Topical CBD products for inflammation and chronic pain relief have been all the buzz lately. Health and wellness has been gaining more mainstream popularity. With it, the quest for natural pain relief alternatives has won public attention. Pain comes in many shapes and sizes. Some causes are as mild as sore muscles after a gym sweat session. Others are more serious, stemming from countless different conditions. Regardless of the type or reason, a staggering number of adults in the US suffer with pain daily. It’s no wonder CBD products spark public interest. People are hungry to find methods of supporting their pain that could help decrease consumption of harsh, over-the-counter medications or dangerously addictive pharmaceuticals. The availability of topical CBD pain relief products for localized pain, (*cough* our Illuminent CBD Pain-Roller), makes the CBD route that much more appealing. It offers a new solution to the pain problem.
Why do people use topical CBD?
Picture this. You’re on a run. It’s your first run of 2019. The first of your new health journey. Your first run since your last (short lived) attempt at “fit life” (10 years ago now?). Needless to say, this is a big deal. Look out world, here you come. About ten minutes in you’re distracted by the hottie driving by. You end up tripping over the curb, and you guessed it… you face-plant (with about 7 witnesses). To top it off, now you’ve got swelling and a decent sprain. Now what?
A natural alternative?
A typical response to this situation might be something like… “Oh crap. Where’s the Ibuprofen at?” Followed by a week or so of pills around the clock. While we are (by no means) denying the power of modern medicine, isn’t a potential natural remedy worth exploring? One that (if desired) could be used in conjunction with your standard over the counter go to…One that may ultimately reduce the need for excessive medication consumption to quiet the pain?
Will topical CBD work for me?
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 50 million (20.4%) of adults in the US report chronic pain, with about 19.6 million (8%) suffering from “high-impact chronic pain” – where pain intensity interferes with the ability to engage in necessary activities of day to day life (source). And while accidents and injury are a common cause of pain, there countless health conditions that leave people searching for relief.
Some types of chronic pain include:
- Lower back/sciatica pain
- Menstrual pain
- Arthritis pain
- Plantar fasciitis pain
- Headache/migraine pain
- Fibromyalgia pain
- Multiple sclerosis pain
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) pain
Treating chronic pain
Many doctors prescribe narcotics or suggest over the counter medications when treating chronic pain. Our hope is that you give topical CBD a shot too. Topical CBD is applied externally to target pain areas. The active ingredients absorb through the skin to provide localized support for pain, inflammation and irritation; potentially decreasing the need for excessive pain medication. For those of us suffering from chronic pain, this can be a game changer.
What’s the deal?
Combining 250 mg of Illuminent full spectrum CBD oil with organically grown botanicals, therapeutic grade essential oils (such as Copaiba), and just the right amount of menthol, the Illuminent Topical Pain Roller can help roll your pain away. For external use only, our pain roller delivers targeted relief directly where it is applied.
Why full spectrum?
Illuminent Full Spectrum CBD products contain a majority of the hemp plant’s flavonoids, terpenes, fatty acids, and cannabinoids (including trace amounts of THC within the federal guidelines of 0.3%). These elements work together to create an “entourage effect.” Meaning they work synergistically to provide support for a wide variety of ailments. The entourage effect is specifically known for its ability to support chronic pain.
