In the realm of wellness, self-care is an integral practice that nurtures both the body and soul. As the popularity of cannabis continues to grow, an exciting avenue for self-care has emerged: cannabis-infused topicals. Just because you can roll a joint, doesn’t necessarily mean you know what to use on your own joints. In this blog, we delve into the world of cannabis-infused topicals and how they can enhance your self-care routine, providing a natural and soothing way to nurture yourself from the outside in.
One of the standout features of infused topicals is their ability to provide targeted relief to sore muscles, joints, and areas of discomfort. Whether you're an active individual or are simply experiencing the stresses of daily life, a CBD-infused cream can work wonders. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, combined with the soothing effects of other natural ingredients, make for a potent formula to alleviate aches and pains. One we would recommend is our LivRelief - Extra Strength Transdermal CBD Cream | 50g, with a whopping 750mg of CBD. The whole LivRelief line is formulated with plant-based, natural ingredients with a very mild botanical scent, making it a great choice for those with sensitive skin. From personal experience these creams are non-sticky, and very rich so a little goes a long way. Massaging a pea sized amount onto sore areas should provide relief in minutes and should typically last for about 2 hours.
For muscle pain we would also highly recommend our Proofly - Muscle THC Body Cream | 100g. The Proofly body cream is formulated with 500mg of THC and menthol that may provide a fast-acting and long-lasting relief around muscle and joints. The other natural plant ingredients such as jojoba oil, babassu oil and cocoa butter are effective to keep the skin hydrated. Similar to other common creams using menthol the cooling effect on the skin should provide instant relief to sore, inflamed muscles. We also carry Proofly’s Warming CBD Massage Oil | 25g and Water-Based Unisex Lubricant | 25g, which you may want to use for self-care, but is best used with a partner - just saying.
Beyond its potential for pain relief, incorporating cannabis-infused topicals into your self-care routine can be an effective way to manage stress and anxiety. Our CBD/THC infused bath bombs and salts are a wonderful addition to your bath and can help you to decompress and practice mindfulness as you soak. Baths are renowned for their therapeutic effects on stress and anxiety due to their ability to promote relaxation and create a sense of calm. To multiply these effects, check out our Premium Bath Bombs from Stewart Farms - all of which include a 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC. Named after iconic strains like Blue Dream the bath bombs scents are inspired by the namesake’s terp profile. For example, Blue Dream’s dominant terpenes: myrcene, pinene, limonene, beta-caryophyllene and linalool are represented in the bath bomb via the pure essential oils of sweet orange, lemongrass, frankincense, black pepper & lavender. The aroma of these bath bombs are so unique and completely relaxing. Stewart Farms recommends letting the bomb dissolve behind your back to allow the oils to wrap around your body to get the most out of your bath.
