THE BEST CBD OILS FOR FIBROMYALGIA AND HOW TO USE THEM…

CBD oils for the treatment of Fibromyalgia seems to be getting more and more publicity in magazines and online. According to Medical News Today researchers cannot decisively say why the compound appears to reduce some fibromyalgia symptoms, or why it works for some people and not others, but researchers are currently testing some theories.

The pain relieving effects of CBD are likely down to its effects on the brain. It may interrupt the nerve pathways that send signals of pain between the brain and the rest of the body. CBD and other cannabinoids attach to specialized receptors in a person’s brain. One of these receptors, called a CB2 receptor, plays a role in managing pain and inflammation.

Cannabidiol is a compound derived from marijuana. CBD can’t get you high, as it doesn’t contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) like marijuana. Only a small percentage of people feel euphoric effects similar to those of marijuana. Studies have suggested that CBD reduces glial cell activity. Over-activity of these cells causes increased reaction to sensation. This is a symptom of fibromyalgia.

Many CBD oil users have reported relief of pain, insomnia, muscle tension, and anxiety. These are all FM symptoms.

The Island Now has researched in great detail the best CBD oils for Fibromyalgia. They wrote that factors that helped them list the best CBD oils for Fibro included the quality of hemp as this greatly responsible for determining the quality of CBD products, the extract types, lab results, potencies, size variants, taste, ingredients, brand reputation, transparency, website experience, customer service and shipping of the product. So, everything has been taken into consideration before they put the list together.

The Island Now top five CBD Oils for Fibromyalgia in 2021 are –

  1. FabCBD’s CBD Oil – Overall Best & Editor’s Choice
  2. CBDistillery’s CBD Oil – Best Value
  3. NuLeaf Naturals’ CBD Oil – Most Potent & Full-Spectrum Oil
  4. cbdMD’s CBD Oil – Best Variety
  5. Joy Organics’ CBD Oil – Best Broad-Spectrum Oil For Fibromyalgia

Soc Health explain the different ways to use CBD Oil for Fibromyalgia. Smoking or vaping brings immediate pain relief that lasts up to three hours. People with respiratory issues shouldn’t intake CBD this way.

CBD oil comes as a tincture, cream, and pill. Creams are especially good for inflammation and tender areas on the body. Tinctures are extracts that can be put directly into the mouth or mixed with food or a drink. They’re usually in a dropper bottle, making it a discreet medication for those who need it during the day. This method gives four to five hours of relief and activates in about thirty minutes. Tinctures can come in spray form. The oil is meant to be sprayed under the tongue.

CBD can be ingested through foods, butter, or oil. It takes longer for the drug to relieve pain, but it lasts for up to six hours.

The most important thing is that you check and double check the correct CBD dosage. Going over the prescribed dose is unlikely to endanger you, but it won’t work effectively. High doses can cause confusion and sleepiness. And, as I always mention on a post like these never try any CBD product without talking to your GP first.

3 NATURAL PAIN REMEDIES TO INCORPORATE INTO YOUR DAILY ROUTINE…

If you suffer from back pain, you will know how frustrating it can be to have to cancel plans or events because your back is flaring up. Whether this pain comes from an old injury, a condition such as scoliosis or another reason, managing it daily is a crucial part of being able to fulfil your achievements and live life to the fullest.

While you should consult a doctor for prescribed pain medication if necessary, managing your pain day-to-day is about more than medication. Medication might be vital to help you, but there are additional activities and remedies you can use to supplement these medications for long term relief. 

Let’s take a look at three natural remedies to incorporate into your daily routine.

CBD products have skyrocketed into the mainstream in the past five years. CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural relaxing agent that is legal in many countries around the world. Without producing any kind of “high” effect, CBD is said to relax anxiety, help depression, and most importantly, alleviate pain. 

  1. CBD Products

Helpful CBD products include…

  • CBD creams, including skincare and muscle rubs.
  • CBD tablets that can be taken with daily supplements.
  • CBD gummies U.K. that are delicious and easy to munch on throughout the day.

If you are unsure about how CBD would work for your back pain, why not try it out and see for yourself? Thousands of people around the world have found effective pain relief using CBD!

  1. More Movement

Having back pain often prevents us from doing as much exercise or movement as we want to do. If your doctor or physiotherapist has recommended rest, it is important to adhere to those instructions. If you have a sore back day-to-day and are not on rest orders, however, it is very useful to move more often. Our bodies are designed to move in fluid motion, and many of us don’t fulfil that design due to desk jobs and other commitments! 

If you are worried about doing hard exercise with back pain, here are a few non-aggressive exercises that build muscle strength without too much joint or skeleton pressure.

  • Swimming. Swimming is a fantastic form of exercise that builds strength and cardiovascular fitness, without requiring any joint pressure. Plus, it’s super relaxing. What more could you want?
  • Yoga. Gentle yoga practice focuses on breathing, core strength and stretching out our muscles and joints.
  1. Self-Massage

Self-massage is a great way to take your back pain into your own hands. There are different ways to massage your own back, including:

  • Using a foam roller. Foam rollers are a perfect way to align your spine and massage those tight back muscles every morning or evening.
  • A yoga bolster. Yoga Bolsters are like softer versions of foam rollers, helping to soothe aching muscles.
  • Massaging your own neck and shoulders. The parts of your back you can easily reach can be massaged with soothing balms for immediate muscle relaxation.

Use this guide to help you achieve a pain-free back every day, so you can get on with the things that matter to you!
