CBD products are everywhere - with good reason. 

More and more people are looking for pain relief, better sleep, or improved performance. This is where CBD comes into play. With the range of CBD options currently on the market, many need help finding the best product for their needs.

CBD is a non-habit-forming and non-toxic remedy for joint pain relief. Not only that, but it also boasts inflammation-reducing properties and full-body wellness benefits.

Why CBD Gel?

There are many ways to take CBD, so why use gel?

A CBD product's method of delivery directly affects the range of benefits you receive. Treatment can be more or less focused based on your unique needs. For pain and inflammation, topical products are the best way to target localized areas of discomfort.

CBD comes from the hemp plant which has less than 0.3 percent THC (the psychoactive component in cannabis plants). CBD won’t leave you with intoxicating effects — meaning you can use it every day, without worrying about becoming “high”.

Topical products don’t directly enter the bloodstream, but this isn’t necessary to achieve results. CBD penetrates the skin and binds to the cannabinoid receptors, where it regulates the pain and inflammatory response. This results in reduced inflammation and pain relief, without the side effects of oral pain medications.

CBD Effects on the Body

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are several diseases for which CBD may have therapeutic benefits. 

Some of the most common reasons for topical application:

  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Inflammatory Diseases
  • Rheumatoid arthritis pain
  • Degenerative conditions

According to a survey conducted by the Arthritis Foundation, more than 2,600 arthritis patients were asked about their experience with CBD for arthritis-related pain. The results were substantial. “Of those currently using CBD to manage arthritis symptoms, roughly 3 out of 4 report it was either effective or very effective in relieving several symptoms.” More specifically, participants report a significant improvement in physical function, morning stiffness, sleep, and fatigue.

Canodyne CBD Gel combines 500 mg CBD isolate (THC FREE) with menthol and camphor for fast-acting pain relief. These ingredients work together to provide pharmaceutical strength relief from chronic pain that affects the quality of life. 

Can CBD Absorb Through The Skin? 


While orally administered products can be great for mood and performance needs, our CBD Gels are better absorbed through the skin and are designed to provide rapid relief. CBD gel is applied directly to problem areas for quick, effective pain management.

You may hear of people applying oils and tinctures to the skin, but this method doesn't represent optimal use. It will likely result in more CBD on your clothes and bedsheets than where you actually need it. 

How to Use CBD Gel

Canodyne CBD Gel is designed for easy use and maximum absorption. As a result, it can be used by those who need quick, on-the-go relief. A quarter-sized amount to localized areas of pain and inflammation provides direct and immediate relief.  

Here’s the best way to use topical CBD pain gel:

  • Apply the desired amount to affected area up to 4 times daily
  • Rub gel in until it’s thoroughly absorbed
  • Instantly reap the benefits of pharma-grade pain relief

CBD gel works best when combined with a routine. For superior results, consider integrating it into your everyday regimen. Morning, post-workout, and after work... Use it whenever you experience the most pain.

Another bonus: Gels are generally more resistant to sweat. This means long-lasting therapeutic effects, even when exercising!

Adults searching to improve overall joint health can use CBD gel to target problem areas. The infusion of camphor and menthol provides instant, soothing relief while the CBD absorbs into the skin.
