CBD – We know it’s a great a sleep aid and stress killer, but one of the best benefits of CBD is pain relief. Our throbbing feet, cracking knees and aching back need help! We want to send pain packing. And for a lot of chronic pain sufferers other treatments haven’t worked or come with unwanted side effects.

Good News! Researchers have confirmed that CBD works against pain, discomfort, and inflammation, and they’re still finding new ways that it works in the body. They’ve also found that applying CBD topically delivers relief directly at the source.

How are CBD topicals used?

CBD seems to offer excellent relief from musculoskeletal complaints like arthritis, joint pain, nerve pain and sore muscles. It can also help with eczema, psoriasis, scars, and other skin conditions.

How do topicals work? Tell me the science!

In short, the CBD in our Rongoāvis roll-ons works by interacting with endocannabinoid receptors in muscle tissue, skin, and nerves to alleviate both pain and inflammation.  CBD topicals don’t just mask the pain or inflammation, they can actually make the pain go away for a certain time period at a specific area of your body, such as on the joints.

When you apply a CBD topical product, CBD penetrates the dermal and subdermal skin layers, reaching further than just the surface of the skin, but it doesn’t get to your bloodstream. Instead, it interacts with the cannabinoid receptors nearby, which sends a signal to the endocannabinoid system to alleviate pain in the affected area of your body.

To ensure you’re getting the most out of your CBD topical product apply it liberally at first. Get a feel for how much product provides the best results for you. And keep in mind that can vary depending on your ailment. For example, you may just need to apply just a little bit for the minor muscle pain in your shoulder after a workout but find that you need to apply more to address the nerve pain in your heels.

What are the Benefits?

Applying a CBD topical to the skin can alleviate skin problems, as well as pain and inflammation in the area. CBD naturally raises the endocannabinoids in your body, helping to relieve discomfort. CBD also helps limit your body’s normal inflammatory response when you have muscle soreness due to exercising or lifting weights. Even topically, CBD provides a calming effect for both your mind and body by working with the natural functions in your body.

We’re fortunate that a lot more research is being conducted on the benefits of CBD. Scientists are finding out more about CBD every day with promising results.

At Rongoāvis, we created our line of topical CBD oil roll-ons with invigorating blends of therapeutic herbs, essential oils, and full-spectrum CBD.  Our rejuvenating topical roll-ons come in four different aromatic profiles so we’re sure you’ll find the perfect one(s) for you.
