What You Need to Know About CBD Oil for Pain Relief

With a strong focus on health and wellness in recent times, more and more people are looking for safe and effective alternatives to traditional pharmaceutical medication. These days, consumers are turning to cannabidiol (CBD), like the range of Rethink CBD oils and products, for relief from pain, anxiety, and sleep disorders, among others. However, misinformation around CBD and its uses persist, and experts warn that we need to understand CBD to help overcome the stigma associated with it.

According to Pharmacist and Certified Holistic Cannabis Practioner Sean Willard, research on the efficacy of CBD oil for pain relief has seen incredibly positive results, despite an initial lack of studies to support the benefits of CBD oils. “CBD has been found to assist in the relief of a wide variety of health issues and symptoms. Pain and inflammation is one such area.”

So, how can CBD help with pain relief?

Willard explains, “The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that receives and translates signals from cannabinoids of its own, which are called endocannabinoids. The ECS helps to regulate functions such as sleep, immune-system responses, and pain.”

By supplementing with additional cannabinoids like CBD oils, the body’s own system will regulate those receptors. This makes CBD oil one of the best supplements for not only building immunity but also pain relief and better quality of sleep, among other benefits.

What kind of pain are we talking about?

So, what kind of pain does CBD treat? “You’ll be glad to know the research on CBD products and pain management has been promising to date,” says Willard.“ Supplementing with CBD can offer an alternative for people with chronic pain who typically rely on pharmaceutical medications, which can be habit-forming and cause other side effects.”

Some of the possible benefits of CBD oil for common pain-related conditions include arthritis, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, migraines, cluster headaches and even irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and related symptoms. However, Willard emphasises the importance of using trusted CBD products and consulting with your doctor before attempting any new treatments for pain and inflammation.

“Rethink Daily Capsules and Oils provide three strengths, allowing consumers to choose a product that suits their current health needs. What’s more, it also promotes the use of no more than 20mg of CBD per day. This allows new users to start on a lower strength first before moving up based on their personal needs.”

“What we’re most excited about is that by using CBD oil, patients suffering from acute and even chronic pain will find relief without the risk of drug intoxication and dependence. With the consent of your doctor, CBD products may greatly improve your pain management results,” he concludes.
