Are you looking for ways to get pain relief from your throbbing joint and muscle pain? Do you wish there was a way to get rid of the skin inflammation that you have? These are just some of the uses for CBD cream when you apply it topically!
Doing so will help you receive these benefits without ingesting CBD. It won’t even enter the bloodstream, so you can receive the benefits without being concerned about ingesting it in any way.
See below for an in-depth guide on CBD cream including the best uses for it, how to use it properly, and other information as well!
The Best Uses for CBD Cream
When people hear the term “CBD”, they automatically assume that the product is being used for stress relief. That isn’t always the case.
As far as CBD cream is concerned, the primary benefits are connected to inflammation reduction and pain relief. As mentioned earlier, it won’t enter the bloodstream, so it’s a non-invasive treatment for those that don’t want to take over-the-counter pills that you need to ingest.
See below for a list of the best uses for CBD cream. As you’re reading through the benefits and best uses, you can view these CBD products!
1. Pain Relief
Say no more, right? There are many people out there looking to get their hands on a pain relief product that doesn’t involve ingesting a pill or inhaling a product of some kind.
If that’s you, then CBD cream can be the answer to your prayers! Studies have shown that there is a connection between CBD cream and joint pain relief, primarily involving arthritis and chronic pain.
Since it’s a topical product (applied directly to the skin), you can take it as often as you’d like. There aren’t any daily restrictions or limitations that you have to follow. Thus, you can get the pain relief you need whenever it flares up.
2. Reduces Skin Inflammation
Perhaps you’re tired of dealing with psoriasis flare-ups. Maybe you have a skin type that results in frequent dry rashes or irritated skin. If so, then CBD cream might be the solution.
Many studies have shown that topical creams with cannabis ingredients (such as CBD) cream may have a connection to treating common skin conditions. This includes aforementioned psoriasis, skin rashes, dermatitis, itchy skin, and so on.
You don’t have to go through your daily activities with visible, swollen red areas on your skin. Try investing in and applying a topical CBD cream to give your skin the relief it needs. It can boost your self-confidence and comfort!
3. Hydrates the Skin
Those of you with naturally dry or oily skin know how important it is to moisturize your skin daily. However, certain store-bought “moisturizing” lotions contain ingredients that do more harm to your skin than they do good.
Many experts are saying that CBD might play a role in hydrating the skin cells whenever it’s applied topically. So not only can it help treat inflamed skin, it can help you get the bright and shiny skin of your dreams!
CBD cream manufacturers are plentiful, these days. They make all different kinds of CBD cream products with many different fragrances for you to try. It can help you get your confidence back and give you a long-term solution to your dry skin issue.
How to Use CBD Cream Effectively
So how can you make sure to get the best results with CBD cream? It’s not just a reactive solution to dry skin, but a proactive one as well. How can you use CBD cream effectively to prevent joint pain or inflamed skin from the get-go? See here for more info.
How Should I Apply CBD Cream?
First, you should apply it to the most common areas for dry skin. This includes your shoulders, neck, feet, ankles, elbows, knees, and nose.
Of course, each person is different. Some of you might have other spots that tend to become dry and irritated. Be sure to apply CBD cream directly to those pesky spots as well.
We recommend that you use no more than a small plop of cream for each area, the typical amount you would get for any other type of lotion. Place it directly on the area you’d like to apply it to, then rub it in.
When Should I Apply CBD Cream?
That answer depends on what you’re using it for. If you’re wanting to use it for joint pain relief, we recommend applying it immediately after strenuous activity, such as lifting, running, or any labor-intensive task (your job included).
Of course, if you start to feel a throbbing sensation, then you can always apply the CBD cream right then and there for a little more relief.
For those of you wanting to use it primarily as preventative skincare, we recommend applying it right after you shower. When you use shower soap, the natural oils of your skin are washed off. Applying CBD cream will help moisturize the skin and prevent the dry areas from flaring up.
Unlock These Uses for CBD Cream in Your Life
Now that you have seen all of the different uses for CBD cream and how to apply it correctly, all that’s left is to invest in it for yourself!
Make sure to consider what you’ll be using it for. In no time, you’ll be adding it to your regular daily routine!

What You Need To Know About Traveling Yearly In An RV
Traveling in an RV can be something that provides a spice of life on a daily basis. The ability to head to a different city each week can allow you to add the variety you want in your life. The beauty of eating tacos in Texas and then BBQ in Kansas City in a matter of days can become a reality. RV life is not for everyone but most people can stick it out for a few months. Taking an annual trip can be something that you look forward to each year. Getting your traveling in while being able to work in a remote setting truly allows you to be a digital nomad. The following are things to consider and think about when traveling annually in an RV.
