Our Story

The Mother-Daughter Team Working Together


Hi, my name is Elizabeth! I am the Founder, Owner & Creator-in-Chief of California Love Topicals and this is my daughter Brooklyn. We both suffer from an incurable, progressive disease called CMT (Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease) which affects approximately 1 in 2,500 people in the United States. It is one of the most common inherited nerve disorders that causes problems with the sensory and motor nerves, the nerves that run from the arms and legs to the spinal cord and brain.

I’ve had 14 surgeries since the age 12 for this condition, resulting in 12 screws in each foot. My daughter had her first surgery at the age 10. We know these are temporary fixes so that we are able to walk with reduced pain, but the pain never truly goes away. CMT causes progressive loss of muscle tissue and touch sensation across various parts of the body, which sadly can sometimes make the pain unbearable.

In 2015 I was given a small amount of hemp cream to apply on the areas in which the pain occurred. Was I skeptical? Yes! Did I have hope? Nope! But I was willing to try anything to make the throbbing and shocks through my legs stop. And I couldn’t believe it. This tiny sample of hemp-infused cream actually worked. The results were almost immediate. I had tears of joy because after living with CMT and daily severe pain, it was finally gone.

The relief lasted up to 4 to 5 hours. There was zero pain and I was functional, instead of feeling loopy from pain medications. It was a true miracle for me. I have tried all remedies and nothing worked, but this one did. Shortly after that I decided that I loved it so much that I wanted to figure out how we could make it ourselves. After six months of research, trial & error we successfully made it! And that’s where “California Love Topicals” came from!

I am a true advocate and believer in Cannabis, HEMP and CBD products as a natural alternative medicine because I know the pain free lifestyle is possible. It worked for both my daughter and I with our treatment for CMT, an incurable disease with pain so bad some days we were unable to get out of bed. We dreaded having to walk barefoot on tile, hardwood floors, or gravel because the pain was excruciating. With the mutation, shoes are our worst nightmare. With the reconstructive foot surgeries, heels were never something I could walk in.

California Love Topicals gave us hope and allowed me to dance as long as I wanted, walk longer distances, hike, and sleep better at night because the throbbing lessened significantly. After many months of research and during that time becoming a scientist/web designer/marketing/social media specialist/female entrepreneur overnight, I became very aware of all the benefits this miracle plant can do, and I also became familiar with the laws that go along with its use. Now I want to pass this goodness ont you.

Disclaimer *This will not cure you, or get you high, or take away pain forever. It’s temporary and fast acting. However, I know our topical works, with no side effects like those associated with the prescription drugs I have had to depend on in the past. No more pain pills. Once applied to the areas in need, the aches and pains are a sign of the past. Now smile. You’re welcome!

P.S. I’d love to hear your thoughts and feel free to leave me a review and help a friend or family member with their pain by buying one for them, too.
