Breakthrough in Pain Relief

Many people will be glad to hear that there is a breakthrough in achieving effective pain relief and that breakthrough is in the form of a pain relief cream. The cream which is called CBD Pain Relief Cream is a product from American CBD who the utilize advantages of the pain relief properties found in beneficial cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. The hemp plant has of course been shrouded in a bad reputation due to it also being known as cannabis or marijuana, however, although some cannabinoids in hemp can have adverse health effects, others have now been confirmed to have beneficial health properties.

Prior to it being possible to identify the beneficial cannabinoids from the adverse cannabinoids in hemp, it had been deemed appropriate to ban the use of the plant completely. More recently, however, although the benefits had previously been known, scientists have been able to not only identify the harmful ones but have also been able to segregate them from the beneficial ones. This has led to many potential benefits to the health industry, not just in pain relief but also in assisting patients with Alzheimer’s and cancer.

Some forms of cannabinoids are essential for a healthy body, so much so that the human body even produces some of its own and the brain has adapted to create cannabinoid receptors especially to benefit fully from them. These receptors, however, although helping to make the CBD more effective, did also make the effects of marijuana more effective also, ensuring a good ‘high’. It has been learned that the bad cannabinoids in hemp contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and it is the THC and not the cannabinoids themselves which cause a high and are addictive. Scientists are now, however, able to grow hemp with less THC content, making it far more beneficial than harmful, allowing safer strains of hemp to be grown purely for medicinal purposes.

It has been speculated that if hemp were to be allowed to be grown and cultivated in bulk, it could even play a role in combating global warming. The reason for this speculation is that the pulp of the hemp plant can replace the use of wood in many paper products, allowing fewer forests to be cut down for their timber. If this were true and was to happen, it could mean that hemp would become perhaps the most important plant we could grow, playing a significant role in reducing global warming by allowing more forests to flourish and breathe out the planet’s much-needed oxygen.

Prior to being banned, hemp had also been used in producing oil and the first Ford car ever designed was specifically designed to run on hemp oil. Of course even if hemp were to be grown in bulk, it would never be able to fully replace the more conventional fossil fuels, however, as part of an overall renewable energy program, it could also play a significant role there too, cementing its position as the planet’s most valuable plant.
