CBD & FIBROMYALGIA
Many of the studies and scientific research we have posted in other articles have mentioned the anti-pain properties that CBD possesses. Anyone that has ever smoked cannabis or consumed CBD can surely attest to the pain relief effects. We can say without a doubt that CBD has helped us with our aches and pains amongst other ailments, but what about something more severe and chronic like Fibromyalgia.
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder that affects the body and is usually wide spread. Affecting Women 4 to 1 over men.
- Widespread pain
- Tenderness to touch
- Headaches / Migraines
- Cognitive difficulties
- Sleep Apnea
- pelvic pain
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
“Fibromyalgia (FM) affects people physically, mentally and socially. Approximately 10 million Americans (2-4%) have FM with a ratio of about 8 to 2, women over men. It occurs in people of all ages, including children. The literal translation of the word fibromyalgia is pain in the muscles, ligaments and tendons. But FM is much more than pain and presents with many other symptoms that vary from person to person.” https://fibroandpain.org/what-is-fibromyalgia-2
Can CBD help?
According to studies, CBD rich cannabis (15% THC) administered to patients does indeed improve symptoms of Fibromyalgia. Treatment showed an 81% success rate amongst patients and improved quality of life as reported by the subjects in the test. See figure 3 in the document source provided. As stated by us and briefly in this article, CBD does help modulate your CB1 receptors, which play a big part in pain that we experience. So, it is no surprise that more and more studies are showing improvements in well-being and pain reduction.
Here is a quote.
“3.3. Effectiveness Analysis
The overall treatment success was achieved in 194 out of 239 patients (81.1%)—proportion of patients reporting at least moderate improvement in their condition while still receiving medical cannabis without experiencing serious adverse events out of patients who either responded to the six months questionnaire or stopped the treatment (Figure 2). Comparison of fibromyalgia-related symptoms among patients at intake and at six months follow-up is shown in Table S4. The sleep problems reported by 196 patients (92.9%) at intake improved in 144 patients (73.4%) and disappeared in 26 patients (13.2%, p < 0.001). Depression-related symptoms reported by 125 patients (59.2%) at the baseline improved in 101 patients (80.8%, p < 0.001).”
If you are taking CBD for Fibromyalgia and are experiencing benefits, pain reduction, and improved quality of life, we ask that you please share your experience and the CBD dosage you are taking with everyone. The more we learn from each other the better. “The pain experience is often described as deep muscular aching, shooting, throbbing, stabbing, pounding, along with many other descriptions, and at times it is unbearable. People with FM do not sleep well, waking up feeling like they have been hit by a "Mack truck," with morning stiffness or spasticity that makes it difficult to move.” Please spread the word and let’s help each other. There are many people out there that have no clue about CBD or its benefits.
