Relieve 500 mg of ointment
After describing the tincture, it's time to move on to the ointment! This was an interesting product due to the nature of the product. I've tried CBD lotions before, but never ointments. I loved this product because of the strong mentholated fragrance (which reminded me of Vicks VapoRub) and the ease of use. Two ointments are listed on the Colorado Botanicals website. Today we're going to look at relief. The ointment is contained in a dark colored glass and weighs about 2 fl. Oz. Each jar contains 500 mg of ointment enriched with hemp and contains instructions that must be applied to the affected area if necessary. Note that this product is not for consumption and should not be used on open wounds, broken skin, or near the eyes.
My first reaction when opening the glass was that it was extremely strong. The first ingredient is aqua isopropyl alcohol. So be prepared for a light soak in your eyes. The other ingredients are the ones you would find in mentholated ointments (aqua isopropyl alcohol, menthol, carbomer, triethanolamine, camphor ethylhexylglycerol, Ilex Paraguariensis, Melaleuca Alternifolia, essential oil (tea tree oil), tocopheryl acetate, organic aloe vera, organic arnica, phenoxyumethanol, broad -Extract). There was an intense resemblance to Tiger Balm in both texture and smell, but now you get the added benefit of broadband CBD!
The menthol was very strong and overwhelming, but sometimes that's what you want in an ointment. The application process was unique, because although it looks like you can scoop it out with your finger, the actual ointment is very oily. When I touched it, it just seeped away and my finger was covered with the oil of the ointment. I was able to spread the oil generously over the area (I used the back of my hand for the test run). The oil quickly soaked into my skin and I felt a slight tingling in the area that I had coated. The tingling sensation was pleasant and gave me the feeling that it was working, although I had used a light smear instead of the actual jelly. The tingling increased slightly as my skin absorbed it. So keep that in mind when using it in the morning and forget about putting it on! I would recommend using this just before bed as a sore muscle relaxant, but you can use it whenever you think you need it!
