Blackhouse's ReLeaf Roll-On: The Possibilities Of Natural Pain Relief

Updated: Feb 19

Blackhouse Botanicals ReLeaf Roll-On

Topical CBD for natural pain relief.

We all know that long-term use of NSAIDs, Opioids, and other prescription painkillers is not a healthy or sustainable solution to pain. That's where natural pain relief comes in. The average usage of topical CBD for natural pain relief has shown a decrease in opioid usage and an overall average decrease of 3.5 points (0-10) on the pain index scale. We think our roll-on does much better.

Studies of topical CBD for natural pain relief show great promise in assisting with many other ailments as well. The well-known and documented anti-inflammatory action many cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, and THC possess may bring relief to patients experiencing anything from mild allergic reactions to lupus and more.

Why does topical CBD work for natural pain relief?

Since CB1 and CB2 receptors (the receptors that cannabinoids like) are found extensively throughout the skin lipophilic molecules such as those in CBD skin care products and other CBD topical compounds pass right through. This works because the cannabinoid receptors are embedded in all layers of the skin, including the upper epidermis (surface) layer, so cannabinoids don't have to penetrate far to be effective. Using other known beneficial compounds, such as essential oils, can assist in this pass-through naturally without causing any side effects. This is why so many people (17% of adult cannabis users in Canada based on surveys done 2017-2020) use topical applications containing cannabinoids for natural pain relief and minor ailments. Online CBD topical sales have increased 100-fold per year since 2018.

Another exciting aspect of topical CBD regarding natural pain relief is its effect on dermal and epidermal opioid receptors. Now, we know that cannabinoids don't act on opioid receptors in the body like morphine or other opium-related compounds. Still, when put on the skin, they register a natural reaction from the body to turn these receptors on and control the management of pain (also called nociception) internally. Even those with intractable pain discussed in recently published studies ( links are below), topically applied cannabis extracts show a practical and measured difference for natural pain relief compared to no use. Topical CBD is part of the widening future of natural pain relief through the direct interaction with CB1 and CB2 receptors or indirect interaction through TRP ion channels.

Topical CBD may be more than natural pain relief.

The range of ailments beyond natural pain relief that topical cannabinoid studies have given us information on is vast and promising, from CBD for acne, psoriasis, pruritus, and dermatitis to more severe conditions such as scleroderma, dermatomyositis (skin and muscle inflammation), cutaneous lupus erythematosus (skin diseases related to lupus), epidermolysis bullosa (fragile, blistering skin), general pain, skin cancer, and wound healing/closure. Through the CB1 and CB2 receptors and TRP ion channels, cannabinoids (specifically THC and CBD) have been shown to affect the growth, proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis of keratinocytes (keratin-creating cells), melanocytes (melanin-forming cell), adnexal structures (ovary and uterine cells), and fibroblasts (creates extracellular matrix and collagen). This all means the overall effect of CBD for skin homeostasis supports a considerable therapeutic dermatological potential beyond natural pain relief.

Although studies are still being conducted, the evidence and information being put out by clinical small-scale testing are extremely promising. Due to what we've learned about the botanical applications of many different plant species, we have a window into the final result of all that we'll learn from the topical application of CBD.
