How Cannabinoids Help Release Tight Fascia

How Cannabinoids Help Release Tight Fascia

How Cannabinoids Work in Your Body

CBD and THC are both considered cannabinoids. Meaning, they regulate how cells communicate with each other by binding to specific receptors within your central nervous system. The cells to which they bind are part of the endocannabinoid system (inner-cannabinoid). The molecules of CBD and THC are the ligands that fit into the receptors of this system and cause change.

Through this communication system, cannabinoids help regulate different processes throughout your body – sleep, mood, appetite, memory, and more. The endocannabinoid system is found throughout the body and its receptors are some of the most plentiful.

Cannabinoids aren’t a foreign substance in your body that’s only introduced through use of THC or CBD. As described, your body produces its own, referred to as endocannabinoids. 

These naturally occurring endocannabinoids work within your central nervous system through CB1 receptors, and in your peripheral nervous system through CB2 receptors. The receptors they bind is contingent on where they’re located in the body. There are other types of receptors involved, but the CB1 and CB2 are the most important to discuss here.

When the Endocannabinoid System is at work within your body, it’s linked to appetite, metabolism, reducing chronic pain, reducing inflammation, mood, learning and memory, motor control, sleep, bone growth and development, liver function, reproductive system, stress, and so much more.

Its influence throughout your entire body makes it a critical system in improving your health.

Cannabinoids Work With Fascia and Other Connective Tissue

So what do cannabinoids or endocannabinoids have to do with fascia?

Your fascia, as part of your connective tissue, is located throughout your entire body. It’s the casing that holds your organs, blood vessels, nerve fiber, and muscles into place. Fascia links us in long lines from head to toe. It also links us together from inside to outside. Then, there are various other connections in the planes between.

You can experience fascia pain when your hyaluronan dries up or decreases. Hyaluronan is the in-between substance that works between your layers of fascia to keep everything running smoothly. It is actually hyaluronic acid (HA), a molecule that retains moisture. The amount of moisture retained depends upon the molecular weight of that particular HA molecule.

When your fascia seizes up as a result of hyaluronan loss, it can cause muscle tightness, make it harder for you to move, or create knots. This is a source of what is called “myofascial” pain.

If you’re not physically active, you use the same parts of your body over and over again without rest, or you have surgery or an injury that damages one part of your body, you’re at risk for fascia pain. Actually, just the normal American lifestyle of chronic inflammation and oxidative stress will cause damage to fascia. Oftentimes, fascia pain is mistaken for muscle or joint pain because of its connection to the rest of your body.

If homeostasis is disrupted – your body’s endocannabinoids get to work. But, over time, endocannabinoids break down, or maybe your body isn’t able to produce enough to maintain these functions or provide pain relief.

That’s when cannabinoids like THC and CBD are able to help. THC binds to the receptors in your nervous system like endocannabinoids, providing a supplementation to your body’s naturally occurring processes.

Some studies show an increase in hyaluronan production and health from exposure to cannabinoids. Which can help release the tension and tightness associated with a loss of hyaluronan. Likewise, the pain signals to the brain from fascia with problems might be reduced by the cannabinoids’ effects on the nervous system.

Well Theory's CBD & Delta-8 THC

Dr. Warner has created several different THC and CBD supplements to help you find relief from fascia pain.

For topical solutions, you have the Delta-8 THC Cream that combines the powerful effects of Delta-8 THC with menthol and arnica. It provides a fast-acting pain relief that lowers inflammation and introduces cannabinoids right at the source.

 

The CBD Pain Relief Cream includes full-spectrum CBD, lidocaine, and menthol as its primary ingredients. It also targets your pain at the source in order to provide relief from aches, joint stiffness, or discomfort.

 

If you want daily support from CBD, Dr. Warner’s CBD Multivitamin is a great option – providing the pain-relieving effects of CBD with a spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals your body needs to keep functioning at its best. This multi was originally designed to support healing after surgery and the properties of the product will assist with connective tissue health.

 

CBD Softgels and CBD Oil is available for those who want to keep it simple with a single ingredient. The softgels are tasteless, while both forms promote easier and quicker digestion.

 

If you’d prefer your CBD or THC in a gummy – look no further than the Sleep + Repair Gummy that encourages wellness while you sleep.

 

The Delta-8 THC Gummy should also be taken toward the end of the day, or when you know you won’t be leaving the house again. Its inclusion of Delta-8 does have the potential to create a sense of euphoria that’s best practiced at home and not behind the wheel.

So, if you’re looking for fascia pain relief from CBD or THC – the question isn’t whether or not Well Theory provides options, but which supplement you’re going to choose. .

“Anyone on statins should also be on CoQ10, in my opinion.”

Statins like Crestor are prescribed to reduce cholesterol levels. However, one of the side effects is muscle pain – cramping, aching, and more.

