Pain can come in variety of forms including nociceptive pain (caused by damage to the tissues, muscles, joints, tendons, or bones), neuropathic pain (caused by damage to the nervous system), and inflammatory pain (caused by inflammation to the tissues, muscles, joints, tendons, or bones). Each type of pain can be chronic (long-lasting, typically longer than 3-6 months), or acute pain (lasting typically less or within 3-6 months). Acute pain can be treated with simple solutions such as acetaminophen (otherwise known as Tylenol) and some good rest; but chronic pain on the other hand can last for very long periods of time, often being unbearable. There are many methods for managing chronic pain such as therapy or pain medications, but these aren’t always effective, and pain medications can be very addictive. For those suffering from chronic pain, using CBD oil for pain provides a natural alternative that research has indicated can be very effective.
