With the increased awareness of the dangers of opioid abuse, medical professionals and pain sufferers are actively searching for additional remedies that do not carry the potentially dangerous characteristics of opioids.
Cannabis has been known and used for medicinal purposes for millennia, and was a recognized pharmaceutical during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Legislation in the early 20th century criminalized cannabis due to its psychoactive properties and abuse potential.
Recent research and changes in legislation have opened the potential of cannabis-derived compounds for the relief of specific symptoms, namely for pain, stress, and inflammation. Commercial CBD compounds for chronic pain relief are tightly regulated and may only contain less than 0.3% of THC (the psychoactive compound that is responsible for the feeling of being “high”).
Everyone has an Endocannabinoid system in their body. This is a system of receptors that respond to the presence of a variety of compounds from both inside and outside of the body. Endocannabinoids are produced as needed within the body and contribute to the regulation of a range of bodily functions such as sleep, appetite, metabolism, and motor control. It is also partially responsible for the management of stress, inflammation, and the function of muscle, skin and nerves. In the event of injury or stress, it is believed that the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is largely responsible for returning balance to the body. The introduction of cannabis-based compounds such as Cannabidiol (CBD) is believed to assist in this process.
When exploring CBD oil for chronic pain relief, consider full-spectrum CBD products. There are nearly 100 identified compounds in cannabis-derived products, each with different properties. The cumulative, combined effect of these compounds within the body is known as the Entourage Effect.
There is a growing body of research examining the efficacy of CBD specifically for cancer and arthritis pain. According to a study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information Rats with laboratory-induced arthritis responded positively to a topical application of CBD oil. There was a reduction in inflammation and pain in the affected joints. This suggests possible positive results in humans.
In the journal Frontiers in Pharmacology a study discussed how despite the need for additional research, CBD was effective in contributing to pain relief in specific settings.
When considering CBD products, speak with a trusted professional and insist on products that are laboratory-tested and free of pesticides.
