Could CBD really affect Arthritis?


Arthritis is sadly one of the leading causes for chronic pain amongst us humans these days. And those who experience the sometimes-never-ending pain can agree that it can feel like a hopeless situation without a cure. And while conventional pharmaceutical and painkilling medications can soften some of that pain, a lot of the time these drugs pair up with a lot of side effects and therefor feel almost as equally difficult to live with as the condition itself.

Thankfully CBD oil has begun to take its shape as an all-natural alternative to relief and ease chronic pain, encouraging other patients who suffer from arthritis to make the same switch. So, if you’ve been relying on pain medication and pharmaceuticals, this article could be for you.


Chronic pain

Chronic pain, which results in to arthritis is an inflammation in the joints. About one in five people are diagnosed with arthritis, with the larger group being women, people with heart diseases or diabetes.While there are many different types the two most common types of arthritis are:

• Rheumatoid arthritis: Mostly known as an autoimmune disease in which a person’s immune system attacks their joints, resulting into inflammation and affects the hand and feet by swelling, causing stiffness and painful joints.

• Osteoarthritis: A degenerative disease that affects joints and bones, causing stiffness and pain. Most often affects knees, hips and our thumb joints.


CBD for arthritis

Currently, arthritis has yet no cure. However, based on the already conducted research, scientist believe that CBD can be used as an alternative option to help ease their chronic pain from within. Recent studies show that CBD can be used effectively when it comes to regulating our cells and how our immune system responds to injury, inflammation or joint pain, By applying a CBD balm externally for example, the Cannabidiol is able to moderate the levels of endocannabinoids (the substance which we create within our own bodies) and reduces the inflammation drastically within minutes.


Products and experiences

Thankfully there are many CBD products available that can help with chronic pain like arthritis. A couple popular ones are CBD balm, CBD oil, CBD gel and CBD dabs. We advise you try using a balm externally or a few drops of CBD oil taking orally and experience the benefits yourself. “I am 62 years old and have suffered from painful, and sometimes even immobilizing arthritis, specifically in my wrists and elbows. I tried many conventional medications that the doctor prescribed to me, and began experiencing horrible side effects. About a year ago I decided to switch to CBD oil. I began ingesting drops orally, as well as rubbing the gel into my joints. The results have been miraculous and I am now able to function better than I have in years.” -Summer Andrews
