When centuries-old methodology for preventing and alleviating suffering exists, why reinvent the wheel? Zana means “Cannabis” in Sanskrit, and Legion of Bloom’s new Transdermal Roll On is unique in that it’s formulated in the Ayurvedic tradition. Composed of many ingredients with powerful therapeutic properties, the magic of this CBD-rich formula is in its synergistic effects – it’s not just one ingredient that provides relief, but rather the nuanced interactions between ingredients that promote healing.

The transdermal medicine’s base is Mahanarayan Oil, which is a classically used healing oil that’s been infused with more than 20 herbs, including Anantamul, Arjuna, Ashwagandha, Bala, Bhumyamalaki, Calamus, Clove, Camphor, Cardamom, Dashamula, Fennel, Ginger, Guduchi, Licorice, Manjistha, Musta, Mineral Salt, Neem, Punarnava, Shatavari, Turmeric and Vidanga.

The parade of healers doesn’t stop there. Zana’s proprietary blend of essential oils is carefully selected for their beneficial effects on the body. Wintergreen, lavender, ylang ylang, camphor, rosewood buddha wood and more are all great remedies for soothing muscles and an overactive nervous system. And of course, this topical is 100 percent organic. Because it’s transdermal, it’s absorbed directly into skin and can be used directly on pain points. There’s no oily residue or gross sticky feeling following application.

Perhaps due to its pure golden color, or the way I couldn’t stop taking deep inhalations where I’d  used Zana, I found this topical oil works well on multiple levels. It penetrates quickly and feels warming. Legion of Bloom prides itself on hand-selecting its cannabis phenotypes in order to really target and address body pain and inflammation. Thanks to the potency of the CBD extract used, I noticed that after a couple days of regular thrice-a-day application, it cleared up several bruises that ordinarily would linger for a week or more. Bonus points: The transdermal roll-on form is super easy to transport and comes in glass bottles that help the formula retain its potency over time.

The Wrap: Perfect for people seeking localized relief for sore muscles, aches, and pains without the psychoactivity of other delivery methods. Also great for people interested in Eastern medicine and ancient healing remedies.

Potency: Each 10-ounce roll-on contains a generous 65 mgs of CBD.

Price: About $30 each
