Does CBD work for Pain

DOES cbd work for Pain relief

Cannabidiol is a popular alternative compared to prescription pain relief (such as opioids). Especially, for people who have chronic pain and have become reliant upon those habit-forming medications.  Even though more research is required to verify the pain-relieving properties of CBD, it’s clear patients are benefiting from trying these CBD products.

why is cbd being chosen over pain meds

CBD is becoming a ‘quick-fix’ for many medical conditions and symptoms for anything from psoriasis to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Shinning Star

It seems to be becoming the medical industry’s shining star’.  Which has seen researchers jump at the opportunity to gain a better understanding of how this product is helping people.

There currently aren’t a lot of clinical trials about CBD for pain relief in humans. But preclinical tests are being carried out on animals, for example, animals with painful arthritis.   These studies have shown that CBD reduces pain and inflammation and has very few side effects.  

how does it work

For thousands of years, people have been using CBD as a natural remedy for pain relief.  Still, the medical community have only recently begun studying its benefits and how it works in-depth.  CBD reacts with the endocannabinoid receptors in our brain and immune system (the tiny proteins attached to our cells).

These receptors receive chemical signals and respond by creating anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects that aid with the management of pain.  The current theory is that the endocannabinoid system has two cannabinoid receptors: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are in the brain.  They are believed to be associated with cognitive actions including mood, memory, thinking and appetite.

CB1 and CB2 receptors

The CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and are responsible for how the body reacts to pain and inflammation.   THC attaches to the CB1 receptors (which explains why using THC rich Cannabis can affect behaviour and appetite).

In contrast, CBD creates a positive effect on the CB2 receptors whereby the body is enticed to generate more of its cannabinoids.  This is how CBD is believed to work, but more research is being carried out to ensure that this is entirely accurate.

what kind of pain can it help

It is said that CBD Oils and CBD-infused products can help with arthritis pain relief, symptoms surrounding cancer treatment and migraine pain relief.

For arthritis pain, it’s advised that a topical CBD-infused product is used and applied directly to the skin where the arthritis is causing pain.   So researchers have tried this method of treatment on rats with arthritis for four days and noticed a significant decrease in inflammation without any side effects. It does not take long to begin to work.

This test, so far, has only been carried out on animals, so more research needs to take place to see if it is as effective on humans.   However, with most topicals designed to help with arthritis pain, it’s a case of trying products to see if they work for you and whether you like the product. A guide to CBD topicals, balms and lotions coming soon.

The Research

There have been case studies that have shown people with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) trying CBD oil to help reduce the pain felt during muscle spasms.  Muscle spasms are one of the most common symptoms of MS and can cause extreme pain.   MS patients that have tried CBD oil have sometimes reported a reduction in the frequency of their spasms as well as pain relief.   But these results are modest and haven’t got scientific verification yet, we are mid-trials.

There have been reports that CBD has been helping cancer patients reduce the pain from their cancer treatments.  Research has also been carried out on animals to see whether CBD can shrink cancerous tumours, which was successful in some of these animals.   Still, there currently isn’t enough research to see this success with tumours in humans.

However, many researchers have begun to test how CBD can help ease the pain related to cancer treatment.

are there any side effects

As with most medications, there are a few side effects that can occur in some people, but usually, most people tolerate CBD oil well.  The most popular side effects are believed to be tiredness, diarrhoea, lack of appetite and weight gain or weight loss.

Although there currently isn’t a lot of research and conclusive data to support CBD oil and CBD-infused products for pain relief.   It’s agreed that these products have a lot of potential.

There are several CBD products to try when it comes to managing pain, and it all depends on where the pain is.  For arthritis, we would recommend trying a minimum of 1000mg CBD Oil Oral Drops.  CBD works best as an anti-inflammatory, for pain relief, it is best combined with THC.

In contrast, CBD capsules and oils may be better for pain management related to cancer treatments.

My Storey

My journey to CBD oil and Big Chief Hemp

I’m Mandy, the founder of Big Chief Hemp and would like to share my storey with you.

I’m often asked why we started Big Chief Hemp and what got me into Hemp and CBD products.

