After years of research and development,
a major break-through in topical pain relief is now a reality.
The first and only family of FDA-registered, non-prescription
topical analgesic ointments and creams made with cannabidiol (CBD).
Available in five formulations that correspond to varying pain levels and preference for scents.
All are made with natural ingredients and CBD-rich hemp extract.
CBD CLINIC™ is first line of FDA-registered, non-prescription, topical pain relief products made with cannabidiol (CBD). CBD CLINIC can be legally distributed throughout the US—regardless of state laws—due to the products’ compliance with US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and US hemp cultivation laws. Additionally, what makes CBD CLINIC products unique is they are the first CBD topical to incorporate FDA-approved analgesic ingredients and produced in an FDA-compliant, FDA-audited manufacturing facility.
Since its introduction in July 2016, healthcare professionals in nearly every state have been using CBD CLINIC to treat their patients’ chronic and acute musculoskeletal pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, sciatica, sports injuries, car accidents, surgical rehabilitation and many other causes. Clinical feedback has been extraordinary. We often receive comments such as “an absolutely positive response from our patients”, “My patients love it!”, and “For lots of our patients, CBD CLINIC has become their go-to solution for rapid relief from pain”. The products have also provided significant relief for current and retired professional athletes.
A Natural Science Revolution
Each formula has three (3) foundational components for supporting rapid and lasting relief from joint and muscle pain:
The base formulations of our ointments and creams are made with all-natural emollients that are readily absorbed by human skin. Comparatively, many other topical analgesic products use cheap, synthetic ingredients for their base, including benzyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, diglycol stearate, glyceryl monostearate, petrolatum, etc. CBD CLINIC emollients include organic beeswax, jojoba seed oil, cottonseed oil and shea butter. These were selected and combined via a proprietary method to speed delivery of pain-relieving ingredients to the muscles and joints.
Terpenes (C10H16 molecules) produce analgesic action in acute and neuropathic pain by decreasing neuronal excitability through peripheral mechanisms (1). Menthol and Camphor are the two most widely used terpenes in topical pain management today. Terpenes are aromatic organic hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of plants. They produce the distinct aroma associated with each plant. The therapeutic effects of terpenes are widely recognized (2). Other terpenes (essential oils) in our products--including Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Clove, Peppermint and Rich-Hemp extract—are combined with Menthol and/or Camphor in a proprietary process. Independently, these terpenes are well-recognized for their benefits in reducing inflammation, muscle pain, nerve pain, stress, and overall pain management (3).
In the mid-1990s, discovery of the endocannabinoid system enabled a major breakthrough in new therapies for reducing pain, inflammation and other ailments. The endocannabinoid system is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.
The endocannabinoid receptor system plays a significant role in regulating neurotransmitter function (4). One receptor that is being actively studied is called CB1. It is found in spinal and peripheral nervous tissue (including areas important for pain perception) (5). Although research into modulation of the endocannabinoid system is still in its early phases, studies published in the British Journal of Pharmacology and elsewhere have reported that some terpenes have been identified as having allosteric modulator properties, capable of slowing down neurotransmitter signaling (6). These findings help us understand the therapeutic relevance and benefits that terpenes may have with pain perception and how they can support reductions in pain.
By formulating FDA/DEA-compliant non-prescription analgesic creams and ointments combining natural, fast absorption properties with powerful deep pain-relieving terpenes targeting endocannabinoid receptors, revolutionary pain management is now available.
