CBD against Fibromyalgia

CBD against Fibromyalgia

People suffering from fibromyalgia find that cannabis works in treating their symptoms, often with less negative side effects than prescription drugs.

What is fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a chronic disease characterized by symptoms of chronic pain, insomnia, migraines, fatigue, joint pain and irritable bowel problems.

People with fibromyalgia suffer from increased sensitivity to pain. This is thought to be caused by an abnormal pain signal function in the central nervous system.

The usual treatments for fibromyalgia are analgesics such as NSAIDs and opioids, muscle relaxants and sleep aids.

Some patients prefer CBD and THC products to treat their fibromyalgia. They are finding that cannabis products are safer and have fewer side effects than the prescription drugs they used to use.

Why does CBD “work” in fibromyalgia?
While more data are needed to confirm this theory, it is believed that fibromyalgia is one of the conditions caused by an endocannabinoid deficiency or dysfunction.

An endocannabinoid deficiency/dysfunction is when a person has a poorly functioning endocannabinoid system. This results from the presence of abnormal levels of endocannabinoids.

If a person’s body does not produce a sufficient amount of endocannabinoids , they will be more sensitive to pain. Endocannabinoids are neuromodulators and regulate our perception of pain. Without an adequate supply of endocannabinoids, the endocannabinoid system cannot do its job of maintaining balance in the body properly – and so people with fibromyalgia experience more pain than usual.

CBD can help our endocannabinoid system. CBD interferes with the body’s natural process of breaking down endocannabinoids. This is good – supplementing with CBD can increase endocannabinoid levels and take care of any deficiency a person may have.

What are the benefits of using CBD in fibromyalgia?
People using cannabis medicine for fibromyalgia report the following benefits:

  • Improved mood
  • Relief from pain
  • Improved sleep
  • Less inflammation
  • Reduction or discontinuation of the drug on prescription and henceforth reduction of negative side effects

    What are the side effects of using CBD in fibromyalgia?
    In general, CBD has minimal negative side effects. However, it may be sedative for some people, especially if used in high doses. Always start with a low dose if you are new to CBD and gradually increase. It’s a good idea to take CBD the first few times in the comfort of your own home, when you don’t have to drive, in case you experience some negative side effects.

How should I use CBD in fibromyalgia?
People with fibromyalgia symptoms find the methods of evaporation or sublingual tinctures better because of the speed of results from these methods.

CBD products, THC products and the combination of CBD/THC products are all effective in treating fibromyalgia. When used in combination, THC and CBD have been found to be particularly effective for pain relief.

If you are completely new to cannabis use, it is always best to start with a CBD product, as it will not be psychotropic and will be less likely to cause negative side effects.

5 – 10 mg of CBD is a good, low dose to start with. Increase the dose as required until you reach the desired result.

Which terpenes are good for helping with fibromyalgia?
The properties of certain terpenes are useful in treating the symptoms of fibromyalgia. These terpenes cooperate with CBD. Try to find products with laboratory results showing higher amounts of these terpenes:

B-caryophilin – anti-inflammatory and pain relief
Pinene – anti-inflammatory
Linalool – Pain relief and relaxation
