Whether acute or chronic - CBD relieves pain

Pain has many facesIn Germany, several million people live with chronic pain. The published numbers fluctuate. Ten to 25 percent of all Germans are exposed to regular pain - this corresponds to about eight to 20 million people. The statistics are therefore relatively inaccurate, because many pain patients do not go to the doctor with their suffering. Some are afraid of being laughed at, others have given up their fight because they have not gotten better after a long odyssey, yet others do not want to be permanently dependent on harmful medicines.The reasons for pain are so complex that they can not all be listed here. Medicine distinguishes between acute and chronic pain. Acute pain occurs suddenly and does not last very long. They are even useful because they signal to the body that something is wrong. Only then can the cause be identified and remedied. Chronic pain starts from a minimum of three to six months. They are no longer useful, but reduce the quality of life of the person affected. Frequently a chronic pain is caused by inflammation, tension, chronic illness or nerve damage. Even acute pain can be attributed to such causes. However, they are also often caused by injuries - both internal and external - or illnesses. If the cause of acute pain is not resolved quickly, there is a risk that acute pain will turn into chronic pain. In addition, strong, persistent pain sensitizes the body to further pain. The nerves react "exaggerated" in the episode, even if the cause of the initial pain has already been eliminated. Whether a pain becomes chronic or not depends, among other things, on the patient's disposition, family environment and mental state.CBD has been shown to be effective against pain in several studies. The Cannabinoid combats several causes of pain, rather than simply suppressing the feeling of pain, the latter also belongs to the repertoire of cannabidiol.CBD fights painIn tissue injury, CBD increases the concentration of anandamide in the body. This occurs through the interaction of the cannabinoid with the receptors of the human endocannabinoid system. Ananadamide is an endogenous endocannabinoid that is directly produced by the body, which directly affects the pain. The more anandamide in the organism or around the injured area, the better the pain relief. Ananadamide binds to the CB1 receptor (cannabinoid-binding receptor) and to the TRPV1 (a vanilloid) receptor, where it immediately combats the pain. This finding was made by scientists in China in 2010, when they performed experiments on mice.CBD helps against inflammationInflammation is often the cause of pain. Inflamed tissue increases the number of free radicals. These are dangerous for the body, as they have, among other things, the property of damaging cells. CBD is an antioxidant. In this function, it has a similar effect to vitamins A, C and E: they trap free radicals and thus render them harmless.In addition, CBD also has an anti-inflammatory effect per se. For example, a study by GWPharmaceuticals showed that CBD's properties can help fight inflammatory conditions in the intestinal tract, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and nausea.Researchers at the University of Mississippi found that CBD reduces oxidative stress and helps fight inflammation. Many other studies - such as those of the scientists of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda (USA) - all led to the same result: Cannabidiol inhibits inflammation. In Bethesda, researchers also confirmed that CBD works effectively against neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is caused by dysfunction or nerve injury and can sometimes be very severe.CBD protects the nervesCannabidiol not only works against neuropathic pain, but has been shown to protect against the death of nerve cells - such as ischemic stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Huntington's disease and other chronic nervous disorders. The neuroprotective (nerve-protective) effect of CBD has been demonstrated both in living organisms and in test tubes. Apparently, anandamide and 2-AG (2-arachidonylglycerol, another endocannabinoid) play an important role. In a traumatic brain injury, substances are released that can lead to secondary brain damage. In 2002 Mechoulem et al. Annanadamide and 2-AG can inhibit the action of harmful substances. The endocannabinoid system together with the cannabinoids thus takes over a protective function here. As described above, CBD contributes to the proliferation of anandamide in the body and thus protects the nerves. CBD relaxes the body and works against stressWhile the cannabinoid THC works primarily on the psyche, CBD has a relaxing and regulating effect on the body. Cannabidiol has an anticonvulsant effect, which is why it is sometimes used to combat epilepsy. Tense muscles often cause pain such as back, head, menstrual and other pains. But also CBD has positive effects on the psyche: It can be used well for the treatment of depression and schizophrenia. But it also helps against insomnia and stress. Stress is the cause of many pain disorders. Anyone who manages to reduce his stress often notices an accompanying pain relief. CBD combats the causesIn addition to inflammation, stress, tension and nerve disorders, CBD can be used against many