You've found Canada's original cannabis topical. Bud Rub is a pioneering product in many ways. Bud Rub was the topical cannabis product as far back as the 1990s and has steadily grown a loyal following. At that time few had heard of using cannabis topically or the endocannabinoid system that our ingredients interact with.
BC Bud Rub is a salve with hemp seed oil, almond oil, and beeswax as a base. Hemp, Rosemary, and Bergamot* essential oils are added to create the product's unique fragrance and healing properties. Within 5 to 10 minutes the product is usually fully absorbed. This will vary depending on the particular part of the body it is being applied to as well as whether your skin is dry or moist. Try it after a shower and it will absorb more rapidly and thoroughly.
Some topical pain relievers out there provide relief, but irritate sensitive skin, leaving a powerful burning sensation. Bud Rub does its work without heating the skin, making it safe to put near, or on, sensitive skin.
This cannabis product is THC free and won't get you into any trouble! Love to use this, but you're wondering how it will affect drug testing done by your employer. Don't worry, this product won't spoil tests because it works like cannabis products with THC, but without the same chemical fingerprint. Planning a trip? Yes, you can can take this product on the plane and across borders.
BC Bud Rub is the culmination of many years of work, and some mere happenstance. The product began life as a treatment for cold sores and simply became discovered as a source of soothing relief for arthritis sufferers when a few people began using it for this reason and spread the word. At that time the mechanism for this relief was only partially understood. Research done several years after this discovery revealed the terpene ß-caryophyllene was acting through the endocannabinoid system to provide relief.
BC Bud Rub comes in amber coloured glass ointment jars in three sizes; 15 mL, 50 mL, and 100 mL. You can find it at one of the many retailers listed on the Where's the Rub page and on Amazon in Canada and US.
*The fragrance variations have slightly different essential oil profiles.
