Project Description

Arthritis is an umbrella term that refers to the inflammation of a joint.

Cannabis Benefits

Cannabinoids, such as CBD, attach themselves to specialized receptors in a person’s brain and immune system. One of these receptors, called a CB2 receptor, plays a role in the immune system by managing pain and inflammation.

Researchers believe that when CBD enters a person’s body, it may attach to CB2 receptors. Alternatively, it may cause the body to produce natural cannabinoids that attach to the CB2 receptors. Either way, scientists think CBD affects the way that these receptors respond to the signals that they receive, possibly helping reduce inflammation and pain

A gluten-free diet, weight loss and swimming also can reduce symptoms.

Best Strains

  • CBD oil
  • CBD creams or gels that people can apply to the skin of the areas affected by arthritis
  • Also can be taken in capsule form or as an oral spray

What Women Say

“Once I got my CBD oil, I used it sublingually (under my tongue) every couple of hours.  It started working hour by hour more and more.  After day 1, almost all the pain was gone.  After I used up the bottle, I bought some other CBD product but it didn’t work, I got scammed and found out there was not much CBD in the product.  Now I’m wiser and look carefully at the label and who I buy from.  Based on my experiences, I would say that everyone with Fibromyalgia pain should try CBD oil – but make sure it’s the good stuff!”
