Let’s face it: There’s a lot of misinformation in the relatively new CBD industry. Exactly how much CBD is in the product? What concentration of CBD is necessary to be effective? How can you be sure the product is working?
“These were our concerns as well, as we began to see more and more CBD products on the market. How do you know which products you can trust?” says John Walsh, a partner at CBD Healthcare Company.
That’s why Walsh and Tom Wellman teamed up to launch CBD Healthcare Company. The center of the company’s operations is in Tampa, Florida, where the pair of long-time wellness specialists have developed professional products for the spa and wellness industries for more than a decade.
“We have long been serving professional spa, chiropractic, therapeutic and massage practitioners around the country, so it was a natural fit to create the most comprehensive CBD product line for skincare, muscle relief and massage,” says Wellman.
Now professionals and at-home consumers are turning to CBD Healthcare Company as the trusted source for responsible ingredients, rigorous testing and effective concentrations of CBD.
CBD Healthcare Company products are available nationwide, and Walsh and Wellman say they’re seeing increased sales of the company’s muscle relief salves and lotions. In addition to CBD, the products’ proven best-in-class treatment ingredients like MSM and Capsaicin are known to enhance muscle and joint recovery.
CBD Healthcare Company – CBD Natural Relief Salve comes in three strengths to use for common, nagging or more progressive muscle aches and joint pain. It is formulated with an intensive amount of broad-spectrum hemp oil, which is rich in cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, combined with coconut, lavender and eucalyptus oils.
CBD Healthcare Company – Herbal CBD Muscle Relief Lotion contains powerful herbs that help calm and soothe sore muscles, the mineral MSM that targets connective tissue and joints, and oils that enhance deep penetration into the muscles. It is also formulated with an intensive amount of broad-spectrum hemp oil.
“We’re seeing a lot of golfers, lacrosse and tennis players using our products to ease pain after activity,” says Wellman. “Besides the maximum absorption with no greasy feel, our products provide a subtle, fresh scent. It’s a refreshing change of pace from the irritating camphor or menthol smell that people have had to endure from typical pain relief lotions and salves. Our pain and muscle relief products are formulated with intensive broad-spectrum hemp oil for the utmost relief.”
CBD is one of many beneficial compounds found in the hemp plant and is not psychoactive, unlike THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, another compound found in the cannabis plant that produces marijuana’s high. By stimulating the endocannabinoid system, CBD is reported to promote homeostasis, reduce pain sensation and decrease inflammation. However, not all CBD products are created equally.
“Many of the muscle and joint relief products on the market lack transparency in the sense that the majority do not provide an adequate amount of CBD per ounce to be effective, and they don’t disclose that information to the consumer. Minimal amounts of CBD are often masked with an increase in analgesics like camphor, menthol and eucalyptus,” says Walsh.
“Furthermore, we found that the market is saturated with CBD oral tinctures and gummies. While these have some beneficial characteristics in terms of the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD, our topical products provide a more direct path to delivering benefits to skin, muscles and joints.”
Walsh says CBD Healthcare Company’s manufacturing process is traceable from the plant genetics to the finished, high-grade formulas. A QR code on each product accesses a third-party certificate of analysis for each product and lot number. A second certificate of analysis provides the full profile of hemp extract. Extracted from hemp grown in America with U.S. agricultural permits, the CBD in CBD Healthcare Company products is extracted and tested in the U.S.
“Random testing reveals as high as 70 percent of CBD products do not contain the amount of CBD listed on the label, while other products may not clearly label their CBD content or falsely advertise ‘full-spectrum CBD,’” says Walsh. “CBD Healthcare Company ensures customers have complete and accurate information before they purchase any product. What is on the label is in the container, with organically grown, non-GMO hemp, certified locally, so you’re able to verify the purity of the product.”
Some of the rapidly growing interest in CBD products for pain may be attributed to a recent press release from the Arthritis Foundation. Arthritis means “inflammation of the joints” and refers to any condition where joints in the body become aggravated by an immune response. In a survey, the Arthritis Foundation found that of 2,600 respondents, 79% were currently using CBD, have used it in the past or are considering using it as an alternative therapy to help manage their arthritis pain. The Arthritis Foundation says it is “intrigued by the potential of CBD to help people find pain relief and are on record urging the FDA to expedite the study and regulation of these products.”
Such analysis is gratifying to the founders of CBD Healthcare Company, who have been business partners since 2005 when they formed a joint venture company (Sa-Wan) serving the spa, wellness, therapeutic and chiropractic industries. During the last 15 years, they have provided high-quality holistic protocols and products specializing in herbal therapeutic massage like warm stone and Royal Thai (herbal ball). Such products have been offered on 120 cruise ships; at various hotels and resorts including Marriott, Ritz and Bellagio; as well as spas including Montage and Canyon Ranch. Prior to this, Wellman held general management positions in multinational pharmaceutical and medical device operations. Walsh specialized in executive and operational management of large-scale technology companies and manufacturers.
“This is an exciting breakthrough in pain management, and we are excited to have launched CBD Healthcare Company at the infancy of an industry that will benefit so many,” says Wellman. “We’re offering professionals and consumers a source they can depend on for responsible ingredients, rigorous testing, effective concentrations of CBD and transparent test results. Our CBD potency begins where most others end.”
