Everyone is talking about Chill CBD Gummies these days. Anecdotal evidence, as well as the growing body of research, shows that CBD (cannabidiol) is useful for inflammation and anxiety. But most of all, people use CBD for chronic pain.
CBD is one of over 100 naturally occurring chemicals called cannabinoids that are found in the Cannabis sativa plant family, which encompasses both hemp and cannabis plants. The reason people like CBD so much is that it doesn’t cause the “high” feeling often associated with marijuana. That “high” is caused by a different cannabinoid called THC.
Diamond CBD sources its CBD oil for all of their products, including their Chill CBD Gummies, from industrial hemp plants. Genetically, these plants are low in THC; in fact, the plants only contain trace amounts of THC, less than 0.3 percent to be exact.
Just how does CBD oil work on pain? It is important to understand how pain originates in the first place. The human brain senses pain and adjusts the strength of the pain signal depending on the intensity of the injury.
Chill CBD Gummies: Types of Pain
Pain is classified into three categories: nociceptive pain, neuropathic pain, and central pain. Each has a different origin, so each has a different treatment approach.
Have you ever heard of a seriously injured person initially walking around after a car accident or battlefield injury? This describes nociceptive pain, meaning physical injury without the sensation of pain. The opposite situation is the pain without a physical injury (central pain), as is the case of fibromyalgia.
Chill CBD Gummies and Nociceptive Pain
Nociceptive pain is inflammatory pain caused by tissue damage. This is the typical sharp pain you feel after a physical injury of some kind. When the body is injured, the body sends immune cells to repair the tissue, and those cells release chemicals that activate nerve receptors that cause the sensation of pain. Chill CBD Gummies works on these receptors. Although it is a plant-based chemical (phytocannabinoid), amazingly, CBD works on human internal cannabinoid (endocannabinoid) receptors. CBD has remarkable anti-inflammatory qualities and can reduce the pain signals at the site of injury by binding to the receptors to block the body’s chemicals that cause inflammation.
It can also decrease pain by acting directly on the brain and spinal cord. CBD increases levels of a chemical called anandamide, which is one of the body’s built-in natural cannabinoids (endocannabinoids). Anandamide then works directly on the brain’s receptors to decrease pain.
Chill CBD Gummies and Neuropathic Pain
Neuropathic pain is another type of pain that is very different from nociceptive pain. Rather than stemming from tissue damage, this pain stems from nerve damage. About 10 percent of the population experiences this type of pain. It can be caused by trauma, such as herniated discs that impinge upon nerves and cause sciatica, or it can be caused by diseases like multiple sclerosis where the protective insulation around the nerves breaks down. Even treatments like chemotherapy can cause neuropathic pain because these drugs destroy many types of cells in the body, including nerve cells.
Nerve pain is difficult to treat because it’s difficult to target. CBD is turning out to show great promise as a treatment option for neuropathic pain because it activates the body’s serotonin receptors which helps the body produce more serotonin to combat nerve pain. CBD also binds with and activates receptors (CB1) that reduce pain in their activated form.
Chill CBD Gummies and Central Pain
What about central pain? This is a bit of a general term that describes everything else that is not nociceptive or neuropathic pain. Central pain is generally present without any known injury, so as you might imagine, it is extremely difficult to treat. We mentioned fibromyalgia earlier, and it is a classic example; there is dysfunction in the way that the pain signals reach the brain, and it causes this type of central pain.
There is relatively little research regarding something like Chill CBD Gummies and central pain, but the few studies that do exist focus on fibromyalgia. Patients have found relief with CBD and some even stopped taking other pain medications because it worked so well.
While much more CBD research is needed, the research takeaway regarding pain is that CBD is effective and has fewer and much less severe side effects than many alternatives on the market today. Products rich in CBD can be a great long-term treatment option for chronic pain.
Chill CBD Gummies: CBD Edibles
There are many CBD edible products on the market today, and you might be feeling a little overwhelmed in choosing one. How can you be certain you are choosing the right one? Chill CBD Gummies are categorized as a CBD edible and represent a great way to get your daily dose of CBD.
In general, edibles take up to an hour to reach maximum effect because they first must be digested. CBD is non-toxic, so you can’t overdose, but you might feel other symptoms because your body is not yet used to the high CBD levels. Every individual has a different experience with CBD. Reaction time to an edible is dependent on many factors, including your genetics because people have varying numbers of endocannabinoid receptors. Factors like your weight also make a difference, as does the type of edible you choose.
Edibles are usually stronger than other forms of CBD for two reasons. First, edibles tend to contain highly concentrated CBD that is more potent. Second, because you’re ingesting an edible, your body is metabolizing it, and metabolizing CBD does, in fact, make the effect much stronger.
Like any form of cannabis, edibles must be consumed responsibly. We label all our packages with ingredients and strict instructions regarding how many edibles to take in a given time period.
