The CDC reports that over 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. It is a health concern in its own right with a negative impact on every aspect of an individual’s life. Whether the cause is injury, headaches, arthritis, or any number of conditions, pain robs us of laughter, joy, and carefree adventure.
Sadly, many medications cause more problems than they solve, and they don’t solve underlying causes like inflammation. And then there are the risks of addiction, liver damage, and countless side effects.
Like us, you’ve probably been searching for a better way to treat pain and discomfort.
At Mission Farms CBD, many of us struggle with everyday aches and pains, too. That is why we developed our RELIEVE CBD line of products. We have experienced the benefit of CBD and we are confident that you will, too.
How does CBD Ease your Pain?
CBD interacts with a number of receptors in your body that modulate pain and inflammation.
CB1 and CB2 Receptors — Have you ever heard of the “runner’s high”? It’s a feeling of pain-free bliss that runners and other athletes experience after extreme, even painful, physical exertion. A chemical naturally produced by our bodies, called anandamide, is what eases pain. Well, CBD increases the body’s supply of adenosine by blocking these CB receptors that absorb anandamide. The result is less pain and a greater sense of well-being.
TRPV1 Recptors — CBD directly interacts with the TRPV1 receptors throughout our body and the result is a reduction in pain and inflammation.
Serotonin Receptors — Serotonin receptors are commonly known to impact mood, but they also play a role in pain perception. By increasing the availability of serotonin, CBD can help modulate both pain and improve mood in a beneficial way.
Pain and inflammation often go hand-in-hand. A recent review of pre-clinical and animal studies confirms CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects.¹ CBD’s powerful anti-inflammatory benefits make it an excellent treatment for injury, neuropathy (pinched or irritated nerves), arthritis, and many other conditions exacerbated by inflammation.
We are experiencing an opioid epidemic that is destroying the lives of many Americans. Good news: CBD may be the solution for the opioid epidemic. Many of our own customers have reported that CBD has enabled them to decrease or even cease their use of opioids for pain management. Considering the many side-effects and addictive nature of opioids, this is encouraging news. A number of studies sited in The Journal of Pain and Treatment of Chronic Pain by Medical Approaches have confirmed that CBD can both reduce dependency on opioids² and lessen the symptoms of withdrawal³. The efficacy of CBD for pain management is not surprising. Our brains have ten times as many cannabinoid receptors as opioid receptors (“mu” receptors).
Essential Oils + RELIEVE CBD
If you are buying a plain old bottle of CBD, you aren’t getting the most for your money. Why? Studies show that when CBD is used as an isolated compound, it isn’t nearly as effective as when it is combined with other terpenes that work alongside the CBD. This is called the Entourage Effect.
For our RELIEVE CBD products, we have selected essential oils comprised of terpenes that are known to work with CBD to help ease pain. The result is greater pain relief than you will get with just a plain bottle of CBD.
For example, the terpene Beta-Caryophyllene has been shown to reduce the perception of pain by acting upon the same CB receptors that CBD stimulates (footnote 4). The terpene Alpha-Pinene has shown promising results in reducing inflammation in cartilage in human studies (footnote 5).The terpene Humulene has been shown to reduce inflammation in various inflammatory experiments on mice (footnote 6). These terpenes, and others, work along with CBD to help reduce pain and inflammation, which makes our Relieve CBD line of products so effective.
