Fibromyalgia, also known as FMS, is a condition that causes widespread pain across the whole body. The condition also typically causes an increase in pain sensitivity, muscle stiffness, and fatigue. Although there is no known cure for FMS, sufferers use pain-relieving medicines to cope with the condition.
As well as pain killers and relaxation techniques, FMS sufferers are now turning to other holistic alternatives, like CBD. The cannabinoid compound has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation. But what is the best CBD cream for fibromyalgia? In this buyers’ guide, you will find our most recommended and favourite topical CBD products. Without further ado, let’s dive in.
1. Endoca Hemp Salve 750mg
With its gentle, thick texture, it’s easy to apply on any part of your body. Although it’s made with a lot of deep-moisturizing oils, it does absorb very well and won’t leave an oily residue on your skin.
In terms of ingredients, this is one of the purest products you can find. It contains hemp oil, coconut oil, CBD extract, vitamin E, lemon peel oil, and vanilla. The product technically qualifies as “food-safe”: you could eat it if you wanted to! The vanilla and lemon peel oil give it a pleasant, refreshing scent that isn’t too sweet. Once on your skin, the scent does go away relatively quickly.
With 750mg of CBD in a small, 30ml jar, this is a high-potency product that’s perfect for people who deal with pain day to day. It’s also guaranteed organic, GMO-free, and third-party tested for quality. The hemp extract is CO2 extracted to give you the best possible purity, and the product’s certificates of analysis are very easy to access. If you’re looking for a simple product with quality ingredients and a high potency, we highly recommend this one.
2. Endoca Whipped Body Butter 1500mg
Made with whipped shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil, its texture is beyond compare. It feels very aerated and is very pleasant to apply to the skin. Whether you’re covering small or large patches of skin with it, it remains one of the easiest products to use that we’ve found so far.
The whipped butter comes in two different strengths: 300 or 1500mg of CBD in a 100mL jar. Most fibromyalgia sufferers will be satisfied with the lower potency version, but the high-potency version can be a good option for those who struggle with a lot of pain or inflammation.
In terms of quality, it’s a product that checks every box. It’s made using organic, GMO-free CBD. The extract is CO2 extracted for the best possible purity, and third-party tested to guarantee quality. In fact, you can easily find the certificate of analysis for this product on Endoca’s website, and see for yourself what cannabinoids and terpenes it contains.
If you’re looking for a product that isn’t just effective but also a joy to use, this incredibly creamy whipped body butter is our favorite pick.

Like other CBDfx products, this cream is formulated with only natural ingredients, including natural oils like sunflower, jojoba, olive, and coconut.

4. Premium CBD Salve 500mg by Joy Organics
It contains 500mg of CBD in 1oz of product, a medium concentration that is ideal for daily use.
Take a minute to read the ingredients list of this product:
Organic MCT Oil, Organic Beeswax, Phytocannabinoid-Rich Hemp Extract, Organic Lavender Essential Oil and Organic Eucalyptus Essential Oil.
It’s very simple and one of the things that we like the most about it. No fuss, just CBD extract, a good carrier oil, and natural plant extracts.
MCT oil is a neutral-smelling, hydrating oil made from coconut or palm. Beeswax helps give it a thicker consistency, and the essential oils add both scent and some additional benefits. The CBD in this product is very high-quality, in keeping with Joy Organics’ established reputation. It is third-party tested, organic, GMO-free, and U.S.-grown. In terms of quality, it’s some of the best you can get.
What we like the most about this cream is that it really has calming properties thanks to its essential oils. For example, lavender oil is a natural stress reliever that also relieves pain and has anti-inflammatory properties. Fresh smelling eucalyptus is also a powerful anti-inflammatory that lowers pain and could even help you to breathe better!
If you’re looking for a simple cream that does exactly what it says, this lavender and eucalyptus salve will work a charm!
5. Elixinol Full-Spectrum Hemp Balm
You can get it in a 50mg version, a 250mg, or a 500mg version. We think most people with fibromyalgia will benefit from the 250mg version, but it can be worth trying the higher potency if you experience more pain.
Being a full-spectrum product, this cream contains not just CBD, but all of the other cannabinoids found in cannabis too. This includes THC which is great at relieving pain and promoting healthy sleep, CBG which relieves nausea, and many others.
Alongside full-spectrum CBD extract, this balm contains rare and unique ingredients like ucuuba butter, candelilla wax, andiroba oil, and Blue Mallee eucalyptus essential oil. But not to worry, all of these products are natural and suitable for all skin types. The ucuuba butter has deep moisturizing properties, as do grapeseed oil, and organic sunflower oil. Nerolidol, copaiba, and eucalyptus essential oil give this product a pleasant fresh smell. Meanwhile, calendula flower extract and wintergreen essential oils have soothing properties and add another layer of pain relief.
If you’re looking for an organic, third-party tested CBD product that contains something a little more unique for a great price, this full-spectrum balm is your first option.
