The latest research is showing that CBD may have a range of benefits. Perhaps the biggest benefit is the effect CBD has been shown to have on inflammation. As such, you may be thinking about using the cannabidiol compound to relieve inflammation and pain associated with your condition or injury.
With that said, not all CBD products are on the same level of quality. That’s why we’ve put together this list of our favourite and best CBD creams for inflammation. All products are from respectable brands that use hemp-sourced CBD. Without further ado, let’s get started.
1. Endoca Hemp Salve 750mg
Without doubt, the Endoca Hemp Salve is our favourite cream from all the CBD creams that we have tested. It is a concentrated and thick consistency, which makes it ideal for concentrated areas of inflammation.
As soon as we opened the tub we were immediately treated to a delightful smell of fresh lemon. We then noticed the firm consistency of the product, which meant we had to dig into the product to get a good amount onto our fingers. We knew this would be the best hemp cream for inflammation, especially over concentrated flare-ups.
The nourishing CBD salve doesn’t just contain CBD.In fact, it contains a range of natural ingredients to promote smoothness: CBD (cannabidiol), Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citral, Vanilla, Vitamin E.
Endoca ships worldwide, so anyone can purchase this CBD inflammation cream. It is currently priced at $64 (or equivalent), which may seem on the high side, but this is very competitively priced when it comes to CBD creams. At the end of the day, it will come down to your individual budget. Click the button below to read product reviews.
2. Endoca Whipped Body Butter 1500mg
From the same brand as the salve above, the Whipped Butter is the best topical CBD for inflammation that covers large areas. Upon opening the rub we noticed how this cream was a lot smoother than the Hemp Salve. In fact, the butter-like consistency is a nice balance between runny and thick.
It’s perfect for spreading on large areas of inflammation, which makes it the popular choice for achy knees and injuries. I know of many people that use this cream over their whole body after showering. Personally, I use this over my lower back when it gets sore (I have a herniated disc).
The cream is made by combining cannabidiol with a mix of natural butters and oils, which makes it ideal for reducing inflammation and promoting soft skin. It has the following ingredients: Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter, Beeswax, Root Starch Vanilla, and Beeswax Vitamin E.
You have the option between the 300mg CBD or 1500mg tub sizes. Personally, the 1500mg offers the best value for money, which takes care of my back pain for at least a month.
3.CBD Balm – Calming
And this is exactly what CBDfx are doing with their calming balm which contains both CBD and essential oils for even better relief.
This gentle formulation is suitable for all skin types and contains only natural ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, and sunflower oil etc. It’s also formulated with lavender, chamomile, and tea tree—all of which are used to soothe inflammation in natural medicine.
This calming balm has a thick texture that makes it ideal to apply to smaller areas of inflammation (say, the knees or the hands). We recommend applying it every 4 to 6 hours to get consistent relief over extended periods of time.
Those who already know what CBD can do for their inflammatory condition might be happier with the 60ml version, which contains 750mg of CBD for $39.99.
Overall, it’s a great, gentle product for those looking for a balm they can use every day.
4.Premium CBD Salve 500mg by Joy Organics
It uses natural ingredients, quality essential oils, and top-grade CBD in a product that more than does the job.
If you take a minute to read the ingredient list, you’ll get what we mean when we say it’s a “simple” product:
Organic MCT Oil, Organic Beeswax, Phytocannabinoid-Rich Hemp Extract, Organic Lavender Essential Oil and Organic Eucalyptus Essential Oil.
With just 5 ingredients, it’s one of the most uncomplicated products we’ve seen so far. And for those who want inflammation-relief, nothing more, nothing less, that’s the kind of ingredient list you’re after. Each of the ingredients serves a purpose. MCT is a carrier oil that is very gentle on the skin and can be tolerated by almost anyone. Beeswax is a gentle ingredient that helps give this balm a firmer texture without the use of any synthetic additives. Finally, lavender and eucalyptus essential oils add anti-inflammatory properties to the product—and a fresh, clean scent!
The CBD in this product is completely organic and GMO-free, as well as third-party tested. 1oz contains 500mg, a medium concentration that works well for inflammation and moderate pain.
You can get this cream in two different sizes, a 1oz jar or a 2oz one. The 2oz jar offers some of the best value for money you can find for that sort of quality, so it’s something we’d highly recommend to all daily CBD users!
5.Elixinol CBD Sports Gel 1000mg
This gentle gel by Elixinol contains much more than just CBD. Many of its ingredients, including arnica flower extract, capsaicin, rosemary leaf oil, and aloe vera juice have natural inflammation-fighting properties. And since most of them are rich in terpenes, they also have the unique ability to make CBD stronger. This results in a product that takes care of inflammation on many different levels and can offer very powerful results.
One of the things we like best about this product is the texture. Unlike a lot of other CBD topicals, it’s water-based rather than oil-based. This makes it less moisturizing but faster absorbing. It’s also guaranteed not to leave a greasy residue on your skin, simply leaving it feeling fresh and calm.
In terms of potency, it’s a strong product that contains 1000mg of CBD in a 100ml jar. So no matter what your inflammatory condition is, you can expect to see almost instant results from using it. Since it comes in a metal bottle (with a convenient gas pump), it’s particularly well-suited to being kept in the fridge. If you’re looking for a strong product that can give you that instant cooling effect, keep this one in mind.
