Most people try to minimize the number of pharmaceuticals they consume. In some cases, it’s completely unavoidable, but in others, there are choices.

Pharmaceuticals, in many cases are addictive, and they often come with a laundry list of side effects. Some of the side effects are dangerous, others can even be deadly.

Furthermore, pharmaceuticals can also cause unexpected harm to others and the environment. According to ScienceDirect, “Medication usage frequently results in the collateral introduction to the environment (via excretion and bathing) of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), bioactive metabolites, and reversible conjugates.”

Understanding your choices means getting educated about your condition and alternative, all natural treatment options. Consider chronic pain, a recognized medical condition with 3 million reported cases per annum. Oftentimes it is treated with addictive opioids.

Opioids are commonly prescribed because they are effective in relieving many types of pain. These medications are classified as narcotics and can be dangerous when abused. When used properly, opioids such as morphine have long been known to help the severe pain that follows surgery and to alleviate the suffering of people with advanced cancer. Recently, morphine and similar drugs have been used to treat chronic pain not caused by cancer. For many people, they have been remarkably helpful; for others, it either hasn’t worked or has created problems over time.

Opioids and Chronic Pain

But are opioids the only option? Recent research has shown that Cannabidiol or CBD has been an effective treatment for some people with chronic pain.

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is used by some people with chronic pain. CBD oil may reduce pain, inflammation, and overall discomfort related to a variety of health conditions. CBD oil is a product made from cannabis. It’s a type of cannabinoid, a chemical found naturally in marijuana and hemp plants. It doesn’t cause the “high” feeling often associated with cannabis, which is caused by a different type of cannabinoid called THC.

Studies on CBD oil and pain management have shown a great deal of promise. CBD can offer an alternative for people who have chronic pain and rely on more dangerous, habit-forming medications like opioids. But there needs to be more research in order to verify the pain-relieving benefits of CBD oil.

Using CBD Oil for Pain Management: Does It Work?

CBD is amazing. One of its strengths, is that it can be used in a variety of forms.

Because of the way that CBD acts in the body, it has many potential uses. CBD oil is taken orally, rubbed on the skin, and sometimes inhaled through vapor or used intravenously to produce its effects.

CBD oil: Uses, health benefits, and risks

Due to it’s flexibility, a CBD product like TheraJoy Organic CBD Salve can easily be applied directly to the afflicted area.

How does CBD help?

Researchers think that CBD interacts with receptors in your brain and immune system. Receptors are tiny proteins attached to your cells that receive chemical signals from different stimuli and help your cells respond. This creates anti-inflammatory and painkilling effects that help with pain management. This means that CBD oil may benefit people with chronic pain, such as chronic back pain.

Using CBD Oil for Pain Management: Does It Work?

CBD can help with more than just chronic pain too. A recent Medical News Today article highlighted a short list of some of the newly recognized benefits of CBD.

  • Natural pain relief or anti-inflammatory properties
  • Quitting smoking and drug withdrawals
  • Epilepsy and other mental health disorders
  • Helps fight cancer
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Acne
  • Alzheimer’s disease

CBD, when derived from hemp, is now legally available in all 50 states, and over 40 countries around the world (including Canada and the UK). With so many benefits, and the fact that “CBD oil doesn’t pose significant risks for users” according to Debra Rose Wilson, PhD, MSN, RN, IBCLC, AHN-BC, CHT at Healthline, CBD is something you should be considering.

TheraJoy Organic CBD Salve is a great way to guarantee you are always getting the highest does of 99% pure CBD. We combine 99% pure, non-GMO CBD derived from hemp with 100% organic coconut oil. This creates a 100% all-natural, organic, vegan, gluten-free and kosher product that you can apply directly to the afflicted area to maximize its effectiveness.

Chronic Pain Management with CBD

Summary:

One of the most exciting things about CBD is it’s potential for pain management, and the more we learn about CBD, the more potential we see. However, it’s important to understand how CBD effects you and where the CBD you consume comes from; both are important in maintaining healthy endocannabinoid levels.

