CBD for Pain Relief
Anyone who has experienced chronic pain will know how debilitating it can be. Relying on prescription painkillers can lead to a risk of addiction and many people become frustrated with putting these artificial substances in their body. CBD can offer a natural alternative for pain relief. These are some different types of pain that CBD can help with.
What is CBD?
CBD is a completely natural product made from plants. It is part of the cannabis family but it won’t give you the ‘high’ traditionally associated with cannabis. This ‘high’ sensation is caused by THC which is present in very small quantities in some of our products. All of our products are legal within the UK and the majority of the EU and they are grown in Switzerland in full compliance with local laws.
CBD for Chronic Pain
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in your body. The ECS is responsible for making sure everything in your body is working as it’s meant to. Therefore, when you experience pain, your ECS is the system that tells your brain that you’re injured. The ECS continues to transmit pain signals even after you’ve been injured which shows your body where to reduce inflammation. You can read more about this here.
This is where CBD can help. CBD can assist the ECS and improve the ECS’s ability to mitigate pain signals being sent to the brain. Therefore, if you struggle with long-term back pain or another similar ailment then CBD may be able to assist your ECS in managing these pain signals.
CBD for Migraines
There has been a lot of research recently into the impact of CBD and migraines. Migraines can make everyday life difficult and finding a way to prevent them would be beneficial for millions of people. However, in 2018 a study took place which found that CBD oil with a low THC content, just like our Full Spectrum products, could reduce the level of migraine pain.
CBD for Cancer Pain
Treatment for cancer is often accompanied by many painful side effects. Managing these side effects can make cancer treatment more bearable and help you continue with your day to day life. The National Cancer Institute in the United States has suggested that CBD can be a potential option to help reduce some of the side effects of chemotherapy such as pain and vomiting.
CBD for Sports Injuries
Any athlete knows that injuries can setback your career or simply ruin your training plan. We understand that finding natural ways to relieve the pain from sports injuries and aid recovery is good news for athletes. CBD can have an anti-inflammatory effect, helping to reduce any inflammation caused by injury or excessive muscle use. Also, at Pure Organic CBD, lab reports are available for each product so you know exactly what you’re buying.
Which CBD Product is Best for Pain Relief?
The concentration of CBD required to treat pain depends on the severity of the discomfort that you are experiencing. People who find that their pain prevents them from living their day to day life should try 40% or 20% CBD. Full Spectrum products contain a small percentage of THC which can further help reduce pain and these products are great for everyone except athletes who are regularly drug-tested. This isn’t because the products are illegal but because athletes can’t have any traces of drugs within their system and the presence of THC could indicate that they’d been smoking cannabis.
