The Power of Hemp in Combating Pain

If you experience chronic pain, taking medication is one way to find relief. Medications like NSAIDs and opioids are effective for many patients, but they can cause unwanted side effects and aren’t ideal for everyone.

Pacific Pain & Regenerative Medicine, with offices in Irvine and Los Angeles, California, is proud to offer hemp extract, an innovative new ingredient that brings long-term pain management with minimal to no side effects. Discover from board-certified interventional pain management specialist, Hasan Badday, MD, why hemp is so powerful at making chronic pain go away.

Understanding hemp extract

Hemp extract is a type of cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid found within marijuana, hemp extract has no psychoactive properties.

When used in high-quality, concentrated formulations, hemp extract offers an effective way to manage pain. The hemp extract spray and cream sold by Pacific Pain & Regenerative Medicine, uses hemp extract that is organic, highly concentrated, and GMO and THC-free.

The benefits of hemp in your pain management treatment

Hemp extract offers many benefits to anyone managing significant pain. Along with reducing your chronic pain, hemp extract is non-addictive and has no major side effects.

Hemp extract reduces long-term pain

A review of research shows that hemp extract, along with other cannabinoids, is effective at relieving chronic pain. It works by sending messages through your endocannabinoid receptors that activate dopamine, your body’s reward and pleasure center, which reduces pain and inflammation.

Hemp extract has been shown to reduce chronic pain in a variety of conditions. These include arthritis, cancer, neuropathic pain, and migraines.

Hemp extract is a non-addictive pain management solution

Pain medications such as opioids are highly effective at relieving chronic pain but also can be highly addictive and habit forming. There is no evidence that hemp extract is similarly addictive, making it a great alternative to prescription pain medications if you need long-term pain relief.

Hemp extract has few or no side effects

The research completed on CBD products in humans shows that side effects are minimal, making them safe to take over a long period of time. The most common side effects you might experience are diarrhea, increased tiredness, and a change in appetite.

How to take hemp extract to manage pain

For it to be effective as a pain management solution, you need to take hemp extract in a concentrated medical formulation. Our team at Pacific Pain & Regenerative Medicine offers hemp extract as a cream and spray.
