Pain management may be the most pressing issue in the medical community today. The amount of people who seek pain management therapies has boomed and continues to grow quickly. Part of this is fueled by the fact that people are living longer and longer lives mean more pain during that long life. There are so many people living with chronic or intermittent pain that the parts of the traditional medical industries providing therapies are filled with multi-billion dollar companies that are some of the fastest growing.
The problem with the majority of the current traditional pain management therapies is that they often center around or greatly include the use of opiate based pharmaceuticals which although effective at managing the pain. Too often leave people feeling like zombies when they take them. In many cases they cannot function normally. Another big issue is that they are some of the most highly addictive substances known. Over time a person will inevitably get hooked on these drugs requiring them to take higher doses and completely changing their lives to one that revolves around getting their opiate high.
Today there is an epidemic in many western countries of people who started on pain meds and are now full-fledged heroin junkies.
The need for alternative pain therapies that do not have the same awful side effects has never been greater and the wonderful news is that several alternative pain therapies are showing great results at treating patients.
Here is perhaps the most promising:
Everyone in the pain management industry that is not a pharmaceutical company is excited about medical marijuana. There is no doubt that medical marijuana is the hottest new alternative pain treatments and it is primarily because of a compound it contains called CBD. This powerful compound is a cannabinoid found in the seeds, stalks and flowers of the Cannabis plant. It occurs naturally and can be extracted, independent of other cannabinoids, in oil form. Although many new compounds have been discovered in cannabis CBD is perhaps the most promising because of its wide range of benefits and it is not psychoactive so it will not get you high if you ingest it.
How is CBD Oil Administered?
Today there are a range of ways to take CBD and it is generally delivered in an oil that is then put in capsules. The compound has shown a wealth of health benefits in humans that include: reduction of cancer symptoms, improved heart health, relief from anxiety and depression. It has shown antipsychotic effects and may reduce psychotic symptoms. But its biggest win so far has been for patients with pain severe symptoms. CBD oil has proven as effective with many patients as opiates without any of the side effects and with no addiction issues.
Today because of the controversy surrounding marijuana, CBD Oil is only slowly getting into the hands of pain patients through companies like https://www.cbdcentral.com/what-is-cbd/ . Many of them find great relief and have been spreading the world about CBD Oil. At this pace, it is only a matter of time before it becomes a mainstream therapy.
