In September 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a report estimating that 50 million Americans are living with chronic pain. While others have provided their own estimates, one thing is clear and can be agreed upon: Pain is the most common reason adults seek health care. Traditional painkillers and opioids have dangerous side effects, causing many to look for alternate, healthier options. And while it’s still a relatively new option, popularity is growing around CBD for pain management.
CBD for Pain Management
Whether you’re looking for pain relief from arthritis, migraines, or a hard day at the gym, you may want to try CBD. Research is mounting in support of its abundant benefits, including managing pain with CBD oil and products. By intercepting the transmission of pain signals in the body, CBD works with the body’s nervous system. It helps provide natural pain relief without the nasty side effects of Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS) and traditional painkillers.
Along with the impressive list of conditions it can provide relief for, CBD comes in a wide range of products. Softgels, gummies, oils, and topical creams are just a few of the CBD products Proper Hemp offers. This provides you with natural pain relief and ensures maximum benefits, minus the addictive properties. As with any dietary supplement, Proper Hemp encourages you to talk with your doctor before combining CBD products with prescription medications.
Inflammation is the body’s defense mechanism against infection and vital to our immune system. However, prolonged inflammation can lead to serious health issues. In fact, did you know that diabetes, cancer, hormonal issues, digestive problems, heart disease, and autoimmune conditions all stem from inflammation? Did you also know that CBD is a natural and powerful anti-inflammatory? By suppressing the inflammatory response, CBD can relieve so many of the symptoms related to inflammation-based problems. Whether you’re wanting to maintain homeostasis or are looking to reduce pain and inflammation, CBD is a powerful resource.
You’ve probably heard of turmeric and its impressive anti-inflammatory and pain fighting properties. But did you know that curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric? Curcumin has actually been shown to be the ingredient responsible for all those great benefits that have made turmeric a staple in our wellness cabinets.
However, due to the curcumin’s poor bioavailability–meaning the body has a harder time absorbing it–positive results are best achieved when curcumin is combined with other agents, such as seen with Proper Hemp Co.’s CBD + Curcumin Pain Relief Softgels. While chronic inflammation contributes to many common Western diseases, curcumin can suppress many of the molecules known to play major roles in inflammation. This results in a phenomenal source of natural pain management, especially when paired with CBD. This magical combination creates a natural inflammation fighting powerhouse. Together these ingredients help alleviate pain from migraines, menstrual cramps, joint aches and several chronic conditions.
Inflammation can be a real pain to deal with (no pun intended). Topical creams and balms can be a helpful supplement to soft gels and sublingual tinctures in combating this. Proper Hemp Co.’s CBD Infused Skin Balm delivers a soothing dose of relief for pain induced by inflammation. It’s especially great for joints, sore and strained muscles, or anytime you need to relax.
