A Real Time Pain Relief Method That Works
Little is worse than the feeling of pain. Luckily, for most people, it’s temporary, but for those suffering from chronic illness, it can be constant which makes finding real-time pain relief crucial. Here, we discuss one method that has been proven effective.
The Answer is Cannabis
Cannabis is a plant that has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. The most well-known compound in cannabis is THC, responsible for the plant’s psychoactive effects. With that said, cannabis also contains CBD which has become increasingly popular as an all-natural alternative to conventional medicine in recent years.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that has been shown to provide relief from various conditions such as anxiety, pain, and insomnia. Research has shown that CBD can help manage the symptoms of conditions like autism and epilepsy and other neurological disorders.
How It Works
While the exact mechanism by which CBD works is still being studied, research has shown that CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, the system that helps regulate various functions of the body, including mood, appetite, pain and inflammation. Success has been shown using edibles, oils, and lotions to provide relief from conditions like inflammation, pain, anxiety, and depression.
Some of the more notable illnesses that CBD can help include:
1. CBD for Cancer
The National Cancer Institute has pointed to cannabis to help with symptom management. This can be the pain associated with cancer or the side effects that come from intensive treatments like chemotherapy. Some specific benefits listed include:
- Antiemetic effects
- Appetite stimulation
- Pain relief
- Improved sleep
2. CBD for Migraines
CBD has shown promise in helping to alleviate symptoms of migraines by interacting with the body’s pain receptors. It’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects reduce the frequency and severity of migraines by decreasing inflammation and protecting nerve cells.
3. CBD for Chronic Pain
As mentioned above, it’s thought that CBD interacts with a core component of the endocannabinoid receptors in your brain and immune system. The CBD drives the receptors to create a response in the cells they are attached to often producing anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. This can help anything from arthritis, neuropathy, and back pain with minimal (if any) side effects.
Why CBD is a Great Option
According to many researchers the full benefits of CBD have not yet been realized. With that said, the most notable advantages are that CBD does not cause intoxication or dependence. This is especially important during the opioid epidemic that claimed more than 75,000 deaths in 2021 alone.
Additionally, CBD is accessible and less costly than pain-relieving alternatives. It all comes down to where you get CBD products.
