Muscle MX CBD balms are the perfect solution for those pesky localized concerns such as the nagging ache in your lower back or that spot on your neck that constantly demands attention. Our CBD balms are the result of meticulous research and development, ensuring the perfect balance of ingredients, potency, and scent. Our CBD balms provide a spa-like experience while effectively easing your discomforts. Made with broad spectrum CBD, our products are specifically designed to alleviate discomforts where they hurt.

Crafted with a dedication to quality, our nourishing Recovery CBD Balm boasts a harmonious blend of CBD, menthol, tea tree, and eucalyptus. This combination offers a soothing, cooling sensation while partnering with your body's endocannabinoid system to swiftly ease discomforts. 

Meanwhile, our Activate CBD Balm is formulated with a rich combination of CBD, arnica, camphor oil, eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil, menthol, beeswax, and vitamin E to help kickstart your day. These ingredients work in tandem with cannabidiol (CBD) to keep your muscles loose and supported, empowering you to conquer each day with renewed vigor.

We pride ourselves on using only natural ingredients in our topicals. We firmly stand by our commitment to being GMO-free, sourcing sustainable hemp from trusted farms right here in the USA. To prove our promise of quality, all of our CBD products undergo rigorous third-party testing, with certificates of analysis available online, ensuring you always get the best of the best.


The magic behind CBD's effectiveness is intricately linked to the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a vital cell-signaling mechanism within our bodies, primarily responsible for maintaining homeostasis, or a stable internal environment. It's a complex network that works diligently to regulate numerous bodily functions, from our mood and appetite to sensations of discomfort.

CBD plays a significant role in supporting this system. When you apply CBD topicals to the skin, they interact directly with the ECS. Specifically, they can target and bolster CB receptors located at the source of discomfort, encouraging comfort and ease.

Another important component to consider is terpenes. These aromatic compounds are found in cannabis and many other plants. Beyond imparting a unique scent to our products, terpenes possess individual qualities that, when combined with cannabinoids like CBD, can amplify the overall benefits.

It's essential to distinguish between CBD and THC, both of which are cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp plants. While THC is known for its psychoactive effects or the "high" typically associated with cannabis, CBD works differently and does not cause psychoactive effects.

Why Use CBD Balm For
Muscles, Joints & Tendons?

Our CBD Balms are designed to work perfectly together. Activate heating CBD Balm revs up your muscles & joints before your workout and Recovery Cooling CBD Balm cools them down. This combo is great for injury prevention and pain management for aching muscles, tendons & joints.

Unlike consumable CBD gummies or CBD oils — which combine CBD-rich hemp extract with a carrier oil like hemp seed oil or coconut oil — topical CBD products like our balm sticks aren’t absorbed into the bloodstream. Instead, they engage with cannabinoid receptors right at the source of application. 

When used on sore muscles, stiff joints, or any affected area, the CBD gets to work quickly, delivering its soothing benefits within minutes. Because it doesn't need to pass through the digestive tract or meander through the bloodstream, our balm offers a direct approach to support your body's wellness needs and soothe localized discomfort efficiently.


Before your workout use Activate CBD Balm to your muscles & joints to warm them up. Afterward apply Recovery CBD Balm to aching areas to soothe them.

For Best Results

Learn More About CBD Balms


Our products contain hemp-based CBD, which is federally legal to be purchased anywhere in the U.S. without a marijuana card or doctor’s prescription. Please check your local laws to verify that CBD is legal in your state.

Properties of CBD will vary for each individual depending on height, weight, and the quantity of CBD taken. Because there are no intoxicating ingredients with CBD oil, there is no “high” effect; start with small amounts and gradually increase with each use until reaching desired results.

The CBD oil used in our products is derived from industrial hemp plants in conjunction with US Federal Law. All of our CBD oil contains less than 0.3% THC (our topical products contain 0.0% THC). Although very trace amounts of THC are present, it is highly unlikely that you will test positive for THC in a drug test. We do advise speaking with your doctor or employer before use.

With proper storage, quality is maintained up to two years for Muscle MX products.

We choose not to own farms, and instead have strong relationships with several excellent farms right here in the United States. This gives us the advantage of choosing the best hemp plants for our ingredients and rejecting any raw materials that do not meet our standards.

Every batch or products that we manufacture is accompanied with a specific Certificate of Analysis provided by a third-party. These reports include tests and results for parabens, heavy metals, microbials and cannabinoid content. Levels of specific compounds are analyzed and clearly shown on each respective COA.

Yes, here is why: The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is the largest collection of biological receptors in the human body. Endocannabinoid receptors are found on the surface of various cells throughout our nervous systems, immune systems, and organs. Various studies have shown that the ECS helps regulate biological processes like pain, inflammation, memory, energy metabolism and more. The main goal of the ECS is to help your body maintain homeostasis, or balance.

While CBD is federally legal, each state has their own laws regarding CBD regulation. So you may want to check the laws in whichever state(s)or foreign countries you are traveling to. Read CBD laws by state here.
