CBD for pain
The main reason is that the drugs available for pain management today are ineffective or come with an array of risks and side effects that would be best avoided.
The most common category of over-the-counter painkillers today are called NSAIDs, or non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These are the drugs that most of us use when we’re getting a fever, come down with a headache, injure ourselves, or wake up with inexplicable aches and pains.
The problem is that many of the drugs, such as ibuprofen, Aleve, or Advil, are not safe for long term use.
When used for extended periods of time, NSAIDs can damage our digestive health, increase our risk of stroke and heart attacks, result in kidney damage and worst of all - inhibit muscle growth. These side effects are particularly worrisome if you’re someone who uses painkillers often, such as people with chronic pain, frequent headaches, or athletes wanting to ignore wear-and-tear or moderate injuries on a regular basis.
#CBD May be a great way for your to ditch the pain killers, especially if it is found in full spectrum hemp oil.