Storage Of Your RV
Storing your RV during the year can be done in a number of ways. Metal buildings for RVs are an option that you can invest in that can protect your RV. You don’t want to keep your RV in a storage yard as it could be damaged. The security at the yard could be subpar leading to your RV being burglarized without even realizing it. Take the time to consider the storage of your RV and whether renting it out is an option when you are not using it.
Renting Out Your Home During this Time
Funding your trip is not going to be as difficult if renting out your home during the months that you are gone. Renting out your home can be something you do while traveling to provide income when traveling. You want to make sure that you find renters that are trustworthy. If the renters want to do this annually, this would be the most convenient route to take. People that live in Florida might have seasonal renters on a yearly basis.
Additions For Your RV If You Work Remotely
Wi-fi on your RV is going to be so important and can be tax-deductible for those working remotely. You might be able to deduct a number of expenses incurred from the RV as the space would be considered your office as well as home. Working remotely while traveling in an RV is something that some dream about. Being able to be nomadic while making a steady income provides a sense of security to those traveling.
Exploring A Number Of Parts Of The Country
Exploring the country can be so rewarding as the US has so many different landscapes and cultures. You should set a number of locations that you plan to hit if time permits. You might find that one location is one that you’d like to stay at for a while. You should set locations by priority and cut the locations out you have less of a desire to see if you run out of time.
Traveling each year in an RV is something you won’t regret years down the road. You might even find that you want to take your RV life to the next level by doing it on a full-time basis.
Guide to Eating in Austin
I’ve been living in Austin for two months now, and in that time, I’ve consumed a lot of food. After all, Austin is home to an incredible food scene — from BBQ joints to food trucks to healthy, organic outlets to (of course) Mexican restaurants. As more and more people move to Austin (close to […]
I’ve been living in Austin for two months now, and in that time, I’ve consumed a lot of food. After all, Austin is home to an incredible food scene — from BBQ joints to food trucks to healthy, organic outlets to (of course) Mexican restaurants. As more and more people move to Austin (close to 160 a day at last count) and the city balloons with a more diverse population, Austin has expanded its dining fare to include more varied and higher-quality food.
Part of the reason Austin’s food tastes so delicious is because of the locally-sourced ingredients. As the birthplace of Whole Foods, Austin has always embraced organic food, and it was one of the frontrunners in the farm-to-table movement.
Moreover, to meet the needs of the expanding population, nearly 200 new food trucks and restaurants open up each year! With so many eateries opening all the time, you’re going to get hugely increased variety, selection, and quality.
While I still have much more exploring to do and food to eat, I want to share some of my favorite places to eat in the city for your next visit:
If there is anything I dislike about Austin, it would be the lack of good Asian cuisine, as it is my favorite in the world. When it comes to Asian food, it has a lot of those fusion joints that serve Chinese, Thai, sushi, and Korean all at once. Most are simply acceptable; they won’t blow you away. However, there are a few restaurants worth eating at:
- Bar Chi (206 Colorado St., (512) 382-5557, www.barchiaustin.com) – Decent sushi but an unbelievably affordable happy hour (5-7pm each day). My friends and I come here because it satisfies the sushi craving on the cheap!
- East Side King (1618 1/2 E. 6th S., (512) 407-8166, www.eskaustin.com) – Located in The Liberty Bar (also a kick-ass bar), this is best Asian-Thai fusion food truck in the city! Be sure to get the pork buns, tori meshi, or the chicken buns.
- Lulu B’s (3632 S. Congress Ave., (512) 921-4828, www.facebook.com/LuLuBsAustin) – I found this place thanks to Jodi from Legal Nomads. I’m not the Vietnamese food expert she is, but this place was delectable. I’ve only had the beef pho, but it was a flavorful broth.
- Piranha (207 San Jacinto Blvd. #202, (512) 473-8775, www.piranhakillersushi.com/piranha-locations/austin) – My all-around favorite sushi joint. The sushi here gives you the most value for your money, and it’s always fresh and of high quality. I particularly love their yellowtail.
- Thai-Khun (1816 E. 6th St., (512) 407-8166, eskaustin.com/v2/thaikun) – As a Thai food snob (ever since I lived in Thailand), I’m always disappointed at Thai restaurants because I never think the food is as breathtaking as in Thailand. This place in Austin is the closest to true Thai food that I’ve found so far.
- Uchi (801 S. Lamar, (512) 916-4808, uchiaustin.com) – The fanciest high-end sushi restaurant in the city. They also have a sister restaurant called Uchiko. Both live up to their reputations and are good date places. Reservations recommended!
