In this time of social distancing, certain types of self-care and healthcare  — yoga, exercise classes, tele-health visits — can still be experienced successfully through various online platforms. But for those who suffer with ailments that rely on hands-on practices such as massage, physical therapy, and chiropractic care to bring about healing, complete muscle pain relief can remain elusive. Over-the-counter analgesics often don’t cut it, so it’s not surprising that topical CBD products promoting pain relief are more popular — and more easily accessible — than ever.

Working at a computer 8 hours a day doesn’t do your body any favors. Almost daily, I’m distracted from my work by agonizing muscle and joint pain, making it hard to concentrate on anything other than finding relief. As part of an ongoing series highlighting various CBD products available from online store Pure CBD Vapors, this review will focus on three CBD-infused products that specifically offer topical pain relief.

These products are:

CBD For Life Rub

For consistency and ease of assessment, I used the Lemongrass scent/essence of each product, and treated my neck, shoulders, and / or jawline (areas where I experience chronic pain due to mild arthritis and TMJ) with a different product each day, over the course of about a week. Here are my findings.

CBD For The People Unrefined Salve

About the Product:

While most hemp extracts go through several refinement processes, CBD For the People, Unrefined Salve formula contains completely raw and unrefined hemp. The result is a far more potent product that’s higher in cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, and also accounts for its naturally darker color. This rub contains full spectrum hemp extract and, due to its incredible potency, just a small amount is needed. The salve is also contains ingredients which are very nourishing to the skin (see below).

What’s In It: 100% unrefined, non-GMO, decarboxylated, cannabinoid-rich, hemp-legal aerial cannabis extract. Full spectrum cannabinoid profile, natural terpenoids, vitamin E, omega 3,6,9 essential fatty acids, natural hemp chlorophyll, and other natural phytonutrients. Salve base ingredients: Organic unrefined coconut oil, organic unrefined African shea butter, candelilla vegan plant wax, organic essential oils blend, arnica oil, vitamin E.

Choice of Scent / Essence: Lavender, Tea Tree, Lemongrass

Price: $55 (2 oz., 600 mg) and $80 (2 oz., 1200 mg)

My Experience:

The CBD For the People Unrefined Salve has become my treatment of choice for my chronic neck pain, which usually only responds to Craniosacral therapy. It’s true that just a small amount applied and massaged into my sore, stiff neck muscles brings noticeable, effective relief within a few seconds — much faster than waiting for Advil to take effect. The pain continues to dissipate for a few minutes until it ‘slips into the background,’ so to speak, allowing you to continue with whatever you were doing, as if the pain were never there. The lemongrass scent of this salve is noticeably muted by a slightly sweet, nutty essence, due to its unrefined nature. This is also the greasiest of the three products, though it will eventually mostly absorb into the skin (I advise keeping it away from silk and other fabrics that can stain easily). Since a little goes a long way, one jar could easily last six months or longer, depending on how often you use it.

CBD For Life Rub

About the Product: CBD For Life Rub is a zesty scented, top-rated topical that quickly soothes muscle soreness and eases joint discomfort. Powered by phytonutrient-rich CBD and powerful essential oils, it quickly absorbs into the skin, delivering the results you want, when you want it. This powerful rub contains 120 milligrams of hemp extract. Simply apply a small amount to any area that hurts and discover instant euphoria.

What’s In It: Cannabidiol (CBD), hemp seed oil, bees wax, camphor, cajuput oil, cymbopogon schoenanthus (lemongrass) oil, menthol, lanolin, eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, eugenia caryophyllus (clove) oil.

Choice of Scent / Essence: Original, Lavender, Lemongrass

Price: $25 (.9 oz, 120mg CBD)

My Experience: Much of what was said about the Unrefined Salve applies to this rub, which is lighter in texture and color. The rub absorbs quickly (not too greasy) and alleviated my jaw pain within 10 to 20 seconds of applying. The citrus smell is much more evident here than with the salve, and it has a slight menthol essence which I find pleasant. Again, this topical product definitely preferred over waiting for Advil to kick in. While this rub does not completely eliminate pain, it does provide virtually instant relief and will quickly push remaining discomfort to the background, so that you are able continue working in comfort, free from the constant distraction of chronic pain. This rub can be reapplied every few hours, as needed.

CBD For Life Roll-On

About the Product:

CBD For Life Roll-On Oil (120mg potency) is super easy to use, as it comes in a convenient roll-on bottle, allowing you to quickly target the affected area. Simply roll over forehead, temples, and neck, keeping your fingers clean during the application process. The stainless-steel applicator ensures an equal distribution of oils directly to the skin with every use . This fully vegan lemony Roll-on oil combines CBD and Lavender Essential Oils to regulate levels. The colorless formula quickly absorbs and penetrates deep into muscle and joint regions to release the unique properties of CBD. Combining CBD with assorted natural oils plus menthol allows for rapid absorption and deep penetration into the body.

What’s In It: aprylic/capric triglyceride, hemp seed oil, cannabidiol (cbd), cinnamomum camphora oil, melaleuca leucadendron cajuput oil, menthol, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, cinnamomum cassia leaf oil, eugenia caryophyllus (clove) oil

Choice of Scent / Essence: Original, Lavender, Lemongrass

Price: $30 (.64 oz,120 mg), or set of all three scents for $90

My Experience:

An obvious selling point of the CBD For Life Roll-On, besides its no-mess ease of application, is its portability. Each vial comes in a high-quality, protective cardboard tube that is slender enough to slip into even the smallest handbag or pocket, for grab-and-go pain relief! This product would be ideal to keep in your office, as you can use it discreetly without attracting attention. I like to roll this on my neck, behind my ear and along my jaw for quick relief with a slight tingling feeling. The very enjoyable bright citrus smell makes you feel like you are in a high-end spa, and its blend of essential oils are both fragrant and invigorating.

While your mileage my vary, these are all terrific, effective products, which have been game-changers in how I manage my chronic pain, especially until I can go to the massage therapist for some hands-on healing. I would recommend picking up all three, so that you are ready to handle whatever the day gives you.
