For weekend warriors and competitive athletes, CBD has become a necessity; just as much as our water bottle, gels and cryotherapy.
Decreasing the amount of inflammation in one’s body post-workout is just one of the many benefits of CBD. In the midst of my marathon training for the 2021 Los Angeles Marathon, I discovered the company: Highway 2 CBD.
Founded by Patrick Neill, they have a wide range of CBD options that treat sore muscles, cuts and aid in rest. Highway 2 CBD makes and sells several different brands under their company umbrella. Among those CBD brands is Topical Way.
The three creams I tried are made to work together in synergy with organic essential oils.
My favorite is the SORE MUSCLE CREAM:
I tried this after a few trail runs and my long 15 mile training run pre-marathon. It really soothed the pain in my hips and hip flexors. With an immediate cooling sensation, I recommend this for all of your hotspot injuries. It’s an Award-Winning Marijuana Cup Winner!
Ingredients: Distilled Water, Hemp CBD Infused Organic Olive Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Aloe Vera, Vegetable Glycerin, Shea Butter, Acetyl Alcohol, Emulsifying Wax, Organic Essential Oils: Eucalyptus, Spearmint, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Clove, Menthol, and Camphor.
For cuts and scrapes try the HEALING CREAM:
After running the 12 miles and 25+ obstacles at Tough Mudder in Lebec, California, I was pretty cut up. Not to mention the issues distance runners have with subungual hematoma on our toenails. This cream does the trick and allows for speedy recovery.
Ingredients: Distilled Water, Hemp CBD Infused Organic Olive Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Aloe Vera, Vegetable Glycerin, Shea Butter, Acetyl Alcohol, Emulsifying Wax, Organic Essential Oils: Organic Egyptian Geranium, Tea Tree Oil
They also have a DAILY CREAM and a bottle that includes THC. Each of these products work well on their own as well as together in tandem. The Sore Muscle Cream certainly aided me after those 26.2 miles at the marathon.
