CBD & Chronic Pain Relief
Chronic pain can be difficult to diagnose, manage, and treat, leaving patients without adequate relief. Unfortunately, patients are often told the cause is psychosomatic.
Pharmaceutical pain management options frequently result in undesirable side effects and developing tolerance, leading to a need for continually increased dosages.
Numerous studies have found CBD provides relief from chronic pain in animal models and pre-clinical trials. CBD may be especially helpful for those wishing to reduce their opioid use or where other forms of pain relief have failed.
A 2020 study, in particular, found that 94% of CBD users reported quality of life improvements within 8 weeks of use. Further, 53% of these chronic pain patients reduced or eliminated their opioid use in the same timeframe.
Researchers believe there is a strong possibility of CBD being used further to treat chronic pain.
