CBD for Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a crippling disease that affects many aspects of one’s life. Chronic wide spread pain with inflammation, tenderness to touch, and chronic fatigue go hand in hand with it. It is thought to be the most common musculoskeletal (muscle & skeletal) after osteoarthritis (arthritis causing joint deterioration). It is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood. It can lead to depression and social isolation. It can lead to sleep, mood, and memory issues for some.  Not a whole lot is known about fibromyalgia, however many are diagnosed with it every day. Several pharmaceutical medications such as opiate painkillers, antidepressants, corticosteroids are the commonly prescribed for this disease every day. Yet they have little effect on the disease itself. It has been determined that the person with fibromyalgia has over-active nerve endings. Thus, telling my mind to give CBD a try because of the CB receptors already in our bodies. I know that CBD helps with inflammation, pain, sleep, fatigue, and mood from my experience in using CBD for myself.

The National Center for Biotechnology Information is a part of the US National Library of Medicine, a branch of the National Institutes of Medicine. They published a report stating cannabis was somewhat beneficial in treating fibromyalgia. CBD being the non-psychoactive part of the cannabis family would make it more preferable to someone like me. However, more studies are needed in this field. See what the NCBI published on the subject for yourself. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21533029

I suspect that the endocannabinoid system is deficient in the body with the symptoms present with this disease. Therefore, treating with CBD will replenish the endocannabinoid system and could possibly result in better treatment results. Here again, see for yourself what the NCBI published on the very subject.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18404144

So, I encourage you to do your own research and talk to your physician before starting any type of dietary supplement.
