Hemp CBD oil reduces pain, inflammation, and overall discomfort related to many health conditions. It is a great alternative to pharmaceuticals since it is non-addictive and doesn’t give you that “high/groggy” feeling. CBD works by stopping the body from absorbing anandamide, a compound associated with regulating pain. Anandamide breaks down quickly in the body. As CBD halts the breakdown process of anandamide, this ultimately leads to increased levels of anandamide in the bloodstream reducing the amount of pain a person feels. Hemp CBD oil is a great option for people who suffer from chronic pain and rely on more addictive medications such as opioids. In addition, it is also a great alternative for over the counter meds, such as NSAIDs or Tylenol, which can be hard on your kidneys/liver and have other side effects if used for a period of time. It has also been found that people did not build up a tolerance to the effects of CBD, therefore they did not need to continually increase their dose. There are also no known side effects of using Hemp CBD oil and is a safe, natural pain med alternative.
In conclusion, CBD oil will benefit people who suffer from chronic/acute pain, arthritis, and pain associated with autoimmune diseases.
