From past injuries, back problems, arthritis to nerve damage, headaches or Fibromyalgia, Chronic pain is crippling the United States. The pain itself puts stress on the person both physically and mentally, “People who have chronic pain can have physical effects that are stressful on the body. These include tense muscles, limited ability to move around, a lack of energy, and appetite changes. Emotional effects of chronic pain include depression, anger, anxiety, and fear of re-injury” (Cleveland Clinic)

Can CBD help? Researchers believe the Endocannabinoid System may allow CBD to help
Distress from pain knocks your body out of balance, but the research is showing that CBD may help bring the body back to equilibrium. The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) in your body has receptors all over that acts as an air traffic controller, the ultimate regulator. The ECS regulates and manages appetite, pain sensations, mood, memory and much more. When the ECS is in equilibrium the body is in equilibrium.
Enter CBD. The body creates and utilizes its own cannabinoids that work within the ECS to support the system. CBD supplements contain plant-based cannabinoids which may act as a kick starter for the ECS. Now the ECS may have all the support it needs and can bring the body back to equilibrium. Researchers believe that the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) responds to the pain signals by telling the body to create anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects naturally.
- CBD alleviates symptoms immediately
- The same dosage is appropriate for everyone
As with most supplement regiments, it takes time and consistency to obtain desired results. Taking CBD products regularly will shorten the time frame for each serving to get into the ECS and begin working.
For dosage, much like health and performance supplements, you must listen to your body and find what is right for you. Every person has a different ECS and each body produces different amounts of cannabinoids, therefore what your need will be much different than your neighbor. This leaves us with the frustrating question of, what product is right for me and what dosage?
In general, getting CBD into the system is what matters. Whether that be from a CBD Capsule or from CBD Oil, the body takes the cannabinoids given and puts them to work. The most important part is dosage and consistency. So, first and foremost choose the product that will be easiest for you to take consistently, for some that is a CBD capsule for others it is through a tasty treat like CBD Caramels. For Dosage, start small and build up frequency and/or dosage. We recommend for an average person to start with 10mg per serving and take 1-2 times a day. Dose up from there increasing the amount per serving if nothing is ever felt and/or increasing the frequency if the effects wear off too quickly.
