Aches and Pains
The topic of aches and pains covers a lot of different conditions. CBD topicals can be rubbed into sore muscles to help give them relief. Ingesting CBD oil drops may be beneficial for people with systemic inflammatory conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis or Multiple Sclerosis [MS]), autoimmune conditions and full body pain, caused by neurological conditions such as fibromyalgia or cancer. It all depends on the sort of pain you are treating. What sort of pain are you experiencing?
Almost 62% of CBD users reported using CBD to treat a medical condition. The top three medical conditions were pain, anxiety, and depression. Almost 36% of respondents reported that CBD treats their medical condition(s) “very well by itself,”. 
Our natural endocannabinoids, the ones that our body creates, function on demand, meaning that when our body senses inflammation or needs to return to homeostasis, (a state of stable balance within our bodies) it will release endocannabinoids that bind to the cannabinoid receptors inside our bodies.
Some research states that CBD itself does not bind to known receptors (e.g. CB1 and CB2) but is thought to work by inducing other components of the cannabinoid system. In fact, CBD exerts a wide array of effects on the body’s central and peripheral nervous systems, as well as the immune system. It works in conjunction with our endocannabinoid system to function in an antioxidant capacity, to decrease inflammation, and to act as an analgesic or pain reliever. CBD may even slow the progression of osteoarthritis and prevent nerve damage, according to early model studies. 
Four Major Types of Pain
There are four major types of pain.
- Nociceptive Pain: Typically the result of tissue injury.
- Inflammatory Pain: An abnormal inflammation caused by an inappropriate response by the body’s immune system.
- Neuropathic Pain: Pain caused by nerve irritation.
- Functional Pain: Pain without obvious origin, but can cause pain.
Which form(s) of pain may CBD be helpful?
Nociceptive Pain: Nociceptors are the nerves which sense and respond to parts of the body which suffer from damage. (E.g. sprains, bone fractures, burns, bumps, bruises, inflammation (from an infection or arthritic disorder), and obstructions to name a few.)
Preclinical and clinical studies suggest a potential anti-nociceptive effect of CBD and CBD combined with other compounds in several pain-related diseases. Analgesic effects may vary depending on the dose and route of drug administration. These studies involved animals and additional research will be needed before any specific conclusion can be drawn.3
Inflammatory Pain: Inflammation is a process characterized by the activation of immune and non-immune cells that protect the host from bacteria, viruses, toxins and infections by eliminating pathogens and promoting tissue repair and recovery. Pain and inflammation walk hand-in-hand.
CBD decreases oxidative stress and systemic inflammation by acting as an antioxidant. CBD may also decrease inflammation by preventing a reductions in micro elements like zinc and selenium, which are important actors for a balanced immune response, and may reduce neuropathic pain (such as fibromyalgia or neuropathic back pain) by countering hyperalgesia (an abnormally heightened pain response).4
While the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD may prove beneficial to patients with arthritis, more studies involving humans are needed.
Neuropathic Pain: Peripheral neuropathy can significantly impact the quality of life for those who are affected, as therapies from the current treatment algorithm often fail to deliver adequate symptom relief. There has, however, been an increasing body of evidence for the use of cannabinoids in the treatment of chronic, noncancer pain. The efficacy of a topically delivered cannabidiol (CBD) oil in the management of neuropathic pain was examined in this four-week, randomized and placebo-controlled trial. This study found that the transdermal application of CBD oil can achieve significant improvement in pain and other disturbing sensations in patients with peripheral neuropathy.5
Functional Pain: The topic of functional pain is very wide-ranging and includes functional pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia; irritable bowel syndrome; chronic cardiac chest pain; arthritis; and temporomandibular dysfunction.
For now, no CBD-based medications are approved as painkillers in the U.S. Epidiolex, which is used for rare forms of epilepsy, is the only CBD treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Meanwhile, several countries have approved CBD to treat certain conditions. For instance, the U.K. approved it for multiple sclerosis, and Canada approved it for cancer pain. Ongoing research suggests CBD oil for pain can aid medical conditions, including arthritis and fibromyalgia, at varying doses. Some pain may not be treatable by CBD alone, but it can help when paired with THC or Western medication applications.
Interestingly, 60% of U.S. adults who use CBD products do so for its potential pain-relieving effects, according to a recent Forbes Health survey of 2,000 U.S. adults conducted by OnePoll.6
There are several forms of CBD meant to provide pain relief. It all depends on what sort of pain needs relieving.
Based on the Forbes poll mentioned above, a majority of U.S. adults are keen on using CBD for potential pain relieving effects. As more and more research is done and human clinical studies are complete, conclusive evidence about how CBD may relieve pain will remain an open topic. However, you can find positive testimonials from those who use it to treat pain on the internet along with plenty of anecdotal information.
The type of CBD product you may want to take will involve what sort of pain you want to treat. Oils, ointments, rubs, and patches all have their place in the treatment of pain.
