CBD for Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder that causes musculoskeletal pain in addition to fatigue and cognitive issues. Since there is currently no known cure for Fibromyalgia, treatment options focus on pain management. CBD has been successfully used by many people living with fibromyalgia to treat chronic pain symptoms and reduce inflammation.
Quality organic CBD products can reduce inflammation and regular use is recommended. However, many users tell us they need less applications over time to achieve the same relief. Users also tell us that they can reduce their opioid use and sometimes eliminate it.
There are many delivery methods to introduce CBD into the body. The most common are inhalation, edibles, and topical use. Topicals are sometimes overlooked but can be highly effective. Topical use of high milligram CBD creams can bring quick relief to painful areas of the body. We recommend at least 500 to 1000 mg per 2 oz for Fibromyalgia treatment. Application to the bottoms of the feet at nighttime can bring systemic relief. Since all quality organic products will run through the human body in 4 to 6 hours, reapplication is often needed throughout the day.
When choosing CBD products examine the label. Make sure that the milligram strength of the CBD in each container is clearly labeled. Look for organic quality ingredients in the formulations. We also recommend products made in the USA where hemp and CBD production is legal and regulated.
Beware of companies that make unrealistic claims. CBD is new to wellness and you need to understand how it may benefit your circumstances. This can only be accomplished through education and trying CBD to see how it may help. Quality CBD manufacturers will be willing to answer questions and help you make good choices. Their websites will contain quality information with an educational emphasis.
Internal and external use of CBD is highly effective for those with systemic pain. If other pharmaceutical or over the counter medications are being used, it is recommended to consult with your physician. There is some indication that CBD may interfere with other medications, like grapefruit can.
