Relief From Muscle & Joint Pain

Is CBD really the miracle compound for relief of muscle and joint pain?  Is this why there is such a buzz about using CBD?  We think so.  We have a whole series on CBD within  Here we are focused on using hemp derived cannabidiol CBD for muscle and joint pain.

Researchers have found that people were not likely to build up a tolerance to the effects of CBD, so they do not need to increase their dose continually, as is the case with a lot of pain medications.  Also, always remember, Sterling’s CBD will not get you high as it contains absolutely no THC.

As the many benefits of using CBD hemp oil for pain become more evident, CBD products have become increasingly popular. 

Sore muscle relief

Using a hemp derived CBD pain relief rubbing cream, roll-on, or spray on sore muscles is fast becoming a popular option for treating muscle and joint pain.

Sore muscles, whether the result of stress, over-activity, tension or injury can be a debilitating reality for anyone with an active lifestyle, such as professional athletes, gym users, golf and tennis enthusiasts, and factory workers, just to name a few.  Additional benefits include their non-addictive properties and the fact that, unlike with other pain medication use, the body does not build up a resistance to the pain-relieving effects of CBD over time. Additionally, it seems, topical CBD applications can improve the health and appearance of the skin, due to CBD’s high antioxidant content.

What Causes Muscle Fatigue After Strenuous Exercise?

When muscles rub against each other during sports, workouts, or during training sessions, a condition known as DOMS or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is triggered. As the tearing of the muscles continues, you start to feel fatigue. Usually, as the muscles swell, you start to feel fatigue. Inflammation is experienced when muscles are damaged. When muscles are damaged, it becomes difficult to heal until inflammation is eased – and that’s where CBD hemp oil becomes helpful.  In reducing the inflammation.  It seems hemp derived CBD is particularly good at relieving inflammation in the body.

Chronic pain

The same report studied CBD use for general chronic pain. Researchers compiled the results of multiple systematic reviews covering dozens of trials and studies. Their research concluded that there is substantial evidence that cannabidiol (CBD) is an effective treatment for chronic pain in adults.

A separate study in the Journal of Experimental Medicine supports these results. This research suggests that using CBD can reduce pain and inflammation.

They noted that CBD cannabinoids could offer helpful new treatments for people with chronic pain.

The non-intoxicating compound in the cannabis indica plant (hemp), cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD is believed to be effective in treating a laundry list of conditions, including inflammation of joints and muscles.

CBD salves, rub-on, and sprays as a direct delivery

While methods like candies and tinctures are becoming popular ways to take CBD, there’s no need to ingest cannabidiol (CBD) to make the most of its pain-relieving effects. For consumers seeking to ease a specific muscle or joint ache or pain as quickly as possible, a topical product like a CBD salve can be a good solution.

Salves go straight to the source, focusing the effects of CBD directly on a problem area. That makes CBD salves an ideal delivery system for athletes, people with chronic pain, or anyone who just wants no-nonsense relief for everyday aches and pains. Studies show that using a CBD salve right on the affected area is not just effective… it is powerful.

Because a CBD salve doesn’t need to be metabolized, a topical dosage is strong, reliable, and starts working quickly. When used directly on the muscle that’s giving you grief, a CBD salve doesn’t just alleviate pain, like a warm rub or a cooling, menthol liniment. It actually fights inflammation at the source.

This doesn’t mean traditional muscle rub ingredients like menthol don’t play a supporting role in CBD salves.  Some salves are formulated with go-to pain relievers like arnica and peppermint that supplement the relief provided by CBD.
