How Much CBD Do I “Need To Knead”? – An Overview Of Dosing CBD Topicals

So, you’ve just received your Aspen’s Maximum Relief Salve in the mail. Congrats! Now you may be wondering how much CBD is enough to aid your muscle discomfort.

Truth be told, CBD dosage isn’t an exact science. There will always be a bit of experimentation involved as you evaluate how much CBD works for you. However, we have a few tips that might help you quickly determine your perfect CBD topical dosage. 

How Much CBD Topical Should You Use? – A Few General Suggestions 

First and foremost, you must remember CBD from topicals does not enter your bloodstream. As we’ve mentioned in a recent post, CBD molecules can’t penetrate the skin layer. The topical you apply to your joints will instead get absorbed by the local CB2 receptors. 

Why is this so important, you ask? Since there’s no risk of skin penetration, you don’t have to be as careful dosing CBD topicals as you would with CBD capsules, tinctures, or edibles. Please don’t hesitate to use as much CBD as you need to feel our topicals’ effects. 

That being said, we understand customers want to get the most “bang for their buck” when using our products. Hey, we’ll admit it, CBD isn’t cheap! Thankfully, Aspen’s Maximum Relief Salve has a generous 1,000 mg of full-spectrum CBD, making it one of the most potent products in the industry. 

Customers often see great results using a pea-sized amount of Aspen’s Maximum Relief Salve on the surface of one knee or shoulder. You can slightly increase this dose for your lower back, or reduce it for a smaller area like your jaw. We recommend scheduling three of these “CBD sessions” into your daily routine for the best results.     

Rub this salve deep into your pores to help your CB2 receptors absorb as much CBD as possible. After a few minutes of applying, you should feel a cooling sensation thanks to the high traces of menthol in our salve. Of course, if you have any questions about our salve, please reach out to our team on this Contact Us page.

What Takes Aspen’s Salve “To The Max?”

You may be surprised that we only recommend using a small pea-sized amount of Aspen’s Maximum Relief Salve for joint aches. Sure, CBD is pretty remarkable, but is it really that strong?

Keep in mind that there are a lot of secondary features that give our signature salve its Superman strength. As mentioned in a previous post, our proprietary topical blend includes all-natural herbs like Boswellia serrata and Arnica montana, both of which have been used to relieve muscle aches for centuries. We also include healthy doses of medical-grade magnesium, peppermint, and menthol in Aspen’s Maximum Relief Salve. All of these compounds work together to enhance CBD’s relief properties. 

Also, our CBD topicals are made with the revolutionary Bio-Nano™ technology. Using the latest advances in nanotechnology, our scientists are able to shrink CBD molecules up to 700-times smaller than a strand of hair. While this doesn’t mean our Bio-Nano™ CBD can penetrate your skin, it makes it much easier for your CB2 receptors to absorb the CBD goodness. Hence, you don’t need as much of our product to get amazing results.  

Want Super Strong CBD Effects? Try Our Mellow Mint Tincture!  

Although topicals are fantastic for localized relief, CBD could have a more substantial impact when taken internally and externally. If you’re looking to enhance the benefits of Aspen’s Maximum Relief Salve, we suggest adding our Mellow Mint Drops to your daily routine. 

Our lab-verified tincture contains 1,000 mg of organic, full-spectrum CBD, plus healthy omega fatty acids and pure peppermint oil. Adding just one to two full droppers of this refreshing tincture to your diet might be all you need to supercharge your CBD experience.
