In “Fibromyalgia News Today”, author Robin Dix mentions anecdotal evidence from others that the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD may help people with pain:
“I have a few fibro friends who swear by CBD oil. It does not contain THC. That’s what causes a euphoric high. My understanding is that it helps not only with pain, but also with sleep. It can be smoked or taken in a hemp capsule. I have not tried it, but definitely would be open to it.”
Human’s Endocannabinoid System, which regulates many immune system functions and pain-sensation, likely plays a role in peoples’ responsiveness to cannabinoids, including CBD.
That’s Natural sources CBD-rich oil from hemp that has been grown to have high levels and complete profiles of cannabinoids and terpenes. Be sure to know your farmer, know how the hemp is processed, and make sure you are getting a full-spectrum product that contains all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes from the hemp plant.
