** Due to large demand, the application for the Cold Rub form is now closed. Thank you to all our healthcare workers for everything you're doing for the community! **

March 24, 2020 -- ​As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise in the United States, Populum CBD wanted to be able to help support the ongoing efforts of their local healthcare communities. On May 24, they announced they would be giving away free Cold Therapy Hemp Rubs to healthcare workers on the frontlines helping to treat and fight the virus.

"To all healthcare employees, thank you for your devotion to the care of others and for all you're doing to keep us safe during this pandemic," said Greg Parker, founder of Populum. "Even though we are a small business, we wanted to do something to give back to those who are putting their lives at risk for the care of others."

As a small token of Populum's appreciation, Populum chose to give away ​Cold Therapy Hemp Rub​ at no cost. Released in 2017, the topical rub helps to soothe and relieve sore muscles and joints. To redeem a free cold rub, Populum asks healthcare workers to complete ​a simple online form​ to provide their shipping information. Populum will then ship the product directly to their door.

"We chose to donate the Cold Therapy Hemp Rub because we thought healthcare workers would find this product the most beneficial," said Caitlin March, Director of Marketing at Populum. "The rub provides instant relief for sore muscles and will hopefully provide some comfort to those who are working long hours on their feet."

Populum was founded in Tempe, AZ. Populum, which hit $2.5M last year, has expanded to a ten-person team with offices in Tempe, AZ and Omaha, NE, and is considered a leading brand in the CBD space after gaining recognition for its transparency, 100% U.S.-based sourcing and risk-free trial.

Populum's involvement in the community spans beyond the hemp industry as well, as they donate company money to local charities. Most recently, Populum donated to Teen

Lifeline, an Arizona-based nonprofit that helps teens cope with suicidal thoughts and depression, and Cool Cats AZ, a Phoenix-based nonprofit focused on helping animals that are often overlooked.

"This brand goes beyond us -- it's about supporting our partners, communities and customers," said Park. "Now more, than ever, it's important that we all do what we can to help support one another."
