If you have pain, current research is showing that CBD may help you.
There is never a good time to be in pain. But thankfully right now, if you are in pain, there is a LOT of research being done regarding CBD and its ability to alleviate pain. Current evidence shows CBD is a non-toxic, plant-based, and natural way to supplement your pain management plan. Evidence showing positive outcomes is only increasing. There is very good reason to have hope for relief using CBD in pain management.
There are currently twelve research trials going on that are investigating how CBD works on different kinds of pain from coronavirus infections, panic attacks, topical CBD on joint arthritis and oral CBD for knee osteoarthritis, and CBD’s effect on endometriosis pain. (See here: 2021 Cannabidiol (CBD) Clinical Trials and Research (policylab.us))
These are all NEW studies happening right now and we look forward to the results. We fully expect them to be similar to previous studies:
“Since the early 2000s, clinical trials involving CBD for the treatment of chronic pain have shown effects ranging from placebo-equivalent to highly effective; many of these studies have been well-designed randomized, double-blinded, and placebo-controlled. In a mixed cohort of patients suffering from intractable pain due to multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, brachial plexus injury, and limb amputation, CBD treatment significantly reduced pain on a visual analog scale (Wade et al., 2003).” (A Balanced Approach for Cannabidiol Use in Chronic Pain (nih.gov))
This is great news for people looking to supplement their pain management plans or simply manage their pain with natural alternatives.
Research is helping scientists to better understand pain & pain treatments.
Pain is more than just a physical sensation. There are actual pain receptors called “nociceptors” throughout the body. These receptors “tell” your brain what’s wrong. Funnily enough, there are NONE in the brain. Think about that. There are receptors ALL OVER YOUR BODY to help us discover pain. But there are NONE in the brain. How do we get migraines? It’s a mystery even to top doctors in the world.
Sometimes our brains interpret the signals correctly, and sometimes the brain’s interpretation goes a bit haywire. The brain can simply “get the message wrong”. That doesn’t make the pain any less real. In fact, the message or the perception of pain is as important as the injury, event, or disease that is causing the pain.
What’s interesting about CBD is that it works both throughout the entire body AND in the brain. There are receptors on every major organ as well as in our brains. Because our brain makes CBD, we can use the plant-CBD just as readily as what we make ourselves. Naturally, the body uses CBD to “calm down” systems and help optimize body function, despite any pain.
Better understanding how to treat pain + current trials with CBD = Hope.
We are encouraged by the feedback we receive from physicians and physical therapists that we work with daily. We have seen firsthand how CBD can intercept pain-feedback-loops to improve pain management outcomes.
We are certain that as research continues, even more evidence will come to light supporting daily use of CBD in chronic and acute pain management. Current evidence shows CBD is a non-toxic, plant-based, and natural way to supplement your pain management plan.
While there is no good time to be in pain, if you are in pain, it’s a good time to have hope for relief using CBD in pain management.
Feel Better. Do Better. Be Better.
