About Green Relief

Published on: May 1, 2017

Made with 100% natural CBD and hemp oils, Green Relief gel capsules promise to deliver pain relief in as little as 30 minutes, without paying for prescription medications, or worrying about side effects or forming a habit.

Green Relief’s website also tells us the supplement is made in an FDA-compliant facility in the U.S. Simply take one capsule, wait 30-60 minutes to see how you feel, and then take as many additional capsules as you need each day.

Wait … is “Pastor Adam” actually recommending that you use a hemp-based product for pain relief? Will it work? Is it even legal?

In this article, we’ll talk about Green Relief and some of the important issues surrounding it so you can make a more empowered purchasing decision.

Hemp Oil vs. Cannabis vs. Marijuana: What’s the Difference?

The reality is that hemp and marijuana are the same plants, formally known as Cannabis sativa. The difference is that hemp is specifically bred as a crop, which can be used in everything from clothing and construction to nutrition, with very low (essentially nonexistent) THC content.

On the other hand, since tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive ingredient that gets users “high,” marijuana is the version of cannabis that’s probably the first thing to pop into people’s mind.

In addition to the THC in marijuana, cannabis in general (including hemp-based products like Green Relief) contains other compounds known as cannabinoids. These 50+ compounds mimic those naturally produced in our body by our endocannabinoid system and deliver a variety of effects.

Whereas THC binds to endocannabinoid receptors in the brain, thus delivering a “high,” another cannabinoid called CBD binds to receptors in other parts of the body, which can provide a variety of benefits—including pain relief—without intoxication.

Here’s a quick video from Leafly that can work as a great introduction to the concept:

What about the enkephalins mentioned in the Green Relief video?

Britannica.com tells us that enkephalins aren’t hormones, but are substances known as beta-endorphins, which act as endogenous (made inside the body) narcotic-like painkillers.

These are often released by the body in response to pain, and we found 100+ PubMed references showing that CBD could potentially release enkephalins inside the human body.

Speaking of references, is there any scientific evidence showing Green relief will deliver on the promises made in its video?

Are the Ingredients In Green Relief CBD Oil Clinically Proven to Work?

While there wasn’t a label listed on the Green Relief website, Pastor Adam tells us each capsule contains 10mg of 100% pure quality CBD oil, in addition to 490 milligrams of pure hemp oil.

Pro tip: According to Chronic Therapy, hemp oil is derived from the seeds of industrial hemp, while CBD oil is derived from hemp’s flowers, leaves, and stalks. Hemp oil typically contains lower quantities of CBD than CBD oil; less than 25 parts per million and up to 15% CBD, respectively.

We didn’t encounter any clinical evidence for Green Relief specifically, but in addition to the 100+ studies mentioned earlier specifically related to enkephalins and cannabinoids, there exist thousands of clinical trials studying CBD's effects on everything from pain and Parkinson's to cancer and epilepsy.

The result? Nora D. Volkow, Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, summarized it this way in a 2015 presentation before the Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control:

“Rigorous clinical studies are still needed to evaluate the clinical potential of CBD for specific conditions. However, pre-clinical research (including both cell culture and animal models) has shown CBD to have a range of effects that may be therapeutically useful, including anti-seizure, antioxidant, neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-tumor, anti-psychotic, and anti-anxiety properties.”

When it comes to Green Relief, what will you pay for these potential benefits? Before getting there, let’s quickly talk about side effects.

Will Green Relief Cause Any Side Effects?

On the supplement’s website, the company claims that Green Relief is side effect-free. For CBD in general, WebMD indicates that common side effects include dry mouth, low blood pressure, lightheadedness, and drowsiness.

However, it’s been shown to be safe for use in 300mg daily doses for up to six months. There are no known drug interactions.

How Much Does Green Relief Cost?

  • 1 Bottle (30 capsules): $69
  • 3 Bottles: $177
  • 6 Bottles: $294

All orders come with free S&H, as well as an 180-day money back guarantee.

Green Relief Capsules vs. Competing CBD Supplements

Whether you’re in the market for oils, pills and capsules, tinctures, drinks, or foods, there are a lot of CBD-based products on the market competing with Green Relief. In fact, we’ve written about popular products like Sol CBD (tincture, $95), Miracle CBD Tincture ($55), SuperCBD+ (pills, $80), and BioCBD Plus (capsules, $99).

Despite all the potentially positive research behind CBD, it’s important to point out that the compound is still considered a supplement, which means it’s largely unregulated by the government. In other words, there could be a big difference in quality, as well as the CBD levels, across brands.

Given this, how can you decide whether or not Green Relief is the best option for your money?

First, based on the sheer amount of competition, the manufacturer’s claim that Green Relief “is one of the only pure, capsule based formulas of CBD on the market today” doesn’t seem to necessarily ring true.

However, Bhangers.com’s Cannabidiol (CBD) Buyers Guide indicates that 5-10mg of CBD per dose is considered a small serving size for an adult. As a result, it appears you might have to take additional Green Relief capsules if you’re looking for heavier relief (just as mentioned on the supplement’s site).

