The use of natural ingredients, especially Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, is used to help the body reduce soreness, pain and inflammation due to low and high impact activities.
As with most natural remedies, repeated applications might be necessary, especially at the start of treatment. Many Muscle MX users have reported that they are able to use much less often after the initial symptoms they are treating have decreased.
Q What is Cannabidiol (CBD) Oil? CBD is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits but it doesn’t make people feel “stoned” or disoriented. CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis plants. Chemically, CBD is one of 85 chemical substances known as cannabinoids, which are found in the cannabis plant.
Most people associate cannabis with the most famous constituent of cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. THC is responsible for the “high” effect users get when using marijuana. While CBD is completely separate and isolated from THC, you cannot get “high” or stoned from CBD. Still, people confuse CBD and THC. As people and media become more educated on the benefits of CBD, they will realize that it’s an amazing substance that has incredible benefits to the human body. The very nature of the CBD-rich cannabis provides relief from body ailments, including inflammation, pain, anxiety, seizures and numerous other conditions.
Q How does CBD work to reduce pain and inflammation? The reason CBD and other cannabis compounds benefits so many body ailments is due to the fact that active compounds found in cannabis plants mimic an internal harm reduction system in the human body that keeps our health in check called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
ECS is controlled by chemicals that our body produces called endocannabinoids. Our endocannabinoids are responsible for keeping most of our body and biological functions in balance like sleep, pain and appetite. If our body goes out of balance and moves into a state of stress, then the endocannabinoids go into action to fix the problem. Essentially, active components in cannabis or CBD mimics the endocannabinoids to help the body manage the stress or trauma our body experiences. CBD oil helps maintain chemical balance in our body. The best part is that CBD provides a natural method of keeping that balance.
