 The following endorsement is unsolicited.  This cranky old man has received no remuneration for this post.

For 15 years I have had an arthritic hip.  It was not medically diagnosed, so maybe it was something else, after all, I am not a doctor.  However, I am also not a meteorologist but I can tell when it is raining…so…I think the condition was arthritis.

My hip issue was not debilitating, but I could not run, sometimes walked with a limp and especially noticed it when walking up or down stairs.  I learned to live with it.  I could still play golf and bowl, I seldom needed to run anywhere and, so I limped going up and down stairs not a big deal.

About one year ago, Mrs. C saw an add for a pain relief product, “Hempvana.” Mrs. C will purchase just about anything she sees on TV.  UPS has our address on speed dial.  Most of the stuff she buys is crap.  Sometimes she finds a winner.

I tried the Hempvana.  I applied it several times a day for a week.  Then I stopped.  I stopped because I didn’t think about it.  I didn’t think about it because my hip never bothered me.  I did not limp.  I could go up and down stairs without issue and if chased by a bear, I think I could even run.

Why it is called HEMPvana I am not sure.  Hemp does not seem to be the major ingredient.  Applied topically it does not give you a “Mary Jane high” it just makes pain disappear.

My hip is basically cured.  Sometimes I use it on my neck and I have one knuckle and a big toe that is arthritic…works for them as well.

I assume the stuff either works or it provides a placebo effect.  Either way, who cares.

I have since mentioned it to several friends who complained about similar aches and pains.  My son, who is a physical fitness teacher and health fanatic, complained about a shoulder problem. 

He tried the stuff.

Three times a day for a week.  Problem gone!

Best I can tell the stuff is just a topical application of aspirin that gets to the joint.  Who knows…it works for me.

As several people upon my recommendation have found relief from joint pain, I am offering this endorsement as a public service.

Friends who have spent lots of money on chiropractors and physical therapists have found real relief from this stuff.

For $10 a jar it couldn’t hurt.  It is sold all over, I think Mrs. C got it at Walgreens.

If you try the stuff and it doesn't work, sorry I may have cost you $10.

If you try the stuff and it works; You're welcome!




  1. I just ordered this. I have the same hurting hip.

    Have a fabulous day and week. ☺

  2. well you may wish to get a piece of the action - I just ordered it to try. I have some fingers and a hip that need this. Thx

  3. Hick has the same hip, too. I am commanding him to look for this product the next time he's in Walgreens. My knees would also like to give it a whirl.

  4. I'm going out tomorrow and getting it. I've seen it. Both the husband and I could use it. Thanks for the cranky tip.

  5. We do not have Hempvana but use another type of Hemp roll on and it really does work. Thanks for promoting this, Joe, and glad you are better!

  6. So glad Mrs. C and Hempvana could put you right again. I trust you and if my chiropractor hadn't cured my aching hips a few years ago, I'd head for the store right now. But I will file it in my memory banks should the pain come back. Nothing a like first hand positive review.

  7. It's wonderful to find an OTC that works, i'm sure my knees will thank you once i go get some.

  8. I'm glad you found something that works, relief from constant pain is a wonderful thing.

  9. Hey, thanks! I could use that on my knee, see if it helps. I spend more than $10 on other crap that doesn’t do anything!
