The research on CBD products for pain and pain management has been promising.
CBD is being touted as an alternative for people who have chronic pain and currently rely on medications such as opioids. While the research and self-proclaimed stories have been promising, more research is needed to verify CBD’s ability to reduce pain.
For the over 3 million people in the US who report ongoing pain each year, most agree that not only is it worth a shot, it might be there final option. The American Academy of Family Physicians states that there is a correlation between the number of opioids prescribed and overdoses from those drugs. The Cleveland Clinic acknowledges that chronic pain not only causes physical effects on the body but also emotional effects such as anxiety, depression, and anger. If you are someone with any type of acute or chronic pain, you understand that any possibility of some relief can change your life.
How could CBD help? Researchers believe the Endocannabinoid System allows CBD to help
Everyone has a “signal processing” system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) in your body has receptors all over that acts as an air traffic controller, the ultimate regulator. The ECS regulates signals of appetite, pain sensations, mood, memory and much more. People dealing with chronic pain are receiving these pain sensations constantly, so the area of pain is constantly feeling the distress. Feeling the distress constantly then creates an emotional pain.
Enter CBD. CBD supplements contain plant-based cannabinoids which can act as a kick starter for the ECS. Researchers believe the plant-based cannabinoid, CBD, may interact within the ECS to better regulate these signals creating anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving responses 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 and stay in 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.
