Round Up - CBD for Fibromyalgia Sufferers (Fibromyalgia and CBD Bath Bomb Benefits)

Our customers with fibromyalgia have had incredible experiences with cannabidiol (CBD) as a treatment.  Take Teresa of Salinas, California, for instance.  Teresa served as our original inspiration and test subject for our CBD bath bombs.  When we were creating our formula, we would test all variations on Teresa, a sufferer of fibromyalgia

Teresa's Experience with CBD Bath Bombs

Our thought was that if she experienced the benefits of CBD bath bombs, others surely would as well.  Teresa has fibromyalgia that she describes as debilitating and like pins and needles throughout her body, for which she found few successful treatment options.  The pain not only curbed mobility but left her exhausted due to lack of sleep and the stress associated with constant serious pain. Teresa tried our initial formulations as we continued on our quest to find a product with superior benefits.  The result was OOOH CBD Bath Bomb.  After trying it for the first time, Teresa reported she was pain free for 48 hours straight, which was unheard of for her despite being on several prescriptions and trying other homeopathic treatment remedies. 

 

She reported that her energy increased, and she was finally able to sleep.  In addition to sharing Teresa's experience, we thought it would be helpful to also share resources of interest about CBD for other fibromyalgia sufferers.

The article explains, what most fibromyalgia sufferers know.  Fibromyalgia is a life-long illness characterized by widespread pain all over the body.  People who have this condition show a variety of symptoms including trigger points on their spine, chronic muscle pain, anxiety, fatigue, digestive disorders and insomnia. While fibromyalgia is not fatal, it can seriously affect the quality of life for those who are diagnosed with it.

The article concludes that although few treatments are available, the benefits of CBD and CBD bath bombs stand out as viable means to manage symptoms. 

This article discusses more about why CBD may be helpful for fibromyalgia sufferers. 

The article first acknowledges that researchers cannot decisively say why the compound appears to reduce some fibromyalgia symptoms.  The article goes on to offer some strong theories that are still being researched.

According to the authors, the pain-relieving effects of CBD may be explained by the ways the substance affects the brain.  CBD may interrupt nerve pathways that send signals of pain between the brain and the body.  CBD also interacts with the endocannabinoid system as it relates to the body's neuro pathways .  See our quick explanatory video on the ECS. 

The article also references the anti-inflammatory action of CBD, reducing heat and swelling.  This in turn has the potential to reduce pain associated with fibromyalgia.  Interestingly, the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD are impacting the growing trend of CBD benefits for athletes.   

The authors also note that a combination of other compounds in the hemp plant may intensify the positive effects of CBD and provide additional benefits.  This is called the entourage effect or, as we refer to it, a Madrigal  the blended harmony of many voices.  This is why full-spectrum CBD is valued.  It brings together all 300 or more cannabinoids, orschestrated together to amplify the power of CBD. 

We found that the most interesting part of the article was the reference to a 2016 study that suggested that a lack of endocannabinoids — neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors — may be at the root of chronic pain syndromes, including migraines and fibromyalgia. The authors note that taking CBD may correct this deficiency, explaining the compound’s success in alleviating chronic pain.  This finding speaks even more to the benefits of CBD bath bombs for pain relief.

This Healthline article surveys several scientific studies related to fibromyalgia  pain management and CBD.  The most recent research described was a 2019 Israeli study where hundreds of people with fibromyalgia were provided with  CBD and observed over a period of at least 6 months.  The researchers concluded that although the study did have some limitations, medical cannabis was a safe and effective treatment for fibromyalgia.   

In Conclusion

Although we acknowledge that FDA approval of CBD as a treatment for fibromyalgia has not been granted, the science seems to be progressing as these articles attest.  We hope that you too can discover the benefits of CBD bath bombs for pain management, relaxation and recovery.  We invite you to try our OOOH CBD Bath Bomb and AAAH CBD Bath Bomb to experience the benefits of Living More.
