CBD For Pain Relief
The endocannabinoid system is a network made up of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) and cannabinoids. Cannabinoids act upon the receptors found throughout our nervous systems to stimulate or inhibit pain signals. When the endocannabinoid system is functioning properly, nerve cells increase pain only when there is an injury that needs attention. In some cases, dysfunction with the cannabinoid system causes pain signals to be active in the nervous system even in the absence of damage.
CBD and Your Body
The body may not generate enough cannabinoids for the endocannabinoid system to work efficiently, preventing it from effectively regulating pain and inflammation. This is where CBD comes in! In situations like this, supplementing plant-based cannabinoids like CBD may help address the deficiency and improve its ability to function. By impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, inflammation and pain is reduced.
CBD stops the body from absorbing anandamide, a compound associated with regulating pain. Its anti-inflammatory mechanisms are unique and don’t work like most anti-inflammatory drugs, which makes CBD healthier for your heart!
CBD and Other Pain Relievers
Common pain relief medications like opioids have considerable side effects and are addictive. CB2 receptors indirectly stimulate opioid receptors. Therefore, cannabinoids may work to enhance opioid effects. This means that combining CBD and smaller doses of opioids could have the same effect as the original dose of opioids. This may reduce the number of opioids needed to relieve pain, which reduces the chances of addiction.
