Sore, tired muscles? Maybe you have pushed yourself that bit too hard at the gym or in the pool. Perhaps you have pulled or strained something. Or maybe you have just had a really hard day at work and your body wants you to know all about it.
We are all prone to stiff muscles and soreness from time to time and not all of us have the spare time to spend at the spa or can afford to treat ourselves to a relaxing massage.
The next best thing to a good pummelling on a massage bed, Holland & Barrett CBD Muscle Balm Ultra contains a soothing blend of 100% natural ingredients picked for their calming, relaxing properties.
Enriched with CBD, this muscle recovery balm does not just relax, it nourishes the skin at the same time, aids circulation in affected areas and provides the ideal basis for a localised self-massage, helping to loosen muscles and ease aches.
This product is not intended for use by persons under the age of 18.
What is CBD?
One of many active compounds found in the cannabis plant, CBD is the non-psychoactive substance found in oils, creams and vape liquids.;
It is also often used in gummies or pills, allowing you to choose a CBD product based on preference, potency and use.
Unlike THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, using CBD products will not result in a high.
Benefits of CBD balm
Because it is a relatively new product to the market, research into CBD effects and CBD benefits are limited. However many people love CBD for its soothing qualities.
With its warming and cooling effect, Holland & Barrett Muscle Balm Ultra can help to induce that feeling of calm and wellness you experience during a massage while also nourishing and soothing the skin naturally.
Meanwhile the pleasantly herbal scent of this balm may also create a sense of ease, helping you to relax and unwind.
A balm like Muscle Balm Ultra is also an easy way to enjoy the benefits of CBD, for those who struggle with the taste of oils or find other forms a little too strong.
How do I get the most out of CBD Muscle Balm Ultra?
While you may be tempted to quickly rub this balm into a sore shoulder or calf, the most benefits are gained by taking your time to wind down. This is especially true where tired and aching muscles are the result of a stressful event.
Take a long bath or shower before applying your balm, beginning the process of relaxing with the restorative powers of hot water in a quiet room.
You may even choose to open the balm in the bathroom while you bathe, letting the soothing aroma surround you.
Once you are dry, applying just a little balm, warmed in your hands to let it melt, will create a warming sensation in the affected area.
Massage as firmly as you like, using circular motions to ease stiffness and discomfort, adding just a little more balm as it begins to soak into the skin.
