Cannabidiol For Dental Pain

To begin with, if you are having dental pain, please see a qualified health professional as soon as possible. Assuming that is not possible at the moment, which has been the case for most of us from time to time, we have found that the over the counter gels for dental pain just don’t work very well.

I would have never really thought much about dental pain and CBD, but I have had approximately 8 patients who have contacted me with dental stories. None of these patients came in for help in relieving their dental issues. However, most of my patients use CBD extracts which are applied mostly oral-bucally. This apparently offers a rich CBD content to the dental nerves which are quickly effected by topical CBD in the mouth as the mucous membranes are so absorbable; this is the reason for applying it orally in the first place.

This interests me for two reasons:

1. It is a great help to patients with acute dental pain
2. This is ALMOST a “controlled” study, as the relief was in an area not discussed nor even thought about when the medicine was taken.

Maybe dentists should know more about this?

Cannabis May Prevent COVID-19 Infections

Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD's effect on COVID-19's ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.
