Okay, the first thing that I consider in relation to this issue is the place that prescription pain killers have put our nation in over the past twenty years or so. That is the opioid epidemic. With the fact that the pain started out as physical, there was then the addiction that resulted along with the psychological and emotional pain that eventually drew the need for opioids.
So, is it worthwhile to bring more natural pain treatment out into the world? Is that more helpful, even when avoiding ibuprofen, aspirin, Tylenol and other over-the-counter pain medications? It may only be my personal opinion, but I definitely say that it does. There is one natural option, and that is CBD. While there are digestible CBD oil drops that can help with pain treatment and management, there are also topical creams.
There are a few benefits to having a topical CBD cream to help manage pain. With the potential fear on the part of the consumer regarding the connection of CBD to marijuana that is still illegal, they are not ingesting an illegal drug by rubbing on this cream.
Additionally, there is the benefit that a topical cream will enter the spot of pain faster, allowing for a quicker and stronger response to the issue. These are most commonly known for chronic pain of the back and neck, especially considering the fact that those spots do not respond to OTC pain meds that well.
