The benefits of CBD oil for pain
CBD is just one of the hundreds of compounds, also known as cannabinoids, found in cannabis.
Unlike other cannabinoids – such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – CBD doesn’t produce the euphoric high, often associated with marijuana. That means, when taking CBD oil for pain, you needn’t worry about it impairing your function.
CBD can increase the body’s level of anandamide. As a result, it reduces pain perception and improves your mood and anxiety.
CBD oil can be used to alleviate:
- Arthritis pain
- Chronic pain
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Neuropathic pain

CBD Oil for pain - FAQs
Does CBD work for arthritis?
Although the science is still emerging and more human research is needed, animal studies suggest that cannabidiol (CBD) has pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidative properties that help to ease the symptoms of conditions, such as osteoarthritis, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that affects joint cartilage and bones – particularly in the hip, knee, and thumb joints – leading to pain and stiffness. Lupus and rheumatoid arthritis are both autoimmune conditions where the immune system attacks healthy parts of the body, causing them to swell. It typically affects the hands and feet and can result in painful, swollen, and stiff joints.
CBD is thought to target pain in two parts of the body – the site of soreness and the central nervous system which sends pain signals to the brain.
It’s important to note though, whilst you can use CBD oil for pain, it’s not a cure and should not replace your prescribed medication for arthritis. Instead, consider it as a complementary treatment for pain relief, and always consult your doctor before you use CBD products.
How does CBD relieve pain?
CBD-infused products are used by many to alleviate aches, pains, injuries, and various other health conditions – without it causing a “high” or being addictive.
Though CBD is derived from the cannabis plant, it doesn’t contain the psychoactive substance found in marijuana strains (tetrahydrocannabinol or THC).
How quickly the CBD works for pain management can vary depending on the delivery method.
It can take CBD capsules anywhere from 20 minutes up to an hour to kick in, whereas CBD oil can be applied directly under the tongue – boosting the rate of absorption into the bloodstream. As a result, you may notice an effect within just a few minutes. And when you use CBD oil for pain, the effects last approximately 3-5 hours.
How much CBD oil should I take for pain?
Figuring out the right dosage when taking CBD oil for pain is crucial. Too much and you could experience side effects such as fatigue, diarrhoea, loss of appetite, weight changes. Too little and the pain won’t subside.
Some people only need a small 5mg dose of CBD to alleviate their symptoms, whereas others who are in a great deal of pain take 40mg.
As with any type of supplement, before you start taking CBD oil for pain, speak with your doctor to make sure it’s a good choice for you. This is especially important if you take anti-seizure medications, are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Your doctor should provide a recommended dosage. However, if they don’t, it’s best to start with a smaller dose and increase it gradually. And always read the label on the bottle.
It’s also a sensible idea to keep track of how much CBD you’re taking and whether your symptoms improve, stay the same, or get worse.
