Before Karen Sheady launched her CBD topicals company, she studied its potential. She put her analytical mind to work to create eco-friendly CBD health and beauty products.
First, however, in 2012, she took the challenge from a Montana dispensary to research and create cannabis-infused topicals and edibles. Initially, she developed tinctures, topicals, candies and cookies for patients with a medical-use card. She was thrilled by the relief people got using these products.
In 2013, her work became personal. Create a CBD cream that would carry her through radiation treatment for breast cancer without the burns. She knew the importance of using pure, hemp-derived CBD oil in easing pain and protecting the skin. Her first formula surpassed expectations.
She completed radiation with only minor pinkness. She’s since refined and perfected this soothing, cooling multipurpose burn cream that can also help relieve sunburn and other burn pain.
After that success, she wondered if she could create equally effective products using the pure CBD oil extracted from hemp. Products that would allow everyone to reap the benefits — without needing a state-issued, medical-use card.
