I’ve spoken to hundreds of consumers who started taking CBD for a variety of reasons - anxiety, focus & sleep to name a few. Overwhelmingly, though, it is chronic inflammation that forces newbies to ditch the painkillers and turn to cannabis products.
Chronic inflammatory conditions encompass those such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, as well as Chron’s & colitis. In fact, it is estimated that some twenty-eight million Brits are dealing with chronic pain - no doubt largely caused by inflammation.
Thankfully, the barriers to entry for small companies (such as ourselves) in the CBD market are being removed, and UK consumers are now spoilt for choice when browsing for products to help manage their pain. But how do you choose a product that’s right for you?
We’re a big fan of CBD oils for day-to-day wellness, but localised pain more often than not can be more effectively managed using specially made CBD balms or muscle rubs. Our 1200mg muscle balm is made from all-natural ingredients including anti-inflammatory essential oils as we truly believe the entourage effect provided by plant-terpenes and CBD provides pain relief like no other. Simply rub the balm into the afflicted area and give it some time to work.
We have found that applying the rub after a hot bath in epsom salts (especially our CBD epsom salts - shameless plug, I know) provides the maximum benefit.
According to our customers, CBD muscle balms can be effective for:
- Stiff joints
- Boxer’s hands
- Arthritic joints
- Softening rough skin on the body, hands and feet
- Post-workout muscle soreness
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Symptoms of PCOS/Endometriosis
Keeping on top of inflammation is imperative for good health. Perhaps incorporate a turmeric & piperine, vitamin D3 or desiccated beef liver capsule into your daily routine and see what works for you.
