cbd for fibromyalgia❕
☹️ fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder that causes musculoskeletal pain
👩 it mostly affects women & there is currently no cure but cbd can help
🧠 the neuropathic pain relieving effects of cbd are down to its effects on the brain. It interrupts the nerve pathways that send signals of pain between the brain and the rest of the body
🔥 cbd may attach to cb2 receptors in the brain which plays a role in managing pain & inflammation, or it may cause the body to produce natural cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) that attach to these receptors. This would then result in reduced pain and inflammation.
📋 a large survey conducted in 2021 of CBD use among participants with fibromyalgia.
💊 participants typically tried CBD due to inadequate relief from other medications
😃 approximately 40% reported much or very much relief across symptom domains from using cbd
😴 the study also reported in addition to the pain – cbd helped the with associated issues like anxiety and sleep disturbances
