The Natural Science Behind our Pain Relief Revolution

After a decade of research and development, a major breakthrough in topical pain relief is now a reality.

CBD CLINIC Professional Series topical medications are the first non-prescription ointments and creams that combine active pharmaceutical ingredients and hemp extract. Our Revolutionary Pain Relief products are formulated with natural emollients to help active analgesic compounds penetrate quickly so the counterirritants can interrupt pain signaling at the source of pain.

Each formula has three (3) foundational components for supporting rapid and lasting relief from joint and muscle pain, associated with daily living, sports injuries, arthritis, sprains, bruises and simple backaches.

Natural Emollients

Our formulations are made with all-natural emollients that are readily absorbed by human skin.

CBD CLINIC emollients include beeswax, jojoba seed oil, cottonseed oil, coconut oil, and shea butter. These were selected and combined via a proprietary method that quickly delivers pain-relieving ingredients into the skin. Comparatively, many other topical analgesic products use cheap, synthetic ingredients for their base, including benzyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, diglycol stearate, glyceryl monostearate, etc.

Powerful Terpenes

Powerful Terpenes (C10H16 molecules) work in synergy for optimal pain relief

Terpenes are aromatic organic hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of plants. They produce the distinct aroma associated with each plant, which is not only thought to protect the plant, but to offer therapeutic benefits.

The terpenes, menthol and camphor, are the two most widely used active pharmaceutical ingredients used in topical pain management today. The terpene molecules (C10H16) produce analgesic action in neuropathic pain by decreasing neuronal excitability through peripheral mechanisms.

Other terpenes in CBD CLINIC products — including eucalyptus, clove and peppermint — are combined with the active ingredients to create a synergy effect with the other natural ingredients for optimal benefits.

Endocannabinoid Modulators

Scientists discovered the endocannabinoid system in the human body

In the mid-1990’s, scientists discovered the endocannabinoid system within the human body, which interacts with phytocannabinoids (e.g., cannabinoids from the cannabis plant). The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous receptors located in ALL mammal brains throughout the central and peripheral nervous system. The endocannabinoid receptor system plays a role in signaling neurotransmitters in the brain.

Cannabinoid receptors can be found throughout the central nervous system, peripheral tissues, and the skin. The epidermal keratinocytes, hair follicles, and sebaceous glands are all able to create these compounds. The endocannabinoid system has 4 key elements: cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), endogenous lipid-based cannabinoids, enzymes that lead to cannabinoid synthesis or degradation, and cannabinoid antagonists (i.e, it blocks other cannabinoid receptors).
