What is CBD Body Butter and How Can It Help You?

CBD Body Butter from Silverdome Gardens

In this article we’ll look at the benefits of CBD body butter and talk about how it can be used to relieve troublesome symptoms (including pain) and do so in a natural way. 

As a Licensed Massage Therapist, the number one thing people complain about to me is pain. You would think that it would be from working hard, not stretching or drinking enough water (which is part of it), but most people complain from just waking up and being in pain from just sleeping the wrong way. Let alone, being active and having fun. 

My mom used to tell me, “Well Samantha, you play, you pay!” and I would bounce right back the next day. 

Fast forward to 30 years later, and if I don’t sleep on my back, everything hurts!

CBD Body Butter And Pain Relief

Keeping this in mind and knowing that most clientele also want pain relief “now”, I had to come up with a product that would help a lot of people’s pain “right now”. 

I also was thinking, if you’re going to make a product people can put all over their body, then why not make it smooth, moisturizing, and deeply conditioning with not only CBD, but other great ingredients as well. 

Then it hit me, a CBD body butter would be able to do all of those things with just the right ingredients. 

We combined grapeseed oil, shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax, arnica oil, and just a hint of orange essential oil as well as hemp derived CBD to create our amazing Silverdome Gardens CBD Body Butter.

Why The Ingredients In CBD Body Butter Matter

What do each of these ingredients do to help you? 

Let’s dive in! 

Grapeseed oil is oil that is pressed from the seeds of grapes which is a by-product of the oil used for making wines. It is known for its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties, as well as high amounts of vitamin E, making it a great treatment for the skin. 

Since grapeseed oil makes the skin softer, and absorbs nicely, it is known for helping with acne treatments, lightening the skin and tightening your pores!

The next item on our list of ingredients is Shea Butter

Shea Butter is a fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. It is ivory in color when raw and commonly dyed yellow with borututu root or palm oil. 

According to Bulk Apothecary, shea butter has many benefits including, but not limited to: containing vitamins A, E, and F, highly moisturizing, skin softening, calms irritated skin, natural SPF and sun burn relief, anti inflammatory properties that eases aches and pains, soothes and heals burns, relieves joint pain, natural hair conditioner, restores elasticity, fades scars, stretch marks, and dark spots, soothes eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, burns, and wounds, protects skin from free radicals, eliminates shaving bumps and can even help with anti-aging! 

Holy cow, all of that in just one ingredient, of course we had to add it to our CBD Body Butter!

Next up we have Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is made by pressing fresh coconut meat or dried coconut meat from mature coconuts. The processing of it does not involve high temperatures or chemicals, which is great! 

While reading through the benefits and uses of coconut oil, I decided it was a must to add to our CBD body butter. 

Not only does it moisturize dry skin, it also reduces inflammation, can promote wound healing and contains great antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. 

Are you seeing a trend here?! 

All of the ingredients we are adding are all supposed to support your skin and help promote healing, which means less pain. These first three ingredients are also great for skin absorption, and I knew we were on the right track.

How It All Came Together

I started to stir all of these wonderful skin care ingredients together and discovered we needed a binding agent. 

Something natural, scent free, and colorless. I began doing research and landed on beeswax. Beeswax is naturally occurring wax that is produced in the hives by the honeybees. 

They have glands under their abdomen that secretes the wax and then it is used to build the honeycomb. Beeswax is extracted from the nest when the beekeepers extract the honey. 

They cut off the wax caps from each honeycomb cell, with an uncapping knife or machine. 

Besides just being a binding agent, Beeswax has some great benefits for the skin. It can brighten your complexion, it has anti-inflammatory (there’s that word again) and antibacterial properties, it can help fade scars and is packed with vitamin A to help fight against the free radicals that cause signs of early aging and lastly it’s a natural humectant. 

What the heck does that mean?! 

That means it’s filled with protective wax that helps to draw moisture to your skin and keep it there.

How cool! So all of the other ingredients will soften and moisturize and the beeswax can help to keep it all in. This CBD Body Butter was getting better and better with each ingredient, but I couldn’t just stop there. Knowledge is power, right?

Adding Oils Made Things Even Better

While attending massage school I learned about a lot of different massage oils, essential oils, as well as oils that help for skin, muscle and joint care. 

One that always stuck out to me and I continue to use is Arnica Oil

Arnica oil comes from the perennial Arnica montana, a yellow-orangish flower that grows in the mountains of Europe and Siberia. 

It is sometimes called the mountain daisy because of its appearance. Creams and ointments are usually made from it, or you can use pure arnica oil, which is what we’ve added to our CBD Body Butter. 

A few uses of arnica oil are to decrease muscle soreness and aches, decrease bruising as well as to decrease joint pain, swelling, and inflammation. 

Once again, what do all of these properties lead to? Our end goal, LESS PAIN.

