Chronic Pain Smackdown- CBD Products that Work Amazing!

CHRONIC PAIN SUCKS!  

Chronic Pain- Check out what CBD products I use.

Managing daily pain is one of the biggest hurdles in having chronic pain. The pain will never go away, so instead of wishing for no pain, I manage my pain.  I wake every day in pain and have no idea how much or how little I will feel that day.  Living with chronic pain, you go through a lot, and it’s hard to let people know how much pain you are in because people tend not to believe you or don’t understand.


Taking PAIN MEDICINE-Never Again!

When I found out I had Rheumatoid Arthritis, I was in shock, and how could arthritis make me feel so bad. The first thing my doctor wanted to do was put me on pain pills. Oh great- my family is full of drug addicts that started with pain pills- my sister, my mom, and dad! 

I took them, BUT within a month, they were messing with my PTSD meds, and I was a mess! Let me say I ended up in the hospital on suicide watch. Not cool at all! I stopped all meds at that time. I couldn’t put my family, myself and my body through that ever again, 

I had to find better ways to deal with this daily pain that wasn’t going away.  That is when CBD entered my life and what a blessing it has been. Now I’ve tried several different brands, and pretty much they all work. CBD has changed my life in many ways.  

CBD Products I USE!

Hemp Theory

Hemp Theory products (sold on AMAZON) are made of full spectrum Hemp (no THC) with NEW patented Nanobidiol Technology.  So no, they don’t get you high- just had to reassure you first! 

Nanobidol Technology allows the CBD to enter your bloodstream very quickly and easier as the molecules are much smaller.  You will get the onset of effects and health benefits that help you feel and look better inside and out super fast!  Need fast relief this is the brand!

Hemp Theory Hemp Oil Extract Tincture 

I take this on my BAD DAYS!  Yes, you can take every day, of course. The tincture relieves pain, anxiety, stress, and helps improve sleep.  The hemp extract in Hemp Theory Hemp Extract Oil quickly and easily enters your bloodstream, allowing for one of the cleanest Hemp Oil experiences available. It is packed with Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids for overall health and brain function.

This is my GO-TO when I can’t handle life, pain, or need to relax. I hold the drops under my tongue for a bit then swallow.  Easy peasy and I can take the tincture with me to work or when I’m at the gym. Those are the two places I need that extra pain relief love! 

Hemp Theory Powerful Fast Pain Relief Hemp Cream 

OMG…this is my favorite pain relief cream I’ve ever tried.  It works so fast and does exactly what I need it to do for me to work and sleep. It provides quick relief of back, knee, joint, nerve, carpal tunnel, and arthritis issues. This pain relief cream is made from only the highest-quality full-spectrum hemp so you can get the pain relief you need without worrying about side effects or getting high.

All you need to do is rub this on the pain.  I will rub all over my arms and legs- since my joints hurt so bad, I can use this on exactly where it hurts the most and BAM- the relief comes. I never got that from pain pills!  No wonder I’m almost out of this!

Hemp Theory Honey

Oh, yes, HONEY!  Whoever came up with CDB Honey is my best friend!  Do you know how good I sleep at night now- EXCELLENT!  I make me a cup of chamomile tea every night and put in Hemp Theory Honey. 

My cup of tea helps me calm down from a stressful or painful day in minutes.  It also has the Nanobidiol™ Technology, so it has a high bioavailability for an ultra-quick and clean onset of effects. Plus, it tastes so good.  I highly recommend this product! 

Maggie’s Mist – CBD Spray

Yes, all you have to do is spray on Maggie’s Mist!  Besides CBD, it’s packed with other natural ingredients- menthol, clove bud oil, sweet birch oil, peppermint oil, and arnica oil. So you know this is smelling good. 

I like this spray because I can throw it in my purse, and when I’m feeling pain on my body, I spray this right on the pain. Spray it where it hurts! The spray is applied in a clear mist that won’t stain, dries quickly, and makes an easy addition to your purse, backpack, briefcase, or gym bag.  So convenient and easy to use!  

Now CBD can also be used in your beauty routine, too, so I wanted to share some products from Color Up- skincare line. 

