The innovative products of PotNetwork Holding, Inc.(OTCMKTS:POTN) have revolutionized pain care. Could they be the cure for your sore muscles?
Most of us have experienced muscle and joint aches either related to long-term health problems or exercise. These aches are often treated by prescription or over the counter pain medication. Most people know the health risks associated with Opioids but many are unaware that seemingly innocuous NSAID based painkillers such as Ibuprofen and Aleve can also pose a risk to your health. In August 2017 the FDA outlined the dangers of NSAIDS citing that prolonged use increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
In the search for safer pain relief, many Americans have begun to turn to cannabidiol (CBD). The CBD revolution has helped to change the lives of millions of pain sufferers and PotNetwork Holding, Inc.(OTCMKTS:POTN), with its subsidiary Diamond CBD has been leading the charge.
How does CBD work?
CBD is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp and makes up 40 percentof the plant extract. Unlike THC you can consume CBD without experiencing any sort of “high”, this makes it exceptionally valuable for pain relief and allows it to be a federally legal substance.
The CBD chemical interacts with a number of receptors such as vanilloid, adenosine and serotonin receptors. This can have a variety of effects such as the activation of adenosine receptors which gives CBD its anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects. Cannabidiol is able to reduce pain by interacting with TRPV-1 receptors which regulate body temperature, pain perception, and inflammation.
CBD is insoluble in water and is extracted by combining help with other compounds such as C02, butane, ethanol or olive oil. The cleanest method to extract cannabidiol is to use a technique called supercritical C02 extraction. This method, used by Diamond CBD, uses carbon dioxide at a different pressure to extract the CBD oil. This method is expensive but very gentle and ensures that the purest quality of oil is obtained.
CBD is becoming an important part of pro-athletes training regimens
Ever since MMA athlete Nick Diaz was given an official warning by the USADAfor vaping in 2016 CBD has been a controversial topic in sports. Diaz claimed that CBD “helps with the healing process and inflammation, stuff like that. So you want to get these for before and after the fights, training. It’ll make your life a better place.” Other high profile athletes such as Leonard Marshal have also come out in support of hemp-based pain relief.
In 2018 Marshal and Diaz were vindicated when the World Anti-Doping agency removed CBD from its list of prohibited substances. This decision will likely lead to an increase of pro-athletes using CBD as part of their training regimen and will help legitimize Cannabidiol as a pain management tool.
CBD creams provide effective simple pain relief
Pro-athletes aren’t the only one who experience muscle pains. All of us have gone too hard at the gym and struggled with aches the next day. CBD can help to alleviate those pains. Some people prefer to vape but this sometimes causes respiratory irritation and isn’t for everybody.
If you want to avoid the respiratory irritation that comes with smoking or vaping CBD one of the best alternatives is to use creams. One of the industry leaders is Diamond CBD who have helped lead the CBD revolution by offering some of the most innovative products on the market.
Their range of Biotech CBD creams offers effective pain relief in doses ranging from 250 mg to 1000 mg of CBD. Their unique product uses a powerful combination of natural ingredients such as aloe vera and CBD in order to maximize pain relief. The creams are particularly effective for relieving the muscle pains and aches associated with difficult training regimens.
Diamond CBD also offers a special high strength cream in partnership with NFL Hall-of-Famer Lawrence Taylor. The Lawrence Taylor Painmaster CBD cream is specifically formulated to be effective against sore muscle areas associated with high-intensity sports. This makes it perfect for people who love to push themselves at the gym.
CBD creams can also help to relieve the symptoms of Rheumatoid arthritis and Osteoarthritis. CBD has been shown to reduce the swelling and pain associated with Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis in rats. Applying cream to the affected errors can help to reduce swelling and the massaging motion will help to circulate blood flow to the joints, making CBD cream an excellent alternative to oil drops.
Diamond CBD offers some of the most effective products on the market and they are adding to their range on a regular basis. Their quality products have allowed them to consistently lead the CBD market and provide innovative pain solutions.
