Are you dealing with inflammation? CBD can help! Pain from inflammation can and will likely affect all adults at some point in their lives. For some, it becomes chronic conditions that interfere with a healthy quality of life. Let’s dive into how CBD helps with inflammation.
Over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription anti-inflammatory medications are easily available. They are also readily prescribed and very commonly used. The most common anti-inflammatory medications are called NSAIDs: non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Based on consumer survey responses, more than 17 million Americans take NSAIDs daily. More than 70 million prescriptions and more than 30 billion OTC NSAID tablets are sold annually in the United States. OTC NSAIDs include aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and prescription NSAIDs include celecoxib, diclofenac, etodolac, and ketoprofen.
Adam Kemp is a professional basketball player who turned to CBD products after breaking a bone in his back at the beginning of the 2017-2018 season.
“I was able to undertake my whole recovery from the back injury by using only CBD products, and now I continue to use them to help with inflammation and other muscle pains,” Kemp said.
How CBD Helps With INFLAMMATION
Over the past two decades, multiple studies have proven the anti-inflammatory benefits of phytocannabinoids and terpenoids, compounds that abound in the cannabis plant. The plant cannabinoids have many different mechanisms of action in their anti-inflammatory properties. These include the blockage of pro-inflammatory compounds that are made in the body as a result of injury or illness.
“Some cannabis medicine suppliers are combining raw and heated cannabinoids in tinctures to increase anti-inflammatory benefits. Many patients are benefitting from drinking the juice of raw cannabis plants. In my medical practice, I have seen thousands of patients eliminate or reduce the need for NSAIDs, reducing their risks of side effects and possibly even death, with the use of cannabis.”Bonni Goldstein, MD