Color Up

Color Up, a CBD infused skin care line that is dedicated to bringing clean, organic-hemp based skincare products to the market. All Color Up products and services are infused with CBD from organically and sustainably grown hemp on a 2018 Farm-Bill-compliant and CDA-registered hemp farm in Colorado.

I love their motto

  • Rooted in science. 
  • Created with intention. 
  • Made with love.

BALANCE – Full Spectrum Massage Lotion 

Need to ease sore muscles, this is what you need!  It has the perfect amount of slip without being too greasy. It has organic almond oil to this formula to nourish and moisturize the skin as the CBD melts stress away from tight muscles anywhere on the body. This formula can be applied from the neck to the feet for a heavenly full body massage treatment.  Exactly what I need some days for my chronic pain.

Relieve – Full Spectrum Salve

My husband LOVES this Relieve Salve.  He had shoulder surgery last year, and it still is painful, but when he rubs this on his scar, it helps him a lot. He puts this on before bed and in the morning before work to help him cope with the pain. 

This salve goes on smooth and penetrates deeply. This formula gives skin a boost of hydration, from the organic hemp seed oil sealed in with beeswax, paired with full-spectrum CBD oil.

Rehab – Bath Bomb

I love me some baths, but when I use a BATH BOMB, it is 100% better. The REHAB – Bath Bomb has relaxing effects of CBD, kaolin clay, and natural Epsom salt. Take your bath to another level, and the price is fantastic for what it does. 

I listed some products I know (because I’ve tried them myself) that will help with daily discomfort of chronic pain- please always ask your DR too.  Here are a few more points I want to add that will help with your Chronic Pain!

  1. Have a support system- you need help and love!
  2. Every day is an adventure- good and bad
  3. Don’t get mad at people who don’t understand- they never will!
  4. Some days will be easier than others
  5. Manage your pain the way you feel and want to!

My Favorite Anti-Aging CBD Beauty Routine

A couple of years ago, if someone would have told me that I would be using CBD beauty products in my daily routine, I would have looked at them weirdly. Now I can’t see my daily routine with anything else- just saying! 

I use Moon Mother Hemp products because they are high-quality and the purest CBD beauty products around!  It is organic and all about healing for the well-being of the body and mind. The older I get, the more issues I have with my skin.  Having a good skin/beauty routine will help with the wrinkles and aging process. 

Remember, CBD skincare won’t get you high because it doesn’t have the mind-altering properties of marijuana’s tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. Moon Mother Hemp products are made from USDA certified organic Colorado-grown hemp. That is all good, but does it WORK- is what you want to know, right? 

Quality care from Seed to Sale

Moon Mother Hemp Products= Anti Aging CBD Beauty

Weekly

Use the Nourish Hemp & Manuka Honey Mask.  I use it 2x a week, but you can use it daily too!  In the 4 fl oz, there is 500 MG CBD. The mask is a reparative, nourishing, and mineral-rich mask that will leave skin hydrated and glowing. 

Okay, I’m over 50 years old and when my husband told me the other day I was glowing- do you know that made me melt.  So I’m all in for this anti-aging mask that does wonders on my face! I tend to use the mask at night as a way to relax but also great for the morning before you get ready for your day.  

Every Morning

Use the Glow Skin Serum.  This had to come from Heaven!  Glow Skin Serum is a daily moisturizer for all skin types. This nourishing and balancing union of herbs infused in jojoba oil, Argan Oil, Rose, and our full-spectrum hemp extract provides a therapeutic and beneficial experience to help your skin GLOW!. 

If you have never used a skin serum, you are missing out!  This skin serum, though, is something special. I love how the serum makes my skin feel so soft and does glow. It takes away the redness and the puffiness I seem to get a lot of but lately just beautiful glowing skin! 

Every Night

Use the Renew Eye Serum before bedtime.  This eye serum works wonders for my bags in the morning.  I love to look in the mirror in the morning these days. The 35 fl oz 100 MG CBD is the bomb.  

The smile lines and puffiness disappear, so yes, I love the anti-aging serum—no more tired-looking eyes for me. I do have to say this is my favorite product, and I was super surprised how well this works.

CBD Beauty Products are IN!

