Hemp Arthritis Cream

Hemp isn’t just a natural skin moisturizer; it also contains powerful pain-fighting compounds. Hemp arthritis creams use those botanical molecules to help soothe aching joints.

Unlike CBD oil or capsules, which are taken orally, hemp arthritis cream and gels are applied to the skin directly over the painful area. That means you can feel the effects almost immediately. These topical ointments, creams, and lotions are infused with CBD or cannabidiol—a compound that’s been shown to reduce inflammation and muscle soreness.

Exploring the Benefits of Hemp Arthritis Cream

These creams are designed to relieve achy, stiff joints and muscles, especially in the hands, elbows, knees, and ankles. They’re often scented with herbs or oils to help stimulate blood flow and provide a cooling sensation. And they’re made with organic ingredients sourced from sustainable farms and packaged using carbon-neutral shipping methods.

In addition to the CBD, these creams and ointments have other scientifically proven analgesics like menthol, camphor, and capsaicin. These compounds, plus the fact that you’re massaging the affected area as you apply them, help to distract your nerves from the pain and reduce soreness, Dr. Colberg explains.

In one study, CBD applied topically to the knees of arthritic rats reduced pain and stiffness. However, the fatty tissue in human skin can only absorb so much oil—so it’s unlikely that enough of this kind of CBD would leak into your skeletal muscles through diffusion to significantly relieve acute pain and muscle soreness. That said, if you just want to rub on some cream and believe it will help, there’s nothing wrong with that.