other diseases. To name just a few:sleep disordersBurnoutanxiety disordersepilepsyschizophreniaNausea and vomitingDependence on addictive substancesParkinsonCrohn's diseasearthritisdifferent cancersspasticityasthmaCBD not only combats the pain as symptoms of disease, but acts - as a variety of different studies have revealed - against the causes themselves. For this reason alone, cannabidiol is likely to be a healthy alternative to the synthetic drugs of the pharmaceutical giants in the long term. These usually only suppress the pain. For the fight against causes additional medicines must be taken. Most painkillers and most prescription medicines, which are not natural but man-made, are harmful to the liver and kidneys - especially if taken over a long period of time. CBD, on the other hand, does not have a great health-endangering side-effect because it comes from nature and is very similar to human cannabinoids. Unfortunately, CBD research is still in its infancy. There are first drugs based on CBD. Overall, however, the science knows too little about the exact modes of action of cannabidiol. Questions such as "What helps CBD?" Could already be clarified well. But on the "How exactly does CBD?" There are only insufficient results. In the future, CBD is likely to play a bigger role in medicine - the current state of knowledge suggests strongly. Even though there are only very few CBD drugs worldwide so far, every human being in this country has the opportunity to treat themselves with CBD oil and other CBD products. CBD is not prescription, therefore legally available. For safety, always consult a doctor who is familiar with CBD. Application and dosage vary from person to person. In principle, with a little patience, everyone will find the right dose for themselves, as long as he starts small and slowly increases it until the desired effect begins. This makes CBD a good supplement to conventional pain therapy. With a bit of luck, some pain patients can even replace their existing funds with CBD altogether. A trial (under medical supervision) would be worth it. Source: SOMMER, Kathrin.

Regular pain: CBD helps

CBD relaxes and relieves crampsWhile most of the average 28-day cycle is relatively calm and normal, the uterine muscles begin to contract just before the menstrual period. These contractions interrupt blood flow in the abdomen. It is precisely this interruption that causes more pain in one woman and less pain in the other. Happy are those who do not suffer at all. In some girls and women, however, the pain is so unbearable that they therefore even fail in everyday life, so must report to the employer sick or can not go to sports. In Germany, therefore, many patients resort to analgesics such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Others prefer to take antispasmodic drugs from the pharmacy. However, this is more of a permanent solution with two eyes closed, as this type of medication has negative effects on the body. For example, they strain the kidneys when taken regularly. Some pain sufferers now stick electrodes instead to the skin. By light surges, the muscles should relax and provide relief. While some swear by it, others complain about the annoying feeling of having to walk around the bikini area with electrode stickers, where one can not move quite as freely during the days anyway. Often, young women are prescribed the pill to prevent the unpleasant side effects of menstruation. However, it is artificially intervened in the hormone balance to prevent ovulation. The cannabinoid CBD is according to the current state of research free of side effects. It naturally acts on the human endocannabinoid system. This expands throughout the body and even produces various cannabinoids to keep the immune system intact. However, this system is prone to disorders such as illness and stress - the latter is also caused by pain. By administering CBD in the form of oil or capsules, the inner balance can be restored. CBD has a relaxing, anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory effect. For menstrual problems, it is therefore a good treatment option. Since it contains virtually no THC and therefore does not have an intoxicating effect, women who suffer from period pain can obtain CBD legally and without a prescription. Different types of menstrual pain and their causes The female cycle is determined by different hormones. The goal is to prepare the body for possible reproduction. Therefore, the uterine lining builds up in the first half of the cycle. It is well supplied with blood and thick or short: ready for the implantation of the fertilized egg. However, if there is no fertilization and thus no pregnancy, the mucosa dissolves in the second half of the cycle after ovulation from the uterus. The excretion takes place during the period. After the menstrual period, the circulation starts again, so the menstrual pain occurs every month again. Generally, a distinction is made between primary and secondary menstrual pain. The primary menstrual pain falls into the category of "natural", which is pain that occurs during the menstrual period, without any pathological change in the female body. The women who suffer from primary periodic pain have been fighting this problem since puberty. Secondary menstrual pain primarily affects older women and is mostly