As we know, CBD is touted for its pain-relieving abilities and it is no joke; in our foot cream, we mix hydrating oils with high-quality CBD oil to soothe your skin and calm even the achiest of arches.
This cream can help fight inflammation in your feet that can build up over a long day, hydrate skin, and help relax those achy muscles!
How Does CBD Work For Relief?
CBD works through the skin by interacting with nearby cannabinoid receptors. This can deliver relief directly to any area that is uncomfortable.
When applied directly to an area of discomfort, CBD creams can help relax muscles making recovery from sports, relaxing after a long day much easier and more comfortable.
How to use CBD foot cream
CBD foot cream literally could not be any easier to use! If your feet are feeling worn out, just apply the cream liberally to your feet and ankles.
It is recommended to use a topical CBD product a few times a day to help control discomfort.
You can also use this foot cream daily to help keep foot discomfort at bay and to help keep your feet feeling moisturized and healthy.
** Hot tip, you can also use this cream on other areas such as your elbows and knees!
What Does CBD Foot Cream Feel Like?
Glad you asked!
Using any topical CBD product should feel like using any other moisturizer.
Some products containing menthol or mint may make your skin tingle but most products look and feel like a typical moisturizer that packs a pain-relieving punch!
Our DIY CBD foot cream feels like magic in a bottle and helps rejuvenate the most tired feet!
What to Look For in a CBD Foot Cream
Whether you choose to make your own or buy a CBD foot cream, there are some essential things to look for.
First and foremost, you want to start off with a high-quality CBD oil and carrier oil. The better quality the CBD oil, the better results you may see.
It never hurts to research the CBD oil that you plan to use, CBD products are largely unregulated in the United States, this doesn’t mean it doesn’t work, it does mean that many labels can be misleading!
Another thing to consider is the amount of CBD that is in your product. In this recipe, we use a 60ml bottle of CBD oil with 600mg of CBD; this means that there are 10 milligrams of CBD in each milliliter of oil.
We recommend starting with a low dose of CBD oil and increasing it slowly until you reach your desired results.

Another thing to consider is the quality of ingredients in your cream.
We only use natural ingredients and essential oils in our DIY recipes which means you get the best quality delivered straight to your skin!
If you are purchasing a pre-made CBD foot cream, we highly encourage you to look closely at the ingredients as well as what CBD products are in it, and if you have any questions, call the manufacturer.
