More and more people are looking for natural ways to ease their aching joints and muscles. Managing pain topically, rather than relying on oral medication, solves two problems:
1) It goes directly onto the area that really hurts.
2) It avoids the potential side effects of ingesting a medication.
Now that CBD has found its way into all sorts of muscle rubs, hemp balms, salves, and lotions it becomes increasingly important to research whether the actual quality matches the claims.
Our CBD Muscle Cream ranks the best according to Men’s Health, CBD Examine, and pro athlete Cris Cyborg. It has also received high praise from the likes of Forbes and Buzzfeed. While this says a lot about a product, this video provides a thorough investigation by detailing the results from two separate 3rd-party lab reports.

Both powerful and gentle, these plant-based compounds are blended in a synergistic formula designed to provide the best topical pain relief possible. A careful look at the full list of ingredients shows why this is the best CBD cream for pain.
CBD Muscle Cream Ingredients
Shea Butter, Menthol, Jojoba, Beeswax, Arnica, Full Spectrum CBD Oil, Rosemary, Lavender
Shea butter provides a smooth, creamy base without leaving an oily residue. Comprised of fats extracted from the nuts of shea trees, its high concentration of vitamins and fatty acids nourishes and replenishes all skin types. Known benefits include: moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, prevents acne, boosts collagen which helps with wrinkles, scarring, and stretch marks(1).
Menthol delivers an immediate sensation of coolness, or even a tingly feeling alternating between hot and cool. Best used for underlying aches and pains and as a muscle rub. Applying directly to irritations, sunburns and sensitive areas will likely produce adverse effects.
Extracted from the seeds of a desert plant, Jojoba oil was first used topically by indigenous people in North America. Among many praise-worthy attributes, it’s also heavy enough to be a carrier oil, while still being a micro-oil that won’t clog pores or feel greasy. In this way, Jojoba penetrates deep below the skin, delivering essential oils and hemp oils to those painful areas. Touted for providing long-lasting hydration and skin nourishment, Jojoba is often used for acne, psoriasis, sunburn, and chapped skin.
The medicinal benefits of Beeswax have been well-chronicled over 2000 years ago in an eminent Chinese medical book known as The Shennong Book of Herbs(2). The record highlighted the positive effects that Beeswax was reputed to have on the circulatory system, energy levels, and wound healing. It was also reported to have anti-aging effects and improved complexion. Beeswax is comprised largely of fatty acids, hydrocarbons, and ester. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties benefit those who suffer from topical allergies or skin ailments, such as eczema and rosacea.
Arnica is an herb that grows mainly in Siberia, central Europe, and North America. Its most commonly used for pain caused by osteoarthritis, bleeding, bruising, swelling after surgery, and other conditions(3).
Full Spectrum CBD
We use a whole-plant, CO2 extraction process that results in a hemp oil rich in CBD, terpenes, flavonoids, and a full spectrum of minor cannabinoids. Containing less than 0.3% THC, there’s no known case where this low-level of THC will penetrate into the bloodstream in any kind of measurable quantity.
Commonly used in folk medicine, but recent science supports many of its uses. Among many benefits, rosemary oil is used to increase circulation and reduce joint inflammation.
As an essential oil Lavender is used to help alleviate eczema and dry skin. Its also used in aromatherapy for calming effects.
The Advantage of CBD Ointments and Lotions
Topical remedies for pain have been around since ancient times. By not passing through the liver & digestive system, you can safely avoid potential side effects while also targeting your pain points more directly. Taking advantage of this tried and true method in a modernized hemp infused pain formula, combines the best of ancient wisdom with modern science.
