What does CBD gel do?
CBD gel, similar to other Cannabidiol (CBD) products, is suggested to be able to relieve specific therapeutic needs, such as pain and tension in muscles. Working in the same manner as a muscle rub such as Deep Heat, or Ibruleve, CBD gel is an alternative therapy with natural ingredients.
CBD gel is absorbed transdermally (via the skin) and enters the blood system where it can affect any benefits it may have. The University of Kentucky in the US has run studies on CBD gel and transdermal Cannabidiol to test its efficacy. This was done on rats and was shown to elicit a pain relief and inflammation response.
Is CBD Gel Safe?
In tests, CBD gel and other CBD products have been shown to be well tolerated by users. The World Health Organisation released a full statement on alternative cannabis compounds, reinforcing the view that CBD gel can be considered to be safe for use.
CBD Gel vs Oil
When deciding between CBD gel vs Oil, the obvious differences are in how you take them.
For those with particular body-specific issues, the ancillary 'comforting' effect of rubbing or massaging a cooling gel directly into the problem area, can be calming for many. Similar to why some athletes prefer to rub pain relief gel onto a part of the body, compared to taking a painkiller orally.
In terms of speed of delivery, there is actually little difference, and the bioavailability of CBD gel absorbed transdermally is as high as from a CBD vape kit for example. As is evidenced in this study.
How to use CBD Gel
Each CBD gel muscle rub will have different dosing levels, and this will be as a result of their strengths and CBD concentrations. In the first instance, we suggest using the CBD gel, either as is required, or after a morning shower and a couple of hours prior to bed.
This makes CBD gel easier to take, than getting undressed in a cramped workplace cubicle!
CBD muscle gels are rubbed into the skin in a circular motion until the excess is no longer on your hands. Use approximately a bumblebee sized squirt for every 9 sq inches of skin surface area you are looking to massage into.
What's the best CBD Gel for muscle pain?
In our opinion, the best CBD gel for muscle pain, based on sales and general anecdotal comments, is the CBD Hive muscle and joint gel in the 700mg CBD format. It is both cooling and a stronger level than most on the market, which makes it the best bang for your CBD gel buck right now.
