Well Care Botanicals CBD Topicals: Our Review

  • Save

One of the crucial uses of cannabinoids, apart from recreation, is pain relief. Safely extracted cannabinoids make for some of the most effective and healthy pain-relief agents. And, though you can use cannabinoids in several ways to get rid of that unbearable joint or muscle pain, topicals are best for the purpose.

For one thing, they are discrete and easy to use. Secondly, you can apply them to the exact spot that’s bothering you, without worrying about the consequences for your entire body. Third, because of the targeted application, the effect is specific to the location of the pain.

Topicals come in many forms, such as creams, gels, roll-ons, sprays, and even skincare products, such as lotions and lip balms.

But when it comes to topicals for pain relief, one company that you can trust without a sweat is Well Care Botanicals.

Its pain relief topicals certainly give us the impression that they Care!

In this blog, we’ll review some of the brand’s best topicals.

So, read on…

About the Brand

Perhaps the best thing about Well Care Botanicals is that it was founded by a doctor. Once you know that, your trust goes up a notch, doesn’t it?

As the brand clarifies on its website, the team’s target is to help customers “achieve greater health and wellness” and “enjoy a better quality of life”.

Well Care Botanicals’ line of products is proof enough of its goals.

The product range comprises gel capsules, pain creams and gels, skincare products, tinctures, and pet products—items you would associate with health and wellness and not recreation.

But, are the products effective?

The proof of the pudding is in the eating.

However, what went into the pudding and how it was made can give a fair idea as well. So first, let’s get into that first.

Hemp Source

Based out of Beachwood, New Jersey, Well Care Botanicals sources its hemp from licensed farms in the US. Although the exact location hasn’t been provided by the brand, the website mentions that the hemp is farmed sustainably and organically.  

Extraction & Manufacturing

The firm uses the CO2 method to derive extracts from hemp. It uses broad-spectrum hemp in its products. That is, the extracts contain natural cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids but no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Ingredients

Well Care Botanicals uses only all-natural ingredients in its products. Apart from broad-spectrum hemp extracts, the products contain a host of plant-based oils and extracts and zero additives.

Third-Party Lab Testing

Well Care Botanicals gets all its products tested by Desert Valley Testing labs. You can get the individual Certificates of Analysis and the Lab Purity Results on every product page.

Brand Reputation

Looking at the customer reviews, Well Care Botanicals seems to be a stellar performer. Most of the products have got nothing but five stars from customers—both on the brand website and third-party sites. Only a handful of customers have complained that the pain cream was just about okay and did not work any wonders.

Certifications

The company’s production processes are GMP-certified.

Marketing Practices & Company Policies

The brand website is easily navigable and user-friendly. There is a blog section to answer some of the key questions customers may ask. The product pages are comprehensive and contain all crucial info, including ingredients and CoAs.

The company has moderately friendly customer policies. Shipping is free for orders over $75. The company ships orders within 2-3 business days, barring weekends and holidays. However, the customer has to bear the tariffs and taxes, if any, levied on the shipped order.

The company doesn’t accept responsibility for damages to orders during transit or lost shipments. For damaged products, you have to contact the shipping firm and seek damages.

However, the brand does offer a 14-day money-back guarantee on sealed items that are returned in their original packaging. But that does not include the shipping charges.

As per industry standards, you’re required to contact the brand’s customer service before sending back the order/item and fetch a Return Merchandise Authorization number. You will need to pen it down on the package that you’ll be returning.

If the brand finds the merchandise in satisfactory condition, it will initiate your refund within 24 hours of receiving the package.

Buying Guide for Beginners

If you’re considering buying hemp topicals, follow this buyer’s guide before placing your order.

Step 1. What is your requirement? Do you want to use the product to control occasional pain or chronic pain? What kind of pain is it? Is it very severe? Your choice of product should depend on your answers to these questions. If your pain is very severe, it’s better to go for a strong product. If your pain is mild, you should choose a product of low strength. It’s best to start with a product of lower strength, for that matter. You can use a stronger product if it doesn’t work.

Step 2. Choose a product that’s convenient for you. For instance, if you love to travel, choose one that’s easy to apply, such as roll-ons and sprays.

Step 3. Choose a reliable and reputable brand. Such brands may charge a bit higher than the lesser-known ones, but at least you can rest assured that the product would be worth the price.

Step 4. Before you buy any cannabinoid product for pain relief, do consult your doctor, especially if you suffer from certain health conditions and take prescribed medications for those.

Well Care Botanicals: FAQs

Q: Does Well Care sell any other kind of topical products?

A. They do. They have numerous skincare products, such as intense skin relief salve for sensitive skin issues, advanced daily repair body lotion for regular moisturization, a body butter, and several other pain relief variants in topicals.

Q: Does Well Care sell CBD Tinctures and Capsules?

A. They certainly do. Well Care sells full-spectrum and CBD isolate soft gel capsules of varying strengths, as well as broad-spectrum hemp extract oils of different potencies and flavors.

Q: What kind of pet products are available with this brand?

A: Well Care Botanicals sells broad-spectrum tinctures and chews for all pets. While the tinctures are unflavored, the chews come in beef flavor. The tinctures are mostly meant for calming their nerves, while the chews are great for stronger joints and muscles.

Q: Why are Well Care’s tinctures called hemp extract oil? Is it the same as hemp seed oil?

A: Hemp seed oil is not the same as what Well Care sells as Hemp Extract Oil. The former is extracted from hemp seeds by the cold-pressing method. However, hemp extract oil comes from the entire plant and is extracted by the CO2 method. Hemp seed oil doesn’t contain any cannabinoids, whereas these hemp extract oils contain cannabinoids.

Parting Thoughts

Hemp-based topicals can be a boon for those who suffer from chronic or frequent pain. Many people often suffer from joint and/or muscle pain, arthritic pain, body pain or ache, or pain born of some other medical condition.

If you are one of them, Well Care’s hemp topical products could effectively relieve you of such pain, quickly and without any side effects that often accompany painkillers.
