Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a neurological disorder characterised by an irresistible urge to move the legs, often accompanied by uncomfortable sensations. While there is limited research specifically on the use of Caryophyllene (BCP) for RLS, it is suggested that its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties may help alleviate some of the symptoms of RLS. Often, there’s no known cause for RLS. The Mayo Clinic says that some researchers suspect the condition may be caused by an imbalance of the brain chemical dopamine, which sends messages to control muscle movement. So it really is one of those conditions where you just have to try and find something that works for you.
That’s why it was very encouraging to receive this great review from Blaine, sharing how Canna Oils BCP helped with his restless legs.
“My mum originally got this oil for me to see if it’d help my restless legs syndrome. Not only does it help soothe them (only thing that’s ever worked) but it has also helped me and my partner with anxiety and pain relief.
I’ve now bought the bigger bottle on subscription. Very thankful”
How good is that?!
It’s important to note that RLS is a complex disorder with many potential underlying causes, and treatment typically involves a combination of lifestyle changes and other interventions. Reducing caffeine and alcohol, applying hot and cold presses as well as stretching and massage are known to be helpful.
So there’s not a lot to share today due to the lack of targeted research, but I thought it was worth a quick mention as we often get asked if Canna Oils BCP can help with RLS. So in conclusion, because BCP has been known to potentially assist with neurological disorders and has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, it definitely would be worth a try.
If you have had relief with RLS, please let us know – your feedback really helps.
Have a wonderful Easter everyone!
