Nerve pain. It can take over your life physically and emotionally. But you could manage pain safely with CBD-infused products. Opioids, the most common product prescribed for chronic pain, has a whole raft of problems, not the least of which is addiction and potential death. Not exactly a comforting option. CBD products are an option that may alleviate pain without the dire consequences.
The Lost Remedy Nerve Pain Relief was developed for people with chronic neuropathic pain caused by sciatica, neuralgia and other damage to sensory, motor or autonomic nerves. “I know so many people who have issues with nerve damage and old injuries,” says Karen, Lost Remedy owner. “It’s especially helpful for sciatica and people who’ve had surgery, which often results in pain because of cut and damaged nerves.”
How does CBD help nerve pain?
It’s not just CBD that works to relieve nerve pain. Our CBD-infused products use essential oils and carrier oils to enhance the beneficial properties of cannabinoids. Both, when combined with CBD, jump-start the CBD already present in our bodies (See Cannabinoids and You). Combining the essential and carrier oils with CBD makes each product most effective.
Our Nerve Pain Formula, infused with organically sourced hemp-derived CBD, is comprised of essential oils that specifically target certain nerve-related issues. The eight essential oils chosen for this product work collectively. As a result, they offer a range of therapeutic benefits—relieving pain, improving circulation and acting as a sedative and anti-spasmodic. In addition, some of the oils work to remove toxins, calm nerves and reduce inflammation.
The Nerve Pain Relief combines CBD with these carefully selected essential and easily absorbed carrier oils. Together they work in concert to calm the nerves and ease the sharp pain associated with nerve damage.
CBD and the carrier oil, essential oil connection
CBD on its own is a real boon to our bodies. It has been used for centuries as a nutritional supplement, among other things. Essential oils, too, have been used medicinally for centuries. But, essential oils themselves are pretty strong. So, if you have sensitive skin, applying them directly could cause a reaction. Plus, diluting the essential oil in a carrier oil may increase the therapeutic benefits for two reasons.
First, essential oils are volatile and evaporate quickly. So, before it is even absorbed into the skin, a good chunk of it evaporates into the air. Now, given the expense of essential oils, to have most of it evaporate before you get the benefits seems counterproductive. Enter the fatty carrier oil, which doesn’t evaporate at all. It will hold the essential oil and the benefits of all the oils are absorbed into your skin.
Second, settling an essential oil into a carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil or other such oils, allows you to spread the essential oil over a more of your body. So it helps you absorb it into a larger area.
Fibromyalgia also has gotten good results with CBD. It’s a chronic condition and treatment for it isn’t terribly effective. The symptoms can fluctuate in intensity, location and duration. Fatigue, sleep disturbances cognitive difficulties (memory problems or thinking clearly), and stiffness are the most reported symptoms.
Numerous studies show that cannabis can lower pain levels safely. Two studies by the National Institutes of Health show its efficacy in pain that hadn’t responded to other more mainstream products, as well as pain associated with multiple sclerosis. When pain is relieved, people with chronic pain have:
- improved sleep quality
- less depression and anxiety
Both are important factors in regaining quality of life. And there were no safety concerns for the people using it.
If you suffer from chronic pain, you owe it to yourself to give this safe, effective product a try.
