Are you one of the 40 million people across the globe who suffer from arthritis?
And are you looking for an alternative to prescription meds that come with way too many side effects to relieve your arthritis symptoms?
Then CBD may just be the answer.
Arthritis has no known cure and many sufferers do not want to take muscle relaxers or anti-inflammatory drugs, as they come with even more side-effects.
Fun Fact: Arthritis doesn’t actually give you the power to be a human weather balloon, but it does mean that you have a heightened sensitivity to changes in Barometric pressure.
That means you can feel tiny changes in the Earth’s atmosphere, that most people can’t!
So you have a sixth sense and aching joints, what now?
CBD is gaining popularity fast among arthritis sufferers as scientific and anecdotal evidence mounts up.
One study concluded that:
“These data indicate that topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviours and inflammation without evident side-effects.”
This means it reduces inflammation, soothes pain and has no side effects!
I’m getting tons of arthritis relief from my cbd and oh my god sleeping so much better! Every time I stop it all comes back. Really struggled not having it in Hawaii, guess I should have tried to get some when I got there.— Big D Outdoors (@DwayneMihalicz) March 1, 2020
Why Use CBD For Arthritis?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the two main active compounds found in marijuana.
Unlike it’s intoxicating counterpart, THC, CBD does not have any mind-altering effects.
CBD has also been found to be a wonderful pain reliever and anti-inflammatory.
Because arthritis is an inflammatory condition it’s easy to understand how CBD can help arthritis sufferers ease their pain and live a normal life thanks to it’s pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties!
How Does CBD Help With Arthritis?
You body has a series of pain receptors that communicate with one another and with your brain.
These receptors are part of your Endocannabinoid System, which is in charge of how you regulate temperature and feel pain.
Scientists believe that CBD helps reduce inflammation in your Endocannabinoid system which provides pain relief to inflamed areas effected by arthritis.
