Can CBD Lotions and Creams Fix Nerve Pain and Damage?

The body’s nervous system is responsible for everything your body does including important functions such as regulating breathing and sensing heat/cold. When this major system takes damage, naturally its ability to perform those functions will become impaired. Individuals suffering from nerve damage often use topical products to reduce symptoms of nerve damage. Cannabidiol (CBD), a cannabinoid from cannabis, is quickly becoming a vital ingredient in effective topical products for nerve damage and pain. 

Nerve Damage Can Inhibit Livelihood

The nervous system is made up of the body’s network of neurons and nerves that coordinate and transmit signals to other parts of the body. It consists of two components. One is the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. The other is the peripheral nervous system which is comprised of all the varieties of nerves that branch out from the brain and spinal cord including the muscles and organs. 

The nervous system is vital to living a functional and good quality of life. So, any amount of damage can put all of that at risk. Let’s have a look at what nerve damage and pain entails as well as which CBD creams are best for managing symptoms. 

Neuropathy and nerve damage symptoms come in a wide variety, which makes sense when you consider that there are many locations and different nerve types which could be affected. As such, the symptoms will depend on the location and affected nerves but include the following:

Automatic Nerve Damage Symptoms:

  • Inability to sense chest pain
  • Too much sweating or not enough sweating
  • Lightheadedness
  • Dry eyes
  • Dry mouth
  • Constipation 
  • Bladder dysfunction
  • Sexual dysfunction

Motor Nerve Damage Symptoms:

  • Weakness
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Fasciculation (twitching)
  • Paralysis

Sensory Nerve Damage Symptoms:

  • Pain
  • Sensitivity
  • Numbness
  • Tingling 
  • Prickling
  • Burning
  • Positional awareness problems

CBD Creams for Nerve Pain and Damage

Cannabidiol (CBD) has come to gain a lot of attraction for its therapeutic properties. Thankfully, the nervous system contains endocannabinoid receptors to which CBD can bind. CBD has proven time and time again to work effectively for alleviating anxiety, controlling seizures, relieving pain, alleviating nausea and vomiting, reducing inflammation as well as a neuroprotectant. 

CBD topicals can be applied directly to the areas experiencing symptoms. However, reports suggest that it’s unlikely that any type of cream will be able to fix nerve damage. Although the CBD cream will not be able to fix the nerve pain or damage, it will be able to provide relief from symptoms thereby improving the quality of living without the worry of hefty medical bills or adverse side effects from pharmaceutical medication.

The benefits of using CBD cream for nerve pain and damage include providing localized pain management, reducing inflammation, and assisting in maintaining homeostasis in the body. It’s well suited for individuals suffering from nerve pain and damage since it can be directly applied to affected areas of the body. It may not provide complete and total relief but enough to help boost quality of living.
