Pain Relief from CBD vs Opioids

CBD is a good treatment for pain, but can it treat America’s opioid epidemic? Let’s take a look.   Using CBD vs. Opiates for Pain Relief CBD can be and is used to treat all sorts of ailments. In particular, CBD is an effective and increasingly popular way to treat pain, and it does so in an interesting way: instead of blocking pain signals in your neural system (as many pain relievers do), CBD elevates the amount of anandamide in your body. Anandamide, for the science-curious readers, is a fatty acid neurotransmitter that your body uses to treat pain on its own. This way of treating pain is becoming more and more popular, but it’s by no means the only method used to medically qualm pain...

Does Using CBD Equal A Positive Drug Test?   Improving moods, fighting anxiety, treating pain, energy boosts, better sleep and potentially even treating cancer… it seems there’s little CBD can’t do. But… is passing a drug test part of CBD’s extensive abilities? The answer requires a little science, and a little explaining. To start, the answer is both yes and no.

Can CBD Help IBS?

What Is IBS? Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or spastic colon, ranks as the number one most commonplace gastrointestinal disorder, affecting 35 million people in America alone. As a chronic disorder affecting the colon, IBS is diagnosed based totally on the symptoms experienced by the affected individual. IBS is classified as a functional gastrointestinal disorder, which means that it seems to be of spontaneous origin due to the fact the biological process which results in the diseased condition is unknown. First documented in the Rocky Mountain medical journal in 1950, studies stated that IBS had symptoms including painful cramping, nausea, chronic diarrhea or constipation. IBS typically results in stomach ache, gassiness, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, or both.   The Potential of Cannabis, Hemp, and CBD Despite the fact that the precise cause of IBS is still unknown, it's regarded that, like many physiological processes, the gastrointestinal tract is managed with the aid of the body’s endocannabinoid system. Experts document that the colonic...

A major roadblock in the way of the CBD market, however, has been the confusing and sometimes complicated legality of CBD. The DEA and the law In 44 states, CBD is legal—but at a Federal level, its legality is unclear. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) recently issued a sort of “clarification” stating that CBD is a derivative of Cannabis and is therefore illegal under Federal law. The DEA is not Congress, however,...
