Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
The PlusCBD Oil Extra Strength Hemp Balm has a distinct smell that features touches of honey, mint and, of course, hemp. Combine those elements and you’ve got something amazing! Overall, the smell of this hemp balm is strong and delicious. It’ll likely be the first thing you notice once opening up the jar. Actually, it might be the second thing. You might also notice just how well sealed the balm is, a nice touch that ensures quality control. Even the visual appearance of the jar itself expresses high quality and a clean, medical-grade feel. There are no artificial dyes or fragrances in their product, which we love—all natural all the way!
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
This product is not intended for oral consumption!
The consistency of this balm is perfect—we love how easy it is to work with! It’s very smooth, with a soft texture that makes applying to sore areas easy. Scooping just the right amount of balm out of the jar is also pretty easy, unlike some beeswax-containing products that might tend to change consistency depending on the temperature. While the beeswax does give this balm some firmness, it’s definitely not too much. The PlusCBD Oil Extra Strength Hemp Balm has a deep golden color that looks nearly as good as it feels.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
You won’t have to wait long to experience the healing effects of the PlusCBD Oil Extra Strength Hemp Balm. Apply to areas where you have aches and pains, and you can expect to experience relief within 15 to 20 minutes. We noticed that mild muscle soreness was totally relieved within 20 minutes, while another user noted arthritis pain was relieved in about 30. In the world of CBD topicals, that’s fast!
This relief is accompanied by a soothing, warming sensation, which is very nice and easily noticeable! You can thank the peppermint oil for that. We noticed these feelings of warmth—and reduced pain—remained for up to 5+ hours after application. The more you use, and the more frequently you apply, the longer effects tend to last.
Best used for
The PlusCBD Oil Extra Strength Hemp Balm is best used to alleviate pain, swelling, muscle soreness, and inflammation. It’s especially effective in the treatment of arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. This balm is also great at soothing dry skin and related skin issues. The balm just feels incredibly moisturizing. Basically, anybody who has chronic pain, or even pain from things like work or sports injuries, should highly consider using this topical.
