I know you’re looking for relief from TMJ pain. And I know you’d probably prefer something natural, safe, and effective.
My wife and I needed to find the same thing.
We have tried everything. Very few things actually work, including prescriptions.
A few things, though, are very good at helping her TMJ pain.
That’s why we need to talk about cannabidiol.
CBD and TMJ
Cannabidiol is, by far, the most effective remedy for TMJ pain we have seen.
My wife prefers it as a tincture that she places under her tongue but you can also find it in salves, capsules, gummies, and even in high concentrations in certain marijuana strains (but we won’t dwell on that).
Effective within minutes (almost instantly if used under the tongue) and lasts for up to several hours (gummies tend to take longer to kick in, but last longer within your system).
We keep that cannabidiol oil tincture with us wherever we go (it tastes like you just licked an orange). It is the first thing I hand my wife when relieving a tmj episode.
What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
You might have heard of CBD recently, or seen it on shelves and in health products.
What is CBD? And where does it come from?
Cannabidiol is one of the many compounds found in cannabis.
Also: it is non-psychoactive, so it does not make you feel “high” or “stoned.”
So what does cannabidiol do?
Cannabidiol relieves pain, anxiety, and inflammation.
Pain, anxiety, and inflammation are your primary targets in pain relief. And that makes CBD an incredibly valuable tool to add to your arsenal.
Scientific and clinical research—much of it sponsored by the US government—underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. Further evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at high doses. – from projectcbd.org
You can find cannabidiol just about anywhere within a cannabis plant. This means they can harvest cannabidiol in significant quantities from hemp or marijuana plants in the form of oil.
Once extracted as a constituent of cannabis oil, CBD can be processed into a number of commercial products like liquids and capsules or further isolated from the oil, purifying it to its crystalline form. Products made from CBD-rich cannabis oil can be found on the shelves of medical marijuana dispensaries, in health food and wellness stores, and online from a range of retailers. – from medicalmarijuanainc.com
This high availability lowers the price on cbd related products. That means you can source high quality pain relief at OTC prices.
CBD, TMJ, and YOU
I can really only draw one conclusion: cannabidiol can be used for effective TMJ management. I hope you’re drawing the same conclusion.
Cannabidiol targets your major symptoms, and doesn’t have risky side effects.
It’s as fast as narcotics, but it doesn’t carry an addiction risk.
Plus: you don’t feel heavily medicated!
Cannabidiol targets your worst TMJ smyptoms
First of all: CBD can reduce your stress. This means less you will grind your teeth, and clench your jaw, less often. You are in pain from clenching and grinding. You should do anything in your power to reduce it.
Next: CBD can reduce inflammation. Swelling and inflammation increase your pain. You can get control of it.
Finally: CBD can eliminate pain. Eliminate your pain. Bring you real relief.
Landmark Study of Cannabis Use
Care By Design did a study on cannabis use and patient outcomes. And that study showed the value of cannabidiol in treating a number of medical conditions.
They surveyed 2500 medical marijuana patients. 12% of those patients were battling cancer.
And all of them were using a high cannabidiol strain to treat chronic disease, pain, and inflammation.
They learned a number of things in the survey. But I think most importantly they learned:
- cannabidiol appears to be remarkably good at relieving pain.
- cannabidiol also appears to be quite effective in improving patients’ sense of wellbeing.
You should immediately see that you can use CBD to treat TMJ pain. And I’d say that CBD needs to be part of your pain treatment regimen.
CBD is a dynamo at treating the exact things that are listed as risk factors for TMJ.
So use what other people are learning for your benefit. Most of all use what I’ve learned for your benefit.
CBD is effective and you need to consider it as a part of your pain management routine.
Where can you find CBD?
You can find the exact CBD oil we use here from Pacific Daze. That’s what we have available locally, we love it, and I am currently not partnered with them in any way. I just really think it’s a great product.
If you’d like a little variety, I can personally recommend some other options:
They have a delicious natural hemp flavor, activate in minutes, and destroy TMJ pain.
HempMeds is a premium supplier of CBD products for you and your pet. Their scientific formulations are designed to be highly effective, and their tinctures are lightly sweetened.
Their pump spray mechanism is much easier to use than a dropper application. I plan on testing all their products to see which work best with TMJ pain.
Hemp Oil by NatuLabUSA
Some people love the peppermint flavor, some people think it tastes like radishes. I think both are a little true.
Serenity Hemp Oil
This is very similar to what we use. It tastes a bit like licking an orange, or like how your mouth tastes when smelling oranges.
