Over-the-counter pain relief is classified as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acetaminophen (Tylenol). Prolonged usage of these synthetic panaceas for pain relief can be addictive in the long term. Moreover, some drugs such as Opioids lead to pain killer tolerance, which interferes with pain management, among other side effects.
Safer alternatives are found in natural and organic plant-based solutions, where hemp is the best option available. Hemp extracts are legal in the United States because the dry plant contains less than 0.3% of the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content that makes you intoxicated. On the other hand, the product is rich in healthy non-psychoactive cannabinoids (CBD) with anti-inflammatory properties essential in pain management.
If You Work In Creative Fields, You Are At Risk Of Pain
If you are working in the creative field, you are more predisposed to experience muscle pain, lower back discomfort, stiff joints, neck and shoulder pain, and even an occasional muscle pull. These issues are caused by long working hours, incorrect postures, and physical muscle pressure.

When you are in pain, you are more likely to be more inactive and spiral out of control, exacerbating the already dire situation.

How Hemp Creams Work

Additionally, the common hamstring pain you may experience after a few hours can be remedied by massaging the muscles with the cream, and the relief is almost instant.
