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??
