Treating Fibromyalgia with Cannabidiol (CBD) Oil.
Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disease that has similar symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and lupus but is distinct in that the main points in the body it attacks are the muscles, causing pain, inflammation and a tender sensation.
It is considered a very common disease – “Scientists estimate that fibromyalgia affects 5 million Americans 18 or older. Between 80 and 90 percent of people diagnosed with fibromyalgia are women.”
Because of the immune system regulating properties of cannabidiol oil, it has been shown in studies to effectively treat fibromyalgia, as well as other autoimmune diseases: “Several clinical trials in multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and fibromyalgia suggest CBD’s effectiveness as an immune modulator.”
What about pharmaceutical grade Synthetic Cannabinoids for Fibromyalgia treatment?
Many people falsely assume that synthetic cannabinoids are better for you than the raw cannabinoids from the CBD plant.
Research involving a synthetic cannabinoid for Fibromyalgia Relief showed that the particular synthetic cannabinoid being studied, Nabilone, was not beneficial to people with Fibromyalgia.
While it may seem more acceptable to use pharmaceutical grade synthetic cannabinoids to treat symptoms, the fact remains that synthetics are manipulated by Big Pharma and not a raw, or pure, form of cannabinoids.
Why is this significant?
The anti-inflammatory and neuropathic pain reduction properties of CBD and many other cannabinoids are being proven over and over again through a wide body of research. See this 2009 study regarding CBD relieving neuropathic pain.
Yet, Nabilone (a synthetic cannabinoid) was shown to have no value in treating Fibromyalgia.
There are some things in Nature that are perfect, or close to perfect, as they are. Nature has supplied us with raw, pure Cannabinoids that prove themselves study after study.
We do not believe that synthetics are any better than raw cannabinoids and science seems to back up our beliefs in this matter.
While research an studies show that Cannabidiol, or CBD oil, may be very beneficial for Fibromyalgia pain, please consult with your physician before adding CBD to your treatment plan.
