CBD & Pain

Full Spectrum Hemp CBD products have been touted as having amazing properties in relieving pain and inflammation. There are folks who swear by it and say that it has changed their lives. A lot of research has been done in the past but honestly there is so much more research that needs to be done.

Why may full spectrum hemp CBD products be effective for relieving these nagging issues? It all has to do with your amazing endo-cannabinoid system. This, the largest neurotransmitter system, helps regulate many of the processes in your body, including pain.

The Issue

One major national organization is aware of the growing popularity and availability of CBD-based products. Industry reports show that people with this specific ailment are among the top buyers, and pain is the leading reason for purchase. A July 2019 survey of 2,600 people with this condition shows significant use of and interest in CBD(cannabidiol). Earlier surveys have shown repeatedly that pain is the most burdensome symptom.

The Organization’s Position

As the largest organization representing the voice and needs of people with this condition, the Organization has always welcomed new treatment options because no single drug, supplement or therapy works for everyone. They believe patients should be empowered to find safe management strategies that are appropriate for them. The more options available, the likelier it is that more people will benefit.

They are intrigued by the potential of CBD to help people find pain relief and are on record urging the FDA to expedite the study and regulation of these products. While currently there is limited scientific evidence about CBD’s ability to help ease this particular condition’s symptoms, and no universal quality standards or regulations exist, they have listened to their constituents and consulted with leading experts to develop these general recommendations for adults who are interested in trying CBD.

It’s important to know that combining CBD with other pain relievers and permeation enhancers (compounds that allow for deeper penetration) can increase CBD’s effectiveness. nurseMARK formulated extra strength pain cream combines lidocaine and menthol to enhance the effects of the product overall.

At the end of the day it’s an exciting time to be in the cannabinoid healthcare space.
