CBD Capsules For Pain

CBD Capsules For Pain

More than 38 million Americans suffer from different degrees of chronic pain from a variety of different ailments. With an aging population, this number is bound to increase, as a high percentage of the pain sufferers in this country are aged 65 or older. This is a health issue with massive ramifications, leaving the patient to suffer year after year with little hope of alleviating their condition.

The medical community is currently searching for new ways to combat this epidemic, as the current medical practice for treating chronic pain is with opioid medications (not a good alternative). This has led to widespread substance abuse cases, addiction, and in some sad situations even overdose and death. The need is there for an alternative method to be utilized with fewer side effects. New interest in cannabis for the treatment of chronic pain in cancer patients has led to an increase in physiological studies being conducted on the efficacy of cannabis, and more importantly the cannabinoid – Cannabidiol, for the treatment of chronic pain. At this time there have been tons and tons of anecdotal evidence and personal testimony from chronic pain sufferers being able to substantially reduce pain and increase their quality of life by supplementing with CBD and Sativa strain Cannabis.

CBD, The Endocannabinoid System, and Pain Relief  

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp and marijuana plants utilized for its different medicinal benefits. Hemp extract and marijuana are different varieties of the Cannabis Sativa plant. Hemp is traditionally cultivated for seeds, oil, and fiber, while marijuana is cultivated for its high content of THC, utilized for its psychoactive properties. Currently, there are 85+ cannabinoids known to medical science, with Cannabidiol being the compound prevalent in most CBD products. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant which, when ingested or inhaled, can provide a range of beneficial treatments for different symptoms and ailments. CBD is beneficial for individuals looking for alternative means of relief for treating inflammationpainanxietypsychosisseizures, spasms, and nausea.

Cannabinoids are able to provide these benefits by interacting with our brain’s endocannabinoid system, which is the vital molecular system for helping maintain healthy homeostasis. This communication between cannabinoids and our endocannabinoid system helps our body remedy any deficiencies.

By consuming CBD, you are absorbing keys which interact with different locks on cells in the body. These cell receptors make up our endocannabinoid system, which helps modulate and interacts with other pain control systems and anti-inflammatories. CBD does not get you high like THC because it doesn’t bind to the body’s CB1 receptors. CBD, unlike THC, interacts with the body’s CB2 receptors which are important mediators for the suppression of pain and inflammation. CBD also prevents the breakdown of the body’s natural ‘bliss molecule’ anandamide, which creates a natural feeling of calm and well being and suppresses pain response in the nervous system.

CBD Oil Capsules For Pain Relief

High-quality CBD Capsules are made through an extraction process which utilizes CO2. To extract all the terpenes from the hemp plant while retaining the molecular integrity of the unique chemical compounds requires a series of chambers and tubes which control temperature and pressure. The combination of the right temperature and pressure causes the CBD oil to separate from other plant matter. After a lengthy extraction process, the oil is separated into varying degrees of concentrations, depending on the preference. The oil is then encapsulated and sold throughout the country.

Studies have been conducted which showcase CBD Oil’s ability to moderate pain levels in patients. In 2008, a review study was conducted which assessed how CBD works to relieve chronic pain. The study reviewed many previous studies which were conducted from 1980 to 2007. As the researchers uncovered the data they concluded that CBD was statistically effective in decreasing pain levels in patients suffering from chronic pain disorders.

What is really interesting is that those participants who felt the effects of CBD on their pain levels reported no adverse side effects. The research also commented on the fact that the participants also had the added benefit of being able to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer than the control group, which helped in their pain management and unfortunate insomnia due to their chronic pain disorders. Recent studies have showcased CBD’s ability to help people go to sleep and feel more rested overall. Researchers have concluded that CBD’s ability to curb anxiety, due to its anxiolytic effect, statistically helped those individuals who suffered from Insomnia and other sleep-related disorders.

Japa Organics CBD Capsules are a great way to introduce new patients to CBD. The patient can easily control their dosing while feeling assured in the quality of the product. To obtain high concentrations of CBD in our products, we have to use high-CBD hemp strains. As CBD levels in these different strains vary from plant to plant and strain to strain, we have to create continuity and consistency in our products by implementing a specialized extraction process. Our extraction method ensures we utilize the entire plant, which ensures our customers experience the full spectrum of what the host plant has to offer. This process allows for all of the plant’s natural cannabinoids, terpenes, and fatty acids to be utilized. By applying an enclosed lean manufacturing process, we prevent the degradation of the plant’s natural benefits. This process ensures we produce a premium high-quality product for our customers.

Conclusion

What we can understand from this early work is that CBD is a nontoxic compound which acts very naturally and works with your body through the endocannabinoid system. Studies have shown that ingesting 700mg a day for 6 weeks did not show any toxic effects in humans. As we have discussed earlier, the standard forms of treating pain today (particularly with opioids) are considered very toxic, and what CBD provides is a treatment of chronic pain disorders without adverse effects. More human studies are needed for CBD to receive the full backing of the medical community, but as CBD becomes more and more popular, the necessary large group human studies will be administered and peer-reviewed.
