The CobraZol Story

 CobraZol was founded in 2013 with the idea that pain shouldn't have to be managed with opiate pain killers, or OTC medicines such as aspirin or ibuprofen. Harnessing the power of nature's most powerful pain reducing analgesics such as capsaicin, arnica, and curcumin, and three snake venoms (the Indian Cobra, the Mojave Rattlesnake and the South American Bushmaster), CobraZol was created to fight chronic muscle pain, neuralgia, and relieve achy joints associated with arthritis. 


Our decision to use neurotoxic snake venoms, originated from homeopathic practices used since the late 1800’s, and earlier in both Chinese and Indian Ayurveda medicine. Each venom works by targeting receptors on nerve cells. These receptors are found in nerves outside the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and they are also found on cells of the immune system. Specialized proteins unique to each venom, block the action of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, a major stimulating neurotransmitter in the nervous system and activator of the inflammatory pathways. As a result, the pain and inflammation pathways are temporarily shut off. In some clinical studies, Indian Cobra Venom has shown to provide prolonged chronic muscle pain, neuralgia and joint pain relief.


By Harnessing the power of nature, we are proud to bring you a patented pain relieving product that you can finally feel good about. Clinically tested, non-addictive, and body safe (unlike the repeated use of OTC drugs, or any use of synthetic opioids), CobraZol was created with you in mind.


Meet Founder and CEO Bill Carlson

I was brought up in a well-traveled, natural, nutrition and health focused family in rural Virginia.  I had a thirst for knowledge and a strong interest in natural health, science, biology and environmental sustainability.

Even as a teenager my brother and I would be in the high school science lab or in our own home built laboratory making concoctions of various sorts. As my professional career progressed in another scientific field (computers), I still found myself drawn to research and naturally solving my own and others' skin problems through homeopathic practice.

As I spent time in places such as Turkey, France, China, Japan, and South/Central America, I noticed a similar trend in each country: natural and herbal remedies were the norm, not the exception. I started to deeply study the possibilities of using herbal plant medicine on common skin and health conditions from what I had learned abroad.
