Grant says, “If some system is overactive, the endocannabinoid system tends to quiet it down. Even in cases when the brain seems to be depressed, it’s a stabilizing system.”

How CBD helps Reduce Pain
Some people with chronic pain use topical CBD products, in particular, CBD oil, to manage their symptoms. CBD oil may reduce:
Pain, inflammation, overall discomfort related to a variety of health conditions.
The research on CBD products and pain management has been promising.
CBD can offer an alternative for people who have chronic pain and rely on medications, such as opioids, that can be habit-forming and cause more side effects. However, more research is needed to verify the pain-relieving benefits of CBD oil and other products.
