USING HEMP OIL FOR PHYSICAL DISCOMFORT
Physical discomfort is one of the biggest issues in the wellness world, and it can come from many sources such as injury, illness, and disability. There are many health challenges that cause debilitating discomfort in people’s bodies, stopping people in their tracks and making activities of daily living more and more difficult. Prescription medications used for pain cause a number of unwanted side effects and come with the added risk of addiction. More and more, people are turning to natural hemp-based products to decrease physical discomfort without the unwanted side effects.
How Does Hemp Oil Help?
Science has shown that full spectrum hemp oil interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the body. This happens entirely without psychoactive effects or altering behavior. Hemp helps bring the body into homeostasis, or balance, and this can help decrease the core conditions causing feelings of physical discomfort.
Hemp oil affects anandamide, a chemical that controls our experience of discomfort. Thanks to hemp, the body won’t retain anandamide and discomfort is decreased. Hemp-based products also interact with the mind and nervous system, helping to diminish aggravation and irritation that comes with physical challenges. As an immune system booster, hemp oil products support the body’s ability to deal with all crucial functions better, potentially leading to an overall boost in health.
How to Use Hemp Oil for Physical Discomfort
While it’s perfectly acceptable and beneficial to take hemp oil orally, using capsules or tinctures, this method can take some time for the nutrients to get into the body and work their magic. With a salve, the hemp oil is applied onto the skin, dermally, right at the site of the discomfort. This allows the active ingredients to reach the painful area much quicker for faster relief. We recommend trying both methods to see what works best for you. It’s always best to start with lower doses and work up in dose, concentration, or frequency as needed.
It’s simply not worth it to suffer through physical discomfort and lose quality of life due to distress and fatigue caused by it. Using hemp-based, full-spectrum oil is a valid option for many people, as it’s possible to utilize all of the beneficial cannabinoids contained in the whole plant and there’s no worry of being grounded by feeling “high.” It’s actually quite nutritious and benefits many other conditions and physical states in the body, such as appetite, peaceful sleep and rest, and more.
