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.

What about those people who've never climbed into the ring for a boxing match or strapped on running shoes for the big race. Those folks, who on occasion throw their backs out by simply lifting a heavy can or backpack the wrong way. Many people in fact struggle our way through everyday activities like walking up stairs or doing exercise.


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 child 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 soreness 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.


CBD Topicals Benefits

CBD topicals, like cbdMD Recover or cbdMD Freeze, 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 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.

cbdMD topicals are enriched with sore muscle-fighting and skin-soothing ingredients and work to relieve mild to moderate localized discomfort. 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 Sore Muscles?

We know your bottom line is simple. Will it make you feel better? Because when you are feeling sore, it disrupts your daily life, routine, job, and takes the fun out of activities you love doing. You want to get back to your life and do it without the distraction or disruption of pain. We get it, which is why we have such an extensive collection of CBD topical products with carefully selected relieving ingredients, skin-soothing moisturizers, vitamins, and botanical blends so that you can find the perfect application for your needs.

cbdMD Recover with histamine dihydrochloride was formulated specifically for backaches, sore muscles, and joint discomfort, which are common regardless of activity level, fitness level, or lifestyle. We carefully chose relieving ingredients and packed them into a skin-nourishing carrier cream. The result has been overwhelming. Users of cbdMD Recover are raving over how well it works, its ease of use, and how it’s changed their lives.  And that’s where the magic really happens for us: changing people’s lives with products that really work.


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

Histamine Dihydrochloride

A topical analgesic, histamine dihydrochloride, can provide temporary relief from aches. It creates a warming sensation to areas of discomfort, which can help promote relief.

Hemp extracts

  • Cannabidiol
  • Cannabigerol

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

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.