Therapy In How It Smells

After I had the perfect ingredients for a skin care product that focuses on pain relief, among lots of other benefits, I wanted it to also bring people joy when they thought about the smell of putting it on after a fresh shower, and make them smile. 

Orange essential oil, like arnica, is made using a cold-pressed method which uses pressure, opposed to chemicals, to squeeze the oils from the rind. Sometimes, the leaves and flowers from the orange plant can be used as well. According to, orange oil has many uses. A few of the common ways that orange oil is used is to:

  • Lift your mood or reduce stress
  • Treat skin conditions such as acne
  • Reduce pain and inflammation (!)

How perfect is that? An oil that smells good, can lift your mood, and help to reduce pain and inflammation, I thought that was just the scent we needed. 

*A few notes about orange oil and safety. Orange oil has a risk of phototoxicity. Although it is low, you should still be aware to not use this product and then go sit in the sun. Phototoxicity means they can cause a painful skin reaction if you use them and go out in the sun. 

There is so little in our CBD Body Butter, that I don’t ever see it being a problem, but I would exercise caution knowing about its phototoxic properties.

The Star of The Show: Hemp Derived CBD

Lastly, you can’t have CBD Body Butter without its main ingredient, hemp derived CBD, farmed right here at our farm in the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

 You’re probably wondering, what is CBD and how can it help being in body butter for me? 

Well friends, CBD is short for Cannabidiol, a molecule that makes up a hemp plant. Yes, there is also CBD in Hemp’s cousin plant, Cannabis, but Cannabis is typically high in THC with little to none in the CBD department. 

Hemp is just the opposite, FULL of CBD and little to no THC. All of our products are THC FREE. CBD hemp flowers are non-psychoactive, which means it will not get its user high. 

Today, CBD is considered one of the most studied cannabinoids of the hemp plant, primarily because it is believed to have a range of therapeutic properties. The human (and animal bodies) have naturally occurring neurotransmitters to take in cannabidiol, which are a group of fatty compounds found in hemp but also produced by other plants and the human body. 

Researchers found a few benefits that CBD has are: it can significantly reduce intense pain, itchy sensations, and cold

Other research also suggests that topical CBD may be useful for treating joint and muscle pain associated with other conditions, such as migraine. Topical CBD may also benefit certain skin disorders. Since every person reacts differently, their results may vary.

Final Thoughts on CBD Body Butter Benefits

Here at Silverdome Gardens we have had amazing feedback on our body butter and continue to use it daily ourselves.

Personally, I apply the CBD Body Butter after I get out of the shower to prevent dry skin, and on my body throughout the day, to help with pain and inflammation, particularly in my hands, neck, and feet from working.

The pain relief starts about 10-15 minutes after application and it’s so wonderful to feel the difference. Your life really begins when the pain stops and that’s why we made this company. To help you and your animals have another alternative for your wellbeing.

Everything You Need To Know About CBD Treats for Pets

Everything You Need To Know About CBD Treats for Pets

First of all, you may be wondering, what is CBD and what does it do for my pet? (looking at CBD Treats for Pets) Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is the second most active ingredient in hemp and has been shown to have various health benefits. It can be derived in relatively large quantities from hemp, and be used as a medical treatment.

While being a part of hemp, CBD also comes from hemp’s cousin plant, marijuana. However, unlike THC, which can get you “high”, CBD is a component (one of hundreds) that does not get you “high”!

A report done by the World Health Organization states, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

All About CBD & Pets

Alright, so how does that relate to your four legged friends? Well, just like humans, dogs and cats also have an endocannabinoid system that allows them to uptake the CBD and benefit from it as well!

The body’s endocannabinoids act as master regulators that signal other systems when to speed up or slow down, working to stabilize the body and return it to homeostasis.

Is CBD Safe For Pets?

A frequently asked question is “I know that marijuana can make my dog sick, or possibly even die, is CBD harmful?

While THC, CBD’s cousin, is toxic to pets, CBD is pretty harmless. Side effects that have been documented in research are diarrhea, and after several weeks, some changes in liver enzyme values.

The main concern with CBD and pets is that it inhibits a chemical in the body called cytochrome P450 that is responsible for metabolizing most medications. If a medication’s efficacy depends on its metabolized product, CBD could render it less effective. If a medication’s safety depends on it being cleared from the body within a certain time frame, CBD could cause it to build up to toxic levels.

Never give your pet CBD without your veterinarian’s knowledge, especially if they are on other medications.

That brings us to the next question, does CBD work and what can it provide for my pet?

Does CBD Work For Pets?

Although there is little research done on CBD and pets, it has been shown that they can benefit from the plant in various ways, including anti-nausea, anti-anxiety, shiny coat, improved appetite, joint health, and arthritis.

