American Made Pain Relief

Although many people use an assortment of different products to relieve their pain, many of them do not know where the products originated and so do not know of their effectiveness or their safety for taking. This is not the case with a relatively new product for the relief of muscle pain as CBD Muscle Cream is just one of several American-made CBD products from American CBD.

American CBD takes advantage of the new discovery of how to identify the different properties found in the various different cannabinoids contained in the hemp plant. Hemp, of course, is better known as marijuana, weed or cannabis and it is the cannabinoids in this plant which contain THC which gives it its bad reputation.

CBD, a shortened name for Cannabidiol is something which can be beneficial to health whilst THC which is the shortened name for tetrahydrocannabinol which can be detrimental to health but both are found in the cannabinoids of the same plant. Until now it had not been possible to determine which cannabinoids contained what and so any benefits gained from taking hemp for its CBD, had been subject to the side-effects from THC.

The side effects associated with hemp were probably known by the Ancient Egyptians who are known to have used hemp for medical purposes as many as 4000 years ago but they probably thought the side-effects were minor, compared to the benefits it provided and almost every civilization since has been of the same opinion, until the 20th century.

It was when, in the 20th century, marijuana was taken widely especially for its adverse side effects, namely providing a high, that most countries in the world deemed it illegal to use or even grow hemp. Hemp though continued to be used illegally but today, with the newly obtained knowledge enabling the different cannabinoids to be segregated, hemp is once more becoming a legal plant for medical purposes, although its recreational use is still banned in most countries.

It is believed that hemp has the potential for even more health benefits and research is even carrying out to see if it can help cancer patients, perhaps not be a cure for cancer but at least reduce the suffering cancer patients go through. Research is also being carried out to create strains of hemp with no THC content and whilst they have so far been able to create strains with very little THC, they do hope that in the future hemp can be safely grown anywhere without it being grown for its THC content, making it ineffective for recreational use.

The hemp plant has the potential to be the most useful plant on the planet for human use as it not only has untold health benefits but also has the potential for other benefits. For example, instead of using wood to make paper products like napkins and toilet tissue, the pulp of hemp could be used instead, reducing deforestation and therefore improving the earth’s atmosphere.

Relieving Muscle Pain

Relieving chronic muscle pain has always been a problem for many people and those that have found a suitable medication have had to pay an expensive cost financially. Today, however, due to there now being a CBD muscle cream which is effective, the cost of finding a suitable solution has now been reduced significantly. The CBD in the name stands for Cannabidiol which is one of the harmless cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. The hemp plant to many of course is better known as cannabis or marijuana which possesses many different cannabinoids, some which have psychological effects which produce the ‘high’ but also many which can be beneficial to health with no side effects. CBD is, of course, one of the latter and is now available in the form of cream as a pain reliever approved by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

It has always been the potentially harmful cannabinoids which have caused hemp to become a banned substance but now that the good cannabinoids can be separated from the potentially harmful ones, hemp as a beneficial health product is becoming increasingly used by all branches of the medical profession. Hemp is easy to grow and also fast growing and so supplies of CBD are able to be used at a cheaper cost than many other medications and this is a further relief to those pain sufferers which have switched to its use.

There is, of course, no doubt that marijuana, as hemp is often referred to, can have effects which can be hazardous to health but some hemp is now being grown which has reduced quantities of THC which is the presence of in some cannabinoids that makes them potentially hazardous. There are many different types of cannabinoids, not just in hemp but elsewhere and even our own bodies produce some in order to maintain our health. Due to our bodies producing cannabinoids, our brains have developed special cannabinoid receptors so as to make better, more effective use of them. Unfortunately, that is probably one of the reasons harmful cannabinoids found in marijuana are able to be as effective on us as they are.

Now that CBD cream is available, many sufferers from temporary or long-term muscle pains can find a relatively inexpensive relief from their suffering. The use of other cannabinoids found in hemp is also being looked at by the medical profession to see what other benefits they may offer our health. So far CBD and other, similar cannabinoids have been found to help with Alzheimer’s Disease, ALS, many psychological disorders, Arthritis, diabetes, epilepsy, cancer, and seizures, heart disease, inflammation, Multiple Sclerosis, migraine headaches, ADD, ADHD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and further research is still being carried out.

Hemp, before its bad reputation, was used for many different purposes and not just medical purposes as it can provide oil, a replacement for many paper products such as toilet paper and numerous other products which can be beneficial to mankind, perhaps even helping to slow down global warming.
