Salve is a cannabis topical that is infused with active cannabinoids and applied to and absorbed directly through your skin.
Rather than ingesting CBD hemp oil orally, which will affect the whole body and can take up to 2 hours or more to fully experience the effects, the topical application of cannabinoids allows them to be absorbed directly into the affected area for faster and more focused onset of effects.
I first tried it for sore and stiff muscles.
I used it on a sore muscle on my neck after a long day sitting at the computer. It gave me immediate relief. Then I tried it on my husband when his elbow started aggravating him. He has tendonitis in his elbow and it and flares up sometimes when he uses it too much this helps give him some immediate relief.
