CBD is short for cannabidiol, a chemical compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant. CBD is a naturally occurring substance that does not include THC, the active compound in cannabis commonly associated with euphoria. CBD is extracted from the plant to provide patients with pain relief and several other health benefits without the psychoactive effects related to the use of traditional marijuana.
CBD is linked to pain relief for headaches as it impacts specific receptors in the brain. A 2019 review published in “Current Opinion in Neurology” indicates CBD can suppress the release of proteins connected to inflammatory pain and assist in modulating the immune cell system. (4)
CBD oil has been touted as one of the best medicines to avoid dependence upon opioids and other medications used to treat chronic pain. CBD oil is stronger than most non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. (5) CBD has strong antioxidant properties designed to decrease inflammation, improve brain health and general wellness.
Arthritis impacts over 54 million Americans daily. With arthritis comes joint pain, inflammation, decreased range of motion, and discomfort. Several recent studies indicate that CBD can reduce joint pain, inflammation, and symptoms of arthritis. (1) These studies show CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) receptors, allowing for pain-relieving effects and anti-inflammatory properties to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling. We recommend CBD oil for joint pain as it does not have adverse side effects, and many of our customers find decreased pain and improved quality of life. In addition to providing pain relief, CBD improves sleep and overall physical function. (2)

I can make fists, which was not the case before I began this treatment.”(3) Conditions that improve following full-spectrum CBD use include;
