Topical pain relief products with CBD


Topical pain relief products are designed to be absorbed through the skin and provide relief from discomfort, soreness, or inflammation in muscles, joints or other body parts. They are often used as a first-line treatment for mild to moderate pain and can be an alternative to oral pain medications, which may have systemic side effects. Topical pain relief products can include creams, gels, lotions, oils, balms or even transdermal patches.

Topical pain relief may not be as potent as oral medications, and their efficacy can vary depending on the individual and the specific cause of pain. But they come with several advantages like targeted relief, reduced systemic side effects and ease of use. They are also suitable for people who have difficulty swallowing pills or have gastrointestinal issues.

CBD (cannabidiol) has gained popularity as a potential remedy for various health conditions, including pain relief. When used in topical products, CBD is applied directly to the skin to target specific areas of pain or inflammation. CBD topicals come in various forms, including creams, lotions, balms, salves, and patches. Each form may have different formulations and concentrations, so it's essential to choose a product that suits your needs and preferences.

In this roundup, we have featured three different types of CBD topicals - a gel, a balm and a massage oil. Take a look!

Honey Heaven Full Spectrum CBD Balm

Honey Heaven was established in 2015 with the goal of bringing health and pleasure to people's lives. As the name suggests, their key product range is honey but they later started stocking herbal teas and CBD based products as well. All Honey Heaven CBD products comply with strict UK legislation and are legal for sale in the country.

Honey Heaven's organic CBD balm has been specially formulated for targeted topical application to areas of pain and discomfort. Unlike inhalation or digestion, this balm is absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream, providing a convenient option for CBD usage. It's ideal for those who prefer not to use the under-the-tongue method or face ingestion challenges with CBD.

There are 4 CBD balms in the collection currently:

  • Full Spectrum CBD Balm Organic Hemp High Strength 1000mg
  • Full Spectrum CBD Balm Organic Hemp Extra Strength 2000mg
  • Full Spectrum CBD Balm Eucalyptus & Peppermint
  • Full Spectrum CBD Balm French Lavender

We have featured the Full Spectrum CBD Balm French Lavender in this post.

The Honey Heaven Organic CBD Balm combines Supercritical CO2 extracted CBD oil paste and pure CBD Distillate with natural ingredients like virgin hemp, fractionated coconut oil, beeswax and Vitamin E oil.

The organic beeswax acts as a thickening agent, ensuring a non-greasy and easy-to-apply consistency. This balm effectively seals in CBD and moisture from the carrier oils without clogging pores, leaving a light and comfortable feeling on the skin.

Honey Heaven Full Spectrum CBD Balm and Massage Oil

Using Honey Heaven's Hemp CBD Balm is simple:

  •     Take a small amount and apply it to your fingertips or the palm of your hand.
  •     Thoroughly massage the balm into the affected area.
  •     Reapply as needed.

For best results, target the most common areas of application, such as the forehead, crown of the head, temples, and pulse points like the neck or wrists. This targeted approach allows the CBD to work directly at the site of the problem. 

I liked this balm and and use it mainly for neck pain.

Honey Heaven Luxury CBD Massage Oil UK Face & Body Full Spectrum 500mg (Eucalyptus & Peppermint)

Next up we have a luxury CBD Massage Oil also from Honey Heaven. This organic CBD Massage Oil is especially beneficial for muscles and joints. It has the added benefit of not Honey Heaven's Full Spectrum CBD oil, but also the natural pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties of Eucalyptus and Peppermint making this oil effective at relieving muscle and joint pain.

The scent of eucalyptus and peppermint also helps to promote relaxation and reduce stress and anxiety levels, making this a popular choice for massage therapy.

My mum loved this massage oil. The oil has a gentle formulation that gets absorbed easily without leaving a heavy or sticky residue on the skin. She uses it mainly on her knees and legs as it seems to help with managing her muscle and joint pain issues.

HEMPE Ice Muscle & Joint Gel

Finally we have a powerful CBD ice gel from HEMPE that gets top points from my mum.

Infused with a blend of Cannabidiol (CBD), Mint, Pine, Menthol and Laurel, this gel ensures swift absorption, providing rapid and long-lasting relief from muscle and joint pain, tension and inflammation.

The cooling formula of the gel deeply penetrates the skin delivering the active components directly to the targeted deep tissue layer helping with muscle and joint pain. The invigorating icy effect provides relief for sore, stiff and strained muscles and joints. There is a pleasant tingle on application and the gel encourages better circulation.

HEMPE Ice Muscle & Joint Gel

Unlike oral remedies that need to be processed through the digestive system and affect the entire body, this topical cooling CBD relief acts rapidly and specifically targets the affected area. Whether it is ankle pain or a stiff neck or even minor sports injuries, the HEMPE Ice Gel is suitable for all situations. A fab product!

If you prefer hot therapy then you could give HEMPE CBD Hot Muscle and Joint Gel a try.
