Why We Recommend
If you thrive on workouts and an active lifestyle, you don’t want to be slowed down by sprains, strains, bumps or bruises. No way! You want to get up and carry on. And that’s what the Windrush Organics’ Extra Strength CBD Sports Rub is designed to do — get you back to living your life.
The 500 mg of organic broad-spectrum CBD that powers this extra strength formula retains all the cannabinoids, terpenes and essential oils found in the cannabis plant except for THC, the psychoactive component. That means you benefit from what is known as the ‘entourage effect’. This refers to the increased effectiveness that comes from all the cannabinoids working together to boost CBD’s ability to fight inflammation better than CBD alone. It also means there’s no risk of failing a drug test.
But CBD is only half the story. In this potent formula the broad spectrum CBD is blended with 14 organic botanicals and essential oils including menthol, arnica and lavender. For all ingredients, see the ‘Additional Info’ tab below.
Finally, unlike other CBD rubs that can be greasy or ‘chunky’, this one glides on with ease and absorbs quickly into the affected area. It’s another reason we recommend it to restore performance wherever it hurts!
The Windrush Organics Extra Strength CBD Sports Rub is formulated with:
500 mg of Organic Broad-Spectrum CBD. The safe cannabinoid that injured, overextended joints and muscles crave!
Organic Sunflower Lecithin. Increases the amount of CBD that reaches the areas that hurt and speeds absorption.
Organic Menthol. A cooling, soothing botanical approved by the FDA and widely used to quiet inflammation caused by sports injury.
Organic Arnica Flower. For centuries, used for bruises, sprains, muscle soreness and joint health.
Organic Shea Butter. Not only is shea butter a well-known moisturizing agent, when applied to the skin it triggers cytokines, a category of signaling molecules that regulate inflammation.
Organic Coconut Oil. Another super-botanical that not only is good for your skin but also is used by massage therapists to relieve throbbing muscles and joints.
Organic Black Peppercorn. Studies suggest that this "king of spices," used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years, suppresses inflammation and swelling.
Organic Juniper Berry. Juniper berries are rich in flavonoids and essential oils and are often applied directly to the skin for wounds and discomfort.
Organic Lavender Essential Oil. Shown to provide relief comparable to the prescription medication tramadol.
Organic Rosemary Essential Oil. This herbal remedy enjoys a centuries-old reputation as a strong anti-inflammatory.
Organic Lemon Essential Oil. Sourced from the peel of the citrus limon plant, the scent alone is enough to make you feel better. Its soothing effect on sore muscles is a bonus!
Organic Cypress Essential Oil. The antimicrobial and antibacterial properties of cypress make it a natural for cleaning cuts and wounds.
In addition, organic arrowroot powder, organic castor oil and organic carnauba wax make this sports rub one of the smoothest, glides-on CBD rubs you’ll find, completely unlike other CBD rubs that can be greasy or ‘chunky’.
Look closely before you buy any CBD-enriched product online. Research reveals less than one third of them contain the amount of CBD claimed on the label! If you don't get the stated potency, you're unlikely to get the benefits you want. We recommend the Windrush Organics line of CBD-enriched products over the others we evaluated because of the company's total dedication to quality and transparency. Their formulas are handmade in small batches here in the United States and with each product you get a QR Code that links to the third party testing results for the batch used to make the product you're holding in your hand. That's the kind of transparency we like!
(Full disclosure: We don't want to confuse you, but we are testing whether customers like the name "Extra Strength" or "Sports Rub" better. The products are identical - same formula and same 500mg broad spectrum CBD.)
Apply liberally and massage in until product is absorbed. You will feel a chilling/heating sensation shortly after applying, this is a good thing.
For external use only. Do not apply to wounds, sores, or rashes. Store in a cool dry place.