CBD has been a gift to me and my family, Mother Natures Gift.

Full CBD range wooden heart

Growing up in the army

I was born in the early 1970s, in the legendary Pied Piper town of Hamelin in Germany, the year after my father joined the army.

Throughout my childhood, my family moved back and forth between England and Germany.

When I was 11 or 12 years old, I learnt Judo at the army barracks close to where we were living, at that time, in Germany. This was an incredible experience. We entered many competitions and trained hard.

The Dandelion is the official flower of the military child

And so it begins

Fast forward a few years, I’m now in my early 20’s, living in England and my dad has left the army. I am working as a credit controller and raising a beautiful daughter.

One morning, I woke up and everything changed. This morning would be the day that my life was turned on its end. I woke up with my neck and back in agony, which made me think that perhaps I slept at an odd angle and strained a few muscles while sleeping – so I gave it a few days.

The pain wasn’t getting any better; it was getting worse. I couldn’t open doors, I couldn’t stand up straight, and I couldn’t sit down without being in pain. So, I made an appointment with my GP.

The long and short of it; Diagnosis: Facet Joint Degeneration & Degenerative Disc disease.  Most of us get this in old age, I just came early.

Arthritis at 28?!

To improve my core strength and to try and create more support for my spine, physiotherapy is recommended.

But as the months went by, the pain was getting worse and worse – there was no way I could continue physiotherapy; it was too painful.

It was back to the drawing board, and this time my first pain specialist, suggested that we tried steroid injections.

A few weeks after the injections, the pain in my back was even worse than before the injections.

keep taking the tablets

It was beginning to feel like everything I tried was just making me feel worse, and in even more pain, but didn’t want to give up. Called my GP again to see if there was something else we can try to relieve some of the pain, so I was then referred for an MRI scan.

When the results of the MRI came back, I was given the same diagnosis. The Pain Clinician “It’s not that we don’t believe you, but we can’t find anything else other than your original diagnosis”.

So, I was told to keep taking the pain medication that I was prescribed and hope that one day the pain eases.

Is it all in my mind

I didn’t go back to any specialists for two years after this, purely out of embarrassment. Was it all in my head? My pain levels were much higher than they should be. Was I just weak?

My life had changed so much in just a few years, and the doctors couldn’t help me.

I had gone from an active independent woman to struggling to get out of bed or lift a pan without being in extreme pain

IS judo responsible

During this time, still working full time, and after two more years of pain, I decided to contact my GP again to see if my spine could be re-examined.

I was referred for a CT scan (computed tomography), so the doctors could have a different look at my spine.

After just a few days, I received a call from the surgeon’s secretary asking me to go to the hospital as soon as I could because the surgeon was staying in his office after work waiting to talk to me.

I knew this had to be important, so I left the office, grabbed my daughter from the after-school club and rushed over to the hospital.

Arriving at the hospital and sat down in the surgeon’s office. The radiologist had found a fracture in my spine, tucked away.   *This is almost five years since my issues began.

Sounds odd, but I cried with joy, the doctors have found something to treat, and it wasn’t my imagination. 

It transpires that; must have fractured the lower spine in my youth while my body was still developing.

An old injury

An old fracture that will not heal.

Double spinal fusion

The surgeon advised I would need a double spinal fusion to fuse a few vertebrae to try and eliminate painful motion and restore the stability in my spine.

During the surgery, he had to remove a bulging disc altogether and popped in a cage in its place.

myfuture

What did my future hold?

Now moving into my 40s; new kneecaps are required; I’ve had an arthroscopy on both knees and am too young to get the knee replacements.

All in all, my body has aged much quicker than it should have.

My career came to an end; our entire Accounts team faced redundancy.

So that was that. My storey.

Thought, that was my last job as I deemed myself unemployable.

Grieving for myself

Since my first diagnosis, my marriage broke down, made redundantly, and my body was gradually losing mobility.

Grieving for myself I’d gone from a physically independent and financially independent woman to suddenly, not so independent.  A big shift.

Seems daft now, but I resented having to use a wheelchair occasionally.

