Anyone who knows me well, knows that I like getting outside and kicking some mountain butt. I’m in my upper fifties age-wise, so sometimes those mountains kick my butt right back! In this case, my recent hike was a knee kicker!
After completing a recent section of the Appalachian Trail on the NC/TN border, I was having pretty significant knee pain after 1,600 feet of elevation descent. I felt exactly like I looked in this picture: sore and tired!
I had previously received a complimentary sample of CBD Soothing Balm from Natural Native, so now was the perfect time to give the balm a try.
Before the first application of the CBD Soothing Balm, my knee was quite painful and swollen. I generously applied the balm to the affected knee and was delighted to discover that there was no overpowering odor.
Strong odor is one thing that usually keeps me from using other products; I just simply cannot tolerate overpowering chemical smells.
The scent of the CBD balm however, was very subtle and natural, while also being quite pleasant. No stinky balm here!
After application of the balm, there was no hot or cold feeling on my skin. The balm absorbed quickly and did not leave my skin feeling greasy. I was able to get dressed right away with no worries of any unabsorbed balm staining my clothing.
Then the wait for potential pain relief began. I thought I would have to wait hours for any type of pain relief. Wrong! The CBD balm started working right away and I noticed my knee was feeling less painful after about 15 minutes. The swelling seemed to be diminished after an hour or so. Bonus!
I applied the CBD Soothing Balm a couple more times throughout the night, and by the next morning, my knee was significantly improved with less pain, less swelling, and less inflammation.
I love this balm! I was also quite pleased to discover that Natural Native uses only organic farming practices and are governed by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. Their products are 100% free of THC and are verified with independent lab testing.
I definitely recommend Natural Native CBD Soothing Balm. If it can keep my old knees pain and inflammation free after a super hard hike, I’ll bet it can work for you too! If you have aches and pains from any activity, you’ll want to give it a try!
Disclosure: I received a complimentary sample of the product but all opinions are my own.