CoQ10 is an antioxidant and a mandatory part of the electron transport chain. It’s extremely important for capturing electrons before they damage the cell membrane. Since statins interrupt the same pathways that form “bad” cholesterol and interrupt the production of your body’s natural antioxidants that use the same pathways, CoQ10 is a great way to bring your antioxidant levels up to optimal levels, reducing muscle pain.

Natural Supplements For Plantar Fasciitis Pain

Natural Supplements For Plantar Fasciitis Pain

More and more people who suffer from plantar fasciitis are seeking natural methods to manage their pain. Here is a list of supplements Dr. Meredith Warner and many other physicians will often recommend to their patients.

Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA)

PEA is a natural anti-inflammatory that is naturally produced inside the human body to regulate pain and inflammation within the endocannabinoid system. PEA is a natural fatty acid molecule produced in response to injury. Studies have found that PEA has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and neuroprotective benefits. PEA is a great alternative to NSAIDs as it does not have any known side effects unlike those seen in NSAIDs.

CBD

CBD much like PEA acts in the same manner inside of the body’s endocannabinoid system to regulate pain and inflammation. More and more medical professionals are beginning to recommend CBD to their patients as an alternative to traditional over-the-counter NSAIDs and prescription pain killers including opioids like oxycodone, hydrocodone, etc.

Calcium

Daily intake of calcium can help prevent heel spurs from developing. Heel spurs are often seen in association with plantar fasciitis when calcium deposits form on the area of the heel bone that attaches to the plantar fascia. Heel spurs often develop due to microtears and inflammation caused by overuse and stress on the plantar fascia.

Magnesium

Magnesium is required to be taken in conjunction with calcium to assist in proper absorption.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C can significantly reduce the symptoms of plantar fasciitis by reducing inflammatory responses by lowering the amounts of C-reactive proteins. C-reactive proteins are produced in the liver and released into the bloodstream to respond to inflammation.

Turmeric

Turmeric and its active compound curcumin are natural anti-inflammatories that have been used for centuries in western herbal medicine. Modern studies have shown turmeric is comparable to over-the-counter pain killers.

Well Theory’s Supplements And Multivitamins

Dr. Warner offers a variety of supplements, multivitamins, and topicals that are great options to help manage plantar fasciitis pain.

  • PEA Supplement
  • Daily Multivitamin with PEA, Calcium, Magnesium, and Vitamin C
  • Pain Relief Cream with PEA, Turmeric, Menthol, and more
  • Foot Pain Cream with PEA, Menthol, and Lidocaine

Alpha-Lipoic Acid is great for antioxidant support and relieving symptoms of nerve pain – but it’s also a great supplement for natural, sustainable weight management. 

Chronic inflammation can inhibit your hormones, metabolism, and lead to leptin resistance – your body’s hormone for weight management. ALA helps to reduce inflammation throughout the body. It’s also a great energy booster, since it has the unique ability to travel within cells to deliver antioxidant benefits to your mitochondria – freeing them up to help you feel energized and active.

Total Nervous System + Cellular Support

ALA is a simple daily supplement that should be a staple in your wellness routine. It’s a powerhouse supplement that helps reduce inflammation and neuropathic pain by increasing antioxidant intake and promoting improved cell function.

ALA is unique because it supports your body’s natural free radical scavenging systems and can also recycle the antioxidant vitamins C and E, extending their function.

Natural Supplements For Muscle Fatigue

Natural Supplements For Muscle Fatigue

During exercise and training, we put our bodies through many stresses. We are putting our muscles through their paces and leaving them tired at the end of a workout. Whether you are lifting weight, walking, running, or doing yoga, your muscles are going to be fatigued when you are done.

Today we are going to talk about natural supplements that can help you with muscle fatigue.

What Is Muscle Fatigue

Muscle fatigue occurs after repetitive movements. As muscle fatigue grows, you start to feel weaker. Muscle fatigue usually follows after strenuous activity or exercise, but it can also present itself as a symptom of other health conditions.

Muscle fatigue can leave you short of breath and you may be in pain with muscle soreness, twitching, and cramps. Your feet and calves might cramp. You may find that you have a weak grip as well.

Supplements That Combat Muscle Fatigue

COQ10

The human body naturally produces Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) inside your mitochondria to help generate energy in your cells. It helps the body create adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a molecule found in the cell that provides usable energy. Coenzyme Q10 is integral to the proper function of the electron transport chain that actually produces the ATP molecule. Supplementing with CoQ10 can boost your body’s ability to store and generate energy keeping muscle fatigue at bay longer. In addition, CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant and this will help reduce painful symptoms due to the damaging effects of free radicals produced during muscle exertion.

ALCAR

Acetyl-L-carnitine is an amino acid that plays a crucial role in energy production by bringing fatty acids into the cells’ mitochondria. Mitochondria burns these fats to make usable energy. Alcar will increase the ability of the mitochondria to utilize oxygen and this allows for more efficient energy production. ALCAR is formed naturally in the body by the enzymatic addition of an acetyl group to carnitine (an amino acid). ALCAR offers natural protection from oxidative stress and is able to scavenge free radicals.

