How does CBD cream work with the skin as a pain reliever?


Have you ever worked out too hard and woke up with muscle aches and pain? Or just have a generalized ache and pain in your muscles on a daily basis. Most people at some point experience this kind of pain. Usually, the first thing you grab is aspirin and that really minty smelly cream. But did you know that CBD can help relieve muscle aches and pains too?


We now know that CBD interacts with our natural receptors within our body called CB1 and CB2. All humans have these receptors within our natural endocannabinoid system. We also create our own natural cannabinoids which trigger the homeostasis process within our body. This triggers our natural healing response. When our body needs healing, then it triggers homeostasis. This helps with an array of issues such as inflammation, pain, digestive issues, anxiety, seizures and more. 


Cannabidiol(CBD) is now considered a very effective pain management tool for muscle aches and generalized muscle pain. How this works is  CBD interacts with the pain receptor TRPV-1. This receptor helps to regulate body temperature, pain, and inflammation. The use of cream to control this pain is now highly recognized as extremely effective. 


The recommendation of strength, depending on how much pain you are in, is between 

250 mg- 1000 mg. 


CBD creams are also good to use for Rheumatoid arthritis and Osteoarthritis. When applied to the skin and massaged in a circular motion, it helps to reduce inflammation and swelling. This also helps to improve blood flow to the joints. 


Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammation that affects the joints. It can affect the hands as well as the feet. This is when the body starts to attack its own tissue, including the joints. It causes swelling and inflammation as well as bone erosion. Rheumatoid arthritis  is very painful for anyone afflicted with it. CBD works internally by helping to get the inflammation under control on a cellular level. As a cream, it interacts with the TRPV-1 receptor to reduce swelling externally. By using both the oil and the cream you are providing an armor so to speak for your body protecting you from swelling and pain. 


CBD has many great qualities that naturally help with the pain. It doesn't have any negative effect on the liver as many over the counter pain relievers do. Over time, those can damage the liver and cause further issues within the body. By naturally providing your body with what we already have within us through our endocannabinoid system you are helping your body fight off what ails you. From sore muscles to a more serious chronic pain, CBD is the natural solution to your issue.
