I’ve had a plague of ankle injuries throughout the year, so I was more than happy to test out this CBD muscle rub by Just Be CBD, the second product I’m reviewing by the brand, following on from the JustBeCBD Acai Berry CBD Drops.
While the relieving muscle rub came in the normal outside packaging, what I was happily surprised by was how nice the actual tube is, with the wooden top and base. It really did look incredibly luxurious, I know this isn’t something that matters when reviewing a product, but I wanted to doth my cap to some great design work and branding!
How Much CBD Do You Get?
A single 100ml tube contains 200mg of CBD. They’re utilising a CBD isolate in the formula, meaning you won’t find a presence of other cannabinoids, as shown by the lab reports. You can find the certificate of analysis in the footer on their website.
As you would expect, the lab report covers off whether the product contains anything it shouldn’t such as heavy metals or pesticides, and it’s all clear.
When trialling the CBD muscle rub, I used about 5ml at a time. That was quite a generous helping, therefore you might not use that much, but that would provide you with 20 applications before the tub would run out. This would also provide you with 10mg of CBD at a time.
How Does It Work?
I wanted to highlight this area, as I was being a bit stupid when I opened it up as I couldn’t get it to work straight away, but in reality, I just lack patience and it worked perfectly. I gave it a couple of pumps and it didn’t come out straight away, while I opened it up and couldn’t spot a plastic tube down.
However, to avoid the use of needless plastic, they use a vacuum pump system, therefore if you give it a couple of pumps and wait a bit, from then onwards it will easily come out.
Make sure to only apply the lotion to the body, don’t put it on your face and wash your hands after application.
What Ingredients Does This Product Contain, Other Than CBD?
One key ingredient is eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, which has been used throughout human history in order to help reduce inflammation and relieve against pain, especially those with chronic pain. Eucalyptus is cleansing, it boosts the immune system and it can help relieve tired muscles, which is why many runners use it after a marathon to help the body recover.
You might also notice the presence of glucosamine on the ingredients lists. I started supplementing with glucosamine sulphate about 9 years ago when I injured my shoulder, to relieve the pressure on my joints.
The muscle rub also has rosemary oil, which works in a similar way to eucalyptus oil, in helping to relieve pain and inflammation, while they have both been used throughout history in cosmetics.
Piper Nigrum, or black pepper, has a wealth of health benefits, partly thanks to its high levels of antioxidants, helping your body to fight off free radicals. But a lesser known health benefit is its ability to help reduce joint and muscular pain, are you noticing a pattern with these ingredients? They’ve all been perfectly chosen for the formula to offer the ideal combination and help you to get back to moving freely without pain.
The final notable ingredient is cinnamon bark oil, which can reduce stiffness in the body, while it can also offer the added bonus of helping to calm dry skin, plus fighting any infection that could occur.
