One of the leading reasons aging adults seek medical attention is for pain relief. As we age, those little aches and pains can become more chronic, even severe, negatively impacting our quality of life. Rather than reaching for an over-the-counter pain reliever, what if you could reduce—or better yet, completely eliminate—pain using a natural alternative instead?
How Does CBD Relieve Pain?
To begin to understand how CBD aids in pain management, it is important to learn how it works in the human body. In the early 1990s, researchers discovered the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which plays a role in maintaining certain body functions, such as mood, appetite, immunity responses, metabolism, memory, sleep—essentially, homeostasis or balance in the body.
Like other vital systems in the body, the ECS can become deficient due to stress, toxins, and trauma. This deficiency can cause various chronic and painful conditions such as joint inflammation, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, as well as other inflammatory and neurologic conditions. While our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids, if the levels are not sufficient, supplementation with CBD is key in maintaining anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects.

What Else Should I Know?
Always consult your doctor before you begin taking a supplement or make any changes to your existing medication and supplement routine. This is not medical advice, but it is information you can use as a conversation starter with your physician at your next appointment.
