Dr. Andrew Kerklaan 

Founder, Dr. Kerklaan Therapeutics

Dr. Andrew Kerklaan, DC has more than 20 years of experience at the pulse of the global health and wellness industry. He completed his studies in Toronto, Canada and launched his career in London, England at a prestigious clinic where his patients included rock stars and royalty.

Five years later, Dr. Kerklaan returned to his hometown of Montreal determined to bring the best in integrative health care to his own community. His thriving practice provides expert treatment for a wide range of patients and conditions, with a focus on health, wellness, and pain management. While caring for thousands of patients for nearly a quarter-century, Dr. Kerklaan continually marvelled at the body’s own natural ability to heal. This observation led to the doctor's deeply-held philosophy — that the best approach to optimum health is most often a natural, non-invasive one. This belief, along with his patients' urgent search for natural pain solutions, inspired Dr. Kerklaan to explore the benefits of one of nature's first medicines: cannabinoids.

Convinced of the need for trusted products that deliver cannabinoid-rich relief without the feeling of being high, Dr. Kerklaan worked in tandem with leading biochemists to develop a breakthrough in topical formulas. The result is a robust product line that is doctor-designed, patient approved and rigorously tested by the top labs in Canada and the USA. Dr. Kerklaan Therapeutics line provides unparalleled pain relief plus a wellspring of soothing botanical benefits available in Pain, PMS, Sleep and Skin. Dr. Kerklaan has been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine, Men’s Health Magazine, Huffington Post, Men’s Journal, The Street, FHM, Equities, MindBodyGreen among others.
