Whether inflammation-related or cramp-like, whether toothache, muscle pain, headache or nerve pain - pain can have many causes and can be treated in just as many ways. For people looking for natural substances to combat pain, CBD oil could be a way to combat pain naturally.
Successful use for pain
The use of cannabis for pain has a long tradition in natural medicine. For example, it can be used to calm nervous tension and anxiety, or as an analgesic for chronic pain. Cannabidiol (CBD) is used particularly successfully for inflammation-related and spasmodic pain, as it has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antispasmodic and sedative or antipsychotic effects. This is because the phytocannabinoid binds to one of the endocannabinoid receptors, the so-called CB2 receptor, which has a crucial role in the immune system as it can cause or inhibit pain and inflammatory reactions. CBD suppresses the formation of these pro-inflammatory tissue hormones.
Especially for people who already take countless medications, CBD oil offers a natural alternative, as it optimally supports conventional therapy and, in the best case, can reduce the unpleasant side effects of conventional painkillers. Because the big plus with the use of CBD is: there are no significant side effects on the stomach/intestine, heart/circulation or kidneys. Thus, CBD is excellently suited as a supplement to conventional, but not optimally sufficient, pain therapy. In chronic pain disorders, however, the focus should not only be on pain relief, but on addressing the causal problem.
Natural remedy with no side effects worth mentioning
As a rule, cannabidiol-containing oil does not cause any side effects, but every body reacts differently to the ingredients, so that in rare cases minor side effects such as tiredness or loss of appetite may occur. It should not be forgotten that CBD is not a medicine but a natural remedy. Taking it can therefore take a little longer and, above all, require a certain regularity in order to develop its full effect.
For our customers at the Saint Charles Pharmacy, the oil is suitable, according to our experience, to relieve mild pain, such as temporary gastrointestinal complaints . In such cases, 5 drops in the morning and 5 drops in the evening are usually sufficient. In the evening, cannabidiol also has the advantage that it promotes sleep and prevents inner restlessness. CBD oil thus has a great potential in terms of pain treatment and relief. If you have further questions about the use of CBD for your needs, please contact our pharmacists at Saint Charles Pharmacy Vienna or Berlin for an individual consultation.
