When Dr. Andrew Kerklaan first became interested in CBD, he had been practicing as a chiropractor, focusing on pain management for 20 years. His patients began asking questions about how cannabinoids could potentially impact their health, which prompted him to find out more about this non-psychoactive cannabis compound. “As a health professional, I wasn't equipped to answer those questions, but I was intrigued by it,” Dr. Kerklaan, who is based in Montreal, Canada, says. He delved into his research, studying cannabinoids, and attending relevant conferences. “It became very clear, very quickly that there was a huge potential for health benefits from CBD, with its anti-inflammatory components and the whole myriad of potential effects,” he said. After realizing that there weren’t many brands or products that he could recommend to his patients, Dr. Kerklaan decided to take matters into his own hands. He worked with biochemists on an ideal CBD formula that would end up being an extension of his practice, allowing him to help patients beyond the walls of his clinic. The result was a line of full-spectrum CBD topicals targeting pain, skin problems, PMS, and sleep issues. “We get pictures of skin conditions that cleared up after taking our products,”Dr. Kerklaan says. “It gets us up every morning, working hard to make sure that we can help as many people as we can.” Two of the most popular categories in the Dr. Kerklaan Therapeutics line are the ones that focus on pain and skin. Let's go ahead and learn about the different products in the Dr. Kerklaan Therapeutics line, shall we? Plus, how to incorporate them into your own wellness and beauty routine.
