Pain is one of our body’s ways of letting us know that something is wrong. Women in particular often experience pelvic pain, or pain below the belly button and above the legs. This can be caused by a number of things, from cysts to digestive problems. Some women experience pelvic pain after giving birth. Others have a more serious medical condition that is causing the pain, such as endometriosis, which has no cure despite popular assumption.
It is very important to see a doctor if you have pelvic pain. But no matter the cause of your pain, know that cannabis can be of great help! It has been used for centuries around the world to cure ailments and alleviate symptoms, and research has shown that it is safer than the use of pain medications.
Our bodies make natural chemical receptors called endocannabinoids. They are part of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), a harm reduction system found in the brain, nervous system, and elsewhere. They keep everything from our sleep to our appetites running smoothly. It is a common misconception that these receptors only live in the brain and nervous system. They can also be found in the skin, gut, and reproductive organs. They are even found in break milk!
Researchers continue to find evidence that the ECS is important when it comes to treating pain and inflammation.
When our bodies cannot naturally heal themselves, cannabis can be a great helper. The cannabis plant has properties that mimic endocannabinoids and gives the body and brain a boost.
There are two main compounds found in cannabis: THC and CBD. Both are very effective in managing pain. THC gives us that familiar “high,” while CBD does not. For instance, medicinal CBD oil contains small amounts of THC, so users get all of the benefits of cannabis without altering their state of mind. A Canadian study found no serious side effects of medical cannabis after one year of pain treatment.
Way back in 1988, researchers in London found that cannabis is up to four times more effective than aspirin at treating inflammation. That’s great news, as aspirin can result in fatal overdoses, while cannabis cannot.
Prescription opioids like oxycodone can also cause nausea and vomiting, while cannabis might relieve your tummy troubles and increase your appetite. Opioids are also addictive.
States like Oregon, California, and Washington have seen a decrease in opioid overdoses. It’s no wonder, as cannabis is legal in all three of them, and many are trading in their opioid drugs for medical weed.
