In my early thirties I dabbled in SoulCycle, swimming at the 14th Street Y, and three disastrous attempts at SLT. These days it’s running loops in Central Park, Y7 yoga, and contact combat. And let me tell you, hitting a weekly fitness goal isn’t always easy—especially when you’re rapidly approaching your 40s with a few minor injuries under your belt.
“CBD is extremely anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective. A normal person may use it to prevent conditions such as arthritis or even topically to prevent acne breakouts,” Dr. Shivani Amin, a physician and cannabis expert who is a member of the AMMPA (American Medical Marijuana Physicians Association), says. “I think CBD shows great promise for the future. It all boils down to educating the public about the correct usage and understanding the plant better.”

I’m no spring chicken and the occasional bout of soreness is now a fact of life.
So recovery is a big deal. And personally, I’m all about CBD (a.k.a cannabidiol)—the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis. It’s been having a moment these past few years, making appearances in all sorts of wellness and beauty products—from CBD edibles, to capsules, to transdermal patches, and beyond. But make no mistake. It’s not the passing health trend that activated charcoal and golden milk used to be.
Here’s what I have found most effective over the years.
Joy Organics carries a range of CBD products; this includes oils, gel capsules, face masks, energy drinks, gummies, and of course creams and salves. The company focuses a lot on health and environmental factors, so their shipping is carbon neutral, and all their farming practices are very eco-friendly.
Before hopping on a CBD routine, make sure to do your due diligence and research the most respected, high-quality, and safe brands. Be sure to also consult your doctor if you’re looking to manage pain through CBD.
Fab CBD’s topical cream and salve both do an excellent job of managing acute pain, pain resulting from medical conditions, as well as pain stemming from non-medical issues. CBD creams are especially effective at reducing pain that results from migraines, arthritis, IBS, epilepsy, and a host of other conditions.
They also believe in making CBD accessible to as many people as possible as they believe that CBD supplements help people live a well-rounded, healthy, happy life. All of Fab CBD’s products use all-natural hemp, found in Colorado.
CBD creams are a helpful and natural way to tackle some of these inflammatory and painful issues. While CBD oils work internally, CBD creams do an excellent job of treating external pains and issues which are an obstacle in pain relief.
Especially severe pain can be a massive hassle when it gets in the way of daily life. There are several people who are forced to live with this type of constant pain that they feel in their joints, muscles, nerves, or other central locations.
Their CBD topical products use a blend of coconut oil and/or olive oil as the base for the product. The prices are all very reasonable, and the variety of products gives the customer a range of options based on their likes and preferences.
