An active lifestyle is a healthy lifestyle but sometimes you can push your body a little too far with your muscles, tendons or ligaments paying the price. The cost? Sprains and strains, muscular pain, inflammation and bruising.

Fortunately, these injuries often respond well to CBD gel.1

Strains are caused by damage to muscle fibres or tendon such as a stretch or tear, while sprains, are caused by damage to ligaments. 2 These are the bands of connective tissue that join bones together in a joint. Typical symptoms for strains and sprains are pain, bruising, swelling. 2

ADCO CBD Pain Gel is a premium quality CBD product brought to you by Adcock Ingram that may assist with symptomatic relief of muscle pain and inflammation in the back and joints, and from minor of strains and sprains.¹
