More and more people are turning to CBD to treat their pain whether acute or chronic. CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of over 100 chemical compounds called cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-psychoactive and perfectly legal to use in most countries including the UK. CBD can be applied topically or consumed orally.
The human body has an endocannabinoid system that plays a regulatory role, impacting our brain, endocrine, and immune systems. CBD interacts naturally with the endocannabinoid system creating the desired analgesic effect, but without the addictive or disruptive side-effects of opioids. Common conditions treated with CBD include anxiety, arthritis, cancer, inflammation, seizures, and more.
Chronic pain can be nociceptive or neuropathic. Nociceptive pain is the most common and is caused by tissue damage and inflammation. It’s characterized by throbbing, aching, and sharp pain. Neuropathic pain is caused by damage to the nervous system and can feel like stabbing, burning, or tingling pain. Studies on cannabinoids and pain demonstrate that CBD can treat both types of pain.
A Harvard-led systematic review of 28 studies examining the efficacy of cannabinoids and especially CBD to treat pain and other medical issues concluded that their use for chronic pain, neuropathic pain, and spasticity due to multiple sclerosis is supported by high-quality evidence. The number of testimonies from people who have successfully used CBD to treat their pain is increasing every day.
If you suffer from debilitating pain or know someone who does, try using or suggesting CBD Oil as a food supplement, it might just improve someone’s quality of life.
