Sciatica refers to pain that runs along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from the lower back and extends through the hips to the legs.
This pain is usually accompanied by a numbness, weakness and tingling that can interfere with regular movements and create general discomfort.
While sciatica is usually temporary (lasting 4-6 weeks), in some cases it can last longer - and as with all forms of sustained pain, it often severely impacts general happiness and wellbeing.
Luckily CBD can serve as an effective treatment option, and offer a natural alternative to opioids and other painkillers.
By decreasing the body's sensitivity to pain and reducing inflammation in the affected areas, both CBD topical products like our Dr Kerklaan Pain Cream and ingestible products like our drops & sachets can provide sciatica sufferers with the relief they require.
At the same time it can also help to elevate the mood of anyone struggling with the condition, and assist them in getting the sleep they might be missing out on as a result of it.
