1. Endoca Hemp Salve 750mg
If you suffer from a herniated or bulging disc, Endoca’s CBD salve may be the one for you. The first thing you will experience with this product is the delightful aroma of fresh-lemon when the tub is opened. The second thing you will notice is the dense consistency of the salve. As such, you’ll have to slightly dig into the product before you can rub the product into your back. The highly-concentrated consistency makes it perfect for applying to small areas of inflammation, like targeted back pain.
The best-selling hemp salve also contains other nourishing ingredients that are included to reduce inflammation and promote softer skin. Made from natural, food-grade ingredients, the product contains 750mg of CBD!
Ingredients: CBD (cannabidiol), Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citral, Vanilla, Vitamin E.
At $64 (or equivalent), this CBD salve at first seems expensive when compared to non-cannabidiol creams. However, this price-point is on par with other high-quality topicals in the industry. Basically, it will come down to your own individual budget. If you have the funds, then Endoca’s Salve is one of the best CBD creams for herniated disc pain on the market.

2. Endoca Whipped Body Butter 1500mg
Got wide spread body pain? Then this body butter may be the ideal cream for you. Endoca’s Butter takes cannabidiol and nourishing oils, and then whips them together into a spreadable cream. As you can imagine, CBD butter is designed to reduce areas of inflammation. The first thing I always do when testing a new product is to run my finger into the solution – doing this with the butter allowed me to discover a beautiful consistency. In fact, the topical has the perfect balance between runny and thick. With this butter-like consistency, the product is best used when spread on larger areas of pain, like over the full back. In fact, many people use this cream over their whole body after showering.
Ingredients: Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter, Beeswax, Root Starch Vanilla, and Beeswax Vitamin E.
With over 1500mg of CBD in the biggest size, we believe this cream represents great value for money. The product is available in 300mg CBD or 1500mg tub sizes
3. CBD Muscle Balm by CBDfx
Formulated with all-natural ingredients, this balm is based around natural oils and butters like sunflower oil, coconut oil, and shea butter. It also contains evening primrose oil which could improve nerve function thanks to its high content of gamma-linoleic acid.
The cream also contains a blend of lavender, roman chamomile, and wild orange essential oils that give it a mellow, calming scent. According to traditional medicine, lavender and chamomile essential oils can also be used to soothe nerve pain. This means that combining them with CBD could be a powerful way to get relief from your herniated disc.
Its texture is thick, but it quickly becomes thinner as you warm it up in between your hands. Apply it to your whole back, or to particularly painful areas to get targeted relief.
In terms of the CBD, this is a high-quality product that uses organically grown and third-party tested CBD. Although it brands itself as a moisturizing balm, it’s just as effective at fighting pain as other products on this list. A 2oz jar contains 750mg of CBD, which makes it a high potency product, on par with other, pain-specific balms and creams. Overall, it’s a perfect choice for those who want to get the most out of not just CBD, but other naturally soothing ingredients.
4.Premium CBD Salve 500mg by Joy Organics
This premium CBD salve by Joy Organics contains just 5 ingredients, including fresh-smelling lavender and eucalyptus essential oils.
We really like this product for its smooth, creamy consistency, and for its pleasant smell. It uses MCT oil as a carrier oil, a gentle and hydrating oil that works well on all skin types. The only other carrier ingredient is beeswax, a natural alternative to synthetic thickeners and emulsifiers. Finally, it contains lavender and eucalyptus essential oils, two great painkilling and anti-inflammatory products. Not only are essential oils a great way to soothe pain of all kinds, they also reinforce the action of CBD with their terpenes.
Like all Joy Organics product, this 500mg hemp salve uses organic, third-party tested CBD extract of the highest quality. The hemp that is used to make it is also GMO-free and grown in the U.S.A, which can be great for Americans who value local products.
You can get this simple salve in two different sizes, a 1oz jar with 500mg of CBD, or a 2oz jar that contains 1000mg. Depending on your use of CBD on a daily basis, investing in a larger tub could give you better value for money. But it is up to you to determine how much you need for the relief you want.
5.Elixinol Full-Spectrum Hemp Balm
Full-spectrum means that this cream contains not only CBD, but also other cannabinoids like CBG, CBN, and even THC. Together, these ingredients can be even more effective in relieving pain, and give you more well-rounded effects from your CBD product.
As well as cannabinoids, this product also contains botanicals that are known to fight pain, such as rosemary leaf extract and calendula flower extract. It also contains a couple of essential oils like lemon, wintergreen, and Blue Mallee Eucalyptus which give it a fresh scent and add to its terpene profile.
As with all Elixinol products, the CBD extract in this cream is organic, GMO-free, and third-party tested. Considering this, it comes in at a remarkably affordable price of just $9.99 for the smallest version, or up to $44.99 for the stronger, 500mg version.
