Buy CBD Balm & Topical Relief CBD Cream
The CBD industry has grown phenomenally in the UK in recent years, and while the most popular products remain to be orally-consumed oils and edible gummies, the distinctive taste of hemp isn’t for everyone. As a result, CBD balms and creams have become increasingly well-received by the UK general public as they enjoy a multitude of health benefits without the need to ingest or inhale marijuana-derived CBD products. Cannabidiol-infused emollients can be applied externally and enable the user to target a specific body part or health issue. A CBD cream is designed for smooth topical application and can be effortlessly incorporated into your daily wellbeing routine.
At Mission C, our signature CBD muscle rubs and creams are of the highest possible quality, containing the finest, all-natural ingredients and potent levels of wellbeing-enhancing cannabinoids. These compounds interact closely with your endocannabinoid system and, in turn, assist in maintaining those harmonious physiological processes that we require for optimum everyday health.
What is a CBD Balm?
Often exuding from tropical plants, a ‘balm’ is an aromatic and therapeutic salve used topically for medicinal purposes, particularly wound-healing and fast relief from pain. Balms can be infused with a blend of health-boosting ingredients, such as CBD oil, and tailored to a specific wellbeing requirement such as respite from muscle aches and pains.
A topical CBD balm is an all-natural, fragrant lotion that contains pure CBD isolate together with carefully selected ingredients such as menthol and organic essential oils. Scientific research has proven how beneficial cannabinoids are for health and wellness, particularly sore muscle relief and reducing inflammation. Furthermore, our CBD balms are meticulously laboratory tested and contain 0% THC, which means they are entirely free of the intoxicating effects that can be associated with hemp pain relief cream. As a result, THC-free hemp cream is often used in aromatherapy practice for its calming effect and is 100% safe –and legal – to use.
If your muscles are craving a little TLC and you’re seeking a high-quality UK CBD balm that’s packed with natural cannabinoids, indulge in one of our luxuriously comforting creams. Our popular topical CBD collection features an anti-inflammatory joint and muscle balm, an intensely soothing heat salve and an invigorating, menthol-infused lotion that provides an instant cooling effect. Feature them within your daily routine, pre-and post-workout, or whenever your sore muscles desire a pick-me-up.
Benefits of Our CBD Balm
Our CBD balms are plentiful in their health, body and wellness benefits. Scientific evidence increasingly shows that topical CBD offers medicinal value; this is due to cannabinoids which closely interact with the endocannabinoid receptor system (ECS). The ECS is a biological system of naturally-produced endocannabinoids that bind to receptors to regulate various physiological activities that affect our daily lives. Cannabidiol is a very similar compound to those chemicals – the endocannabinoids – found within the human body and, as a result, has the ability to bind with cannabinoid receptors. This binding activity can bring about a number of positive advantages to the mind and body:
- Relief from muscle soreness and joint swelling – studies show that cannabidiol can help alleviate localised muscle pain, aches and inflammation when applied topically, making it a popular choice for relief from health conditions such as arthritis.
- Healthy skin – the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol have been shown to improve skin elasticity and hydration, in addition to aiding certain skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne.
- Improved mental health – Cannabidiol has been proven to assist in the reduction of stress and anxiety, as well as symptoms of depression.
In addition to the healthful benefits of cannabinoids, our topical CBD products offer a blend of natural products which serve to boost the wellbeing rewards of cannabidiol. Our pre-and post-workout balms contain menthol, for instance, and subsequently provide a powerfully therapeutic effect. This invigorating, cooling ingredient decreases blood flow to the skin and helps to reduce inflammation, while natural essential oils can have a pain-relieving effect. Additional potent ingredients such as arnica, camphor, shea butter and peppermint can further aid in reducing pain and joint inflammation. If you’re looking for the best CBD balms in the UK to alleviate similar symptoms, then look no further than our expertly blended hemp products.
What is CBD Balm Used For
Generally, CBD balms are purchased by customers to help with localised muscle pain. Additionally, some try CBD creams for their anti-inflammatory properties that can alleviate skin issues such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
At Mission C, we offer a specialised pre-workout CBD balm that explicitly warms the muscles and ensures perfect preparation for an intense workout. Complement this by using our post-workout CBD balm which aids in fast muscle recovery thanks to its cooling and soothing properties. We also offer a quality joint and muscle cream packed with natural extracts for an extra boost of sore muscle relief at any time of the day. Whatever your reason for choosing a hemp cream, our balms are very simple to use by applying topically to the target area and gently massaging into the skin until fully absorbed.

