Pain is one of the most common reasons that adults seek medical care in the United States. It can lead to restrictions in mobility and daily activities, as well other medical conditions, like anxiety, depression and sleep disorders. Currently available analgesic medications are limited by low efficacy, high adverse effect rates, cost, and other factors.
Clearly, we need new approaches.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is intricately involved in the processing and modulation of pain signals, both in the peripheral and central nervous systems. CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids show promise as analgesic and anti-inflammatory agents in both animal and human studies.
In this webinar, Jamie Corroon, ND, will describe the role of the ECS in pain signal processing, and review the research on CBD in the context of analgesia and pain management.
