11 CBD pain relief, lotions, bath bombs & more perfect for CBD Day


Written by:


I have been a regular CBD user for years. Why? I have found that CBD products soothe my aches and pains, and nourish and calm my skin and hair.


What is CBD? If you are not familiar, CBD is an extract from Cannabis, which is found in Hemp plants. There are other Cannabis extracts (or Cannabinoids), like CBN and CBG, that are often combined with CBD to broaden its benefits.


With CBD Day right around the corner, I set out to test and try a slew of new-to-me CBD products. From refreshing seltzers to soothing salves, I now have many new favorites to add to my CBD arsenal!  Below, you will find my roundup of topical CBD products.  Click here for my favorite ingestible CBD products.

Note that prices are accurate as of writing.


Vitality CBD Salves ($49.99 and up)

These organic, lab-tested CBD salves are available in three formulas designed to address pain, relieve tension, or promote relaxation. They are available in 500mg CBD and the more powerful 1000mg CBD and contain additional nourishing ingredients like grapeseed oil, castor oil, MCT oil (coconut), and beeswax. The Lavender & Peppermint version is for relaxation, the Clary Sage is for tension, and the Eucalyptus is for chronic pain.  My favorite is the Lavender & Peppermint because I love the smell.  I found it to be effective for various aches.

Figaro Apothecary Relief Balme ($65)

This wind-up tube allows for a mess-free application on sore areas on the body. The formulation, which has a soothing fragrance,  contains organic botanicals like Ginger, Turmeric, as well as a proprietary Cannacomplex made with Green Echinacea and CBD. The balm is designed to provide relief for sore muscles, cramps, and other aches and pains.



CBD Freeze: Roll-On for Pain Relief ($39.99 – $79.99)


This roll-on provides quick relief for aches, pains, and muscle tension, thanks to a combination of menthol and Broad Spectrum Hemp. Just roll it onto any areas of concern and you’ll immediately feel a soothing cooling sensation.



Recover CBD Serum, 500mg ($25)

I enjoyed using this formulation on achy areas because the serum texture allows it to be massaged in easily and it leaves no residue.  In addition to CBD, the serum contains beneficial essential oils like lavender and jojoba.





VXN Wellness Cream Cleanser ($19)

Favorite CBD brand ColorUp has now re-branded as VXN Wellness! They have lots of products, but I had a chance to try this one, which helps to gently cleanse and nourish parched skin, while soothing any redness and irritation with ingredients like hemp seed and grapeseed oil. I also really liked their Illuminating Masque, which i a creamy consistency, so it’s easy to apply and remove. In addition to CBD, contains ingredients like mallow, lemon balm, and yarrow, and it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and looking glowy.


​​Muri Lelu Bloomrise Sativa Serum ($135)

This hydrating facial serum feels fantastic on the skin – you can feel it working! It has a lightweight texture that works well under face moisturizers. Thanks to CBD and 13 active botanicals, including fruit oils and squalene, it can help reduce fine lines and hyperpigmentation and calm red or irritated skin.


Jaxon Age Defying CBD Moisturizer ($29.95)

This cream has an elegant, whipped texture and feels much more expensive than it is.  With ingredients like CBD, hyaluronic acid, and squalene as well as floral extracts like plumeria, rose, and gardenia oils, skin feels hydrated, calm, and smooth, but not oily.


Hustle Butter CBD Luxe Cream ($34.99)

This rich, pleasantly-scented cream contains 500mg of pure CBD isolate and can be used all over the body as a soothing moisturizer as well as on isolated areas requiring extra TLC, like dry and itchy spots, sunburns, and achy muscles.  It can also be used as a nourishing lip butter.


Osmosis Beauty Therapeutic Body Oil ($168)

This powerful body oil nourishes and calms the skin with 1500mg of broad spectrum CBD, as well as botanicals, like calendula and arnica. To avoid going through it too quickly, I blend a few sprays with a light body lotion, which works like a charm!



Susan’s Own Full Spectrum CBD Bath Bombs ($16 each)

I love to use CBD bath bombs at the end of a long, stressful day. These bombs smell amazing and contain 100mg of full-spectrum CBD as well as biodegradable glitter and real rose and lavender flakes. Available in two fragrances;  soothing Lavender and an energizing Rose for an uplifting, energizing bath.   https://susansown.com/



LEAF + FLOWER Haircare Collections (prices vary)

This CBD hair care brand contains an active cannabinoid blend of CBD, CBC, and CBG, which, according to the brand, are extracted under high pressure and extremely low temperatures for maximum efficacy.  There are three formulas; Repair, Volume, and Curl.  My daughter and I had a chance to test the Curl collection of shampoo, conditioner, and curl cream, and the products have since become some of our favorite curl products. The products have a subtle, pleasant scent, and the products leave our hair feeling nourished and our curls defined.

These are some of the most innovative CBD products you can buy


CBD is one of my favorite ingredients. It has been a popular topic of conversation these days largely due to the recent legalization of marijuana in several states combined with an influx of new studies about its benefits, which include reducing redness, soreness, and stress both internally and externally.


In case you’re not familiar, CBD stands for annabidiol, which is an extract from the cannabis plant. Marijuana is also from the cannabis plant, but don’t worry, these products contain very little to no THC, which is the ingredient in marijuana that makes you feel loopy.


I’ve written about CBD products before, but I wanted to start from scratch and find new and innovative favorites. I’ve been tasting and testing for the past few months and am delighted to share my findings!

There are so many ways to consume CBD, including tinctures, drinks, and even chocolate!  Here are several that I’ve been enjoying lately.