- Wu Cho (500 W. 5th St. #168, (512) 476-2469, wuchowaustin.com) – This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in the city. They serve a very popular dim sum brunch on Sundays. Be sure to come early as it gets packed during dinnertime and Sunday brunch, and the wait for a table can be up to an hour.
If there is one thing Austin does well, it’s “Americana” food. I define that as a fusion of multiple cuisines: burgers, fries, steaks, seafood, and the like.
- Launderette (2115 Holly St., (512) 382-1599, launderetteaustin.com) – Located in an old laundry store, this restaurant is one of the hottest spots in town and serves an amazing menu of Americana and seafood, as well as a decent selection of wine. Some of my favorite dishes include crab toast, burrata, okra, brussels sprouts, and grilled octopus. If you’re coming for dinner, come early, as it fills up fast.
- Truluck (400 Colorado St., (512) 482-9000, trulucks.com) – This is my favorite steak restaurant because it’s one of the few places where you can also get fresh seafood (crab, oysters, lobster). It’s not cheap, but if you want a upscale steak house, try this.
- Péché (208 W. 4th St., (512) 494-4011, www.pecheaustin.com) – A New Orleans–inspired restaurant serving Bayou food, and it has a very friendly staff, tasty cocktails, and an extensive whiskey list.
Austin is world-famous for its BBQ, and you can’t walk down the street without running into a restaurant that serves it. The title for Austin’s best BBQ is hotly contested among fans, and I don’t claim to know who’s right — to me, BBQ is either good or really damn good. But these are among my favorites:
- Franklin Barbecue (900 E. 11th St., (512) 653-1187, franklinbarbecue.com) – This is considered the top of the top of the top BBQ joints in the country. Even the president ate here! It’s open from 11am until they run out of food (usually in a few hours). Lines start at 8am, so it’s best to go midweek in summer when most people don’t want to wait in that line and you don’t need to line up until 9 or 10am.
- La Barbecue (1906 E. Cesar Chavez St., (512) 605-9696, www.labarbecue.com) – BBQ is a matter of perspective. A lot of people say Franklin’s is the best, but La Barbecue is #1 to me. It opens at 11am. Expect two-hour waits during lunchtime, so get here early.
- Iron Works BBQ (100 Red River St., (512) 478-4855, ironworksbbq.com) – Located downtown, this restaurant serves above-average BBQ with large portions and hearty helpings of side dishes. I come here for the lunch brisket plate.
- Micklethwait Craft Meats (1309 Rosewood Ave., (512) 791-5961, craftmeatsaustin.com) – An awesome food truck on the east side of the city. I’m in love with its ribs, brisket, and BBQ sauce. While it’s very popular, the line here isn’t as long as the other places listed.
Tacos are serious business in this city. I have yet to fully experience much of the wonder that Austin has to offer on this front, but I do like a few of the big names:
- Veracruz (1704 E. Cesar Chavez St., (512) 981-1760, veracruztacos.com) – The best food truck in town (conveniently located across the street from my hostel). It makes wonderful breakfast tacos, and the migas was voted #1 in the country. There is never really a line, but service is slow.
- Torchy’s (multiple locations, torchystacos.com/in/austin) – World famous (and another spot where the president ate), this taco place has multiple locations in the city. It lives up to all the hype! I’m a big fan of the fried avocado and trailer park tacos. Every location is always packed, so expect a wait, especially on the weekends. The food here is pretty spicy, too.
- Taco Deli (multiple locations, www.tacodeli.com) – Another delicious eatery serving mouth watering breakfast tacos.
Mexican & Tex-Mex
Like tacos, there are a lot of world-class Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants in Austin! There are plenty of people who can dissect their finer points — I am not one of those people, however. But these establishments will never steer you wrong:
- Vivo (6406 N. Interstate Highway 35, (512) 407-8302, vivoaustin.com) – Solid Mexican with huge portions, spicy dishes, and friendly staff.
- Benji’s (716 W. 6th St., (512) 476-8226, benjiscantina.com) – Amazing margaritas, huge portions, and an outdoor patio area. Their incredible guacamole is made tableside.
- Tamale House East (1707 E. 6th St., (512) 495-9504, www.facebook.com/tamalehouse.east) – Located in East Austin, this hole-in-the-wall is only open for breakfast or lunch. It’s famous for its tacos, but like the name suggests, get the tamales!
There isn’t a lot of good Indian food in town, mostly because there just isn’t a lot of good Asian food in general. I’m not an Indian food expert, but these two are my favorites:
- The Clay Pit (1601 Guadalupe St., (512) 322-5131, claypit.com) – I order from this spot through UberEats all the time since it often has fast delivery. I love the samosas and jasmine rice, and their naan is just perfect!
