What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound from the cannabis plant, produced from hemp or marijuana seeds. From these plants, you get the oils and various products that you see almost everywhere. Components in the composition of CBD have relaxing and wellness properties, but at the same time, they WILL NOT get you high. All due to the low content (less than 0.3%) of the element Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
How Does It Work?
Cannabinoids trigger processes in our body as they bind to receptor cells known as cannabinoid receptors. Woven into every cell and tissue of the body is a system of receptors and enzymes called the Endocannabinoid system, which is designed to interact with Cannabinoids like CBD. The Endocannabinoid system is the body's master operator of Stability and balance; it keeps the numerous body functions in a smooth flow. CBD helps it function optimally, especially in times of stress, pain relief, or dysfunction. Balanced muscles naturally feel more powerful and efficient. Our goal is for you to be able to revitalise your body's Endocannabinoid system with LuceMae, naturally and organically.

Frequently Asked Questions About CBD Muscle Balm
Got questions about CBD and CBD Muscle Balm? We’ve got answers. Below, we’ve provided detailed answers to the most common questions we receive about CBD Balm and the CBD muscle balm products we sell within our online shop.
What Are CBD Muscle Balms?
CBD Muscle Balms are topical formulas that include an all-natural cannabidiol infusion. Our collection features both a cooling Wintergreen and a heating Tiger Balm which will have your muscles singing in no time.
We also included our signature CBD Muscle Balm in this collection, as it seemed to be a perfect fit. This incredible formula allows your hands to glide smoothly and deeply into muscle tissues, creating the ideal conditions for a deep and satisfying massage. Add these products to your daily routine, or share the love with your favourite people.
The testing performed on our CBD proves that our items contain 0% THC, making them non-intoxicating. However, they are packed full of natural components, such as vital cannabinoids, which deliver all of the hemp goodness that your muscles are sure to crave.
How Do I Use These CBD Balms?
Using these topicals is easy. Select the desired portion of the product, and rub the solution gently into the skin. When using the Balms feel free to dig in and apply as much pressure as you need. All skin types will respond well to these products, making them ideal formulas for liberal application.
To use the balm, just give the pump a quick tap, rub the hands together, and you’re good to go. For the balms, open the screw top, drag the fingertips over the balm, and allow your body heat to melt the topical solution. The balm will naturally adhere to the fingertips. Apply the desired amount to the chosen area of the body, and rub until the balm is visibly absorbed.
The UK Food Standards Agency has recommended a total daily consumption of 70mg of CBD for healthy adults. These CBD topicals are not meant for consumption, but moderation is still recommended. Apply these topicals to the area of choice one to four times daily and use a moderate dose that gets the job done. Topical application of cannabidiol typically has a fast onset and can last for two to four hours.
What Makes Our CBD Muscle Rubs the Best?
Our LuceMae CBD products are backed by excellent customer reviews and top-shelf ingredients. Our cannabidiol is extracted from the finest CBD hemp flowers cultivated in Colorado. The seeds used for cultivation are tracked down and chosen for their superior genetics. These genetics allow for a maximum yield of CBD while reducing trace THC production.
Once harvested, this hemp plant material is sent directly to our processing facilities. Here, the CBD is extracted in ISO clean rooms, which provide finalized extracts with incredible purity. No residual solvents, toxins, or pesticides remain in our CBD items. Only pure, unadulterated natural goodness.
Once these extractions are complete, our cannabidiol is handled according to cGMP equivalent procedures until these items are ready for sale. Along the way, these products are tested to ensure their legal compliance, non-psychoactivity, and natural potency. These LuceMae CBD items are guaranteed to contain consistent and active levels of a variety of cannabinoid compounds.
Are These Balms CBD Muscle Relaxers / CBD Muscle Relaxants?
The science behind CBD muscle relaxation is relatively new, and no conclusive statements can be made about the ability of cannabidiol to negate muscle pain. However, the endocannabinoid system is closely related to muscle relaxation, stress reduction, anti-inflammation, and more.
A variety of factors can play into muscle tightness. Exercise, work, posture, diet, stress, and more can influence the way we hold and experience our muscles. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) helps to reduce pain signals, reduce inflammation, and bring about a general sense of ease. A healthy ECS also helps to ensure proper mood balance and can help to manage muscle tightness.
Stimulation of CB1 and CB2 receptors with AEA (an endogenously produced cannabinoid) has been linked to smooth muscle relaxation and muscle contraction reduction. While dilation of smooth muscle does not directly relax your skeletal muscles, it can promote healthy blood flow to these regions. This blood flow can help stimulate muscle recovery and reduce perceived tension by delivering nutrients and oxygen to the muscles in need.
CB1 activation also influences the Ca2+ output of our cells, helping to create a healthy balance between relaxation and contraction in our skeletal muscles. Fascinatingly, CBD is known to boost AEA levels in the body by inhibiting the FAAH enzyme. This creates an exciting connection between cannabidiol and muscle relaxation, but it does not prove causation!
With time and extensive research, we will identify if CBD can produce the same muscle relaxation initiated by balanced CB1 and CB2 receptor activity.
How Does CBD Muscle Recovery Work?
Muscle recovery relies on a variety of factors. These factors include rest, inflammation, blood flow, hormonal balance, and stress management.
Rest is pretty straightforward, but we could all use a little extra help getting into a zen state of mind. Luckily, the endocannabinoid system helps to promote a sense of ease and helps to regulate sleep duration/stability. Accessing this robust network will quickly help amp up your rest and recovery game.
Inflammation is a natural part of the recovery process, allowing the muscles to repair and rebuild. Properly handling this inflammation can have you ready to exercise again in no time, with less pain and hopefully more gains. Fortunately, the endocannabinoid system is well-renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties.
The endocannabinoid system helps to manage blood pressure and blood flow in a variety of ways. As your smooth muscles relax, more blood can reach areas in need. When receiving proper blood flow, your recovering muscles can enjoy all of the nutrients and oxygen required to return to optimal conditions quickly.
Hormonal balance is also crucial when it comes to muscle production. It’s no secret that testosterone helps to influence muscle growth.
In addition to this, both cortisol and insulin levels are biomarkers associated with muscle production and recovery. CB1 activation influences insulin activity and the endocannabinoid system’s ability to reduce stress helps lower cortisol levels. The result is an ideal endocrine environment for muscle recovery and growth.
CBD Muscle Spasms Relief ~ How Can CBD Products Help?
Nutrient deficiency in muscles can lead to frequent muscle spasms, making the ECS’s ability to promote blood flow an excellent way to combat these painful and destabilising occurrences. Some cannabinoid infusions have been examined for their potential in reducing muscle spasms. However, the style of non-psychoactive CBD products that we offer still requires further examination before they can be recommended for this use.
For total care, we recommend relying on both CBD topicals such as these balms and CBD oral/edible products. This allows the body to enjoy an internal flush of cannabidiol, while troublesome tension areas can be addressed externally with CBD topicals.
Are CBD Balms Legal in the UK?
CBD Balms can be purchased legally within the UK and across many territories in Europe. These CBD items contain only pure cannabidiol, no residual THC. The 0% THC content of these products makes them available for legal distribution.
The World Health Organization has recommended that cannabidiol products featuring under 0.2% THC be sold freely worldwide. The UK Food Standards Agency has listed CBD as a novel food ingredient and is currently investigating its potential applications.
Meanwhile, cannabidiol has become a household name, and it is used for a wide variety of purposes. Families across the nation are enjoying CBD, from children to seniors. Even pets have CBD products, designed to maximize the wellness of your furry friends.
