What is CBD cream and how does it work?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid present in cannabis plants. It is a non-psychoactive compound, which will not get you high. Manufacturers extract it from hemp plants, which have an abundance of CBD, but a negligible THC level. They use the extract to make different products, like CBD cream. It is a topical that contains CBD, and you can apply it directly to your skin.

CBD topicals like creams work by interacting with the endocannabinoid system. It is a highly complex cellular structure that primarily governs feelings of pain and pleasure. The system produces neurotransmitters called cannabinoids that bind with receptors to initiate change. When you use CBD cream, the cannabinoids communicate with the receptors present on the skin and can bring relief from pain and skin disorders.

How can they help with pain management?

Here are five compelling ways CBD cream can help your body with pain management:

1. CBD Cream Can Alleviate Chronic Pain and Inflammation

Suffering from pain can hinder your life’s pace and prevent you from carrying out routine tasks. While you can take painkillers to reduce pain, they come with their side-effects.

CBD cream can help alleviate pain in a natural way. You can apply the cream to the affected area, and the skin will absorb the cannabinoids. By communicating with the receptors, it can reduce pain instantly. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can also alleviate inflammation.

2. It May Help With Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a severe auto-immune disease in which the immune system starts attacking your tissues. People who have rheumatoid arthritis have to suffer through chronic pain and inflammation near the joints. Using CBD-infused creams can help bring down both pain and inflammation, offering much-needed relief. According to a study, a cannabis-based medicine Sativex can help treat pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis.

3. It Can Treat Dermatitis

While dermatitis is a skin condition that causes red and itchy patches on the skin, it can also lead to immense pain and irritation. It usually affects people who live in colder regions, and the skin turns dry and flaky.

In case you’re tired of the traditional treatment like corticosteroid creams, you can opt for CBD creams for dermatitis. The anti-inflammatory properties can also help reduce pain and itchiness. 

4. It May Reduce Migraine

Migraine, a common neurological disorder, can cause excruciating headaches, numbness, nausea, and sensitivity to light. Excessive headaches can also affect your ability to carry out day-to-day tasks.

The cannabinoid CBD present in the cream helps prevent the synthesis of anandamide, a molecule that regulates your mood. By ensuring an increased level of anandamide, CBD prepares the body to fight migraine headaches. The cannabinoid can also help with nausea and vomiting.

5. It Can Alleviate Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a painful auto-immune skin disorder in which skin regeneration occurs rapidly. This leads to dead skin accumulating rapidly and causing immense pain.

When you apply CBD cream, the cannabinoid can bind with receptors to help you with pain and redness. It can stop the growth of epidermal cells, keratinocytes.