Until you realise you are still one of the lucky ones.  Cognitive behavioural therapy through the NHS. A fantastic online chatroom service.

The online Therapist taught me mechanisms to realise the positive things about myself and to look at what had been achieved, and still to achieve, in my life.

‘Glorify who you are today, do not condemn who you were yesterday, and dream of who you can be tomorrow’ – Neale Donald Walsch

pain relief

Since the first day, I felt back pain I had been trying various pain relief medications; my GP worked with me to try and find the best combination of medication and dosage that would help me.

We tried so many pain killers and anti-inflammatories, but they either didn’t agree with me, had too many side effects that I didn’t want to risk, or made me feel even worse, I’m opioid-intolerant.

My Pain Management Consultant (Consultant Anaesthetist), works with me so I can have a treatment that keeps me alive/sane; ‘Pulse Denervation’, every four months. I feel blessed;

The fabulous NHS give me the procedures needed, twice per year. I pay for one further treatment a year privately.

Without these injections, I simply cannot function; life is unbearable, utterly impossible.

discovering cbd

One day I decided to start looking for herbal remedies.

We discovered articles about the plant “Hemp” and its potential benefits to the environment and as an alternative to plastics.

After some thorough research about Hemp, I found out that it was the CBD oil (Cannabidiol) and other Cannabinoids in Hemp that was behind potential wellness benefits. I decided to give it a try.

After talking about Hemp and CBD with one of my neighbours, she said that she had also heard about CBD and would bring me some Hemp paste to try.

Big Chief hemp is born

While using CBD oil myself,  found it to be very expensive and couldn’t understand why.

Wanted to bring CBD oil to the market at a reasonable price so more folks could reap the benefits of this natural product – so launched Big Chief Hemp. 

All the while maintaining my independence and creating a new path for myself.

Am passionate about the benefits of Hemp derived products and provide naturally grown broad-spectrum CBD Oils and Hemp products. 

We are pleased to offer a premium product with an improved price tag and work towards being farmers of this incredible plant.

My dream is to have a hemp farm in the UK and begin a CBD charity for those who cannot afford the Oil regularly…One day! watch this space.

Hope

CBD Facts and Info

BCH CBD on a bed on hemp leaves

what is CBD

CBD Facts and Info, let’s look at what CBD is?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring substance from a Hemp plant. Within this fascinating plant, there are just over a hundred compounds, of which CBD is one. CBD is extracted from the plant.

Psychoactive

Psychoactive is a medical term for something that affects your mind/psyche, mind-altering, in this case, ‘Being High’ your mental state is affected with a buzz, a high.

Non-psychoactive is the term for precisely the opposite, not mind-altering – does not get you ‘high.’ affecting your psyche

THC, on the other hand, is Psychoactive, one of the mind-altering Cannabinoids. The psychoactive element of the Cannabis/Marijuana plant.

CBD is the Cannabinoid being non-psychoactive

WHAT are terpenes

ful range cbd in a wooden heart

Terpenes are the little gems that provide the Cannabis smells and tastes; each variety plant has different terpenes, producing distinctive aromas, and fruity or earthy tones.

Just as the aroma in food adds to the taste, Terpenes’ aroma adds to the benefits of taking Cbd.

The gift that keeps on giving. Terpenes enhance the benefits of CBD, with their array of elements, it could transpire these elements carry similar benefits to CBD.

Sadly, some Terpenes are unavoidably lost during the process of extraction. Due to the drying process of the buds for the C02 removal, some of the Terpenes do not survive.

Terpenes are delicate, many of them are removed, before the cleaning process of the CBD extraction and added back to CBD Oils once they have been cleaned and cooled.

Terpene Oil can be purchased, giving you the smell and tastes of the plant without the CBD or THC. To use in cooking or smoking, create your Vape Oils or Vape Juices.

thc vs cbd

The significant elements of the Hemp Plant are named Trichomes; tiny sticky glands; these glands hold all the active medical ingredients called PhytoCannabinoids. Cannabinoids, for short. THC and CBD are Cannabinoids.

CBD is just one of the many magical elements of the Cannabis Plant.

