CBD and Arthritis are hot topics these days. Recent studies claim that cannabidiol oil could play a role in the treatment of arthritis. In this article we will examine the benefits of cannabidiol oil and whether there any side effects you should be aware of before using it? We will look at the scientific tests behind the benefits and side effects of CANNABIDIOL. We will also look at if CANNABIDIOL oil may be an effective treatment for arthritis and chronic pain.

CANNABIDIOL oil is the oil derived from hemp, which is a type of cannabis plant. CANNABIDIOL is a type of cannabinoid. A Cannabinoid is is a naturally occurring chemical  found in cannabis plants.

“ CBD is not psychoactive.”

Cannabis contains several different chemicals and one of these chemicals is called delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC),and it is psychoactive.

Unlike CANNABIDIOL, THC can change a person’s mental and make them feel high.

There are many different CANNABIDIOL oil products available, and the amount of CANNABIDIOL in them can vary widely.

Because people use cannabis recreationally it makes many questions whether there is any science or medical benefits to the plant.

Hemp cannabis plants contain less than 0.3% THC by law.

Some people use CANNABIDIOL oil to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

CBD and arthritis pain relief

Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States, affecting over 50 million Americans. The two most common types of arthritis are:

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA): An autoimmune disease in which a person’s immune system attacks their joints, causing inflammation. RA commonly affects the hands and feet and leads to painful, swollen, and stiff joints.

Osteoarthritis (OA): A degenerative disease that affects joint cartilage and bones, causing pain and stiffness. It often affects the hip, knee, and thumb joints.

Some studies on animals suggest that CANNABIDIOL could help to treat arthritis and relieve the associated inflammatory pain:

A 2011 study found that CANNABIDIOL helped to reduce inflammatory pain in rats by affecting the way that pain receptors respond to stimuli.

A 2014 review of the existing body of research on animals concluded that CANNABIDIOL may be an effective treatment for OA.

A 2016 study found that the topical application of CANNABIDIOL had the potential to relieve pain and inflammation associated with arthritis.

A 2017 study found that CANNABIDIOL might be a safe and useful treatment for OA joint pain.

However, to date, there a lack of scientific evidence to prove conclusively that CANNABIDIOL is an effective arthritis treatment for humans.

A 2006 study found that a cannabis-based mouth spray called Sativex helped to relieve arthritis pain. However, the cannabis plant extracts that the company use to make the spray contain both CANNABIDIOL and THC.
