You may have heard about cannabidiol (CBD) from someone… a friend, a co-worker, or family member? You may have probably seen it on the Internet as you were browsing for an effective pain management method. Don’t be surprised as you can see CBD everywhere these days.
CBD is already a thing for pain relief, anxiety management, and even as a supplement on the Internet. In fact, a recent survey conducted on 2,400 CBD users found that 45% use CBD medicine to address ailments including pain and joint relief.
Professional athletes as well have started looking into CBD as an alternative treatment for pain. The survey mentioned earlier revealed that more than 40% of the participants said CBD worked better than pharmacological pain medicines like Tylenol or Vicodin.
With its increasing popularity, experts estimate that the CBD industry will boom faster than expected. Its worth is anticipated to nearly double every 2 years, reaching a staggering $1.8 billion by 2022.
So where are all the hype coming from? Why are some people going crazy about CBD?
This question is pretty quick to answer. CBD’s ability to treat a wide range of diseases with little to no adverse effects is the reason. While known to be related to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is non-addictive and non-psychotic. This means taking CBD will not lead to dependence and tolerance and it will not get you stoned.
How can CBD manage pain?
Before tackling its pharmacokinetics, it is important to understand our body system first. Our bodies are made up of different receptors that are responsible for different functions. Each time our body is alerted of let’s say pain, our natural endocannabinoid system works to suppress this sensation.
Endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters that have the ability to interact and bind with cell receptors to interrupt pain. CBD can actually modulate pain just like our natural endocannabinoids as it can bind to receptors and initiate biochemical and neuromechanical responses.
Okay. I want to give CBD a try. Which of the CBD products are best for pain relief?
If you type CBD on the Internet, you would be surprised to see different kinds, forms, dosages, and flavors of CBD available. This is a cause of headache itself. But personally, the CBD I use depends on the kind of pain I am experiencing. Check out my preference below.
For local pain, topical CBDs are my go-to. A small amount goes a long way, and they are quick and easy to apply. The miracle salve and CBD massage oil of Herbal Fracture are my best options. I simply massage a small amount into the affected area for relief.
Recently, I found out about the lip balm too. I use this every day to ensure my lips are kept moisturized. When the temperature is too cold, my lips tend to dry and flake out. I used the lip balm from Herbal Fracture to combat it. It does a really good job, to be honest.
For chronic pain, I think the old-school tinctures work best. Tinctures are taken sublingually so they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream, ditching the acidic environment of the digestive system. I suggest you hold the oil underneath your tongue first for 90 seconds before swallowing it. I usually take 6 to 8 drops of CBD. Herbal Fracture offers 1200mg full spectrum CBD tincture.
I also recommend tinctures for anxiety. Although I wasn’t diagnosed with an anxiety problem, I tend to show symptoms, especially at work. I easily get tense and bothered when something important is not done yet. After a week of taking CBD tinctures, I found myself feeling less tense and more relaxed in dealing with stress.
For sleeping problems, edibles will suffice my need. Herbal Fracture gummies are infused with 25mg of CBD per piece. I usually take one or two gummies before going to bed. Having a good night rest is very important for me and my job. Also, it improves my mood in the morning.
I know I mentioned a lot of CBD products that I use. But if you are just starting out, I suggest that you set a goal for yourself. Ask what do you want to be relieved? Then you can use my guideline above to address your issue. By the way, if you want to check Herbal Fracture, visit www.herbalfracture.com.
