May 1, 2019
Ok. Tonight is your night. You're going out. You've got the dress- but most importantly- you've got the heels. Cut to three hours later: Heels are in your hands while you walk home a bit defeated by your perfect shoes. You've been there, I've been there, we've all been there.But, relief is just a lotion away.
Celebrities, aka permanent wearers of high heels, are now turning to CBD to relieve pain. Among its fans are Mandy Moore, who has said she uses CBD oil on her feet for heels at recommendation of her stylist, and Kristen Bell, who said in her Instagram stories that she uses CBD lotion to soothe sore muscles after a workout.
"the number one benefit of CBD I see in my patients is pain relief from aches, pains, and sprains," says Dr. Richard Firshein, leading expert in integrative and precision-based medicine and founder of Firshein Center. "I have found it useful for treating a number of painful syndromes, including heel and oot pain- a particular problem for those wearing high heels or uncomfortable shoes."
CBD,, the very buzzy beauty ingredient, is one of the more than 120 compounds isolated in the cannabinoid family and boasts the ability to relieve chronic inflammation and pain. CBD is also free from the side effects caused by many drugs available as treatment for people who suffer from these conditions. " A recent study in the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that CBD significantly impacted chronic inflammation and neuropathic pain in laboratory animals without causing the kind of tolerance that opioids generally do," explains Dr. Firshein. "CBD's primary mechanism of action is as an anti -inflammatory."
