Why Is CBD Salve For Pain Relief So Popular?

There are several reasons why CBD salve is a popular option for people of all ages. New options in CBD salve for pain include the addition of menthol for cooling, arnica for deep tissue healing, and essential oils such as lavender to provide a calming effect. Many types of CBD salve also use coconut oil, which helps to moisturize and calm the skin as well as reduce discomfort.

Choose Your Scent

Many people find that over-the-counter pain creams and salves are heavily scented. These products can include a range of different natural and artificial scent ingredients that can be noticeable even from a distance.

CBD salves come in unscented and natural scents like lavender. These are ideal products for use after a workout or when you have to work or go out of the house. They do not have a heavy medicinal scent, making them an ideal addition to your workout and self-care routine.

Easy to Use

The best quality CBD salves come in a variety of strengths. It is a good idea to start with a lower strength option and increase only if necessary. Most people do not need professional strength or the high dosage CBD salves to experience some sort of relief.

These products are topicals, which means a small amount is massaged into the skin over the painful joint or muscle. The salve is fully absorbed by the skin, with no greasy residue or stickiness left on the skin’s surface.

For overall health and wellness, the CBD salve can be applied as necessary.

The Benefits Of CBD Cream For Pain Relief

Pain comes in many different forms. For some people, it is chronic pain that may be a symptom of arthritis or other types of musculoskeletal conditions. For others, pain is a result of working out or simply working, with repetitive movements or heavy lifting the source of the problem.

Regardless of the type of joint or muscle pain experienced, finding the right product to relieve the pain is always a priority. NSAIDs, over-the-counter pain killers, and even prescription pain medications often provide limited relief, and they also typically include a wide range of possible side effects.

CBD cream is typically an effective way to manage most types of discomfort. This is a cream or a balm that is rubbed over the area, resulting in reduced discomfort without any effects on the rest of the body.

How They Work

CBD creams for pain work best when they are a broad spectrum product. This means the CBD used in the product includes the full range of plant components. As CBD must contain less than 0.3% THC, there is no psychoactive or “high” associated with the use of any CBD products. These creams do contain all of the hemp plant’s phytocannabinoids, which work to help with inflammation within joints and tissue.

In addition to helping with inflammation, CBD is also linked to activating specific receptors in your brain. These receptors take up specific chemicals in the brain that are associated with the “feel good” chemicals in your body. While CBD does not specifically treat the underlying cause of the pain, it reduces the way receptors read the nervous system, providing relief. Sometimes even with chronic types of pain.

What to Consider Before Buying Pain Relief CBD

If you’re like millions of other Americans suffering from chronic or temporary pain, you might be considering natural CBD products as a solution. Many people have found CBD to be helpful in the management and mitigation of pain, though it’s not for everyone and it’s best to start small with your dosage and work your way up to a gradual increase as needed. Everyone’s body chemistry is different, and there are a lot of pain relief CBD products in the market, so how do you know what’s the right option for you? In this article, we’ll discuss some of the questions you should ask yourself before trying CBD for pain relief.

What Type of Pain Are You Experiencing?

Both temporary and chronic pain come in many forms and affect people of every age and physical condition. Pain will always negatively impact your quality of life, so it’s important to find the right solution quickly so you can enjoy the relief you deserve. Before you invest in a pain relief product, take a moment to assess the pain you’re in and think about what type of products have worked for you in the past. While some people may prefer pain relief salves and topicals, others may prefer tinctures, pain patches, or other forms.

Many people find relief from pain after using CBD pain relief and CBD recovery products. CBD has regularly been shown to act as an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant. Many people also agree that CBD is useful for managing anxiety and helping to produce a calming sensation. While it’s important to note that the CBD industry is not strictly regulated, the sheer amount of people across the world who report positive effects and pain relief after using CBD products can’t be ignored.

