Does CBD Oil Need THC in it to Work on Pain?

Pain is unique in that it is an entirely subjective experience. You can try to explain your pain, and somebody may have experienced a similar situation to empathize with your pain, but nobody can really feel exactly what you’re feeling at any given moment. Therefore, it’s a difficult thing to measure, examine, test for, and treat. Scientists can see which nerves are firing when pain is experienced, but the severity is still largely experiential. For instance, someone could register a hang nail as a “level 1” pain, while another could score it as “level 7”. A broken bone could also produce different levels of pain from person to person. Nonetheless, pain is a universal experience, and is one the most try to avoid.

When it comes to pain management, there are a plethora of options available to the average consumer, both over-the-counter and prescription types. Drugs, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and aspirin all have different mechanisms in how they work. One may even work better for an individual than another, or one may work for a certain type of pain over another. Some of these drugs have adverse effects that may be dangerous if taken long-term. Prescription pain-killers can also cause addiction and/or withdrawal symptoms for the user. Consumers looking for a better source for pain management have started considering CBD oil as an option. With so many users already touting its many benefits, it seems like a no-brainer! Some worry, though, that CBD oil for pain isn’t as effective as THC.

Does CBD Need THC to Work?

Just like with any other pain medication, CBD may work differently for different people and may work for certain types of pain more than others. It will take some experimenting, but most users have found that whole plant CBD sourced from hemp works well for pain management. This type of CBD contains no more than 0.3% THC in the solution, so it won’t cause any mental incapacitation in the user.

Others have found ratios of 20:1, 10:1, and even 1:1 CBD to THC work better for managing certain types of pain. Some of these ratios may cause a “high” effect, which can prevent some people from driving, operating machines, or performing their jobs. If CBD alone isn’t strong enough to manage one’s pain, they may try one of these other ratios to find relief. However, CBD alone may be enough to reduce or eliminate a person’s pain without having to experience the effects of THC as well. For milder pain, such as headaches, muscle cramps, or acute pain, isolated CBD tends to work fine for managing the experience. Some tests on rats have also shown improvement for arthritic pain, as well as pain from M.S. The anti-inflammatory effects of CBD may be useful for treating pain related to inflamed tissue or blood vessels, but more research is needed to conclusively make the link between CBD and treating any one type of pain. For now, we have the hundreds of thousands of positive personal experiences proving that CBD works for general pain management.
