The number surrounding prevalence of chronic pain in the United States is alarming — more than 20% of adults report chronic pain, and this number is bound to grow as our population ages. As people turn to invasive surgeries or risky painkillers to find relief, you want to find a better way that works with your body for more sustainable results, which is where CBD oil comes in.
At Mountain View Headache & Spine, Dr. Ruchir Gupta and our team have dedicated themselves to helping patients find pain management options that work with the human body rather than around it. As part of our wide range of services and products, we offer CBD oil, which checks many boxes for a more natural approach to relieving pain.
Here’s a look at how CBD oil tackles chronic pain.
When you have chronic pain, that pain often stems from an acute problem and then takes on a life of its own, often becoming a diagnosis in and of itself. This occurs for many reasons, including that your pain pathways remain activated and highly sensitive.
To quiet these pathways, we can turn to CBD, which is a non-psychoactive component of cannabis. CBD works so well for addressing pain because it taps into an existing system in your body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Briefly, your ECS is a vast and complex cell-signaling system inside your body that influences a wide range of areas, including your nerve signaling. The peripheral nerves in your body, as well as the center of your nervous system — your brain — feature numerous cannabinoid receptors, which can block pain signaling when they’re activated. This activation can come in many different forms, including CBD oil.
There are numerous benefits of using CBD oil to tackle chronic pain, starting with CBD is considered quite safe. As we stated, CBD isn’t psychoactive, which means it works quietly with your ECS without altering your state of mind.
As well, CBD isn’t addictive, like some pain medications, which makes it not only a non-invasive approach to pain management but a low-risk approach, as well.
It’s important to understand that there’s been a massive influx of CBD products that all claim to “cure” pain. We urge you to approach these products carefully because how the CBD is processed can make all the difference in combating your pain.
At our practice, we offer CBD oils that have been refined sufficiently so that your body easily absorbs the CBD. In other words, the products we offer are going to where they need to go — into your ECS.
