Cannabis Salve for Athletes – The Natural Way to Deal with Inflammation and Pain 

Cannabis rubs, or salves, have fast become a go-to for athletes. 


The incredible anti-inflammatory effects of cannabis can have a tremendous impact on recovery and help to alleviate aches and pains. Combined with other natural powerhouse inflammation fighters like magnesium and arnica – salves powerfully assist athletes to shorten recovery time. 

A salve is a solid combination of oils and wax because it does not contain water; it has a longer shelf life and stays thick and stable. Salves are occlusive, meaning they trap moisture and absorb more slowly into the skin over time, so they tend to remain on the skin much longer than creams. Athletes love that CBD salves can be thrown in a bag and are easy to apply while on the go and for fast relief post-workout. 

So what exactly does Cannabis do for athletes?

It’s all about the Inflammation. While inflammation is the body’s response to any damage – an overly strenuous workout, a sprained ankle, etc., the more intense the inflammation, the longer the recovery time for an athlete. If the inflammation goes unchecked, it can increase soreness and swelling and keep an athlete off their feet. Athletes must keep their baseline inflammation low, aided by proper nutrition, sleep, and more. Cannabis is a natural way to impact inflammation for great results. It’s been shown in multiple studies to reduce inflammation due to the effect on the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a modulator of immune system activity. When the ECS is not regulated, the body reacts with an inflammatory response. Salves with THC pack more punch in fighting inflammation while also providing the relaxing effects of THC. With Autumn Brand’s commitment to clean cannabis, The Autumn Brand’s Muscle and Joint Salve has + 100% full-spectrum, estate-grown cannabis oil and 400mg of HTFSE-grade (High Terpene Full Spectrum) cannabis oil (ratio 1:7 THC rich) that helps rejuvenate, repair, AND relax.

But for optimal in muscle repair, athletes need more from their salve. Cannabis can’t do it alone. For best results, bring on two more powerhouses in muscle relaxation: Magnesium and Arnica. Autumn Brands Nourishing Muscle and Joint Salve join cannabis with these two natural ingredients for significant results. 

Here’s why Magnesium and Arnica help:

  • Magnesium is a crucial ingredient for muscle and joint relief: it is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including maintaining normal nerve and muscle function. The Autumn Brands salve has the highest concentration of calming, all-natural transdermal magnesium available on the market. Transdermal formulations penetrate the skin layer, enter the blood circulation, and exert their effects on deeper or more distant tissues.
  • Arnica Soothes muscles and reduces swelling, irritation, and bruising and is the perfect complement to magnesium for muscle recovery.

Most salves on the market don’t include magnesium. Magnesium is essential for athletes because it enhances exercise performance via increasing glucose availability in the blood, muscle, and brain during exercise. Athletes lose magnesium through sweat and urine. This generally leads to the need for supplementation. 

As for a nourishing, rejuvenating, and soothing result for the skin, Autumn Brand’s salve is made with cocoa butter, coconut, castor oil, and a proprietary blend of essential oils lavender, bergamot, rosewood, and teak. The refreshing aromatherapeutic benefits complement the natural terpenes for an overall enjoyable scent for both men and women.

The combination of these essential, natural ingredients means Autumn Brands Nourishing Muscle and Joint Salve provides:

  • Targeted Pain Relief 
  • Deep Muscle Relaxation 
  • Reduces Stress 
  • Restores Calm
