CBD & Chiropractic Focus

CBD is shown to relax the muscles making it a good tool ahead of adjustment. Massaging a CBD topical into the affected area may achieve a faster and more thorough adjustment.

Pain

Several studies have proved CBD can reduce pain for a variety of conditions. Currently, most of the research revolves around how CBD relieves pain.By triggering the endocannabinoid system, CBD can reduce nociceptive transmission of pain throughout the nervous system to reduce pain, particularly in the spine and brain. Specifically, the exogenous cannabinoids bind to the CB1 or CB2 receptor, triggering a reduction in pain.

Inflammation & Diabetes

CBD can also trigger various pathways to reduce inflammation. As a result, it works exceptionally well for people with rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions related to inflammation. According to the study, “Antioxidative and Anti-Inflammatory Properties of Cannabidiol,”Sinemyiz Atalay, Iwona Jarocka-Karpowicz, and Elzbieta Skrzydlewska “The therapeutic potential of CBD has been evaluated in cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, cancer, and metabolic diseases, which are usually accompanied by oxidative stress and inflammation. One of the best-studied uses of CBD is for therapeutic effect in diabetes and its complications in animal and human studies. CBD, by activating the cannabinoid receptor, CB2, has been shown to induce vasodilation in Type 2 diabetic rats, and by activating 5-HT1A receptors, CBD showed a therapeutic effect in diabetic neuropathy.”
