For some people, pain is not a momentary discomfort that soon goes away, but an everyday occurrence that shows no signs of stopping. Some might feel it in their inflamed joints, while others might feel it elsewhere. In all cases, they’d do anything to get some relief.
If you suffer from arthritis or chronic pain, CBD could provide that extra bit of relief that helps you get through your day. All you need to do is to put a few drops of CBD oil under your tongue or rub some CBD-infused lotion or cream on your painful joints.
Preliminary studies have showed that CBD suppresses inflammatory and chronic pain in animals, and that CBD might be just as effective as opioids in relieving pain for humans. There is also anecdotal evidence that CBD makes a huge difference in relieving some users’ chronic pain.
The problem with opioids is that although they are effective, they can also be addictive. Taking too many opioids can result in patients forming a drug dependence or taking them to get high. In contrast, CBD is considered safe, non-addictive, and not liable to be abused by users, though you do have to be aware of the potential side effects, such as fatigue and/or digestive issues.
While CBD is generally safe on its own, the Arthritis Foundation suggests talking to your doctor before using CBD for arthritis pain relief, as it might react to some of the drugs commonly used to treat arthritis, such as Aleve or Celebrex.
