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.
