CBD Pills for Pain Management
Much has been discussed in recent times about the many potential benefits and medical uses of cannabis and the various compounds it contains. One such compound is known as cannabidiol, which preliminary research shows to have the potential to be an effective treatment against numerous diseases and other health problems. However, one area where there is conclusive evidence about CBD’s benefits is in terms of pain management. In fact, CBD oil or hemp oil has been shown to have powerful pain relief properties.
CBD Oil vs. Conventional Pain Relievers
The problem with many conventional pain-management techniques is that they involve the use of potentially habit-forming pills, most notable prescription opiates. Many places in the United States and around the world are currently in the midst of a huge opiate epidemic, which is mostly brought on by the rampant use of opiate pain medications.
Unlike these opiates, pure hemp oil has been repeatedly proven to be 100 percent safe. With hemp oil, there is no reason to worry about any potentially dangerous side effects. Better still, science has also shown that pure hemp oil and cannabis in general are not physically addictive unlike the opiate medications typically prescribed by doctors.
Cannabidiol also has another major benefit in the fact that it is all natural. Although some opiates are still derived directly from opium, the vast majority of prescription opiates are synthetic chemicals derived in a lab. The fact that CBD is naturally derived makes it a much better alternative and there are many who claim that it could hold the key to finally ending America’s opiate addiction epidemic.
Further adding to the benefits is the fact that the chemical is not psychoactive. Unlike tetrahydracannabinol or THC, the substance in cannabis that contributes to feelings of euphoria (i.e. makes you feel ‘high’), CBD has no psychoactive properties. This means that it can be effective at pain management without causing you to feel any undesirable other effects. In fact, this is another thing that sets it apart from the various opiate medications as these also cause you to experience a ‘high’ feeling.
All of this makes CBD oil an outstanding choice for anyone suffering from chronic issues. Luckily, the laws are finally beginning to change so that more and more people can take advantage of all the potential benefits that this natural chemical provides.
