As more states pass laws legalizing forms of cannabis, we continually see more beneficial products hit the market that utilize cannabidiol (CBD), a derivative that can be traced back thousands of years.
There is often confusion between CBD and THC. The chemical compound with marijuana that creates the CBD is not psychoactive, and has a broad range of medicinal use. Anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and pain relief properties are just a few of the benefits, as well as being an antioxidant.
When used as a massage cream and in conjunction with massage therapy, there is a growing base of support for the many medical benefits CBD creates. Cannabinoid massage cream treatments have relieved symptoms for those suffering from arthritis, neurological disorders, broken bones, and overworked muscles.
Our bodies naturally produce endogenous cannabinoids, part of the most important physiologic system in our bodies to establish and maintain our health. Found throughout the body in our brain, organs, glands, immune cells, and connective tissue, endocannabinoids perform various tasks as cell receptors to regulate sleep, appetite, mood, immune function, pain, as well as many more areas.
Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids are established at the intersection of the body's various systems, providing communication between different cell types. For example, at the site of an injury, a cannabinoid can be found to decrease the release of activators and sensitizers to the injured area, stabilize the nerve cells, and calm the nearby immune cells to prevent release of pro-inflammatory. The ultimate goal is to minimize the pain and damage caused by the injury.
By using a CBD based massage cream on an injury, it will reduce pain and inflammation, allowing the area of the body to heal more quickly. This works for both chronic and acute pain. When applied topically, CBD massage cream will inhibit the pain receptors to your brain, lessening the pain. There are no harmful side effects, it is extremely safe to use, and completely legal in all 50 states.
CBD massage creams are becoming very prevalent in sports medicine clinics, in addition to spas because of their non-toxic and non-euphoric effects. The CBD oil in the massage cream has the ability to work its way deep into the tissues, making it great for musculoskeletal and joint pain relief.
Today’s public is looking for more alternatives to prescribed medicines, as well as organic and naturally derived products. They want safe, inexpensive treatments that promote self-healing and a better quality of life.
CDB oils and creams work well for all ages. While there is not a lot of scientific evidence available to back up its claims, there is clearly a growing need to incorporate the therapeutic benefits more. While not everyone will respond the same, there have been breakthroughs in pain treatment using CBD that have allowed patients to give up prescriptive narcotics and NSAIDs.
