It is a natural pain-relieving remedy that is sourced from vegetation from the earth that does not require a long list of warnings and cautions is


On many television commercials and in magazine advertisements for pharmaceutical products you can hear or read about the warnings of using some products which can range from a rash to any number of life-threatening adverse effects on your health. Although there are many advances in medicines that help to relieve pain from health issues that can occur, each person should find out what the reason is for the cause of their health problem, then decide which option is best for them.

On the website they mention the role of the FDA when it comes to approving medicines for the public. The article stated that,

“Before a drug can come on the market, the FDA must approve it. The New Drug Applications (NDAs) submitted by pharmaceutical companies have, first and foremost, evidence that the drug has the effect it’s supposed to have and is safe. This proof comes from testing the drug, first in animals and then in humans.”

When drugs are designed in a laboratory, they can be branded, trademarked and the company can be given a patent. With ingredients that grow on the Earth they are a natural resource for health.

There are a vast number of reasons why an illness can occur in some people and not in others. There also seems to be an increase in the number of preventable diseases and conditions, some that occur now in young children that decades ago use to be seen only in older adults. Providing your body with a proper diet and nutrition are vital in a person’s overall health.

The adage that “you are your own best doctor” refers to the idea that you will know what part of your body is in pain or what area is not working as it should.

There was an anecdote from years ago that referred to a situation like this,

“A man went to his doctor and told him that when he bends his wrist one way, he feels pain. The doctor looked at him and said, don’t bend your wrist like that.”

In retrospect, it is likely that each person is in a habit of doing something and over time the consequence can cause pain or harm to their body. A slight pinch or pulled muscle will be heated, iced, or a pill will be taken to relieve the discomfort, but eventually the body will give a final warning that you have gone too far and you need to change your routine. Recovery can be extended with prolonged pain.

Always, always, always research the cause of the problem. Often, there can be a simple solution to reduce the pain, inflammation and discomfort. Evaluate the way you sit, stand, walk, twist, type, or lift an item. Check the stability and comfort of your shoes. Corrective changes to your daily routine can help to relieve stress on your body. If a person does need to resort to a pain reliever, there is a natural remedy that you can explore.

In an article on they wrote that “In 2018, a farm bill passed that made the production of industrial hemp legal in the United States. This has opened doors for the legalization of the cannabis compound cannabidiol (CBD) — although you still need to check your local laws for legality in your area.”

In another article on they mention

“People take CBD products to help with everything from arthritis and Crohn's disease to diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Some say it helps with anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain. So far, there's little evidence that CBD helps with any of these. The FDA has approved one CBD-based drug. Epidiolex is a treatment for several severe forms of rare childhood epilepsy. CBD is a hot topic for researchers. The National Institutes of Health clinical trials database shows more than 160 trials involving CBD that are either active or recruiting.”

As mentioned previously with the FDA’s role in approving a pharmaceutical drug there must be an application submitted with evidence from tests performed. With naturally grown substances that have been around for thousands of years and used by humans wouldn’t this be enough evidence to at least substantiate the theory that there are herbal and holistic remedies?

There are plenty of articles that explain what hemp is and dispel any misconception about it. The truth about how it is beneficial and how it is classified is available.

One place to start is on where it describes Hemp.

In short, the legal Hemp or industrial hemp is a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant that contains high level of cannabidiol (CBD) with a low level of tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC) which is considered legal on the federal government level. The other well know Cannabis sativa plant that has a high level of THC and low level of CBD, that is considered illegal, is known as marijuana. The difference is clear enough that Hemp and products derived from hemp are considered legal.

According to the information on the FDA approved drug Epidiolex contains CBD and not THC.

A lengthy list of information on Epidiolex can be found on the website

The listed ingredients appear to be just, “a clear, colorless to yellow liquid containing cannabidiol at a concentration of 100 mg/mL. Inactive ingredients include dehydrated alcohol, sesame seed oil, strawberry flavor, and sucralose. EPIDIOLEX contains no ingredient made from a gluten-containing grain (wheat, barley, or rye).”

Always research any holistic and herbal remedies. If you are currently taking any prescribed medication consult with your physician to see if there are any concerns or conflicts with your medications.

The FDA stated in an article on their website that “they are working to find out more about Products Containing Cannabis or Cannabis-derived Compounds, Including CBD.”


If you’re looking for natural remedies and holistic herbs for pain relief, rather than using prescription medication or over-the-counter medicines, there are some CBD products you can try. One company that offers these alternative products is called JUSTCBD.

They have information on their website about the various products they offer and what they are used for. There are even some products available for cats and dogs. Click the "More Info" link below to see their products.
