Guilderland Female Family-Owned Business The RAD SOAP CO. Unveils Historic New Line Of Treatments 


GUILDERLAND, N.Y. — The use of legal hemp-derived CBD products is sweeping the nation, and a local female family-owned business is bringing the holistic treatments to Guilderland and the Capital Region for the first time. The RAD SOAP CO. is pleased to unveil its new line of CBD infused relief creams, sleep creams and tinctures at its Stuyvesant Plaza store. Designed to be utilized by everyone from senior citizens to young athletes, RAD CBD products provide the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without delivering the "high" associated with marijuana. RAD SOAP is proud to continue its reputation of locally made innovative wellness products and introduce customers to a worldwide trend that is making a positive impact on countless lives. They are available both in Guilderland and at


CBD - or cannabidiol - is a naturally occurring compound of the cannabis plant. The non-psychoactive chemical compound is derived from hemp and is legal across the United States. CBD is a safe and non-addictive treatment for pain, anxiety and depression and neurological disorders. It has also been shown to treat drug addiction, and is a vastly safer alternative to opioids and narcotics. The market for CBD wellness products is exploding across the country, with annual sales soon expected to hit $20 billion. However, the Capital Region has largely been late to awaken to its holistic benefits, until now. The RAD SOAP CO.’s new line of locally manufactured CBD products is filling that void, and introducing customers to a health-care and self-care revolution.


RAD’s Relief Cream uses all natural ingredients to create a highly moisturizing, fast absorbing treatment for aches, pains and bruising. RAD’s Sleep Cream combines CBD with melatonin and lavender extracts for luxurious relaxation. RAD CBD Full Spectrum Extract Tincture is quickly absorbed into the body to infuse your daily routine with the restorative qualities of cannabidiol. All RAD CBD products are extracted from hemp using the state of the art vapor distillation technique. This advanced method preserves the essential oils found in the plant that enhance the properties of the CBD oil.


The RAD SOAP CO. is a labor of love founded by Sue Kerber in 2009. Sue started her business in her kitchen while searching for a natural remedy to treat her son’s eczema. Her passion for blending natural ingredients to create holistic skin care products has led her to incorporate the finest hemp extracts into RAD’s CBD line to promote wellness for customers who may be looking to safely alleviate severe pain, or even just improve their sleep. 


“I strongly believe in the restorative powers of CBD products,” says Kerber. “These tinctures and creams can sooth aches and pains across the whole body while reducing anxiety, nausea and inflammation. They are a safe alternative to addictive pain killers. Customers and family members alike have told me they feel energized by RAD’s new line. My philosophy at The RAD SOAP CO. is if my family won’t use it, then we won’t sell it. This is a powerful product with a purpose.”
