Due to its supposed pain-relieving properties, CBD may potentially help manage chronic pain and associated anxiety. It may bind to the endocannabinoid system, triggering your brain to produce anandamide. Anandamide is a hormone responsible for pain regulation, reducing pain and perception in your brain.

CBD may also have anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce inflammation in your brain and nervous system.

Anxiety, a common issue experienced by individuals suffering from chronic pain, may also be managed by CBD consumption. It may bind to CB1 receptors in your brain, increasing the ‘happy’ hormone levels in your system, leaving you with a calm, relaxed feeling.