CBD initially won as the front runner as it was believed to contain the most benefits. Below is a shortlist of some of the other Cannabinoids that work their magic alongside CBD & THC:

CBDP – Cannabidiphorol

CBG – Cannabigerol

CBC – Cannabichromenic

CBDA – Cannabidiolic acid

CBDB – Cannabidiphorol

CBD – Cannabidiol

CBN – Cannabinol

CBGA – Cannabigerolic

The plant is currently being researched globally, it’s an exciting time.  This family of Cannabinoids are believed to be beneficial in many ways.

THC using is full name Tetrahydrocannabinol, also has more than one variety just like CBD.  THC is believed to have enormous benefits. In medical-grade Prescription medicines, for instance for Epilepsy treatments, THC is required in addition to the CBD Cannabinoids, to support illnesses long term.

Big Chief Hemp Oils contain less than 0.0005% THC, a value considered untraceable and THC Free.

the cbd clinic

The Medical Cannabis Clinic, in London

Although CBD was legalised in the UK in 2018, we are currently faced with GPs reluctant to prescribe CBD to patients that require assistance where traditional medicines are failing.

For patients that require Medical Grade Cannabis, this process is currently unlicensed, therefore can only be prescribed by a specialist or a GP acting under the instructions of a specialist.

A new Private Clinic has opened to assist with Private Prescriptions for Medical Cannabis.

The Clinical Director is Professor Mike Barnes, who is a consultant neurologist, who assisted in securing the first medicinal cannabis licence for Alfie Dingley.

Professor Barnes said: “This Clinic will represent a lifeline to the thousands of patients who have found other treatments ineffective.

The Clinic is offering “potentially life-changing” treatment for arthritis, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. It may also benefit people with psychiatric conditions

and stroke patients”.

Currently, there are more than 150 people are said to be on the Clinics waiting list.

The Clinic has specialists able to prescribe Cannabinoid treatments privately where the NHS are unsure.

” Professor David Nutt, of Imperial College London, stated that “ignorance” of the value of cannabis medicines among doctors was holding back their use.

Medical Cannabis was legalised in the UK last year but currently, Families say it is almost impossible to access it on the NHS, despite its legalisation.

Cases such as those of Billy Caldwell, 13, and Alfie Dingley, seven, have highlighted the benefits of cannabis oil to children with epilepsy who suffer multiple seizures and have begun to enjoy significant reductions in their symptoms

everything you wanted to know about CBD

is cbd legal in the uk

Thankfully Yes, CBD is legal in the UK and Europe, and CBD is classified as a food supplement.

the ECS system

It was discovered in 1963 that mammals have an Endocannabinoid system (ECS). Throughout our nervous system, We have Cannabinoid receptors. Including our brain, Cannabinoid receptors are the most abundant receptors!

It was discovered by Raphael Mechoulam an Organic Chemist and Professor of Medicinal Chemistry, a professor of the University of Jerusalem. Further Studies by Dr Mechoulam and US researchers have realised an entire ECS system that works in harmony with the Hemp plant, truly a nature’s gift.

Studies are ongoing, and there is still much to learn. The Endocannabinoid system works as the body regulator.

If you are out of sorts,  CBD works with your ECS system.  CBD flicks on the neuro-receptors in your nervous system, including your brain and assists your immune system, like turning on light switches.

The ECS system sends out regulating signals throughout your body, re-balancing your Homeostasis – Illness can thrive if the body fails to produce sufficient endocannabinoids. Taking CBD plant extract can aid your body and mind to stay healthy.

mct carrier

Once you purchase your Oil, how does it arrive, and what is in it?

The CBD is added to an MCT carrier oil. For example, if you have 10% CBD in a 10ml bottle 90% of the remaining liquid is referred to as the Carrier Oil.

MCT means Medium-Chain Triglycerides.

These are edible oils extracted from seeds, such as Coconuts or the controversial Palm oil (deforestation) as a carrier oil in items such as massage oils or essential oils.  Used for a variety of reasons, the fat molecules of these oils are smaller, enabling improved absorption in your body, making it an excellent carrier.

