Let’s talk about topicals.

Kiskanu’s expertise lies in creating topicals.

Rather than being used internally, topicals are applied to the surface of the skin to interact directly with that area for targeted effects. Instead of entering the bloodstream for full body effects, the CBD and other cannabinoids interact with endocannabinoid receptors in the skin. They are typically used for localized pain or soreness, inflammation, skin irritations, etc.

All Natural, Organic Ingredients

The quality of ingredients are of utmost importance when it comes to topicals (the largest organ in your body is your skin, after all!), and Kiskanu cuts no corners with their Skin Rub. Their base of all cold-pressed oils means that every oil retains its nutrients (such as vitamins and minerals) since it isn’t altered at all by heat or refining processes.

Here’s a breakdown of the benefits of each ingredient, as outlined by Kiskanu*:


A powerful anti-inflammatory and is known to enhance muscle relaxation and soothe nerve pain. Learn more about CBD and other cannabinoids here.

Hemp Oil

St. John’s Wort

A known pain reliever with antifungal, antibacterial, and antispasmodic properties that can aid wounds, burns, and blemish healing.

Lavender is rich in the terpene linalool, which is known for its calming effects and has antipsychotic, antiepileptic, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Seals the ingredients into the skin to protect it from outside elements so that it can work longer.

Coconut Oil

Can help protect your skin from infections in wounds with its disinfecting and antimicrobial properties.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is a great source of vitamin B, which improves the ability of the skin to retain moisture, helping reduce dryness, redness, and fine lines.

There is also vitamin E in jojoba oil, which is a powerful antioxidant with anti-aging properties.

Olive Oil

Contains antioxidants that can help reduce inflammation and promote homeostasis in the skin.

How to Use Kiskanu’s Skin Rub

Kiskanu suggests using their Skin Rub for dry skin, sore muscles, minor aches and pains, arthritic joints, and nerve pain, etc.* Some have also found that it can provide relief from insomnia.

Apply a small amount of CBD Skin Rub to the skin and massage into the skin using circular motions. Effects usually last 1-2 hours, but you can apply as often as needed. Note that due to the oils in this rub, it may stain clothing.
