Chronic pain causes a huge burden of disease globally. One way CBD may work to reduce pain is by working as an anandamide reuptake inhibitor and thereby leaving more anandamide – one of your natural endocannabinoids in your body which can alter neurotransmission and reduce pain.
CBD oil in the form of capsules, tinctures and topicals are all good ways to try CBD. Start with a low dose and increase to find what works for you – our dosage guide is available here
