Relief Management Support Range
Joint pain is a common condition many faces at some point in their life, which can be managed with certain medication and lifestyle changes.
Here, you will discover research on the potential benefits of using CBD for joint pain, along with pain management techniques for the pain relief you need with Naturecan.
PAIN 101: WHAT IS PAIN & WHAT ARE THE CAUSES?
Joint pain is a common condition which involves discomfort, bruising or swelling in one or more joints. It can have a negative impact on quality of life and prevent people from performing certain tasks. The pain can occur during or after certain activities, such as exercise, or it can be more constant. Joints often affected include the shoulders, wrists, hands, hips, spine, knees and feet.
If you are experiencing any kind of discomfort in your joints, it would be advised to speak with your local GP who will be able to assess and possibly prescribe medications to ease joint pain, and there are also a number of lifestyle changes people can make to find relief.
COULD CBD HELP WITH PAIN?
Early studies into CBD and pain have yielded promising results, providing evidence that CBD may have the potential to ease the perception of different types of pain, including chronic pain, joint pain and arthritis-caused pain.
HOW COULD CBD HELP TO RELIEVE PAIN?
1. CBD & PAIN
Alongside a wealth of anecdotal evidence, some preliminary research indicates that CBD could support pain relief. A 2018 review of research into CBD and pain concluded that CBD can regulate the perception of pain by affecting a range of receptors within the body. It also inhibits the uptake of an endocannabinoid called anandamide, which is linked to increased pain tolerance.
2. CBD & INFLAMMATION
There’s evidence that CBD could support relief from arthritis-related pain/inflammation. In one animal study, transdermal CBD was applied to rats with arthritis. The researchers observed reductions in joint swelling, improvements in limb posture and normalised sensitivity to noxious stimuli. The researchers concluded that topical CBD could have the potential to relieve arthritis-caused pain and inflammation, without adverse side effects.
3. CBD & BACK PAIN
Lower back pain is a very common sensation to experience, with almost two-in-three people having lower back pain at some point in their life.
In a 2020 study, researchers found that using CBD oil for several days may potentially contribute to reduced back pain. The effects of CBD have also potentially been found to help with stress which will allow the body to relax and relieve tightness in the muscles of the back.
4. CBD & CHRONIC PAIN
Chronic pain is a type of pain which lasts for more than three months. It can be caused by an illness or injury which has long passed, or by an ongoing health or medical condition, such as arthritis. It can negatively impact a person’s daily life and cause distress or even disability. In a 2021 survey of patients’ perspectives on CBD as a support for chronic pain, the majority responded that CBD products have helped their pain (59.0%) and allowed them to reduce their pain medications (67.6%). Again, it is always advised to speak with a medical professional before you.
CBD OIL POTENTIAL BENEFITS
Recent studies have discovered cannabinoid receptors in our peripheral nerves (which is where the pain is detected) and have found that cannabinoids like CBD are able to block peripheral nerve pain in a whole new way.
It can do this without possible side effects or lasting dependency, suggesting that CBD effects may be a more sustainable option for managing pain without impairing your daily life.
Not only this, but CBD also has potential benefits, including sleep, mood, skin health and so much more.
