One of the most common questions we get here at Cannasol Labs, the makers of NanoSoluble water soluble CBD, is whether or not CBD-based products can provide relief from pain. The millions of Americans who suffer from chronic pain due to some illness, injury or condition are especially interested in CBD oil as an alternative to prescription pain relievers.
The Challenge of Chronic Pain
“Chronic pain has been linked to numerous physical and mental conditions and contributes to high health care costs and lost productivity,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports. Studies, they say, estimate that anywhere between 11 percent and 40 percent of us have or have had experience with chronic pain. “Chronic pain, one of the most common reasons adults seek medical care, has been linked to restrictions in mobility and daily activities, dependence on opioids, anxiety and depression, and poor perceived health or reduced quality of life.”
Research on CBD and Pain Relief
According to U.S. News & World Report, “The research on CBD for pain relief is promising, but nascent.” They point to a number of studies conducted using animals that inspire hope. One study, which was published in the European Journal of Pain, demonstrated the positive effect of topical CBD on the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis.
The magazine also points to further research: “In a recent study published in the journal Pain, Dr. Gabriella Gobbi and colleagues suggested that low-dose CBD was effective at reducing pain and anxiety by interfering with a neurotransmitter linked to both.”
Perhaps more telling is the anecdotal evidence that U.S. News & World Report shares. “Mitchell Roth, a film producer in San Francisco, goes as far as to credit CBD for breaking his wife’s addiction to opioids, which she originally used to manage pain related to endometriosis,” they say.
