CBD muscle balm is another of the wonderful wellness products on the market that have been enriched with CBD extract.
These balms usually also include other natural extracts and oils in them, to nourish and soothe aching muscles.
Skip this bit if you already know about CBD!
CBD is an endocannabinoid naturally sourced from Cannabis Sativa (hemp plant), which are usually grown for nutritional purposes.
To make CBD oils and extracts, the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant are made into a paste and the CBD is extracted, hemp seeds are a secondary source.
While you may have heard about the benefits of ingesting CBD before, using a muscle balm is probably going to work differently to your regular CBD oil.
CBD balms have their own unique benefits, like:
Like to get some bang for your buck? This CBD Muscle Balm Extra provides extra-strength CBD extract without breaking the bank.
Each pot contains 50mg of CBD sourced from 100% natural hemp CBD-rich hemp extract along with a blend of other soothing ingredients, like:
So, as you can imagine, this CBD muscle relaxant smells pretty good!
Use this lightweight formula to help relieve and calm tired muscles by massaging it into any area that needs soothing and make circular motions with your hands and fingertips to aid circulation.

“Great balm to use on my hands after strenuous days’ work laying patios, definitely notice in the morning when I haven’t remembered to use this before bed”
A lot of CBD muscle balms and regular muscle balms tend to have a very strong minty / menthol scent, but what if you don’t like that? Grass & Co. muscle balm has got you sorted!
This CBD muscle rub is less minty, and smells more like your normal skincare products with ingredients like:
Anonymous – The truth – 5/5 stars
"It works! I never believed it would but it really does"
Patrician – CBD muscle balm: relaxer to the muscle – 5/5 stars
“This is the second time I have used this muscle balm and I have found it to be very soothing and relaxing to the areas of my body where I have massaged it in, a worthy purchase.”
This muscle balm is for those of you that either have tried balms with a lower dosage before and want an upgrade or you’re simply the type of people who don’t do things by halves!
Each tub contains a hefty 300mg of hemp-derived CBD paired with other soothing ingredients like:
Kyu welch – CBD for martial arts – 5/5 stars
“Use the balm before I train in my MMA. It gives me a relaxing sensation as I warm up and train... Also use it after the training for sore muscles. I give all the cbd range 100%”
Northernnan – At last !!!!! – 5/5 stars
“Wonder product...wish I'd found it years ago...given me new lease of life...”
Ok, so technically this isn’t a CBD muscle balm… but hear us out.
Already tried all the muscle balms going and found your ultimate favourite, but want to try a CBD out?
Before you shelf your current muscle balm and switch to CBD, maybe you could come to a compromise and use a CBD cosmetic enhancer like this one instead.
Simply add a few drops of ADD CBD to your existing muscle balm and you get the best of both worlds!
If you love the upgrade, then you could also add it into your face creams, body washed, hand creams, face masks and pretty much any beauty product – handy, eh?
