CBD for Chiropractors, Massage Therapists & Wellness Centers
The CBD revolution is growing exponentially, and people everywhere are starting to notice. Nowadays you can find CBD in creams, salves, tinctures, pills, foods, and even a latte at your local café!
Medical and wellness professionals are starting to jump on board. Chiropractors, massage therapists, yoga teachers and wellness center owners are becoming increasingly curious about how CBD may be able to help their clients and their business. We get many questions from alternative wellness practitioners, so we built this resource guide to help you learn more about CBD for chiropractors, massage therapists and other medical professionals.
Cannabidiol, more commonly referred to as CBD, is one of the active compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant. CBD, an endocannabinoid, can be found in all forms of cannabis, from medical marijuana to industrial grade hemp. Here at NuLife, our CBD comes from Colorado-grown hemp (see our industrial hemp vs marijuana page to learn more).
Unlike THC, the primary active compound in cannabis, CBD does not cause any sort of “high”. It’s non-psychoactive and non-intoxicating.
What CBD does do is help offer temporary relief from a wide range of symptoms. Many people have successfully used it to address pain, anxiety, inflammation, insomnia, poor appetite, and even seizures. Learn more here.
However, only CBD derived from hemp is legal to distribute outside of the medical marijuana system. Thankfully, all of NuLife’s products are derived from industrial grade hemp.
What CBD Can Do for Your Clients
If you’re a wellness practitioner, the wellbeing of your clients is surely paramount. You do all you can to ensure your clients live a happy, healthy life. How does CBD fit into the picture?
CBD’s primary functions are through its interaction with the endocannabinoid system, a newly discovered human physiological system that’s closely involved in several homeostatic and physiologic functions.
While researchers are still working to fully understand the endocannabinoid system, it’s thought to help regulate processes including:
- Pain perception
- Metabolism & thermoregulation
- Stress response
- Muscle movement
- Immune system responses
- Circulation & digestive processes
CBD itself is not subject to the same legal restrictions as other cannabis-derived products. In most states, it’s legal to sell CBD products directly to consumers, as they are considered a dietary supplement (see how the legality of CBD relates to the chiropractic business here).
In many cases, clients find that CBD can help them address many of the symptoms that alternative wellness practitioners aim to treat.
To be clear, CBD is no cure. It typically does little to address the root cause of the negative symptom. However, in some cases it can help significantly with symptom management.
In many cases, CBD pairs quite well with the skilled techniques of a chiropractor or massage therapist. While ongoing therapy can address the root cause of the patient’s discomfort, CBD can help manage the pain in the meantime.
CBD’s effects are temporary, typically lasting around 2-5+ hours. And since CBD is not intoxicating, clients can go about their everyday lives without feeling fatigue, mental cloudiness or other side effects.
All of the positive effects of CBD are thought to emerge from its interaction with the human endocannabinoid system. It’s thought to alter pain perception, stress response and other important factors. Typically these effects are fast-acting and short natured.
Interestingly, there is emerging research that suggests that in some cases, CBD may actually help reverse a deficiency in some people. Endocannabinoid deficiency is a relatively new concept, but researchers are exploring the possibility that some chronic subjective pain syndromes like migraines and fibromyalgia may be directly caused by a deficiency. In these cases, it’s possible that CBD supplementation could have positive and lasting effects on a client’s wellbeing.
Another big perk of CBD is that it is unlikely to cause significant side effects. Minor concerns like nausea and dry mouth are possible, but unlikely.
