We've seen a plethora of cannabidiol (CBD) manufacturers and retailers pop up over recent months and years as a result of the booming demand for the cannabinoid, along with all other medical marvels of the cannabis plant. But some of these companies are more focused on financially capitalizing on the industry, and with good reason: studies estimate that the CBD could hit a whopping $20 billion by 2024, so there's a lot of pie to go around.
But others are in it to share the gospel of plant-based therapeutics. And Medical Mike's is one of them. Understanding the incredible potential that CBD can have on both people and animals, the mastermind behind the growing brand has dedicated his time and expertise to develop a potent and effective line of CBD products that are aimed at helping alleviate a number of uncomfortable and painful symptoms that can get in the way of living one's best life.
Though special in their own right, the backstory of Medical Mikes’ doesn't stem from tales of a parent looking for an alternative to treat their children's seizures, or adults looking to calm their pain and inflammation. Instead, this story starts with a furry companion — a beautiful Saint Bernard dog, and Mike's treasure. In fact, it was Torre who was the first experience Mike had with CBD. Like most dogs, Torre began to develop issues related to aging, including joint pain. Coupled with Torre's size thanks to her breed, her joint issues were magnified with additional weight placing undue pressure on her limbs. Over time, Torre exhibited signs of discomfort and increasingly found it difficult to move and even sleep. Like any adoring pet owner, Mike sought ways to help alleviate the pain that his furry friend was suffering from and relieve her discomfort.
After months of research and administering various traditional medications and supplements, Mike noticed CBD being used in similar situations with others. As such, he decided to give the cannabinoid a try and gave it to Torre to see what kind of effects it would have. Amazingly, CBD did seem to help relieve Torre of her joint pain. Her mobility and sleep improved, as did her joie de vivre. The average lifespan of a Saint Bernard is anywhere from 7 to 10 years. But perhaps thanks to Torre's new lease on life after experiencing less pain and discomfort in her joints, she lived to nearly 13 years of age, much to Mike's pleasure.
After adding CBD to her daily routine, Torre was able to enjoy all those extra years with her best friend. Now, Mike is on a mission to help others - both humans and pets - get a handle on their painful and uncomfortable symptoms stemming from a variety of ailments with his line of Medical Mikes’ CBD products. Medical Mikes’ CBD Oil is made using only the highest-quality ingredients. The products are made using full-spectrum CBD that has been extracted along with many other beneficial cannabinoids of the cannabis plant, including CBC, CBG, and CBDA. Studies have shown that the "entourage effect" that occurs when all cannabinoids of the cannabis plant work together can provide heightened therapeutic effects. Despite this, all of Medical Mikes’ CBD products contain less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) since the CBD used is sourced from hemp. As such, consumers can rest assured knowing that they can experience the benefits of CBD without the mind-altering effects of THC.
Mike may have started using CBD oil to help treat his precious pup's joint pain, but studies are linking the cannabinoid to other benefits, including the alleviation of inflammation, anxiety, seizures, nausea, gastrointestinal issues, symptoms of cancer, and among other health conditions, both in humans and dogs. The relief that CBD has been shown to provide is due to the cannabinoid's interaction with the endocannabinoid system. Medical Mikes’ products capitalize on CBD's potential to provide these benefits to those seeking relief from their health and medical issues.
Medical Mikes’ CBD oil products are always thoroughly tested by vetted third-party labs. The CBD used in the product line is sourced directly from small local hemp farms in the northeast that harvest organic hemp and practice sustainability. As such, Medical Mike's is helping provide quality products while also helping sustain local hemp farmers who are dedicated to growing the highest-quality plants.
Medical Mikes’ farm to bottle approach to hemp-derived CBD products is designed to help consumers with specific needs find relief by using high-quality, locally sourced, simple ingredients. Mike's successful experience seeing his best friend's relief from joint pain has inspired him to help others, and his organic CBD oil products are doing just that.
