Being with MaQ, my German shepherd dog, is very important to me. As much as I love going out and meeting new people, there's nothing better than spending quality time together. We're no couch potatoes but we love getting our sweat on! I'm not necessarily a gym rat or fitness guru, but figure skating has been a huge part of my life in terms of staying physically fit. Not only did it keep me in top shape I was aware of the discipline it took to stay that way, and since then I haven't changed. But what has changed is my body. All the years of being on the ice did some damage, and little aches and pains have resurfaced a lot lately. If you haven't heard by now CBD is a great alternative for pain relief and in today's post, I'm sharing a new line of ointments that are safe, powerful and effective. Continue reading to learn more!
I love to go running with my pup in the city but recently I've experienced pain in my shoulder and back. I don't believe it has stemmed from running but rather being in awkward positions while doing several photoshoots (I'm also a photographer) seems to be the culprit. But the aches around these areas feel more apparent while running, which can be very distracting. Which is why I started using CBDMEDIC Ointments. CBDMEDIC products are the first family of topical medications that combine highly effective analgesic ingredients (like menthol and camphor) with hemp oil or extract and other natural emollients. Their advanced scientific groundbreaking formulas deliver to a wide range of people, like myself, who suffer from acute pain. And yes, “CBD”—a THC-free cannabinoid-rich hemp extractor oil from the Cannabis sativa L. plant is a natural alternative for pain relief. And how cool is it that this brand has 15 years of science in the making for these products?!
I've been using the Active Sport™ for general muscle aches and pain, and for more specific targets like my back and shoulder area, I've been using the Back & Neck formula. I love the smell of them, as there's a little bit of eucalyptus and menthol - which gives that relaxing, calming scent. The menthol increases blood ﬂow to areas affected by sprains, arthritis, and muscle spasms to enable increased movement. They even have a formula for arthritis - all cruelty-free and made with natural ingredients. They do sell other products which are available at your local CVS Pharmacy.
