Soothe Symptoms of Fibromyalgia Using CBD
Little known but common, fibromyalgia is a disease that is characterized by chronic and diffuse pain throughout the entire body. Muscle and joint pain, intense fatigue, sleep disturbances: people with fibromyalgia claim to have “ache everywhere”. Are you or your loved ones affected by this pathology? To soothe your symptoms, Harbl offers you natural products that rely on the benefits of CBD. Explanations.
Fibromyalgia and the endocannabinoid system
In his research work, Ethan B. Russo, renowned neurologist and psychopharmacologist, highlights the importance of the endocannabinoid system in the regulation of various pathologies and in particular fibromyalgia.
But what is the endocannabinoid system? It is a signaling system that regulates, in the human body, biological processes such as: metabolism, pain sensation, neuronal activity or immune function.
This set is composed of membrane receptors named CB1 and CB2. Their role is to serve as access points for cannabinoids to interact with the overall endocannabinoid system. CB1 receptors are mostly found in the central nervous system while CB2 receptors are found in various parts of the immune system.
Thus, the use of cannabinoids is presented today as an aid to naturally fight against a pathology such as fibromyalgia.
Concretely, how can CBD work?
Patients with fibromyalgia develop central sensitivity syndrome. This corresponds to chronic pain explained – in part – by a deregulation of the central nervous system. The latter causes sensory hypersensitivity (or neuronal hyperexcitability) which leads to an amplification of pain.
What is the reason for this deregulation? It is associated with abnormal activation of glial cells (also called glia). These cells are present in the human brain and are connected to neurons.
CBD is involved in the inhibition of glial cells. Indeed, it promotes the activation of CB1 and CB2 receptors. More specifically, CBD seems to bind more easily to the CB2 receptor, resulting in beneficial effects, in particular on the immune system, energy balance and inflammation.
How to measure its effectiveness? In 2012, a Canadian study led by Dr Fitzcharles of the University McGill has tested more than 300 people with fibromyalgia with an intake of 1 g of CBD per day. Result: 72% of people felt significant pain relief.
Fibromyalgia syndrome: causes difficult to determine?
In Switzerland, 400,000 people have suffered from fibromyalgia (2018). It is a complicated disease to detect because no lesion is causing the pain. In the same way, its causes are therefore difficult to determine. TheSwiss Rheumatism League highlights 7 potential reasons: heredity (genetics), pain disorder, stress, psychic factors, deficiency of mitochondrial function, malnutrition and hyperacidity.
