Vape pens have been around for a few years and have been most commonly used for marijuana and nicotine. But they have also become increasingly available for those looking to use CBD for pain management. The device works by heating up a small amount of CBD oil until it boils, this allows the user to inhale the vapor.

For those suffering from muscle and joint soreness, vape pens can be the best form to find relief. This is because you can achieve the quickest results through this method as the vapor enters the bloodstream faster than any other form. While this varies person to person, you can start to feel results in as little as 30 seconds.

Vape pens can be a great option for someone looking for relief from inflammation because they are easy to use and very discreet. Due to their convenient size, you can carry them easily in a purse or pocket so it’s ready whenever you need it. We carry a CBD vape oil kit that is suitable for everyone, no matter their familiarity with the product and it is equipped with everything you need to start vaping CBD.

CBD Tincture for Pain

Tinctures are one of the most common ways that CBD oil is taken and it’s a simple way to begin using the compound if you are new to the product. It’s usually taken with a dropper straight in the mouth, but it can also be added to food and drink if that’s more your speed. Just know you will experience quicker results if you take it directly under the tongue than if you consume it through food.

This is the second quickest method to absorb CBD as it usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes to feel results. This also makes it useful for assisting in the treatment of anxiety or inflammation. For the best results, put a drop underneath your tongue and hold there for about a 90 seconds before swallowing, allowing the cannabidiol to be absorbed quickly.

Third Coast Health carries many excellent tinctures made from hemp that have heavy concentrations of CBD. They are naturally flavored with fruits and plant terpenes as well to provide a better taste for the user. We also carry a CBD oil concentrate which has a much higher concentration of CBD. This is typically used for more serious soreness or inflammation issues. It can be added to any food or drink but is most effective when taken under the tongue just like the tincture. A grain of rice serving size is a good starting place for this due to the higher potency.

CBD Edibles for Pain

Most people who are familiar with edibles associate them with marijuana, but you can also consume CBD in the same way. Due to the grassy, dirt flavor, it receives from hemp, most people don’t like to take it straight, but luckily most food and drink disguises its aroma and flavor. In some states, you can even find restaurants that make CBD-infused food and drink. Keep in mind that ingesting CBD will take much longer than any of the other methods listed here. It can take upwards of 30 minutes since it has to be digested first.

If you are interested in edibles, Third Coast Health carries two great options. Our CBD gummies are made with hemp oil and can be a great way to take CBD every day as a daily supplement. They have a great taste, making them easy to consume and are both vegan and gluten-free! A fun way to relieve sore muscles and joints is with a chocolatey edible treat! Our CBD chocolates are the most delicious way to deal with inflammation.

We recommend taking CBD edibles about an hour before you wish to feel the effects as they will take time to digest.

CBD Lotion, Salve or Balm for Pain

Topical treatments like a CBD lotion or CBD salve can be very useful if you suffer from muscle or joint soreness or types of pain like muscle stiffness or lower back pain. It works best if rubbed directly onto sore muscles or joints as the balm may help to ease any inflammation at the site.

Topicals can be great because they don’t get absorbed into the whole body, instead, the CBD stays local, providing relief exactly where you need it. These balms and lotions can have different effects on different people, some might feel results right away while others it may take several hours to notice relief.

Our CBD salve not only contains CBD but several other plant extracts like violet and arnica to give it an amazing smell as well. It’s made with beeswax which makes it easier to spread onto the body and allows the CBD to penetrate into the skin. This is a great product for any athletes who are looking for a new way to alleviate muscle soreness after intense workouts as well.
