Unfortunately, chronic pain is very common. It has been estimated that about 100 million Americans live with chronic pain. Although there are many options available for pain relieving treatment, those options are not always effective for some patients. At Regenerative Spine and Pain Specialists, we offer CBD (cannabidiol) oil as an innovative, new solution for relieving pain.
CBD oil helps to ease chronic pain by reducing inflammation. It is also important to note that CBD oil does not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the compound responsible for creating the “high” associated with marijuana. Instead, CBD oil naturally influences the body to use its own endocannabinoid system (a system of cell-to-cell communication) more effectively, which promotes pain relief. It also helps prevent the body from absorbing anandamide, a compound associated with pain regulation.
CBD oil can be effective for many types of chronic pain, including:
- Cancer pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Lower back pain
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Neuropathic pain
CBD oil is also commonly used to address anxiety and depression, and even in patients who struggle with insomnia. CBD does not increase serotonin, but studies have found that CBD’s effects on those receptors can produce both antidepressant and anti-anxiety effects. It also can provide similar results to antidepressants, without the common side effects associated with them. Antidepressants can take weeks to take effect, and CBD oil has a faster effect on depression and anxiety.
