CBD

Is CBD effective for arthritis pain?

Recent studies have proved that CBD oil can be effective in the treatment of
Arthritis. CBD is a cannabinoid which is extracted from the cannabis plant, but it doesn’t
have psychoactive properties. Though some controversies are surrounding the
legalization of the CBD, still many products are being launched daily, and people are
using them with enthusiasm.

Arthritis is a leading cause of disability in the people, and it is affecting millions of
people. There are two types of arthritis – Rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune
disease attacking joints and osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative disease affecting
cartilage and bones. Studies suggest that CBD can help with the arthritis pain by limiting
the inflammation in the joints. A study in 2016 proved that topical application of the
CBD can relieve the pain and inflammation caused due to arthritis. A cannabis-based
mouth spray Sativex was found to be very effective in the Arthritis.

CBD combines itself with specialized receptors that play a key role in managing pain and
inflammation. Researchers believe that CBD gets into the body and combine itself to
CB2 receptors. Additionally, it may also encourage the body to produce natural
cannabinoids.

CBD oil shows promise as an arthritis treatment. However, more studies are needed to
establish the certainty of the effectiveness of the CBD in arthritis.