L-carnitine is most commonly supplemented in the form of acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR) and can increase oxygen supply to the muscles and reduce fatigue after exercise. ALCAR and ALA (alpha-lipoic-acid) are considered age-essential micronutrients. There is decent evidence that supplementing with ALCAR can assist with cognitive function in neurodegenerative disorders. ALCAR has even been known to be helpful in the treatment of depression associated with age. ALCAR also assists the body in reducing pain from neuropathy. Finally, it is thought that ALCAR may also help with the low-energy status of those suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome.

TURMERIC AND PIPERINE

Turmeric and its active compound curcumin have anti-inflammatory properties that can improve recovery from muscle fatigue. Curcumin reduces inflammation and oxidative stress in turn reducing pain and muscle damage. Specifically, turmeric can lessen the levels of TNF-alpha which is highly pro-inflammatory and associated with pain. Turmeric is not easily absorbed in the body. Taking it along with piperine (black pepper extract) will increase the bioactivity of the turmeric boosting bioavailability rates. It is also recommended to take turmeric with a food or beverage with some fat content to assist absorption.

OMEGA 3S

Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to fight inflammation and reduce pain levels. When omega-3 fatty acids populate the cell membrane the body is able to regulate inflammation better. There is less of a damaging response to injury or stress and more of a resolving or healing response by way of the intermediate products made from Omega-3. On the other hand, with too much Omega-6 and too little Omega-3, the products produced during a response to injury, infection or stress are highly inflammatory and damaging. It is therefore important to follow a diet or lifestyle rich in Omega-3s and to supplement with them as well.

GINSENG

Ginseng is a great supplement for physical endurance and performance because as an adaptogen it is able to strengthen the body and increase resistance to daily stress. Ginseng has been used for thousands of years for a multitude of reasons. It has most often been used to boost mental clarity, strengthen the immune system, and fight fatigue.

B VITAMINS

B vitamins are essential in order for carbohydrates, fats, and proteins to transform into energy after we eat them. B vitamins are integral to the function of DNA and also to nerve and brain health. When exercising the body uses up B-vitamins which leads to muscle fatigue. By supplementing with B-vitamins you replenish your body and avoid post-workout fatigue. B vitamins will block pain signals from the tired muscles. Also, B vitamins, especially B6 and B12 will reduce levels of the inflammatory marker homocysteine.

The Science Behind Our Pain Relief + Recovery Cream

The Science Behind Our Pain Relief + Muscle Recovery Cream

We take pride in offering the latest formulations that combine natural healing traditions with clinically tested medical ingredients. Our founder, Dr. Warner, is an orthopedic surgeon who believes in taking an integrative approach to health and wellness. She wants the individual to improve and restore their health in multiple interconnected – as naturally as possible.  

All of our products are developed with this unique methodology in mind, and today we’re looking at the science behind our Pain Relief + Recovery Cream.

Behind The Ingredients

Our Pain Relief + Recovery Cream is an extra-strength, full-body option for fast and lasting pain relief. It targets tight and dysfunctional myofascial regions that lead to pain and movement problems.

This is an ideal option for those who are active and want to stay that way. Its soothing ingredients help fight stiffness, pain, and inflammation so you can recover faster and return to the activities you love.

Here’s how they work together for your benefit:

PEA (palmitoylethanolamide)

It calms pain and sensitivity when massaged into the affected area. Its anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving properties encourage fast-acting, natural recovery from muscle, joint, and ligament pain. This is a naturally occurring molecule that is well-known to reduce inflammation around nerves and in muscles.

Menthol Crystals

Menthol cools on contact to alleviate sensitivity, reduce joint and muscle pain, and calm skin irritation. Menthol has also been shown to help hydrate the skin and lessen the appearance of dark spots. Menthol is a great natural remedy for the sensation of pain.

Turmeric (curcumin)

When used topically, turmeric can aid in healing your skin. It helps diminish the appearance of surface-level scarring and can even assist in wound healing - thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Essential Oil Blend

This blend of essential oils includes Peppermint, Frankincense, Bergamot, and Wintergreen. These oils relieve pain, muscle spasms, inflammation, and skin irritation, and they also offer aroma-therapeutic properties.

Rosehip Oil

When applied to the skin, rosehip oil hydrates the skin, lightens scars and imperfections, and provides antioxidant protection to the skin to block free radicals. Free radicals can damage virtually every cell in your body if left unchecked - so you want to make sure you’re adding antioxidants to all of your daily routines.

A Convenient Option For Daily Recovery

and what you need to look for

Our Pain Relief + Recovery Cream can be used anywhere you’re experiencing pain, inflammation, joint stiffness, or muscle soreness. 

This formulation is perfect for daily use – simply spread a thin layer wherever you need it most, for fast, natural relief that lasts.
