What is the difference between a cream and an ointment?

CBDMEDIC™ creams are water-based. Distilled water is blended with natural oils to make up a portion of the formulation in order to promote fast absorption. They are intended for areas of the body that may require frequent use, like the hands or feet.

CBDMEDIC™ ointments are made with all-natural oils and organic waxes, specifically chosen to enable deep penetration into muscles and joints.

Bottom Line: The pain-relieving effects of our ointments generally last longer than creams, since water evaporates. However, the scent evaporates sooner in creams.

What is the difference between a topical CBD cream or ointment vs a CBD oil for internal use?

A topical cream or ointment is a localized method of administration designed to target the affected area of the body by penetrating the top layers of the skin quick delivery. CBDMEDIC™’s products are not transdermal, meaning they do not enter the bloodstream. This means that they are unlikely to interact negatively with other medications.

On the other hand, systemic oral oils and tinctures are absorbed through the mucus membranes and enter the bloodstream. Moreover, they have an increased time to delivery, since it takes time to work through the body. Since they enter the bloodstream, it is advisable to speak to your doctor if you are worried about how they can interact with other medications you may be taking.
