What Kind of Cannabis is Best for Arthritis Pain Relief?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-euphoric chemical that won't make you feel “high” and may even help counteract some of the negative effects of THC when used together. Research has revealed that CBD has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, making it an effective treatment for pain-related ailments such as arthritis. Most people with cases of arthritis using CBD strains reported progressive pain relief. Some studies suggest that cannabidiol (CBD) oil may help alleviate arthritis pain, improve sleep and reduce anxiety.

CBD oil contains extracts from cannabis plants and is used by some to relieve pain associated with chronic conditions, such as arthritis. A good choice for people with arthritis is Cannatonic, a cannabis strain with a high CBD content and a low content of THC. This strain has been shown to be effective in reducing inflammation and pain, providing physical and mental relief. The cannabis plant contains more than 540 chemicals, including more than 100 active chemicals known as cannabinoids.

Routes of administration of medical cannabis for rheumatoid arthritis include smoking or vaping, consuming edibles or tinctures (sublingual), applying a topical gel, and using oromucus extracts. Terpenes (the chemicals in the cannabis plant that form the flavors and aromas of the variety) act in synergy with cannabinoids to generate the “entourage effect”, which refers to the compounds in cannabis that work together to improve their overall impact on the body. Dr. Kevin Boehnke, a researcher at the University of Michigan Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research Center, focuses on medical cannabis as an analgesic and opioid substitute for chronic pain.

Compared to stronger painkillers, such as opioids, medical cannabis has fewer serious adverse side effects. Medical cannabis offers an effective and fast-acting remedy for relieving several symptoms associated with the pain that accompanies tendonitis. Although it has some psychoactive effects, they are said to be mild and mild, so it is still considered an effective medical cannabis strain. You can get up-to-date information on the legality of medical cannabis on the National Conference of State Legislatures website.

While THC has medical applications, it is also intoxicating and, therefore, is the main ingredient behind the recreational effects of cannabis. Many people use cannabis to treat medical conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety and sleep disorders. Researchers concluded that doctors should consider cannabis as a third- or fourth-line therapy for treating arthritis pain, meaning that several other treatments must first be tried before turning to cannabis. Many people who use cannabis for medical purposes take CBD or other cannabis products that contain little or no THC.
