Pain Relief with CBD
Frequently Asked Questions
The major symptom of many short and long-term illnesses is the pain, both chronic and acute. According to Discover CBD, disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetic Neuropathy, and others, whether derived from the primary or central nervous system, leave patients with unrelenting pain not easily controlled by common pain medications. Although few clinical trials measuring the effects of Cannabidiol oil intake on pain management exist, preliminary studies suggest the use of CBD for chronic pain management, allowing an increase in quality of life and the ability to rest without pain. **There is some research out there that suggests CBD might be a good solution for those that are sensitive to other medications as well**
CBD, along with other cannabinoids, was long misunderstood and took a backseat to the more widely known cannabinoid- THC. The following is a basic list of how CBD can benefit the human body**:
- Potent anti-oxidant that is stronger than vitamins C and E. The combination of THC and CBD make an even stronger anti-oxidant (Lee, 2011).
- Powerful analgesics that seems to work especially well for traditionally difficult to treat neuropathic pain (Lee, 2011).
- Neuroprotective agents that are thought to help prevent Alzheimer’s and other age-related neurodegenerative disorders (Lee, 2011).
- Serotonin balancing agent which acts as an antidepressant, and has a positive impact on reducing anxiety, addiction, appetite, sleep, pain perception, nausea and vomiting (Lee, 2011). Serotonin also affects your ability to rest, regenerate and find serenity (Eric Braverman, 2004, p. 138)
- Regulates blood pressure.
- Facilitates bonere-absorptions.
- Cytotoxic to breast cancer and other cancer cells while being a cyto-preservative to healthy cells. (Russo, 2011)
- Agent against methicillin-resistant Strephylococcus aureus (MRSA), the staph infection that plagues many hospitals today (Lee, 2011).
