CBD Oil For Pain Management
Experiencing pain is absolutely natural - it’s simply your body’s signalling mechanism that tells your brain to pay attention. While some pain can be very useful, other times pain can be debilitating and counter productive.
When experiencing pain we often go for pharmaceutical drugs which do help but have side effects like being toxic for your liver, irritating to your stomach or having addictive properties. One of the major side effects on these drugs is that sometimes they work too well and completely numb pain so you don’t feel if you are causing further damage to your body.
Using CBD oil as a natural pain reliever on the other hand can be an effective treatment without major side effects like pharmaceutical drugs.
First of all CBD oil is analgesic which means it will almost immediately reduce pain (if taken sublingual) and it works for up to 8 hours. Second, CBD oil has anti-inflammatory properties which doesn’t just help decrease pain short term but also long term.
CBD interacts with the two main cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2, which regulate the release of neurotransmitter and central nervous system immune cells to manage pain levels.
CBD have been found effective at lowering pain levels associated with:
Headaches and migraines
Other acute pain and chronic pain conditions
Studies have shown that a regular CBD use for the management of pain is safe and effective.
