HOW WE GOT HERE
In 2013, George, a close friend of the Redeem Team, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and gave us a call to discuss his thoughts on natural courses of treatment. Backed by his own diligent research, George was adamant about his choice to rely on natural remedies. Given our collective background in pharmaceuticals, his decision seemed unrealistic to us at the time. We were skeptical at best. Our research began in hopes of finding information to steer him in another direction; but ironically, we found exactly the opposite.
Our team uncovered numerous studies on cannabis-based cancer treatments that statistically showed the same or better survival results than traditional post-surgery chemotherapy.
Study after study showed that although using cannabis as a form of treatment might sound like quackery in the U.S., much of the world recognizes cannabis-based treatments as equally effective or more effective than traditional chemotherapy regimens. In fact, many countries require insurance to cover cannabis treatments for chronic pain and targeted destruction of cancer cells, just as they would other approved chemotherapies.
Our research led us on a journey of discovery. On this journey, we came to recognize one of cannabis’s most intriguing compounds, cannabidiol (CBD), and the potential benefits it carries for several conditions. Many peer-reviewed scientific papers evidenced the therapeutic benefits of CBD. Due to the federal government’s classification of CBD as a schedule 1 substance, most research had been carried out overseas in places like Israel and Europe. Early studies on animals were promising, leading to effective human clinical results for the treatment of epilepsy and pain, both with and without THC.
Concurrent with our rising excitement about CBD, the 2014 Farm Bill was approved. This allowed research and limited commercial production of CBD products. As commercial products began to appear, we couldn’t help but notice that inconsistencies in farming practices, hemp handling, and manufacturing processes often provided unbalanced formulations.
The CBD market was flooded with substandard products.
Much of the initial concern regarding low-quality products seemed to be over the lack of CBD potency. The FDA randomly tested CBD tinctures and found that the majority were grossly under the stated concentration of CBD. In fact, some contain no CBD at all. Others confused Hemp Seed Oil, which does not contain CBD, with true hemp extract from the hemp flower, which is the only source of CBD. While the lack of potency concerned us, we were fearful of the potential for serious harm caused by contamination with pesticides, residual extraction solvents, and fungus derived toxins (aflatoxins)--not to mention our concerns about the general lack of documentation, processing controls, and adequate testing (cGMP). Put simply, we were truly alarmed. We found our calling! And, Redeem was formed.
Combining more than 60 years of scientific experience and the power of natural remedies, we create an extremely effective and trustworthy line of products to improve health and wellbeing. Redeem bridges the gap between natural alternatives and pharmaceutical precision. Redeem Therapeutics manufactures CBD using organically certified hemp and highly controlled processes to guarantee a safe, effective product made with transparency, consistency, and balance every single time!
