Medical Hemp-Probably the Best Painkiller We Have

Nov 12, 2021

According to a Gallup poll released in August 2019, about 14 percent of Americans use CBD products for health reasons, and pain is the first reason.

A survey by the Arthritis Foundation of America showed that 29 percent of respondents had used CBD products, and most reported significant improvements in their pain symptoms, sleep and well-being. The study was co-authored by Dustin Sulak, medical director of Intigr8, and Kevin M. Takku, a member of the Association of Hamma Clinicians, and published in CureusCureus is an open medical journal based in San Francisco, California. The majority of respondents were male (55.8%), with nearly a third aged between 46 and 55 and a further quarter aged between 56 and 65.

In a study of 525 patients who had chronic pain and used prescription opioids for at least three months continually besides medical hemp, 40.4 percent replaced their opioids with hemp. An encyclopedia search shows that opioids are no less damaging to the human body than the disease itself, just like drug use. Opioid painkillers are alkaloids extracted from opioids (poppy) and derivatives in vivo and in vitro. They interact with central specific receptors to relieve pain and make people feeling happiness. Large doses can cause stiffness, numbness, coma and respiratory depression.

Of the 525 patients, 45.2% reported reduced dependence on opioids, 13.3% reported no change in their use, and 1.1% reported an increase in their use of opioids. Nearly half of the patients (48.2%) reported a 40% to 100% reduction in pain when using hemp and opioids together, 8.6% reported no change, and 2.6% reported an increase in pain. Eighty percent of patients reported an improvement in their quality of life when using medical hemp. Nearly 63 percent of respondents said they did not want to continue using opioids. - Reference: "A investigation of the impact of medical hemp on prescription opioid use for chronic pain, Cureus, December 2, 2020." Medical hemp, numerous studies have demonstrated that probably is the best painkillers. Two main compounds of hemp  hydroquinone (CBD) and Tetrahydrohamfel (THC) are helpful for the treatment of joint pain. More effective than many drugs, including opioids, it also evidence that medical hemp products are safe and well tolerated by human body. Unlike opioids, medical hemp has no side effects and is not addictive in reasonable doses.

One of the largest medical literature on hemp and pain states that "there is substantial evidence that medical hemp is an effective treatment for chronic pain in adults." CBD is ideal for treating inflammatory pain, which is common in patients with injuries or arthritis. Scientists believe CBD can reduce inflammation in a number of ways, one of which is by blocking inflammatory markers.

Other studies have shown that CBD reduces neuropathic pain by increasing the role of glycine receptors, which regulate pain. CBD has become the primary choice for pain due to its lack of psychoactivity. However, Steve Alexander, associate professor at the University of Nottingham School of Medicine, said: “When THC activates receptors in nerve cells, it greatly reduces pain. “Angela D. Bryan, a professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of Colorado Boulder, added: "A little euphoria can help reduce pain levels in the same way that other opioid painkillers work." Studies have shown that THC has a good effect on neuropathic and central pain, or pain caused by cancer, fibromyalgia, AIDS and other similar diseases. THC also has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that fundamentally address pain from inflammation. Types of hemp products currently used for pain relief are oils and lotions infused with hemp extract to help treat joint pain. Because they are applied directly to the affected area, relieving pain locally. Some compound products with additions such as camphor, menthol or capsaicin can help further reduce joint pain. Many studies have shown that aerosol inhalation is the most effective treatment for pain. Patients can inhale medical hemp through atomizing equipment. Just be sure to buy from reputable manufacturers and avoid the risk of consuming unknown chemicals.

Eating medical hemp (either THC or CBD) directly is slower to respond to joint pain than topical or inhaled, but the relief is longer.
