Pain Management FAQs
What products are best for aches and joints?
The best approach to target aches and joints pains would be combining a Tincture (oil) with a topical application like a balm. The tincture would target the neural response and internal inflammation and the balm for localised areas of pain.

Start with drops for an easy way to control the dosage. Gradually increase the amount you're taking every day until you work out the right amount for you. This is known as micro-dosing, it cuts down on waste and maximises the benefits of CBD.
