How CBD Can Help With Chronic Pain During Cold Weather?
As winter is approaching means people with chronic pain may be suffering from pain more than other times of the year. Seasons change so does the severity of pain. But we want to help people that are suffering from chronic pain to be more at ease during winter. Here are some suggestions on what you can do and how CBD can help you go through the long cold winter.
Why are you at a higher risk of pain during cold weather?
Blood flow lessens during cold weather. During the cold the blood vessels become constricted and reduce blood flow to the joints and muscle causing pain, stiffness and immobility.
People tend to be less physically active during winter interrupting daily routines. Inactivity leads to pain.
Changes in barometric pressure can trigger pain sensation. In the winter the barometric pressure often drops and it could put pressure on the joints and muscles. Barometric pressure is the weight of the air in the atmosphere.
People with chronic pain tend to be more sensitive to cold weather as the cold activates pain receptors.
Here's how CBD can help people with chronic pain during cold weather:
Anti-inflammation Inflammation is the leading cause of pain and CBD has anti-inflammatory properties which will reduce pain and inflammation in your body.
CBD has muscle relaxant properties to help ease muscle tension. Muscle tension is also a leading cause of pain.
Lack of sleep can worsen chronic pain. CBD does have sedative properties to allow you to sleep and recharge.
Reduce stress and anxiety
CBD has anxiolytic and antidepressant properties which can improve mood and reduce stress and anxiety. Once your brain can manage both stress and anxiety levels then you can start to relax. Stress can lead to recurrent pain.
Pain relieving effects
CBD has pain relieving effects to help reduce pain and inflammation for conditions like for arthritis, fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain.
Other tips for people with chronic pain during the cold weather:
Stay active: exercise regularly. Light and low impact physical activities like swimming or yoga are good for chronic pain.
Take your medications: make sure that you take your medicine as prescribed. Skipping on your medication can⁰ be injurious to your health.
Stay warm: wear layered clothes to keep your body warm at all times.
Adopt relaxation techniques: breathing exercise, meditation or stretching can help your body to destress.
When choosing CBD make sure you choose high quality that has been lab tested from a reputable third party lab.
Make sure that it is free from pesticides, harmful chemicals and no microbial.
Be patient! It may take time for CBD to work for you. You should start seeing a difference within 1 to 2 weeks.
Start with a low dosage and increase the amount if needed. Read the instructions and follow the product guidelines on how to use CBD responsibly.
Take CBD regularly. Using CBD daily and making it part of your self-care routine would enhance the effects of CBD.
