CBD-based products are increasingly being touted as an ideal solution to an assortment of problems: anxiety and depression, acne, cardiovascular problems, and insomnia. The leading cause for people turning to CBD is pain. Nerve pain, multiple sclerosis, arthritis – all the discomfort caused by this can be managed by CBD. But what makes CBD the most preferred option to manage pain?
Derived from hemp, which is a kind of cannabis plant, CBD (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid that has been shown to have many beneficial properties. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is not psychoactive, and therefore does not result in the mind-altering ‘stoned’ feeling that is commonly associated with marijuana. Hemp has less than 0.3% THC content. Therefore, the CBD oil has little to no THC and does not cause the consumer to get ‘high’ or ‘stoned’.
The human body has an endocannabinoid system. One of the components of this system is the endocannabinoid receptor. These receptors are of two types – CB1 and CB2. While CB1 receptors are mostly located in the brain, CB2 receptors are primarily present in the immune system. These receptors receive chemical signals from different stimuli and then enables the response of the cells. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system in such a way that it enables it to use its own cannabinoids more effectively. This improves the response of the receptors in the brain and immune system, leading to anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. This makes CBD an excellent choice for people with chronic pain.
When used along with opioid medicines, CBD can actually reduce the amount of opioids required for treatment and even lessen the buildup of tolerance. This plays a significant role in reducing the severity of withdrawal symptoms. Even if CBD is used without opioids, people are not likely to build up a tolerance to its effects and therefore, the dose will not need to be increased constantly.