CBD Comes in Many Forms

Fortunately, if you’re dealing with pain on a regular basis, it’s comforting to know that CBD is available in a wide range of products. People suffering from localized pain and discomfort, or aches in their joints or muscles may find relief in CBD topicals and ointments. Others may benefit from cooling or warming pain patches, designed to soothe aches and pains for up to 8 hours after application.

CBD oil tinctures can also be effective in helping people better manage their pain. These products are available as a CBD isolate, full-spectrum extract, or broad-spectrum extract. Most people ingest the CBD from tinctures under the tongue for swift absorption. CBD is also available in sprays and roll-on gels.

3 Things to Know When Buying Wholesale CBD Oil

With the rising popularity of CBD oil, many dispensaries, CBD stores, smoke shops, fitness centers, and more are stocking up on the latest and most popular CBD Oil products. Fortunately for these businesses, there are several advantages to investing in wholesale CBD oil – you just need to keep these five important factors in mind when making the purchasing decision for your business.

Price, Value, and Shipping

Obviously, one of the most important areas to consider when purchasing wholesale CBD oil is to look at your supplier’s pricing and value. Ultra cheap products usually lead to low-quality, ineffective products. At the same time, extremely expensive products might not provide you with much of a profit margin. Instead, select products that are safe, effective, and made from ingredients you can trust. Shipping is also important. At Quiet Monk CBD, most of our wholesale orders ship within 4-5 business days.

Seek Family-Owned and Operated Suppliers

Like many of the modern world’s small, family-run businesses, the service and satisfaction you receive from family-owned, natural CBD product suppliers are second to none. Quiet Monk CBD is a family-owned and operated business that is dedicated to the success of our wholesale partners, and we’re committed to supplying you with the best possible wholesale CBD oil and white label products in the marketplace.

The Extraction & Manufacturing Process Matters

It’s no surprise that premium-grade CBD products start with quality farming and cultivation practices. In particular, pay close attention to how and where your supplier’s products are grown. It’s best to avoid suppliers that utilize a mixture of chemicals to extract CBD from the cannabis plant, as these chemicals are often absorbed into the CBD itself. At Quiet Monk CBD, all of our tinctures and base hemp extract products have a Certificate of Analysis to guarantee the product’s quality and effectiveness.

From wholesale CBD oil to CBD topical cream, hemp protein powder, and beyond, Quiet Monk CBD delivers the very best in products and signature service to our wholesale partners. Get in touch with our team today for questions about our products or for special wholesale pricing inquiries.

California Failed To Pass Legislation

We are disappointed to report that efforts have failed, for the time being, to pass legislation in California that would explicitly permit the retail sale of hemp-derived CBD as a dietary supplement, cosmetic, and food and beverage additive.

Due to intra-party fights that had nothing to do with legislation, (No surprise) the state Senate leadership refused to allow a vote on the legislative language, despite the Governor’s endorsement and the overwhelming bi-partisan support for hemp farmers and our industry.

However, Governor Newsom’s team agreed to immediately establish a policy of formal enforcement discretion, under which current retailers and manufacturers, operating in good faith compliance with current law, would be allowed to continue to sell and manufacture their hemp CBD products until a new law is enacted.

How To Enhance The Effects of CBD With Food

fish and cbd

But which foods Steve?

A couple of recent reports propose that taking CBD with food may be beneficial. But which foods boost the effects of CBD?  Well today we will look into that very question!

Low rates of bio-availability (Yes I had to look up the definition when someone was talking about bio-availability a few years ago lol – the proportion of a drug or other substance which enters the circulation when introduced into the body and so is able to have an active effect.) have led people to ask how can we increase CBD effectiveness.

Due to the fact CBD oils are popular in the mainstream and not just with the hippie culture of the 60’s, it was just a matter of time before researches figured out how to maximize absorption rates. And yes taking CBD with certain foods can improve its bioavailability.

Another reason to love chocolate!

One study proposed that a high-fat meal elevated blood levels of CBD by a factor of 14. Cannabinoids are fat-soluble, and so the presence of fat might help CBD move into the bloodstream.

