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.

Aches CBD Vape Pen Review

Cannabis, Product Review

Summon relief immediately using Wildflower Aches CBD vape pens.

As legal cannabis markets continue to open up we see new varieties of consumer walk into dispensaries. With emerging demographics of cannabis users, we are seeing a constant rise in vape cartridge sales. The discretion of these products is ideal for many newer customers looking to inhale their cannabinoids. And like almost every cannabis company in Washington, Wildflower carries two formulas of vape pens. They have each flavor available in both a disposable and rechargeable option. The stand apart from their competitors because of the ability to microdose and the heavy influence of CBD rather than THC.

The Aches vape pen from Wildflower is infused with CBD and other herbs to encourage a breakup of inflammation, inhibiting aches and pains. Aside from the discretion, vaping is more attractive to patients and recreational users because our lungs are a more direct line to our bloodstream than capsules or tincture. That means if we’re having a pain flare-up or simply want CBD right now, a vape pen would be the right choice. This vape pen doesn’t just have CBD, but as we mentioned above also three herbs from the mint family. Just one 5-second puff we get 2mg of CBD along with the stimulating aromatics of the added herbs.

Personally, the Aches vape pen has been a versatile godsend in my arsenal of cannabis products. It is the perfect thing for ‘right now’ as I’m dealing with a muscle flare up, gastrointestinal discomfort, or just a surge of anxiety. A few weeks ago I dealt with a pretty serious back spasm and the Aches pen was my first step to relief. For such an intense pain I started with a hit of the pen, applied my Cool Stick, took two capsules, and then hit the vape again. Since the edibles items take 20 minutes to an hour to kick in the pen was crucial to my relief. The back spasm didn’t subside for two days, but the vape pen held true for me as a very real portal to pain relief. Frankly, it is best used alongside both the topical and the edible products for the best results. All three products used together has been the most phenomenal relief for me to help with body pain, muscle soreness, and aching joints.

Two tokes on the Aches pen brings a refreshing flavor alongside mellow, relaxing results. Try using it alongside the Cool Stick and/or CBD Tincture for the best results.
