We believe that health and wellness start at our feet. Our feet contain 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles,107 ligaments and thousands of nerve receptors. Proper footcare can help reduce muscle aches, inflammation, ease anxiety, and enhance sleep.  

The secret to happy feet is simple; footcare. Footcare is the basic care of foot and nails. This includes routine washing of feet and toes, trimming of nails, management of bunions, bone issues, corn shaving and treating cracked skin. If you have foot pain, you are probably researching ways to achieve relief. You may also be searching for the benefits of using CBD products to manage your foot pain. CBD has been known to help maintain proper footcare.


How does CBD help footcare?

People often have issues of the foot that stem from trauma to the nerves, bone, muscle, age, and other conditions that can cause one to be prescribed a footcare routine. Today, pain management has become more accessible with topical CBD products that can be treated in the comfort of home. Because the team at A.LEAF have over 100 years of combined experience in the footwear industry, we know firsthand how frustrating foot pain management can be.


The approach to footcare should be accompanied by a routine of wellness and healthy habits. For pain management, A.LEAF has formulated its signature SOOTHING CREAM to provide moisture-rich properties that soothe dry cracked feet and help relieve conditions such as:

  • Heel spurs
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Neuropathy pain
  • Chronic Pain from previous injuries


SOOTHING CREAM can also be applied daily to keep feet healthy and happy by addressing the following:

  • Fungus – CBD has Anti-fungal properties
  • Hydration
  • Moisturization
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Reduces “pings” and “tings” of the nerves

In addition to foot creams, muscle relief and oil drops, A,LEAF has developed a foot soak to include in your routine. Treat your feet right with a fantastic foot soak and A.LEAF’s FOOT SANDS available in our Premium CBD Gift Set. The sands are made with salts from the Dead Sea and has amazing anti-fungal and soothing properties and promotes a long-lasting relaxed feeling. 


Here are some helpful tips on using CBD products in your daily footcare routine.


CBD routine for runners.

A good routine we have found is to apply our SOOTHING CREAM before the run and after for maximum relief. Runners are finding that this application does not leave oily or sticky residue for barefoot, low impact as well as moisture absorption for those who wear socks. Once the run is done – a 20 minute soak in our FOOT SANDS, followed by a metatarsal massage using our SOOTHING CREAM or Peppermint TINCTURE, creates a calm, relaxed, and relieved set of feet!


CBD pedicure?

Want to optimize your pedicure experience? Similar to how runners end their day, end yours with a relaxing 20-minute soak and a full foot massage with our Peppermint oil drops (TINCTURE). It creates an amazing experience that anyone would enjoy. Grab one of our gift sets and take along with you on your next medi/ped appointment.


Footsie at night

Enjoy a restful night by massaging in SOOTHING CREAM to your feet and then wrap with a pair of cozy socks (optional) just before bed. This will allow the cannabinoids to enter your system and provide a relaxed night’s sleep. Want more? Include half a dropper of our TINCTURE for an even more calming evening.


Special note:

Many of our customers suffer from issues like plantar fasciitis, metatarsal problems, and others explained above. Topical CBD products like SOOTHING CREAM can help to treat symptoms, but do not cure any underlying issues that may be the base of the problem. Please visit and discuss your options with your podiatrist.
