Pain is a nightmare to treat. If visiting a doctor, they are likely to give you pain killers and/or anti-inflammatories depending on the type pain and its causes.
CBD oil is likely to assist with pain as it attaches itself to the CB1 endocannabinoid receptors that are found in our bodies. The ECS (Endocannabinoid System) acts as a somewhat regulatory system in our bodies.
It balances, amongst others, the following :
- Hormonal function
- Memory and learning
Often it is worth pairing CBD with adaptogens such as Ashwaganda, Devils Claw, Turmeric, Linalool etc.
It is an anti-inflammatory, offers immediate pain relief and assist with regulating blood pressure and cholesterol. One does not build a tolerance to CBD, so taking it for extended lengths of time is not an issue. In fact, as your issue improves your dose may be decreased.
CBD is generally more effective than opioids and anti-inflammatories, as it attaches to the CBD receptors in the body – working in a totally different way to conventional medicines.
When a tissue injury or a possibly negative change to cells and tissues in the body occurs, such as a cut or even disease, the bodies own endocannabinoid system send the messages out to the brain to notify it that something is wrong. The endocannabinoid system then monitors the issue/s and if it starts to heal on its own then it reduces the production of endocannabinoids which sends a message to the brain.
The problem is that once you start taking chemical pain medications they effectively take control of the body. The more the chemical medications are used, the less chance the body has of healing itself.
By adding CBD back into the mix, we are assisting the body to work naturally again. In years gone by, animals were fed hemp which therefore got into our bodies, other parts of the hemp plants were ploughed back into the ground and compost heaps. Our bodies are struggling as they are overwhelmed by toxins and cannot heal themselves properly and we have come to rely on the quickest fix for a problem, being the chemical medications.
