Why CBD Balm Is Good For Tendonitis

Today we will be talking about what CBD cream or balm like Mellow Organic's very own Mellow CBD Soothing Balm can do for Tendonitis.

What is Tendonitis?

Tendonitis or sometimes referred to as Tendinitis is an inflammation of the cords that attach the muscle to the bones.

  • These cords are called tendons

  • Tendonitis causes pain, swellings and tenderness outside of joint areas

  • Tendonitis can happen to any of the tendons like the shoulders, wrists, elbows, knees and heels.

  • Long term tendonitis can lead to tear of tendons

  • Tendonitis is caused by sudden injury, but is most frequently caused by repetitive movements overtime.

  • Treatments for tendonitis include rest, physical therapy and medications

Tendonitis needs special care as it causes swelling and pain bringing discomfort to your livelihood. The symptoms will last for a few days to weeks.

If you neglect it for a long time it could lead to Tendinosis which is a condition that causes degeneration of tendon muscle that can lead to chronic pain, joint stiffness and immobility.

Tendinosis happens when the collagens in your tendons can not regenerate.

Here's how CBD balm can help tendonitis:

Pain relief:

CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which is a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters in your body. The ECS is responsible for regulating pain sensations, mood, stress, appetite, sleep and the immune system.

The two most important receptors in the ECS are CB1 and CB2 receptors. Both of these receptors are present all over your body and they interact with molecules called endocannabinoids.

The more endocannabinoid released to the system the more your body can handle pain.

CBD also sends signals through receptors in the brain that help control pain sensations.


CBD is more actively involved with CB2 receptors than CB1. CB2 receptors are predominantly found in the immune system which is responsible for regulating inflammation.

When CBD triggers CB2 it releases adenosine which helps cytokines produce anti-inflammatory components in reducing redness, swelling, rashes, pain or skin irritation.

When putting on CBD balm or cream like Mellow CBD Soothing Balm, gently rub the cbd topical on painful/wounded areas. Rub until the cream is absorbed through your skin. Avoid applying directly to open wounds or around the eye. CBD balm is meant for external use only.

Now why should you use CBD balm?

  • Most important of all, CBD is safe for use.

  • CBD is great for pain relief and Anti-inflammation.

  • Not only will it alleviate pain symptoms, but it will rid stress and anxiety also.

  • CBD also promotes better sleep.

  • CBD is non-addictive.

  • CBD is nonintoxicsting so you don't have to worry about feeling high.

  • Beware CBD may come with side effects like nausea, drowsiness or dry mouth especially when taken orally like CBD oil.

  • CBD may interact with other medications. Ask your doctor or pharmacist first if you want to try any CBD products.
