Are you a chronic back pain sufferer who has tried everything to alleviate your pain from quick tips to extensive exercise routines, only to find that nothing works for you?
In and out of the doctor’s office with little to no comfort other than some painkillers and a prescription to rest. The mainstream healthcare system will have you believe that your only option is injections or surgery if you truly want to rid yourself of pain and discomfort.
But injections can be incredibly painful and who wants to sub out one pain for another? They also rarely have the results you would expect.
And surgery only leads to more complications in the future. Not only will you be stuck in a hospital with long recovery times and even more medications, surgery often leads to further surgeries and potentially sooner than you might think!
We understand that millions of people would rather try alternative out-of-the-box treatments before resorting to surgery and that’s why we see so many patients come into our clinic to try alternative yet safe and effective treatments. Including CBD.
However, in the clinic, we have discovered there are many misconceptions or lack of understanding about what CBD is and what it can be used for. That’s why we have created this blog to highlight the most common questions around CBD and give you the opportunity to understand this treatment and how effective it can be for your chronic pain!
What Is CBD?
Firstly it is important to understand on a scientific level, what is CBD.
CBD is a naturally occurring compound in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, another well-known compound of the plant, CBD does not produce the psychoactive effect commonly associated with cannabis use.
Does CBD Make You High?
CBD does not make you high. The psychoactive effect of cannabis is caused by the compound THC, whereas CBD does not produce this effect.
The effect of CBD is only beneficial to you as a form of muscle relaxant and or stress relaxant. Perfect for those with back pain.
Is CBD A Drug?
CBD is not considered a drug by the FDA, but rather a dietary supplement. This means that it is not regulated as a drug, but rather as a food supplement.
So don’t worry, you won’t be arrested at a traffic stop because you have CBD n your possession.
Does CBD Show Up On A Drug Test?
While CBD itself does not show up on most drug tests, some CBD products may contain trace amounts of THC. This means that those taking CBD should be cautious when it comes to drug testing as it is possible to test positive.
That’s why it is important to take care in choosing your CBD products and always opt for a quality source of CBD.
In our clinic, we work with leading cannabis expert Summer Hanson, owner of CBD House of Healing, to ensure the highest quality product and make sure our information regarding CBD is factual and up to date.
