Hemp Oil Q & A

What is Hemp Oil?

Hemp oil is a product made from specific varieties of the cannabis plant. Cannabis includes different chemicals, including tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol. Tetrahydrocannabinol is the psychoactive compound that causes the “high” sensation, while cannabidiol reduces inflammation and provides pain relief.

Hemp oil is made from parts of the plant that don’t include significant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol and won’t make you high. However, it does include some cannabinol.

What Conditions Benefit from Hemp Oil?

Your physician could recommend that you try hemp oil to treat osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. You might also find that hemp oil alleviates other chronic pain conditions, including pain from multiple sclerosis and chemotherapy.

How Does Hemp Oil Relieve Pain?

Your brain and immune system have receptors that connect with cannabinol in your system, which reduces inflammation and stimulates other pain-reducing effects throughout your body. However, medical researchers are still studying hemp oil and its medicinal uses.

What are the Benefits of Hemp Oil?

Hemp oil can provide effective pain relief. It’s all natural and is legal throughout the United States. You can use hemp oil topically or take a few drops orally for pain relief.

Hemp oil doesn’t have any psychoactive properties so it won’t get you high or cause a positive drug test, although you could find that your sleep improves.

It’s not addictive and can reduce your need for other pain-relieving medications. In fact, many patients find that they’re able to stop using pain medication when they start using hemp oil.

The physicians at Commonwealth Pain & Spine recommend hemp oil for a wide range of pain conditions.
