Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is used by some people with chronic pain. CBD oil may reduce pain, inflammation, and overall discomfort related to a variety of health conditions. CBD oil is a product made from hemp. It’s a type of cannabinoid, a chemical found naturally in hemp plants, it is a different plant to weed, cannabis or skunk but is in the same family of plants. Hemp and CBD doesn’t cause the “high” feeling often associated with cannabis, which is caused by a different type of cannabinoid called THC.
Studies on CBD oil and pain management have shown a great deal of promise. CBD can offer an alternative for people who have chronic pain and rely on more dangerous, habit-forming medications like opioids. But there needs to be more research in order to verify the pain-relieving benefits of CBD oil, science shows that CBD can also be effective on our nerve based pain.
Keep reading to learn more about the potential benefits of CBD oil for pain. You can also talk with your doctor to see if it is an option for your condition.
CBD for chronic pain relief
Researchers think that CBD interacts with receptors in your brain and immune system. Receptors are tiny proteins attached to your cells that receive chemical signals from different stimuli and help your cells respond. This creates anti-inflammatory and pain killing effects that help with pain management. This means that CBD oil may help people with chronic pain, such as chronic back pain.
One 2008 review (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2503660/) assessed how good CBD works to relieve chronic pain. The review looked at studies conducted between the late 1980s and 2007. Based on these reviews, researchers concludedCBD was effective in overall pain management without adverse side effects. They also noted that CBD was beneficial in treating insomnia related to chronic pain.
The authors of the study also noted that CBD was most helpful in people with multiple sclerosis (MS).
CBD for arthritis pain relief
A 2016 study (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4851925/) looked at the use of CBD in rats with arthritis. Researchers applied CBD gel to rats for four days in a row. They applied 0.6, 3.1, 6.2, and 62.3 milligrams per day. The researchers noted reduced inflammation and overall pain in the rats’ affected joints without side effects.
The anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects of the CBD gel could hold promise for people with arthritis. However, more human studies are needed.
CBD for cancer treatment relief
CBD oil is also used by some people who have cancer. A few studies in mice have shown a reduction of cancerous tumors. But most human studies have involved research into the role of CBD oil in managing pain related to cancer and cancer treatment. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) (https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/patient/cannabis-pdq#link/_15) has pointed to CBD as a possible option for relieving symptoms caused by chemotherapy.
One study by the NCI tested CBD oil extracts sprayed into the mouth. The CBD oil was used in conjunction with opioids. This study revealed better pain management with the help of CBD oil. But more research is still needed.
Research also shows that CBD is generated in our own bodies, in tiny amounts, women produce lots of CBD in breast milk to help with the baby’s development, this is 1 main reason breast milk is far superior over powdered milk formula. Still our bodies don’t produce enough CBD to aid with some conditions, by taking CBD as a supplement we can add more to our bodies system.
Based on the information linked above you can see how our conclusion and advise bellow is valid, it is not medical advice nor is it a medical claim, but mealy advise on using a product based on research from government medical professionals.
CBD when taken in excess will be stored in our fat cells to use later, based on this for those who suffer chronic or bad conditions it may be worth consuming a large dose of CBD of around 300mg over a day or two, by vaping the product you should see results within minutes to hours providing its vaped correctly (see tips bellow). Once you have consumed the high dose you should top up with smaller doses each day at the onset of pain and discontinue once the pain disappears, repeat each day as and when need, this dose would be different to each person, if its pain then its best to dose to keep you out of pain.
Tip 1.Is to inhale the product and hold it in, this is important as it allows your body to consume the entire dose rather than exhaling 80% of the CBD, saving money and getting a better result.
Tip 2.Vaping on a good ecigarette is best, using the pen type is good, the style that are about as wide as a cigar are best for chronic, if using a mod box (the type that produce huge vapour clouds) that has variable wattage try to keep it bellow 25 watts on a 0,5ohm coil or 55 watts on a 0.15 ohm coil. Ideal Watts would be at around 15-20 watts to prevent burning off the cbd.
Tip 3CBD is stored in fat cells, the longer you take CBD the less you need for the same effect, therefore, over a few weeks you should get the same result from as little as 10mg of CBD even if it originally took 300mg to obtain the same effect.
Tip 4.CBD will not FIX a problem, pain is caused for a reason, in most conditions activities such as physiotherapy could fix the problem that causes the pain, CBD has the potential based on research above to MASK the pain to offer temporary relief until the CBD levels lower, for long term pain management it would be best to seek medical advice on how to resolve the source of pain and use CBD to help with the management of the pain while working with medical professionals to resolve the source of pain.
Tip 5. Its is suggested in medical journals such as the ones linked above that a person is best to have a build up supply of cbd in fat cells for better effects for pain management, based on this it would be reasonable to comment that underweight persons may struggle to get a satisfactory result from CBD for some conditions or may have results that last a minimal time, based on the detailed information from medical journals it would also suggest that persons that are morbidly obese may need to consume a lot of CBD making it a very expensive form of therapy. However there is no evidence that makes this comment a fact.
Tip 6.It is also recommended that you do at least 30 minutes of exercise daily while using CBD (exercise that gets your heart pumping), exercise is believed to increase blood flow around the body and therefore increase the amount of CBD running through your system, this would increase the likely hood of CBD hitting the source of pain. However there is no evidence that makes this comment a fact it is a suggestion that seems to show better results based on what people report.
