Can CBD be used to treat arthritis? CBD may have pain-relieving or anti-inflammatory properties, these effects have not yet been confirmed in human quality studies. Some people with arthritis have experiencing pain relief, improved sleep, and/or anxiety after trying CBD.
Should I try CBD? Doctors haven’t been able to determine who may benefit from CBD, in what dosage, and in which form. They also don’t know who it will harm. There are some points that everyone can agree on:
CBD cannot be used to replace a doctor’s treatment for inflammatory arthritis.
Before trying cbd cream for pain, patients who are interested should talk to their doctor. They can discuss what has worked and what didn’t in the past, which options are available, how to conduct a trial run, what they should watch out for, and when to return to the doctor to assess the results. To track the effects of medication, keep a log of symptoms and dosages.
High-quality CBD products can be costly, especially if they are used for a long time. You can save money by ensuring that the product has a positive effect on your symptoms.
Which CBD-based products should I consider? You can take CBD orally, orally, orally or on the skin. Each product has its pros and cons.
In the mouth. CBD swallowed in capsules, food, or liquid is absorbed by the digestive tract. Because of the slow absorption and difficult dosing due to delayed effect, unknown stomach acid effects, recent meals, and other factors.
On the skin. Topical products are applied to the skin on top of a painful joint. It is not known if these products contain CBD below the skin.
Inhaled. You can inhale CBD using a vape pen or vaporizer. Inhaling vapor oils or chemical by products can pose dangers to people with inflammatory arthritis.
What amount of CBD should I consume?
Be aware that CBD extracts are mixed with carrier oils, so you need to be aware of two things: how much CBD is in each dose and how much of it to take.
Start slow and low. Begin with a few milligrams per day of CBD sublingually. You can increase the dosage if you don’t feel relief after a week. You can increase the dose in small increments over several days if you need. To maintain a steady level of CBD in your blood, you can continue to take the dose twice daily if you feel relief.
If CBD is not working and you live in a state that legalizes medical marijuana, your doctor may recommend CBD products with very low levels of THC. Even low doses of THC can get you high and cause cognitive, motor, and balance problems. To avoid any unpleasant effects, you should first try THC-containing products at night or at home.
If you are still not seeing relief after a few weeks with CBD or a combination of CBD with very low THC, CBD might not be the right choice for you.
You should immediately stop using CBD products if you experience side effects.