- Masala Dhaba (75 Rainey St., (512) 665-6513) – A higher-end, sit-down restaurant with a flavorful chicken tikka masala!
Some other of my favorite must-eats:
- P. Terry’s (multiple locations, pterrys.com) – This is the best burger bar in the city. It’s delicious and cheap (you can get a burger, fries, and a drink for $6 USD), with filling portions. This is one of my all-time favorite spots in the city, and since it’s close to my house, I tend to eat here too often!
- The Onion (408 Brazos St., (512) 476-6466, onionbaby.com) – Coming from NYC, I’m spoiled for pizza — you can buy tasty dollar slices anywhere you go there. That’s not the case in Austin: slices are around $4 USD and not as good, but if there is one pizza place I do like, it’s this one.
- Gus’s Fried Chicken (117 San Jacinto, (512) 474-4877, gusfriedchicken.com/austin-texas-location) – The sister restaurant to the famous location in Memphis, this place has juicy, moist chicken with battered skin that bursts with flavor in your mouth. It’s freaking amazing! They also serve mouthwatering fried green tomatoes and pickles.
- Leaf (115 W. 6th St., (512) 474-5323, leafsalad.com) – This new lunchtime salad place is incredible (also the line is long). Its gigantic salad bar has anything and everything you could ever want to put in a salad. It’s one of my favorite places for a healthy meal in Austin.
- True Kitchen (222 West Ave. #HR100, (512) 777-2430, truefoodkitchen.com) – This new restaurant is incredibly popular with people after work. All its food is natural and organic. You’ll find healthy wraps, salad bowls, sandwiches, and fresh and flavorful seafood, as well as an incredible selection of wine and cocktails.
Austin’s growing food scene means that there are still plenty of places I haven’t eaten at yet — and a few locations I probably left out, as a result — but during your visit to Austin, you’ll find yourself with more than enough choices by using this list as your guide!
America Travel News: Can I Fly To The USA Right Now?
On 16 March, the Trump Administration announced a travel ban to the US. This mandate affects travelers originating from a list of countries currently prohibited from entering the United States. Most Brits, who go on trips to the US, do so for holidays. But can they still travel to the US right now?
Brits Entering America
Unfortunately, Brits who were recently in the UK, Schengen region, Ireland, Brazil, Iran, or China during the last 14 days cannot enter the US. Exceptions to this ruling are the following:
- US citizens and green card holders (permanent residents);
- Brits who are married to a US citizen or a green card holder;
- Close family members of US citizens and green card holders; and
- Selected visa holiday holders.
If you are not among these groups listed above, you are currently not eligible to enter the United States.
Similarly, the United Kingdom added the US to its red list. This means that effective on 3 July, people who originate from the US are also not allowed to enter the UK during this time. There is no current reciprocal travel corridor agreement between both countries.
Because of the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in the United States, it is equally unlikely that travel restrictions to the UK for Americans will be lifted soon.
Increasing COVID-19 Infection in the US
Related to this junction, the US recently eased lockdown protocols in various popular vacation spots, including Florida and New York. However, in several locations like Las Vegas and California, travel restrictions are being imposed to halt the growing number of infections further.
As of writing, the United States has the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the world. Its record has already reached 6,135,598, while the current international COVID-19 total is now 25,140,903—both alarming numbers that heavily impact worldwide public health and economic well-being.
When Will This Ban Be Lifted?
There is no definite date scheduled for the lifting of the said travel ban. The ban will continue to be in effect until authorities determine that traveling between the UK and the US is already safe.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of America’s leading public health officials, asserts that present travel restrictions might only be eased when a veritable vaccine is discovered and developed. During a Telegraph interview, Fauci mentions that the ban may take “months than weeks” before it gets lifted. He adds, “I don’t think there’s going to be an immediate pullback for those kinds of restrictions.”
“The US from a very early stage banned flights from the UK and Europe, so there isn’t a reciprocal relationship in place there in any case,” says Transport Secretary Grant Shapps in a recent BBC Radio 4 interview.
Even US Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin supposes that the said travel ban might last until 2021—a presumption that may be further delayed given the current infection trends within the US.
For those who are given the green light to enter the US, however, there are several flights between the UK and the US every day. Several airlines like American Airlines, United, and British Airways fly from London to Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas, Chicago, Boston, Washington, DC, and New York daily.
For canceled flights, however, passengers are eligible for refunds or travel vouchers. You must contact your specific airline for details on how to do so.
