CBD is quickly becoming the choice for pain relief

Cannabidiol (CBD) is found in an increasing array of products – oils, tinctures, creams, gels, gummies and even food and beverages. The non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis plants – both hemp and marijuana – is becoming one of the most popular ingredients in virtually all markets and can trace its success to one key factor. CBD is the hands-down winner at providing pain relief.

CBD oil is now available everywhere. It’s almost reached the same level of fame as products that consumers have taken for granted for years – Coca-Cola, Lay’s potato chips and many others. Its success is tied not only to its ability to combat pain, but to the myriad of additional relief it can provide for ailments such as anxiety, insomnia, eczema and depression.

The targets CBD seeks out don’t appear to have much in common – eczema is a problem of the skin and pain stems from issues with nerve endings or cells. However, CBD is able to work with the body’s own endocannabinoid system to counter what increasingly seems to be an endless range of ailments.

Even the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) can no longer deny what previous research, and anecdotal evidence, has claimed – CBD simply works. The FDA has approved Epidiolex, a CBD-based drug that is used to treat certain forms of epilepsy, and the WHO has even stated that CBD is safe and is “tolerated well” by consumers. It adds, “There is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
