Parker Laboratories, Inc., which develops, manufactures, and sells pain relief creams, ultrasound and electromedical contact media, and institutional cleaners and disinfectants, is expanding its analgesics line. The company has added Helix CBD Therapy Cream, CBD Clinical Cream, and Tri-Active Therapy Cream to its HelixTM line.
Manufactured in America, and exclusively sold to consumers through chiropractors, physical therapists, fitness professionals, and other pain care practitioners, these new formulations have been painstakingly developed by Parker and thoroughly tested to ensure safety, effectiveness, and consistency. These include: - Tri-Active Therapy Cream, available for sale in a 5g sample, 3 oz. roll on, and 4 oz. tubes - CBD Therapy Cream, available in a 2 oz. tube (300 mg of CBD) and 4 oz. tube (600 mg of CBD) - CBD Clinical Cream, available in a 2 oz. tube (600 mg of CBD) and 4 oz. tube (1,200 mg of CBD) “These new Helix Tri-Active and CBD pain creams extend and expand on the original Helix Pain Relieving Cream formula,” said Joseph Salamone, DC, DAAPM, FRCCM. “For my patients that struggle with chronic pain, these new Helix Tri-Active and CBD Pain Relieving Creams offer an effective option.”
“Parker Laboratories has been hard at work developing these new Helix products. We’re proud to introduce these to chiropractors, physical therapists, and fitness industry professionals. We are confident they’ll quickly recognize their quality effectiveness in relieving their patients’ pain,” said Neal Buchalter, President of Parker Laboratories.
Helix Tri-Active Therapy Cream delivers three active ingredients in one pain relief solution: methyl salicylate, menthol, and camphor at 12.5%, 7.4%, and 3.2% respectively. It also contains arnica, ilex, and tangerine oil. Helix CBD Therapy and Clinical Creams contain 7.4% menthol (active ingredient), plus CBD, arnica, ilex, and tangerine oil. All Helix pain relief products offer smooth consistency, allowing for easy application and optimal absorption.
Parker currently manufactures and sells Helix Professional Pain Relief Cream to healthcare professionals, a formula of 7.4% menthol with arnica, ilex, aloe, and tangerine oil for a fresh citrusy fragrance.
Harnessing the Science of CBD
For thousands of years, CBD has been used in the management of a plethora of health issues. In the field of pain management, the data supporting CBD use is increasing exponentially. A recent paper published by Argueta et. al. in Frontiers of Pharmacology, reports that CBD could have benefits for relieving chronic pain, improving sleep, and reducing inflammation.1 A review of 28 studies (2,454 participants) of cannabinoids in which chronic pain was assessed found the studies generally showed improvements in pain measures in people taking cannabinoids. The average number of patients who reported at least a 30 percent reduction in pain was greater with cannabinoids than with placebo.2
