Frequently Asked Questions
If CM8 is so effective, why isn’t it in every pain medication?
Cetyl Myristoleate is very expensive to make and the ingredients that blend to make CM8 are relatively scarce. This affects both traditional pain remedy markets.
- Drug companies- The big Drug Companies are not interested in manufacturing a product unless they can enjoy “exclusivity” of ingredients to control the pricing of the drug. The ingredients of CetylMyristoleate are found in nature, and as an all-natural compound, they could not be granted a “product” patent, which meant that there would not be any exclusivity, thus eliminating the prospects of huge profits.
- All Natural Supplements- It costs about 20 times as much to produce Cetyl Myristoleate as it does Glucosamine. By adding CM8 to their product, any existing Glucosamine-based remedies would have to increase their price substantially or accept a tremendously reduced profit margin.
Who produces Cetyl Myristoleate and where is it made?
CM8 is produced in both Canada and the United States, by the family of the late Dr. Harry Diehl.
I’d like to start taking Cetyl Myristoleate?
Where can I obtain Cetyl Myristoleate?
Is all CM8 authentic and genuine? Are there knockoffs I should be aware of?
Is CM8 found in any other products?
What is the molecular formula of cetyl myristoleate?
It is C3OH58O2 and its molecular mass is 450.78 g/mol.
How come I’ve never heard of CM8 until now?
Does CM8 have any side effects or cause a reaction to any other medications?
Is cetyl myristoleate found in nature?
Yes, Cetyl Myristoleate is now known to exist in sperm whale oil and in a small gland in the male beaver. Since there is hardly a worldwide supply from these very limited natural sources, part of Dr. Diehl’s success was in developing a method for making Cetyl Myristoleate in the lab by the esterification of myristoleic acid.
