New wellness product may aid athletes with training goals

Our latest formulation, a blended CBG + CBD salve, created in partnership with Synaptix CBD,is an innovation in wellness which provides the best of both CBD and CBG – broad spectrum treatment of effective, non-psychoactive cannabinoids, and multiple anti-inflammatories in one easy to use topical!

You’ve probably heard of CBD, but what is CBG? Cannabigerol, or “CBG” has been increasing in popularity amongst natural wellness practitioners and cannabinoid scientists. Dubbed “the mother of all cannabinoids”, CBG is one of the first cannabinoids produced by the cannabis plant. CBG frequently develops into CBD or THC, depending on the individual genetics of the plant, but breeders and geneticists have begun finding innovative ways of isolating the cannabinoid for topical and oral use. If you’d like to learn more about CBG, we have a more lengthy article on CBG here.

Muscle recovery – An increasing number of our users are serious athletes. Many train high intensity contact sports like jiu jitsu and mixed martial arts. These practices can be hard on a body, especially when it comes to muscle recovery. More athletes are discovering the anti-inflammatory benefits of products like our therapeutic salve. Reducing inflammation tends to dramatically reduce associated pain, thereby reducing recovery time and helping our users achieve training goals.

Joint pain – One of our customers is a long distance endurance runner, competing in multiple ultramarathons every year. This activity causes massive stress on his joints. After using our salve, he has found reduced inflammation in and around his joints, and as a result, is able to recover faster and push his limits. A 2016 study, published in the European Journal of Pain, found that the application of CBD significantly reduced joint swelling in rats. The study concluded that topical CBD offers therapeutic potential for pain-related inflammation.

Anti-proliferation – While the FDA and other US based entities have not concluded research on CBG, some international studies have been conducted and may be worthy of consideration. A 2014 study conducted on mice indicated very promising results in CBG’s anti-proliferation qualities. What does that mean in layman terms? CBG may be effective at inhibiting tumors.
