How CBD alleviates pain

You probably didn’t know that your own body makes cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids. Your endocannabinoid system helps regulate your body’s systems and brings them back to homeostasis, or a stable state. For example, if you’re too hot, your endocannabinoid system alerts your body that it needs to cool down, and you start sweating. 

Preliminary studies on animals indicate that CBD oil affects the endocannabinoid system. You have many cannabinoid receptors in your central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. Because the receptors are in your nervous system, they affect pain signals. Researchers think that CBD oil or cream stimulates your body to use its own endocannabinoids more effectively to block pain. 

Studies that have tested CBD for chronic neuropathic pain find that it reduces the intensity of the pain, aids sleep, and lessens the pain’s psychological effects. Research on animals shows CBD is likely to calm arthritis pain. 

Evidence suggests CBD administered in oils and creams works more effectively than when taken orally. More robust research, including scientific clinical trials, is needed to confirm CBD oil as a proven treatment for chronic pain.
