CBD and Arthritis
Can CBD help ease symptoms of Arthritis?
There is research in America that says yes. In the UK we are still doing lots of tests and research into its benefits but have lots to still do but many sufferers are finding many benefits from taking CBD and documenting it.
Our body’s Endocannabinoid system has two cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2
A majority of CB1 receptors are found in the brain and are associated with cognitive actions related to coordination, mood, thinking, and appetite.
The CB2 receptors, on the other hand, can be found in the immune system. This makes them more responsible for the body’s response to pain and inflammation. CBD impacts the CB2 receptors indirectly not by attaching but by enticing the body to make more of its own cannabinoids. This creates a positive effect on the body’s pain and inflammation responses. Thus offering several potential benefits to Arthritis sufferers.

You may also find that topical CBD products like CBD pain balm and CBD massage oil can help target the specific area of pain and inflammation as well as taking the CBD sublingually.