Our CBD Cooling Muscle Balm delivers a refreshing cooling sensation to the affected area instantly upon application. The soothing mix of pure isolate CBD, menthol, and natural essential oils such as peppermint oil, tea tree and shea butter work rapidly to decrease blood circulation and reduce inflammation for optimal muscle recovery.
How to Use CBD Muscle Balm
Our CBD muscle rubs are designed to be applied topically for external use. For an effective addition to your health and fitness routine, we strongly recommend applying Pre-Workout + CBD Heating Muscle Balm prior to your workout, followed by Post-Workout + CBD Cooling Muscle Balm after your energetic fitness session. Alternatively, apply Relief + CBD Joint and Muscle Cream to any aching areas throughout the day and night, as and when required.
We always recommend performing a patch test prior to using our topical creams for the first time. For optimum results, apply a thin layer to the desired area and gently but firmly rub in a circular motion until the cream is completely absorbed. Repeat frequently or as needed. Avoid contact with eyes, mouth and broken skin and wash hands thoroughly after use.
CBD Cream for Pain Relief
Studies have shown that CBD balms can be incredibly advantageous for aches, pains, and ailments such as arthritis. Whilst further research is required, research to date has concluded that joint inflammation can be significantly reduced by hemp pain relief cream, which not only offers anti-inflammatory qualities but can also provide nerve protection.
How to Use CBD Cream to Relieve Pain
Using Mission C CBD creams to relieve pain is always uncomplicated and requires minimal effort,
making them an incredibly well-received product amongst our customers. The simple act of massaging the CBD balm into the skin at the site of the muscle or joint ache triggers nerve endings and reduces the feeling of discomfort.
Furthermore, the action of rubbing encourages the process of absorption of the salve – and ultimately, the active ingredients - into the skin. Here, those ingredients begin to work as they bind with receptors found in skin cells, hair follicles and sweat glands within the localised area. Consequently, this simple act of massaging the hemp cream into the skin at the site of pain soon results in the desired outcome of reduced soreness and inflammation.
Why Choose Our CBD Balms & Topical Creams
All Mission C products, including our muscle balms and creams, contain the finest quality, all-natural ingredients. Our cannabidiol is grown organically and carefully extracted from hemp plants while minimising any traces of THC compound. After careful extraction and handling, the cannabidiol is finalised without traces of toxins or residues, leaving pure CBD isolate.

They can be applied quickly and frequently, and their positive effects are often experienced within an hour of application.

How Long Does CBD Balm Take to Work?
Following topical application to the desired area, users may immediately feel some effects. Depending on your choice of CBD pain relief cream UK, you may feel a pleasant warming sensation or cooling effect on the muscle instantly. As the product absorbs into the skin, pure CBD isolate interacts with your endocannabinoid system to help reduce aches, pains and inflammation. These effects may be experienced in as little as 15 minutes.
How Does CBD Muscle Balm Work?
CBD muscle balms work in the first instance by cooling down or warming up the muscle, depending on your product choice and the desired effect. This heating or cooling sensation is caused by additional extracts such as menthol, camphor and natural essential oils. Secondly, active cannabidiol compounds begin to work closely with your endocannabinoid system (ECS) by binding with cannabinoid receptors. This activity helps to regulate a range of physiological processes whilst reducing achiness, muscle pains and joint inflammation.
Is CBD Cream Good for Joint Pain?
When applied to the skin, CBD topicals can have a positive effect on joint pain, research demonstrates. Once absorbed, cannabidiol (the active compound in CBD balms) helps ease inflammation and joint pain. Research is still in the early days, but scientists are optimistic that over the counter relief from CBD products – especially topical products – is a good solution for aching muscles.
Are CBD Creams Good for Arthritis?
Studies to date have shown that CBD products, particularly topical cannabidiol oil, can help alleviate aches, pains and swelling associated with health issues such as arthritis. The CBD compound (cannabidiol) has been proven to have anti-inflammatory properties. While further scientific research on the effects of cannabidiol on arthritis is required, the evidence so far is promising.
Is CBD Legal?
CBD is 100% legal in the UK. Hemp-derived CBD products are also permitted, providing that they contain less than 0.2% THC. THC is the cannabis plant compound with psychoactive properties and can result in intoxication, or the well-known ‘high’, once it enters the bloodstream. On the other hand, CBD oil (cannabidiol) is sourced from hemp and is non-psychoactive; instead, providing several health benefits and symptomatic relief to the user.
