Neuropathic Pain Relief
Neuropathic pains are caused by nerve damage, of which the most common causes are multiple sclerosis, strokes and spinal injury. The pain it causes can vary from acute to chronic depending on the individual and the cause, and is often described as burning, shooting, stabbing, prickling, electric shock-like pain, with hypersensitivity to touch, movement, temperature and pressure. A study made in 2006 suggested some 8% of Europeans suffer from it and for 5% it is severe.
It is believed that the interaction between CBD and our endocannabinoid receptors can help relieve these pains and one study indicated the effectiveness of orally consuming CBD with a result of significantly reduced nerve pain and inflammation.