Before you select your next CBD product, take the time to compare and contrast it against its competitors; it’s an important step that shouldn’t be missed considering the fact that you plan on consuming it. We encourage you to understand product differences such as CBD isolates vs. CBD oils. We are confident, that when you do, you will always find TheraJoy to be the superior product, both in terms of CBD purity and in terms of CBD volume.

One of the most exciting things about CBD is it’s potential for pain management. The more we learn about CBD and how it interacts with our physiology, the more potential we can see. Even the FDA recently recognized that CBD was “beneficial.”

People typically rely on over-the-counter and prescription drugs to ease stiffness and pain. Natural pain relief is among the major benefits of CBD. It provides a natural alternative for reducing pain Cannabinoids have proven to be useful in modulating pain by restricting neuronal transmission along pain pathways.

Published studies indicate that CBD is able to significantly suppress pain without adverse effects. CBD is a therapeutic agent that can be used to treat conditions that are associated with chronic pain such as fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis.

The Study of Cannabidiol (CBD)

CBD has been under study for some time now, just consider the work of Dr. Ethan Russo which was discussed in this recent article by Maria Grusauskas:

Dr. Ethan Russo has been studying CBD for two decades, and in 2001 introduced the concept of clinical endocannabinoid deficiency. “If you don’t have enough endocannabinoids, you have pain where there shouldn’t be pain,” said Russo in a recent interview with Project CBD.

In other words, explains [Dr. Michelle] Bean, “When we don’t have a healthy endocannabinoid tone, our pain threshold starts to diminish. So stimuli that would typically not induce pain or disease starts to induce pain and disease.”

Organic Cannabidiol (CBD)

This is very exciting research for anyone afflicted with chronic pain; however, as the article continues, the author points out that not all CBD products are created equal.

As CBD becomes widely available at health food stores, Bean cautions consumers to choose organically-sourced, non-GMO products.

Avoiding “Fly-by-Night” Operations

I find it hard to disagree, yet with more and more “fly-by-night” operations selling CBD on-line, it can be difficult for consumers to find reputable products. At TheraJoy, we’ve been proudly standing by our products for two years. Our products always use 99% pure CBD derived from non-GMO hemp and 100% pure organic coconut oil. This means our product is always 100% organic, vegan, gluten-free, and kosher. It also means our product is 100% legal to use and ship in the United States, Canada, and Europe.

The word is getting out about CBD and people are literally lining up to try it; residents in the Tri-State Area (NY, NJ, and CT) definitely were. All it took was a local news report to get the word out and Adele’s Naturally in Evansville was swamped with people who were “eager to see if it [CBD] would work for their pain.”

The line at Adele’s Naturally in Evansville was wrapped around the inside of the store, shocking a small local business.

After our first report aired on Tuesday, the store ran out of CBD oil products, which is why many people from the Tri-State lined up today to try them.

Many people told Eyewitness News they were eager to see if it would work for their pain or anxiety.

Cannabidiol (CBD) Purity

As excited as all those people were to try CBD, I have to point out that according to the referenced article, they were all lining up for CBD oil products. TheraJoy is made using CBD isolates, not CBD oil.

This is a very important distinction because it impacts the purity and volume of CBD. Current technology limits the purity of CBD oil to about 60%. In comparison, CBD isolates are much purer; CBD isolates, such as the CBD isolate found in TheraJoy can test in excess of 99% pure.

If you are afflicted with chronic pain, then consider TheraJoy. While we can’t guarantee CBD will work for your particular pain, we can guarantee that TheraJoy Organic CBD Salve is an effective way to deliver CBD directly to the afflicted areas. We offer purity you can trust, guaranteed, and as I mentioned earlier in the article, we are always made with 99% CBD derived from medical grade, non-GMO hemp, sourced directly from Switzerland.
