Green Roads arthritis pain relief review

In the midst of an opioid crisis, the search for homeopathic and natural pain remedies had turned into sheer desperation.

Enter Green Roads, a company who have been dedicated to providing a different caliber of product since 2013, has taken over the CBD market and earned over 30,000 5-star reviews. Offering a plethora of easy to use, fast-acting products, Florida based Green Roads, has taken the next step in helping “every person find the healthiest version of themselves”. Sold in over 10,000 retail locations, its accessibility comes second to none. Brightfield Research Group has Green Roads currently ranked as the largest privately-owned CBD company in the US.

Founder, Laura Fuentes, attributes her personal journey with a close friend Arby, as the foundation of the business today.

Arby suffered from multiple health issues and knowing a licensed compounding pharmacist, he sought help in Laura. He was certain that CBD was the answer to his medical issues, and he was absolutely right. It wasn’t long after that they turned their micro thoughts into macro dreams as they stretched their helping hands as far as they could reach. Knowing the benefits Arby received from CBD, their desire to spread these gifts became a primary goal.

Since then, after ever-growing and continued expansion, the Green Roads company has built quite the reputation.

Each batch of the Green Roads Arthritis Roll-On is clinically tested and lab reports are available, per batch, on their website. A supporting sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation, this pain relief roll-on harnesses the magic of hemp and engulfs it in a botanical army of super troopers.

With 1500 mg of added CBD per container along with Evening Primrose, Chickweed, Devil’s Claw, Menthol, Camphor and other anti-inflammatory power houses, it is a fiesta for your achy joints, sore muscles, tendons and ligaments. It sets a new bar past the likes of non-CBD containing products such as BioFreeze and Tiger Balm and leaving outdated gems like Mineral Ice and Icy Hot on dust-covered shelves.

As a former athlete and psoriatic arthritis sufferer, I have had endless issues with my fingers, wrists, and knees. A recent injury to my shoulder has also affected my neck.

I have been back and forth to the orthopaedic, neurosurgeon and have had many years in the hands of a rheumatologist. The majority of medications I have been on to subside the discomfort have caused my liver enzymes to elevate. I have refused the use of pain killers. Steroid creams have worked temporarily for my psoriasis but not for pain while Voltaren gel has helped only slightly with my arthritis inflammation.

Fishing, hunting, begging for a true pain relief product to get caught on one of my lines, Green Roads Arthritis Pain Relief Roll-On was dropped at my door. I didn’t know yet that the equivalent to a 500lb tuna had just jumped into my boat.

One thing that arguably bothers most people when using an arthritis type of cream or gel is that they are sticky and get all over your hands. You have to wash them immediately, making sure you don’t have an itch on your eye during application and monitor the drip from your tube. Generally, one gets a quick initial surge of menthol and it’s like you rubbed on some Vicks Vapor Rub for about 15 minutes and then nothing. These other products seem to play mind games with your body pains – “Hey, come over here and smell this, don’t worry about your shoulder being on fire”. The whole time you are ingesting that menthol smell, you are unfortunately still experiencing most of the aches that led you to use the cream in the first place.

Green Roads provides you with a completely new and game-changing pain management experience: pain management that is finally manageable.

Good-bye to sticky residue. This fast absorbing, quick drying formula rolls on incredibly easy and equally with a head that is 1 inch in size. It is small enough to get to tinier places like fingers and toes but large enough to spread well on bigger surfaces and perfect for hard-to-reach areas such as the neck, shoulders, and lower back. The length of the 3 oz container itself makes personal application a breeze; no more calling for whoever is in the house to rub cream on your back for you. It is fast acting, and your olfactory senses wake up once they smell the invigorating mix of anti-inflammatory botanicals. Longer lasting than other creams I have tried on the market: applying up to but not more than 4x a day was more than sufficient.

​Within 10 minutes this roll-on decreased the swelling around my finger joints.

As most arthritis sufferers know, the mornings can be the worst with stiff hands that you can barely bend or fingers that are stuck half open and won’t fan out. I began my trial with this product one early morning as I battled to close my hand around my coffee cup handle. I thought to myself, maybe this will be better, just maybe this will help.

Within that first 10 minutes and lasting a total of 3 hours before a need for a second application, I was finally as close to pain free as I have been in years. I was able to open and close my hands without feeling as if I had sausages for fingers.

Nightly, for the last 15 years, I have had whoever is available rub their fingers on mine to help with the stiffness and pressure. My better half has known of it to be a necessary occurrence, especially over the last 3 years. But over the last 5 nights, I have only asked him to do it twice. Coming from a younger person with late-stage arthritis, those 3 days of not needing to endure physical pain to help my pain are life changing.

Offering nothing but complete and utter transparency, Green Roads has taken their passion for helping others and harnessed the absolute goodness of CBD to create a line of products that soothes the physical core.

​Their Arthritis Pain Relief Roll-On contains 500mg per oz of a pharmacist proprietary formula, 100% free of animal testing using USA grown hemp. It is broad spectrum CBD which means that it encompasses all of the medicinal benefits of cannabis cannabinoids without the need for THC.

For overall product potency, brand reputation, labelling and ingredient transparency, ease of use and so much more, Green Roads Arthritis Pain Relief Roll-On gets a total of 6 stars from me. Hands down, this is a medicine cabinet staple that you will be forever grateful to have and more than willing to advocate for.
