CBD and Chronic Back Pain and Back Spasms

Published

on

CBD Application: Back Pain

Chronic back pain is one of those things that you just can’t comprehend unless you go through it. It’s so much worse than it sounds. It’s truly debilitating. And, for those who suffer from this ailment, there is no escape. Nothing over the counter comes close to truly alleviating the constant anguish.

In this article, we will point to how CBD might offer hope to those suffering from this unending obstacle to subjective well-being.

Common Treatments for Back Pain

NSAIDS, which are anti-inflammatory drugs, are the most common back pain medications at present. In other words, we are talking about Ibuprofen, Voltaren, and even Valium. When somebody is diagnosed with back pain, bursitis or some other inflammation related condition, Ibuprofen is normally a piece of the medical solution. For inflammatory conditions or some other muscle pain or nerve pain, NSAIDS are as yet thought to be the best treatment.

But NSAIDs do not come without their own set of adversities in the package. Note that your GP will ever articulate a word about this. What they don’t let you know is that a too high dose will cause gastro-intestinal disorders including constipation and ulcers.

Intervertebral discs are the cartilaginous discs separating the vertebrae in the spinal cord. They are the back’s shock absorbers. When they deteriorate, everyday movement becomes painful as the discs fail to handle their jobs properly.

About 25% of the populace is constantly dealing with this type of IVD degeneration, but there is still no viable treatment in sight. Except, perhaps, for CBD, as we will discuss below.

Current Research

We have seen the scientific field progress toward a greater appreciation for CBD and its potential as a palliative for pain as well as inflammation.

Great strides are underway to push this process forward. One interesting study got going in 2015, when a connection was found among Cannabinoids and their impact on perpetual back pain and related conditions. CBD (Cannabidiol), may be especially appropriate for our body’s pain issues.

In this study, 19 rats were essentially given a condition like IVD degeneration. Later, an MRI was performed after low dose CBD treatments, but the results did not show material improvement. However, a higher dosage did show a material impact over the 15-day study period. The study resulted in a well-supported conclusion that CBD effectively combatted disc degeneration when high doses were given.

CBD and Back Pain

To make a long story short, it would appear, according to what research data we have at this point, that CBD can potentially help to manage pain associated with chronic back issues resulting from IVD degeneration.

In addition, for those who have poor reactions to current pharmaceutical solutions, this may be an even more inviting route. And, generally speaking, we can and should add back pain to the long list of pain sources for which the anecdotal evidence is piling up in favor of CBD.

CannTrust Holdings Inc (NYSE:CTST) Penetrates Into The United States After Investing $20 Million

Published

on

CannTrust Holdings Inc (NYSE:CTST), a Canadian company that produces and sells medical and recreational marijuana has announced the expansion of its business into the United States.

The Canadian firm revealed that it signed a Letter of Intent through which it will start working with Elk Grove Farming Company, LLC to access more than 3,000 hemp production acres in California. The two companies struck a joint partnership that will allow CannTrust to secure a footing in the California market which is one of the biggest cannabis markets in the U.S.

“This agreement represents another bold move for CannTrust. Our U.S. operation is expected to deliver a significant increase in low-cost production capacity,” stated CannTrust CEO Peter Aceto.

CannTrust is financially ready to tap into the U.S market

The CannTrust CEO also noted that the company will take advantage of its experience in the formulation of standardized CBD products as part of its strategy to enter the U.S market. Mr. Aceto also revealed that his company’s successful equity offering provided enough financial muscle to fuel its ambitious expansion plans.

CannTrust aims to be among the leading and trusted suppliers of high-quality, standardized CBD formulations derived from hemp. The company believes that there will be an increasing demand for high-grade CBD formulations from international retailers. It therefore makes sense to invest in processes that will add value to the end product such as genetic studies and expert growing practices to achieve the highest safety and quality standards.

Elk Grove and CannTrust will each have 50% ownership in their joint operations. Elk Grove is an ideal partner for the endeavor because it has years of farming experience in a variety of products. Its focus includes products designed for crop protection, supply, and input. Its operations are distributed across California, which means that the groundwork has already been laid for the partnership. It will thus be easier for the CannTrust to penetrate into the California market.

Elk Grove executive Morgan Houchin stated that his company was excited about the partnership with CannTrust. He added that his firm’s experience in farming operations will be a great combination with CannTrust’s experience in creating class-leading formulations.

Lifestyle brand management firm Rocky Mountain High Brands Inc (OTCMKTS:RMHB) announced on Wednesday that it secured a broker deal with Carlin Group for its products in the retail space.

The broker agreement will allow Carlin to represent RMHB’s CBD-infused drinks through the HEMPd brand. It will also represent beverages infused with Hempseed extract under RMHB brands. The deal will also cover CBD-infused wellness products such as lotions, water-soluble solutions, capsules, gummies and tinctures as part of the HEMPd brand. Spirit Water will also be covered under the agreement.

The RMHB-Carlin broker deal covers multiple states. They include Missouri, Nebraska, Texas, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to have our entire product line represented by Carlin Group,” stated RMHB CEO Michael Welch.

The Carlin broker deal will boost RMHB’s exposure

Welch noted that the broker deal will strategically allow RMHB to leverage optimal exposure to mass marketers, grocery store chains, convenient stores, major retailers and other types of outlets. The company would not have managed to reach such a wide range of outlets cost-effectively without a broker deal.

The RMHB CEO also added that his company and Carlin will maintain a close collaboration so that they can facilitate retail availability of RMHB products. Welch also revealed that RMHB reviewed numerous other retail introduction options. This was before settling on Carlin which the company believes is the best-suited brand to rapidly get its products onto retail shelves.

Carlin Group’s Managing Director Albert Vergilio noted in a statement that his company was excited to host RMHB and the CBD-based products that are part of its HEMPd brand in Carlin’s new CBD division. He also added that it is part of investing in the future of CBD considering the fast-tracked popularity of CBD products, and the regulations that govern them.

Carlin’s sales team will undergo some training to get them acquainted with RMBH’s products. The sales team will then hold meetings with corporate customers as part of the retail rollout of the products. Sales that will be part of the broker deal are expected to kick off in Q3.
