The marijuana plant has been used and extracted in many peculiar and glorious ways. It can be used to inhale through a dry herb vape or a joint, condensed into edibles or concentrates, or even used in hemp pain relief cream. The truth is, the marijuana plant has been proven to be helpful in many ways – even through hemp clothing – and is constantly knocking on the door of ‘non believers’. However, not all parts or extracts of the weed plant are legal. And the legality usually comes down to the inclusion of CBD vs THC. It’s often actually quite surprising to learn which are legal and which aren’t. For example, CBD flowers are illegal, but hemp pain relief cream is. Today, we’re going to be looking at why that is the case, what hemp really is, the benefits its brings, and of course, where the heck you can buy it from. It’s not always as easy as going to Boots. Or is it? As always, strap yourself in. Let’s go.
What Is Hemp?
Before we look at what hemp pain relief cream is and where you can buy it, let’s backtrack a little bit. What is this curious substance? What is hemp? What can it be used for? The important thing to note is that hemp is completely legal in the UK. If you want to know more details on marijuana legalization then check out our article: is weed legal in the UK?. But in the meantime, let’s talk about hemp.
Hemp is a variant of the cannabis sativa L plant. Each part of it can be used for varying purposes.
The stalks of the plant can be used to make hemp fiber, which is used in ropes and clothes.
The seeds can be used to create hemp protein, which is used in a variety of hemp protein shake powders. These have lots of health benefits.
Hemp oil can be made from the leaves. These can be used on skin. Similar to hemp pain relief cream.
The flowers or buds can also be used to create hemp/CBD oil. However, they can just be CBD flowers, which can be smoked and used as medicinal cannabis.
Hemp has very low levels of THC and usually very high levels of CBD. CBD and THC are the two most prominent cannabinoids within the plant. But they both have different properties. Before we go any further, let’s quickly define what those two things are.
CBD is quickly becoming one of the most popular cannabinoids on the legal market. CBD is a psychoactive property, but in a very different way from THC. It doesn’t give you the well-known high that is linked to consuming marijuana. If anything, it creates a feeling of mellow-chill. CBD is thought to have many benefits: including help with sleep deprivation, anxiety, pain and many others. CBD now finds itself in a variety of products – including hemp pain relief cream.

THC is one of the most popular cannabinoids on the…illegal market. THC is also a psychoactive property, and it is responsible for giving the well-known high feeling. This is the reason why high THC products are illegal in many countries. In the UK, above 0.2% THC is too much and deemed illegal. The usual dosage of THC in a bud of Amsterdam weed is around 10-20%. We have a long way to go in the UK before that’s allowed.
The History of Hemp
Before we speak about how hemp ended up within hemp pain relief cream. Let’s quickly look at how hemp even came to existing in the first place. Hemp was first cultivated in Asia in around 8000BC. After this the whole world began realising how great hemp was for materials and followed suit. It was used for this for many centuries until in the 1900s in America, the cannabis side of hemp was linked with the Mexican population and crime (a clear political move, based very little on fact). It was after this that weed started becoming illegal in many countries.
As time has gone on, and minds have opened up again, the link between high CBD properties like hemp and high THC properties have diminished. Meaning now people treat them differently. Hemp is now legal in the UK. It’s used in edibles (like hemp gummies), materials, oils, foods and, of course, hemp pain relief cream.

How Do I Use It?
There are many ways that hemp can be absorbed into the body. Each has slightly differing qualities. With dry bud, hemp can be inhaled using a dry herb vaporizer or in a joint. Inhaling hemp means you’re absorbing it through your lungs which is pretty instant. Alternatively, you can absorb it through edibles. This takes longer as your stomach has to break it down first.
However with hemp pain relief cream, you rub it into your skin. By rubbing hemp pain relief cream slowly, in a circular motion for 30 seconds, the hemp will be absorbed by the skin and will go into the body that way. Doing this 3-4 times a day should be enough to see good effects. After that, use it at your own leisure and depending on how you’re feeling.
