Can CBD Gummies Be Used For Pain Relief?

CBD or Cannabidiol is presently one of the trendiest products in the health and wellness industry. CBD gummies are the tastiest way to enjoy the benefits of this cannabis extract. It is of little wonder why people around the world are opting for CBD as an alternative medicine to treat different kinds of physical pain.

Often people ask whether CBD gummies can be used as a substitute for mainstream medicine to relieve pain. How effective are those CBD gummies? Let us dig deep and try and answer these questions.

What are CBD gummies?

There is hardly anyone who has not enjoyed chewing some tasty gummies. CBD gummies are very similar to regular gummies but infused with CBD extract derived from hemp. Although CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plants, it is not psychoactive meaning you will not ‘get high’ if you consume CBD products.

On the contrary, THC, another natural compound in cannabis which causes euphoria effect, is classified as a drug. THC may be present in a negligible percentage in the CBD products and thus does not have any side effects on the user.

CBD gummies are the most preferred and the easiest way to consume a precise dosage of CBD every day. Using CBD powders or crystals can be messy, whereas capsules and tincture have a bitter flavor.

In these forms measuring the exact dosage of the extract can be stressful. Delicious CBD gummies, on the other hand, contain a precise concentration of CBD ranging from 5 to 30mg per gummy. Users can quickly calculate their daily CBD requirement into the number of gummies and snack on them throughout the day. These gummies are legal in most states in the US and are lighter on your pocket compared to other CBD products.

CBD gummies for relieving pain

People for thousands of years have used cannabis plants as a natural medicine for relieving pain and relaxing the muscles. Wisdom of ages has now been backed by several scientific studies affirming that cannabis is an effective herbal pain killer. CBD offers us all these medicinal properties of the plant without getting you intoxicated.

According to a survey conducted recently, more than 60% of the people who consume CBD to treat a health condition, use it to relieve arthritis, muscle pain and joint pain.

CBD gummies are mostly popular among athletes and sportspeople in general. These edibles help them combat physical pain and fatigue naturally without making them feel drowsy. CBD also helps them manage stress and anxiety in a better way without interfering in their performance.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, millions of adults and children suffer from chronic joint-related ailments. Arthritis and other types of rheumatic diseases cause joint pain and stiffness, which drastically restrict mobility in patients. For all these people, CBD can be an effective medicine to relieve pain without harmful side effects.

The way CBD interacts with our body is quite impressive. Our body’s endocannabinoid system has CB2 receptors which control how the body responds to pain and inflammation. CBD molecules get attached to these receptors, triggering the endocannabinoid system to produce more cannabinoids of its own. Thus the body is better equipped to handle pain.

A person may be required to consume more than one CBD gummy per day to control pain effectively. The dosage may vary based on the severity of pain, age, body weight and metabolism. Gummies may not be the best option for those who are suffering from acute pain. CBD tincture or capsules may provide faster relief.

The legality of CBD infused edibles

Since 2018, CBD extracted from industrial hemp has been legalized in the US. Having said that, consumption of various CBD edibles, including CBD gummies is still under supervision. For CBD gummies to be federally legal for use, they should contain less than 0.3% THC. CBD derived from marijuana is still illegal. The FDA should approve Hemp-derived CBD edibles as safe.

Many states have relaxed their approach towards CBD infused edibles and legalized their consumption. Before you start consuming CBD gummies, understand the law regarding CBD in your state. It is in your best interest to buy CBD gummies from a manufacturer who is licensed to produce them to ensure that you are taking the right product in precise quantity.

CBD gummies boost your energy levels and help you perform better. The precise concentration of CBD in these gummies makes consumption hassle free. Thus, CBD gummies are a sweet and joyful way to relieve chronic joint pain, post-surgical pain or muscle stress of all kinds.