I need to be honest. I NEVER purchased natural and organic oral care products let alone using ones that contain CBD. I do have an eco-friendly toothbrush; but I use it with your basic brand name toothpaste. Sounds crazy & pretty backwards right? But it’s something I just started to look into. What I didn’t realize is that there are over 100 harmful and toxic ingredients in many of our oral care products.

Hemp Oil Vs CBD Oil

Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil… what is the difference?

There is a lot of people out there that have no idea there is a big difference. Like myself! The past couple years the “green rush” of cannabis products have been flooding the market.  A question I hear a lot is…Can you get high from the CBD or Hemp Oil?

No- you can’t get high from hemp or CBD hemp oil or CBD products.

There are two different cannabis plants one is non-psychoactive hemp and the other is psychoactive marijuana. I want to share with you what I’ve been using on myself and my family.

My Trip to the Local CBD Store

My Trip to a Local CBD Store

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

Although I’ve been using CBD for the past several months, I still can’t believe how much it is helping me. It reduces my anxiety and stress levels, improves my skin, and helps manage pain. While my CBD knowledge continues to grow, I still feel like there is a lot to learn. When I was given the chance to try out products from a local CBD store, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to interview the owners. I wanted to learn more about CBD in general, how the products are made, and who could benefit from using them.

Local CBD Store in Ocala

Since my dad lives not too far from Ocala, Fl I took him when dad I went meet with Michael Oliva, the owner of Your CBD Store Ocala. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I arrived. What exactly does a CBD Store look like? Would it have a drugstore feel or look like a doctor’s office? And what would my dad think about this whole CDB thing (more on that later)?

When we walked into Your CBD Store Ocala, we found a beautifully, designed boutique, with a spa-like feel. It was welcoming and modern and really well thought out. All of the different types of CBD products are well organized and easy to find.

Where does your CBD come from?

There are a lot of CBD products on the market, with more coming out every day it seems. But how much do we know about these products? The reality is, not all CBD is equal. Just because you can find it in-stores or online for a cheap price doesn’t mean it’s safe or effective. There is a reason the good stuff has a higher price tag.

If I’m going to put CBD on my body or in my body, I want to know where it comes from and what processes the manufacturer uses to ensure its efficacy and safety. I asked Michael about his CBD based products:

Your CBD Store Ocala

“We get all of our CBD from a farm in Colorado Springs. It is then sent to an FDA-approved facility in Tampa for extraction. We don’t use any chemicals in the process. We use a warm-based CO2 extraction, the most effective process for extracting CBD, to turn the solid product into a liquid form. The extraction process is performed twice. The second time removes any traces of THC.

“The product is then sent for third-party testing at a lab in either Gainesville, FL or Arizona. All of our testing results, for each product, can be found on our website or by scanning the QR code on some of our products. We do this to be completely transparent, so you know exactly what you are getting.”

This is one of the things that set Michael’s CBD store and products apart from others. They want to make sure people are getting the best products so they can experience the most benefit. The ability to be able to go online and see what’s in the product you’ve bought, as well as the lab test results, is both impressive and reassuring.

Finding the right CBD product

CBD can be used to relieve pain, anxiety, depression, migraines, nausea, addiction, insomnia, and seizures, just to name a few. For this reason, CBD products are offered in a variety of formats, from liquid to gummies. The choice for which product is right for you really depends on your lifestyle or needs.

Beauty and Wellness CBD Store Products

Michael’s CBD store offers several, including:

  • Vape cartridge, pen, and vape juice – this is ideal for anyone who deals with triggered anxiety or suffers from panic attacks. Vaping helps provide you with immediate anxiety relief
  • Gummies – these work great for anyone who has sleep issues. They metabolize throughout the night, so they help you fall and stay asleep. Gummies are a great alternative to RX sleep aids because they don’t give those crazy side effects
  • Water soluble (liquid and pill form) – this liquid form of CBD can be put in water, juice, tea, coffee, etc. It’s not as fast acting as vaping but you will begin to feel the effects within 5-10 min. The pill form provides the same relief/benefits as the liquid but takes a little longer to take effect because you have to metabolize it
  • Oil/Tinctures – a liquid form of CBD taken sublingually, or under the tongue, which is absorbed within 30-60 seconds. It’s available in a range of strengths to offer varying degrees of relieve for different conditions. Lower dosages are ideal for stress and anxiety, whereas higher doses are ideal for dealing with cancer pain, ALS, Parkinson, or chronic pain
  • Pet Products – available in treat form or tincture. They help to reduce anxiety, eliminate skin irritations, and other doggy-related health issues.
  • Beauty Products –  available in bath bombs (100 mg of CBD), body lotion, collagen cream, lip balm, and topical pain creams. These products help to soothe and calm the body, improve skin texture, reduce inflammation and encourage skin repair. They are also beneficial for treating eczema, wrinkles, fine lines, and arthritis

