Chinese medicine has made its way to the West with a widespread acceptance. It goes without saying, that the concept of a Tui Na Massage, Cupping, Chinese herbs and nutrition, Acupuncture, and Moxibustion no longer sound strange to American ears. People now willingly ask for needles to be poked into their skin for relief. In fact, there are an estimated 27,000 licensed practitioners of acupuncture in the USA alone, many working alongside conventional Western doctors in hospitals. As this ancient practice grows in popularity, incredible insights continue to be revealed. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has harnessed the power of hemp since long before Western modern medicine came into existence. In fact, medical texts reveal that the seeds and fiber from Cannabis sativa L. have had an important place in continuous remedial use for a staggering 1800 years! If you are a TCM practitioner, you may well be aware of this already. Growing research shows why this is so.
While the positive impacts of Chinese Medicine begin in the treatment room, at-home are is important to support this work. CBD CLINIC™’s evidence-based pain relief topicals help to continue the positive effects. The active pharmaceutical ingredients, camphor and menthol, provide a cooling and heating sensation to the skin while natural emollients like jojoba seed oil, CBD hemp oil from the Cannabis sativa L. hemp plant, and cottonseed oil nourish the skin. Camphor come from the wood of the camphor tree. This natural substance has antiseptic properties as well as analgesic properties. It helps alleviate pain by increasing cutaneous blood flow, resulting in cold and hot sensations that interrupt the pain signals in the brain. Similarly, menthol, a natural compound from the mint plant, has been proven to be an effective cutaneous vasodilator, making it an excellent synergistic partner with camphor as an effective analgesic. Additionally, we employ a handful of essential oils for added aromatherapy benefits that can benefit the Chinese Medicine practitioner’s sessions and lay users alike. Chinese medicine and CBD CLINIC™ Topicals form a powerful pain-relieving duo, without the complications and side effects potentially delivered by pharmaceutical agents. It’s no wonder this combination is such a favorite! (This bog is derived from CBD Clinic blog.)
