Cannabis and Pain<p>For more than <a href="https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/67/wr/mm6736a2.htm" target="_blank">20 percent of Americans</a>, chronic pain is part of daily life. Many <a href="https://www.healthline.com/health-news/america-is-losing-the-war-on-chronic-pain" target="_blank">aren't getting the relief</a> they need.</p><p>Pain treatments have been typically limited to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and opioid medications, which carry the risk of addiction. Both have risks of side effects. With opioids frequently in the headlines, many people with chronic pain can't get access to the medication they depend on to get through the day without intense pain.</p><p>As a possible alternative to long-term opioid use for chronic pain, many people are turning to cannabis. Cannabis has a long history of medical use and is especially effective in the treatment of pain.</p><p><a href="https://www.healthline.com/health/your-cbd-guide" target="_blank">Cannabidiol (CBD)</a> has gained mainstream attention for its effectiveness in treating a number of conditions including pain, both acute and chronic.</p><p><strong>Combining CBD and THC</strong></p><p><strong></strong>In states where medical marijuana is legal, a combination of CBD and THC can be used for pain to great effect, and is more potent than when CBD is used alone. The complementary nature of the compounds is known as the entourage effect.</p>

Like many other plant-based foods and products, CBD oil is one dietary supplement where "organic" labels are very important to consumers. However, there are little to no regulations within the hemp industry when it comes to deeming a product as organic, which makes it increasingly difficult for shoppers to find the best CBD oil products available on the market.

The company is currently in the process of achieving official USDA Organic Certification, but it already practices organic and sustainable cultivation techniques to enhance the overall health of the soil and the hemp plants themselves, which creates some of the highest quality CBD extracts. Charlotte's Web offers CBD oils in a range of different concentration options, and some even come in a few flavor options such as chocolate mint, orange blossom, and lemon twist.</p>
