Do you suffer pain in your joints? It could be your knees, your elbows, your shoulder, your ankle or your hips - Joint pain is a very common complaint nowadays. Whether it’s a strong pain or a weak one, it lowers our quality of life, letting the pain seep into every action you make and making you dread stairs, jumps and any menial task that requires you to put pressure on your joints.
It strikes people of both genders and occurs in people of all races and ages, although it is of course especially bad for those of later ages. There is no other word for it but an epidemic.
This epidemic is followed closely by another one - pain medication. Pain medication has gone rampant, with thousands of deaths a year in the United States alone from overuse. People who take NSAID medication (such as Ibuprofen, Advil, Tylenol, Aleve, etc.) - are doing themselves more harm than good, with the most common problems with a long period of use are stomach ulcers, headaches, liver problems, and kidney problem - to name just a few.

Many people don't realize that the oil from this plant has been used to relieve pain for centuries, with the first recordings of the plant being used to relieve joint pain and muscle cramps in Chinese medicine dating back to 2,900 BC! As it often happens, modern science is also currently catching up to the pain soothing effects of this plant, and they have managed to isolate the component that is responsible for those effects.
This oil can interfere with the Endocannabinoid pain receptors, dulling down the perception of pain and lowering the level of inflammation in the body. This makes the oil ideal for those who suffer from chronic inflammation and pain, as it can relieve the sensation of pain in these people. Studies suggest that this oil can help with a variety of pains, particularly caused by arthritis and multiple sclerosis, but it is known to be able to reduce pain induced by other conditions, such as cancer, IBD, and chronic neurological disorders as well.
These products come in a variety of forms, with oil being by far the most popular one. These oils can be used in a variety of ways. Most people put a few drops of the oil underneath their tongue, which allows the oil to be absorbed directly into the blood through the fine capillaries. However, you can also apply the oil topically to ease joint pain and dry and acne-prone skin or even add it to your food and drinks.
The recommended dosage will depend on your weight and personal preference. Most resources suggest starting with a small dose, 20-40 mg a day for the first 7 days and then building up to a dosage you feel comfortable with, in 5 mg increments every week.
So if you suffer from any kind of inflammation, chronic pain or even injury pain that just won't go away, try this all-natural, non-addictive solution before trying anything else.