To improve absorption, consider pairing your CBD intake with foods which are rich in healthy fats:

  • Olive or sesame oil
  • MCT oil, or coconut oil, which can improve the bio-availability of CBD (This is standard in our CBD oils that we make here)
  • Emulsified fats, such as those found in chocolate or mayonnaise (Yes, thank you! I wont feel guilty eating that Hershey bar now)
  • Nuts
  • Avocado (Just another reason for me to add more Guacamole to my burrito!)
  • Fish

Either eat your meal and then take your CBD drops or add the CBD oil to foods like oatmeal and smoothies.

What CBD Dosage Should I Give My Dog or Cat? – CBD Doses for Pets Explained

dog cbd dosage chart

Just like people the right amount of CBD will require a little testing and experimenting.

Are you giving it to your dog for anxiety, arthritis or other general pain relief? The right dosage is going to be determined by the size of your pet and how they respond to the dosage.

I always recommend starting with a small dosage. Add it a drop or two to a snack and then observe them for the next 30 to 60 minutes. If after an hour you don’t see a change then give them another snack with 2 more drops. Keeping track of how many drops you are giving them in total.

BASIC RULE: There are some basic dosage rules to follow to give you an idea of where to start: 1 to 5 mg of cbd for every 10 pounds your pet weighs.

For pain control and management: Once you have found the right dosage you could give it to them every 8 hours or as needed. For other uses once or twice a day is sufficient.

How To Make Peanut Butter CBD Dog Treats

Peanut butter cbd dog treats

Regardless of whether you’re in the process of training your fur baby or you want to give them treats to help with their everyday aches and pains this recipe is delicious

Peanut butter treats are appreciated by dogs all over the world and will also be the ideal beginning for your dog’s CBD journey.

For this particular recipe, you will need:

  •  ¼ cup of peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 3 cups flour (If your dog is gluten intolerant, you can use gluten-free flour as an alternative.)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2/3 cup of apple sauce
  • CBD oil (Pet or human cbd oil will work just fine)

SIDE NOTE: If you are using a human CBD oil please be sure it is all-natural (no flavorings, especially peppermint as that can sometimes irritate their stomachs) We of course have an all-natural CBD oil (shameless self-promotion) and a pet CBD oil. As for me I use the human cbd oil because it is more value for the money. But you can use the pet cbd oil as well, they just tend to be a lower milligram. On a side note the only difference between a pet cbd oil and a human one is that the human oil has to adhere to higher standards in the development process.

Amount of CBD Oil To Add: The amount you are going to add is going to be dependent on how much your dog weighs. I would start with 2 full droppers of a 1000mg oil. If you are using one of our 1000mg CBD sprays that would be 6 squirts. Thats about 60mg for the whole batch of treats you are making. Which depending how how big you make your treats could average out to about 6mg per treat if you made 10 treats.

Pet CBD dosage chart - how much cbd to give to pets

Once you have all the necessary ingredients gathered up you are ready to begin

Step 1 – preheat the oven up to 350 degrees

Step 2 – Add in the apple sauce, peanut butter, eggs and oils into a bowl

Step 3 – Slowly mix in the baking soda and flour to make a firm dough. Making sure that the flour is thoroughly combined into the mix.

Step 4 – Portion the dough into the size that best fits your pet. I like to roll it into small balls. Small enough to where if Shadow (that’s my dog) gulps it down she wont choke on it. But everyone knows their dog best so please do what’s appropriate for your fur baby.

Step 5 – Place the portions onto the cookie sheet and place in the oven for 15 minutes.


A few Tips

Avoid Toxic Ingredients – There are some ingredients that are poisonous to dogs. Raisins and chocolate especially.

Don’t give them all out at once – Its going to be delicious and they will beg for more. However, keep in mind that CBD should be consumed in moderation.

Keep an eye on their behavior – If you notice any changes in the health or behavior of your pooch, do not hesitate to give your veterinarian a call. Mine will usually just go lay down after, she gets very relaxed.
