If you’re someone who exercises, plays sports, or engages in intense physical activities, you're no stranger to pain, sores muscles, and general injuries.
There are many products on the market to help aid with these sorts of normalcies for active people. Products such as body braces & sleeves, creams, Epsom salts, hot & cold patches, etc. are usually the go-to products when experiencing these symptoms.
However, a new type of pain relief is becoming more popular each day. It’s cannabinol, also known as CBD. You might've heard about it or seen it around before. It's not uncommon to find CBD in gas stations, coffee shops, health and wellness stores, even certain large retailers like CVS Pharmacy.
CBD comes in many different forms such as edibles, beverages, flower, concentrates, oils, and topicals. All forms of CBD are great for pain. However, some forms are more geared than others towards combatting physical pain in targeted areas. Products like lotions, creams, and salves are ideal are for targeting physically painful spots.
Organizations that are Validating CBD’s Benefits
This giant retailer is one out of many that are carrying CBD hemp products. CVS carrying CBD products significantly strengths the cannabis movement. For retailers of this status to back CBD, it shows they acknowledge both demands of the users and the potential benefits of CBD.
In one of our previous posts, our staff mentioned that, CVS made “the bold move to be the first retail chain to start introducing CBD products. However, they won’t be carrying multiple forms of hemp-based CBD, just topicals like lotions and creams, targeting and combatting areas of physical pain like arthritis. CVS decided to unroll CBD topical products in 800 stores nationwide in select in states.”
CVS wanted to meet the demands of consumers who want pain relief in the forms of natural remedies such as CBD. Many people who suffer from arthritis claim that CBD helps reduce the pain associated with it.
Our social media manager had the chance to try some of our CBD Magic Pain Cream. The following is his experience:
“I exercise frequently, about 4-5 times a week. Normally, I try to push myself, so my body is sore often. I occasionally hurt and pull muscles as well.
Recently, my elbow has been bothering me from weightlifting. It doesn’t feel like a torn muscle, but more like joint pain. In a decent amount of my workouts, there is a lot of arm extending. Due to the pain, I haven’t been able to work out for about a week.
I haven’t taken anything for the pain, thinking it would naturally go away after a week. Since it didn’t, I decided to try the CBD Magic Pain Cream. I rubbed a quarter-sized amount onto my elbow until completely absorbed.
About 10 to 15 minutes after applying the cream, I felt a cooling sensation and pain relief. My pain was relieved for multiple hours.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who frequently weight lifts or plays sports that are rough on the joints and muscles.”

A Purple Heart decorated disabled veteran, Sean Worsley has just been released from an Alabama State prison last week on parole after serving eight months out of a five-year sentence.
The Iraq War veterans’ trouble with the law started in August 2016 when he stopped at an Alabama gas station while driving to North Carolina to help his grandmother relocate after a hurricane. At the station, police asked Worsley and his wife to turn down their car stereo, and although they complied, the cops searched their car. Inside, they found a prescription bottle filled with medical marijuana.
