Written by: AtoZ Botanicals Staff



Time to read 11 min

Pain, the uninvited guest at life's gatherings, knows exactly when to make its presence felt—whether it's a nagging backache from years of dedication or a throbbing headache from life’s daily pressures. Traditional painkillers, while offering temporary relief, often come with a price: the risk of dependency and a list of side effects longer than a CVS receipt.

A natural alternative for pain management is possible- and within reach. CBD is the holistic medicine cabinet swap you can use for effective pain relief. It doesn’t just mask the pain; it gets to the heart of discomfort, addressing inflammation with a gentle touch. At AtoZ, we recognize that pain is deeply personal, which is why our CBD products are crafted to meet you right where you are. 

Our products are carefully formulated with unique blends of CBD, CBN, CBG, and terpenes, each crafted to specifically address different pain concerns.It’s about finding the right fit for you—because when it comes to relief, one size does not fit all.

Let’s take a look at the types of pain our specialized blends tackle. 

Which of these pain scenarios sounds familiar to you?

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is complex.

It’s usually defined as long lasting pain that persists for months or even years, “beyond the usual recovery period, or occurs along with a chronic health condition, such as arthritis. Chronic pain may be "on" and "off" or continuous.”

Chronic pain can arise from on-going health issues like arthritis, fibromyalgia, or migraines It may linger as a disappointing souvenir from an injury or surgery, even after the initial wound has healed.

Unlike acute pain, which acts like a warning sign for injury or illness, chronic pain may not have a clear trigger, a frustrating mystery woven into your daily life.

Chronic Pain feels like: 

  • Persistent aching, burning, stabbing, or throbbing in affected areas; an ever-present soreness, or sharp pangs that come and go unpredictably. 

  • The physical sensations of chronic pain vary widely.

  • This pain can lead to muscle tension, limited mobility, and a chronic state of physical unease that affects sleep, energy levels, and overall well-being.

  • Emotionally, chronic pain is deeply taxing, bringing about a fatigue that stems not just from the demanding discomfort, but also from the invisibility of the condition to others.

Best CBD product for Chronic Pain:

* Ultra-Pain Relief Drops

  • CBD/CBG 3500 mg

  • >5-10 pain scale

How it helps:

The CBD CBG combined with Organic MCT oil and two plant terpenes make for a simple formula that is a great starting point for relief of chronic pain.CBD/CBG get the pain under control while the plant terpenes bind with CB2 Receptor. The formula has effective has anti-inflammatory properties.

Neuropathic Pain

Neuropathic pain arises from damage or dysfunction within the nervous system itself, leading to pain signals being sent to the brain despite the absence of an external injury. It's as if the body's pain alarm system is malfunctioning, creating pain from the wires within, rather than from an actual threat.

The causes of neuropathic pain vary, including:

  • diabetes, which can lead to diabetic neuropathy, 

  • shingles, resulting in postherpetic neuralgia, or 

  • physical injuries that impact the nerves directly. 

Even diseases such as multiple sclerosis or treatments like chemotherapy can disrupt the normal function of nerves, leading to this complex type of pain.

Neuropathic Pain feels like:

  • Electric shocks without warning, burning sensations without a flame, or pinpricks with no apparent cause. 

  • It's a pain that's not only hard to explain but often hard to predict, flaring without warning. 

  • This uncertainty can be frustrating and isolating, especially when trying to explain the electric-like jolts or sudden tingles to someone who’s never experienced them.

"This is great. The topical rub begins working right away and helps so much with the pain. I am using the ultra pain relief as well and between the both of them I am getting more relief than I have had in years."

- Gale F.

Arthritic & Joint Pain:

Arthritic and joint pain encompass a range of conditions characterized by inflammation and discomfort in the joints, the critical points of movement within our bodies. This type of pain is not just a symptom but often a chronic condition that can significantly impact daily life and mobility.

The roots of arthritic pain are diverse, stemming from over 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions. Osteoarthritis, for example, arises from the wear and tear of cartilage, the body's natural cushioning between bones, leading to bones rubbing directly against each other. Rheumatoid arthritis, on the other hand, is an autoimmune condition where the body’s immune system attacks the lining of the joint capsule, causing inflammation and swelling. Other forms, like gout or lupus, have their unique triggers and effects but share the common thread of joint pain and inflammation.

Arthritis and Joint Pain feels like:

  • A dull ache or sharp pang that flares with movement. This makes activities that should be simple, like opening a jar or taking a walk, and transforms them into hurdles. 

  • It requires adapting your lifestyle to the many limitations that accompany arthritis.

  • *Ultra Pain-Relief Drops 3,500 mg

Migraine and Headache:

Both painful, but distinct experiences.

Headache is: 

  • A common, albeit, annoying pain in the head, scalp or neck. They tend to be less severe and more manageable than migraines.

  • Often triggered by:

    • Stress

    • Dehydration

    • Poor posture

    • Caffeine or alcohol

    • Sensory stimuli

    • Lack of sleep

    • Weather changes

Migraine is:

  • A neurological condition known for debilitating, “recurrent attacks of moderate to severe throbbing and pulsating pain on one side of the head.”

  • Migraines can last for hours or days and often come with nausea, vomiting, and major sensitivity to light and sound. 

  • The warning signs, known as aura, can include visual disturbances or tingling in the limbs. Migraines are more complex than regular headaches. 

Migraine feels like:

  • An all-consuming, pulsating pain that usually hammers on side of your head. It’s like your brain is clamped in a vice, tightening with every throb. Any light or sound is an assault to the senses. Nausea weaves through the pain and adds to the overwhelming desire to retreat to a dark, quiet place until it passes.

