Ingredient Story: Rapid Relief Roll-On Gel


Rapid Relief Roll-On Gel

Our newest formula and our first product to launch in 2022 is the Rapid Relief Roll-On. It is the spiritual successor to the Relief Cream, but unlike the relief cream, this product is offered as a gel. As I’ve mentioned in previous articles, we take pride in having full control over our process, and this starts with product development. We realized that as great as our relief cream is, it needed a fast-acting sidekick. Sometimes you don’t need the luxurious moisturizing balm, sometimes you just need quick acting, quick absorbing relief. Enter the Rapid Relief Roll-On!

The Roll-On gel is the ideal delivery method for rapid and targeted relief, given the roll-on application and gel consistency. No matter what your activity, the rollerball is a great addition to your bag, providing rapid, targeted relief on the go. Like our relief cream, the Rapid Relief Roll-On gel features ingredients that make this product the fast-acting powerhouse that it is. Let’s take a closer look at the three main active ingredients…


CFH Full Spectrum Hemp Flower Extract

The primary ingredient in this product is our full spectrum hemp flower extract. We create this extract using CO2 extraction on only the flowers of our hemp plants, grown on our organic Colorado farm. The extract works to support relief and recovery through maintaining homeostasis by way of the endocannabinoid system. As the spiritual successor to the relief cream, it was only natural that we’d start here.


Menthol

Menthol is a key active ingredient in our hemp recovery & relief products because it acts as a counterirritant with anti-inflammatory properties. The cooling & warming sensations that menthol causes can provide relief for discomfort, tension, and soreness. Our Roll-On Gel has a higher percentage of active menthol than our Relief Cream, resulting in fast-acting relief. 

As mentioned earlier, our intention here was for targeted, fast-acting, on-the-go relief. The addition of menthol to our full spectrum hemp extract gave us a product that absorbs quickly and works quickly. Who doesn’t want rapid relief and non-greasy skin?


White Willow Bark Extract

Last but not least, we included white willow bark extract. White willow bark extract contains a compound called salicin, which has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Studies have shown it aids in the relief of muscle & joint discomfort & tension. White willow bark extract also contains flavonoids and polyphenols, which in combination with salicin, contribute to the therapeutic effects of the extract. This botanical seemed like a natural inclusion in our fast acting roll-on gel, and once we tried it in the formula, we knew we had a winner.


Greater Than the Sum of it’s Parts

Similar to our full-spectrum hemp extract, this product is more than just the sum of it’s parts. I could rant for days about the benefits of each ingredient, but when combined and expertly formulated, we end up with something truly fantastic. Give it a go. You won’t be disappointed.
