Why we love it
This pain cream from our CBD Wellness line TribeREVIVE contains cannabinoids, cooling effects and anti-inflammatories – along with nourishing ingredients such as aloe and vitamin E that are great for your skin. CBD may help with setbacks such as back/shoulder pain, strains, bruises, arthritis and carpal tunnel.
CBD applied topically interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in your skin, which may assist with pain relief and inflammation. CBD accumulates in your tissues over time, so more regular use will lead to better results. You can learn more in our blog post CBD For Pain: How It Works
Let’s break it down by ingredient to understand how this cream can help you feel better!
THE COOLING TRIFECTA
Cooling greatly reduces your body’s ability to feel pain in a specific area, so we are going all in with not just one but THREE of nature’s strongest topical analgesics:
- Wintergreen: The active ingredient, methyl salicylate, is closely related to aspirin and has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties
- Menthol: Blocks the calcium current along the nerves responsible for detecting temperature, creating a cooling effect perfect for sore, achy muscles
- Peppermint: Analgesic, antispasmodic, and anti-inflammatory
Harvard Medical School has a “unifying theory of disease,” suggesting there is mounting evidence that inflammation is a common underlying cause of many ailments and degenerative diseases. Inflammation is also behind many chronic pain problems – and we’re here to knock it out (!) with:
- Arnica: Reduces inflammation, eases muscle pain, and alleviates stiffness. Arnica helps bruises dissipate faster by reducing swelling while stimulating blood vessels.
- Wild Marjoram Oil: Calming and anti-inflammatory
- Jojoba Oil: Strong anti-inflammatory; also calms eczema and rosacea
- Aloe Vera: Contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C, and it is highly anti-inflammatory. Aloe can help treat burns, acne and dry skin.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST: NOURISH YOUR SKIN!
- Vitamin E: Strengthens the skin barrier, moisturizers, soothes
- Helichrysum Essential Oil: Helps speed up healing of wounds, burns, and rashes, and reduces scarring. Also promotes healthy skin cell growth and regeneration.
- Green + White Tea: Green and white tea have have catechins, which are like free radical hunters (antioxidants)
- Safflower Seed Oil: Moisturizes and balances skin
How to use
Apply generously to area with pain and massage into the surrounding area, as needed. You may want to apply every 30 minutes at first, and need less and less over time. Great to keep at your desk or on your nightstand.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I use CBD cream for muscle pain? Also, should I use CBD cream for lower back pain
CBD appears to be effective for back and muscle pain. Studies suggest that cannabidiol interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, helping regulate pain levels.
Additionally, CBD cream may temporarily alleviate soreness and reduce inflammation, which helps with sore muscles from working out, or if you have a short-term strain in your back. Moreover, CBD shows to have relaxing properties, which can provide additional relief.
That said, it is essential to note that no large-scale research has yet supported the use of CBD alone to cure pain. And more research is needed to confirm these effects. If you’re considering using CBD for back or muscle pain, speak with your doctor in advance and see if it’s the right option for you.
Can I use CBD cream every day?
Absolutely! Topicals containing CBD can be applied as frequently as needed. CBD is a highly tolerated substance and is safe to be used every day. The cream actually works better with regular use, because the CBD begins to build up in the surrounding tissues and work better over time.
However, if you have sensitive skin or are prone to skin irritation, it`s recommended to limit your usage of CBD cream and consult with your doctor before usage.
Additionally, ensure to check the ingredient list for products that contain synthetic fragrances or other substances that you may be sensitive to. Always start with a small amount and see how your skin reacts, then you may increase the dosage.
Should I use CBD cream for joint pain?
Many customers find CBD topicals to be helpful for joint pain in the knees, elbows or hands, because it reduces the inflammation in these problem areas and provides a soothing effect. For short term relief, we recommend using CBD cream on your joints every 4-6 hours until you start to feel better. The effects will acculumulate over time with more regular use.
That said, it is essential to note that no large-scale research has yet supported the use of CBD for joint pain. If you are experiencing severe joint pain that does not subside, speak with your doctor immediately.
