Sisters of the Valley CBD Salve 450 Milligrams
Sisters of the Valley has been crafting balms, salves, and other goodies out of ethically sourced CBD since 2009. Now it totes one of the best CBD salves on the market. It's a combination of solid coconut oil infused with hemp, beeswax, liquid coconut oil hemp concentrate, Vitamin E oil, Calendula oil, and lavender oil for its pleasant scent. Plus, every batch is lab tested for potency, the results of which you can request. You know, if you're that kind of nerd.

Papa & Barkey Releaf Balm 180 Milligrams
P&B's Salve Formula Releaf Balm is the perfect balance of numbing and cooling to blast away aches and pains. At first, its concentrated cannabis-infused salve relaxes and calms your body. This is followed by an activated warmth and then a cooling sensation to directly address inflammation and chronic pain. Additionally, P&B's light scent is a mixture of cannabis, eucalyptus, tea tree, peppermint and lavender plants, and isn't overpowering. Rub this on anything that hurts, then lie back and wait for the magic to happen.

Rub a dab into your skin and wait for the soothing sensation to begin. You won't regret it.

Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Lotion 100 Milligrams
Lord Jones has not-so-quietly established themselves as the "it" brand for CBD products. Their High CBD Formula Body Lotion is one of the reasons why. It's a soothing, rich, luxurious lotion designed to be absorbed into the skin upon contact. Not only that, the lotion's formulated to create a cooling sensation upon contact to offer unparalleled relief. You can choose between Lord Jones' signature fragrance of fresh notes of sage, mint and green citrus, but can also opt for the unscented version if you think such scents aren't manly.

More importantly, this CBD balm has a refreshingly pleasant scent that mixes grapefruit with cardamom so you won't smell like the medicine cabinet in Bob Marley's house.
