    Gummy Bear CBD Edibles for Pain

    Pain is a common symptom associated with many conditions. CBD gummy bears treat discomfort resulting from pain. This blog explains the type of CBD gummy bears for pain, how they relieve pain, and other benefits.

    Pain comes alongside many health complications like injuries, fibromyalgia, cancer, and inflammatory diseases. Dealing with pain is not easy, as most drugs have a high dependency. Therefore, people shift to herbal remedies like CBD edibles to relieve discomfort. Edibles allow the user to relieve pain without the earthy bitter taste associated with Cannabidiol oil. The commonly consumed CBD edibles are gummy bears. They are readily available and easily digested to release the soothing compound. Pain is highly related to excessive body inflammations, and CBD products have anti-inflammatory properties.

    What  Is CBD?

    Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound existing naturally in the Cannabis Sativa plant with over 100 other cannabinoids. It is primarily extracted from the flowers and leaves of industrial hemp, which is one of the cannabis strains. The plant contains a high concentration of CBD compounds and minimal THC content. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another popular cannabinoid associated with highness and confusion among marijuana smokers. Unlike THC, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound exhibiting no mind-altering effects. Instead, it is popular in inducing therapeutic benefits like relieving anxiety, stress, and chronic pain. Upon extraction, the cannabinoid is highly diluted with organic carrier oils like hemp oil to create highly concentrated oil. Manufacturers of various products like edibles, topicals, tablets/capsules, tinctures, and Vape devices use CBD oil.

    Understanding CBD Gummy Bear

    CBD gummy bears are bear-shaped sweet candies in variousflavors and contain CBD as the main active ingredient. They are made by adding a predetermined amount of CBD in the hardening stage of making regular gummies. Other ingredients include gelatin for thickening the product, sugar, and flavorings to provide different aromas for customers' preferences. CBD gummy bears are a popular way to harness the therapeutic effects of CBD since they mask the oily bitter taste associated with cannabis with a delicious flavor.

    Types of CBD Gummy Bears for Pain

    CO2 extraction and cold pressing are the most popular way to extract CBD oil for gummy production. However, Cannabis companies can use other different extraction methods in delivering the cannabinoid resulting in three different types of CBD for relieving body pains:

    CBD Isolate

    It creates gummy bears with CBD potency,which is essential in treating body pains. Isolate CBD is the purest form, with no traces of other cannabinoids in the hemp plant.

    Full Spectrum CBD Gummies

    It consists of all plant phytochemicals, including small traces of THC. Due to the 2018 parliamentary meeting that legalized CBD products, this type should only contain THC, not more than 0.2% of the total weight. In relieving pain, full-spectrum CBD provides the body with additional benefits of other cannabinoids heightening the analgesic effects of CBD.

    Broad-Spectrum CBD Gummy Bears

    The broad spectrum lies between the full spectrum and isolates because it consists of all cannabinoids and terpenes in the hemp plant except THC. Apart from alleviating body pains, this type provides aromatherapy effects associated with terpenes' presence. Additionally, it provides entourage effects associated with additional cannabinoids without the risk of getting high.

    How CBD Gummy Bear Work in Treating Pain

    After consuming CBD gummy bears, the cannabinoid is subjected to a breakdown of digestion and liver metabolic enzymes before being absorbed into the bloodstream. It interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and brain neurons to relieve body discomforts like pain. ECS is designed to control and regulate body homeostasis by eradicating body imbalances. It consists of body endocannabinoids like anandamide, enzymes, and cannabinoid receptors. Eskander et al. (2020) explained that CBD increases the release of endocannabinoids, which binds with ECS receptors to block the signaling of pain electrical nerve impulses into the brain neurons. Therefore altering how brain pain sensors perceive body discomfort.  CBD prevents dissolving the induced body cannabinoids by the ECS enzymes to prolong the calming effects.

    Ways CBD Gummy Bears Help in Pain Management

    A variety of body dysfunctions causes body pains. Pain causes negative reactions in patients. Therefore, the following are three ways CBD can help in pain management:

    Reduce Body Inflammation

    Most body pains are caused by accumulated dead cells and intra-cellar oxidative activities induced by excessive inflammatory responses. Inflammation is a normal process induced by the immune system in case of internal threats. However,  the system may trigger inflammatory responses when there is no danger, damaging body tissues, and cells. According to Atalay et al. (2019), CBD has anti-inflammatory properties. It supports healthy inflammatory responses by the immune organs and reduces oxidative cell activities by inhibiting the release of cortisol.

    Managing Anxiety Associated with Chronic Pains

    Patients suffering from chronic pains get anxious about situations, worsening pain. Anxiety increases the oxidative activities in cells that damage body tissues and trigger body irritations. Sales et al. (2018) suggested that taking CBD gummy bears can help manage anxiety and stress by increasing the production of serotonin. The hormone activates the health release of happy compounds like dopamine, altering how patients perceive negative emotions.

    Boost Sleep Quality

    Doctors advise people to have a good sleep in treating body pains. When sleeping, preserved body energy promotes cell and tissue reproduction, reducing discomfort. However, most patients can't sleep while experiencing chronic body pains like sciatica. According to Kuhathasan et al. (2019), CBD provides patients with calming effects essential to boosting good sleep by relaxing both the mind and tired muscles.

    Other Benefits of CBD Gummy Bears

    Apart from alleviating pain, anxiety, and sleeplessness, CBD gummy bears can be used for the following:

    • Boosting mental clarity, focus, and concentration, especially for patients who have ADHD, Parkinson's, and PSTD
    • Boosting body energy levels by promoting the conversion of stored fat into glucose
    • Help to lower blood pressure in patients suffering from hypertension
    • Acts as a muscle relaxant after a tiresome day
    • It can help manage depression and other mental disorders
    • Boost the body's immune system

    Conclusion

    CBD products like CBD gummy bears have gained massive popularity in treating body pains. They are readily available in almost hemp shops in three formats: CBD isolate, full-spectrum, and broad-spectrum. Nonetheless, CBD in gummies reacts with ECS to produce endocannabinoids binding with cannabinoid receptors in relieving body pains. It also helps reduce oxidative cell activities that trigger body pains and discomforts. It is important to consult your medical practitioner about dosage clarification and health records to avoid overdosing or having a cannabis allergic reaction.
