Cannabidiol as pain relief

How CBD help with pain…

CBD, one of the many different components of the cannabis plant, is highly regarded for its therapeutic properties. Those who use it regularly report that it helps them reduce their anxiety, stress levels, sleep disorders, and pain relief

CBD is just one more cannabinoid from a growing list of 100+ of which are identified and found within the cannabis plant. Perhaps the most famous among which is THC, the psychoactive component found in weed responsible for the initial weed hype in the 1960s and equally responsible for its vilification in the 1970s.

CBD can be found in cannabis plants but is found in larger quantities within the non-psychoactive version of the cannabis plant; ‘Hemp’. Hemp in itself contains less than 0.3% of THC content, reason as to why its harvest and use is legal in all 50 States across the U.S.

The effects of CBD on the body working with our endocannabinoid system can vary and are largely dependent on the subject’s specific case. As you know, everybody deals with different conditions and symptoms. Effects and properties recorded anecdotally among CBD users include

  • anticonvulsant,
  • antiemetic,
  • antioxidant,
  • anxiolytic/antidepressant,
  • anti-inflammatory,
  • positive effects associated with pain management

Pain is divided into four major types:

  1. Nociceptive Pain: Resulting from tissue injury; like arthritis pain, mechanical pain, or post-surgical pain
  2. Inflammatory Pain: Any inflammation caused by a response of the body’s immune system
  3. Neuropathic Pain: Pain caused by nerve irritation
  4. Functional Pain: This type of pain doesn’t have an obvious origin but includes conditions like IBS and Fibromyalgia

CBD has been found to help with all these types of pain responses in different levels. When it comes to nociceptive pain, the most efficient way of treating focused areas of the body are oils and salves made with CBD extract that can attack a specific area of the body.

CBD shows a lot of potential as an alternative aid in pain relief. Anecdotal evidence has been recorded from frequent and new users that suggest the substance can be beneficial to patients suffering from chronic pain. It’s necessary to point out that conclusive evidence is not available with today’s existing research, but anecdotal evidence is promising.

CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. A feature that has made it increasingly coveted among users that would like to benefit from its anti-inflammatory and pain suppressing effects without the need of a body and mind impairing feeling.
