how to use cbd oil for arthritis

When it comes to CBDPure hemp oil, it isn’t as potent as those offered by Royal CBD — so if you’re looking for something high potency CBDPure may not be the best option available. However, if you want something cheap that maintains a high level of quality — CBDPure is an excellent choice.

Hemp Bombs are one of the longest-standing companies in the CBD space. They’ve been around for years now, dating back before the CBD boom. As a result, the company has had a chance to become well-established in the industry, and have a loyal customer base as a result.

Every test I’ve seen from Nuleaf Naturals proves the oil is free from contaminants like heavy metals or pesticides, and the potency is almost always exactly the advertised potency. Occasionally a batch will come out that’s 2-5% off the advertised amount — which is expected for full-spectrum extracts.

The full-spectrum of cannabinoids means you’re getting the synergistic effects from all naturally-occurring compounds in hemp, including the supportive cannabinoids and terpenes. As a result, you need less CBD to achieve the desired results than you would with CBD isolate. The Gold Bee CBD oil packs 1200 mg of CBD in a 30-mL bottle, translating into 40 mg of CBD daily. The dosage fits within the most common range for daily use.

For those of you who want to understand how CBD works for arthritis, and what else you can do to make the effects of CBD even better, keep reading the sections below. If you’re simply looking for the best CBD oil to take, here’s a list of my top five CBD oils — including a breakdown of why I think it’s such a strong option.

RA is an autoimmune inflammatory disease, in which the immune system attacks healthy cells in the body and causes inflammation. RA commonly affects joints in the hands, wrists, and knees, causing the joint lining to become inflamed and damaging the tissue. This causes chronic joint pain and leads to deformity. RA can also affect other tissues throughout the body, such as the lungs, heart, and eyes.

CBD can increase your level of coumadin, a blood thinner.

Health Benefits of CBD for RA

If CBD alone doesn’t work and you are in a state where medical or recreational marijuana is legal, you could consider talking to your doctor about taking CBD with a very low-dose THC product. Be aware that even at low levels, THC may make you feel high, resulting in cognitive, motor, and balance impairment.

Treatment with CBD should be started slowly and under the supervision of a doctor, who will oversee its effectiveness and side effects. There have been reports of mild side effects of CBD.

Your healthcare provider may direct you to start with 20-40 mg per day and increase slowly each day until you feel the relief you’re looking for.

Perhaps you’ve been tempted to try it. After all, most types of arthritis are not cured by other treatments, and CBD is considered a less addictive option than opiates. Or maybe it’s the marketing that recommends CBD products for everything from arthritis to anxiety to seizures. The ads are pretty hard to miss. (Now here’s a coincidence: as I was writing this, my email preview pane displayed a message that seemed to jump off the screen: CBD Has Helped Millions!! Try It Free Today!)

If you’re interested in CBD treatment for chronic arthritis pain or if you’re already taking it, review the pros, cons, and latest news with your healthcare providers, and together you can decide on a reasonable treatment plan. Depending on the type of arthritis you have, it may be quite important to continue your conventional, prescribed medications even if you pursue additional relief with CBD products.

A word about arthritis pain

Of course, there is anecdotal evidence and testimonials galore, including reports of dramatic improvement by people who tried CBD in its various forms (including capsule, liquid, topical, and spray) for their pain. But we are still waiting for well-designed, scientifically valid, and rigorous clinical trials (such as this one in progress) that are so badly needed to answer the question of just how helpful CBD may be to people with chronic arthritis pain.
