One of the reasons that CBD has enjoyed such a rise in popularity in the medical community is because of its versatility. CBD works for a wide variety of different health and wellness applications because it is an effective modulator of our natural endocannabinoid system (ECS). The body’s ECS is a complex network of interconnected biological systems that are regulated by cannabinoids that naturally occur within the human body, and work to control everything, including cognitive processes, appetite, mood and inflammation. One of the key components of the ECS is the role that it plays in pain management, which is one reason that so many people have found relief from pain using CBD. Starting from Day 1, our staff at Capitol Organics has pursued new and innovative ways to treat pain using natural, ethically produced CBD. Here are four of the most common types of pain that our customers have found relief from with our products.
Dermatitis and other specific types of skin irritation are some of the most common types of pain that people experience. Our CBD topical salve is specifically designed for the targeted treatment of skin conditions that cause pain and discomfort. These include acute problems like rashes, scrapes, burns and stings as well as chronic conditions such as psoriasis and other types of dermatitis. CBD functions as a protective against these conditions, many of which are commonly associated with neuropathic pain, by modulating the release of glutamate.
Our Capitol Organics topical salve is also a great way to introduce direct relief to areas of the body that are suffering from joint pain. Our joints are the natural mechanics that keep our body up and running, quite literally. But unfortunately, they are also susceptible to a number of conditions that cause nagging pain and discomfort. Whether you are hoping to treat a recent injury due to exercise or a persistent problem such as rheumatoid arthritis, topical CBD is a great option. A large percentage of the joint pain that patients experience is due to inflammation, which CBD is great at protecting against.
PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME (PMS)
For thousands of years, women all over the world have been looking for solutions to the pain and discomfort that comes along with PMS. Like so many medical conditions, PMS is difficult to treat generally because the symptoms are so often specific to individual patients. The good news is that many of these adjacent types of pain, such as migraines and digestive cramping, are regulated by the body’s natural ECS. All-day CBD solutions, such as our mint oil tincture or gel caps, are ideal ways to help stave off the different types of discomfort that often come along with PMS.
For those of us who deal with dietary issues and digestive problems, solutions are often few and far between. Not only does our ECS play a role in our food-seeking behavior and appetite, it is also an important regulator of our metabolism and digestion. Our CBD tinctures are easy to take with food and meals, and can greatly aid in smoothing out the digestive process and reducing stomach and intestinal pain on a day-to-day basis.
