Altwell Sports Stick With CBD Review
Altwell Sports Stick With CBD
Teacher’ Comments: A nice smelling and effective alternative to those menthol-camphor sticks
Getting old sucks. Things I used to do with impunity now are likely to cause nagging aches and pains. Rather than give in, though, I fight back with stretching, weight training, ibuprofen and a variety of topical analgesics.
The Altwell Sports Stick with CBD has worked as well as anything I’ve ever tried. I’ve used it on some tight shoulder muscles, on a sore knee and on the mother of all calf cramps.
Even better: unlike a lot of other products whose smell will make your eyes water, it has a pleasant woody, ever-so-slightly pepperminty scent.
I’ll put in my usual cautions here: I have not conducted any sort of scientific testing on this. There is no way for me to measure whether my muscles have gotten better faster than they would have with another product — or with no product at all. There could be a placebo effect at work. However, I believe that it works.
The Altwell Sports Stick with CBD has a bunch of interesting ingredients, most of which are botanicals said to have anti-inflammatory properties, such as almond, cacao seed, tamanu seed, and of course, CBD. Here’s the full list:
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Almond), Cera Alba (Beeswax), Full Spectrum Hemp Flower Distillate (CBD Oil), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Calophyllum Inophyllum (Tamanu) Seed Oil, Canarium Indicum Seed Oil, Parfum
The consistency of the Altwell Sports Stick is solid, yet smooth. It is a bit like an underarm deodorant, but creamy and not at all crumbly. I slather it over the affected area, and then rub it in.
As with all Altwell products, the sports stick is sourced from Colorado hemp, and tracked from seed to shelf. The company says it will provide certificates of analysis for any product purchases.
