We tend to get a lot of questions regarding the most effective way to manage pain. Is a topical treatment better than supplementing with the oil? Is there a certain amount I should be using? How long will it take to kick in?
Firstly we would like to note that the best way to treat pain is typically by attacking it from both sides (an external application as well as an internal application). This can be achieved by pairing a low to moderate dose of oil under the tongue in addition to applying a pain cream to the affected area. The benefits of using both oil and cream is that you will need much less of each product to achieve pain relief. Additionally, when using the oil, it enhances the effect of the topical treatment so as to make it more potent, and last much longer.
That being said, it is possible to achieve positive results by simply supplementing one or the other (the oil or the cream). The rule of thumb here is that a topical treatment will be more effective in the extremities, such as the hands, wrists, feet, knees, neck and shoulders. Alternatively, a pain cream will be less effective for pain management in the core of the body, such as the chest, gut, back, and pelvis. Therefore, for the core, supplementing the oil under the tongue would be most effective. When using just one of these methods, it is important to remember that the CBD may need to build up in your system for a few days before you start to feel relief. This means that consistency in dosing is key. Start with a moderate amount, and work your way down.
