​ Finding the Right CBD for Back Pain

If you suffer from daily back pain, you’ve probably considered using CBD to help. You’re not alone. Many people have turned to cannabidiol to combat back pain and have experienced a great deal of success.

One of the most common things we hear from customers who suffer from back pain is that it took them a bit of experimentation to find the perfect product. CBD affects everyone differently, so it’s important to find the CBD that works for you personally.

CBD is one of the most popular wellness compounds on the market. It has changed the lives of people around the globe. If you're suffering from back pain, it might just be the answer you've been looking for.

In this article we’ll take a closer look at CBD for back pain and discuss the variety of products available, what they do, and how you can find the perfect CBD for your aches and pains. If you’re interested in using CBD for back pain but aren't sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place!

What Type of CBD Do You Use and Why?

When selecting a CBD product to use specifically for back pain, it’s a good idea to first consider the CBD that you already use. What are its benefits and what do you feel its lacking? Is there another form of CBD that could potentially be more beneficial? Or are you 100% satisfied with the way your CBD influences your back pain?

Our guess is that you’re reading this article because the CBD you use is somewhat effective in helping you manage your back pain, but you feel you can get more out of it. You probably can and we are here to help!

Choosing the Perfect Potency

If you take CBD regularly for back pain, but aren’t feeling you're getting the most out of your CBD, the first thing you should do is increase the potency you use. Many people dive right into taking CBD but never take the time to experiment with different potencies. This is a mistake, because if you are taking too little, or too much CBD, you aren’t experiencing its full range of benefits.

Finding the right potency is absolutely essential. This is especially if you want to use CBD to help with back pain. We recommend investing some time in finding the right potency.

Start with a small amount of CBD. A dropper or half dropper of oil will be fine. After you take your serving of CBD, wait 30 minutes or so and take note of the effects you feel. If the effects aren’t strong enough, increase your serving size the next time you take CBD. Repeat this process until you've found the perfect potency.

Experimenting with Different Formulations

There are a multitude of CBD formulations available and each one has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Vaping will allow you quick access to the benefits of CBD, but it won't stay in your system very long. CBD topicals take a while to soak into your skin, but once they do they stay in your system longer than any other type of CBD.

CBD edibles are the middle ground. They have a moderate onset time and continue to work in your system for a substantial amount of time. Everyone has their own wants and needs when it comes to CBD. Some people need it to work fast and have no problem maintaining a fairly frequent dosing schedule throughout the day. Others much prefer to rub some CBD on the discomforted area and let it work its magic without giving it a second thought.

You may love CBD tinctures but find that topicals work better for back pain. Or maybe you are a big fan of topicals but discover that vaping provides the rapid relief you need. Spend some time experimenting with different products to see which one works best for you.

Topicals vs Edibles

Edibles and topicals are the two most common types of CBD used for back pain. Edibles are great because they deliver a hearty helping of cannabinoids throughout your entire body. This is beneficial for a number of reasons, but one of the most important is that it allows your entire body access to beneficial cannabinoids.

Topicals are even more popular than edibles for back pain. Topicals are the only type of CBD that you apply directly to the problem spot. If your lower back is in pain, you can rub some soothing CBD cream on it. If it's your upper back that is bringing you down, try some CBD massage oil.

Back pain can put a real damper on the day, but millions of Americans have found relief in CBD.
