Question: Which CBD product has shown the best effect on nerve pain?

Answer: When it comes to nerve pain internal use of CBD such as CBD Oil or CBD Tinctures works far better than topical use. Especially if it's deep-rooted nerve pain. For instance, if you have a slipped disc and it's impinging on a nerve. For something like that, a topical is not going to be as effective. But taking the CBD products internally absolutely is going to be more effective. So if it's a mild to moderate nerve pain, then CBD products are the way to go. If it's anything more severe, then you do need to add some amount of THC to effectively treat the pain. And specifically, if it's shingles or spinal stenosis in that case you absolutely do need some amount of THC to effectively treat the pain. But otherwise, if it's a mild to moderate nerve pain, internally using some formulation of CBD will be effective. So things like tinctures, edibles, and even inhalation are effective for mild to moderate nerve pain. So hopefully that answers your question.

What are some causes of Neuropathic Pain?

Neuropathic pain doesn’t seem to have an obvious cause but has been found in some cases of neuropathic pain which include but are not limited to:

  • Shingles
  • Spine surgery
  • Thyroid problems
  • Nerve or spinal compression as a result of herniated discs
  • Facial nerve damage
  • Chemotherapy
  • Spinal Stenosis

When you ask which CBD product, that's really the best way to answer that question. So which CBD formulation works best for nerve pain is the best way to ask this question. Of course, I'm going to recommend Doc Patel's brand of CBD products. I can't speak to other brands because I really don't know what goes on behind the scenes, but I absolutely do know what goes on behind the scenes with Doc Patel's because I am talking to our manufacturers on a regular basis. I am helping with the formulations, I am going through the laboratory test results myself. And so having been in the industry for eight years there's quite a bit of scrutiny that goes into that.
