Pain Relief

The need for pain relief of some kind is something we have all found the need for at one time or another, usually without too much success as many of the so-called pain relief treatments are either expensive or ineffective. Today though there is a different type of pain relief treatment available and that is CBD pain cream. This cream is both effective and relatively cheap compared to most other treatments for pain.

The effective ingredient in this cream is CBD or Cannabidiol to give it its official name and this is a product extracted from the hemp plant which is of course also known as marijuana or cannabis. CBD though is not the part of the plant which is responsible for highs or addiction as that is the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Both THC and CBD are contained in hemp plants, both of which are cannabinoids but only the ones containing THC have now been shown to be responsible for the psychological effects which caused the whole hemp plant to become banned throughout most of the world.

It has long been known that the hemp plant did have beneficial health benefits, in fact it has been discovered that even the ancient Egyptians used hemp for healing purposes but it has only more recently been possible to break down the plant well enough to be able to distinguish the beneficial properties from the more hazardous ones and now that has been done, the true benefits of the plant can be fully researched and made available for sufferers from many different ailments.

CBD cream has been specially formulated to ease muscle pain but CBD oil has also been developed in order to assist with stress and other disorders. All the health benefits of this extremely useful plant have yet been discovered but continuing research is looking into the possibility it can in some way also help cancer patients. The health benefits of hemp which have already been discovered though, indicate that it could become one of the most important plants on the planet as far as health benefits are concerned.

Our bodies make some cannabinoids as well and so in order for those to be of the greatest use, the brain developed cannabinoid receptors and this is possibly why marijuana has such an effect on us, the brain willingly accepts it and is then of course affected by it. It is probably these receptors in the brain though that today make the CBD so effective also but this time in a good way, benefitting our bodies.

As it has been discovered that it is the THC which is responsible for any adverse effects from the hemp plant, scientists are now working on producing a strain of hemp which has little or no THC but plenty of CBD, hopefully producing a plant species which is even more beneficial to our health than the existing cannabis, marijuana, hemp or whatever other names people want to brand the plant with. For now, though CBD creams and oils are already proving very beneficial to many people.
