I just received my order in the mail yesterday. I’m gonna try it out a few times and write about it as soon as I’ve given the product is due diligence.
For the time being, I’ve uploaded the product photos.

So I’ve been using the ‘Soothing Mint CBD Balm’ by Lazarus Naturals for about a month now. If you want to quickly know whether or not I was happy with the results…I’ve already placed a new order because I was absolutely happy with the balm as a pain relief aid.
Work has been awfully slow the last few weeks, and instead of putting more time into the magazine and website, I’ve been putting more time into Battlefield V’s ‘Firestorm’. Firestorm is Battlefield’s version of a battle royale game. You play along with a squad of three other players and battle other 4 man squads as a ring of fire closes in. There’s no flying or magic spells, there are no laser weapons or weird stuff. The game is a WWII era game that gets intense and is pretty damn addicting.
After playing a few evenings in a row, each evening for a few solid hours at a time…as you can imagine my thumbal (total science word) areas begin to experience some soreness.
A regular person would probably put down the sticks for a while and take a break. Not this trooper. The game must go on! Instead of taking some time off, I kept playing and the pain continued and worsened. PERFECT! Where many would see a negative experience, I found an opportunity to review a product and add to the website!!!
So let’s get to it. The balm smells like mint and medicine together. It reminds me of old people creams. Maybe I’m getting old but the smell doesn’t much bother me. In all honesty, the scent is actually pretty damn relaxing. Relaxing enough that after I’m done rubbing the balm on my thumbs and shoulders/neck…I smear the remainder of it under my nose because I’ve found that the scent is pretty damn relaxing.
I’ve tried the balm on many occasions and I’ve found it most useful after a shower. That’s probably because the balm can work directly into the skin instead of having to try and fight it’s way through the sweat and mustard or leftover cheese or whatever else I have lingering on the surface of my skin. So do yourself a favor and shower before usage.
After applying the balm, it’s taken as long as 15-20 minutes to feel the cooling effect of the balm. But from there…it’s all good. All effin’ good! The pain relief was definitely noticeable and there was an absolute difference in the comfort level of using my hands. Pain relief was enough that I actually felt like hand drawing with a pencil and paper.
This is the first CBD balm that I’ve ever used, so I don’t know if what I’m about to say is a universal truth or just applies to this particular product. Like cutting peppers for my fajitas, don’t rub your eyes after. It’s burns like an emmer effer! So be sure to wash your hands after you’ve applied the balm to yourself. Or if someone else has rubbed the balm on you, just remind them to wash their hands before they touch any sensitive parts.
In summary, I think the balm is worth it. I’ve already ordered and received more. Additionally, the shipping time of their product is awesome. I received it within a few days. Not an entire week, just a couple 2-3 days. AWESOME!
