Finding Relief: How CBD Products Can Alleviate Chronic Pain and Other Symptoms

Living with chronic pain is often an agonizing journey that may feel like one is navigating through a labyrinth of experiments and treatments with no end (or relief) in sight. For those struggling with pain management and symptom alleviation, finding an effective solution can seem like an elusive dream that seems to always be just out of reach. However, there is a growing body of evidence supported by first-hand experience that suggests CBD could be a game-changer.

How Does It Work?

First, let’s explore what exactly CBD is and how it works. CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, which is derived from the cannabis plant. On its own, it has no traces of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), so one will not experience a “high” from it. However, CBD interacts with the body’s ECS (endocannabinoid system), a complex network in the brain that is responsible for the regulation of numerous physiological functions. Some of these functions include the following:

  • Pain perception
  • Inflammation
  • Mood
  • Appetite
  • Anxiety
  • And more…

By modulating activity within the ECS, CBD products have the ability to exert analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anxiolytic effects. In other words, CBD can help manage pain, inflammation, and other symptoms of chronic illnesses.

Another way CBD helps to alleviate pain is by targeting the vanillin receptor TRPV1. This key mechanism inside the brain plays a major role in inflammation and pain sensation. By dampening or desensitizing TRPV1 receptors, CBD can tone down pain signals received by the brain without the psychoactive effects associated with THC. So, the person will experience relief without the side effect of getting high. 

A Case for Trigeminal Neuralgia

One condition, known as trigeminal neuralgia (TN), has proven to be particularly difficult to treat. It is characterized by stabbing pain or electrical sensation stemming from the trigeminal nerve. Starting at the top of the ear, this nerve splits off three different ways moving toward the jaw, cheek, and eye. There is one on either side of the face, but patients typically only experience TN on one side. This shooting pain travels across the face within seconds and lasts for quite a while. Here’s what one person with TN has to say about using CBD for pain management:

“I have suffered from trigeminal neuralgia for more than 10 years. I sought advice from multiple doctors, and I tried various prescriptions. Nothing touched the excruciating pain I was having. Since starting on a regimen of products from TreeHouse CBD, I have been pain-free for 1 year. My hope is that the word will get out to others with TN so they too can find relief.”

Their journey from agony to relief serves as a beacon of hope for countless others who suffer from TN and other types of chronic pain. Their testimony underscored the transformative power of CBD in not only dampening painful sensations but also enhancing one’s overall quality of life. 

What Else Can CBD Do?

Beyond pain management, CBD products have proven promising for alleviating symptoms associated with various other conditions including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • And more…

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can also help improve mobility while fostering a holistic approach to symptom relief and pain management. Keep in mind that while CBD is typically well-tolerated, it may not be suitable for all. Sourcing high-quality CBD products from reputable suppliers like TreeHouse CBD ensures purity and potency for maximizing the therapeutic benefits and minimizing potential risks.
