With over 20 years of international clinical and pain management experience, Dr. Andrew Kerklaan has become the “go-to” expert on the science and health benefits of cannabinoids. Originally launching his chiropractic career in London at a prestigious clinic, his patients included everyone from rockstars to royalty.
Dr.Kerklaan Therapeutics was inspired by his continuous quest to relieve patients of their pain via natural, non-invasive means. Convinced of the need for trusted, effective products, Dr. Kerklaan worked in tandem with leading biochemists, focus groups and testing labs to develop breakthrough topical formulas harnessing the power of cannabinoid extracts. The results are clean topicals that are effective, easy to use and aromatically soothing.
What made you start Dr Kerklaan Therapeutics?
I first became interested in CBD treating my patients in Montreal, Canada where CBD products and cannabis are federally legal. My patients began asking questions about how cannabinoids could potentially impact their health, which prompted me to learn out more about this non-psychoactive cannabis compound.
As a health professional, I wasn’t equipped to answer questions about CBD, but I was intrigued by it so I delved into research, studying cannabinoids, and attending relevant conferences. It became very clear, very quickly that there was a huge potential for health benefits from CBD.
After realizing that there weren’t many brands or products that I could recommend to my patients I decided to take matters into my own hands. I worked with biochemists on an ideal CBD formula that would end up being an extension of my practice and the care I always provided try patients, allowing me to help patients beyond the walls of his clinic. The result was a line of broad-spectrum CBD topicals targeting relief, skin problems, PMS, and sleep issues.
How do you overcome the lack of regulation in the cannabis industry as a CBD brand?
My name and face are on the brand. I need to stand behind the products we make and ensure they are both effective and the highest-quality CBD products out there.
We use 100% Oregon grown hemp processed in our own QA controlled Oregon lab, using extraction and refining methods including Chromatography. We provide lab tests all along the production process. Our CBD products are 0% THC and produced in accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill in the USA and EU regulations.
3rd Party ISO Lab testing occurs at each of the 3 QA points:
- Extracted Oil
- Bulk Infused Batch
- Finished Product Lots
What is the most surprising thing you’ve learned about CBD?
The truly vast potential CBD has to help health and wellbeing. The next few years are going to be very exciting now that research into CBD is allowed. I believe significant research support will be found confirming all the potential.
What do you wish more people knew or had a better understanding of when it came to CBD?
- CBD is a SAFE, effective, plant-based approach to wellbeing
- You cannot get high from CBD topicals
- Our products do not smell like hemp/pot
How do you suggest people go about figuring out which CBD products are right for them?
There are many CBD products now on the market. I recommend consumers get as educated as possible. There are more and more credible resources to find useful information to help make informed decisions. We see topicals as fantastic introductory products for people who are new to CBD. Some people may be hesitant about ingesting CBD but because out topicals don’t get into the blood stream they offer a great first step. A simple and effective way to try CBD for the first time.
