The Fay Farm CBD Muscle Rub – Review and Give Away!

“This is a sponsored post for The Fay Farm CBD Warming Muscle Rub. I have been compensated through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. All opinions remain my own and I was in now way influenced by the company.”

I’ve never had a review or give away on my blog before, but when The Fay Farm asked me to try their Warming CBD Muscle Rub I thought, “Hey, that sounds really interesting!  I bet my readers would love it.”

The rub was created by the co-owner for his mother who has Rheumatoid Arthritis, he told me that has allowed her to sleep through the night.  I thought that was pretty cool, and so very nice.

I received my package a little over a month ago and I’ve been giving the Warming CBD Muscle Rub a try.  I had been out for a bit the day I got the package and my neck was causing me a lot of pain, so I decided to try it out right away.  I was very shocked when I put it on and the pain got better.  Did it go away?  No.  But it got better!  That’s a big thing for me.

I have degenerative discs in my neck, it has really been acting up lately and the pain from it has been more intense than normal.  The pain is sharp, burning, stinging; all kinds of fun.  It also causes the muscles surrounding that area to become very tense, of course intensifying the pain.  The rub worked very well on the muscle pain, the pain right at the discs bit.

CBD oil is a key ingredient in cannabis (marijuana). Unlike THC (the ingredient in cannabis that gets you “high”), CBD does not cause a ‘high’. While this makes CBD a poor choice for recreational users, it gives the chemical a significant advantage as a medicine.  CBD can come from regular cannabis plants or plants harvested for hemp.  The CBD oil that comes from hemp is legal. The CBD oil that comes from regular cannabis plants is not legal in most states.  The CBD oil found in The Fay Farm Warming Muscle Rub is hemp oil.  Read more about Hemp Oil, here.

The organic ingredients are Sunflower, castor, herb- infused olive oil, beeswax, shea butter, menthol, camphor, 50mg CBD oil, cayenne pepper, arnica, essntial oils of rosemary, eucalyptus, peppermint, ginger, cassia, and clove.

From the ingredients I saw that most have some properties that can help relieve pain, like arnica and the cayenne pepper, ect.  I’ve tried Arnica and things like Icy Hot, Capsacium cream or Tiger Balm… and thought they didn’t help as much as this CBD Muscle Rub..  During the past month I’ve tried Arnica and Tiger Balm again just to make sure, and yes The Fay Farm’s Warming CBD Muscle Rub does help me more than either of those.  I even tried my prescription Voltaren Gel and felt the warming CBD rub helped more. I can really smell the cloves and other essential oils.  Some might find the smell a bit strong, but I found it much more pleasant than things like Icy Hot.  (I have to note here, I’m very sensitive to smells, this is a bit strong to me, but it isn’t artificial or really stinky, I haven’t had a problem with it.  Hubby says it’s a light sent, he also agrees it’s not offensive.  We both kinda like the smell.)

The rub is softer in viscosity than I thought it would be just looking at it. I thought it would have the consistency of petroleum jelly, but it is softer, smoother.  When I first got it I put my fingers in to get some and I got a lot more than I intended.    Now that I know the consistency it is very easy for me to use.  I’m glad it doesn’t come in a tube because I never feel like I get all of the ingredients out of a tube, and if I happen to get too much on my finger I just scrape my finger over the side and put it back in the tin.  You can’t do that with a tube.

Will it work for you, well only you can decide that, and since you are one of my readers you can receive 10% off your entire order and free shipping (in the U.S. only) by mentioning “Picnic” or “Ants” in the comments when you order you products!  (When you add everything you want in your basket, just add ‘picnic’ or ‘ants’ in the comment section of the order form and you will get 10% off.)  Yes, you get to take 10% off your whole order, not just CBD products, and the offer doesn’t expire.  How cool is that??

I hope you enjoy the rub as much as I have, or more!

  1. This natural warming rub sounds like just the ticket for myself and my husband. We both suffer from chronic pain and we love natural products. I am especially excited that it has a property of cannabis. I have wanted to try that.

