It affects men of all ages, but tends to be more common in men aged 50 and under. Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate that can cause pain and difficulty urinating, among other symptoms. There are different types of prostatitis, and treatment can vary depending on the underlying cause.
According to the International Society of Urology classification, there are four main types of prostatitis: acute bacterial prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis, chronic non-bacterial prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome and asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis.
What is prostatitis?
Prostatitis and prostate problems are mainly caused by bacteria that can enter the prostate through the urethra. Infection can start when bacteria carried in urine leak into the prostate. Other causes may be immune system disorders. Such as a nervous system disorder or injury to the prostate area or the prostate itself.
Prostatitis, often described as an infection of the prostate, is the swelling and inflammation of the prostate gland, a walnut-sized gland located just below the bladder in men. The prostate gland produces the fluid (semen) that nourishes and transports sperm. Prostatitis is annoying to the point of causing pain or difficulty urinating.
Acute bacterial prostatitis is caused by an acute bacterial infection in the prostate and manifests with intense symptoms such as fever, chills, pain in the perineal area, difficulty urinating and pain on ejaculation. Diagnosis is made by urinalysis and prostate culture.
Chronic bacterial prostatitis is characterised by a chronic bacterial infection in the prostate, which may cause symptoms similar to acute bacterial prostatitis but less severe. Diagnosis is made by prostate culture and antibiotic treatment.
Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome is the most common form of prostatitis, and is characterised by symptoms such as pain in the perineal area, difficulty urinating, pain on ejaculation and pain during intercourse. Although its exact cause is unclear, it has been linked to factors such as stress, anxiety and mental health problems. Diagnosis is made by exclusion of other causes and treatment with medication to relieve symptoms.
Asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis is characterised by inflammation of the prostate without apparent symptoms. It is diagnosed by urinalysis and prostate culture.
First of all, what is CBD?
Prostatitis can be relieved by Cannabidiol (CBD).
We have a whole page* explaining what CBD is and how to buy CBD Oil.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. It is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, along with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive compound that causes the feeling of “euphoria” or “high”.
Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause a ‘high’ sensation. Instead, it is believed to have several beneficial health effects, such as reducing inflammation, relieving pain, reducing anxiety and improving sleep.
In short, CBD is a natural, non-addictive compound with great potential in natural and therapeutic medicine. Today, research on the multiple benefits of CBD in improving the ailments of various diseases is encouraging. It is important to note that the legality of CBD varies from country to country and region to region. In some places, CBD is considered a controlled substance and can only be used for medical purposes under medical supervision. In other places, CBD can be purchased and consumed without a prescription.
How can CBD help with prostatitis?
The level of pain experienced by a person suffering from prostatitis can be debilitating and affect their ability to work and enjoy life. Traditional painkillers can relieve pain, but they often have negative side effects, the most common of which is a reduction in blood pressure, which is detrimental to a person’s health.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a pain relief option that does not affect blood pressure, and can be a good substitute for conventional painkillers. According to recent research, several clinical studies have confirmed its ability to combat chronic pain.
CBD has been shown to reduce tissue inflammation as a result of the presence of the compound β-caryophyll.
The use of Cannabis in medicine has been known to physicians around the world for centuries. Urology patients in pain turn to the use of cannabidiol for relief. Cannabidiol can address not only urological pain but also pelvic pain.
Most people are unaware or unaware of the fact that there are two types of cannabinoids in the world. Cannabinoids are the ones we produce naturally in our brain to control our endocannabinoid system.
On the other hand, we have the “phytocannabinoids”, the word “Phyto” is Latin for plant and therefore these cannabinoids are produced in plants.
Why do we need CBD oil?
As we grow older, our bodies produce less and less of our own natural cannabinoids. Our endocannabinoid system starts to break down causing problems such as arthritis, dementia, pain and other problems.
If your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is not working properly, your body cannot fight for itself. By adding CBD to your body, we revitalise our ECS and start fighting for ourselves again instead of relying on addictive medication.
CB1 and CB2 receptors are found throughout the human body, including all human skin. Administration of CBD can kill the active virus and restore cell health. In addition, the use of CBD cream/balm can help reduce the physical wart. In addition, CBD oil can replenish the endocannabinoid system, which is critical in regulating many physiological and pathological processes within the body.
In addition, CBD maintains the body’s homeostasis: regulating the immune system is very helpful in combating warts, it is anti-inflammatory . Stress can be detrimental to better health.

Remember that a high dose of CBD oil will not be more effective, quite the opposite. Too much CBD in your body will not be absorbed by the body and as it goes in it will go out. So proper dosage is the most important thing when taking CBD oil.
What is the dosage of CBD oil for prostatitis?
It is important to remember that the dose and dosage of CBD oil can vary depending on the person and the condition being treated. It is always advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before using any CBD product.
Initial generic recommendations are a total starting dose of 0.5 ml (equivalent to 10 drops) of 20% CBD oil with 0.1´8% THC, taken three times daily. The dose can be gradually increased up to a maximum of 1 ml (equivalent to 20 drops) three times a day, if necessary.
It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and start with the lowest possible dose to determine how the body reacts before increasing the dose. In addition, it is important to keep in mind that prostatitis can be caused by different factors, so other treatments in addition to CBD oil may be needed to address prostate inflammation.
