For those with chronic pain and muscle soreness, CBD will change the way you manage daily living. As an anti-inflammatory, CBD helps to manage neuropathic pain and provides relief from muscle tension without adverse side effects.
There are many types of pain that CBD can assist with relieving:
Research shows CBD activates the 5-HT1A serotonin receptor, well-known for reducing anxiety. This receptor also influences addiction, appetite, sleep, pain perception, vomiting, and nausea.
Further study shows CBD impacts serotonin flow, reducing stimulation of the vomiting center in the brain.
Most lesions include nerve growth and pain. Some people deal with an even higher, more painful density of nerves.
The ECS helps regulate nerve growth, and CB1 receptors are found on the nerves innervating lesions. Interfering with nerve innervation can prevent receptor activation and future painful growths.
The ECS plays a big role in the reproductive tract. The endometrium has a significant source of cannabinoids, and AEA levels are high in the uterus.
Endocannabinoids are involved in regulating/preventing cell-migration. Research explores CBD and its ability to block the activation of the GPR18 receptor. GPR18 receptor activation can lead to migrating, nutrient-sucking cells.
Those with menstrual disorders like endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS, or ovarian cysts are turning to CBD more for relief.
CBD binds to the TRPV1 receptor, which controls pain perception, body temperature, and inflammation.
Activation of this receptor is common in the treatment of headaches and migraines. When CBD binds to TRPV1, it can influence pain perception and headaches caused by restricted blood vessels.
Research furthermore suggests many chronic migraine sufferers have clinical endocannabinoid deficiency.
Muscle and back pain
CBD is often used as a relaxant and antispasmodic for muscle spasms. It’s also regularly used as an anti-inflammatory. Some muscle and back pain is caused by spasms and other conditions. Sometimes it’s caused by inflammation, whether from nutrition, poor posture, stress, or more.
