It is difficult to miss the CBD phenomenon. A natural hemp-based treatment, this cannabis compound has no narcotic effect but effectively relieves acute or chronic pain.
If cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is a cannabis compound, it’s not there to get you high!
Presented in the form of flowers, capsules or oil, CBD is one of the most popular natural remedies for sleep and anxiety problems. Several studies also confirm its
effectiveness in relieving certain types of pain.
Acute pain, an alarm signal
All the messages of our body are useful to us. Acute pain also plays an important role. It corresponds to a warning of a malfunction in the body.
It is the receptors on our skin and organs, the nociceptors, which are stimulated and send a message to the nervous system. Then it is the brain’s turn to interpret this message.
Acute pain, such as that induced by a burn for example, will provoke a reflex response to remove the hand from the hot surface. If the pain has been present for more than three
months, it becomes chronic. It then loses its primary warning function and must be treated.
In fact, chronic pain affects the quality of life on a daily basis. Moreover, it can cause sleep disorders, anxiety and even depression.
A personalised dosage
It is not really possible to recommend a precise dosage of CBD for pain relief. After all, there are several parameters to be taken into account.
We are all different – some of us will be very sensitive to cannabinoids while others will need higher doses. The pain itself will give an indication of the dose to be taken.
In any case, whether you have already taken CBD oil for other problems such as anxiety relief or are new to the subject, we advise you to test with a low dose first
