People have long been using over the counter pain medications to treat inflammatory or painful conditions, but at major costs to their health. There are many options for over the counter NSAIDs, such as acetaminophen, naproxen, aspirin, ibuprofen, and some prescription drugs as well, but these drugs, while commonly used, are dangerous.
NSAIDs can severely damage the body including the kidneys, liver, stomach, and can contribute to heart attacks, stroke, and even death. They can also cause ringing in the ears, heartburn, high blood pressure, headaches, dizziness, and they can contribute to rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. These dangers are typically associated with the NSAIDs inability to selectively affect enzymes, so while they reduce pain they also reduce the body’s ability to activate platelets which are associated with blood clotting.
Luckily, there have been many promising results coming from the use of cannabis for the treatment of inflammation. Numerous studies have shown that cannabis can provide a non-toxic way to reduce inflammation in the body. There are also many different options for how a person can ingest the CBD within the cannabis, such as smoking, edibles, tinctures, pills, and more. There are many options available by using CBD and cannabis without the health risks.
I have seen thousands of patients eliminate or reduce the need for NSAIDs, with the use of cannabis. #HealthStatus
