We’re proud to present the debut of our collaboration with Tortus Mountain, a creative collective and consumer-based review forum for the hemp industry. You’ll be seeing many more video and written testimonies from the Tortus Mountain Sages (those that embark on the journey to test these products for their lifestyle and medicinal benefits). The following is one Sage’s experience using RestoreRelief Muscle and Joint Cream from Restorative Botanicals. With expertise in areas ranging from food to topicals to pet treatments and more, the Tortus team is helping educate the world about hemp, as well as finding the best new products for your life. Be well.

I felt relief within 10 minutes of using the RestoreRelief. I have chronic neck pain from a car accident (five years ago), and I’m always looking for natural things with pain-relieving effects to rub on it. I like the way it smells and the texture is nice. The steamed distilled herbs give this topical a light floral smell. I really appreciate that the ingredients of this topical are organic and high-quality. The full-spectrum hemp oil used is CO2-extracted, providing deep-penetrating pain relief, over 24 hours.I would like it if the container clearly labeled how many milligrams of hemp extract were in the RestoreRelief and Restorative Botanicals’ Comfort Hand and Body Cream, for clarity.I’ve learned there are different effectiveness levels based off of the “total milligram” levels in skin products and deeper relieving muscle and joint creams. Topical body products with any hemp extract can have some benefits to the skin’s health. For me, I’ve learned that anything under 100 mg is a good product that will nourish my skin.  If I need something that works for my recurring pain spots (calves, lower back, neck, shoulders), then I look for creams with 400 mg and above. Having said that,  I do feel like the formula is fairly potent as there was relief from my old car crash injury in my neck and shoulders.The Restore Relief Muscle and Joint cream has calendula oil, which has good anti-microbial and antiseptic properties. And it also contains sunflower seed oil which promotes healthy skin growth.
