What is Tendonitis?
There are many thin fibrous tissues present in the human body named as Tendons. The main function of tendons is to connect muscles to different parts of the body such as bones and joints etc. Tendons play an essential role in the movement of the body by holding body structures in place. When these tendons become injured, inflamed, or deform due to irritation, this condition is known as Tendonitis. Tendonitis can be produced in almost all parts of the body, but it is more likely to develop in those areas which are subjected to frequent use. For example, elbows, wrists, and knees are more vulnerable to Tendonitis than other areas of the body. Injuries can also cause tendonitis. Commonly, the main cause of Tendonitis is the casual and repetitive movement of body parts. The ratio of development of Tendonitis is more in above 40-year people than young ones. Major signs and symptoms of Tendonitis include,
- Pain limbs and joints or other parts affected by Tendonitis.
- Dull Ache pain
- Mild swelling

CBD Oil is the chemical extract of hemp (cannabis) plant. It is completely non-psychoactive and non-toxic. In the recent past, people started to use CBD Oil for treating different physiological conditions such as pain, inflammation, and weight loss.
According to the data provided by research studies, CBD oil has the ability to reduce pain and inflammation caused by Tendonitis. So, in short words, we can use CBD Oil for Tendonitis. But the mechanism behind this effectiveness against Tendonitis. We will discuss a possible mechanism of treating Tenonitis by using CBD Oil. This mechanism is proven by research studies.
How does CBD Oil work for Tendonitis?
Before discussing the working of CBD Oil for Tendonitis, we would like to tell you that there is very little information available about the use of CBD Oil for the treatment of Tendonitis. According to some research studies, CBD oil can reduce the pain and inflammation in joints and limbs produced as the result of Tendonitis. CBD Oil does so by interacting with the Endocannabinoid system of the body. Endocannabinoids system regulates many important functions in the body such as maintaining homeostasis and ideal physiological state. The Endocannabinoid system is a network of neurotransmitters and receptors which is present in almost all parts of the body. Endocannabinoid has two main categories of receptors. CB1 Endocannabinoid receptors and CB2 Endocannabinoid receptors. CB1 receptors are responsible for memory, emotions, and learning while CB2 receptors are responsible for pain reception and inflammation production.
CBD Oil binds with these receptors, particularly with CB2 receptors and regulates them in such a way that these receptors start reducing inflammation and pain produced by Tendonitis. This interaction between CBD Oil and CB2 receptors is very useful for the body in alleviating the pain and inflammation in case of Tendonitis.
In severe type of Tendonitis, the patient can experience swelling and irritation of tendons. For treating this type of Tendonitis, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used. These anti-inflammatory drugs are not only expensive but there are many side effects also associated with them. CBD Oil is the best replacement for these drugs. CBD Oil has strong anti-inflammatory properties and it can alleviate inflammation by interacting with the Endocannabinoid system of the body.
