision.

CBD Hacker, the definitive guide to the CBD industry, has named their Top 15 Topical CBD Products for 2018. The list is the result of hands-on evaluations of 25 products, and includes a wide range of price points and formulations from both leaders and newcomers to the industry.

CBD’s growing reputation as a treatment for whatever ails you comes from its natural antioxidant, pain-relieving, and anti-inflammatory properties. These effects mean that applying CBD cream, salve, or balm to the skin can provide targeted relief for muscle or joint pain, or for skin conditions like acne or eczema.

“We’ve heard from CBD consumers who use topicals for everything from arthritis to psoriasis,” said CBD Hacker’s managing editor Meg Kramer. “But the products on the market offer a wide range of formulas and prices, so it can be hard to figure out which ones are appropriate for specific purposes.”
