If you have ever suffered from a frozen shoulder, then you will understand the pain I am in right now. I have had one before. My left shoulder, around 7 years ago so, when I felt the familiar pain starting to increase on my right shoulder, I was understandably worried.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t stop it from coming and had to give in to the inevitable BUT I have been able to manage the pain and know (sort of) what I need to do.
I have started to try some alternative remedies and pain relief. CBD is becoming more widespread as an acceptable form of pain relief and sites, such as Leaf Nation, are great sources of information. So, as CBD is so much more prevalent than last time, I decided to give some products a try.
Here is a list of some great options if you are suffering.
Hapihemp CBD+ Oil Roller
When I saw this product, I knew straight away that it would be a brilliant idea. The Hapihemp CBD and Oil Roller is small and compact enough to carry around in a pocket or handbag but really helps when you most need it. The roller means that the oil is dispensed easily and there is no mess. It smells amazing!
It is great to target relief on temples, wrists, your neck, feet and hands too. As well as highly concentrated CBD (each bottle contains 300mg), it is full of therapeutic grade essential oils which include arnica, boswellia, turmeric and rose geranium. On top of this, the company only use organically grown premium hemp which means it is pesticide and solvent free and contains no THC. It is also GMO free and Vegan friendly. Priced £19.99.
HapiHemp Full Spectrum CBD Oil 5% Natural
As an alternative to the Hapihemp roller, you may like to consider their natural CBD oil. It has a guaranteed concentration of CBD which has been certified and specified. All ingredients are GMO free, vegan friendly and gluten free and the product has been supercritical C02 extracted. This gives you the peace of mind that you are purchasing a super clean highly filtered product. The oil is full spectrum and, because many components interact with each other in your body, it produces a stronger influence, hence ‘full spectrum’. Priced at £37.99.
Naturopathica CBD+ Turmeric and CBD+ Wellbeing
Vitamins and minerals are always important to take at any time, so these CBD+ bottles are two great options.
The CBD+ Turmeric is great for aiding with normal collagen formation for the function of bones and cartilage and it contains a concentrated dose of full spectrum CBD, plus Curcumin & Vitamin C. Turmeric is claimed to reduce pain, inflammation and stiffness related to your joints. The CBD + Wellbeing Capsules contain a concentrated dose of full spectrum CBD plus Vitamins A, B1, C D2, B12 & E, which help to contribute to the normal function of the immune system. Both priced at £39.99.
Cubid Re:vive Stay Active Gel
Something I have found really helps with any ache or pain and specifically that of a frozen shoulder, is a cooling gel. This Re:vive Stay Active cooling anti-inflammatory gel is light and quickly absorbs into your skin. Containing Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil 500mg, it is enriched with eucalyptus leaf extract and designed to quickly absorb into the skin to help with joint and muscle recovery. Priced at £30 (save £20 if purchased with the Peppermint Oil below).
Cubid Re:set Peppermint Oil Drops 500mg – 1000mg
These Re:set peppermint infused botanical tasting CBD oil will help you achieve your inner calm and help to relax the mind. It certainly helps ease the pain too.
Designed for fast absorption, these drops enable you to reap the benefits of CBD quickly by ingesting under the tongue. Take 4-6 drops under the tongue and hold for 20 seconds before swallowing. To be taken in the morning or evening, or whenever you feel it necessary. Do not exceed more than two pipettes daily. Priced at £35-£55 depending upon the strength purchased (save £20 if purchased with the Stay Active Gel above).
