Got Pain? A CBD product for gamers
Got Pain? is a CBD isolate topical cream for the purpose of decreasing pain associated with gaming. The mechanism of action is via indirect action of the endocannabinoid system which promotes cellular and systemic homeostasis.
Since CBD prevents the breakdown of endocannabinoids, more significant benefits may be noted in areas of your body where endocannabinoids are in higher concentration.
The endocannabinoid concentration of your skin is 5-10x greater than the concentration in your brain. Thus, topical application of CBD can be highly beneficial to the endocannabinoid system in the skin and superficial layers of tissue including fascia, muscles, tendons, and nerves.
What to expect when using Got Pain?
Got Pain? has a natural, earthy scent from the herbs present in the non-active ingredients. These herbs include chamomile extract, olive leaf extract, rosemary extract, beeswax, wintergreen oil, and green tea leaf extract.
For a full list of ingredients, refer to the Got Pain? product page here. Prior to use of Got Pain?, consult your doctor. Additionally, you must be sure you are not allergic to any of its ingredients.
Got Pain? has a soothing sensation on your skin and is not overly greasy. However, being a product will many oils in the ingredients, Got Pain? will not leave your skin feeling completely oil-free.
Of course, as the name implies, you are most likely to experience relief of pain from common injuries/ailments experienced by gamers.
Reducing pain in common gaming injuries
The enhancement of endocannabinoids may aid in decreasing pain associated with mechanical strain (tendinosis strains), nerve impingement, or tendon sheath inflammation—three common types of injuries suffered by gamers.
- Mouse elbow: an overuse tendinosis of the common extensor tendon, usually causing pain and discomfort on the outside (thumb side) of the elbow
- Mouse shoulder: an overuse tendinosis of the proximal biceps tendon, usually causing pain and discomfort on the front of the shoulder
- Medial epicondylosis: an overuse tendinosis of the common flexor tendon, usually causing pain and discomfort on the inside (pinky side) of the elbow
- Cubital tunnel syndrome: a nerve impingement syndrome at the elbow, usually causing numbness, tingling, and weakness on the pinky side of the forearm and hand as well as the pinky finger and ring finger (the “funny bone” sensation)
- Carpal tunnel syndrome: a nerve impingement syndrome at the wrist, usually causing numbness, tingling, and/or weakness in the thumb side of the hand as well as the thumb, index, and middle finger
Tendon sheath inflammation
- Gamer’s thumb: an inflammatory overuse syndrome of the tendon sheaths of the thumb, usually causing pain and discomfort on the outside (thumb side) of the wrist and forearm
For tendon sheath inflammation, Got Pain? CBD topical cream may be effective in decreasing the inflammatory process. Likewise, if nerve impingement is caused by inflammation, Got Pain? may be useful to counter that pathophysiology.
Other potential benefits of Got Pain?
Cannabinoids such as CBD may have a beneficial effect on skin tumors. Activation of the cannabinoid receptors present in the skin have been shown to modulate growth, proliferation, and differentiation of certain tumor cells, including those of both melanoma and non-melanoma.
Furthermore, CBD’s role in the endocannabinoid system may reduce the differentiation, angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation within the cancerous growth), and metastasis (spreading to another body tissue or organ system).
Got Pain? may also be useful for unbroken skin irritations such as scrapes, non-allergic irritation, or burns (including sun burn). The activation of CBD receptors can aid in the reduction of pain associated with these irritations and may play an active role in a more rapid recovery.
Note: DO NOT use Got Pain? on open skin lesions; sores; rashes, hives, or other allergic reactions; skin growths, or any other wounds. For these concerns, consult your doctor.
