Beating pain using CBD

Wednesday May 19, 2021

One of our customers tells their story of beating pain using CBD.

One of the most difficult types of pain to treat is neuropathic pain. This is caused by nerve damage resulting from physical injuries and illnesses such as shingles, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and some types of cancer and cancer treatments. Neuropathic pain is usually chronic and tends to worsen over time.

Whilst the benefits of CBD are not yet medically proven, a number of studies indicate that it may have various wellness benefits from aiding sleep to providing relief from anxiety, pain, depression and inflammation.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD can make a difference to pain management in some cases.

Here is a story from a couple, Mr and Mrs. B, (we have kept their names anonymous to protect their privacy) about how they have benefited from using CBD.

Mrs. B, a retired practice nurse in her early 70s, was looking for something to help her husband who was suffering from debilitating pain and low moods. He had had non-Hodgkins lymphoma and intense radiation and chemotherapy and as a result had nerve damage in his legs. While that cancer has gone, he now has prostate cancer and started treatment before the first lockdown.

During the therapy his legs, arm and shoulder would become very painful and he could hardly walk. He took a nerve tablet twice a day that made him sleep, but nothing was working to relieve these conditions. His mood was also often low. Mr. and Mrs. B were at their “wits’ end” to find something that would help him.

A family member recommended CBD. The couple carried out their own research and from this felt reassured about giving it a try.

Mr. B has been using CBD in the form of the 2000mg oil and after 6 weeks stopped complaining of pain. While he still has some pain, it is not near the level of what he was experiencing before. It has also improved his mood and he is much more relaxed.

Mrs. B also decided to try CBD and has been using the rejuvenating cream. She says that her face feels soft and lovely as a result and is delighted with it.

Having experienced CBD for themselves, they have recommended it others their age who have issues with pain and Parkinson’s, feeling that this could really help as a way of beating pain.

CBD could be worth considering as part of a pain management strategy. CBD is considered safe by health organisations such as the WHO, as it is well tolerated at high doses and side effects are uncommon and minor. It is legal and sold as a supplement in the UK, without the need for a prescription.
