I’ll admit I’m pretty out of the loop with any knowledge of CBD products. They’re pretty hot right now. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis. I’ve had many golf friends recommend CBD products for my many ailments I apparently whine about on the course, from bad back to stiff knee to tennis elbow/golfer’s elbow to my recent shoulder surgery.
I’ve finally given CBD a shot and I’m quite happy with the results. Specifically I’ve been gaming Muscle MX CBD “Heating Balm,” seen in the photo below.
I’ve been using Muscle MX CBD balm on my pesky left knee, my stiff lower back, and my right shoulder. I’ll put on the “Activate” balm at the beginning of the day or before a workout. After the workout or physical activity I’ll use the “Recovery” balm.
The balm is applied via a stick, just like one you’d find in a deodorant or antiperspirant. It goes on easy and stays on for quite a long time. I absolutely love the the menthol-like fragrance. After applying the balm I can feel a “cold heat” in the treated area.
Other Muscle MX Products
Aside from the balms, Muscle MX also offers CBD drops and lotions. I have yet to try those but hope to soon.
I’m finding with Muscle MX in play I’m able to loosen up quickly pre-workout. I recover quicker from workouts and big physical activities. Soreness subsides quicker and inflammation is reduced. As a bonus, I really love the smell and heating of the treated area.
