I developed plantar fasciitis in both feet due to running in poor quality shoes.
I ran anywhere from six to ten miles every day.
The sneakers didn’t provide proper support, and I failed to allow my feet time to recover from the repetitive and damaging impact. Research into plantar fasciitis led me to realize that rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are often involved in the generation of the symptoms. I also learned that CBD offers an effective treatment of chronic pain and inflammation in joints and tissues. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the active, natural compounds found in cannabis. It works by influencing CB1 and CB2 receptors that make up the body’s endocannabinoid system. The ECS is responsible for regulating essential functions such as pain, mood, sleep, appetite and more. The human body produces cannabinoids that work to activate and modulate the various functions. The cannabinoids of the cannabis plant can mimic the body’s cannabinoids and work in much the same way. The reason the bottom of my feet feel as if they are tearing with every step is due to inflammation of bands of connective tissue called “fascia.” CB1 and CB2 receptors are present in these tissues. I shop at the cannabis dispensary for products with a high CBD ratio. There are a wide assortment of medical cannabis options for treating pain and inflammation. I apply cannabis-infused ointments directly to the bottoms of my feet. I choose edibles for long-lasting and intensive effects. The pain-relieving properties of cannabis has made a huge difference for me. I’ve been able to combine this natural treatment with better exercise practices and heal my feet.