 

Trying out Some Local CBD Store Products

 Michael was kind enough to give me a goodie bag of products to try out. My dad also bought a tincture to try and I later ordered him the topical pain cream. Since our meeting, I’ve also bought myself a bottle of their water-soluble CBD. I’ve been using all of the products for a little over a month and they’ve become staples in my beauty and wellness routine.

 

Beauty

CBD Store Sunflora Beauty Products

Let’s first talk about the beauty products. I tried out the Body Lotion, Lip Balm, Collagen Cream, and bath bombs. All of which are now going to be must-haves in my beauty routine. The bath bomb does exactly what it should do, relax and calm. It was a real treat to my once a week, self-care, bubble bath. I will be ordering more very soon.

 

The Body Lotion and the Lip Balm are incredibly healing and soothing. After deciding to wear a pair of booties without socks all day, my feet were on the verge of blisters. I put some body lotion on my feet before I went to bed and woke up to feet that were no longer red or irritated. In other words, my skin loves this stuff. I will definitely be bringing the lotion and the lip balm on my upcoming Disney trip because I know my entire body will need the extra TLC.

 

I’m also enjoying the Collagen Cream. Since it contains Vitamin  E and Marine Collagen, I use it every other morning, as an alternative to my Vitamin C serum. It helps even out the tone and texture of my skin, as well as reduce dryness and soften fine lines.

 

Wellness

CBD Store Edible and Water Soluble products

Next up are the Hard Candies and Water Soluble CBD. First off, the candies taste amazing. You almost forget that they aren’t just a sweet treat, but also another way to take your CBD. These are great for on the go.

 

The Water Soluble CBD in Natural is something I use on a daily basis. I fill up the dropper and add it to my tumbler of water. Ingesting my CBD this way ensures I don’t forget to take it, while also giving me the benefits I need. It improves my overall health and reduces anxiety, stress, and fluctuations in mood. This is something I will continue to use because I notice a difference when I don’t.

 

I’m thankful that I was able to spend some time at Your CBD Store Ocala. Thanks to Michael, I feel like I have an even greater understanding of CBD; the manufacturing process, the variety of products available, and how it can truly benefit mental health, pain management, and general health.

 

If you have any questions or want product recommendations, you can reach out to Michael at ocala@cbdrx4u.com, or visit him at Your CBD Store Ocala, 500 SW 10th St. #107 Ocala, FL 34471, (352) 421-8865.

Can Hemp-Based CBD Products Help you?

Can Hemp-Based CBD Products help you_

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

As the legalization of medical/recreational marijuana expands throughout the US, more CBD products are becoming available to the consumer. This new movement has piqued my curiosity about the benefits of using hemp-based CBD products. How they can help? What different types of are available? Are there differences between products?

In addition to trying to find the answers to my questions, I’ve also been experimenting with balms, lotions, powders, and tinctures. Today, I’ll be sharing my insight after using the Curaleaf Hemp lotion and tinctures.

What is Hemp-Based CBD?

Before I talk about hemp-based CBD (cannabidiol), let me clarify one thing, CBD will not get you high. Why? Unlike marijuana, CBD doesn’t contain THC, which is the psychoactive that gives you the “high” feeling.

Hemp-based CBD - Curaleaf Infographic

Courtesy of Curaleaf

Curaleaf Hemp derives its CBD from cannabis sativa plants grown in Kentucky and Colorado. Interestingly enough, CBD is only one of the hundreds of compounds found in the plant.  In order to utilize this compound, Curaleaf Hemp puts its plants through a C02 extraction process, which takes place in Kentucky and Maine.

