People are looking for new and nonaddictive ways to treat pain. Topical CBD cream works on a targeted area because the cannabidiol compounds are absorbed through the skin. Instead of entering the bloodstream like CBD does when you take it orally, topical CBD connects with nearby cannabinoid receptors through the skin pores.
Our Relieve Topical formula combines CBD, plant terpenes, essential oils, and whole-food emulsifiers to create a smooth and natural pain-relieving formula. In this close-up, we examine the science behind our ingredients.
CBD provides pain relief through several biological processes in the body. Rather than simply blocking the pain signal like some medications, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) to help the body restore balance and improve function. The ECS regulates and modulates the immune response, communication between cells, metabolism, memory, mood, and pain perception.
Preclinical trials show CBD to reduce different types of pain. In one study, CBD reduced pain from a surgical incision. In another, it reduced neuropathic pain and inflammation associated with sciatica.
CBD has neuroprotective properties, which means it can help protect and regenerate your nervous system. Preclinical studies show CBD may decrease inflammation and prevent neurodegeneration.
CBD is the first active ingredient in our Relieve Topical formula. It is assisted by an entourage of plant terpenes.
Like the CBD molecule, plant terpenes are specialized molecules able to interact with our ECS and other biological systems. The six terpenes in our Relieve Topical are alpha and beta-pinene, beta-caryophyllene, terpinolene, limonene, and myrcene.
Alpha and beta-pinene exhibit anti-inflammatory activity and reduce pain in preclinical studies. Initial studies on beta-caryophyllene show it fights inflammation and accelerates cell healing.
Limonene acts as a natural insecticide, antiviral, and kills bacteria. It also enhances mood and well-being, has a sedative effect and stress-fighting properties.
Myrcene is a well-loved terpene in the world of cannabis research. It works as an analgesic to reduce bodily discomfort and pain and as a sedative. Myrcene also helps your muscles relax.
Terpinolene shows promise as an anti-inflammatory and to provide pain relief. It also reduces anxiety and is under research as a way to treat insomnia and panic attacks.
All plants create terpenes to attract pollinators, repel pests, repair cells, and other essential functions, but hemp has one of the highest concentrations of any plant. When you breathe in the natural scent of lavender or citrus, for example, you are inhaling beneficial terpene molecules. Pinene smells like pine needs, and limonene has a citrusy aroma. Terpinolene's scent is more intricate than most, including piney, floral, and herbaceous notes.
For complete plant medicine, our Relieve Topical includes ten essential oils: geranium, chamomile, lavender, peppermint, comfrey, eucalyptus, rosemary, tea tree, ylang-ylang, and frankincense.
Geranium applied topically on the skin, geranium oil kills bacteria and reduces inflammation. One study found it to relieve nerve pain.
German Chamomile reduces swelling and promotes relaxation. In a preclinical study, German chamomile relieved both the symptoms and underlying allergic markers for eczema.
Lavender is one of the most popular aromatherapy scents, lavender, is celebrated for its ability to soothe and relax. A clinical study found that lavender reduced pain and eased muscle tension when combined with other pain treatments.
Peppermint contains menthol to cool sore, achy muscles. It also reduces the perception of pain and fights inflammation.
Comfrey gets conventional researchers' attention, several randomized clinical trials support the usefulness of topically-applied comfrey to treat pain, inflammation of muscles and joints, and sprains.
Eucalyptus has a soothing, cooling effect on muscles and eases pain and inflammation.
Rosemary is not only great on chicken and potatoes! The essential oil is noted for its pain-relieving and anti-inflammation properties.
Tea Tree oil reduces inflammation, kills bacteria, and soothes redness and swelling.
Ylang-Ylang studies demonstrate ylang-ylang's capacity to kill bacteria and fungus and help wounds heal. It also may have soothing, sedative properties. Some people use it on their scalps to promote hair growth.
Frankincense alleviates pain and swelling and invigorates blood flow in the area.
Our Relieve Topical is completed with whole-food emulsifiers, including vitamin E, coconut oil, and rose damascene water.
Vitamin E nourishes your skin and protects it from free radicals. Rose Damascena water boasts antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties.
When applied to your skin, coconut oil fights inflammation, keeps skin moisturized, and promotes wound healing.
