Explore the Wonders of CBD Oil for Pain
By Space Coast Daily // July 6, 2019
Everyone is searching for a better way to manage pain these days. We constantly turn on the news and read about the opioid crisis and how people are getting hooked on prescription pain medications and it scares a lot of people.
Those who are in legitimate pain and need help are afraid to ask for it. Some people are foregoing filling prescriptions from their doctors because they don’t want a controlled substance even in their own home.
CBD may be an option and right now it is making a huge impact on the market. It’s available everywhere, even on the counter in some convenience stores when you pay for your gas these days.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions for many people. Let’s address some of these questions.
Is It Addictive?
CBD is not addictive at all. Many people are able to use it only when necessary because it begins working within minutes and it will not cause withdrawal symptoms should you decide not to take it again or you are relieved of your symptoms and simply no longer need it for pain.
Regardless of your reason for using CBD oil, you can rest assured that you will not have any issues if you decide to stop taking it.
In fact, CBD is being used to help curb cravings for those who are trying to quit other addictive things, like nicotine.
CBD works within the body to help prompt the body’s endocannabinoid system to work harder and boost the immune system. It doesn’t do anything drastic, won’t impact internal organs, cause ulcers or digestive upset. You’ll not have to worry about any long-term, negative effects from using CBD.
Is It Harmful?
There has been no incident of anyone dying or overdosing on CBD oil to the extent of harm. If you take a heavy dose of oil, you may experience diarrhea.
You might even get a slight headache or some cramps from excessive oil intake. When the CBD is stopped, those effects will go away also. Then you may resume use with a smaller dosage. Increase your doses very gradually and you’ll avoid this from happening at all.
Since the body has an endocannabinoid system that produces its own cannabinoids within the body, called endocannabinoids, introducing other cannabinoids that work within this system seems to be quite natural.
In all of the years that people have been using CBD oil, there has never been a case of it harming anyone. It eases digestive disorders rather than cause them, like aspirin can.
CBD has proven itself to be so safe that it is given to children and to pets without any harm. It is likely safer than many over-the-counter medications that you’d use from the pharmacy at your local drug store.
Does It Work?
This is a question that remains somewhat in the air as far as conclusive evidence. Scientists do know for a fact that CBD works to reduce pain in lab animals. So far, the only testing done has been done on research animals where pain can be studied and so far, these results are outstandingly in favor of using CBD for pain.
When it comes to evidence and data on human use, there have been no actual physical trials done on humans. This is definitely in the works.
What we have now are questionnaire type research studies where groups of individuals have been asked to rate how they felt both before and after using the CBD over a course of several weeks. Then percentages in the groups are figured statistically.
While these studies all conclude that the majority of people report feeling much better while using CBD, there are no actual clinical trials as of yet. Science simply hasn’t gotten quite that far yet. CBD is relatively new to all markets since it was made legal nationwide less than one year ago.
People are scrambling to develop new products and conduct testing. It is all in the works and we will likely see results over the next five to ten years on several different lines of research for using CBD. Research on Other Remedies is simply a slow process.
For now, most people when asked will tell you that they feel remarkably better when using CBD for their pain. Arthritis pain sufferers love using CBD oil as it has no side effects that some of the arthritis medications can have.
Will I Get High?
Since CBD doesn’t impact the cannabinoid receptors of the ECS that are in the brain, you will not get high. THC is the compound responsible for making people high and that is in very tiny amounts in CBD oil products.
In fact, it is only found in full-spectrum products and in amounts less than .03%. No one uses CBD to get high because it is impossible. You’ll feel relaxed, mentally alert, and calm, but you won’t be high.