Also, the buyer’s guide indicates you’ll need to continue taking a CBD supplement for at least 30-60 days to experience full results.

Trying to decide delivery methods? CBD capsules, edibles, can take 30-90 minutes for effects to appear, but tend to last 4-6 hours. Sublingual sprays can take effect in as little as five minutes.

Taken together, Green Relief's price seems to place it in the upper-middle price point of CBD supplements, although we didn't encounter any evidence that paying more will necessarily deliver better relief.

What’s the Bottom Line About Green Relief by Earth Naturals?

We think the most important thing to consider before handing over your money for a CBD product is that, while there are reams of potentially positive evidence surrounding the compound, very few (if any) specific supplements are clinically proven.

Given this, we think it’s ideal to focus on the company producing the supplement, along with its comparative price.

From this perspective, Green Relief comes to us from Earth Naturals, who doesn’t appear to manufacture any other supplements. In fact, the only tangible information we learned about them came from the company’s Crunchbase profile.

You can also find CBD supplements (specifically, hemp seed oil) from third-party manufacturers elsewhere online for as little as $8 at the time of our research.

If you're not satisfied, though, Earth Naturals seems to stand behind Green Relief with an 180-day refund policy. Just keep in mind that you'll have to spend a few bucks to ship your bottle(s) back to the manufacturer.

  • Finally, easy to take relief pills to control the pain

    I have been suffering from severe migraines, fibromyalgia, and polyarthritis for over 20 years. With the prescription drugs that I take which gives me relief, I am only allowed 9 pills per month, which only covers my severe migraine pain. I have been taking Aleve and Ibuprofen, which has ruined my liver and stomach after all these years.

    I read about Green Relief and decided to give it a try since they offer a refund if it doesn't work for you. I love how this works on my pain. After doing experimenting with the best dosage for me, I found that taking 2-3 pills in the morning (depending on pain and stiffness) and 1-2 in the evening works best for me and now allows me to function almost like a normal person again. I am grateful for the fact that there are no side effects, other than dry mouth (3-pill dosage). I get to sleep faster now and sleep through the night, finally. My husband likes the fact that I don't complain about pain, and I am now capable of doing more activities with him.

    I am in my mid 60's and only wish this was on the market 20 years sooner. I will take these for the rest of my life. Great product. Just do some experimenting on what dosage works best for your type of pain before giving up on it. I wish they made it in 20mg strength or they gave you a choice in how many pills per bottle. Just a suggestion for the manufacturer.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Works like a miracle!

    I have been taking Green Relief for about six weeks, and it has helped my back and leg pain tremendously! It seems good to get up in the morning with little to no pain. I've been taking two capsules each morning but will start taking one more each night.

    My neighbor, who has had terrible pain in her hands from carpal tunnel surgery and has trouble sleeping because of the pain, is now sleeping at night. She had been suffering from this pain and little sleep for five years! She now feels rested and is so glad she found Green Relief.

    We want to reorder but cannot find the website.

  • My refund

    I sent a message about two weeks ago to get a refund for $177 and was told it would be credited back to me and it still hasn't been done. Please refund me the money ASAP. I informed them that the card I purchased it with was canceled and I was told as long as it was the same bank it wouldn't be a problem, let me know if I can help to make my refund faster.

    I have severe peripheral neuropathy and was sure hoping this would work, but it didn't.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Finally!

    • Othello, WA,
    • Jul 25, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I'm so glad to have discovered Green Relief! I took so many Aspirins for years that it ate up my stomach and caused severe internal bleeding. After two months in the hospital, 55 units of blood, and a stroke, I got out of there, and my joints still hurt something terrible. The Green Relief is the only thing that I've found that provides a pain-free life without causing other problems. I'll continue to take CBD for the rest of my life if needed. I have been taking three capsules in the morning and two in the evening to get maximum relief. I know that with everyone being different, so are the fight dosages.

    Doesn't work

    I bought six containers of this, and it did nothing for my neuropathy pain. I believe it's a company that preys on desperate people who are in a lot of pain. I caution anyone who looks at this product to avoid the frustration and the very expensive cost and forget about it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Wonderful product

    I am trying to reorder. Green Relief has given me so much relief from a foot and hip inflammation I have suffered for years with. My doc said that if it helps keep it up. Not strong steroids!

    Totally bought in

    • Athens, Tennessee,
    • May 24, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have been dreaming of relief from the pain which I deal with all day, every day. So I totally bought in hoping that the claims of this product might just be the "miracle" I needed. When I purchased a bottle to try, I was prompted to buy in bulk to get the "better" price, which was never to be offered again. Again I bought in, hoping to gain a supply of my "miracle" so I could be pain-free.

    I have tried several bottles of Green Relief and I am yet to experience any relief from my daily pain. I totally bought in, and I totally feel like a fool for having spent so much money for my "miracle" supply, which has done absolutely nothing. Please do not follow my example. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
