CHOCOLATE WITH CBD IN IT TO HELP EASE PAIN…

Chocolate with CBD in it sounds like a match made in heaven to me I don’t know about you?

I researched it and found out that according, to the website Cheerful Buddha, CBD infused with dark chocolate has a high content of antioxidants in the form of flavanols and polyphenols both of which have been linked to heart health and increasing blood flow to the brain.

It wasn’t long before I found lots of information about how chocolate with CBD in it can definitely help with pain. “THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and that is what causes the feeling or sensation of getting “high. However, unlike THC, CBD is NOT psychoactive.” This feature makes CBD a very attractive option for those looking for a pain reliever, or other symptoms without having the mind-altering effects of marijuana or other pharmaceutical drugs. Not only is CBD a pain reliever, but it can also reduce anxiety and depression, alleviate cancer-related symptoms, may reduce acne, and as mentioned before is good for the heart and many other potential benefits, writes Maui Chocolate & Coffee.

It is also known for its potent antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective effects.

The effects of a CBD chocolate bar are very similar to any other consumption method. Of course, these will vary from person to person. Most CBD users say that chocolate edibles help them to feel relaxed and calm, and allow them to unwind from daily stress, writes Premium Jane and they can also explain how you can make it yourself.

CBD coffee is also another find which seems to be on most websites that advertise CBD chocolate. Cheerful Buddha sell it ground, beans, decaffeinated, and they offer 10% off if you sign up to their newsletter, but most offer that for your first purchase.

All of the above information has made me want to give it a try as I am a chocaholic through and through. I found such a variation on the prices from £2.90 to over £20.

Some of the sites that caught my eye were Themptation who have quite an array of CBD Chocolate including CBD Mint Chocolate (one of my favourites) 40g bar for £3.55 melt in the mouth 74% Organic dark chocolate infused with our raw CBD oil. The 40g bars are also wrapped in a 100% home compostable film wrapper.

If you are not into dark chocolate then Radek’s Chocolate have a milk chocolate bar at £2.90 for 32g. Radek’s Chocolate have combined forces with Bristol CBD to offer this delicious, (and surprisingly vegan!) velvet smooth, Cashew Milk CBD Chocolate Bar. For an extra rich and satisfying experience, we’ve blended our carefully crafted cashew cream taste with the many benefits of CBD oil in this organic, vegan chocolate bar. Each 84g Cashew Milk CBD Chocolate Bar contains 42mg of Bristol CBD’s legendary 5% whole plant CBD oil made from organically grown hemp extract. Each 32g bar contains 16mg CBD. THey also sell CBD Brownies and CBD Coffee.

The funny thing was that I was actually going online to look for some CBD Tea when a chocolate bar popped it’s head up…..

IS CBD SUITABLE FOR FIBROMYALGIA PAIN?…

CBD is an effective therapeutic agent. It can be used to deal with uncommon varieties of epilepsy and suggests a great promise in the remedy of issues for other conditions like multiple sclerosis. Outside of the clinic, CBD is gaining traction in the fitness industry. It is governing our mood and enhances the intellectual and bodily wellness of humans all over the world.

Anyone living with a chronic condition will know just how much it interferes with each and every aspect of your life. Since prescription pain medications are limited by countless risks and side effects, many are turning to CBD to ease symptoms of chronic conditions, including fibromyalgia.

I wrote an article last year on CBD, IT’S BENEFITS & AWARENESS DAY 8TH AUGUST, which explains a bit more about the different types of products available and how they can help with some health problems.

CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is an active ingredient found in the Cannabis sativa plant. It is one of over 100 natural cannabinoids, but unlike its psychoactive counterpart tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD cannot get you high.

CBD merges with our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which a biological network that plays a crucial role in governing our mood, energy levels, immune system, appetite, sleep, pain approach, and much more.

With many fibromyalgia patients finding it hard to find the right treatment/medication for the pain associated with fibromyalgia, a number of patients have turned to CBD products to help.

Many patients have found CBD to be a blessing in reducing pain and inflammation, improving moods and sleep, and helping to combat fibromyalgia fatigue. There is also some up-and-coming scientific evidence to support this.

One reason CBD can help with the pain in fibromyalgia is by helping to regulate ECS activity, which is responsible for maintaining a homeostatic balance in the body, particularly between the immune system and the nervous system. 

CBD has potent anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can be effective pain relief, particularly for neuropathic pain, and CBD can also be hugely favourable to our mental well-being. It is not uncommon for people living with fibromyalgia to experience anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. Our mood is largely dependent on our serotonin levels, CBD may help to alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression.

CBD can be used as a natural sleep aid, so it may help to remedy some of the sleeping problems often associated with fibromyalgia which scientists think may help by reducing pain or boosting our serotonin.   

Cannabis has shown to have a significant positive effect on fibromyalgia symptoms, but there hasn’t yet but it is early days on research into the effect of CBD alone.

Howeverhigh CBD/low THC strains of cannabis seem to be more effective at managing pain than high THC/low CBD strains, which is some pretty solid evidence of CBD’s pain-relieving properties.    

According to an article in Leafie The World Health Organisation has said that CBD is a safe and well-tolerated substance, even at high doses. The only reported side effects include nausea, appetite changes, and fatigue, but these are rare and minor in comparison to many prescription drugs.

It is, however, important to speak to your doctor before choosing to take CBD, especially if you’re on medication. This is because CBD has been shown to interact with some other drugs, which can be harmful to our liver. If you feel as though CBD could benefit you more than the medication that you are currently on, do not make the switch until you have spoken to a professional.
