You also might be curious about which product to pick. There are so many different hemp products out there, and with different applications too, that it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and confused about where to start. Hopefully this article will simplify that process for you by covering the ways that hemp can treat pain as well as the differences between topical and oral hemp products.
How Can Hemp Help With My Pain
Hemp has been shown to impact a variety of biological processes within the body in order to mitigate aches and pains. Evidence points to hemp having anti-inflammatory properties as well as having the ability to work as an antioxidant, an analgesic, and to soothe anxiety which can sometimes be associated with those who experience chronic pain. Just check out this review from 2020! It reports that hemp could be beneficial for not only relieving chronic pain, but also improving sleep and general wellbeing.
So, you think hemp might be able to help with your pain management, but you’re not sure whether to choose a topical product or an oral product. Keep reading to learn about the difference.
Topical Hemp Products
The phrase “topical hemp products” just refers to products infused with hemp that can be applied on your skin directly to sore muscles, inflamed areas, and stiff joints. Lotions, creams, oils, and salves are all examples of topical products. When topical hemp products are applied to your skin, they are absorbed into the tissue of the application site, the cannabidiol compounds attaching to the skin’s cannabinoid receptors where the product is applied. In this way, the product can be used to target your area of pain where the hemp is needed the most. With topical hemp products, the cannabinoid compounds do not enter your bloodstream as would be the case with oral hemp products.
This type of product and method of application is frequently used for relieving muscles tensions, pains, and soreness. Typically, topical hemp products can take from 15 minutes to an hour to be absorbed into the application site so that the relief can start being felt.
Now that you’re familiar with topical hemp products, let’s discuss oral hemp products.
Oral Hemp Products
There are a few different types of oral hemp products:
1.) Edible products (ingested)
2.) Oromucosal products (mouth/throat spray)
3.) Sublingual (absorbed from under the tongue)
Oral hemp products are ingested orally and work from inside of the body to create a soothing effect. When using oral hemp products, the cannabinoid compounds enter the bloodstream. This means that the effects are not as concentrated as they are with topical products because it is spread thinner throughout the entire body.
What Product is Right for Me?
Well, if your pain is area specific, it may be best to target it directly with a topical application of hemp. On the other hand, if you are experiencing a general, more full-body pain, you might choose to opt for an oral hemp product that can soothe your body as a whole.
