Two of the most commonly known components of the cannabis plant, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), have both been shown to have relieving properties. In this blog post, we'll explore how THC and CBD can help deliver relief throughout the body, as well as their effectiveness when used together.
How Does THC Help Relieve Body?
THC works by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), which plays a key role in regulating pain. The ECS is made up of receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced naturally by the body), and THC can bind to and activate these receptors.
When THC binds to the receptor, it can help reduce pain by inhibiting the transmission of pain signals in the spinal cord and brain, aka delivering mind and body relief. In addition, THC can also help reduce inflammation, which can contribute to the overall feeling of pain.
CBD Helps Relieve Pain In A Similar But Different Way
Like THC, CBD also interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system. However, it does not bind to pain receptors quite like THC does. Instead, CBD works by increasing the levels of the endocannabinoid anandamide, which can help reduce pain and inflammation body wide.
CBD also interacts with other receptors in the body, such as the serotonin and vanilloid receptors, which can also play a role in overall pain relief.
Better Together, The Synergistic Effectiveness of THC and CBD for Relief
While cannabis focused research is still underserved, there is a growing body of scientific evidence supporting the effectiveness of THC and CBD for pain relief.
In a 2018 review of studies on cannabis and pain, researchers found that both THC and CBD can help reduce pain and improve sleep in people with chronic pain conditions. A 2015 systematic review of studies on CBD found that it can be an effective treatment for a range of conditions associated with pain.
THC and CBD are two of the most well-known components of cannabis, and both have been shown to have pain-relieving properties. While more research is needed to fully understand how they work and their effectiveness for different types of pain, the scientific evidence so far is promising.
