- Variety of topical products
- Great for athletes
- All-natural ingredients
CBDMedic may be a newer brand on the block, but it’s quickly gaining popularity thanks to the company’s primary ambassador—Rob Gronkowski. And while I myself am not a Patriots fan, I can appreciate Gronk as an athlete with his record-breaking nine seasons. But perhaps his most recent choice to partner with CBDMedic has garnered even more attention than his two Superbowl Championships, sine he recently retirement from the NFL in 2019.
One of the many reasons that Gronk decided to partner with CBDMedic was due to the high quality of their products and how they helped him feel pain-free. The brand excels at making a variety of CBD topicals, which are a great application style for athletes and anyone else who wants to target a specific area on the body.
While trying out some of the CBDMedic products, I found myself always taking the active sport stick on-the-go with me, especially since it’s easily tucked away in my gym bag. This topical stick also has plenty of natural pain relieving ingredients like clove oil and frankincense oil to enhance the effects of CBD.

At the end of a long and tiring day, I always opted for the CBDMedic muscle & joint spray. This was especially helpful after an intense workout to cut down on the delayed onset muscle soreness, or to just help deal with everyday aches and pains. Plus the spray is well-suited for use on larger areas, making targeted pain relief easy.

When it comes to my skin, I’m very particular about the products that I use. My face is quite sensitive, and I can’t use a lot of general skincare products that you might find on your local grocery store’s shelves. However, the facial cleanser from CBDMedic soothed and moisturized my skin without irritation. In addition to CBD hemp extract, the cleanser also includes jojoba seed oil, tea tree oil, and lavender oil for a nourishing effect on the skin.
Since CBDMedic only focuses on producing CBD-infused topicals, they create some of the best creams, lotions, and ointments on the market. Some of their products are geared more towards pain, while others are great for skincare needs. Their topical pain relief products include arthritis ointment and cream, back & neck ointment, foot & ankle topicals, and massage oil. Many customers like to use these products to alleviate arthritis aches, joint pain, and inflammation from minor injuries.
Additionally, CBDMedic skincare products include acne cream, itch & rash ointment, and eczema ointment (which worked well on my own eczema flare-ups that make my hands and feet extremely dry.)
To make their products, CBDMedic uses hemp plants that have been grown in the United States, either originating from farms in Colorado or Oregon.
CBDMedic notes that each batch of product is submitted to third-party labs that test for heavy metals, fungi, bacteria, and other unwanted toxins. They also test for CBD, THC, and other cannabinoid levels. You can review the lab test results on the CBDMedic website here, although it is worth mentioning that these analyses only show the cannabinoid profile of each product and does not display the test results for the biological or chemical solvent analysis.
With Gronk as an ambassador to CBDMedic, the brand is well paired for use with athletes who want to aid in recovery and relief. The company excels at making a variety of CBD topicals for people who may not enjoy ingesting CBD oil, or simply prefer to apply a CBD cream or ointment directly to a specific problem area. All of their products are THC free and made with all-natural ingredients, so there are no artificial dyes, synthetic fragrances, steroids, parabens, petrolatum, or phthalates in their topicals.
These products changed my life. I wish I had been able to use CBDMEDIC while I was playing. It would have made a huge difference in my pain management during my career and I know it can help many others who are looking for safe, pill-free solutions to managing pain.”
