How Hemp Oil is changing the Chronic Pain Management

  • Pin It

Recent statements by Dr. Sanjay Gupta have been quoted and requoted all over the media, and for a good reason. It is an important issue, and his is an important voice. Here is a quote from a blog on MSN:

Those who doubt medical marijuana’s usefulness, put this in your pipe and smoke it: Dr. Sanjay Gupta, neurosurgeon and CNN’s chief medical correspondent, formerly on your side, has reversed his position and come out strongly in favor of the use of cannabis to treat various medical conditions.

“I think we have been terribly and systematically misled in this country, and I did part of that misleading,” he said, apologizing for not supporting medical marijuana sooner.

He said there was “no scientific basis” for claims that marijuana was not beneficial, while a host of studies conducted outside the U.S. and patient experience proved it could alleviate symptoms that even stronger, more addictive and dangerous drugs could not. Refusing to offer marijuana as a medical treatment, he said, was “irresponsible.”

Sometimes when you think that there must be a conspiracy between some parties controlling an aspect of your life, it may turn out that you were right! You can watch a webinar about the history of Hemp Oil and how it helps heal cancer and inflammation.

One excellent example of the conspiracies is the story of hemp. But before I get into that, let me tell you about coconut oil.

In the 90’s, coconut oil was used to top that yummy popcorn we all ate as we watched our movies. Then someone decided that it caused health problems and theaters were banned from using it. Coconut oil became taboo.

True enough, not all coconut oil is cold pressed and trouble-free, but coconut oil’s benefits are now shouted from the rooftops, or at least in many health food store aisles.

So what really happened in the 90s?

The people who make vegetable oils won the public relations battle. Coconut oil disappeared from the movie theaters and from grocery store shelves for a decade, replaced by Canola, Corn and Safflower Oil to name a few.

Hemp suffered a similar fate back in the 1940s.

Why should you care about it? Because hemp extract, and especially one of its components, cannabidiol, are excellent anti-inflammatory agents. Most everything that causes aches or chronic pain your body can greatly benefit from adding cannabidiol (CBD) to your menu.

Let me quote some government research:

Besides dealing with many types of cancer, CBD is very good at calming over-excited nerves and “study demonstrated that endogenous cannabinoid system signaling is likely to provide intrinsic protection against colonic inflammation and cannabinoids may also contribute to pain modulation through an anti-inflammatory mechanism.”

In 1937 the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration crafted the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937, the first US national law making cannabis possession illegal except for industrial or medical purposes.

It was brought forward in the interest of the Hearst family – they wanted to make paper from trees, not hemp – and of the Dupont family – they wanted to use nylon, not hemp for rope and cordage.

Fast forward 60 years, and we have the near perfect replica of the Prohibition years, except we call it the War on Drugs. We are jailing millions of people, killing thousands of them in turf wars, and wasting billions of dollars investigating, suppressing, incarcerating and eradicating. How can the final outcome be anything different than what happened with the Prohibition?

But I digress. This post is about health, inflammation, and cancer.

Raw Hemp has fantastic healing properties. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the compounds, and it is responsible for much of the healing effects.

The good thing about it is this: it is legal. THC, the other major ingredient in the varieties of hemp that would get you high, is not, at least not in every state.

I found a video that explains rather well how juiced hemp deals with inflammation, chronic pain, and other illness. Note one major point they make: even the type of hemp that would get you high when heated (smoked or baked) does not have the mind altering effect when ingested as cold-pressed or juiced.

Let me address the most frequently asked questions about Hemp Oil:

1. Will I get high?

Sorry! Not with the CBD hemp oil. And not even with home made fresh hemp juice.

2. Will I become addicted?

Hemp oil does not cause your body to crave more. It is non-addictive, harmless, and effective for practically any medical condition.

3. Is this the same as hemp seed oil?

No! This oil is made from the hemp stem and stalk extract. It is the essential oil of the hemp plant. Health food stores sell oil made from hemp seed that is often mislabeled as hemp oil – it should be called hemp seed oil. Although the seed oil is very beneficial, it does not contain enough CBD to have any effect on cancer and other serious illnesses.

I want to mention to you a movement that has been unfolding for several years in the background or underground, started by a very brave man, Rick Simpson. He has been using the name Hemp Oil for a product that is the extract of the marijuana bud, rich in both CBD and THC. It would be better if it were called “marijuana oil” to distinguish it from the “hemp oil” that is rich in CBD only.

Rick’s story is compelling, and well worth your time:

    I don't mean to be ignorant, but you should call your product "hemp seed oil". Hemp is just another name for marijuana or cannabis.

    Please cancel my comment I didn't read the article fully.

      I tried organic hemp seed oil on my skin, and it is amazing. Hemp seed oil does not get you high, it contains no THC. It is one of the most resourceful plant in our planet! 30% stronger than cotton, biodegradable, used as a food supplement in cornflakes, for sell in health food stores. Wait and see how the hemp industry will boost our economy!

    Great article. I think we have a lot of work to do so the public is correctly informed on the difference between CBD and THC. Cheers!

    Are there clinical trails to prove that it provides pain relief for chronic migraine?

  • Frederick Sennello

    My wife suffers from both petite and grandma seizers. She also suffers from a great deal of other nerve pain disorders and bipolar disease. I suffer from chronic back, leg, knee, neck, shoulder and elbow pain. I think that cbd would be a great medical treatment for our medical problems. I just want it at an affordable cost.

    My husband suffers from severe pain due to mesh implanted in him 7 years ago for hernia repair. The mesh was removed almost 2 years ago and he has had some pain relief for periods of time but it is getting unbearable again. There is now a study that has named this consition as "Surrepticious Irreversable Neuralgia" Has anyone used hemp oil to treat this kind of nerve damage?

    Hi. Been using hemp oil for over a year on my skin and find it amazing, especially when I found out it is a natural. Been out on the beach a lot lately and I apply all over my body and get a lovely tan!!! No sunburn! Skin is soft. Only problem is the hemp oil stains clothing.

    Friend has just started taking it internally (organic hemp oil) recently and found it got rid of his flu pretty quick smart. I will try it too – as I presume it will work faster inside than out. Like collagen – found it more beneficial taken internally than using it externally in creams etc.

    I have recently heard that hemp oil is very good for pain relief. Where would we be able to purchase this. My husband has been in severe back pain for over twenty years, he has had surgery which helped to reduce the pain for an number of years, but with every year it gets unbearably worse. Doctors can't help other than stronger pills. Can someone help us.
