    Arthritis is the nation’s #1 disability, affecting nearly 60 million people ranging from adults to children, according to the Arthritis Foundation.

    With so many affected by this, Redeem Therapeutics developed CBD creams & CBD oils focusing on all-natural ingredients, to aid in relieving the discomforts of arthritis symptoms and other chronic pain.

    When CBD for arthritis is mentioned, the initial thought is CBD oils or CBD gummies. However, CBD creams, balms, and other topical products are becoming more common for chronic pain. With so many options available, it can be difficult to determine which product(s) are right for you. We want to clear the air and provide you with truth and transparency, as well as helpful information, so you can make an informed decision.

    In this blog, we will cover topics like, what are CBD creams, what are the benefits of CBD creams, do CBD creams help with arthritis pain, rheumatoid arthritis pain, or chronic pain, and how to apply CBD cream.

    What is Arthritis?

    Arthritis is a chronic condition characterized by inflammation of the joints. It can cause joint pain, stiffness, and swelling in the affected area. It can affect people of all ages but is most common in adults over the age of 65. There are many different types of arthritis, but the two most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

    Symptoms of arthritis include joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and decreased range of motion. However, the symptoms of arthritis may vary by type. Pain caused by arthritis can disrupt sleep causing you to wake up tired and fatigued affecting your productivity throughout the day. Arthritis pain can also make simple tasks such as getting dressed to be difficult or uncomfortable.

    If you’re suffering from joint pain caused by arthritis, chances are you’ve already tried the typical treatments offered by your physician to treat arthritis, such as pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs. While these pharmaceuticals can help ease your physical discomfort and reduce swelling of affected joints, they come with plenty of side effects that can include constipation, headaches, and dizziness.
    Fortunately, there are alternatives to traditional medications like topical CBD creams that can provide relief from joint pain without leading to the same undesirable side effects.

    What are CBD Creams?

    First, what exactly does CBD stand for? CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is hemp-derived and extracted directly from the hemp plant. It is one of the many cannabinoids found within the plant (Source).

    Second, how does CBD interact with the body? It was once believed that cannabinoids were only found in plants, such as hemp. However, some research has shown that cannabinoids are also produced by the endocannabinoid system (ECS) of most mammals (Source). As mammals ourselves, our endocannabinoid system is working as a neuroprotectant and regulator for our moods, appetite, and even sleep. On the other hand, our endocannabinoid system is also working as a receptor.

    With all of this in mind, Redeem Therapeutics developed a CBD cream (also known as a lotion) that incorporated hemp-derived CBD, menthol, anti-inflammatory essential oils, and botanicals that work together to provide the best possible noticeable pain relief for joint pain, such as rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic inflammation.

    In short, CBD creams are natural products that are applied directly to the skin. Generally, in the area that has the most pain and nerve damage.

    What are the Benefits of Redeem’s CBD Cream?

    We’ve mentioned what CBD is and how it interacts with our bodies, so what are the potential benefits of incorporating Redeem Therapeutic’s CBD pain cream into your daily routine?

    Does Redeem’s CBD Cream Help with Arthritis Pain and Other Chronic Pain?

    Many consumers use CBD creams for a variety of reasons. One of the largest concerns we see our customers using CBD products for is arthritis symptoms. According to the Arthritis Foundation, animal studies have shown that CBD has pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties; however, while minimal human studies exist, many consumers who have arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or other chronic pain, and use CBD products do experience positive effects, such as relief from discomfort, better sleep, elevated moods, and more.

    Topical CBD creams have been shown to provide targeted pain relief more effectively with more natural ingredients than traditional pain creams on the market. Research into CBD is still in the early stages, but there’s evidence that CBD creams can help with a number of pain sensations, including:

    • Arthritis-related pain and swelling, according to this 2016 animal study.
    • Nerve pain, according to this 2020 study.
    • Jaw pain, according to this 2019 study.

    A 2019 report from the Arthritis Foundation found that 79% of the 2,600 arthritis patients surveyed had considered using CBD or had already used it. Twenty-nine percent said they currently used it for arthritis symptoms; among those using CBD, 55% used a topical product applied to the joints.

    Our customers have also spoken out about their experience with CBD products:

    “Redeem 1500mg CBD cream is very effective in treating pain in the neck and back area. I use it at least once a day and sometimes twice a day for pain relief in my neck and back. I found it to be more effective than any other pain cream that I have tried.” Gary E.

    “This product has helped me in so many ways! The two most notable are, I sleep great and my arthritis is all but gone! Love it!!” Eric A.

    Do All CBD Topicals Work The Same?

    Not all CBD creams are geared to aid in the relief of the same ailments. CBD can be used in combination with a number of other all-natural products to focus on helping a variety of symptoms.

    Redeem CBD pain cream is formulated with a powerful combination of:

    • CBD, Menthol, Capsicum, and Arnica Extract to provide immediate and lasting pain relief and improved circulation;
    • Aloe, Jojoba, Tea Tree oils, and Vitamin C to speed absorption while soothing and protecting your skin;
    • Basil Leaf, Clary Sage, Ginger Root, and Rosemary Essential Oils to further relieve inflammation, stiffness, and pain.

    How to Apply CBD Creams:

    Applying CBD cream is as easy as 1, 2, 3. 

    1. Remove safety shrink wrapping.
    2. Remove cap.
    3. Pump the airless pump a few times until the product starts to come out.
    4. Using your hands or fingertips, apply a small, thin amount to the area of discomfort.
    5. Apply more as needed because this product is buildable.
    6. Allow time to absorb into the skin before covering with clothes.
    7. Do not get cream in your eyes or on mucus membranes.  Wash hands after use.
