Meet Recovery Roll-On: Our New and Improved CBD Gel Stick

Moving our bodies in a way that feels good to us is crucial for our health and wellness, and we’ve been told time and time again how important a role exercise plays in our longevity. But although there’s nothing quite like the feeling you get after achieving a new personal best, crushing that morning run, or simply moving in a way that produces those feel-good endorphins, you’re probably all too familiar with the soreness that sets in after getting in some exercise. While there are steps you can take to alleviate this post-workout discomfort, such as stretching and staying hydrated, our Recovery Roll-On has been a crucial tool that our members have added to their recovery repertoire time and time again…and now it’s back with a whole new formula to keep you up and moving.


Introducing our new and improved Recovery Roll-On, a CBD gel stick formulated to provide your body with fast relief so you can get back out there doing what you do best.


What’s new with Recovery Roll-On?


Recovery Roll-On has long been a staple for our members who love to move, but we knew we could do better in offering the relief and recovery that our bodies need and deserve. That’s why EQ is introducing a brand new formula for Recovery Roll-On, which now boasts 2x the menthol and contains 33% more CBD than our old Roll-On formulation – that amounts to 7% menthol and 1000mg of full-spectrum CBD! We’ve also included a plethora of active botanical ingredients such as elderberry and aspen bark extract, and have packed this product with essential oils that offer unique benefits along with a new, fresh scent. 

Recovery Roll-On still boasts a non-greasy, fast-drying formula that can be rolled directly onto the skin for a quick, mess-free application – because the last thing you need in life is to be slowed down. 


How does Topical CBD work?


When applied topically, CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the skin, promoting relief from the outside in. Topical CBD is known for its soothing and relieving properties, making it the perfect ally for athletes. Since our new formula includes more full-spectrum CBD than ever before, you’re sure to get back on your feet faster than ever. 


Key Ingredients Breakdown


Each ingredient in the new Recovery Roll-On formulation provides its own list of benefits, and together they make an unstoppable team! Let’s dive in to each of these active ingredients and explore how they work to provide you with fast, targeted relief: 


Menthol (7%)

We’re all familiar with the cooling sensation of menthol. It’s often used in sprays, patches, and creams that are used to target muscle recovery, muscle aches, and joint discomfort. Menthol, which is considered a form of cold therapy, triggers cold-sensitive receptors resulting in an increase in blood flow. Not to mention, applying the Roll-On is much less cumbersome than walking around with an ice pack attached to your knee! 


White Willow Bark Extract 

For thousands of years, white willow bark extract has been used to help relieve sore muscles and achiness. The extract used in our Recovery Roll-On consists primarily of a phytochemical called salicin, the original source of aspirin, which reduces the production of pain-inducing chemicals in nerves. White willow bark extract also features other compounds including polyphenols and flavonoids, which play a supporting role in relieving sore muscles and achiness.* 


Aspen Bark Extract 

Also containing salicin, this ancient botanical remedy has been used in combination for treating joint pain and other discomforts.* 


Elderberry Extract

Boasting mildly astringent and anti-oxidative properties, elderberry extract contains natural substances called flavonoids, which can help to reduce swelling, fight inflammation, and boost the immune system while also nourishing the skin.* 


Vitamin E

This vitamin nourishes the skin while also containing anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties. Vitamin E is a more natural form of tocopheryl acetate, a substance that was used in the previous Recovery Roll-On formula.* 


Eucalyptus Oil 

Originally native to Australia, eucalyptus trees are now grown across the world and are praised for their medicinal properties. Eucalyptus oil contains some local pain-relieving properties to help soothe sore muscles and joints while also providing a fresh, clean aroma.* 


Tea Tree Oil

This herbaceous, woody essential oil is a powerful anti-fungal, anti-viral, antiseptic and antibacterial that works to reduce inflammation and enhance healing.*


Peppermint Oil 

In addition to easing muscle aches, peppermint oil also offers a soothing, minty-fresh scent.* 



A powerful ingredient – when first applied to the skin of the affected area, camphor numbs and cools the nerve endings. Then, this evergreen botanical warms the affected area as it increases circulation to stiff and sore muscles and joints, making it highly effective.*


When should you use Recovery Roll-On?


You can’t always take an ice bath, but you can certainly take Recovery Roll-On with you wherever you go. Whenever you feel an ache in your muscles, soreness in your back, or discomfort in your joints, simply reach for your Roll-On, apply where needed, and feel relief flood back.* Recovery Roll-On can be used as frequently as you need, and has a high temperature stability, making it perfect for throwing in your gym bag or car for fast relief when you need it most.
