Several million people suffer from chronic pain that impacts their daily quality of life. Despite scientific advances and the variety of drugs available to relieve pain, more and more people want to find natural alternatives without side effects. In addition to adverse effects, drug treatments can induce addiction that is not unanimous, both among patients and among doctors. Taking pain medication for a short time is good, but it can become problematic in the long run.
More and more people are turning to alternative medicine and natural solutions. For some years, CBD is one of the most popular natural solutions for pain relief. Indeed, this cannabinoid from hemp plants is particularly effective in soothing most everyday ailments. The advantage is that CBD comes in a multitude of forms and flavors, allowing consumers to find the product that best suits their needs.
Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the molecule responsible for the psychoactive effects of hemp, CBD (cannabidiol) poses no health hazard. No adverse side effects have been reported to date. You can therefore consume CBD with complete peace of mind in order to focus on your well-being and your physical relaxation.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of many cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Studied for several decades for medical and therapeutic purposes, CBD is widely known for its anti-stress and pain-relieving action. Thanks to the scientific studies carried out on it, we know that CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system, also called ECS. This system, common to all mammals, regulates essential body functions such as mood, sleep, appetite and pain.
In other words, the human body is receptive to cannabinoids and the consumption of CBD naturally fills certain imbalances in the body. Among other things, it helps reduce stress and anxiety, improve the quality of sleep andrelieve most pain, whether peripheral, central or neuropathic.
As you will have understood, many scientific studies have highlighted the therapeutic potential of hemp, and in particular CBD, in recent years. What you need to remember about pain is that CBD offers properties:
On the one hand, CBD acts on the ECS, and more specifically on the CB1 and CB2 receptors. By acting on these receptors, CBD regulates the pain signals sent by the brain. On the other hand,the active ingredients of CBD offer anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antioxidant effects that provide fast and effective relief in the event of injury or chronic pain. The action time depends on the mode of administration of the CBD (inhalation, local application, oral or sublingual route).
Although it is considered an excellent natural painkiller, CBD should not replace drug treatment. If in doubt, you should seek the advice of a health professional in order to make a reliable diagnosis and find the origin of your pain. In addition, only a doctor is able to tell you if there is a contraindication or a potential side effect depending on your case.
That being said, CBD can generally be used in conjunction with drug treatment and it can support you in a gentle and natural healing process. Although it is not intended to cure, CBD brings great relief to people suffering from chronic pain.
Thanks to its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties,CBD can be used to combat most everyday ailments. Common uses include muscle and joint pain, headaches, and painful periods.
Linked to lesions or an accumulation of toxins in the tissues, muscle pain is very common. They often appear after intense physical exertion or prolonged poor posture. We think in particular of twinges, numbness, aches, cramps, contractures or strains. Thanks to its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, CBD effectively relieves the majority of these muscle pains.
Joint pain such as osteoarthritis, arthritis or polyarthritis are often of inflammatory origin. The elderly and athletes are the most affected by cartilage wear. In fact, joint pain is generally caused by excessive stress on the joints. They can also be caused by trauma, inflammation or pathology. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD are ideal for relieving painful joints.
Headaches, also called migraines or tension headaches, are pains in the cranial box that can vary in intensity. These pains are very common and it is estimated that 50 to 75% of people suffer from a headache at least once a year. Obviously, when the headaches are intense and are accompanied by other important symptoms, it is essential to consult a doctor in order to determine the cause. In the meantime, CBD is proving to be very useful in relieving simple daily migraines.
CBD can be used to relieve painful periods and the symptoms of endometriosis. Menstrual pain usually lasts 1 to 3 days, but varies in intensity from person to person. For some women, pain in the lower abdomen is accompanied by other symptoms such as back pain, nausea, vomiting, migraines and severe fatigue. In this case, CBD helps relieve targeted pain in the stomach, but it also provides relief for all other symptoms. During this painful period, CBD offers women a pleasant feeling of well-being and physical relaxation.
Finally, CBD can also relieve pain related to skin problems such as shingles, psoriasis or insect bites. Any skin conditions that involve redness and itching can be soothed by the topical application of a CBD cream or lotion. If in doubt about the origin of the skin condition, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Flowers and resins are very popular forms of CBD. They can be consumed through a vaporizer, a pipe or a bong, an infusion or directly in your recipes. Depending on the mode of consumption chosen, the action time of CBD varies. For example, if you choose to inhale your CBD flowers or resins, you will feel almost instant relaxing effects.
If you choose to ingest them orally, by making an infusion or by integrating them into a culinary preparation, it takes about 1 hour to feel relaxing effects. On the other hand, the effects will last longer because the active ingredients remain in the digestive system for up to 7 hours. It is therefore a good solution for people who suffer from chronic pain and need relief for several hours.
CBD oil is a very popular format because it is easy to use and accessible to everyone, even beginners. To use it, just put a few drops under your tongue and let the product sit for a few minutes in your mouth. This process allows cannabinoids to quickly reach the bloodstream by passing through the oral mucous membranes. Thus, you will get relaxing and pain-relieving effects about 10 minutes after sublingual administration.
You can also put a few drops of CBD oils in your drinks and in your dishes. In this case, the CBD will have to pass through your digestive tract and the effects will take longer to appear.
CBD infusions are perfect for combining the pleasure of a warm and comforting drink with the pain-relieving properties of hemp. The advantage of infusions is that they come in many flavors to satisfy everyone's tastes and colors. In addition, it is a very easy way to integrate CBD into your wellness routine because this ready-to-use product does not require any special knowledge.
To make a CBD infusion, you can follow the same steps as for a classic infusion. Let your preparation infuse in boiling water for about ten minutes and do not forget to add a fat such as honey to activate the active ingredients of CBD.
CBD food supplements such as capsules and gummies are even easier to use because they do not require any preparation or dosage. Ready to use, food supplements are eaten like candy and allow you to benefit from the therapeutic virtues of hemp over the long term. Some food supplements act in synergy with other plants to target specific problems.
Local application of a CBD cream, lotion, or gel remains one of the best options for targeting specific physical pain. Thanks to this method, the epidermis absorbs the cannabinoids and facilitates the local action on the wound or the area to be treated.
For optimal pain relief effects, you can gently massage the area with your CBD cream for a few minutes. This facilitates the absorption of the active ingredients and achieves faster effects. Note that topical CBD products work quickly because the active ingredients do not need to pass through the bloodstream.
