Though there isn’t currently enough research to make definitive scientific claims about the effects of CBD, some studies – and a ton of anecdotal evidence, indicate this non-psychoactive cannabinoid can be very effective in relieving pain, inflammation, insomnia, stress, and anxiety. The trick is figuring out the best way to get CBD into your system. While the majority of people take CBD orally, whether it’s a flavorless tincture or fruit-punch flavored gummies, recent research suggests topical products might actually give you more bang for your buck. That’s why a team of scientists, technicians, and entrepreneurs at a company called Boojum Life developed a new line of state-of-the-art CBD roll on body oils specifically designed to cross the dermal barrier and work more effectively.
With CBD products of unknown origin and quality popping up everywhere, from corner stores to gas stations, Boojum Life was founded to provide consumers with pure, high-quality, lab-tested CBD products they can actually trust. Based in Heber City, Utah, all of Boojum’s hemp is sourced locally from family farms and independent growers who use pesticide-free, sustainable growing practices. Moreover, every product they sell undergoes three rounds of testing—once before the hemp is processed, once after it’s turned into a full-spectrum CBD oil, and once after the CBD oil is turned into the final product.
According to at least one study, when it comes treating to skin, muscle, and joint issues, the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of CBD are significantly reduced when taken orally. Why? Because a biological process called “first pass metabolism” breaks down and weakens chemical compounds before they have a chance to reach systemic circulation. However, the same study says when you administer CBD transdermally—that is, when it gets absorbed into your system through your skin—you bypass first pass metabolism. That means more of the CBD actually gets into your system.
Boojum Life specializes in topical CBD body oils. They currently have three different formulas to choose from, but all of them contain a full spectrum hemp oil containing dozens of terpenes, terpenoids, and cannabinoids that interact and synergize, maximizing their effects. Each ounce of Boojum body oil contains 1000mg of CBD that has been extracted using organic 200 proof cryo-ethanol in an FDA registered, cGMP facility. And they’re all formulated without formaldehyde, parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, sulfates, or synthetic dyes.
One of the most important ingredients in Boojum Life body oils is bisabolol, a terpene found in chamomile. In addition to nourishing damaged skin, Bisabolol also increases skin permeability, which makes it easier for CBD and the other therapeutic ingredients to cross the dermal barrier. Once past the dermal barrier, these therapeutic compounds interact with your body’s endocannabinoid neurotransmission system, activating cannabinoid receptors in muscles and other soft tissue to alleviate inflammation, pain, and other body stressors. If the oils are applied near arteries or pulse points, the ingredients can even make their way into the bloodstream for dispersal throughout the body.
As we’ve already mentioned, Boojum makes three different body oil formulas: Uplift, Calm, and Relieve. Each is designed to have a specific soothing effect, though they all nourish the skin and contain the same broad spectrum hemp oil.
Uplift was developed to evoke a sense of well-being and balance. It combines Boojum’s pure full-spectrum hemp oil with a unique blend of citrus, chamomile, clove, vanilla, and other warm spices that have been used as natural remedies for centuries. These fragrances and terpenes work together to elevate mood and benefit the body. Sweet orange, tangerine, and lemongrass help relax muscles, while ginger, vanilla, and other warm spices help produce a sense of wellbeing. Meanwhile, the terpenes and CBD in the broad spectrum hemp oil have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, pain-relieving, stress-reducing, and mood-enhancing properties.
Calm was developed to combat stress and the overactive mind. It combines Boojum’s pure full-spectrum hemp oil with a relaxing, sweetly spiced blend of English lavender, nutmeg, Ceylon cinnamon, Roman chamomile, and hops. This formulation of fragrances and terpenes work together to soothe anxiety and stress. Lavender oil has been shown to help reduce skin irritation, blotchiness, and scarring. Hops, nutmeg, and chamomile all have mild sedative effects. And cinnamon is said to alleviate muscle aches and stiffness. Meanwhile, the terpenes and CBD in the broad spectrum hemp oil have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, pain-relieving, stress-reducing, and mood-enhancing properties.
Relieve was developed to combat stress and soothe the fatigued body. It combines Boojum’s pure full-spectrum hemp oil with a soothing and invigorating mixture of mint, basil, sage, camphor, and eucalyptus. Peppermint and wintergreen have long been recommended for muscle and nerve pain, while camphor helps relieve for itchy or irritated skin. And as with Uplift and Calm, the terpenes and CBD in the broad spectrum hemp oil have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, pain-relieving, stress-reducing, and mood-enhancing properties.
