Many people suffer from chronic pain, which is typically masked by the use of anti-inflammatory medicines and pain reducers. However, what many consumers of these drugs may not know is that they are capable of doing a lot of harm to their health, in some cases even resulting in death.


Fortunately, there is a natural solution for the reduction of reliance on these medicines: Cannabidiol (or CBD). Cannabidiol is a substance extracted from Cannabis, which fights pain, inflammation and helps to soothe sore muscles, as well as restore their functionality.

Chronic Pain: What is it And How Can You Treat it?


You might be wondering what the chronic pain is. Chronic pain can be divided into the following categories:


  • Nociceptive Pain: this type of pain is classified as an important biological function because it alerts the body of external or internal danger, reporting an injury or tissue damage (inflammation);
  • Neuropathic pain: this type of pain fits the lesions of the nerve fibers and the painful impulses come from the neuronal structures and not from the nerve endings;
  • Central Pain (or disorder of the central nervous system): more commonly known as Fibromyalgia, this is a chronic pain that spreads throughout the body, accompanied by fatigue and sleep disorders;
  • Past injuries: some old injuries can be traumatic and the pain is still present in the person’s daily life;
  • Joint injuries (such as arthritis): Joint wear, swelling, and pain are some of the symptoms a patient feels when having this injury;
  • Migraines and headaches: a migraine leaves the patient sensitive to light and noises and, in some cases, they can spend days in bed.

CBD has properties that help reduce these types of pain without causing damage to the nervous system and can be administered in two ways: orally (for example, by capsules or oil, in addition to other variations of edible items) and topically (for example, oil infused lotions). Both methods are known to weaken the symptoms that cause pain and discomfort.


The right dosage for each patient varies., Typically, the edible form is used to treat muscle inflammations and the topical form is most commonly used for joint problems. Remember to always talk to your doctor about the advantages and disadvantages of using CBD to relieve pain.