due to illness. Changes in the female reproductive system often cause painful days. Such changes include, for example, endometriosis (small, benign growths in the abdomen), uterine infections, and ovarian cysts. Frequently by these diseases not only the intensity of bleeding increases, but also pain. In general, there are various factors, besides malformations or diseases, which can aggravate menstrual pain. These include a low body weight, an irregular or longer than average cycle, the consumption of alcohol and nicotine, the prevention of pregnancy with the help of the spiral, stress or other psychological causes. Symptoms of menstrual painMany readers know her too well - the typical symptoms of menstrual cramps: cramping and tearing in the abdomen. The pain can follow at short intervals, be regular or prolonged, and can be up to the back. Often, digestion is also affected during the period, so some women suffer from diarrhea or nausea. Even headaches can be part of the discomfort. Anyone who is in constant pain and uncomfortable will eventually get into a bad mood. In addition, fatigue, fatigue and lower concentration or performance are added to this. Many women would therefore just like to lie in the hot tub or with a hot water bottle on the stomach on the couch and wait for the first two, so the worst days, pass as quickly as possible. Different forms of CBD for menstrual pain Not only hot baths and hot water bottles relax the cramped uterus, but also sex. But after a suitable partner is not always and everywhere available and women can not spend hours in the bathroom, it makes sense to relax the body in other ways. CBD has anti-spasmodic properties, reduces stress and relaxes, and therefore relieves menstrual pain. Already Queen Victoria's doctor, Sir Joshua Reynolds, knew about the beneficial effects of the cannabis plant and ordered the majesty a suitable cannabis tincture against her menstrual pain. Women in Asia and Africa have also been relying on natural pain relief from cannabis products for centuries. In our society, the use and research of cannabinoids has long been neglected by the illegalization of the hemp plant. However, countries such as the US and Canada are now turning around and the research and production of various cannabis products is evidently progressing inexorably. Europe is slowly catching up. The US actress Whoopi Goldberg has recognized the trend and together with the food manufacturer Maya Elisabeth sells medical cannabis products under the name "whoopi & maya", which are tailored to women with regular pains. In addition to cannabis tinctures and ointments, the ladies also offer a bath additive and chocolate with the corresponding active ingredients. In liberal California and the US state of Colorado, pain-stricken women enjoy the so-called cannabis tampons, which are marketed under the name of Foria Relief. Actually, this product is not really a tampon, but a suppository, which is introduced before using a tampon. Within 15 to 30 minutes, the suppository dissolves, so that the active ingredients are absorbed by the vaginal mucosa. In Germany, the suppositories are not yet available because they contain besides ten milligrams of legal CBD also 60 milligrams of psychoactive THC. Many women reported having a relaxing effect and pain relief after about eight minutes. The THC can be detected by the usual drug tests in the body. Medically sound studies on Foria Relief are pending. We also have medical cannabis products on prescription from the pharmacy. These are mainly used in palliative medicine. In menstrual pain, it would be extremely difficult to find a doctor and a health insurance company who would participate in a prescription. The legal alternative is CBD. In the form of oil, you can either take cannabidiol orally or drip one or two drops on a tampon to make it easier to get it right where it's needed. Instructions for buying CBD productsTo minimize the unwanted ingestion of any pollutants, attention should be paid to the bio-seal when purchasing CBD products. Oils should contain at least 99 percent pure CBD. When manufacturing, it is important to keep an eye on ensuring that the products are as close as possible to the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice for Medicines) and ISO standards so that they are of a certain quality. Court decision regarding cannabis use against menstrual painAt this point the readers should not be deprived of the court order of 4 January 2017 from Baden-Württemberg: A woman who regularly consumed cannabis for six to seven days a month - the intoxicating THC variant, not the pure CBD - wanted to deprive the driving license authority of their driving license. In an urgent procedure, however, the Freiburg administrative court ruled that the woman was allowed to keep her driver's license for the time being. The reasoning was that the person concerned would firstly have not combined consumption and driving, and secondly, they would not take cannabis regularly. Even if the consumption was monthly over several days, the woman did not take THC-containing products on the menstruation-free days and therefore did not fulfill the conditions necessary for a driving license withdrawal.The decision may be understood as a positive sign in the direction of cannabis for pain relief. Source: SOMMER, Kathryn.

