When it comes to CBD Cream and other topicals, many CBD brands simply infuse standard skin-cream formulations with CBD and that’s that; not Medterra’s CBD + Manuka Honey Cream, however. Much more care has gone into ingredient sourcing than that, not least with its other key ingredient, Genuine New Zealand Manuka Honey.
CBD and Manuka Honey go great together due to their combined anti-inflammatory effects, and many customers have reported this cream to be highly nourishing and a great moisturiser, keeping skin hydrated throughout the day. Not only this, but people are also having success with it for muscle soreness relief due to these great properties.
In this review, we’re going to take a closer look at what makes this cream so popular, and the science behind its effectiveness.
Who is Medterra’s CBD + Manuka Cream for?
This cream is for people who are looking for a little relief from blemishing skin conditions, and also for those looking for something to help ease muscle soreness and provide a bit of respite. Users of Medterra’s CBD + Manuka Cream have reported success for a number of applications, including:
- Treating eczema
- Helping to heal scars
- Relieving dry skin
- Treating acne
- Muscle pain
This makes sense due to CBD and Manuka Honey’s natural properties, not to mention the benefits of the other botanicals included in Medterra’s formula.
Each tub of Medterra’s CBD + Manuka Honey contains 250mg of CBD in a 60g formulation. It also has a rating of 12+ UMF (Unique Manuka Factor), considered a premium-grade potency. Medterra estimate 2.5mg of CBD per serving based on there being 100 servings.
What’s Inside Medterra’s CBD + Manuka Honey?
CBD and Manuka Honey Working Together
CBD has been widely reported to have anti-inflammatory properties, making it a natural choice for creams and lotions. However, it is important to find additional ingredients that complement its attributes, and Medterra has done just that with the novel Manuka Honey.
Manuka Honey has been used for centuries to aid wound healing and address other skin issues, but until relatively recently has been considered an “alternative” treatment. However, a growing body of evidence of its benefits is changing this perspective, and its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects have been demonstrated in clinical studies. This makes it a great partner in crime to CBD and is why Medterra’s CBD + Manuka Honey Cream is a favourite among customers.
Aside from CBD isolate and Manuka Honey, there are a number of other beneficial botanicals included in the cream. These include Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbandensis) and Jojoba Oil, which are thought to help alleviate minor skin ailments such as dry skin, cuts, acne and psoriasis.
Cream Consistency and Aroma
The cream has a pleasant smell that is reminiscent of beeswax, but it’s not overpowering. The cream is also quite hard, more like wax than a lotion. I typically prefer cream like this as it means less is wasted as you rub it into a specific area.
