If you’ve heard the chatter about CBD but you’re still not quite sure what all the hype is or you’re still on the fence about it, you’ve come to the right place. If you are considering using CBD to help manage your pain, we want to provide you with the information to help you chose the best products to meet your needs. So what is CBD, how can it help manage your pain and what options are out there for you to try?
CBD In A Nutshell
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is just one of over 100 chemical compounds that can be found in the cannabis plant. CBD has become known for its remarkable anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits and has been widely used for years to treat a multitude of conditions. So why all the fuss and controversy? Studies continue to find positive outcomes and it’s hard to deny the numerous accounts of success stories people are sharing. Not only does CBD offer a natural alternative to medication and the risk of dependency, it has also been noted there are no adverse side effects either.
Will I Get High By Using a CBD Product?
Not to be confused with THC, the chemical compound from the plant that alters your mental state, CBD is not psychoactive and will not result in a “high.” In fact, research has found that CBD actually works WITH the receptors in your brain and the immune system to help alleviate pain and reduce inflammation by actually helping to regulate the pain. Studies have found that the use of CBD does not cause one to become dependent nor does one start to build up a tolerance, so you will not find yourself needing to increase your dosage.
Who Is It Helping?
From athletic injuries to chronic back pain, many people have reported success when managing their pain with CDB products, such as oils, edibles, and creams. Studies have shown CBD has been able to help chronic pain sufferers and has even helped alleviate pain in Multiple Sclerosis patients by somewhat reducing the painful muscle spasms often seen with MS.
Arthritis is also a condition that has seemed to benefit from CBD use. With well over 50 million Americans suffering from arthritis pain, learning that CBD products may subdue this pain leaves many hopeful.
Chronic back pain studies are noting that sufferers are seeing potentially positive results from CBD use. It has even been credited with relieving back pain for those with scoliosis; the curving of the spine, typically in an S or C shape. More studies are being done to dive deeper into the benefits of CBD use for scoliosis, since most suffer from ongoing back pain, even after corrective measures have been taken.
It is important to note there may be side effects such as a possible change in appetite, tiredness or diarrhea. Consult your doctor if you have underlying health conditions or prescription combination concerns.

Another great pain management option is using a CBD cream or lotion.

CBD oils are made from industrial hemp. The compound is extracted, then mixed with what is known as a carrier oil, such as coconut oil. CBD oils are usually a higher potency and are able to be made into may various products. It can be applied directly to the skin for quick absorption and faster pain management relief. CBDPure Hemp Oil is a great option and is offered in 3 strength levels. Oils can be ingested as well, through products such as CBDFx Vape Oil Additive or by dropper under the tongue.
