According to US News & World Report, several individuals reported pain relief from a variety of conditions including back and shoulder injuries from sports, scoliosis, neck pain, and daily stress after using a CBD topical. These individuals also highlighted the non-addictive, side effect-free and non-psychoactive properties of using CBD versus standard forms of medication and pain relief. CBD was also stated to be responsible for breaking one woman’s addiction to opioids.
This study found that CBD was able to reduce pain and inflammation caused by arthritis, stressing that it has no negative side effects like those found in prescription drugs. The study of transdermal application, meaning the application and absorption through the skin, found that topical CBD, “significantly reduced joint swelling...and spontaneous pain.”
THE EFFECTS OF PLANTS + VITAMINS
Many other plant compounds and vitamin properties in conjunction with CBD provide a variety of benefits. Specifically found in The Happy Labs Muscle & Joint Salve, we want to share the properties of the top ingredients.
Neem seed oil contains healing properties, where added lavender flower oil is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antimicrobial, and also detoxifying. Rosemary leaf extract is high in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, specifically strengthens capillaries in the body, and stimulates cell growth to help slow the effects of aging. Vitamin E increases collagen production and is yet another anti-inflammatory ingredient. All of these inflammation-fighting layers can be beneficial when treating sore muscles and joints. Lastly, sunflower seed oil is found to be topically non comedogenic or non-pore clogging, contains additional anti-inflammatory Vitamin E, and helps to treat eczema.
