From splashing around in the lake, to boogie-boarding the waves at the beach, biking down a mountain, or going on an overnight hiking trip…
Summer is perhaps the time of year where we work our body in ways that we don’t in the other seasons.
Which means muscles you didn’t even know you had are gonna ache. And you may even feel some strain or pain in certain areas throughout your body, especially in your joints.
Now, we all know that over-the-counter meds don’t really cut it these days. They’re full of ingredients that cause a number of side effects.
In fact, more studies are showing just how damaging NSAIDs are for the human body [¹³].
So, what can you use to help address those achy muscles, painful strains, and tender joints?
Here’s the thing…
Most of the studies involving CBD have usually come in the form of either sublingual CBD oil –– a hemp-derived CBD oil you hold under your tongue for about 30 seconds or longer ––
or transdermal CBD gels and creams that you apply onto your skin.
The majority of consumers have heard all about the healing properties of CBD oil. But very few are aware of how powerful and scientifically supported that topical CBD can be at addressing bodily aches and pains.
In a study that was published in 2015, scientists discovered that topical CBD gel “significantly reduced joint swelling” and “spontaneous pain” when applied to rats [¹].
They found that doses of CBD gel from as little as 6.2mg to as high as 62.3 mg were the most effective. Thus concluding that high quality topical CBD gel is a “therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviors and inflammation without evident side effects [¹].”
This is great news, especially when it comes to…
For years, we’ve heard customers ask: Can I rub CBD oil on my skin for pain? And the answer is yes!
The human body is highly absorbent. So rubbing high quality CBD oil that’s infused with MCT oil can be a highly effective topical CBD product.
But when you combine CBD with other incredibly therapeutic skin care ingredients like the ones below, you end up with a powerful, full spectrum topical gel that penetrates your skin and provides a number of therapeutic and relieving properties…
What’s more, our highly effective CBD Cooling Gels are easy to use and can be packed in your backpack or duffel bag for on-the-go use.
So don’t let muscle strains, joint pains, or bodily aches prevent you from hitting the trails and waves this summer…
Instead, embrace those long summer day activities with the reassurance that our topical CBD cooling gel can provide the comfort and relief you need, no matter where you are.
