One of the most beneficial consequences of legalizing hemp-derived cannabinoids is the evolution of administration methods. A decade ago, CBD tincture and lotion were available but only at medical or recreational dispensaries. Now that CBD products are freely produced, and the demand has increased exponentially, there’s more opportunity to innovate. CBD sprays are one of the prime examples of the ever-evolving industry of cannabinoid administration.
Sprays can be used orally or topically to deliver the potential benefits of CBD. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of each administration method and how to maximize efficiency. Using CBD correctly can be the difference between the products not living up to the hype and experiencing life-changing benefits.
Before purchasing an oral or topical CBD spray, be sure that the product is:
- Free from heavy metals and pesticides
- Have 3rd party lab tests verifying potency claims
- From a reputable CBD company
Also, be mindful of other ingredients. Many CBD products, especially topicals, can contain harmful additives or fillers.
Topical Spray for Pain
A SingleCare survey found that 60% of people who use CBD do so for pain management. Typically, topical cream or balm is rubbed into the skin when the user needs relief in the affected area. Topical CBD is a great way to send a concentrated dose directly to the area in need, as opposed to using oil or an edible to combat pain.
CBD topical spray has the same advantage but is much easier to apply. For example, when the user notices a soreness in their muscles or joints, they can use the spray to send a dose of CBD to the affected area.
Another advantage of topical CBD is the combination of other natural or synthetic pain-relievers. Companies use plant-based ingredients like arnica, camphor, and aloe vera to help the CBD provide relief.
Another ingredient commonly used in CBD topicals is menthol. The chemical delivers a cooling sensation and can reduce inflammation. Traditional pain-relieving ointments like Icey Hot and BioFreeze also use menthol to fight pain. Combining these ingredients with CBD is a logical strategy to ensure the user gets the best possible results out of their topical.
How to Use CBD Topical Spray
Topical CBD spray is applied directly to the area of concern and usually requires the user to rub in the product. Most topical CBD users report instantaneous relief regarding minor muscle and joint soars.

Oral CBD Spray
Oral CBD spray isn’t as common as CBD oil or gummies but is meant to be delivered similarly. Finding spray is more difficult than topicals, but you should judge the company by the same metrics, 3rd party tests, the source of hemp, and free from harmful additives, heavy metals, and pesticides.
One of the only government-approved drugs with cannabinoids as the active ingredient is an oral spray called Sativex. The spray is available to MS patients in various countries in Europe and Canada.
How to Use Oral Sublingual CBD Spray
Oral CBD spray is designed to be taken sublingually or absorbed by the mucosal membrane in the mouth into the bloodstream. Once CBD is in the blood, it becomes usable or bioavailable and distributed throughout the body.
Using CBD sublingually ensures that CBD is delivered throughout the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex network of neurotransmitters, receptors, and enzymes responsible for CBD’s benefits.
Sublingual CBD is meant to be taken regularly for a period to build a healthy ECS.

Utilize Both Administration Methods for an All-inclusive Approach
Topical and oral CBD help the user on two different fronts. Topical CBD can be delivered directly to the source of pain, while oral CBD is distributed to all parts of the body and ECS. We highly recommend trying both methods and experimenting with taking them together. Oral CBD spray should be taken daily, and topical spray used when you are experiencing a sore muscle or joint and need immediate relief.
