I am one of 100 million Americans that suffer from chronic pain. Every day for the last few years I have had a throbbing pain in my foot that will not go away unless I have surgery, which in itself is still not a guarantee. Some days the pain is manageable and other days it is unbearable. One thing that I use to manage the pain is topical products.
Hemp and cannabis topical products are not all created equal. Many seem to be no more effective than standard moisturizing lotion. Others are so greasy that it’s not feasible to use them on a regular basis. I look for topicals that are effective and also able to realistically be used in all settings. I recently got my hands on a sample of a product that fit that bill – Sarco Freeze made by Arcanum.
Sarco Freeze is comprised of several ingredients but one of the most important ones is activated hemp sourced from Mary’s Nutritionals. It is one of the best topicals I have ever used. It goes on smooth and provides a freezing-type relief to the areas it’s applied to. I used it primarily on my foot but I also on used it on sore muscles after a long day of yard work and it did wonders. It only took minutes to get total relief and I was hurting from head to toe.
Based off of the product maker’s website it looks like Sarco Freeze is geared more towards athletes but it can also help anyone that suffers from aches and pains. I am planning on getting some for a basketball tournament I have coming up and will be handing out samples to my teammates. We are all well past our athletic prime and I guarantee the Sarco Freeze will be put to good use.
The activated hemp in Sarco Freeze ‘increases the bioavailability of other healing and soreness relieving ingredients like arnica montana, menthol and lavender, roman chamomile and rosemary essential oils’ according to Arcanum. One thing that I really like about the company is that their products are paraben free, sulfate free, non-GMO and made in the USA. I have never found a hemp rub that can say all of those things AND still be effective.
Another thing that I like about the company is that they dedicate a portion of every Arcanum Sports Performance purchase to providing and funding alternative health options for United States veterans. That is a very worthwhile cause and knowing that a portion of each purchase goes to helping veterans via healthier options for harmful pharmaceuticals is really awesome.
If you suffer from soreness or discomfort and/or want improved recovery time in between workouts you should really consider giving the Sarco Freeze a try. It comes in three different sizes so you can try out a smaller size first, and then inevitably buy the larger sizes when you see how well it works. To be clear this is not a paid article. I like to plug good products made by good companies!
