HempNesic® PAIN-RELIEVING GEL
is the only FDA registered topical pain-relieving gel that directly influences the endocannabinoid system with Hemp-derived cannabidiol containing Capsaicin, Menthol, and Camphor. Numerous studies have demonstrated that mammalian tissue contains at least two cannabinoid (CB) receptors, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are shown to mediate analgesia in animal studies. Human studies are ongoing and preliminary data clearly show that pain is reduced using hemp-based cannabidiol when taken orally or when applied topically.

Blaine Labs makes no specific medical claims regarding CBD or hemp.
1. CBD products can make you high
Hemp plants naturally only contain trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol
(THC), the psychoactive compound found in another cannabis plant that causes
a euphoric effect. For a cannabis plant to be considered hemp, it must contain no
more than 0.3% THC per dry weight – that’s 33 times less than the least potent
euphoric-causing cannabis strain.
2. CBD products show on a drug test
Unless the drug test is specifically looking for CBD, no. Most drug tests are
looking for THC or other drug compounds.
3. CBD is illegal
CBD hemp oil is legal under U.S. federal law so products containing CBD only
are not illegal. However, any product that contains THC, even in small amounts, is
considered marijuana under federal law and is illegal.
4. CBD is actually medical marijuana
CBD is made from a completely different plant than “medical marijuana”. Only a
very specific form of cannabis can be called “marijuana.” Even marijuana itself
and “medical marijuana” are two very different things; the latter being subject to
dozens of strict federal regulations.
5. CBD products cannot be dispensed
Dispensing of products containing CBD is legal. There are no euphoric-causing
compounds in CBD making it an OTC product.
6. Using CBD is addictive.
CBD usage is non-addictive simply because it contains little to no THC which has
been proven to cause addiction in rare cases. Researchers have also found that
activating CB1 receptors affects the brain’s reward system and the release of the
“pleasure hormone” dopamine, explaining why THC can be addictive, but CBD
itself is not.
7. CBD is comparable to opiates
Currently, the strongest form of OTC pain relief on the market is Tylenol. The next
step would be a prescription narcotic or opiate, which as of late, has caused a
severe addiction and substance abuse epidemic. CBD has been proven to alleviate
the withdrawal of symptoms associated with addiction and is proven to be just as
effective in pain reduction as a narcotic.
8. CBD products have side effects
There are dozens of studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of cannabidiol in
treating various conditions. Most of these studies conclude that this CBD is safe
and virtually free of side effects.
