You deserve products that fit into your life seamlessly and maximize your comfort, happiness, and quality of life. There are perks and challenges of older adulthood, but our Hemp Relief Salve is a long-lasting, full spectrum CBD moisturizing salve that soothes pain and promotes healthy and hydrated skin while smelling like the inside of a spa.
In this article, you will learn why hemp and CBD are used in this salve, their benefits, and how to maximize your experience using it.
What is Hemp
The foundation of our Relief Salve is hemp. Hemp oil is an extraction made from the whole cannabis Sativa plant. Hemp oil is different from hemp seed oil, which is made solely from the seeds of the plant.
Since it is a plant, hemp occurs naturally and is not synthesized or artificially manufactured. Hemp plants are distinguished from marijuana plants as they have been bred to contain less than 0.3 percent THC (the chemical in marijuana that induces a high). This is why hemp is non-intoxicating and will not give you a high. Hemp has numerous benefits for the body and the mind.
What is CBD
The hemp oil in our Relief Salve is a full spectrum CBD oil. Also known as cannabidiol, CBD oil is a chemical compound within the cannabis plant that acts as a popular homeopathic remedy to promote wellness and reduce discomfort.
It is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant and diluting the extract with some other natural oil like sunflower or jojoba. This CBD extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalk of the plant is rich in a variety of properties that can soothe pain and have an abundance of health benefits.
What Does Full Spectrum Mean?
It can be difficult to know what to look for when shopping for health products like hemp and CBD. When you are looking for these health products, you may want to look for a label that advertises a full spectrum hemp ingredient. Full spectrum hemp is a cannabidiol (CBD) that contains the full makeup of components -- cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and trace amounts of THC -- found in the cannabis Sativa plant, hence the term “full spectrum.”
This allows you to take full advantage of all the wellness-promoting benefits of hemp! Full spectrum CBD utilizes what experts refer to as “the entourage effect,” meaning that all the components are shown to work together in a synergistic effect that has been shown to magnify the wellness benefits of CBD.
Our Hemp Relief Salve is derived from 100% US-grown hemp. Our relief salve also contains 500 milligrams of full spectrum CBD per jar, as well as lavender and eucalyptus.
By using full spectrum CBD in our Hemp Relief Salve, you’ll benefit from the high concentration of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that lead to the pain relieving and soothing properties of full spectrum CBD oil.
Benefits of Our Hemp Relief Salve
Below are some of the specific ways our full-spectrum CBD Relief Salve can benefit you and promote your overall health and wellness.
Benefits for Pain
One of the biggest and most popular uses of hemp and CBD is to soothe pain. From joint pain, chronic pain, inflammation, and more, CBD products may provide a gentle yet long-lasting form of pain relief. Hemp and CBD are packed full of antioxidants. One of the benefits of antioxidants is that they can reduce inflammation.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NBCI), inflammation is the source of all pain. Every time you feel pain in your joints, muscles, or other organs, it is due to some inflammatory factor present in the pain sensation. So, by treating inflammation, we can target pain at its source. The properties of hemp contribute to soothing and reduction in discomfort. Using our Hemp Relief Salve may bring about the joint pain relief you are seeking!
Benefits for Immune Health
Another important quality of CBD oil is its benefits for our overall wellness. The omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids packed inside hemp promote immune health, in addition to heart health, and better circulation. In addition to omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, hemp is loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants are known to be a key element in a healthy immune system!
Benefits for Mobility
As we age, our bodies may have a harder time keeping up with our active lives. Oftentimes, this is due to joint pain. Due to the properties in hemp and CBD that can help ease swelling and pain, many people find they are able to get back to doing the things they love with the support of CBD oil.
Benefits for Incontinence and Skincare
Over one-third of adults 65 and over struggle with urinary incontinence. Despite the modern move towards awareness and support when it comes to UI, there seems to be a lack of skincare products to help with its challenges. For instance, urinary incontinence can lead to poor skin health as you might develop a rash, dry skin, or severe chafing around your genitals, buttocks, and perineum. Fortunately, hemp is specifically known for its intense moisturizing properties when it comes to skin. Our Hemp Relief Salve can be used as a barrier as well as hydration if you have chafing from urinary incontinence.
The wide range of physical restoration that hemp and CBD can promote is reason enough to invest in these products. However, there are also mental benefits of using hemp and CBD!
Benefits for The Brain
Research published by Surgical Neurology International (SNI) shows that CBD is rapidly distributed and easily passes the blood-brain barrier. This characteristic is therapeutic for brain function and helps protect the brain while also signaling for pain relief. In addition to CBD’s gentle effect on our brains, it also has neuroprotective properties. In other words, CBD can promote healthy brain function and support healthy cerebral circulation.
Because of its high concentration of antioxidants, both hemp and CBD are effective protection against free radicals as well. If we have too many free radicals in our bodies, they can induce oxidative stress, which can cause damage to our neurons and increase the risk for certain diseases. Hemp and CBD have been shown to protect our brains against these free radicals and thus promote our brain health.
Benefits for Stress, Anxiety, and Relaxation
Probably the most known mental benefit of hemp and CBD is its stress-relieving properties. As an older adult, stress can be a big challenge in your everyday life. You may worry about your health, your children, or your future. Because of its high concentration of omega-6 and omega3 fatty acids, hemp oil is known to support mental health and stress management. It is also known to be an effective agent in reducing anxiety and promoting feelings of calmness.
The physical benefits of hemp oil and CBD can also promote feelings of happiness. For instance, hemp and CBD can soothe joint pain and promote mobility and flexibility. The more pain relief you experience, the more active you can be. You may be able to partake in some of the things you missed out on when you suffered joint pain. This could include gardening, walking, or playing with your grandchildren.
When and How to Use Our Hemp Relief Salve
Our Hemp Relief Salve can be used anytime your skin feels dry, cracked, or when your joints or muscles feel sore or inflamed. Anywhere you feel pain, you can massage the salve into the area and experience relief.
Our hemp relief can be used in any external place (avoid contact with the eyes). Apply a small amount of the salve on an affected area and massage gently until completely absorbed by the skin. Store our salve in a cool, dry place until the next use.
Things to Know
Before taking a new supplement or product, you should always speak to your physician as it may interfere with any suspected health conditions or medications you might be taking.
