You’ve just finished an epic gym session or finally smashed that personal best on a run. Good job!
However, you’ve likely paid for that workout with sore joints and muscles that just don’t want to move anymore.
Aches and soreness can be a part of everyday life. Whether you’re working at a desk, running around after the little ones, or even carrying in the groceries. This is where CBD balms can help any pains just melt away.
Here’s how CBD balms work and how you can use them to feel your best.
What is a CBD balm?
A CBD balm is an oil based product which is infused with cannabidiol, or CBD. CBD is a chemical compound found in the hemp plant (non-psychoactive), which doesn’t cause the ‘high’ associated with marijuana (THC), but contains a wide range of healing benefits.
CBD has been used in a variety of different ways through civilisation. The Greeks and Romans used cannabis leaves to dress wounds and even Queen Victoria used the plants to help alleviate menstrual cramps.
How do CBD balms work?
We have what are known as cannabinoid receptors in our skin. These are linked to the endocannabinoid system in our bodies, which regulates pain sensation. When we useCBD balm on a sore area, the balm binds to these receptors, sending a signal to the endocannabinoid system to help alleviate pain.
Unlike oils and drops, CBD balms only affect the area that they are rubbed on. This means that if you’re new to the world of CBD, balms and creams are an excellent starting point.
CBD balms contain a range of other ingredients that work to cure muscle aches. For example, our Magnesium Tiger Muscle Balm contains eucalyptus and menthol to provide a soothing, cooling effect.
How can I use CBD balms?
No matter whether your legs, arms or back are hurting, CBD balms can help you feel like your best self again.
Balms are perfect for use in sports injury recovery, as well as post and pre-workout.
They’re also good for muscle pains and flare-ups, although we’d recommend speaking to your doctor beforehand, especially if you’re on any other medication.