Before the hemp-based CBD products are delivered to your door or a Curaleaf location near you, they are tested by 3rd party labs. This testing ensures you are receiving the most effective, high-quality ingredients, which are free of toxins, such as pesticides. No matter what CBD products you are using, it is important to know where you CBD comes from and how it is tested. Remember, not all CBD is the same.

How can CBD help?

Hemp-based CBD products from Curaleaf

One of the reasons for the recent rise in hemp-based CBD popularity is its ability to benefit your body’s endocannabinoid system. This system contains receptors which regulate pain, mood, appetite, stress, memory, and the immune system.

When you take CBD, you encourage your body to use more of these receptors, which can help reduce pain, inflammation, and anxiety levels. Some studies have shown that CBD may be to help combat neurological disorders and even cancer.

Topical CBD Lotion

Hemp-based CBD products Menthol lotion

For a variety of reasons, I tend to suffer from neck and shoulder pain. The tension and pain tend to increase after long hours on the computer or when I hit my workouts hard. To treat this pain, I usually use an OTC anti-inflammatory. Occasionally, I will use OTC pain patches in an attempt to avoid taking too many anti-inflammatories, which can be damaging to your liver and digestion. As much as I love these patches, they can be a little challenging to use.

When I discovered CBD topical lotions, I was beyond excited. Topical CBD products typically come in creams, lotions, and even balms. You can use them to treat localized pain by applying the product directly to the skin. The result is fast-acting pain relief.

Hemp-based CBD Products Lotion swatches

I’ve been using the Curaleaf Hemp CBD Lotion in Menthol for a little over a month to relieve muscle pain and even menstrual cramps. This lotion contains full spectrum CBD oil, in addition to shea butter, argan oil, coconut oil, and aloe vera. It’s not only soothing to the skin, it really does a great job of relieving muscle and joint pain on contact and for several hours after application.

Each time I apply the lotion to my neck, shoulders, back, legs, or even lower stomach, I experience the relief I need. I no longer have to automatically reach for Advil or Tylenol, etc. CBD topical lotion has now become a staple in my muscle, pain relief arsenal.

CBD Tincture Drops

Another popular delivery method for hemp-based CBD is by mouth. It is believed that your body is better able to absorb and metabolize the effects of CBD when taken sublingually or orally.

Curaleaf Hemp offers five different types of tincture drops designed to help with digestion, muscle recovery, energy and focus, stress, and mood. The brand was kind enough to send me their Relieve and Revive drops to try.

Hemp-based CBD products Curaleaf tinctures

  • Relieve
    • A combination of 25 mg of natural derived hemp CBD, 0mg THC, refined coconut oil, hempseed oil, stevia, and lavender sweet orange essential oils
    • The anti-inflammatory benefits and calming properties of the essential oils, combined with CBD, help relieve muscle and joint pain
  • Revive
    • A combination of 25 mg of natural derived hemp CBD, 0mg THC, refined coconut oil, hempseed oil, stevia, and lemon bergamot essential oils
    • The blend of CBD and Vitamin C help improve energy and focus

Hemp-based CBD products tincture dropper

Both tinctures have a citrus flavor with an oily texture. They feature a 1 ML dropper which you use to take the product, either orally or topically. I personally only use the tinctures orally, once a day. While I haven’t had a chance to try the Revive tincture, I have been using the Relieve. (Note: In order to properly test out the tinctures in a timely fashion, I was only able to use one at a time. I will update this post after I finish using Revive.)

I definitely notice a difference in my muscle recovery when I use Relieve. As I mentioned above, I’ve been hitting my workouts a lot harder in the last few months, with the goal of working out six days a week.

Hemp-based CBD Products Tincture swatches

Since I’m not in my twenties, my muscles don’t recover as fast. Using Relieve, does help reduce my muscle and joint pain. It’s not a magical cure all, as my muscles are still sore. However, they are not as sore as they have been and I’m able to more effectively keep up my current fitness routine.

Final thoughts on CBD

CBD can provide you with many benefits, from reducing pain to boosting your mood. If you are considering trying out hemp-based CBD products, check out both the lotion and the tinctures from Curaleaf Hemp. They have both made a noticeable difference in my life.
