CBD may be an option for managing chronic pain, according to Harvard Health
CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain, according to a Harvard Health Publishing written by Dr. Peter Grinspoon.
September is Pain Awareness Month. Nearly 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain —more than those who have diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.
In his blog post, Grinspoon reported that a study from the European Journal of Pain showed that in animals, CBD applied to the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrated the way CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat.
“More study in humans is needed in this area to substantiate the claims of CBD proponents about pain control,” Grinspoon said. “We need more research but CBD may prove to be an option for managing anxiety, insomnia and chronic pain.”Back to all posts
