There is a potential downside to being so active: muscle aches and pain. I am an avid hiker, runner, and adventurer and some of the areas that give me trouble are my lower back and if you can believe it: my glutes! I usually don’t have intense pain but if I do, I try not to take over-the-counter medications as I have a preference for holistic and homeopathic remedies. I had the opportunity to test out Social CBD’s Muscle Rub, which is a cream that comes in a 3 oz bottle-perfect for traveling in carry ons by the way!
The 250MB of CBD in the cream was the main benefit to healing my aches after runs or even an intense yoga flow session. The cream contains the hemp derivative along with natural ingredients like Aloe, Vitamin E, Tea Tree oil, and Menthol. Although the smell is not as strong as Vicks rub, you will definitely get a calming smell of menthol when you rub onto your skin that also creates a cooling sensation that soothed my muscles in just a few minutes!
After testing the cream for several weeks, I would recommend the Social CBD muscle rub and you can rest easy knowing that the product has been verified and tested for its effectiveness by an independent marketplace called Shop CBD. Their method of testing includes quality standards; making sure that it has the amount of CBD advertised; and addressing a lack of pesticides and heavy metals. Phew! Its crazy to imagine how many products have misrepresentations, but this method of verification is impressive and also makes me want to continue my use of Social CBD’s Muscle Rub.
