Back pain is one of the common problems faced by many people. Many are using CBD creams for relieving their back pain and they claim that CBD is effective for back pain. Studies also confirmed the efficacy of CBD for pain relief. In this article, we are discussing some questions frequently asked by new CBD users.
Yes, CBD can help to relieve your back pain. CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system (ECS) present in our body. The ECS is responsible for regulating many bodily functions and they play an important part in making you feel pain. CBD binds to various receptors in the ECS and blocks pain signals from the brain. Applying CBD cream makes the CBD compound bind to ECS receptors present on the skin and this will reduce the intensity of pain you feel.
Applying crude CBD oil on your back is of no use. Absorption of CBD into your skin is necessary for effective pain relief. CBD requires a fat base for ample absorption into your skin. Keep in mind that CBD oil is not prepared with any fat bases and hence CBD absorption will be very less in case of applying it to the skin.
Rather than using CBD oil, go for CBD creams. CBD creams work on the skin efficiently because CBD molecules are suspended in efficient fat bases and this increases the absorption of CBD by the skin. CBD creams may also contain other ingredients like cayenne pepper, arnica, menthol, etc that can help with pain relief, moisturization, and skin protection.
You can apply CBD creams whenever you feel pain in your back. CBD is safe to use and applying CBD many times a day will not cause any side effects. Take a generous amount of CBD cream and rub it on the area you have pain. If you have wounds, it is better not to apply creams to the wound.
Currently, there are no studies regarding whether pregnant women can use CBD creams or not. There are no known side effects for pregnant women using CBD creams, but we also don’t know whether CBD creams can anyhow affect the baby.
