A treatment with cannabidiol oil (CBD) reduced the pain of 29 patients with peripheral neuropathy in a controlled study conducted by several institutions in the United States.
The researchers used the treatment with 15 people with the condition and another group of 14 people were given a placebo. After 4 weeks, the results were analyzed.
In general terms, “there was a statistically significant reduction in acute, severe pain, cold sensation and nonconformity in the group that used CBD compared to the placebo group.”
The authors point out that the application of CBD for the skin positively influences pain.
“Our findings demonstrate that the transdermal application of CBD oil can achieve a significant improvement in pain and other uncomfortable sensations in patients with peripheral neuropathic pain. The treatment of the product was well tolerated and can provide an effective alternative compared to current therapies that exist in the treatment of peripheral neuropathic pain. ”
No adverse events were reported in this study.
