CBD oil for pain relief

Chronic pain affects one in five South African adults [1]. Studies and anecdotal evidence suggest that cannabidiol (CBD) may help reduce chronic and acute pain by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system helps maintain homeostasis, ensuring that all internal organs are functioning optimally, reducing the risk of physical and mental illness. 

Endocannabinoid receptors, a key component of the endocannabinoid system, are present throughout the brain and spinal cord. The spinal cord carries pain messages to the brain for processing and reaction. CBD interacts with endocannabinoid receptors to decrease pain and inflammation [2], [3], [4], [5]. 

Studies on CBD oil for chronic and acute pain reduction

CBD can complement an existing pain management plan. It is versatile too, having positive effects on acute, neuropathic, and inflammatory pain conditions.  

Cannabis Africa Pain Gel contains naturally sourced active ingredients that target pain at specific sites, from inflamed muscles and joints to minor sprains and strains. Its main ingredient, CBD isolate (99% pure CBD), has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. Other ingredients such as Devil’s claw, Arnica, and menthol also play a part in soothing various types of pain, helping improve the overall quality of life.