Coconut oil is ideal as it has no strong taste and has a natural anti-fungal property.

the spectrums

Full Spectrum Oil is created from the whole plant has to offer, including flavonoids & terpenes; all the natural smells, colours and tastes of Hemp. Including lipids, giving you the full natural benefits of the Hemp Plant using a Co2 extraction process.

Full-Spectrum will also include trace elements of THC% less than 2%.

Enjoy all the Phytocannabinoids in Full-Spectrum.

Broad-spectrum CBD can be up to 80% pure, also called a THC-free distillate, with no trace elements of THC around 0.0005%.

A more refined version of full-spectrum CBD, Distillation is the extraction process used, whereby cannabinoids and terpenes are refined at a molecular level.

Broad-Spectrum is a better choice for people who want a cleaner CBD experience, with minimal impurities.  According to studies, the broad-spectrum distillate is less potent than its full-spectrum counterpart due to the lack of terpenes, flavonoids and lipid fats.

The distillate can be applied to an MCT Carrier Oil or foods and if so desired can have the terpenes added back to the mix.

The beauty of Broad-Spectrum is to enjoy the benefits of CBD without the flavonoids, removing the strong earthy tastes and smells, and giving your taste buds a more pleasant experience.

It’s easier to create a fabulous tasting CBD oil using distillates.

Crystallised Isolate, a concentrate of CBD, Can be 99% pure and is ground into a powder. Ensuring a zero level of THC.

It’s the purest form of CBD; the extraction process removes all other elements of the bud, removing the other Cannabinoids, Terpenes & Lipids.

Isolate can be applied to an MCT Carrier Oil, added to water or other liquids or foodstuffs (but this is not legal for sale in the UK).

how to take CBD

The key to CBD is consistency. CBD is best taken every day, add it to your daily routine, and maintain your levels.  Depending on your desired product, begin by using a few sprays under the tongue if using the atomiser.

Two or three drops under the tongue two to three times a day if using a tincture.  One capsule two or three times a day and build up until you find your appropriate levels, not exceeding the maximum daily dosage

Do not exceed more than 70mg of CBD in 24 hours, unless otherwise directed by your Medical Professional

how much cbd to take

CBD works much like a vitamin pill, in that, as a food supplement, you are aiding your body to replace lost vitamins and boost your homeostasis. CBD is similar in supporting your Endocannabinoid system and stimulating those receptors to send out positive messages to the rest of your body.

Begin at a very low dosage no more than 10mg a day and increase a few days slowly apart. As there is no head effect, how will you know how much is enough?

People use CBD for a host of reasons, and everyone has different absorption rates. It’s up to you to establish what your levels are. Ask yourself the reason you want to take CBD? For a sense of well-being; it’s recommended to use just 10ml – 20ml a day or you may need a tad more.

We would suggest you begin low with 500mg in a 10ml bottle, twice daily, increasing to three times daily.

If you are recovering from an illness, it’s suggested you use more. Again, always build up your levels at a gentle pace.

There is a point at which you will plateau.

Say the day you increase and don’t feel any more benefit than the previous dosage. You found your level.

Your levels may change over time, depending on how you are feeling. You will get to establish those areas yourself.

To find my levels, I kept a diary and looking back could see the improvements over the weeks, until I arrived at my level.

There are many flavours you can try, mainly fruit flavours, and variations on menthol or chocolate flavours. As the market is growing, so is the choice. These are new and exciting times.

Please consult with your medical professional if you are taking other medications.

Do not exceed more than 70mg of CBD in 24 hours, unless otherwise directed by your Medical Professional.

CBD can inhibit the absorption of some medications. Cancer, liver and anti-seizure treatments

hemp milk

Hemp is one of the most versatile plants on the planet. Not only can we extract CBD from hemp. We can make anything from textiles to bio-diesels.  We can also make hemp milk! It’s rich in amino acids, with a slightly nutty taste. Unlike almond milk, you can add it to your tea and coffee.

We’ve created a two-minute film to show you how easy it is to make hemp milk.

is cbd addictive

In a word – NO!

The element of the Cannabis plant that can get you high is THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and not CBD.