Cannabis products for external use

We now know that the use of cannabis has health benefits. We can treat bowel disease with cannabis, fight colon cancer or relieve spasmodic symptoms. In addition, the effect of cannabis is also applicable to a great many other ailments, but the effects have not been completely investigated. Whether one eventually smokes or otherwise consumes the grass is up to the consumer.If you do not want to smoke, you can inject it through the skin, in the form of oil, through the food, or in finished foods. The possibilities are more or less open to us. A first step has already been taken with the legalization by prescription, even if it is only really recognized and serious diseases. The normal migraine patient will hardly get legal cannabis. That's a pity, but maybe that will change. Today, however, we are enriching ourselves with yet another effect of cannabis, namely the positive effects on our skin. The products are largely legally available.Effectiveness of THC and CBD confirmedClinical trials and numerous laboratory tests have now confirmed the efficacy of cannabis ingredients. It was investigated to what extent cannabis products can help against skin redness, inflammation, psoriasis, open wounds, acne or other skin diseases. Of course, the cannabis does not need to be smoked, but can be purchased legally in lotions, balms, oils or patches. We are looking forward to a product test in this regard and hope to be able to say more about exact products soon.Actually, people knew back in antiquity that cannabis and certain plant components help against skin diseases. For this reason, cannabis was mixed with other plants, herbs or animal extracts and prepared ointments. In today's laboratory tests, the effect was confirmed, because the cannabinoids increase the biochemical defenses of the skin. Unfortunately, we can not say much about exactly how cannabinoids do this and stimulate the healing process, because unfortunately research is not yet far enough. But the fact is that it helps and acts against a disease infestation of the skin.Acne and skin irritations - effects and resultsCannabinoids can reduce and even completely combat inflammation in the skin's sebaceous glands. Skin glands ensure that the skin is coated with sufficient natural fats. If the glands produce too much sebum, skin disorders or acne often occur. Cannabinoids have been proven to help against acne, eczema and other skin disorders. And again it was the mice that proved these theories. However, it is not just the cannabinoids that are good for our skin. The extracts of cannabis seeds, for example, reduced skin redness of subjects. These seeds contain proteins, oils and antioxidants to help against pimples.Skin care products are experiencing an upswingCannabis-enriched lotions are increasingly being sold and more and more people are experiencing the beneficial effects. Balsams, oils, gels or transdermal patches containing CBD, THC or terpene can be purchased. The cannabis preparations contain various substances, so that the skin can absorb the essential ingredients well. For example, the creams contain certain herbs to actively ensure intake. The products can be applied directly to the inflamed area and locally controlled.Will not you get high on it?No, because the ointments do not reach the bloodstream or the nervous system, whereby no high-effect can be experienced. The contained cannabinoids can bind with the CB2 receptors and act on the peripheral level.-> If you like, you can make your own CBD ointment yourself. All you need is cutaways, stalks and a few small buds. These are enriched with coconut oil and beeswax. We will work out a more exact recipe and of course publish it. Dermatitis and psoriasis are the perfect areas of application and you will see fast results. But even with sore muscles or against arthritis and for other pain relief help the homemade ointments.Patients and doctors should go new waysThe experiences of physicians and patients are becoming more and more frequent and also various official studies are proving more and more the positive effects on different processes. Relieving skin problems could be a breakthrough for cannabis products. In the US, various cannabis products are already being used to relieve symptoms such as fibromyalgia, ALS, sunburn, open wounds or migraine. The modes of action are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, the properties of cannabis there are widely recognized. What works there can not be wrong here, right?Found a new drug?Now another active substance is to be held responsible for the positive effects on our organism, namely the so-called CBG. An active ingredient that can help against acne and skin aging.Of course, we must point out here that cannabis is not a panacea and you should always discuss your treatment with a doctor. At least you could ask in advance if self treatment with various cannabis products makes sense. Source: DIRSCHL, Jenny. Cannabisprodukte zur äußeren Anwendung. 17 feb, 2017.
