Gear of the Week: Apothecanna Extra Strength Body Creme

Colorado's marijuana laws make for unique recovery options for those who like to play hard in the mountains.

By Aspen Sojourner Staff September 12, 2018

This pain-relieving body lotion is our go-to for sore muscles and achy joints.  

What with biking, hiking, running, ski conditioning classes, dancing, yoga, and however else you like to enjoy life in a hard-charging mountain town, aches and pains are inevitable. Before you reach for your trusty bottle of "vitamin I," consider another option.

This moisturizing yet non-greasy lotion contains pain relieving, cooling, and anti-inflammatory ingredients like arnica, peppermint, and juniper. But what makes it better than any other muscle rub we've tried? It's also infused with equal amounts of CBD (cannabidiol) and cannabis sativa oils. The light, minty scent is not at all overbearing, and, based upon our anecdotal testing, the pain-relieving properties are impressive.

No, we're not doctors or scientists, but we are athletes, and everyone that's tried this cream has immediately purchased his or her own bottle.For a special treat, ask your masseuse to use it during your next massage.

Buy it at Silverpeak (and remember to bring your ID). $80 for 8oz/$30 for 2 oz
