CBD can help alleviate Sciatica
CBD reduces pain.
CBD helps to relax muscular tissues that are stretched or strained around squeezed nerves.
It also acts as an inverse agonist of the CB2 receptor, which explains its well-documented anti-inflammatory benefits.
Along with CBD, you can also use ice packs or ice massage to bring some relief in the first week following the onset of sciatica.
Thereafter, administering heat can aid by increasing blood flow and relaxing muscles.
Gentle exercise and stretching can also help with blood flow, healing, and pain relief.
You should always seek medical help to determine which therapies are most likely to be most effective.
