We did alot of research into CBD or Cannabidoil for our article "Can CBD Oil Cure Everything?". Among the many uses CBD Oil has in "hacking" our Endocannabanoid System (ECS), one of the most popular is as a natural pain reliever.

We sampled a few products but those sold at our partner CBD shop Diamond CBD are the best. According to their website:

CBD Oil works WITH your body to ELIMINATE YOUR PAIN FROM WITHIN. And it goes to work quickly. After over 20,000 clinical studies, it has been proven over and over again ... The cannabinoids found in CBD Oil are the SAME compounds that regulate mood and pain in the brain and body. In just days, the cannabinoids in our CBD Hemp Oil will tune your entire endocannabinoid system (the network of receptors found throughout your body, including your brain, organs, glands)... leaving you pain free and feeling years younger. Muscle pain, joint pain, arthritis pain, headaches, body aches - all eliminated.

For the purposes of this tip, we are focusing on the pain relieving effects of CBD Oil. However CBD Oil can be used for a whole host of remedies other than pain relief including a sleep aid, to help quit smoking, in skincare, as a treatment for autism, seizure disorders, anxiety and even digestion!

So why does CBD Oil work as a natural pain reliever? Wheres the Science Jack? The compounds in CBD Oil are called cannabinoids (cannabidiol(CBD) is the type of cannabinoid). Research is still very new and more needs to be done, but studies on rats have shown a reduction in arthritic pain, reports have seen reductions in Multiple sclerosis spasticity and symptoms and even chronic pain studies were compiled en-masse to show cannabinoids are an effective way to treat long-term chronic pain.

If you are looking for a natural pain reliever for kids, or a possible treatment for anxiety or autism you could give CBD Gummies a try. The University of San Diego is currently undertaking a study of how effective CBD Oil is at treating Autism.

As with all new forms of health treatment consult your doctor before considering treating serious maladies or your children with CBD Oil. Consult an expert on dosage as with many concentrated substances using too much can cause damage.
