We have found that CBD provides a wonderful alternative for patients who do not want to take pain or nerve medication. CBD has helped most of our patients experience pain relief from injury or nerve pain without the hassle or worry of taking pills. If you are experiencing pain and have had trouble with other medication, or just want an alternative to prescription medications, CBD gel is definitely worth trying.

There are more than 100 cannabinoids that have been identified in the marijuana plant. CBD and THC are the 2 that most people have heard of. CBD (cannabidiol) comes from the cannabis sativa plant. It has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Unlike its more famous sibling, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is used mostly for pain relief and will not get you “high.”

CBD stops the body from absorbing anandamide, a compound associated with regulating pain. So, increased levels of anandamide in the bloodstream may reduce the amount of pain a person feels.

CBD relieves pain and inflammation, can help with insomnia and relieve anxiety and depression. There are ongoing studies to determine whether CBD can help fight certain kinds of cancers, help to treat diabetes, calm epileptic seizures and help to heal heart ailments. There are studies ongoing throughout the world to determine all of the benefits CBD can provide.

CBD may help to relieve:

  • Pain and Inflammation
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Occasionally patients have reported feeling lethargic. Some patients have experienced stomach upset and loss of appetite with accompanying weight loss. There have also been a small percentage of patients that report weight gain with gel use. It is important to know that the side effects can happen with any medications, but reports of adverse reaction to CBD products are very rare and mild. More studies are needed to determine what side effects CBD has on the body over time.
