Are you looking for pain relief? Have sore joints or a pulled muscle?
Let’s face it, no one likes to be in pain. Whether you have sore muscles from overexerting yourself at the gym, a bad headache, or recurring discomfort from an ongoing health condition, you will likely find yourself in need of pain relief from time to time.
What Is Pain?
Pain is a general signal that something is wrong in the body. Physical pain occurs when nerves identify tissue damage and send a signal about the issue to the brain. Physical pain can be described in many ways, such as aching, throbbing, burning, and shooting pain.
And there are different types of pain. Acute pain is short-term pain that comes on suddenly and is caused by something specific, like an accident or injury. It goes away when there is no longer an underlying cause for the pain. Chronic pain is pain that is ongoing and can continue even after the injury or illness that caused it has healed or gone away.
Some of the most common types of pain include arthritis pain, back pain, headache, joint pain, muscle pain, neck pain, and toothache.
How to deal with pain
Your doctor might suggest that you try a powerful opioid medication. But that’s not your only option, and it shouldn’t be your first.
Nearly a third of adults ages 50 to 80 report filling such a prescription within the past two years, according to a July University of Michigan poll.
These drugs can be risky: As many as a quarter of people taking opioids long-term end up battling addiction. But doctors still handed out more than 191 million opioid prescriptions in 2017 alone. We have an alternative for you that many professionals use and that has helped thousands of people in the past 10 years; Hemp Cream for pain.
What is hemp cream
In case you are a beginner, then you might be wondering what hemp cream is. To begin with, Cannabis cream is made from the extracts of non-GMO Cannabis plants. Unlike Marijuana, Hemp plants have low THC concentration, lower than 0.3%. To reiterate for the uninitiated: CBD is not the same as THC because CBD does not have any psychoactive effects — aka, it won’t get you high.
Hemp creams for pain relief are typically made from infusing high-quality cannabis flowers in some kind of quality oil-coconut or olive typically-which extracts the active compounds, either CBD, THC, or both depending on the type of hemp used. (Here’s a guide to the difference between THC, CBD, cannabis, and hemp.) This oil is then blended with other therapeutic herbs, such as arnica or lemongrass essential oils, that are thought to also ease pain.
If you read the ingredient list, often everything in the jar is straight from mother earth.
The key potential benefits of CBD topicals include reducing pain and inflammation, soothing skin problems, and helping to heal wounds.
- Arthritis: A 2017 study published in the journal Pain found that acute joint inflammation in arthritic rats was reduced by local CBD treatment.
- Inflammation: An in vitro study published in Neurology showed that CBD binds to and desensitizes ECS receptors in the skin, which mediate pain perception and inflammation.
- Skin conditions: CBD is a safe, effective treatment for patients suffering from chronic skin conditions like psoriasis and atopic dermatitis along with resulting scars, according to a human study published in 2019 in the Italian journal La Clinica Terapeutica.
- Wound care: A case report published in 2017 in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management showed that CBD and THC applied topically could offer effective pain and symptom management for malignant wounds.
