CBD newbies and veterans alike both know that CBD cream and CBD salve can be used for pain relief – but it can be hard to know just when to use it. In this article, we take a closer look at the different ways in which you can harness the power of CBD for pain relief.

When to use it?

One of the most important aspects of CBD pain relief is anticipating when the soreness is going to occur. You can certainly  use CBD Salve for Pain as soon as you notice discomfort, but getting ahead of the pain can sometimes be more effective. 

For example, if you always wake up in the middle of the night with a sore neck, apply some CBD Pain Relief Cream before you go to bed. Or if your muscles are consistently sore the day after leg training at the gym, try applying some Salve right after the workout, and then again before going to sleep that night. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference you’ll notice.

How to use it? 

First of all, to get the full list of benefits, it’s imperative to choose a high-quality hemp product with natural ingredients, like the nano CBD products that we at ICHOR offer. Nano CBD is top of the line because of the tiny particles it’s made of – they work faster and more efficiently than average CBD particles. 

Your skin should be clean before applying either the Cream or Salve. When using it, rub it in thoroughly for several minutes to get the full effect. Go slow, be patient, and massage the affected area gently. The massage itself can also help relieve any residual tension, especially when paired with the deep-reaching healing components of CBD. With such luxurious treatment, you won’t even remember what sore muscles feel like.

Know your body.

If your soreness is caused by a certain activity, like weight-lifting or sitting in the same chair for hours, give your body a break from those situations. Changing up your routine is more beneficial than you might think – for both your mind and your body. This way, you can relax and recover. Partnering this rest with a quality CBD pain relief product will do wonders. 

Drink lots of water – hydration is so important for a healthy body that feels good. It helps to flush toxins out of inflamed tissue and deliver much-needed nutrients more quickly. Because we’re beings that are composed of over 70% water, it’s important to keep our h2O levels up.

Along with drinking water, make sure to eat right. Damaged tissue needs protein to repair, and it can only get enough said protein through a well-balanced diet. 

CBD pain relief is meant only for temporary relief. If the pain persists, seek the opinion of a trusted medical professional.
