Again, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank NisonCo and the cool folks at Bluebird Botanicals for connecting with me, providing some education and also some products to review. If you’re like me, I had some real questions about CBD products. Raquel from NisonCo and Mike from Bluebird Botanicals were kind enough to facilitate an FAQ interview which you can read here: Answers about CBD products. Bluebird sent me some samples of their product Hemp Sport Lotion to try and I’m glad they did! ~DesertRat
So you may have read my other CBD product review on a product from Moon Mother – which was also a great product. I was excited to try the Hemp Sport product from Bluebird Botanicals.
So, cutting to the chase – this stuff works great. Again, I am astounded with how quickly it works. The lotion absorbs nicely, no greasiness at all. This product has slight warming and cooling effects also. By no means like IcyHot but you can feel it very subtly. It worked great with “regular” aches and pains, stiff necks and other middle-aged ailments. My wife uses a wheelchair and was having significant hip pain recently, and a good application of the product at bedtime made her feel better for sure. She’s also an amputee and suffers from significant phantom pain periodically. We tried the product on her during a recent episode and although it wasn’t a silver bullet by any means (not that we expected it to be), she did feel it gave her some relief, even for that. The product smells interesting – not perfumey by any means – more earthy. It doesn’t smell bad – just interesting.
From their website:
A specially-formulated CBD cream for those with active lifestyles. Made with hemp extract, ginger, arnica, mint, jojoba, and coconut oil. Vegan, non-GMO, and cruelty-free. Clinically tested and proven safe for skin.
Our CBD lotion is available in three convenient sizes: trial-sized (100mg cannabinoids per 0.5 fl oz pouch), travel-sized (700 mg cannabinoids per 3.4 fl oz tube) and full-sized (1,250 cannabinoids per 6 fl oz tube).
You can purchase the product ONLINE. A 3.4 oz tube is going to cost you right around 40 bucks. Don’t let the price scare you – you don’t need very much, and its effectiveness makes the cost worth it. If you suffer from aches, pains, and muscle soreness as a result of your outdoor recreation, I would definitely recommend this product!
