Hempvana Pain Relief Review: Does It Work?

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Feb 8, 2019

Hempvana is a topical cream designed to deliver fast-acting pain relief when you need it most.

The product is infused with oil from cannabis sativa seeds. It’s important to note that Hempvana does not include any actual THC, which is the psychoactive compound found in recreational cannabis. It also doesn’t include any CBD, which is another chemical found within cannabis that is known for its purported medicinal uses.

The makers of Hempvana say the cream’s ideal use is for when you first wake up in the morning, just after finishing an exercise, or any other time that you tend to experience pain in your body. They mention that using the cream consistently is a great way to maintain a high level of activity while avoiding the expense and potential addictiveness of conventional over-the-counter and prescription medications.

Now that we’ve settled the issue of what Hempvana is at-a-glance, let’s take a look at how it is supposed to provide fast-acting pain and stiffness relief all over your body.

How Does Hempvana Work to Relieve Pain?

The primary claim underpinning Hempvana is that it can work to effectively block nerve transmissions that cause pain, stiffness and swelling. It can be used anywhere on the body that you are experiencing these symptoms, and the manufacturer suggests that it applies easily, absorbs into the skin quickly, and has no lasting “medicine-like” odor.

The makers of Hempvana also state that it utilizes a “proven active ingredient cleared by the FDA,” alongside oils from the seeds of the cannabis sativa plant.

This additional ingredient was not directly listed on the website as of this writing (more on this below in the ingredients section). Before going any further, we need to establish the basics; is it scientifically plausible that a product containing oils from the cannabis sativa plant would be able to provide the pain-relieving benefits described by the makers of Hempvana?

Are Oils Derived from Cannabis Sativa Plants Capable of Reducing Pain?

Cannabis-related products have been in the news over the past few years, particularly in relation to their potential as a natural, alternative pain relief solution.

That said, the vast majority of these seem to center around the CBD found within the plant itself, not simply the hemp oil. According to Healthline, CBD shows promise for pain relief, especially when it comes to arthritis and multiple sclerosis (MS). Despite this, they said, more human trials are needed to gain a solid understanding of just how effective it may be.

During our research, we encountered no specific scientific evidence that hemp oil containing no CBD or THC could consistently reduce pain, inflammation, swelling, or stiffness, as the makers of Hempvana suggest.

Hempvana Ingredients and Possible Side Effects

As of this writing, there was no section on the Hempvana website detailing all of the active ingredients found within the product.

We reached out to customer service for clarification. They were unable to provide a more specific list of active ingredients. In the product’s commercial, the active ingredient trolamine salicylate is mentioned, though it is not clear how much of this substance is actually included in Hempvana.

One study found that trolamine salicylate was able to provide short-term pain reduction in individuals suffering from osteoarthritis in the hand when used topically.

No major side effects were reported. That said, in a similar study related to osteoarthritis of the knee, the substance was no more effective than a placebo. According to a Harvard Medical School report, there is not enough substantive evidence that this ingredient can provide consistent pain relief when applied topically.

Without knowing exactly what other active ingredients may be in Hempvana, it isn’t possible to say with certainty whether not it will be effective for you. It also means that it’s difficult to say that you will (or will not) experience any side effects when using the cream on your skin. We’d recommend that consumers consider this carefully before making a purchase.

Hempvana Pricing and Return Policy

As of this writing, Hempvana was available exclusively from the manufacturer’s website and phone hotlines. The product comes in two separate quantities; a single order or a special “double offer” promotion. Here is how that breaks down:

  • Single order: $19.99 + $5 S&H
  • Two Pack: $29.98 + $5 S&H
  • Three Pack: $39.98 with free shipping

The product is also available on Amazon, Walgreens, and CVS for $19.99.

As for the return policy, the terms listed on the product’s website state that each order includes a 30-day money-back guarantee. That said, it also lists that consumable items (or items that can be diminished) are not eligible for returns once they have been opened. We feel this is important to consider when deciding whether or not to make a purchase, as they won’t accept a return for an opened jar of cream.

As a final note, you will be required to pay any fees associated with getting an unopened product back to the manufacturer, should you decide to return it within the 30-day window.

The Bottom Line

Let’s cut to the chase; if you are currently experiencing pain, stiffness, inflammation, or swelling, can Hempvana truly make a difference for you? Let’s review what we’ve learned.

We found that Hempvana does not contain THC or CBD, two of the more commonly-cited ingredients found in the cannabis sativa plant for their alleged pain-relieving qualities. We also didn’t encounter any substantive evidence during our research that the oils of the hemp plant alone could provide any significant pain relief when applied to the skin topically.

Further, the manufacturer’s customer service department was unable to provide us with a full and complete list of active ingredients used within Hempvana.

The only ingredient mentioned in the commercial, trolamine salicylate, has some clinical evidence supporting its ability to provide minor short-term pain relief when applied topically but other sources have shown this connection remains to be consistently proven.

If you’d like to give the product a shot, remember to keep in mind that both the Hempvana and Hempvana Gold creams cannot be returned once they have been opened, according to the terms and conditions listed on the main website. If you wish to try the product out on a one-time basis and find that it isn’t for you in the end, you will be out $19.99 (or $29.98 for the double offer).

  • It works for me!