  2. Wow! That does sound interesting. I hurt all over all the time, but I think I would use it on my hands. I’m starting to get arthritis in my thumbs now. I’d be lost without my hands and they were one of the few places I didn’t have much pain–that and the top of my head–LOL! Sweet of them to do this and you to do the give away. 🙂

    • Wen, It doesn’t get as hot/cold as Icy Hot. The warming effect is mild, but the pain relief last much longer than that. I don’t really know how long it last because I tend to do more once I put it on and that increases my pain levels. I will put it on 3-4 times a day, just a thin film rubbed in good. Or hubby rubs puts it on, my pain is where I can’t reach very easily. 🙂

  3. Do we say “picnic” or “ants” here? I’ve tried just about everything – including a new tube of voltaren. I, too have discs in my neck and back that are degenerating. Mostly i can’t place where the pain is because it all connects. I did talk to someone recently about the CBD oil and thought it would be good to try. Add aging into the mix and it seems to be downhill all the way from here – but I won’t let it stop me! But I would like to enter your giveaway. That is very thoughtful of you.

    • SonniQ…if you go to The Fay Farm’s site, the link is on here, and order anything, just put “picnic” or “ants” in the comments when you check out. Then you will get 10% off.
      The rub doesn’t take the pain away, but it did help.
      I’m trying the hemp CBD oil, as it’s legal in most states. I don’t really know if it’s doing anything. I’m going to go off of it when I finish this bottle and see how I feel. I’ll post my review of that here. I wasn’t given any product to try there, I bought it on my own. but I will review it.
      You are entered for the give away. I wish I had some to give to anyone who wants to try it.
      We are all different so what works for me may not work for anyone else…as I’m sure you are very well aware.

      I’m trying hard not to let this pain stop me, but I can’t say it doesn’t sometimes. Does the pain burn and sting with you? I’m used to aching and sharp pains but this stinging and burning is hard to deal with. I tighten my muscles up so much. That is something this rub really helps with, the tight muscles.

      Hope this helps.
      I’ll jump over to the post and try to explain how to use the ‘picnic’ and ‘ants’ code better.

      • Hi,
        I also get the stinging and burning on my back, face and ears. That’s the symptom that broke me. It would burn so badly, that I was in tears every second of the day. I was still working at the time and I felt as if I were going crazy ! I think mine is also from the cervical stenosis and a pinched nerve. Or it could be the Fibro. It seems to act up if I use my arms too much or when it’s going to rain.

        If you find anything that works, let me know.
        I just stumbled across your blog and am bummed I missed the giveaway. I found you because I was reading reviews for the salve and the lotion.

        • Do you live in the US? Just curious. You might want to search for reviews on the lotion from now to mid August. I was asked to review it but there’s something in it…not an active ingredient…that makes me sneeze. So there should be some reviews going on.
          I’m in PT right now for my neck pain. I don’t know if it will work or not. The burning sensation seemed better but after the last visit it was bad. Mine does get worse when I use my arms a lot, or when I just walk around a lot….maybe I’m using my arms then and I don’t realize it. 🙂
          It’s also very tight in there and sometimes it crunches. I have degenerative arthritis, so nothing is going to take the pain completely away, but I’ll keep searching for something that helps.
          Let me know if you find anything.

  4. It sounds good. BioFreeze tends to take a while to kick in and doesn’t always do the trick. Tiger balm has camphor and menthol and works great but I am paranoid about rubbing my face or eyes after applying it and ending up in pain even after washing my hands. I apply it with hair dressers gloves. This sounds like the pain relief is different and with the list of ingredients it sounds like it smells divine. With the cayenne pepper, I think I would still use the gloves though. I an excited to try it!

    • Elizabeth, IMHO, you don’t need to use gloves, it’s not that stinging. Stuart washes his hands immediately, but I just rub it all in. I’ve never had a problem with touching my face later and thinking…”Ahh…oh my gosh why did I do that?”
