If like me you suffer frequently from aches and pains and are looking for topical pain relieving products, then read on. In today's post I bring to you three fantastic CBD based topical products that help manage pain.

Walker & Morland Relieve Warming Balm

Walker & Morland offers a comprehensive line of high-quality, lab-tested wellness products that harness the natural power of CBD and provide calming respite & recovery to support active lifestyles.

They are a member of the Tenacious Labs family which is an international consumer products group that champions emerging plant-based ingredients.

Walker & Morland Relieve Warming Balm

Featured in this post is Walker & Morland's Relieve Warming Balm which is a botanical blend made with CBD oil, Shea butter and dried eucalyptus. It comes in a roller form and is an intense, heating balm that helps care for tired muscles and joints. 

Some of the key ingredients in the balm are Cocoa Seed Butter, Shea Butter, Peppermint Oil, Eucalyptus Leaf Oil, Camphor, Menthol, Cajeput oil, Clove leaf oil, Cinnamon oil and extract of the dried fruit of the Cayenne pepper.

You need very little amount of the product. Just apply an even layer on the painful areas and gently massage into the skin. I was surprised by how strong the balm was and the heating sensation it generated on application. I could almost feel the warm tingling. It has worked well for my arthritic pains.

Priced at £38, the Walker & Morland Relieve Warming Balm is available to buy from

Press Pause Soothe Comforting CBD Body Balm 

Founded by Dawn Fable, Press Pause have always prioritised high standards for their sustainability pledge, taking a critical eye to their packaging, sourcing, and shipping practices. 

Press Pause (like Walker & Morland) is also a part of the Tenacious Labs family, the pioneering cannabinoid group that's paving the way for the CBD industry. 

Featured in this post is Press Pause's Soothe Comforting CBD Body Balm which is packed with 50mg of full-spectrum CBD, soothing essential oils (Grape Seed Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter, Coconut Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Rosemary Leaf Oil, Peppermint Oil, Cyprus Leaf Oil, Fennel Seed Oil, Cinnamon Leaf Oil) and Camphor.

Press Pause Soothe Comforting CBD Body Balm

It is a highly concentrated formula that is perfect for spot treatment and smaller aches and pains. So, is you have headache or joint ache, you can use this balm for targeted pain relief and to help alleviate any tension or stress anywhere in the body. 

A top tip shared by Press Pause is to use the balm after a warm shower or bath while your pores are still open. This is so that the balm penetrates through the pores and activates the cannabinoid receptors located throughout the skin.

The balm is a hypoallergenic formula featuring clean beauty ingredients and is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. The product does not contain any formaldehyde, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, PEGs, talc, PFAs & PFCs, resorcinol, parabens or artificial ingredients.

The balm has a lovely texture that melts into the skin without leaving any residue. And because it is a concentrated formula you only need a small amount for each application. I have used it to target small areas of pain on the body and it works very well; especially for tension headaches.

Priced at £45.00 for a 15ml jar, the Soothe Comforting CBD Body Balm can be purchased online from

Unwind Muscle Rub from Cannabotech

Cannabotech is a biomedical firm that uses the combined force of nature and science to address health challenges. It focuses on the as-of-yet-untapped benefits of cannabinoids and medicinal mushrooms. 

According to their website, they are

"One of the first biomedical companies to marry traditional Asian knowledge with modern science to create their proprietary, patent-pending M²CBD formula, a synergy blend of functional mushrooms and high-quality cannabidiol (CBD). This unique combination targets the endocannabinoid system and immune system for a holistic solution to promote a balanced mind and body. They have further enhanced the formulas with complementary evidence-based botanicals and minerals so you can get the premium support you need from the botanical pharmacy."

Featured in this roundup is the Unwind Muscle Rub from Cannabotech. It has been designed to work together with massage to help relax tight muscles and unclench knotted tissue.

Unwind Muscle Rub from Cannabotech

The muscle rub contains a blend of high-quality functional mushrooms (including Chaga, cordyceps and reishi), to support the immune system and to help strengthen the stamina for better sports performance and recovery. Also included in the rub is premium pharmaceutical-grade, isolated CBD to help strengthen the endocannabinoid system for homeostasis in the body.

This simultaneous targeting of both the immune system and the endocannabinoid system creates a supercharged effect on the user's health being.

Some of the key ingredients in the muscle rub include:

  • Chaga - this mushroom has been found to have a positive effect on physical and sports performance, helping to support stamina and endurance by supporting oxygen flow.  
  • Cordyceps - this mushroom is effective in reducing fatigue and improving energy use (via better respiratory and cardiovascular responses). Cordyceps can stimulate vasodilation (widening of blood vessels along with increased blood flow), and promote efficient oxygen use in tissues. 
  • Reishi - this mushroom has been traditionally used to help with fatigue and muscular disorders and is said to reduce stress and modulates immune functions.
  • CBD - helps treat temporary muscle soreness, has anticonvulsant properties, reduces muscular inflammation, restores functional autophagy and positively enhances muscle function.

The muscle rub comes in a pump bottle dispenser and when applied, you can feel a slightly warm tingling sensation. I have been using this for tight neck muscles (due to prolonged hours on the computer) and it works wonderfully well. Just a little bit of the muscle rub, gently massaged into the neck and it relaxes and soothes the tense muscles. It has a pleasant and mild menthol fragrance and gets easily absorbed into the skin. It is a lovely product that gives relief from sore, tight muscles.

If you are looking for a holistic approach to treating tight muscles, give the Cannabotech Unwind Muscle Rub a try.

It is priced at £79 for 50 ml and can be purchased online from