    I had a total knee replacement back in July 2018. I am just getting the feeling back in my knee and it's been pretty stiff. This past Saturday it was raining and my knee was unbearable! I was going to order the buy one get one free, but I saw it in Walmart, so I said before I do that let me get it and see how it works. I went in and got it and went to my car and put it on. By the time I got out of the parking lot, the stiffness was GONE! I had two elderly ladies in the car with me and one was complaining about neck pain. I told her to try it and she as well stated that her neck pain was gone. I had a coworker try it yesterday on her back and she stated she no longer was hurting. I am a believer!

    I was a little skeptical and wasn't sure I wasn't wasting my money on another "seen on TV" product. I have had Rotor Cuff surgeries on both shoulders and still experience pain that nothing else I have tried came close to giving me any relief. That is until I tried Hempvana Pain Cream. Within a couple of minutes of applying it to my shoulders, the pain was completely gone.

    My wife has lower back pain so she tried it and within a couple of minutes, the pain was gone. And it stayed gone for hours. We both apply it when needed, but don't have to more than a couple of times to get complete pain relief. We are impressed and grateful, to say the least!

    My husband fell and hurt his back. He went to the doctor and was prescribed several medications, that did nothing to stop the pain or correct the problem. As a last resort, I saw this on TV and I said, let's give it a try. After just one treatment, he felt better, and after using it for a week, he is out of pain, with NO side effects! This is the real deal people, it works!

    While this product works for me, it may not work for everyone. I figured for the price it was worth a try. The first time I used it my back pain was GONE. I told a friend of mine about the product and gave her a small amount. We were at a dance and she went into the ladies room and applied it to her back. When she came out she said, "I no longer have the pain". She had been complaining about back pain for years. I have suggested to others about Hempvana. Some were reluctant to try and my reply is "You don't know if it works until you try it". You have nothing to lose. Another friend said he could not use it because of TCH. He is a CDL driver and gets tested for drugs. Now I can let him know this is not an issue because it does not contain TCH.

    I just want to say it works. You don't have to belive me, it takes the pain away fast. I have 4 to make sure I have it on hand. I am a veteran with pain from working in the cold. Four years in the Coast Guard and 30 years in the Merchant Marines on board ships. You take a beating working the seas and oceans, so Hempvana is a Godsend to me and my wife. She was in an auto accident some years back and she asks for it quickly when she is in pain. Thanks Hempvana for your discovery.

  • Hempvana

    I am 67 years old. I am a believer and I am a skeptic. I have pain in my arm from an injury. Also arthritis in my knee. I bought Hempvana for my arm pain. It worked. I put it on sometimes during the day, and right before I go to bed. It takes the pain away immediately and helps me to go to sleep. I have a lot of pain in my knee. I take shots for this. But I find that the creme does take the edge off of my knee pain. Hempvana works enough for me to continue buying it and using it. And to take time to write a positive review about it. I have recommended it to others.

  • I bought at Walgreen, I suffer from sciatica nerve and for 3 months pain.

    I was so glad that my daughter told me about this. The tingling was the worse part and waiting for the MRI. Now at least I can drive and my anxiety and depression are not so bad. I am 72 and an extreme sports nut. I felt like I cried all the time and was afraid and worried. I am more confident and today I moved furniture but did so slowly with no lifting. I use it twice a day morning and evening. So glad I bought it, it was pricey and thought of it gives me relief.

  • Miracle!

    I have degenerative joint disease, I have tried so many different things, including major pain killers from pain management doctors. Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, has ever worked for me...until now. This is a true miracle for me. It relieved my pain instantly. Being that I have tried everything under the sun I never would have bought it on my own but I tried my mom's and I couldn't believe how quickly and well it worked. I was definitely not expecting that! I am so happy to be pain-free again! I have to apply it 2 or 3 times a day but that's ok, this has given results that even oxycodone and oxycontin couldn't. I will be stocking up!

  • Awesome

    It's awesome, put it on my lower back and within 10 minutes my pain was somewhat more tolerable. I've been using this now for about 6 months, it has truly made a difference in my life, even though the relief is short term, I'll say about 3 to 5 hours it last, I totally agree with the old saying (what good for the goose isn't always good for the gander), different strokes for different folks. I love this product and will continue to purchase it...I give it 4 stars.

  • Worked for me!

    I got online to order more Hempvana because it works so well for me, although not on all kinds of pain. I had a knee strain from falling on the ice, and Hempvana is the only cream that gave me enough relief to allow me to fall asleep at night. I also had one of those creams that smells strongly of menthol or something similar, and it did nothing but open my sinuses (lol). However, I also have chronic right hip pain, and Hempvana didn't do much for that. Anyway, I now have a neck strain and am looking to buy more. I think it's worth a try.

  • Overpriced Aspercreme

    • By Timothy B.,

    • Verified Reviewer

    Does it work? Discounting any placebo effect from people thinking it contains THC or CBD (it doesn't), it most likely works exactly as well as Aspercreme. They both are 10% Trolamine salicylate skin cremes. One is $20 for a little jar on TV. The other is $5 at Walmart.

    Solid 3 stars for the actual product, since it's "just average," especially compared to its competitors that are pretty much identical. The company, however, seems less reputable, perhaps 2 stars.

    Also, on TV this same company, Hempvana, sells a back brace that is made at least in part with hemp fiber fabric. It is supposed to cure your aching back and their advertising implies that the hemp is somehow therapeutic (it's not). Perhaps the brace helps, but the hemp fibers do nothing extra.

    This seems like a scam company trying to rip off old people by hyping the most recent miracle cure-all plant du jour (anything and everything hemp). Perhaps it is best to avoid them entirely.

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