We have already written that CBD acts against physical ailments such as pain. That is not to say that CBD is an acute painkiller like ibuprofen or a more potent drug like oxycodin. CBD oil helps against chronic pain and can attack the cause of pain if taken over an extended period of time. People with pain conditions such as rheumatism or osteoarthritis have good results in using CBD oil for pain relief. This is thanks to its healing effect in suppressing inflammatory and neuropathic pain. In a study it was found that cannabis oil also contributes to feeling relaxed and thus helps patients to reduce stress1. So, what can CBD oil mean for nerve pain and where does the positive effect come from?
What is Nerve Pain?
Nerve pain is a condition where the nerves are damaged. Once the nerves have been
damaged, nerve pain can occur. Unfortunately, these pains are chronic. The pain manifests itself in a number of ways: tingling, burning, cold and painful feelings and irritability. A study conducted in 2012 showed that CBD can suppress and thus reduce inflammatory and neuropathic (nerve) pain 2 . This research has been carried out on laboratory animals. In this research they talk about cannabinoids as a new type of organic and therapeutic agent that can be used in chronic pain. Lately, many people are looking for organic painkillers, as the medications they have tried or used contain a list of side effects. At some point the patients get rid of the pain, but also cannot recognize themselves anymore. A study from Israel showed that medicinal cannabis reduces pain and thus significantly improves the quality of life of patients 3 . They treated 274 patients with many pain conditions. After six months of use of medical cannabis the average pain
rate decreased from 83.3 to 75.0. Drug use also fell by 44 percent.
How does it work :CBD affects the body endocannabinoid system, and this system is responsible for the released pain stimuli, among other things. When this system is not in balance, these stimuli are not passed on properly and more pain is experienced than is actually present. When you use CBD oil, the cannabinoids in the system are replenished and rebalance your system. The stimulus transmission works better and this can make the pain disappear or ease.In nerve pain, CBD oil has a positive effect on symptoms, especially in the long term. The effect of cannabidiol on your body is normally not immediately felt in nerve pain. So it will not act as acute pain relief, but it can structurally reduce pain in the long term. Taken regularly, CBD oil can enable your body to reach homeostasis. This is the general balance between various bodily functions and processes that the body needs to survive. Furthermore, CBD has strong nerve regenerative properties and protects the nerves from further damage. CBD has a calming effect in painfully affected parts of the body, due to the anti-inflammatory effect of cannabidiol. These properties are noticed in frequent intake of CBD for nerve pain.
