CBD for Pain Management: What Do People Say

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol is a substance in the Cannabis sativa plant. More than 80 synthetic substances, known as cannabinoids, have been recognized in the Cannabis sativa plant. While delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most active ingredient in marijuana, Cannabidiol, or CBD, is derived from hemp, which contains, modest quantities of THC. The 2018 Farm Bill made it lawful to sell hemp and hemp items in the U.S. Yet, that doesn't imply that all products derived from hemp are legal.

How does it work?

CBD affects the brain. The specific reason for these impacts isn't apparent. Still, CBD appears to prevent the breakdown of a compound in the brain that influences mood, pain, and brain function. Preventing the breakdown of this chemical and increasing its levels in the blood appears to diminish symptoms of conditions like schizophrenia. CBD may likewise impede a portion of the psychoactive impacts of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Additionally, cannabidiol seems to soothe anxiety and pain.

What kind of pain is CBD for?

CBD is known for its property to relieve pain. Study and research have found the following effects of CBD on one's health:

Arthritis:

In 2016, a study published in the European Journal of Pain reported a significant drop in pain and inflammation, without any side effects, after administering CBD.

Neuropathic pain:

Neuropathy is pain caused by damage to the nerves. This pain is associated with injuries like herniated discs. A study in 2018 ruled that CBD had greater advantages than disadvantages for relieving pain.

Multiple Sclerosis:

 Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and nerves and can cause muscle spasms. According to the report, many people reported relief in their pain.

 

Chronic Pain:

A study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine concluded that there was substantial evidence to support CBD helped relieve chronic pain symptoms.

Any Side-effects?

Because it is derived from the cannabis plant, people fear it may be addictive or induce a “high.” This isn’t the case. That said, for some people, there can be side effects like fatigue, dry mouth, etc., but the drug is usually well-tolerated.

What To Consider Before Buying It?

CBD is available in a wide variety of forms in the market. These include tinctures, oils, creams and lotions, vaporizers, edibles, etc. It is generally advised to avoid vaporizers because of the risk of lung damage.

Another thing to watch out for is how reliable the manufacturer is. Many cannabidiols out there are contaminated, so ensure that the drug has a seal of approval from an authority.
