It seems like CBD is being talked about everywhere nowadays. A recent Gallup Poll showed that 14% (45 million) of Americans reported using CBD products and the reason they were using CBD oil was for pain relief. With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, the US laid the foundation for the rapid expansion of the CBD market.
CBD Oil and Pain Relief: a Dose of Evidence
According to Peter Grinspoon, MD at the Harvard Health Publishing “CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat. More study in humans is needed in this area to substantiate the claims of CBD proponents about pain control.” [Source]
