Research studies are showing some positive results in using cannabis oil for pain relief. It’s being used for both acute and chronic pain, for muscle spasms, arthritis, and injuries. While the investigation is just beginning, preliminary results are showing great promise.
There are different methods of delivery that can be used, including vaping (inhaling the vapor), tinctures, higher concentrated FECO (full extract) products, and topical salves and ointments. Often, pain sufferers will take it both internally and externally, so that the topical can be put right onto the area that is hurting.
There are also different options in cannabis oil for pain in terms of the relative levels of CBD and THC. Although some people prefer to stay away from THC, in a well-balanced product, there is generally no feeling of being “high.” Products with a higher concentration of THC than is found in the typical hemp-based CBD product are often found to be more effective.
If you’re suffering from pain and want to give cannabis products a try, it can be hard to sort through all the myriad of options out there. Look for one that is pesticide-free and tested by a third-party lab, so you can be sure that it really has the potency claimed. The best companies will have consultants available to help you make the best choice for your situation.
