Our Story

I’m Dr. Carl Fieser, co-founder of PainPass, and this is my CBD story. 

I am a double board-certified physician in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation as well as Pain Management. Throughout my training in medical school and residency, I learned that chronic pain is a debilitating, serious condition. Traditional treatments to manage chronic pain like spinal surgeries, injections, and medication management with opioids all have limitations. And when patients feel they are out of options, pain can change how they feel, negatively impacting their relationships with family and friends. They may feel alone and desperate to find solutions.

Patients started coming to me with their stories of what worked for them, including their use of CBD. I realized that there were alternative treatments that could reduce a patient's dependence on opioids or other oral medications with potential side effects. I saw first hand that some of these CBD treatments could help manage their pain, improve their sleep and also their mood.

I was curious to learn more about the power of CBD, how it works, and its overall safety. But I soon realized that many of the CBD products my patients were using weren’t always truthful with their ingredients and their purity. Without any regulation, it was difficult for my patients to find and choose a CBD product that they could rely on. My goal was to create an affordable, effective product that my patients could trust. 

I teamed up with Dr. Kevin Spellman to create topical CBD products that are top of the line, affordable, and safe to use. My medical experience and his expertise of botanical remedies combines to develop new formulas that are designed to help you feel better. Our goal is to not let your pain define you.
