Have an achy back from sitting in an office chair all day long? If so, the CBD Topical Pain Relief Cream from Medix is a great option to help ease the pain — of your back, not the fact that you’re stuck at a desk all day long.
Derived from raw hemp oil, this 150mg cream contains no THC (the cannabis extract that gives you the giggles and munchies), so you can rub it on joints or painful muscles without being toast at work. A unique combo of CBD, crisp menthol and moisturizing aloe delivers targeted pain relief to joints, muscles and ligaments.
