In this new series, we’re breaking down exactly how our products work, so you can wow your friends with a little plant science. First up: Recovery Cream.

What it does: 

  1. Relieves back, neck & shoulders
  2. Soothes tender & sore feet
  3. Reduces aches & soreness
  4. Improves flexibility
  5. Relaxes tight quads & calves

How it works: 

To fully “get it” you must first understand how inflammation works in the body. 

When you work out, get a paper cut, or scrape your knee (among other things), your immune system triggers an inflammatory response.

Symptoms like pain, redness, warmth, and swelling are signs that your body is working hard to heal itself.

Acute inflammation isn’t always a bad thing, but the chronic kind damages healthy cells. 

Where Recovery Cream comes in: 

Recovery Cream supports the body’s ability to fight inflammation, thereby helping to reduce soreness and aches. 

It does this through non-euphoric cannabinoids sourced from hemp, like Cannabigerol (AKA CBG) and Palmitoylethanolamide (AKA PEA). 

The Cream also contains essential oils like lavender, which has aromatherapeutic benefits. A review of studies on lavender’s impact on anxiety found that lavender essential oil administered via massage appears effective, though more research is needed.  

Rosemary and peppermint essential oils help the cannabinoids to be better absorbed into your skin.

These essential oils contribute to the product’s warm woodsy scent.

Recovery Cream in the wild: 

“At night after I get out of the shower, when I’m nice and warm, that’s when I use my Recovery Cream. I tried using some CBD creams without much success before I found the Recovery Cream. I was really excited because I like the way that it smells and I found myself being like, ‘Oh, wow, this actually feels really good.’” –dancer and owner of NYC fitness studio The Ness, Aly Giampolo

“Since I’ve started running again, I ice my knee afterwards (to combat that still-nagging knee pain) and then apply the Recovery Cream. It just completely stopped the swelling around it, and it allowed me to get back out into what I want to do with my life.” –outdoor enthusiast Jess Swanton