CBD is not psychoactive. UK regulations ensure all CBD products sold contain no more than 0.2% THC, a value that is considered untraceable

can i travel with cbd

Technically yes,

You can travel around Europe with CBD; however, I would NOT recommend travelling with CBD. Border controls are not yet equipped with full knowledge on the subject of CBD. As this product derives from a Cannabis family plant, it is still a grey area within Airports and Border controls.

As such currently it’s not recommended to travel abroad with CBD unless you have written permission from the current government of the country you intend to travel to.  In countries like the US it is legal, but only in individual States and often only with a prescription.

We would not recommend taking your CBD your CBD unless you have a Prescription.

It is early days for this product, and the knowledge has not yet reached everyone

well-being & health

We are not permitted by UK Law to Make any medical claims whatsoever. Due to studies not yet completed in the UK.  There have been many years of research and studies ongoing by Universities and institutions in Spain, Canada, the Netherlands and Israel.  These studies suggest CBD Oil and THC have beneficial uses.

Big Chief Hemp provides a Night-Time and Day range tailored to aid your well-being and a gentle night’s sleep.

the quality of your cbd

How do you know what you are buying and who you are buying from, how do you keep safe purchasing CBD?

There are many brands sold that do not contain the CBD as described or the products include could THC, but this is not on the label, it’s hard to know.  The best way to keep yourself safe is to use a company that is an ethical business, one willing to provide you with Independent laboratory results.  The lab results will confirm how much CBD you have in the bottle.

Some comprehensive reports will also provide further content information for the other Cannabinoids present.

Look carefully at the product labels and ensure they mention CBD content.  It’s good to know which MCT carrier is used, on an environmental, and ethical level, I’d steer clear of products using Palm Oil as the carrier.

Currently, Few regulations for the CBD Oil industry yet exist. We are instructed to ensure the CBD Oil used is THC free adhering to UK standards, and a recommended daily dosage but these are the only stipulations so far.

As a business, I hope we can get some correct categorisation and regulations in place soon to ensure the safety of CBD consumers.

milligrams vs percentages

On the market is a variety of percentages or grams of CBD, in a variety of bottle sizes. It can be a tad confusing initially.

1ml is equal to 1mg

When I was starting, I only purchased 10ml bottles of CBD to keep it simple.  A 10ml percentage and grams equate to the same thing. For example, if you buy 800mg = 8% CBD.

Big Chief has used milligrams to be clear about how much you are buying.

A spaniel Dog laying in the sun

can your pets use cbd

Currently, In the UK, there is no company licenced to sell CBD for pets. If a company did exists only a Vet would be able to sell it to you under prescription.

The only arena in the UK that can refer to CBD as a medicine is the Veterinary world.

But let us look at the facts. CBD is good for your Endocannabinoid system. And anything with a spinal cord has an Endocannabinoid system. So logic dictates, that CBD is good for your pets. Cats, dogs or horses.

cbd & covid

Tests were carried out in a petri dish that returned favourable results.  In a Laboratory, CBD Oil managed to reduce the COVID infection by 50% demonstrating huge potential. This spurred on further trials.

It is very exciting to see the potential of this amazing discovery.

Extracting CBD from Hemp

The extraction process concentrates on the Hemp flowers for the Cannabinoids. 

A variety of methods are used to extract CBD from the hemp plant.  The oldest form of extraction is the use of ethanol (simple alcohol).

Using high-proof alcohol, the CBD is drawn out of the plant with minimal damage.  By suspending them in a liquid it eliminates damage from oxidisation.

cultivation of hemp

Cultivation has minimal impact on the environment.  Hemp crops are naturally resistant to pests and therefore do not require pesticides.  As hemp grows it cleans the soil. It extracts soil contaminants and restores the topsoil.

In addition, it performs Carbon Sequestration. It cleans pollutants from our air.  Interestingly, hemp removes between 10-15 tonnes of atmospheric carbon per hectare.  This occurs in three months, making it much more effective than trees.

Furthermore, as this crop can grow four times a year, it results in a lot of cleaning. Simultaneously cleans the soil in which it grows.
