Today I’m excited to introduce you to the first of two products I’ll be reviewing by CBD Pure, being their CBD infused cream, ideal for achy muscles and joints.
They also offer a 100% money back 90-day guarantee, so confident are they of their product range.
How Much CBD Do You Get?
One thing I would like to instantly give credit to is their third party lab testing.
While getting a lab report is an absolute necessity (otherwise I wouldn’t include the review on my website), many brands don’t opt to pay for the pesticide testing or heavy metal testing, largely because this is simply an added cost and not everyone will be looking at this level of detail (I’m the one that moans for this info).
Fortunately, they’ve made the extra effort and you can find all this out for every product they sell within the certificate of analysis.
Of course, I’m very happy to say that this product passed all the tests for microbiology, pesticides and heavy metals.
Per 90g, 500mg of CBD were found in Batch 754525, along with 3mg of CBC and 5mg of THC.
CBC, or cannabichromene, is a cannabinoid that works well in combination with THC and CBD, while we’re seeing an increasing number of interesting studies on how this might be useful for you, with various studies in place.
Why Include White Willow Bark?
Willow bark has been used throughout history in order to treat pain and inflammation as far back as ancient Greece, while it is commonplace in traditional Chinese medicine.
The bark from the white willow tree are used as a natural remedy, often given to people suffering from lower back pain, so if you’ve just finished a hard workout and want to ease those tired muscles then this is a great option.
I recently injured my lower back while carrying out a full ice box into the garden for a party we were having, so this proved very useful.
Why Include Menthol?
That notable scent you get the moment you open the top and break the seal is the minty aroma of menthol.
One of the most prominent ingredients on the packaging, menthol is commonly included in muscle and joint solutions, working as a counterirritant and helping the skin to feel cool.
Menthol can help by increasing blood flow to the sensitive area, helping to speed up recovery.
Why Include Apricot Kernel Oil?
I mention menthol and plenty of people will say ‘sure, as you’d expect’, but if I mentioned they’ve included prunus Armeniaca kernel oil, you might look a little more confused.
This is the most commonly cultivated species of apricot you’ll find in the world, while the name comes from its origin, Armenia.
Most commonly included in creams to help moisturise the skin (a nice added benefit) as well as reducing fine lines thanks to the presence of Vitamin C and E, apricot kernel oil is also known to help ease enflamed muscles and joints, making it an ideal addition.
How Did It Feel?
After application, you can feel that tingly feeling within 2-3 minutes that I now associate with muscle creams and lotions.
I applied a pea sized amount onto my hands and rubbed right into my lower back, before washing my hands. I’d recommend rubbing it into the area for 20-30 seconds in order to ensure it’s properly absorbed sufficiently.
The cream easily rubs in and doesn’t leave that greasy residue that some do, which was a nice relief.
After a couple of days of use, I found the minor injury to my lower back did feel a lot calmer, whether that’s a combination of the cream and plenty of rest.
Where Can I Buy This From?
You can order the CBD Pure Muscle & Joint Formula from their website for $39.99, while they also offer a discount if you order in bulk, benefiting from economies of scale, with 3 tubes available for $99.99 ($33.33 per tube) or 6 for $169.99 ($28.33 per tube).
