I’m Dale Hewett, founder of new phase blends, and in this video, we’ll discuss CBD its potential therapeutic effects in managing the stubborn, and very painful, symptoms of fibromyalgia and arthritis.

We’ll address fibromyalgia first, then dig into using CBD for arthritis, since a lot of people who deal with fibromyalgia also struggle with some pretty bad arthritis.
On a personal note, my mother-in-law struggles from a severe form of fibromyalgia, so this particular topic hits home for me.
CBD, or cannabidiol, oil is a popular product prevalent in today’s world. This compound is primarily extracted from the hemp plant, and mixed with a potent carrier oil such as coconut oil (MCT oil) or hemp seed oil.
There is a reason CBD is so popular, and it’s because it works well. It is interesting to note, however, that this compound wasn’t always federally legal like it is today.
In 2018, the Farm Bill was passed, allowing the federal legalization of hemp cultivation and sales across the states. This bill is what gave birth to the CBD boom of 2019.
In the US, cannabidiol (CBD) products must contain a percentage of less than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as mandated by the federal government. In the past two years since becoming legalized, demand for CBD products have dramatically increased due to their potential medicinal values, such as fibromyalgia management of pain and discomfort.
People are now able to get all of the documented medical benefits of the cannabis plant, without the psycho-active compound known as THC.
The best CBD oil for fibromyalgia pains will most likely not have THC in it anyway, since THC does not attack nerve pain as well as CBD might be able to.
You see, CBD is not intoxicating, at all, like THC is. Most people are familiar with THC because of how it gets users high after consuming it. This is not possible, at all, through legal CBD products.
While hemp and marijuana both come from cannabis, hemp plants cannot contain enough THC to get you even remotely high. There is no possibility for you to feel any intoxicating effects from hemp-derived CBD.
CBD is extremely effective at blocking pain through interacting with nerve signals, and also great at reducing inflammation. Nerve pain and inflammation are, perhaps, the worst parts associated with fibromyalgia. For this reason alone, you really need to consider using CBD oils for fibromyalgia relief.
The research about the efficacy of CBD in managing the symptoms of fibromyalgia is still in the infancy stage. It is not exactly clear how CBD works to manage this condition. According to the preliminary studies, the pain-relieving properties of this compound will minimize some of the painful effects fibromyalgia can bring.
What we do know is that CBD is great at blocking nerve pain signals, and reducing inflammation. These are usually the areas that both fibromyalgia patients the most.
It makes sense, then, that using CBD for fibromyalgia should be used to help manage your symptoms. We have CB receptors all over our bodies, too. These receptors are known as CB1 and CB2. CBD has a high affinity to the CB2 receptors located in the brain, which play a crucial role in managing inflammation and pain in the body.
Once it attaches to the CB2 receptors, your body will produce natural cannabinoids, which binds to the CB2 receptors. The physiological effect dramatically decreases pain and inflammation in your body, and can relieve some other symptoms as well.
Perhaps the most popular way to use CBD for certain symptoms is the mixture of CBD oils with the topical cream. While the drops are absorbed into your blood stream, the topical creams can penetrate local areas causing pain. The result is a far superior way of approaching pain management. Attacking from two avenues is better than one.
Before we get into the arthritis side of things, I think it’s important that we understand exactly what arthritis is, and why it is so painful.
Sometimes people have trouble finding effective arthritis pain relief medication because they are taking the wrong approach to pain management.
First of all, arthritis is actually not a disease. The term ‘arthritis’ is actually a broad term that addresses join pains. We have joints all over our bodies, and arthritis can target any of these joints, although the wrists and fingers are most commonly affected.