This duo of Juna’s bestselling organic CBD tinctures is designed to clear brain fog in the morning with the Balance formula and encourage a good nights’ sleep with the Nightcap formula. The Balance formula contains CBD and full-spectrum hemp oil as well as MCT, which is known to help with brain activity. The Nightcap formula contains CBD plus CBN–another extract from the cannabis plant which is known to be sedating–as well as shamomile and passion flower.





This sweet-tasting hemp-derived broad-spectrum extract is dispensed by a dropper like a typical CBD tincture, but because it’s a water-soluble liquid rather than an oil, you can drop it into your mouth or mix it into your beverage of choice. It’s also encapsulated into nanoparticles for faster absorption of 4x cannabinoids so you don’t have to take as much as you typically would.





Want to try a little bit of everything? This pack contains six different tinctures in one clever pack. There are formulas for immunity, sleep, and preventing inflammation. At only $15.99, it’s an affordable way to see what formulas work best for you.




This tea, which contains 22mg of CBD, plus black tea, coconut pieces, and raw cacao nibs, is a tasty morning or afternoon boost. The Hemp Division has several other delicious CBD teas, including Sleep, Focus and Calm.


The Hemp Division


Chocolate lovers will enjoy indulging in this delicious bar of small-batch artisanal chocolate! Each piece contains 15mg of CBD from American-farmed hemp. I would suggest taking 1-2 pieces per sitting.


Or, if you’d like to try a little bit of everything and the chocolate, get the Self-Care Relax Bundle, which contains bath bombs, CBD capsules, samples of gummies and more, for $99.99 (value $121.96).


Green Roads


I find CBD drinks to be a good substitute for alcoholic beverages, especially if you are trying to cut back. These portable powder packets contain 20mg of organic, hemp-derived CBD and lemon flavor from lemon juice and lemon oil. The powder can be dissolved in cold or hot liquids (I use them in seltzer, which creates a yummy foam when mixed with the powder). Can be used anytime, during the day or at night.




Gummies are a popular and yummy way to enjoy CBD. Each vegan Pure Craft gummy contains 25mg of USA-grown nano-optimized (this allows for faster absorption) broad-spectrum CBD. Each jar holds an assortment of 30 fruit-flavored gummies that have no CBD aftertaste. The recommended dose is 1-2 gummies.


Pure Craft


CBD is beneficial to the skin, too! I find that CBD-infused facial products help calm redness and reduce irritation, and my picks have a wide variety of treatment ingredients to address everything from acne to aging.

A CBD/retinol blend? Yes, please! The retinol in this luxurious facial oil helps to smooth the skin and reduce fine lines, and 150mg of USA-grown cannabidiol helps to soothe and reduce redness. I use this at night with a facial massage tool and follow with a night cream.


Paula’s Choice


This creamy, non-foaming, botanical cleanser is a dream to use on both dry and oily skin. It’s soothing, smells amazing and even removes makeup, thanks to grapeseed and hempseed oils.




This spray essence is divine and can be used before or after makeup to prep or set, as well as to protect the skin from environmental stressors. I’ve taken to keeping it on my desk to use as a refreshing, hydrating mist during the day. The bottle is beautiful and has an amethyst crystal at the bottom to provide balance and calm.



The Still Beauty


This eye serum contains a plant-based retinol alternative, plus CBD and aloe, and it has a cooling roller applicator to help smooth and hydrate the delicate under-eye area. Excellent under makeup or as a night treatment.




This rich and creamy serum helps to calm redness-prone skin while helping to diminish fine lines and deeply moisturize. The formula contains broad-spectrum CBD, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and a botanical infusion, which includes elderflower and chamomile. The serum smells great and can be used day or night, with or without a moisturizer.




CBD body products are interesting because when you apply CBD on large areas and key absorption areas, or even soak in CBD-infused products, you can reap the benefits both internally and externally.

This set of four transdermal patches is made with clean, plant-based ingredients, including USDA organic-certified cannabidiol and hemp. This set includes one each of four patches, Energy, Plz. for an energy boost; Sex, Plz. to increase libido; Relief, Plz. to help with workout recovery; and Sleep, Plz. to encourage a good night’s sleep.


Fleur Marché


This ultra-cooling sports recovery spray has 360-degree spray technology so you can reach any area of the body. The spray contains 500mg of phytocannabinoids that help to soothe sore muscles, promote healing and relieve inflammation.


TIDL Sport


This roll-on contains 375mg of CBD from whole-spectrum hemp extract, along with soothing, fragrant oils, such as lemongrass, lavender, rosemary and peppermint. You apply and massage it into the bottoms of your feet, the wrists, and the back of the neck. It smells absolutely divine and is a wonderful way to prepare for bed.




This indulgent body butter contains 400mg CBD, along with soothing and nourishing ingredients, like shea butter, vitamin B5, calendula, aloe and chamomile. I love the rich, non-greasy texture and that it doesn’t smell like cannabis, which I find that many CBD-infused body creams do.


Brown Girl Jane / Nordstrom


If you prefer a moisturizing oil, try this lightweight skin-nourishing dry oil that contains 100mg of CBD. Non-greasy and fragrance-free, this body oil is fast absorbing, reduces redness, soothes irritation and prevents dryness.




Ideal for softening dry, bumpy skin, this sugar scrub contains a blend of ingredients, including 300mg of hemp CBD, sugar, grapeseed oil, honey and royal jelly. After you scoop the last bit from the glass jar, you can purchase the refill, which is packaged in a resealable paper pouch, saving you 20%.
