You've got questions, we've got answers..
1. Will Prevail Aid Station SALVation make me high?
No. The CBD (Cannabidiol) in the Aid Station SALVation does not have any "high" effect.
2. Are your products going to make me test positive for a drug test?
Nope. Our Aid Station SALVation topical will NOT test positive on a drug test. CBD is approved by WADA (the World Anti-Doping Agency) With a topical versus an oil, the cannabinoids (THC) aren’t able to penetrate into the bloodstream. Topicals are used to address localized pain and inflammation, but they don’t work systemically.
3. Are your products free from pesticides and chemicals?
YES. We maintain strict quality control through third-party testing of every batch, keeping an eye on potency, pesticides, heavy metals and microbial levels. This ensures that our customers get the cleanest, highest quality and most consistent available. Our test results are always available upon request.
4. What IS hemp oil?
Our phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil is extracted using state of the art, ultra clean CO2 extraction. Hemp oil is proving to have enormous therapeutic potential, and is causing quite a buzz among scientists, health professionals, and medical marijuana patients who are using hemp oil to address a wide range of conditions – chronic pain, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more. Extensive preclinical research and some clinical studies have shown that hemp oil has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antidepressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral and neuroprotective qualities.
5. What if your product just doesn't work for me?
We offer a 30-day money back guarantee. We will send a package label to your email that you can print out, place on the same package you received your product in, and ship back to us at no cost to you. Once we’ve received the returned product, a refund will be issued and an email will be sent to notify you of that transaction.
6. Can your product be shipped to all 50 states?
Yep! Unlike THC containing products, ours is legal to ship to you no matter what state you are in.
7. Is your product really a good value?
When shopping for hemp oil products, always look at the total milligram content and the cost per mg. Prevail's Aid Station SALVation packs 1,000mg of CBD into our strong and mighty 2 oz. salve stick, which is why it is so effective. Used moderately, the product should last 1 person approximately 45+ days.
8. How much should I apply?
Most of our product users rub the salve stick directly on the pain point areas, then gently rub it in further with their fingers to maximize the absorption. You should see a slight "shiny" layer over your skin, and that's the sign that you've applied the right amount. Less is often more. This stuff is powerful and potent!
9. How long will it take for me to feel the effects of the topical?
It varies. Because every single user is different as well as the levels of pain they are facing, it varies. We have heard users report feeling the effects of Prevail in as little as 5 minutes, whereas other users apply it before bed and notice a significant difference the following morning. We encourage you to test and measure what works for you.
10. I took a pledge to race and perform "clean." Will taking this product mean that I am jeopardizing my pledge?
No. Since CBD is approved by WADA for athletic use and recovery, you are not in jeopardy of racing "unclean." We view our product as a completely natural and safe anti-inflammatory that can be used as an alternative to NSAID's that have hazardous side effects.
11. Is Prevail going to fix ALL the pain I have from running?
Probably not! We strongly encourage you to do the other practices that help you in being the best runner possible. Icing, foam rolling, yoga, stretching, getting enough sleep, elevating your legs, massage, and eating a healthy diet. Prevail is not the "miracle" or "cure-all," but if used properly may greatly enhance your running experience!
12. I'm interested in your brand ambassador program, how do I apply?

We hand select each ambassador by doing a phone consult to ensure that it's a mutual fit with our mission. We'd be honored to have you apply!
13. I'm interested in attending one of your trail running retreats or in being a sponsor, how to I sign up?
Sweet! We'd love to have you if space allows! We cap the trail running retreats at about 12 people in order to create a hand-on, intimate, personalized experience. Click on "products" above, then on the "Trail Running Retreat" for details and sign up info on the next one!
14. Are your products organic?
With that said, it's currently not possible to obtain organic certification for hemp, but we use organic farming practices and no pesticides ever on our small hemp farm in Colorado.
15. Are your products tested on animals?
Never. All of our ingredients are vegan except for beeswax, which is used to bind our salve for firmness and keep it from melting in high heat.
