In a previous article here on the cbdMD blog, one of our staff writers, Randall Goins, outlined all the reasons CBD topicals like cbdMD Recover are helpful for athletes. As a former pro wrestler, Goins is familiar with all the injuries and subsequent pain that becomes a part of life for many athletes. For athletes, the supportive care of a CBD recovery cream can be a crucial part of their training and success. Many athletes are getting on board with the benefits of CBD topicals, creams, and balms. And cbdMD Recover is one of the products that tops the list for athletes, for good reason. It’s the best!
But what about people like me and you? Can CBD topicals help us too? You know, us regular people who haven’t seen a gym in a while? Those of us who head out for a fun night or just go to the mall, stand for a bit too long in those uncomfortable shoes, and then deal with swollen ankles for days – for standing.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never climbed into the ring (my mother would have a fit!) or strapped on running shoes for the big race. In fact, I once threw out my back by simply lifting and placing a can of peas into my shopping cart. Many of us struggle-bus our way through everyday activities like climbing stairs or raking leaves.
Pain Is a Real, Everyday Problem for A Lot of People
All of us, at some time or another, are going to experience soreness just from moving about in the world and doing it in our limited biological vessels. (Yes, aging ones!) As with athletes, our muscles get pushed to their limits, stretch and repair, recover, and do it over again. The process is the same because muscle tone, strength, or size is only partially factorial, though it could influence how easily our muscles become stressed. If you are not an athlete, especially, you may find that muscle pain happens all the more easily.
Pain, unfortunately, can come from everyday activities like working in your yard, stepping down wrong off the step ladder in your kitchen, or lifting your grandbaby for a hug. Perhaps you have a demanding physical job that you really must do. Regardless of your threshold for pain, which differs from person to person, it is the quality of life that matters most. There are no heroes here. “Toughing it out” solves nothing.
It is OK to want to relieve common aches and to take measures to do that. If super-fit athletes can address their limitations and tackle their pain head-on, so can you. The good news is that cbdMD Recover Cream, which features CBD for everyday recovery and an approved pain reliever, isn’t just for athletes – it’s for all of us. CBD topicals come in various forms and strengths, so there’s a little something for everyone. Today we’ll focus on one of our most popular CBD topical formulas, cbdMD Recover Cream, and why it can help you get back into the rhythm of your life.
Why Your Self-Care Should Include CBD Topical Products
So, now that you’ve hung the blinds or cleaned the bathtub and the soreness has set in, you dig around in your health goody-box: analgesics and stinky muscle creams, none of which are very appealing. You settle on the heating pad and a bit of rest. What you need is targeted relief in the area that is hurting. A cream makes the most sense, but aren’t those muscle creams all really greasy and smelly?
Here at cbdMD, we’ve made our creams with more pleasant carrier creams and pain-fighting ingredients that deliver the temporary pain relief that you need right now – as you’re stuck on the couch when you need to be up and doing the things in your life that need your attention. (So says the dog who’s still waiting for a walk!)
CBD topical creams, enriched with powerful pain-relieving ingredients, make it easy for you to apply, get some relief, and get back to your life. No-fuss. For folks like you and me, that’s pretty inviting.
But can CBD be absorbed through the skin? The answer is yes. Your skin has endocannabinoid receptors, making it able to absorb CBD topically for faster and more targeted use. The CBD goes right to the area but does not enter the bloodstream.
CBD Topical Products May Be Useful People Who
- Overuse their hands with craftings, such as crochet or knitting
- Have a job that requires long periods of sitting
- Overdo it at the gym or playing sports
- Travel occasionally but aren’t used to that much walking or riding
- Experience discomfort after lifting things or exerting themselves in ways they are not used to
- Type a lot or spend too much time playing video games
- Feel overly exerted at the end of a long day
- Went bowling, or hiking, or skiing with the church group (It’ll be fun, they said)
Whatever the circumstances, soreness is common in these situations.
CBD topical solutions include powerful pain-fighting ingredients (such as the histamine dihydrochloride found in cbdMD Recover) Basically: if your pain is localized to an area, you can use a CBD topical cream with pain-relieving ingredients to apply for targeted pain relief, right where you need it – right when you need it. Histamine dihydrochloride is the active pain-relieving ingredient in cbdMD Recover cream, a partnership that we feel is your best bet for temporary relief from all sorts of daily aches and pains.
CBD Topicals Benefits
CBD topicals, like cbdMD Recover or cbdMD Relieve, are quick and easy to use. They provide a “vehicle” for delivering CBD and other useful ingredients directly to the area. CBD topicals work by supplying critical support agents, like histamine dihydrochloride, right where your pain receptors (called nociceptors) are sending those pain signals to your brain.
If you are already using a CBD tincture every day, the topical solutions can provide added support. CBD topicals do not reach the transdermal (deep) layers or the bloodstream. Many people choose to use topicals and other CBD products that are taken internally, such as gummies or tinctures, for overall wellness and support.
Our CBD topicals are enriched with pain-fighting and skin-soothing ingredients and work to relieve mild to moderate localized pain. Topicals penetrate the epidermal layers of the skin through the sebaceous glands and CBD joins with your endocannabinoid receptors to provide support for healthy skin.
The Big Question: Does cbdMD Recover Really Help With Pain?
We know your bottom line is simple. Will it make you feel better? Because when you are in pain, it disrupts your daily life, routine, job, and takes the fun out of activities you love doing.

How Does cbdMD Recover Work?
cbdMD Recover cream delivers comfort because it is power-packed with only the best, expertly chosen, superior ingredients.
Imagine you cook up a nice dinner, but instead of using quality beef, you use something you found in the dumpster. Instead of fresh vegetables, you use plastic ones. While it can all look the same in the end, your dinner is going to be utterly terrible. The same is true for cosmetics, beauty care, and yes, pain-relief gels and creams. What goes into your cream matters to the health of your skin and the relief that you will feel.
Here’s What’s in Your cbdMD Recover Cream
A topical analgesic, histamine dihydrochloride, can provide temporary relief from aches and pains. It creates a warming sensation to areas of discomfort, which can help promote relief.
Hemp extracts work with the endocannabinoid system to assist with recovery from temporary exercise-related or daily minor discomfort and muscle soreness. They are also gentle on your skin.
Essential Oils & Botanicals
Our selection of essential oils of rosemary, orange, geranium, and fir provide a pleasant, aromatic experience while also delivering botanical support for soothing your skin. Also included are extracts of arnica, a lovely yellow flowering herb in the Asteraceae family; methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM; and Vitamin B6, or pyridoxine, an essential vitamin your body needs for healthy skin.
- Coconut Oil
- Shea Butter
As with any topical formulation, the carrier cream is important. You want a creamy base that will not irritate the skin or create an artificial barrier, interfering with your skin’s natural permeable functions. Coconut oil and shea butter work to soothe your skin while still allowing it to carry out its daily protective functions. These creams provide a lightweight, nourishing, absorbable base for the other ingredients to penetrate.
What’s Not in cbdMD Recover
- Artificial colors and perfumes
- Cheap filler additives
- Greasy and skin-clogging petroleum products
cbdMD Recover Can Help Regardless of Your Lifestyle
You don’t have to be the next Olympian to use cbdMD Recover to provide relief for common aches and soreness. We’ve done the hard work of selecting all the best ingredients and creating a formula you will enjoy using. All you have to do is apply the cream to the affected area and massage it into your skin. Then, let the cream do the work it was designed to do. Relax, recover, and get on with the business of enjoying your life.
