Muscle soreness is an uninvited guest ninety out of hundred times. You know that your muscles will hurt after a few hours of strenuous exercise. Or you could simply be reaching for a book on the top of a shelf while you get an ankle spasm.  We all have been there at least once in a lifetime.

The fact that it is common does not make the suffering easier. You will have to wait for a few days before your muscle returns back to normal. But, not many of us can reschedule our appointments and responsibilities according to a sudden and unexpected twist of events.

Here are a few remedies to treat muscle soreness:


You might have heard of CBD before. Doctors recommend using CBD for pain and inflammation widely. Moreover, the WHO has also recommended using CBD. Several studies have proved the effect of CBD on reducing pain and people who have used it have testified about the cannabinoid positively.

CBD reacts with our endocannabinoid system and regulates

  • pain
  • inflammation
  • anxiety
  • mood
  • sleep

Other than these, CBD is also used to treat epilepsy and seizures. According to the nature and position of the source of pain, two CBD products are most effective in treating muscle soreness.

Topical Products- When you need immediate relief from the pain caused by lifting a heavy table or playing badminton too hard, you should apply and rub CBD muscle balm directly above the area. You could also use the best CBD oils for muscle recovery for a more potent effect.

Oral Products- Not all muscle pains are caused by stretching or playing. Sometimes, a sleepless night can cause pain at random places. Treating pain in such a condition is usually possible by taking CBD orally as CBD tablets or tinctures.

Herbal Remedies

CBD is one of nature’s medicines to regulate pain. However, it is not the only one. Nature has gifted us with many other natural remedies like ginger, arnica, cayenne, etc.

For better and quicker effect, use these herbs together.

CBD Massages 

Massage is one of the oldest techniques used to treat muscle soreness. Even though it was originally practiced in only a few countries like China and India, it later spread to other continents. You do not have to necessarily go to a spa to get a massage. You can do it yourself. All you need to do is to rub CBD oil and massage. CBD oil is an excellent choice because of its benefits. Massage slowly without applying much pressure in the beginning. You can gradually increase the pressure and speed to have better effects.
