CBD Oil For Pain Relief

Researchers have deduced that acute and chronic pain relief are among the top reasons people choose to supplement with CBD oil. According to studies, CBD oil can reduce both pain and inflammation by preventing the delivery of inflammatory agents like glutamate, which is known to cause damage to the brain. This has helped CBD oil to earn its title as a neuroprotective supplement.

CBD products have also been shown to enhance anandamide signalling. Commonly known as the ‘bliss molecule,’ anandamide is a cannabinoid naturally produced by a healthy body. It is responsible for  helping to regulate pain and is linked with feelings of well-being and happiness. CBD oil has been shown to improve anandamide signalling throughout the body.

CBD oil additionally targets alpha-3 glycine receptors, a process that can potentially suppress inflammation and chronic pain. Because these receptors also affect the way our bodies process pain, when not functioning effectively, pain is prolonged and intensified.

Vanilloid TRPV1 is yet another receptor which CBD syncs with in order to reduce disease-associated pain, inflammation, cancer pain and neuropathic pain. Studies have shown that when working together, TRPV1 supports CBD’s pain relief abilities even further.
