Is Your Current Pain Relief or CBD Product Safe and Effective?

Is Your Current Pain Relief or CBD Product Safe and Effective? 1How To Know If Your CBD Pain Relief Products Are Safe or Will Even Work

With so many CBD products and creams out there is difficult to know which are safe…or will actually work. The CBD craze has unfortunately opened the doors for many companies to produce their own version of pain relief cream with or without CBD.

The problem is so many of them don’t even actually contain pure CBD and at the levels for effective use, not to mention that they are loaded with metals, perfumes, colors, additives that are not only toxic to you but the environment.

I wanted to take the time to shed light on what you should be looking for when you go to purchase a pain relief or a “CBD” product. Additionally, I wanted to answer some of the FAQs we get about the Theracream products we carry and  reassure you that the pain relief and hemp-oil extract products we trust, use and recommend are safe and effective.


Read on so you know how to protect yourself from being caught up in the CBD Craze… plus some FUN FACTS about CBD.

CBD – cannabidiol oil – can be found in everything from skin care to healing balms to sublingual products and is used to ease aches and pain, tension, stress, headaches and much more. The rise in popularity stems from research showing that the medicinal property of CBD is strong, offering quick acting and long-lasting pain relief and with little side effects.

At Theracream, a company that has been producing high quality skin care products for over 20 years sets themselves apart by having a Compound Pharmacist , Paul Sullivan, heavily involved in the process of the CBD Hemp Oil Extract that they use – from seed to product – to ensure the safety and quality of the oil.

Theracream products are tested by independent labs for contaminants and concentration of CBD. The results allow them to guarantee that their topical CBD cream – Theracream Extreme4– is 100% natural, clean, and safe so you can enjoy deep and long-lasting satisfaction without worry.

In 2017, the CBD market surpassed $400 million. Companies – big and small – jumped on board to sell products that contained CBD oil. Many companies purchased CBD oil for their products with little or no background research in growth practices which resulted in many of today’s CBD products being contaminated with pesticides and other toxins.

An investigative report by ABC7/WJLA looked at test results from a lab that tested 240 top-selling products for 300 contaminants and discovered that “70 percent of products were found “highly contaminated” with heavy metals like lead and arsenic, herbicides like glyphosate (the active ingredient in RoundUp) and a host of other contaminants including pesticides, BPA and toxic mold.”

It is frightening to think that a person may believe they are treating their ailments with a natural substance when, in fact, they may be ingesting or slathering on something that is highly toxic.

How do you know if your CBD oil product is clean and safe?

Look for companies who have their products tested by a third-party, independent laboratory and will share their results. The lab will not only test for the presence of contaminants, but it will also test for the amount (concentration) of CBD oil that is actually in the product.

Surprisingly some products may have a lot less CBD oil than claimed on the label (we will cover this in a future post and podcast). This is exactly why I use it on myself, recommend it to clients and give it to my family(they were the first test subjects of course).
