What is CBD?
CBD, also known as (cannabidiol) is a chemical compound found in cannabis. It is the second most prevalent behind THC (which is the one that gets you high.)
Unlike THC, however, CBD has no mind-altering effects, while still offering many of the remarkable health benefits associated with cannabis. CBD is used in a variety of therapeutic settings, to treat a range of conditions including mental health issues, depression, and neuropathic pain.
Chronic pain is defined as any pain lasting consistently more than 12 weeks. Whereas acute pain is a normal sensation that alerts us to possible injury, chronic pain is very different. Chronic pain persists often for months, years or even decades, and may originate in the body, the brain or in the spinal cord.
Chronic pain in most cases affects patients’ day-to-day life and sometimes even their mental health. Chronic pain can be caused by injury, surgery, back problems, migraines/ headaches, arthritis, nerve damage, infections, fibromyalgia, auto-immune diseases, and many other factors.
Cannabinoids have been found to be involved in pain management and have helped thousands of chronic pain sufferers to feel relief.
The cannabinoid system modulates the activity of neurons projecting from the brain to the spinal cord. There is much clinical evidence that CBD is an effective treatment for chronic pain and has minor side effects in comparison to opioids and other pain killers on the market, prescribed by family doctors regularly.
