Whether you have osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, hemp and CBD may assist in pain management for arthritis.
In 2019, the Arthritis Foundation surveyed 2,600 Arthritis patients and discovered 79% of the surveyors have either used CBD for pain or are considering CBD as an alternate therapy. It’s no secret, the popularity of CBD has made people curious to see if organic cannabinoids and terpenes in hemp can better their quality of life.
Throughout the years, ample research has been conducted on the effects cannabinoids in hemp (such as CBD and THC) have on arthritis pain and arthritis prevention. Most of this research has been on animals but since all mammals have an endocannabinoid system, the effects should nearly parallel in humans.
In 2000, one study showed CBD oil blocked the progression of arthritis in mice. Another test in 2006 resulted in the same conclusions for arthritis pain relief. In 2016, more research was undertaken with CBD topical cream. The ointment was administered to animals showing signs of arthritis. The CBD cream provided therapeutic relief to the animals without any known CBD side effects.
Cannabinoid receptors are found in the nervous system where joint pain causes occur. By using hemp extract to stimulate these cannabinoid receptors, the pain response caused by the nervous system can be reduced.
Since rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, assessing the causes and symptoms varies from standard osteoarthritis causes that are common is most aging adults. But hemp oil and hemp lotion may help with rheumatoid arthritis treatment too.
Autoimmune disorders are linked to inflammation in the body, and cannabinoids are experts in warding off pain in joints caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Just like how cannabinoid receptors are found in the nervous system, they are also found on the cells in the immune system. Cannabinoids in hemp oil activate these receptors to promote immunoregulation and analgesic (pain relief) effects.
Anecdotally, many of our customers have noticed significant pain relief for arthritis by using ourANIM RELIEF formula. One of those dedicated users is Asheville Botanicals’ own chief marketing officer Arthur Viente. He decided to start working with the team after experiencing tremendous reduction in his osteoarthritis pain just by taking .25ml of the RELIEF formula twice a day.
Such results can depend on the CBD oil you’re using. A lot of companies use CBD isolate blends that strip away vital nutrients in the hemp plant. Rather than emphasizing quantity, Anim focuses on quality. Our CBD dosage suggestions are very small, but have powerful effects because every aspect of the hemp plant (phytonutrients, cannabinoids and terpenes) is used in the full spectrum CBD oil tincture to address pain throughout all the cannabinoid receptors in the body.
CBD Oil for Arthritis:
We recommend starting with ourANIM RELIEF formula as the most effective way to combat arthritis pain. You can start with self-medicated self dosing, but most of our customers prefer taking .25ml twice a day.
Topical Creams for Arthritis:
For immediate and localized support, use theANIM RELIEF Sports Gel to help joint pain and stiffness. We add the naturally occurring ingredients hemp, menthol, and arnica to the lotion to provide cooling sensations and swelling reduction.
If you want to reduce use of prescription pain pills and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen, add CBD oil to your list of arthritis treatment methods. Hemp is completely organic and has little to no side effects unlike pills. Make sure to consult a doctor first in case CBD interacts with any of your current medications.
Another important factor to consider is reducing sugar intake. Sugar is a natural inflammatory that can amplify aches and pains. Instead of taking sugary CBD gummies, opt forsugar-free sublingual oils.
If you’re one of 50 million Americans who suffer from arthritis pain, add hemp extract oils and hemp cream to your daily routine. CBD won’t cure arthritis, but it can alleviate chronic pain and sleep problems caused by the condition.
