How CBD Can Help With Arthritis Pain

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound extracted from the hemp plant. CBD is federally legal and is non-psychoactive - meaning that it doesn’t give you any sort of “high”. Studies show that CBD use has a positive effect on pain relief and inflammation, meaning that it’s an effective treatment for arthritis and other sources of pain in muscles and joints. While the use of CBD is still a relatively new treatment for pain relief, research that has been conducted thus far has shown that there are no serious safety concerns when CBD is used as intended. If you have questions about whether or not CBD is right for you, please contact your healthcare provider!

How To Use CBD For Arthritis

CBD is traditionally used in three different ways: it can be ingested, inhaled, or applied to the skin around the problem area. The most common way to use CBD is by ingesting it. CBD for oral ingestion comes in many different forms including:

  • Edibles
  • Oils
  • Capsules
  • ...and more.

When CBD is ingested, the compound is slowly absorbed in the digestive tract and effects can typically be felt an hour or two after taking the CBD. The next way to use CBD is by inhaling it using a vaporizer. When CBD is inhaled, effects are typically felt faster, however there are unknown health risks associated with inhaling any kind of oil vapors, (not just CBD0. Another way to use CBD is by applying topical CBD products to the skin around the area that is in need of relief. While the effects of topical products can take a while to kick in, they’re beneficial because they allow you to specifically target the problem area.

How Much CBD Should I Use To Treat Arthritis?

The amount of CBD you should use depends on your tolerance to the compound. If you’re a new CBD user, you should start off slow with small doses a few times per day so you can get to know how it affects your body. You can then work your way up from there, increasing your dose in small increments over a period of several weeks until you know how much CBD your body needs in order to achieve the desired effects.
