CBD MAY REDUCE AND RELIEVE CHRONIC PAIN
Millions of people around the world suffer from chronic pain. Whether it is arthritis, back pain, fibromyalgia, migraines and headaches, multiple sclerosis or another type of inflammatory condition, living with chronic pain can be debilitating for the sufferer.
According to WebMD, there are between 50 to 116 million people suffering from chronic pain and the cost of chronic pain in medical expenses and lost productivity is estimated to be between $560 to $635 billon a year in the US alone!
The human body has a widely unknow system call the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which is a network of receptors and neurotransmitters that may help to control pain, appetite, immune systems and more. Many chronic pain issues can be directly or indirectly related back to the ECS.
Many studies have found that CBD (cannabinoids) may encourage the activities between the neurotransmitters and receptors and may have the ability to help reduce inflammation in the body.
One such study saw a significant drop in inflammatory pain due to arthritis in animals after just 4 days of CBD treatments.
Another study found that CBD may have a significant reduction in chronic pain, reduction of inflammation and improvements in sleep.
