When it comes to pain relief, oftentimes we default to popping pills. It may not be a major issue if you just do it every once in awhile but many of us suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain tends to necessitate more frequent reliance on anti-inflammatory medications for pain relief. One problem is that in Western medicine, anti-inflammatory pain relief generally equates to Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen, naproxen and acetaminophen, which contribute to major health problems. According to the Mayo Clinic, some of the severe issues caused by long term use of NSAIDs can cause liver failure, heart attack and stroke.
If the medicine we rely on causes serious side effects, including death, what are our alternatives? Do we just live with constant pain?
There are many alternative solutions including diet, exercise and stretching that may be helpful but we’d like to discuss a miracle solution… CBD oil. It stands for cannabidiol, naturally found in hemp plants. It promotes wellness without any psychoactive or intoxicating effects. It is an active compound known as a cannabinoid.
Cannabinoids are the molecules which give the cannabis plant its medical and recreational properties. CBD is used more for its health purposes.
Cannabidiol can also be used topically. Skin and beauty products made from hemp are all natural and good for the skin. Many athletes enjoy using CBD salves on their joints and muscles before and after workouts to help with soothing aches and pains from rigorous exercise.
We recommend products with sustainable growth methods that produce the purest and most effective CBD oil. Although there are many fine products (and probably more bad products) out there, we do offer our own specially formulated CBD that included a transdermal agent known as DMSO. You can find our products in our shop on this website.
