What Are The Benefits Of CBD Hemp Oil For Pain?

For thousands of people across the United States, pain is a daily reality. For some, it’s a short-lived discomfort. For others, it’s a symptom of a chronic condition. Whatever the case, it can turn even the simplest of everyday activities into a challenge.

First-line options like prescription medications can be powerful pain management tools. However, many find them insufficient or have concerns about long-term use. For these individuals, CBD hemp extract products are an ideal alternative.

What Is CBD Hemp Oil?

A hemp leaf and seeds, which can be used to extract cannabidiol or CBD.

CBD oil is a naturally derived extract of hemp, a versatile variety of the Cannabis sativa plant. This plant is commonly grown as an industrial crop for its fiber, but it also holds potentially beneficial compounds in its resin glands. In addition to cannabidiol (CBD), the hemp plant naturally contains a variety of other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.

Dried leaves and flowers are first processed to physically free the compounds from the plant matter. Processing methods vary, but the product is roughly the same: a pure plant extract with potent active ingredients. Once this extract is collected, it can be carefully filtered, adjusted and purified to remove contaminants and achieve the desired concentration. It’s then ready to be combined with a carrier oil and given any desired flavorings or fragrances.

CBD hemp oil may contain the full spectrum of plant compounds, a broad range of compounds, or a single CBD isolate. Multiple compounds are thought to create an “entourage effect,” working together with the body’s endocannabinoid system to create a range of positive effects.

Does Hemp Oil Make You High?

By definition, any hemp product must contain no more than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). At such a negligible amount, THC and any other potentially psychoactive ingredients are insufficient to create a cannabis high. CBD hemp oil can produce a psychologically calming effect and create a physical sensation of relaxation. However, these are distinctly different from the psychoactive side effects of recreational or medical marijuana.

All Reclaim Labs hemp seed oil,or, rather, hemp extract products, are carefully formulated and third-party tested to ensure that they are safe, legal, and effective. Our CBD oil will not make you high regardless of how it’s used. If you’d like to learn more about what’s in our products, we can provide you with a certificate of analysis (COA) from our partner lab.

Is CBD Hemp Extract Legal?

The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 made hemp products legal for production and sale in the United States. In order to qualify as a legal hemp product, however, the law states that the product must contain no more than 0.3% THC. So long as a CBD extract does not contain more than this amount of THC, it is considered a legal product. Our products always meet this standard.

Different states and localities have their own laws about the use of products like CBD oil. Make sure you are aware of any relevant laws in your area regarding personal use.

CBD Oil Benefits for Pain

For many people living with pain, their symptoms aren’t well managed with typical pain relief medications. Even when they do work well, long-term use of painkillers or steroids can pose their own risks of addiction and damage. For individuals seeking a natural, plant-based alternative, the various hemp oil benefits for pain can be life changing.

Thanks to its apparent anti-inflammatory and relaxing effects, CBD oil may help ease various types of pain. Possible hemp oil uses for pain include:

  • Arthritis joint pain¹
  • Gastrointestinal pain²
  • Pain on the skin surface (burns, cuts, insect bites)
  • Headaches
  • Neuropathic pain (such as from diabetes or multiple sclerosis)
  • Post-surgical pain

Statements about the medical benefits of hemp oil for pain relief have not been evaluated by the FDA, and we cannot offer medical advice. The possible benefits presented here are based on customer testimonials, ongoing research, and the personal experience of our company’s founder.

Our Founder’s Story of Beating Arthritis Pain

Reclaim Labs founder Ron Lev, living with rheumatoid arthritis for almost 30 years, switched to CBD hemp oil and found it to be helpful for his chronic pain condition.

Reclaim Labs founder Ron Lev first developed our flagship formula as a natural alternative to harsh steroids for arthritis. After years of standard treatment began to take a toll on his health, Ron began investigating the potential of hemp oil for chronic pain. When he finally developed Reclaim Labs’ proprietary formulation, Ron was able to completely replace his old medications with a natural, plant-based alternative. Read Ron’s entire story here.

Other Uses of Hemp CBD Oil

Thanks to the broad effects of the compounds on the endocannabinoid system, hemp extract products may be helpful for more than just pain management.

Other potential benefits of CBD hemp oil include (but are not limited to):

  • Anxiety relief: CBD hemp oil is known for producing an overall calming effect, which could help soothe the mental and physical symptoms of anxiety
  • Seizure prevention: Studies suggest that CBD may be beneficial in reducing the frequency of epileptic seizures, particularly in treatment-resistant cases³
  • Drug withdrawal management: Anxiety- and pain-relieving effects may help reduce the discomfort and agitation of withdrawal
  • Reducing inflammation in skin conditions: Anti-inflammatory properties may help ease the appearance and symptoms of conditions like acne or eczema⁴

Research continues to explore new possible benefits of hemp extract. Each individual’s response to CBD is unique, and your own experience with it may vary from that of others.

How Can CBD Hemp Oil Be Taken?

Hemp extract is a versatile product that can be used in several ways. At Reclaim Labs, we offer products with two different methods of delivery.

Topical Application

One common way to use hemp oil is to apply it topically to the skin. It can be applied anywhere on the skin, but it’s usually used directly on the area(s) where the pain occurs. As it absorbs into the body, it helps to ease pain locally and provide a general sense of calm. Topical CBD products can also be applied for other purposes; some use it as part of their daily skin care routine.

Reclaim Labs’ CBD-infused pain freeze gel is available in a convenient roll-on stick for easy, mess-free application. Our topical gel has been carefully formulated with our unique nano-CBD technology, which makes the molecules easier to absorb and more available (bioavailable) to the body. We’ve also combined it with natural ingredients like aloe vera, tea tree oil, and menthol for cooling, skin-soothing relief.

Dietary Supplement

A bottle of THC Free CBD Hemp Oil, a dietary supplement option that may be helpful for many people with chronic pain.

Another popular way to use CBD hemp seed oil, or rather hemp extract, is to take it orally as a dietary supplement.

Our broad spectrum hemp extract oil supplement is formulated using highly bioavailable coconut MCT oil for efficient absorption. It contains a variety of naturally occurring cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes for the most helpful combined effects.

None of our products contain more than the legally allowable amount of THC. However, for those who would prefer to avoid even trace amounts, we also offer a completely THC-free hemp oil version of our dietary CBD supplement.
