The “Magic” Solution for Muscle and Joint Pain
After 13 seasons in the NBA, where he collected 5 championships and 3 league MVP awards, Magic Johnson knows a thing or two about the toll sports can take on your body, and the different pain relief strategies available to current and former athletes, fitness enthusiasts, or anyone seeking relief from the aches and pains associated with sore and aching muscles and joints.
After many years as the most dominant guard in the NBA, Magic maintained a steady fitness routine, by working out and continuing to play basketball recreationally. But after playing elite-level basketball since he was a child, the years of hard play had taken their toll on Magic’s six-foot-nine frame. Soreness and pain in the joints are among the most common side effects of years spent in sports. Arthritis is likewise a common source of pain for many who played sports or make athletics a part of their lives. Many strategies and treatments exist for managing the pain associated with sports and fitness. Maintaining an active lifestyle, exercising, and continuing some sort of fitness routine actually help to mitigate and manage joint and muscle pain. For serious or chronic pain, pharmaceutical pain relievers exist, but carry their own side effects – they are powerful synthetic drugs and can cause dependency. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help, but they too are synthetic. Many fitness enthusiasts and former athletes like Magic have opted for a plant-based solution that’s a relative newcomer to the pain relief scene: Hemp.
Hemp has been known as an herbal supplement for centuries, but only recently have products made from hemp emerged onto the health and wellness scene as a potential pain relief solution. Non-THC-bearing strains of the cannabis plant are processed to create a botanical oil called hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil contains many beneficial ingredients that can assist with workout recovery, notably anti-inflammatory compounds. The hemp seed oil forms a base that is mixed with other ingredients to form various pain relief creams and balms that are rubbed onto the skin called topicals. For many hemp pain relief topicals, the hemp seed oil is mixed with over-the-counter pain relief compounds such as trolamine salicylate, which works along with the anti-inflammatories. In addition to the anti-inflammatory compounds, hemp seed oil contains a multitude of nutrients that are beneficial for the body as it recovers from physical activity including exercise, sports, or any fitness activity.
Hemp Pain Relief & Workout Recovery
While its other therapeutic properties have been known by different cultures for a long time, only recently has hemp oil been embraced by athletes and fitness enthusiasts as a possible pain relief solution. You don’t need to be a former pro athlete like Magic to use hemp pain relief topicals, even people who work out casually have adopted hemp oil products because of how it can enhance workout recovery. While Magic Johnson uses hemp pain relief solutions, it’s important to understand that no supplement is actually a magic cure for joint and muscle pain. It’s helpful to know what hemp pain reliefs are, and what they are not.
While hemp oil contains many ingredients that can benefit the body in multiple ways, it’s important to remember it does not contain THC – the chemical associated with the marijuana strain of the cannabis plant. Some hemp topical products specifically isolate a compound found in hemp called CBD, short for Cannabidiol. CBD is very different from THC, it has no psychoactive effect and it’s completely legal.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved pain relief topicals with 10% Trolamine salicylate, containing hemp seed oil for over-the-counter use, which means they can be bought by anyone without special restrictions or a prescription. However, the FDA has authorized hemp and CBD only as supplements, and no medical claims can be made about their effectiveness as pain relief treatments.
Though many fitness enthusiasts like Magic use them for workout recovery when they suffer from aching joints and muscles, no hemp or CBD product can claim to be a medical pain relief solution. Always consult with a doctor or medical professional before adopting a new pain relief management strategy.
But if you choose to use hemp pain relief topicals as part of your exercise or fitness routine, you can be sure there is no chance of accidentally getting THC – in fact, most hemp oil products for workout recovery are guaranteed to be THC-free.
Sports, Fitness & Pain Relief
You don’t need to be a former NBA champ like Magic to know the most common side effect of sports or any strenuous physical activity is muscle soreness and joint pain. The stress of walking, running, and lifting puts stress on your bones, joints, and muscles. Sudden movements, accumulated stress, or intense physical exertion can all trigger pain and soreness in the joints and muscles. Over time, the repeated stress of intense physical activity can cause a buildup of tiny injuries to your muscles and joints, especially the soft tissue that connects bones called ligaments.
These tiny injuries to the tissue are the primary cause of exercise-related pain through a process called inflammation. Inflammation occurs in response to damage to the muscles and the connective tissue between joints. Whether the damage is caused by sudden overexertion, injury, or accumulated microscopic stress over time, the tissue of the joints and muscles swell as they try to repair the damage. The pain you feel after a hard workout or long day of activity is caused by inflammation of the muscle or joint tissue.
Uncle Bud’s hemp pain relief topicals use pure hemp seed oil mixed with a 10% trolamine salicylate solution (an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory) to help to reduce swollen, injured tissue by reducing and reversing the body’s inflammatory response to joint and muscle damage.
When a hemp pain relief product like a topical cream is rubbed on the skin, the anti-inflammatory compounds penetrate the skin to reach the muscles and joints below. The anti-inflammatory compounds in the hemp seed oil, along with other over-the-counter ingredients (like 10% trolamine salicylate) in the cream, interact and help reduce the inflammation. Reducing inflammation also reduces the associated pain. When the swelling of inflamed connective tissue subsides, the pain associated with it lessens until the pain is reduced.
