Our Frequently Asked Questions are designed for those that want a quick yes or no answer followed with more information for those that prefer a lengthy detailed answer.
Are your products 3rd party tested? Yes
All our products are tested at a state certified lab for quality, purity and potency. We have used several 3rd party testing labs across the country and have chosen a local lab that specializes in testing all things Cannabis, which includes Hemp. This lab is also one of the few certified through the Ohio Medical Marijuana program. We use North Coast Testing Labs. https://www.northcoasttestinglabs.com/
Do you take other steps to ensure the quality of your products? Yes
What other steps do you take to ensure quality and purity of your products? FDA Standards
Unlike the majority of companies making creams using hemp oil, our Relief & Repair (R&R) Pain Cream is registered with the FDA as an over the counter topical analgesic. We can legally make medical claims about our product. Others will usually just offer a disclaimer that states the product hasn’t been evaluated or approved by the FDA.
This means they have not done any quality or purity testing as set forth by the FDA. For this reason, consumers are now wanting 3rd party COA (Certificate of Analysis) for products utilizing hemp oil in the formulation. This provides some level of confidence in the products they purchase. It’s always a good idea to check with their testing lab for results.
What does FDA registered mean, I thought the FDA “approved” products?
The FDA “approves” Pharmaceutical Drugs and it “registers” over the counter medications.
To receive this registration all of your ingredients must be submitted and checked through the FDA process to be what is known as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) while being effective in the claims being made, such as, pain relief, temporary pain relief, etc.
Has your cream passed the FDA’s tests to be registered as an over the counter medicine? Yes
What tests did you have to pass to become FDA registered?
The FDA requires laboratory proof of monthly samples for two years to pass their stability and shelf life testing.
If during that time it develops any contaminants it won’t receive registration. Contaminants such as mold, viruses, bacteria growth , fungus etc. We select the gentlest and most natural preservatives we could, that would allow us to ensure a healthy product but one that will provide shelf stability for several years. We are in the further process of the 4 year tests, which is required for sales in other countries.
Our Relief & Repair Cream is always manufactured at an FDA monitored and registered facility. This means, from start to finish, quality and purity is checked and double checked. If any contaminants are found in the final product. They scrap the whole batch and start over.
Each ingredient, including our hemp oil that is listed on our label, only comes from an FDA approved and verified source. This helps maintain purity and quality control.
We then have our cream 3rd party tested. Our cream is tested at a DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) certified Lab for quality, purity and potency. We chose one that specializes in Cannabis testing. This is to ensure our formula has been manufactured as designed.
Can you prove your R&R Pain Relief Cream is FDA registered? Yes
Here is the link to our Relief & Repair FDA registration number on file with the FDA: https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/drugInfo.cfm?setid=b6222294-657d-4257-b759-67f3f488e2d5
Can I test positive for THC with any of your products? No
Our Relief & Repair Pain Relief Cream utilizes a full spectrum hemp. Hemp is considered as having less than zero point three percent THC or 0.3% allowable strength. Since this is an inactive ingredient in our product, the level of concentration is low and lab results show no trace amounts of THC in the total volume of the cream. Therefore, it would not register in a drug test.
Have you verified people won’t test positive for THC in your products with 3rd party testing? Yes
Full spectrum hemp oil provides a major boost to the actions of Relief & Repair, but in essence it is a small amount in the total volume of the formula. It has been 3rd party tested and it was ND which means Non-Detectable for THC, to give our customer’s piece of mind. Consider us THC-free.
Why does your R&R cream help with my pain more than anything else I have tried?
Our cream doesn't utilize one or two ingredients to create the amazing relief it does. Ours is like an orchestra verses someone with one instrument. It is the cumulative effect of all the ingredients working in harmony to create the ultimate relief and repair of the tissues. When people add the oral drops the results are even more profound because they were built to effect all the systems of the body, not just one.
How do I use your products?
Oral drops - many people start with just a few drops under their tongue a couple times a day. If a few drops helps with the problem, stick with that program. If not, slowly increase your drops until you feel you've reached what works for you.
Relief & Repair Pain Relief Cream is recommended 3-4 times a day or as needed.
