Dixie™ THC Relief Balm
“Dixie’s luxurious salve infused with cannabis relieves stress and repairs the skin—restoring smoothness and suppleness. Massage into tense or tight muscles and relax.”
Dixie™ THC infused Relief Balm is a popular marijuana topical boasting an impressive list of benefits, from smoother skin to tension and pain relief. As a sometimes climber and avid haver of dry skin, I wanted to know if a THC balm could really soothe sore muscles, relieve aching joints and moisturize like other popular creams, balms and lotions.
When I first purchased the cannabis balm, part of me wondered if the 90 milligrams of active THC in the balm meant I would be walking around smelling like a Purple Trainwreck all day. Of course, my fears were unwarranted, which I found out as soon as I opened the childproof container. The Relief Balm offered a pleasant fragrance; like a tin of Vick’s had a lovechild with a pine needle. I never felt overwhelmed by the scent, even while applying the balm, and it faded quickly instead of hanging about like you might expect with perfume, cologne, scented lotions or Jay and Silent Bob.
The first few days I had the Dixie™ cannabis balm, I used it as much as I could. I would apply it to my hands after climbing and my shoulders the next morning. I would snag a bit of balm after doing the dishes to try and get the pruney feel out of my fingertips. I would even use a dollop around bug bites to try and reduce itching. It seemed like Dixie™ always helped. And with just a five minute activation time, I could apply it at the beginning of Freebird and feel better before the guitar solo.
I got my first real test, however, when I woke up with a sore neck. I didn’t know if I had slept on it wrong or if I strained it the previous day frantically looking for the ice cream man. I couldn’t turn my head without feeling pain. The worst part was that it hadn’t even been the real ice cream man. My phone is usually on silent, and I forgot I had changed my ringtone to the ice cream truck jingle. #WhompWhomp
I began looking for the Relief Balm, turning my whole body like a portly Batman. I gave a weak little “Huzzah!” when I found it, worried too much excitement would bring another wave of neck pain, and applied a healthy amount to my neck and surrounding areas. After the five-minute activation time had passed, my neck still hurt. But, there had been a noticeable improvement. I still might not have enjoyed looking both ways to cross the road, but at least now I could! And, as time passed, the relief continued to improve. I can’t say that the THC Balm eliminated my neck pain, but it allowed me to stay focused, productive and get through my day. Naturally, I wanted to know how the balm worked.

Ingredients like cocoa butter and beeswax can help prevent dry skin and may soothe burns, rashes and other irritations. Rosemary, lavender and pine oils add to the pleasing fragrance while contributing to the balm’s effectiveness in relieving tension and pain in muscles and joints. There is, of course, active THC in the Dixie™ Relief Balm. But as with most marijuana topicals, the THC cannot enter the bloodstream, meaning you can receive the pain and stress-relieving benefits without the psychoactive effects.
I’m not a heavy user of balms or lotions, but Dixie™ Relief Balm has made its way out of the medicine cabinet and onto my desk so it’s easier to get to.
Recommendations: Dixie™ Relief Balm is great for soreness, dry skin and relieving muscle tension. You can use it every day or keep a container in your gym bag to apply to aching joints and muscles after a hard workout.
Not Good For: Relieving relationship tension. Relief pitching. Hurricane relief.
