cbd muscle balm

"Pain relief is an achievable outcome from both inhaling a pen and massaging CBD topicals to the affected area. Otherwise, the potential benefits differ. Inhaling or ingesting CBD can help with sleep, relaxation and anxiety, while topical application can deliver localised reduction in inflammation and assist sore muscles and joint pain recovery post-workout. It's best to use a combination of the above depending on the time and place."

Of all the products now touting CBD among their ingredients list, few have more of a case than CBD balms. Harnessing the anti-inflammatory properties of the much-hyped ingredient of the cannabis plant, cannabidiol is increasingly popular in topical products such as lotions, creams and muscle balms, offering the best of the plant's health upshots without the THC high.

Offering the dual benefit of chronic pain relief and targeting a long list of skin conditions, CBD balms make much more of a case for the ingredient than a small amount of CBD oil in your oat milk flat white. To learn more about what's being touted as your next grooming essential, we caught up with Matthew Anderson and Harry Jameson, founders of London-based CBD brand Rain.

"We have an endocannabinoid system that regulates our bodies in numerous ways, but muscle formation is one of them and that's obviously a big goal of exercise. One of CBD's biggest assets is its anti-inflammatory properties and that's where it can really come into play from a recovery POV. That's why it's become so popular with rugby players, boxers and MMA fighters who have come to regard it as a key asset in their recovery toolkit. The key to recovery is reduction in inflammation – not just to ease muscular soreness but to create readiness to go again and again."

What are the benefits of CBD for muscle pain?

“Your skin houses CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors, which when activated can help promote the regeneration of healthy skin. Studies have found that they have the ability to reduce excess skin growth, which is associated with conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. Additionally, CBD prevents production of too much sebum and is anti-inflammatory – both good for controlling acne.”

"Our preferred base is shea butter because it's a super moisturising natural ingredient and has its own anti-inflammatory properties that augment those of the CBD. Given reducing inflammation (and with it pain) is the main goal of a balm, looking for other ingredients with that property makes sense. Calendula, apricot kernel, rosehip and geranium are high-quality, all-natural essential oils with anti-inflammatory properties."
