Let’s see what the experts have to say…
One of the popular uses of cannabinoids today is their ability to manage and control pain, but what types of pain?
According to International Journal of Molecular Sciences, a peer reviewed scientific journal, the Endocannabinoid System is what regulates our pain perception and through activation of our CB1 CB2 receptors (Zou, Kumar, 2018).
The study stated that cannabinoids have analgesic (pain relieving) properties that help with different types of pain including neuropathic, inflammatory, cancer, chronic, mechanical, and heat pain (Zou, Kumar, 2018).
The study stated that this is all possible due to cannabinoids interaction with our CB1 and CB2 receptors and CBD’s anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties (Zou, Kumar, 2018).
Pain management is very important not only here in America, but around the world. People have conditions that they want to address without destroying their bodies and according to W.H.O., Cannabidiol (CBD) does just that (WHO, n.d.)
The goal is to share this information and offer an alternative medicine that people can utilize in their daily lives to alleviate pain, improve daily activities, reduce dependency on pharmaceuticals, and reduce the number of overdoses.