  • *Pain Relief Salve

  • The CBD Rub works by using deep penetration to offer immediate relief. 

Muscle Pain

Also known as myalgia, muscle pain is a common discomfort in the body’s soft tissues. It can be localized to one area or spread across large portions of the body, depending on the cause.

Common Causes:

  • Over exertion during physical activity

  • Tension or stress leading to muscle tightness

  • Injuries like strains or sprains

  • Medical conditions like fibromyalgia or infections

  • Lack of movement

  • dehydration

Muscle Pain feels like:

  • A dull ache that usually worsens with movement or touch. It can range from mild to severe pain that limits mobility. Affected muscles feel stiff, weak, or fatigued, with the pain coming after a workout or minor injury and can be accompanied by swelling or bruising.

  • For chronic conditions, the pain can be exhausting and a constant hindrance to daily life.

Best CBD product for muscle pain

  • *Pain Relief Drops

  • *CBD Body Oil

Cancer-Related Pain

Cancer-Related Pain caused by:

  • The cancer itself and the treatments used to fight it. The pain can come from a tumor pressing on bones, nerves, or organs.

  • Chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery can contribute to the pain due to the impact on the body’s tissues. Cancer can also cause pain by spreading to bones or leading to neuropathy (see neuropathy pain), where nerve damage triggers painful sensations.

Cancer pain feels like:

  • Experiencing cancer-related pain can vary significantly in intensity and quality, ranging from a dull ache to sharp or burning sensations.

  • It might feel like a constant pressure in one part of the body or a widespread pain that's hard to pinpoint.

  •  For some, the pain comes and goes, while for others, it's a persistent presence that affects every aspect of daily life.

  • It's not just the physical discomfort but also the emotional toll it takes, often amplifying feelings of anxiety and depression. For this reason, using our CBD Stress-Relief Drops or CBD Mood Boost Drops are an effective option to use in conjunction with the pain relief products. Understanding this pain involves recognizing its capacity to drain energy, diminish spirits, and fundamentally alter one's quality of life.

  • *Optimum Pain-Relief Drops

  • *CBD Ultra Pain Relief Rub

Menstrual Pain

Menstrual pain, also known as dysmenorrhea, involves cramps and discomfort in the lower belly during a period. It's caused by the uterus squeezing to shed its lining, with the process kicked into high gear by substances in the body called prostaglandins. The more of these you have, the stronger the cramps can be. Sometimes, conditions like endometriosis or uterine fibroids elevate this pain, making it even harder to bear.

Menstrual pain feels like:

A deep, pulsing ache in your lower belly that rolls in with your menstrual cycle. This pain can range from a nagging discomfort to a fierce, all-consuming cramp that spreads to your back and thighs. It often brings along unwelcome guests like nausea and headaches, making you feel pretty lousy all over. To someone who's never had it, think of it as a relentless, tightening squeeze in your lower belly that just won't let up, turning even small tasks into big challenges.

Best CBD for Menstrual related pain

  • *Pain relief drops

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Pain:

  • MS is an autoimmune disease where the immune system mistakenly attacks the protective sheath (myelin) of nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord, leading to communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body.

MS Pain is caused by:

  • The nerves losing their myelin sheath, making them more sensitive to pain signals. It can also stem from muscle stiffness or spasms (spasticity), common in MS, which strain and tire the muscles. Furthermore, the effort to compensate for changes in mobility can lead to pain in unaffected parts of the body, adding layers to the discomfort experienced.

MS Pain feels like:


  • A mix of sharp, stabbing sensations, deep-seated aches, or sudden shocks running through the limbs, often without warning. Muscle stiffness and spasms can cause a constant, painful tightness, particularly in the legs. Imagine the feeling of sudden electric zaps or the ache of overworked muscles, combined with the frustration of not knowing when they'll strike. It's a challenging aspect of MS, creating a sense of unpredictability and often contributing to fatigue, as managing this pain demands a significant amount of energy and resilience.

Best CBD product for MS Pain:

 *Optimum Pain-Relief Drops

Post-Surgery Pain

  • Post-surgery pain is the discomfort and pain experienced after undergoing surgical procedures, a natural part of the healing process. This type of pain varies in intensity and duration depending on the nature of the surgery, the individual's pain tolerance, and the healing process. 

  • Common surgeries with post-op pain:
    • Major orthopedic surgeries like hip or knee replacements,
    • Abdominal surgeries such as gallbladder removal or hernia repair, 
    • Surgeries involving sensitive areas like the spine or chest.

Feels like:

  • sharp or intense ache around the surgical site, which can also be accompanied by throbbing, burning, or stabbing sensations. The area may feel tender or sensitive, making movements that involve or affect the surgical site particularly painful. This pain can lead to feelings of fatigue due to disturbed sleep and a reduced ability to participate in daily activities or rehabilitation exercises.

Best CBD Product for post-surgery pain

  • *Optimum Pain Relief Drops

How it helps:

CBD affects a class of molecules important to the inflammation process called Cytokines. CBD reduces the effects of Pro-Inflammatory Cytokines, thereby reducing inflammation.

"I just wanted to say thank you for your help. I just had my knee replaced 41/2 months ago and the swelling was not going down. You suggested I take the 3,000 mg of the drops ( very tasty)( for inflammation) . Within two weeks the swelling is gone, I went to my doctor for a check up and he could not believe how normal my knee looked. Thank you so much for changing my life Your products are awesome ."

  • Common Autoimmune disorders that cause pain:

    • Lupus
    • Multiple sclerosis (MS)

  • These conditions lead to a range of painful sensations due to the inflammation and damage inflicted on various parts of the body.
