Does CBD work for pain?Updated 7 months ago
Research has found that CBD may help alleviate both inflammatory and neuropathic pain. Studies also show that CBD taken in conjunction with opioids is more effective than opioids alone, suggesting its use may help patients reduce opioid dosage. Research suggests that CBD works for pain by inhibiting the breakdown of the endocannabinoid anandamide, which plays a role in pain regulation and whose increased levels in the bloodstream appear to have analgesic or pain reducing effects.
