The idea of using CBD oil while undergoing chiropractic care may sound strange at first glance. The fact is, treatment by a chiropractor and CBD go hand-in-hand. Both treatments are natural, non-addictive, and effective. We at Lowery Chiropractic in Tallahassee can help you get relief from pain and educate you on the use of CBD oil for pain relief.

Understanding CBD or Cannabidiol

Cannabidiol, or CBD oil, is an active ingredient that is derived from the hemp plant instead of the marijuana plant. Hemp has little to no psychoactive properties which means the consumption of hemp will not result in getting high.

How CBD Oil Works

The main effect of CBD is that of an anti-inflammatory. Studies have shown that CBD oil lowers the amount of inflammatory cytokines, restricts the production of T cells and lowers the movement and adherence of immune cells throughout the body. When the body has lower levels of inflammatory agents in circulation, there is less pain and faster recovery from a condition.

What is CBD Oil Used For?

CBD oil is used to treat childhood epilepsy, anxiety, insomnia, and is shown to be an effective topical for pain reduction. It is also showing promise as a treatment for chronic pain conditions.

Is CBD Oil Safe?

CBD oil, by and large, is a safe product even though it is not regulated by the FDA. It is considered a supplement as opposed to a medical treatment despite being studied extensively by the medical community. However, CBD oil manufacturers are seeking to elevate their product and are working towards growing plants for a consistent yield. They are also engaging in the use of laboratory testing to ensure consistency in each batch that is sold.

The side effects of CBD oil are irritability and fatigue. It is also known to act on the bloodstream in the same way grapefruit juice does in that it can increase the level of certain medications. However, CBD oil is not addictive and has no psychoactive effect on the brain.

CBD Oil and Chiropractic Care

CBD and chiropractic care go hand in hand. People seek out a chiropractor for relief from chronic pain. Oftentimes, the cause of the pain is difficult to treat through traditional medicine. Chiropractic treatment takes a different approach to pain by addressing the source of pain along with the surrounding structures. CBD oil has the potential to improve the outcome of chiropractic care by reducing inflammation and thereby reducing pain.
