CBD Cream / Gel Treatments
Cannabis plants, such as hemp and marijuana contain a naturally-occurring type of cannabinoid called cannabidiol or CBD. CBD is not responsible for the “high” that often comes after consuming cannabis. Topical CBD products are gaining widespread popularity as an alternative medication to deal with chronic pain use.
CBD oil in particular can help reduce:
- Chronic discomfort due to underlying health conditions
Research on pain management with CBD products is promising. The cannabinoid can be used as an alternative to habit-forming opioids and other pain relief drugs. There are several pharmacies that offer online prescription refills for CBD and its derivatives.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides safe and proven compounding medications in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
Chronic Pain Relief and CBD
Endocannabinoid system (ECS) is the cell-signaling system in a human body. Several researchers believe that CBD directly interacts with core endocannabinoid receptors in your immune system and brain. Receptors are in the form of tiny proteins that are attached to the cell wall. They receive chemical and other signals from different stimuli to help form an appropriate cell response.
These cell receptors when affected by CBD create pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects which help with pain management. CBD products, such as CBD oil can go a long way in dealing with chronic back pain and other issues.
A 2018 review of studies conducted between 1975 and 2017 assessed the effects of CBD on chronic pain. The studies examined different variations of pain, such as from:
Researchers of the review concluded that CBD was highly effective in pain management and did not cause the side effects as with traditional medicine.
Arthritis Pain Relief and CBD
People with arthritis may achieve some relief with CBD gel because of its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. However, results from human studies are awaited.
Cancer Treatment Relief and CBD
CBD can also be used by patients with certain types of cancer. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) claims CBD therapy can help reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, such as:
- Lack of appetite
Migraine Pain Relief and CBD
A 2017 result observed that THC and CBD could lead to less intense and acute pain for people suffering from migraines.
Side Effects of CBD
While CBD has several benefits, it does have a few side effects as well. You should read these before having a prescription filled at your nearest integrative pharmacy. Common side effects include:
- changes in appetite
- changes in weight
Unfortunately, CBD can also interact with certain prescription medicines, over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, and dietary supplements. You should never self-medicate by visiting a compounding pharmacy. Instead, you should allow the experts help you with your needs.
There is insignificant conclusive data supporting CBD products for pain relief and management. However, researchers still maintain that CBD oil and gel has immense potential to help the suffering without making them drug dependent.
