All of which are said to respond well to CBD supplementation for some patients.

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.
