The Powers of Arnica + CBD

Cannabis, Product Review

Heal Stick CBD balms use synergistic herbal formulas that make it a must-have in the medicine cabinet.

Topical cannabis products are a practical addition to the robust product line that has been developed using the plant. The Cool Stick that we reviewed at the beginning of this Wildflower CBD review series is the sister product to this splendid arnica based CBD topical stick. The Heal Stick uses a less mint focused proprietary blend of herbs. But it’s worth noting that the balm does still contain some wintergreen essential oils. Heal Sticks are appropriate for nourishing and healing skin that is stressed out by acne and other inflammatory skin conditions.

Each power-packed Heal Stick contains 500 mg of highly concentrated full spectrum CBD isolate. Wildflower sources their CBD from the reliable CBD exporters in Germany. The base of the balm is made using coconut oil, hemp oil, and shea butter for easy application and quick absorption. Let’s break down the ingredients. Coconut oil is not only antifungal and antibacterial but also exceptionally moisturizing. As always, the hemp oil adds the value of Omega-3 & 6 and amino acids which can help treat acne, rashes, and other skin conditions. Moisture agents aren’t even the heavy hitter in this skin healing formula. Arnica is also included. It is an impressive herb which promotes the healing of bruises and strained muscles. Many also use it for treating acne, scrapes, on chapped lips, and insect bites. With arnica included, this combination of power ingredients makes for an effective balm for me in so many situations.

There are tons of times when the Heal Stick has helped me out, and after researching the ingredients more deeply I’m excited to use it in all new ways. I reach for my Heal Stick from Wildflower when my period cramps are acting up because CBD can relieve discomfort. It is also a great product when I’ve worked my muscles hard in yoga or climbing, or when I’ve banged my knee on the wall like the newb that I am. There are patients who have also found this topical CBD balm useful for arthritis and headache relief. Those who are acne prone will appreciate the Heal Stick’s ingredients which fight the stubborn skin condition. And a note always worth mentioning, the Heal Stick is in a self-applicating tube. That means tons of topical saved from not applying it from our fingers before the targeted area. Simply put the product lasts longer because of the ingenious packaging. Personally, I keep one around when hiking and camping, working out, or simply working a long shift.

Less mess, less stress. The topical Heal Stick helps me stay calm in any situation.


Spotlight on Healing: Cannabis Topical Salve

Product Review

There is a lot more to medical cannabis than ‘getting high’ and slowly, as medical dispensaries are able to operate we are learning how to use the plant to truly heal. Extractions are used to cook delicious, medicinal treats and also to create wax which allows for a more intense effect to help replace opioid treatments. They are also used to create topical balms and salves.

I battle a lot of pain in my neck and shoulders, I believe that’s where I hold my stress. So when I first found topical cannabis Pain-Re-Leaf-Ointmentsalves I was willing to do anything. Topical cannabis salves come in CBD only, which are legal federally, or in a THC included version. As always I recommend utilizing all cannabinoids but if you don’t have a medical card then I would recommend the CBD most definitely, it is effective just not as effective.

The brand of salve that I am using is Chronic Health Pain Re-Leaf Ointment. I am using the regular version but they just came out with a CBD High Ointment that I can’t wait to try. I apply this when my muscles are sore, my kidneys are throbbing and when I have painful cramps from my cycle. It works for absolutely all of it. This is an all around healing balm and I recommend it to EVERYONE. It is pretty stanky like cannabis, so keep use for home with this specific kind of balm unless you don’t care and then go wild and smell like cannabis all over town. I do that :D. If you want, you can add a couple drops of an essential oil to offset the smell.
