Medical CBD Q & A

What is medical CBD?

Medical CBD is a form of cannabidiol that can help relieve pain, reduce anxiety, and promote relaxation. CBD also has anti-inflammatory properties that may help patients with arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. 

Recent studies show that medical CBD can help chronic pain patients reduce their dependence on opioids and potentially addictive pain medications.

What conditions can medical CBD treat?

Medical CBD is an effective treatment to reduce the symptoms of:


Arthritis causes chronic joint inflammation from damaged cartilage (osteoarthritis) or poor immune function (rheumatoid arthritis). 


Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes widespread musculoskeletal pain. Though fibromyalgia has no known cause, researchers believe a miscommunication in how your brain processes pain signals may be the culprit.

Peripheral neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy — nerve damage that affects the hands and feet — is a common symptom of Type 2 diabetes.


Lupus is an autoimmune disease that, like fibromyalgia, can lead to widespread inflammation. CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties may help relieve lupus pain by reducing inflammation.

Are there different types of medical CBD?

Many types of medical CBD can alleviate pain, including:

CBD isolate

CBD isolate only contains the CBD compound in the marijuana plant. It doesn’t include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in cannabis.

Full spectrum

Full spectrum products contain all aspects of the marijuana plant, including CBD, THC, and cannabigerol (CBG).

Broad spectrum

Like full spectrum products, broad spectrum CBD includes all components of the marijuana plant but with much less THC.

Many of these products are available in capsule, oil, edible, and oral spray form. After a comprehensive physical exam, medical history review, and discussion of your symptoms, your pain specialist at Healthcare Pain Centers LLC can determine the best type of CBD for you. 

What are the benefits of medical CBD?

CBD offers many benefits without the negative side effects that often accompany prescription painkillers, like opioids. In many chronic pain patients, CBD can help:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Relieve pain signals
  • Promote sleep
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Improve mood
  • Enhance immune response
