Physician’s Choice CBD is an innovative business that treats medical conditions with cannabidiol, also known as CBD, a compound from the hemp plant, often extracted as an oil. The compound is then infused in products or used on its own to relieve stress and pain. CBD has been proven to address a variety of health issues, particularly sleep issues, muscle and joint pain, and inflammation.
It is important to note that, while hemp is a cannabis plant, it differs from its sibling, marijuana. What separates the two is the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in each plant. THC is the compound that generates the feeling of being “high.” With less than 0.3 per cent of THC, the hemp plant does not offer the same effect.
Nonetheless, CBD has great benefits for your health and can be harnessed by medical practitioners to meet your needs. Founded by doctors and pain management specialists J. Julian Grove and Peter Kubitz in 2017, Arizona-based Physician’s Choice CBD offers a product line of 18 all-natural remedies that ships to the USA, Canada, and worldwide for a flat rate.
Three of the company’s bestsellers cover sleep support, muscle and joint support, and pain and inflammation support.
Sleep Support Capsules
In addition to CBD, these pills also contain melatonin and vitamin D. CBD helps regulate sleep by reducing cortisol levels and symptoms that can negatively impact the sleep cycle. In individuals who suffer from insomnia, high levels of cortisol – the stress hormone — are what keep them up at night. Research has shown that with short-term usage CBD can lower the cortisol levels. Anxiety also can impact sleep quality. By reducing anxiety, CBD can indirectly lower the frequency of disrupted sleep.
Muscle & Joint Support Cream
This effective cream comes in two sizes: 100 and 500 grams. Topical applications of CBD are very helpful as a muscle relaxant. Generally, many arthritis sufferers find that CBD helps relieve them of their symptoms. However, more studies are needed to confirm the direct health benefits it offers.
Pain & Inflammation Support Capsules
These capsules are very effective in tackling inflammatory reactions from medical conditions. Understanding how CBD works as a pain and inflammation reliever includes knowing how the endocannabinoid system (ECS) works. When the body’s cannabinoid receptors bind with CBD, they generate a response that reduces pain, inflammation, and other related symptoms. The CB1 receptor influences pain whereas the CB2 receptor influences inflammation. In conjunction with CBD, they prompt a response in the body to provide relief from pain and inflammation.
All in all, these CBD products offer individuals suffering from painful medical conditions a natural source of relief. As cannabis becomes less stigmatized and restricted, more research results will be released. Hopefully then, we will see more potential health benefits and solutions that do not involve prescription drugs that cost an arm and a leg. In the meantime, consider speaking with your physician before completely ridding yourself of your medications in favour of CBD products.
