CBD reduced pain in patients with myofascial pain in placebo controlled study
In a placebo-controlled study with 60 patients suffering from pain in the face topical CBD significantly reduced pain and muscle activity of the masseter, a face muscle.
Patients received either topical CBD to the face or a placebo. Pain intensity and muscle activity were measured on days 0 and 14. Pain reduction was 70% and 10% in the placebo group.
Authors concluded that “application of CBD formulation over masseter muscle reduced the activity of masseter muscles and improved the condition of masticatory muscles in patients with myofascial pain.”
