Can CBD Oil Help Inner Ear Problems?

Key Takeaways

  • One should not put CBD oil in the ear, as it is only for oral intake. Moreover, CBD oil cannot reach the inner ear.
  • Sublingual use of CBD oil may help with inner ear problems like tinnitus, dizziness, and nausea.

Inner ear problems may occur due to a range of issues, from infections to inflammatory conditions to autoimmune diseases. CBD oil does not cure these conditions, but it may provide some relief. Moreover, inner ear problems may cause much distress, and their symptoms include pain, dizziness, tinnitus or sound in the ear, balance problems, and more.

In this article, I will discuss everything readers need to know about using CBD oil for inner ear problems. Together, we will discover how to safely use CBD for such issues and what to expect.

Fortunately, most inner ear problems can be treated. However, in many cases, these issues tend to be chronic, with many complaining of dizziness, balance issues, and noise in their ears months after the initial issue has been treated.(1)

CBD oil is not a cure for these conditions. However, it does have a role in managing inner ear problems due to its wide-ranging health effects. CBD oil can lower inflammation, modulate immunity, and influence mood and the workings of the brain. Thus, CBD oil can be expected to provide some relief in such complex, chronic, and distressing conditions.

However, there are a few things to understand before considering using CBD for inner ear problems. People ask about CBD oil in ear, or can I put CBD oil in my ear? Well, be clear that regular CBD oil is for oral intake or sublingual use, and thus, one cannot put that oil in an ear.

CBD oil in an ear does not pose any risk. However, it has not been tested for the purpose. After all, commonly sold CBD oil is not a medicine. It is not a good idea to use CBD oil as ear drops.

CBD oil for oral intake contains aromatic compounds, terpenes, and oils that might rather irritate your eardrum. However, more importantly, we are talking about the inner ear, not the outer ear. It means that ear drops have a limited role in such issues. Ear drops cannot enter the inner ear, anyway.

It does not mean that CBD does not have any role in managing inner ear problems. What we are suggesting here is that most of CBD’s benefits would be so-called systemic. This means that taking CBD oil through other routes like oral ingestion, sublingual use, or even CBD vape pens would help manage some of the signs and symptoms of inner ear problems.

Remember that inner ear problems are not just local; they are rather due to inflammation and certain changes in nerves, the immune system, and even the brain. Studies show that using CBD oil can relieve symptoms of tinnitus.

It can also provide prolonged relief by altering the course of the disease. CBD can help with tinnitus, dizziness, vertigo, and other issues. There are already some early studies suggesting that CBD can help in many ways, like through its impact on endocannabinoid receptors, calming nerves, reducing pain, and increasing nerve growth. Oral intake of CBD oil may be good for various neural problems, and inner ear problems are primarily neural.(2)

The Bottom Line

CBD oil can help manage inner ear problems. Moreover, inner ear disease may cause wide-ranging issues like tinnitus or constant noise/ringing in the ear, vertigo, dizziness, and so on. However, there are a few things to remember when considering CBD for the inner ear. One does not need to look for CBD ear drops, as this is not about the outer ear. Instead, one may benefit from CBD oil or vape pens.

CBD is especially good for providing some symptomatic relief from these chronic issues. CBD is not a remedy for the problem. It is always essential to treat the underlying cause of inner ear disease. CBD can be just of some help as it can reduce inflammation, promote nerve growth, and help people stay calm.

To sum up, by going through many research articles, I can say that CBD oil may help with inner ear problems. However, only sublingual or oral intake will help. One should not put CBD oil in an ear, as it is not meant for the purpose and may cause more harm than good.
