CBD: A Primer


Cannabidiol, or “CBD,” is a plant-based chemical compound called a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are said to be able to interact with the body’s own endocannabinoid system, which controls functions like sleep, mood, hunger, and much more. CBD is thought to interact with receptors in the endocannabinoid system, and thereby deliver benefits to the body.

CBD is often confused with another popular cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol, or “THC,” which is the active cannabinoid in marijuana and is responsible for getting a user the euphoric “high” they feel when they use a marijuana product. Additionally, the manufacture and production of CBD was legalized federally in 2018 with the passing of the Farm Bill. As such, CBD products are now available on the market, however, each state has its own laws that govern the distribution and use of the products, so it is important to know what your particular state’s laws are so you know your CBD usage is in accordance with them.

CBD oil can be extracted in three different strengths; isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum. Isolate oil only contains CBD, with no other usable plant parts. Broad spectrum and full spectrum oils contain additional plant parts that give CBD additional health and wellness benefits.

In fact, full spectrum oil contains a trace amount of THC, less than .3% as allowable by law, which allows a full spectrum oil to produce the entourage effect. The entourage effect refers to the effect the oil has to deliver maximum benefit to the user because all usable parts of the hemp plant are working together synergistically. As such, full spectrum CBD oil will always net a user the most benefit, especially when it comes to pain relief.

How to Use CBD Oil for Acute Pain


Acute pain is pain that is occasional and does not last continually. Acute pain is usually the result of something like an injury, or illness. You can sustain acute pain from exercise in the form of muscle injury, or from a sickness in the form of a headache. CBD oil can be used to help alleviate acute pain. Here’s how.

As a muscle and joint pain cream. When CBD is applied topically, it can provide immediate, localized relief. QULCBD’s muscle and joint cream is specially formulated with 400mg of high quality, full spectrum CBD oil, arnica montana, capsicum, and menthol. This gives our cream the ability to deliver pain relief along with heating and cooling sensations that allow for a deeper feeling of comfort than other creams.

To use CBD oil muscle and join creams effectively, you should clean the affected area, and liberally apply the cream, massaging it into the skin until it is completely absorbed. Once you have massaged the cream completely into your skin, you should experience relief. If you do not, you can also add more, as CBD muscle and joint cream is buildable.

As a wellness tincture. Using CBD oil in tincture form allows you to soothe from the inside out. This can be great for things like headaches, backaches, and other types of localized pain. The fastest and most effective way to get the CBD oil into your bloodstream where it can work to help alleviate your pain and irritation is to take CBD in tincture form.

A tincture is a highly concentrated solution of CBD oil which has been dissolved into a carrier substance.

Using CBD oil for acute pain means you will only use CBD oil occasionally and not take it regularly, as you would a supplement. You can use it on an as-needed basis.

How to Use CBD Oil Regularly for Everyday Aches and Pains


CBD oil is a viable option for users who want to tackle every aches and pains on a regular, proactive basis, and support a calm, soothed musculoskeletal system.

In fact, in a 2016 study, CBD treatment significantly decreased the amount of pain experienced in test animals with joint pain. As such, CBD has been increasingly popular with people who want to find temporary relief for mild joint pain.

To use CBD oil regularly, you will likely need to take it in tincture form. Generalized aches and pains are best treated by tincture form, while localized, acute pain is better tackled with a cream. A CBD tincture is a great way to take CBD orally on a daily basis to temporarily soothe and alleviate pain and irritation from the inside out.

While other methods of taking CBD oil internally do exist, they are seldom the best option. For instance, CBD oil can be inhaled by vaping, but vaping has been linked to numerous lung-related injuries and illnesses, making it an unsafe option for most people. Edible CBD foods, like gummies, are also available, but they must pass through the digestive system, and when digestion happens, some of the CBD you have taken is broken down in the liver and lost for good.

Taking CBD oil with a fatty acid ensures that your CBD can bypass portions of the digestive system that break down CBD. QUL wellness tinctures are all formulated with MCT oil as the dissolving agent, allowing them to be better absorbed by your body. Thus, a user may take several doses of CBD tincture per day to properly help alleviate everyday aches and pains.

In Summary


Using CBD oil for pain management is an all-natural, holistic way to alleviate mild pain in the body. CBD can be used both topically and internally to manage pain and can be taken multiple times per day, depending on the amount of pain relief and management a user needs. The use of CBD for pain has been scientifically researched and is a respected method of pain relief in the holistic medical community.
