Cannabis Salve for Natural Pain Relief
While the government has been confused about the role marijuana plays in treating pain and illness, consumers understand the dramatic effects this natural remedy can have on their wellness and quality of life. Not only can cannabis help with chronic pain, but the many disorders that are “pain adjacent” – like insomnia, anxiety, depression, and fatigue. From the positive stories around us to our data-driven knowledge, cannabis is helping people with pain. Take, for example, The National Academies of Science study that concluded: “adult patients with chronic pain who were treated with cannabis/cannabinoids were more likely to experience a significant reduction in pain symptoms.”
So how does it all work? Let’s break it down:
First up – THC vs. CBD.
Both THC and CBD are components of cannabis, THC is the psychoactive compound that gets you “high.”
CBD without THC does not cause a high.
Understanding the endocannabinoid system is essential to know how both components affect the body. Understanding how THC and CBD work medicinally is about how they interact with this system.
The endocannabinoid system modulates the body’s desire to stay balanced and stable – it’s a vast network of chemical signals and cellular receptors that are densely packed throughout our brains and bodies, so it has the massive job of regulating many of our most significant body functions. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body and have a significant role in how pain affects us. The CB1 receptors are found mainly in the central nervous system, which includes the nerves of your spinal cord and brain, and affects a person’s pain experience. CB2 receptors are essential to the body’s immune response and have pain-relieving properties. “External” cannabinoids THC and CBD bind to these receptors and, by doing that, can affect pain reduction and more.
CBD without THC can still impact pain bcause it interacts with pain receptors in the brain, leading to pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects. CBD’s impact on the cannabinoids is still being studied, many believe it works by preventing endocannabinoids from being broken down, or CBD binds to a receptor that hasn’t been discovered yet. Cannabis is helping people endure the pain and effects of so many diseases. Its proven benefits are increasing, specifically for 15 complex conditions, from fibromyalgia to rheumatoid arthritis. Many take cannabis for its positive impact in dealing with pain and other effects of cancer, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Osteoarthritis, PTSD, and more.
