The stratospheric rise in the popularity of CBD speaks to more than people’s belief that it works for them. It also shows that people around the world are looking for all-natural, non-addictive treatments for their problems more than ever before. While cannabidiol might seem trendy right now, civilizations around the world have used hemp and cannabis medicinally for millennia. These are just two of many ancient botanical treatments for issues like pain and inflammation.
If you’re looking for a natural treatment for pain, you might consider CBD. Many new studies have come out supporting hemp oil and cannabidiol topicals as powerful choices for resolving hard-to-treat pain, for instance. You might also look into a variety of pain-relieving botanicals, such as comfrey root, lobelia, and willow bark. Betoken CBD combines these three ingredients, broad-spectrum hemp, and arnica to produce a potent pain-relieving effect in our Pain Pain, Go Away cream.
Comfrey has a storied history of medicinal use. In particular, people around the world have used the root to treat various types of pain with success. There’s strong clinical evidence supporting the idea that comfrey root can treat joint and muscle pain via topical application.
Even in cases of serious, hard-to-treat chronic pain such as degenerative arthritis, comfrey root is a potent treatment without the addictive potential of opioid painkillers. The extract of the root is effective in treating many other types of pain, such as blunt injuries and osteoarthritis.
Lobelia has a storied, contemporary application in medicine. It’s possible to use it both topically and orally, although the effects are very different. Oral ingestion is also somewhere you should take caution, because high doses can become toxic. When you apply lobelia topically, it can help treat various types of pain in a novel way. Instead of reducing inflammation and pain directly, it reduces effects such as bruising.
Willow bark has a rich history of medicinal use dating back to ancient times, in both Greece and China. It possesses a powerful analgesic compound, salicin, which is effective both in natural botanical form or as an extract. Contemporary studies have produced interesting results with regard to the ability of willow bark to treat back pain, joint pain, and muscle pain.
Studies indicate that modest doses are able to treat lower back pain with great success. However, it appears that low doses of willow bark and salicin are ineffective at treating osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis on their own.