An article out of Forbes done by Baylor College of Medicine who teamed up with CBD brand Medterra to perform a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study ran a course of 4 weeks and included 20 large dogs who had been diagnosed with osteoarthritis.

Each dog was randomly assigned to receive either a placebo or 1 of 3 different CBD product options. Each dog was carefully evaluated by veterinarians and their owners regarding the dog’s mobility and pain both before and after the 4 week regimen of CBD.

The results showed no improvement in the dogs who received the placebo as well as the group of dogs who received a very mild dose of CBD.

By the end of the 4 week test the dogs who received higher doses of CBD all saw significant improvement to their joint mobility as well as their overall quality of life.

Outlook Is Positive For CBD Research

Over the next few years we believe there will be many more significant studies with amazing results regarding CBD products and their ability to vastly improve the quality of life for many types of pets / animals alike.

Dogs of any size and breed can benefit significantly from using CBD products. If you consider getting a CBD product for your pet but have some questions and concerns in mind, here are some details that could help give you more of an educated decision about these new and wonderful products.

How Does CBD Work in Pets?

Before you decide on buying CBD for your dog, there are several things you should know about how it works.

Pet owners have to give it to the animal orally to help them digest it easily. It must be in an oil or edible form to be absorbed into the bloodstream.

The product contains a naturally occurring, beneficial compound called cannabidiol. Based on studies, CBD is essential in the management of neuropathic pain, inflammation, anxiety, seizure disorders, and opioid dependence. However, pet owners were already using marijuana to treat their dogs and cats even before hemp derived CBD.

How to Give CBD to Dogs

Administering CBD to dogs is very simple and can be done almost anywhere and anytime! Here are some basic steps on how to give CBD to your dogs and ensure the best results.

Step 1: Check the amount of CBD you are going to use. You can refer to the product’s label for the recommended amount. In some cases, you have to calculate the pet’s weight to get the exact amount to give.The basic dosing rule for cats and dogs: 1–5 mg CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight. It is always best to start with the lowest dose and see how your dog reacts over the next few hours.

Step 2: Mix the CBD pet tincture CBD oil with food, water, treats or directly into your companion’s mouth. It could be in any form of edible food, whether wet or dry as well. It is up to the pets parent to decide what product best fits their needs and either use CBD infused treats or
CBD infused oil tinctures.

Step 3: Now it is time to let them try it out! Once the CBD product has been ingested you will want to monitor your pet for the next few hours. If the first lowest test dose did not seem to help your pet, it is now safe to go ahead and bump up the dose a bit. If you still see no effects, wait until the next day and up the dose once more. Monitor your friend and repeat this process until you have found the right dose for your animal.

Some of the Benefits of CBD Treats for Dogs

CBD has many benefits for dogs. These include:

Relieving Anxiety

When you see your dog behaving unusually, some symptoms you may be noticing could include aggression, urinating or defecating in the house, drooling, panting, destructive behavior, depression, excessive barking and pacing more than normal.

These are all signs of anxiety in your pet. CBD is used to relieve anxiety in dogs. It is a great option to ease the dog without using the conventional medicines often prescribed to dogs.

Treating Seizures

Did you know that some breeds of dogs are prone to epilepsy? CBD can effectively help in the treatment of such seizures.

An article at reviewed a study and the results showed a significant reduction in seizure frequency in the dogs that received doses of CBD in comparison to the placebo group. While the CBD group showed a greater range of response to the treatment, the proportion of dogs showing any response was similar in both groups. No adverse behavioral effects were reported by owners.

If your dog is having seizures CBD can be a great option to give a try due to very minimal side effects compared to some commercialized prescriptions.

Soothing Pain

According to the American Kennel Club reports A Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine study (source) found dogs given CBD at a rate of 4.4 mg per pound twice daily for a month showed significant improvement in pain relief and quality of life.

CBD has shown to reduce itchiness and irritated skin as well.

As for cancer, Cannabinoids are reported to induce cancer-cell death and prevent metastasis.

In a Cornell University study of CBD, dogs, and cancer, researchers found CBD along with a standard chemotherapy drug reduced cancer-cell proliferation in vitro more than the chemotherapy drug alone Anecdotal reports from veterinarians have claimed CBD shrunk cancer cells or put dogs into remission.

It has also been known for helping with joint and muscle pains as well.

Helping with Digestive Issues

There are times when you might notice some changes in your dog’s behavior.

These could show that your dog has something wrong with its digestive system, such as bloating.

CBD could help your dog with digestion issues too.

Some reports have shown significant decrease in pain and inflammation in the intestines. CBD can also help to soothe and relax the dog which will lower their anxiety levels that could be causing them to have stress diarrhea.

CBD also is known to be a muscle relaxant and will help with digestion.


There are so many reasons to use CBD treats for your dogs. Aside from its medicinal benefits, it is a safe and natural way to relieve your pet’s symptoms.
