How Do I Use CBD for Pain?

First let’s get one thing straight: How does CBD work to reduce pain? It’s simple. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, and if taken consistently, it can reduce inflammation, which in-turn will reduce pain.

CBD comes in many different forms – each with a specific approach to joint pain relief. They can be taken orally as a capsule or tincture, or applied to the skin in the form of balm or salve. 

With so many CBD products out there it’s hard to know what product is right for you. So here is Mayv’s guide to help you decide:

The Balm

Recommended for the curious Spoonie.

You are new to CBD. That’s okay, we all need to start somewhere. Or maybe you just want targeted relief.

Mayv balm for targeted pain relief

Mayv’s CBD balm is a topical treatment that provides acute and chronic pain relief using full-spectrum hemp extract with naturally occurring CBD, skin-nourishing shea butter, and a soothing essential oil blend.

CBD balm does not reach the bloodstream, so it is best for localized pain and muscle relief instead of overall pain because the ointment interacts with the high concentration of cannabinoid receptors in the skin.

Topical products, like CBD balm, are applied by rubbing it on your skin, as needed, over any sore or achy parts. Just be sure to keep it out of those gorgeous eyes. Use them as needed, anytime and all the time. 

Mayv proudly grows and makes its organic CBD products in Colorado with strict, medical-grade testing by a third party. We utilize CO2 extraction in order to retain purity throughout the process. Every order comes with a batch code to view your product’s lab results. 

The Softgels

Recommended for the Busy Bee Spoonie.

An easy addition to an already busy regiment, the softgel capsules are a perfect way to be proactive about wellness and curb some unwanted side effects while improving overall wellbeing. 

Mayv softgel capsules offer on-the-go pain relief

CBD soft gels are capsules filled with full-spectrum hemp extract within a flexible coating designed for easy swallowing and high bioavailability. They are shelf-stable and have no flavor or smell. 

How do I use CBD soft gels for joint pain?

Mayv CBD softgel capsules are simply swallowed, which makes them perfect for incorporating with multivitamins or other supplements.  Consistency is key to health. Take one Mayv capsule at the same time every day. Adjust time or dosage as you see fit. Depending on what your intention is, we suggest taking a capsule a couple of hours before bed, or right before going to sleep.

Always ask your doctor before ingesting CBD, as it may interfere with other medications. A good rule of thumb is to treat CBD like grapefruit. Any medications that should not be taken with grapefruit should not be taken with CBD.

The Tincture

Recommended for the ‘Go Big, or Go Home’ Spoonies.

Mayv tincture drops offer fast-acting pain relief

For patients experienced with CBD or wanting to experiment with different doses, the tincture is the way to go. Fast-acting, a tincture is a concentrated full-spectrum hemp extract that is ingested orally.

How do I use my CBD tincture drops for pain?

Mayv CBD tinctures can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream by placing the liquid drops under your tongue and holding it there for at least 30 seconds before swallowing. You can take the tincture for immediate relief, but we also suggest incorporating it into your daily routine at the same time (before bed preferably). 

Always ask your doctor before ingesting CBD, as it may interfere with other medications. A good rule of thumb is to treat CBD like grapefruit. Any medications that should not be taken with grapefruit should not be taken with CBD.

Consume CBD with your Food or Drinks

Try mixing your CBD drops into practically any drink or food, including juices, tea, coffee, salad dressings, and sauces. 

Do not add tinctures to food and drink before cooking or heating them because the heating process destroys the cannabinoids and terpenes. You can add drops to hot foods, like soup and oatmeal, just before serving.

When ingesting tinctures, it is recommended that they are taken with food that contains some fat to increase absorption significantly since the cannabinoids are fat-soluble.
