How Is Chronic Pain Currently Treated?
Traditionally chronic pain in the back, neck and shoulders is treated in one of two ways. Opioid drugs or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
These are used to provide pain relief and reduce inflammation, however they come with serious consequences.
Apart from being extremely addictive, these drugs can also cause horrific side effects with long-term use of NSAIDS associated with indigestion, stomach ulcers, headaches and even liver or kidney problems.

Is There Another Way?
With the serious side-effects of current medical treatment combined with the required long-term use, many people who suffer with continuing back and neck pain are looking for alternative options.
This is where Cannabidiol (CBD) may help.
Research tells us that CBD has analgesic properties, meaning it is an effective pain reliever.
CBD is also a great anti-inflammatory, therefore is able to reduce inflammation associated with chronic back and neck pain.
