We all need a little salve in our lives. Whether we’ve sprained an ankle, bruised a hip or just slept crooked on a large throw pillow, our bodies continually experience distress. Combine those aches with age and we can begin to feel forever inflamed.
Here’s what we concluded after we tried three new-to-us hemp CBD salves.
FOR THE TRAVELING HEART. Inesscents is notable right away for the standards and principles they claim to be upholding, including making their products and salves from all organic ingredients. Their salves are made from a long list of flowers and herbs we recognize and can actually pronounce, with no weird fillers or peculiar additives.
The company is also a B-Corp, certified as a fair trade company and supportive of philanthropic efforts throughout the farming community. The customer service was also impeccable, as they sent HEMP an email with all the necessary third-party testing results (per batch) and certifications showing their commitment to a quality product.
About the salve: The CBD travel stick, or “salvation CBD skin salve,” has an easy applicator — think a super-wide tube of lip balm — making for a clean coating on your skin, without messy fingers.
Premium Jane Topical CBD Ointments are sourced from the same 100% organic USA-grown hemp as our Oil Tinctures and Softgel Capsules. After the full-spectrum CBD compound is extracted from the raw plant material, it is infused into a rich, hand-selected moisturizing cream for whole-body use. *Contains no artificial colors, flavors, or animal-derived ingredients.*
Sourced from 100% organically-grown Oregon hemp (contains 0.2% THC or less)
Lab-tested to be free from pesticides, solvents, chemical fertilizers and other contaminants
Topical creams and ointments are the preferred way to deliver a focused, potent CBD effect directly to a specific area . Since CBD rapidly absorbs through selectively-permeable layers of the skin and is not subject to digestive metabolic processes, the effects can be faster-acting than both sublingual oils and softgel capsules.
To administer, simply massage the desired amount of ointment directly onto the designated area. In terms of dosing, we recommend starting out small (thumbnail size or less) and working your way up from there until positive effects are noticed.
