Hemp Oil and Pain Management

CBD Oil, or Hemp Oil is a product made from a type of cannabis plant. Unlike Marijuana, Hemp Oil does not contain THC- the hormone responsible for causing the “high” feeling often associated with cannabis. 

Studies on CBD Oil and pain management have shown a great deal of promise. CBD Oil can offer an alternative for people who have chronic pain and rely on more dangerous, habit-forming medications like opioids.  Hemp Oil helps treats pain, inflammation, and overall discomfort related to a variety of health conditions without the negative side effects of prescription medication. 

How It Works

Research has shown that CBD interacts with receptors in your brain and immune system. These receptors attach to cells and receive pain signals from different nerve endings. This creates anti-inflammatory and painkilling effects that help with pain management.

The Research

There have been multiple studies done to show the positive effects Hemp Oil has on pain management. For instance, one 2008 review observed studies conducted between the late 1980s and 2007 to determine CBD Oil was effective in overall pain management without adverse side effects. They also noted that CBD Oil was beneficial in treating insomnia related to chronic pain.

A 2016 study also looked at the use of CBD in rats with arthritis. Researchers applied CBD gel to rats for four days in a row. They applied 0.6, 3.1, 6.2, and 62.3 milligrams per day. The researchers noted reduced inflammation and overall pain in the rats’ affected joints without side effects.
