Let's Roll: All About Roll-on Gels
Posted on March 09 2021
Farmer & Chemist’s roll-on gels, Chill Out and Hot Spot, are the perfect solution to a plethora of problems. Whether your legs are sore after an intense workout or the arthritis is flaring up again, these CBD-infused roll-on gels can help soothe the afflicted area and get you back on track in no time at all.
Taylor, a personal trainer and Farmer & Chemist customer, has stated that she no longer uses ibuprofen to ease muscle soreness and pain after a hard workout. Instead, she pops the cap off her trusty Chill Out and spreads it liberally over her sore muscles. After a few minutes, the soothing gel has calmed the muscles, resulting in a smooth and easy recovery.
Chill Out and Hot Spot have four primary benefits. They provide pain relief, are inherently anti-inflammatory, calm sore joints, and ensure a soothing recovery.
CBD is known for its inherent pain-relieving properties, and Hot Spot and Chill Out are a great way to attack localized pain. When you spread this CBD-infused gel on an afflicted area, it releases cannabinoids (compounds found in cannabis plants) that activate your body’s natural endocannabinoid system. This system, often abbreviated to ECS, is responsible for regulating appetite, mood, memory, and pain.
Once the roll-on gel has been absorbed into the body, the cannabinoids found in CBD bind to cell receptors in the muscle tissue, skin, and nerves. This quickens the pain-relieving process.
It’s important to note that while some pain relief medications like ibuprofen or acetaminophen simply mask the pain, CBD takes the pain away.
In addition to providing natural pain relief, Hot Spot and Chill Out are perfect for lowering inflammation.
A study published in Future Med Chem, entitled “Cannabinoids as novel anti-inflammatory drugs,” found that CBD and other cannabinoids are effective in suppressing inflammatory responses.
This is great news for people that suffer from chronic arthritis, or else the occasional inflamed muscle, as it shows that CBD provides an all-natural way to attain relief.

Chill Out is perfect for when you need to calm aching muscles and joints. Just as the name suggests, Chill Out provides a direct cooling effect while simultaneously delivering a concentrated amount of CBD.
So why does the cool temperature help? Couldn’t I get the same benefit from a topical balm or salve?
While topical balms or salves may have a more concentrated amount of CBD, the cooling properties of Chill Out really make all the difference. Cold therapy, also known as cryotherapy, works by reducing the blood flow to the afflicted area. This significantly reduces inflammation and swelling, especially around joints or tendons.
Pair cryotherapy with the calming properties of CBD and you have a product like no other. In addition to calming joints and muscles, Chill Out is also perfect for reducing unwanted muscle spasms. Overall, you can’t go wrong.
When you’re looking to soothe sore muscles and ease your recovery, Hot Spot is the way to go.
While Chill Out reduces blood flow and provides a numbing effect, Hot Spot uses heat therapy to revitalize the muscle by opening blood vessels, improving circulation and blood flow. This increases muscle flexibility, soothing any discomfort and healing damaged tissue.
Hot Spot is also great before you exercise! The warming gel improved muscle flexibility, helping you limber up and be better prepared for whatever activity you have in store.
