Like many adults, I suffer from back pain.
Back pain can be intolerable at times, with the worst part being that it is so difficult to pinpoint the cause. In my case, like so many others, the root cause of my back pain is inflammation. Inflammation triggers the body’s immune response, and causes a feedback loop of information from the nerves in the body to the surrounding tissue. I have tried many different remedies for my back pain, from prescription medications, ointments, and chiropractors. However, nothing seemed to work very long to alleviate my back pain. That is, until I discovered CBD. CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD is excellent at reducing inflammation, by affecting activity in the body’s endocannabinoid receptors. I first tried CBD in a tincture that I bought from a local cannabis dispensary. I noticed the effects of CBD almost immediately. CBD is not a psychoactive substance, so I didn’t feel any kind of “high” from the tincture, but I felt relief in my back, as a result of the reduced inflammation. CBD is a great alternative to prescription medication for back pain because CBD, unlike opiates, is not habit forming, and there are virtually no side effects, and when taking CBD, I can take as much as I need without the fear of overdose, or taking too much to the point of harm. If you suffer from back pain as a result of inflammation, head to your local cannabis dispensary today to see what CBD can do for you!
