You have probably heard a lot about CBD, or cannabidiol. In fact, there is a good chance that you already have a positive or negative opinion about it. While there is much debate over cannabis products, much of the controversy results from a lack of education. The truth is that CBD has many medicinal properties that can help you get more out of your chiropractic treatments.
Make You More Relaxed
One of a chiropractor’s jobs is to loosen tension and restore natural balance to your body. However, if you have predisposed anxiety about chiropractic remedies, or bring a host of stresses with you to your chiropractic session, your chiropractic treatment won’t be as effective as it could be. If this is the case, you may want to use CBD.
CBD chemically exudes natural characteristics of a relaxant. There are chemical receptors within CBD that interact with your body and help it control serotonin levels. A nickname for serotonin is the ‘happy hormone’. It helps regulate arousal and mitigates depressants which, in turn, boosts your mood and helps you relax. Consider using CBD to help you relax and get more out of your chiropractic sessions.
Marijuana has been used for thousands of years to help with pain management, and recent research into CBD has shown very promising results for helping with pain. Since life definitely comes with its fair (or unfair) share of aches and pains, CBD may be a great supplementary option while also getting chiropractic treatments.
CBD can be especially effective if you have chronic pains or general inflammation of the joints or other parts of the body. They are much safer than any opioid-based pain medications. However, do your research before ingesting CBD. Consult with a doctor or specialist and make sure to start with a low dosage.
Improve Overall Wellness
There must be a good reason that you are seeking chiropractic treatment—when something hurts or feels out of line, the rest of your day-to-day life is negatively affected. In fact, there is a good chance that your body’s misalignment and pain is not only affecting your mental wellness, but your mental wellness is affecting your body’s misalignment and augmenting the pain.
There is a lot of evidence that CBD can not only foster relaxation, but even decrease depression and anxiety. While chiropractic treatment can ease much of the discomfort and alleviate a lot of the pain, it cannot fix your mental state. Consider using CBD to further improve your overall wellness. Your improved mental state will positively affect your experiences in your chiropractic sessions, as well as benefit your general health.
Your pain is real. You need relief. And that is why chiropractors exist today. But why not look for more ways to improve your chiropractic experience? That is why it is worth trying CBD—be ready to be amazed by all the healing it can really do.
