Pain over large areas like ribs, shoulders, low back or sacroiliac joints can be debilitating. Chiropractic care, foot support, and laser therapy assists the body in realigning and healing these areas, but pain relief in the present is important too. Dr. Jeremy has found that many patients respond well to this topical combination of menthol, camphor, and CBD/CBG.
Menthol stimulates the nerves in a thermal fashion, creating a feeling of cold that eases pain without inhibiting muscle function like ice would.
Camphor has been used for centuries and also is similar to menthol in that it has thermal and pain relieving affects on nerve endings.
Our bodies have endocannabinoid receptors deep in the brain as well as in the nerve tracts that run through every area of the body. Many people are familiar with THC because of its psychotropic effects, but cannabis also contains high levels of CBD which inhibit the effects of THC and have differing effects on local areas. This product contains no THC and is designed to interact with endocannabinoid receptors in the peripheral nerves and tissues.
Preclinical studies suggest that CBG may share many beneficial characteristics with CBD. Both CBG and CBD are nonintoxicating cannabinoids that seems to have antioxidative, neuroprotective, and pain relieving properties. When paired together, CBD and CBG may offer powerful anti-inflammatory benefits to treat neuroinflammation. CBG may also stimulate receptors that influence pain, inflammation, and heat sensitivity.
