Icy Hot vs. CBD
For decades golfers have fought through the pain with pain relievers, creams and ointments to distract them from the pain just long enough or just enough to get through a round of golf.
Do you use ICY HOT or other Menthol Products for Pain?
Products like BENGAY and ICY HOT have been a pre-round routine for many, but do you know how those products work?
WEB MD states: “Icy Hot works by causing the skin to feel cool and then warm. These feelings on the skin distract you from feeling the aches/pains deeper in your muscles, joints, and tendons.”
WHY CBD is a Better, Natural Choice for Pain Relief?
CBD works to minimize pain, not distract you from it. There’s a lot of science behind CBD but the main reasons CBD stands out from topical or even OTC medicines is that it naturally:
Raises the natural endocannabinoids (increase pain-relieving endocannabinoid levels)
Reduces inflammatory response (limits the release of particular proinflammatory signals, resulting in less pain)
Desensitizes pain receptors (TrpV1 pain receptors when activated, get hot & desensitizes nerve endings that signal pain)
Topical or Oral CBD?
Topical CBD solutions like the ROLL ON or EXTRA STRENGTH ROLL ON are by far the most popular CBD products for golfers.
