CBD, or cannabidiol, is derived from the cannabis plant. It is non-psychoactive, with 0.3% or less of THC. Clinical research has found many therapeutic uses for CBD, with promising results for a number of health issues, including:

-Chronic Pain

-Acute Pain

-Seizures

-Depression and Mood

-Inflammation

-Headaches/Migraines

-Mental Disorders

-Anxiety and Stress

-Nausea

CBD is anti-inflammatory, with neuro-protective and anti-convulsant properties. Furthermore, CBD effects cannabinoid receptors in the human body, causing physiological changes with many positive health implications. One of the most notable of these is with regards to pain, both chronic and acute.

Over 1.5 billion people in the world suffer from chronic pain, including nearly 1/3 of adults in the United States. Chronic pain severely impacts quality of life, for many on a daily basis. Unfortunately, traditional methods of managing pain often fall short, and worse yet, may come with negative or even dangerous side effects. Standard pain relievers can cause nausea, drowsiness, irritability, anxiety, and even addiction. As people struggle with daily pain, more and more are turning to CBD for safe and effective relief.

“This stuff works!! Aches and pains, swollen joints, anxiety, headaches, you name it and it helps.” - Curt R., Facebook Review

From professional athletes to people suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis, CBD is bringing quick, natural, and powerful pain relief to countless people. This comes as no surprise, as clinical research has shown that CBD is effective at decreasing pain - minus the negative side effects that come with many opiates and other medications.

Though research is ongoing, scientists have identified two ways that CBD helps with pain:

1) CBD blocks absorption of anandamide, a compound that is associated with regulating pain

2) CBD may also decrease inflammation, which not only has positive implications for people suffering from pain, but also for certain immune-system issues that are impacted by inflammation
