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 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 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 The People Unrefined Salve
CBD For Life Roll-on
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.
In these admittedly stressful times, self care is vital. Despite many stores being closed, anyone whose lifestyle incorporates the beneficial effects of CBD can find a variety of related health and beauty products available with just an internet connection and a credit card — and that’s great news. Word-of-mouth and online reviews are excellent resources for researching brands and comparing prices, but wouldn’t you love to find an online retailer that did all the footwork for you, vetting a wide range of CDB-infused product brands, and then gathering everything together in a single shopping destination? Well, guess what: that retailer is Pure CBD Vapors. Established in 2014, CBD Pure Vapors stands by the promise that every single product available on their site has been Lab tested for CBD purity meeting their ‘gold’ standards. This combination of quality-tested inventory and top-shelf customer service means that CBD Pure Vapors can be your one-stop-shop. Finally, something is easy.
CBD Pure Vapors recently sent us a box of assorted CBD-infused personal care products to review for Worleygig.com and, rather than overwhelm you by covering multiple items in one post, we’ll be reviewing different products in a series of features. This week, we’ll take a look at one of the ultimate items for pampering yourself: the Bath Bomb. Like an oasis in your tub, CBD bath bombs offer the ultimate in skin care, relaxation, and tranquility. CBD Pure Vapors sent us two bath bombs from the CBD for Life brand.
CBD for Life bath bombs come in four unique scents: Eucalyptus and Peppermint, Fresh Bamboo (truly unique!), and the two scents we received, Pink Salt and Citrus, and Lemongrass Kiwi. Each mineral-rich bath bomb blends natural salts, organic essential oils, and 35mg of CBD extract from organically grown hemp to soothe sore muscles and moisturize the skin. All you have to do to enjoy the bath bomb experience is fill your tub with warm water, drop in the bath bomb and enjoy! Since my bathroom has a shower only and no tub, we passed the bombs along to our associate Lauren, a CBD expert, to enjoy. Her comments follow.
It’s The Bomb!
“The effects of using the Lemongrass Kiwi bomb were calming in both mind and body,” Lauren offered. “The coconut oil blended with the kiwi and lemongrass, making my skin smell like I was luxuriating in a beautiful garden, far away from the tub in my Manhattan apartment.”

If you haven’t noticed that CBD and CBD-infused products have flooded pop culture consciousness as far-reaching wellness solutions, then you have been living under the proverbial rock. As someone who needs to manage chronic pain, I’ve spent considerable time investigating CBD wellness products that could help alleviate my discomfort, and perhaps also promote a night of restful sleep. The thing is, I didn’t know who to trust when it came to making a purchase. Last summer while vacationing in the Berkshires, my trusted pothead friends took me with them to their local dispensary. With guidance from a knowledgeable employee, I purchased a CDB tincture (oil) containing only trace amounts of THC, which means there’s no high involved. I’m happy to say that this product has worked well for me with no harmful side effects! What a relief.
Just as I was getting low on the product purchased in Massachusetts, and not sure where to find a trusted local source that could sell me an equivalent-quality replacement, I received a pitch to review the CBD wellness products of a company called Vitagenne. Timing: perfect.
Let’s get real: staying sane during the Covid-19 lockdown is a serious challenge. Just trying to work from home, keep my apartment appropriately sanitized, feed myself and cope with the news can make the day-to-day routine overwhelming. I know I’m not alone in experiencing an increased need to manage anxiety and stress, and having added pain doesn’t help, so this is really the perfect opportunity to introduce you to Vitagenne. While Vitagenne makes a full line of hemp-derived CBD products, they sent me their Pure Wellness Hemp CBD Oil Supplement, so that is what I will review here, based on my experience.
The primary difference between the supplement I had been using, and the Vitagenne CBD oil, is that while the dispensary product contained a trace amount of THC (producing no ‘high’), Vitagenne contains no THC, which makes it legal to travel with anywhere in the US, even states where pot is not yet legal or decriminalized. The lack of THC also means that this product has virtually no taste or odor. This is a big plus for anyone who has an aversion to the smell or taste of supplements. Vitagenne is 99% Pure CBD Isolate combined with 1% Coconut MCT Oil, offered in three strengths; 500 mg, 1500 mg, and 3000 mg. CBD oil is intended to be consumed sublingually — applied under the tongue and held for 60 seconds — but since it is unflavored you can also enjoy it mixed with any of your favorite beverages. I am using 1500mg strength, and find it very effect and fast-acting to alleviate my moderate, chronic joint pain. Taken at bedtime, it also helps me drift off to a sound sleep, which is so necessary in these times.
A couple of weeks ago I attended a fun launch party for the Haring Glass collection; an officially-licensed line of smoking and lifestyle accessories bearing artwork by the late Keith Haring. Everyone left the festivities with a gift bag that included a few branded items from the collection, a T-Shirt, and this bag of CBD-infused dog treats, or Edibites, whose packaging features Haring’s iconic image of a Barking Dog. Apparently these taste like Pizza, for when you want to share a slice with that special dog in your life.
