Natural methods of chronic pain relief are important for two reasons.
First of all, taking pain medication regularly for an extended time is very hard on the body and can affect digestion and absorption of nutrients. This can result in more health problems further down the line that may not even be connected to the prolonged use of pain medication.
Second, most drugs lose effectiveness over time so dosage needs to be increased dragging the health down even farther and faster.
The good thing with natural chronic pain formulas is that when you find an effective one, it will retain effectiveness, so it can help you permanently and not affect your health negatively. Just some of the reasons more people are turning to natural answers to health problems.
Over time, drugs can affect the whole system but the organs most associated with eliminating toxins and waste from the body are usually the most affected. That's why liver and kidney function is affected so much by man-made drugs. That's why so many prescription drugs now carry warning labels about liver and kidney damage.
These organs are the ones mainly responsible for eliminating toxins from the body.
Cannabinoids are the active substances that provide the easing of chronic pain as well as the other beneficial health effects associated with cannabis sativa (hemp & marijuana) plants.
The most well known cannabinoid is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the compound that gives the euphoric feeling.
CBD (Cannabidiol) is the cannabinoid used in most health enhancing products and it does not produce the psychoactive (getting high) properties like THC. CBD oil comes in many types of products - ingestibles, oils for vaporizers, topical formulas and also formulas for pet health.
CBD is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is the main compound used for chronic pain relief.
There are well over 100 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant and other cannabinoids are being studied for their effects, in addition to CBD. One of them is called CBG. We will also be providing information on CBG as well as the latest research on other cannabinoids as research info becomes available.
Humans and animals have a cell receptor system called the endocannabinoid system. This is a group of signalling chemicals that acts on brain and immune system receptors. Some of the plant cannabinoids such as CBD act on these same receptors resulting in beneficial health effects.
Scientists discovered the endocannabinoid system while trying to understand the effects of cannabis and that's how it was named.
Cannabinoid receptors play important roles in many body processes. They are involved in metabolic regulation, pain, anxiety, cravings, bone growth and immune function.
Although CBD oils are used for many health conditions, in regard to pain alone, they could greatly reduce the use of narcotics and simultaneously decrease the number of accidental painkiller overdosing. Accidental pain killer death is one of the most common causes of preventable death in America.
The synthetic version of marijuana has dangerous side effects. Stroke, brain damage, kidney damage, cardiac issues, tachycardia, psychosis and hypokalemia to name a few.
The endocannabinoid system is involved in regulating many body functions. That's why cannabinoids can have many powerful effects on health - not just pain relief.
Known functions affected are listed below and more likely to be discovered with further research.
