Our puRelief CBD cream (5000mg in each of the different scent options) was among our earliest products. We were planning a topical product with about 500mg, similar to most of our competitors, but a car accident changed that plan. My wife was hit by another car which resulted in back pain that grew worse with time. I decided to make a very strong version of our lotion which was not yet a finished Carolina Pure product back then. I put in far more CBD than I had in my prior test batches to see if it would help with her back.
Well, it didn’t. She had ruptured a disc and it required surgery. But I had enough of the very strong lotion left over that I gave it to a number of people who all LOVED it. It was then that I realized the value in a high potency CBD topical and I switched our development of topicals to all have generous amounts of CBD for maximum relief.
Topicals: CBD Benefits vs CBD Side Effects
Probably the best thing about CBD lotions and other skin products is that they work within minutes of the first application for most inflammatory ailments. People ask me: “how often can I use CBD cream” and the answer is “as needed”. Because our products contain such a large amount of CBD, one application often provides relief for an extended period of time; a little dab will do you. So the benefits become apparent pretty quickly as the pain diminishes.
As for side effects of external use of CBD, I am not aware of any at all. As with all things hemp, more data is needed because research in this area was only made legal recently. However, I have seen no literature regarding side effects of CBD lotion and I give it to both of my kids frequently.
It is also important to remember the difference between CBD vs THC: THC is also effective for pain but it is psychoactive and can be absorbed transdermally through your skin. Absorption through the skin is kind of the point, but CBD is NOT psychoactive and does not present the same risk of failing a drug test that THC does.
How Much Does CBD Cream Cost?
We have a number of topical products. Our puRelief retails for $70 (but if you subscribe, you get 25% off all Carolina Pure products). If this seems like a lot, check our competitors. You can find CBD cream at Walgreen’s and pay a little bit less for their strongest topical which retails for $50 and has 750mg of CBD. You are “saving” about 25% at Walgreen’s but you get 85% less CBD! To get the same amount of CBD at Walgreen’s, you would need to spend $333!! And if you subscribe for our product, it costs $52.50, anyway. This is pretty much how it goes with the vast majority of our competitors who charge far, far more than we do.
So, how much does CBD cream cost? The answer is, you can pay as much as you want to pay, but we suggest you just try ours and put all the leftover money to better use.
What About My Pet with Arthritis?
CBD is great for dogs and other animals. However, you don’t want to use our human products on a furry pet because lotion and fur don’t mix well. We have a topical product for pets that works great on their fur AND skin. You can find it here.
I hope you found that helpful and I’ll be writing more posts about our products and hemp in general soon!
