Arthritis is a term that encapsulates over 100 joint-related issues including joint pain, joint stiffness, reduced joint mobility and swelling. The most common being Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid, both of which can be debilitating, painful and also depressing for those who suffer with it.
Exact science? Yes, there is still more scientific research needed to prove that CBD helps sufferers. Yet, anecdotal reports and findings are providing more and more evidence that CBD being consumed and applied as a treatment from person to person does help them.
Animal studies have provided evidence that CBD does help with inflammation and pain with no side effects. Most things start with this sort of lab test to prove efficacy and safety, but when you begin to research and read, the reports to be honest are quite long and technical.
The problem I foresee with human-based trials is the fact that there are so many different types of CBD formulations and products in the market, companies manufacture products in different ways and with different techniques.
CBD in itself has proven to aid inflammation and block pain by working with and supplementing the bodies internal Endocannabinoid system “ECS”, I wrote a blog on this earlier this year so take a look back if you wish to gain more of an understanding of the Endocannabinoid System.
What I will say is that everyone is different genetically, and so everyone has different body chemistry. It is for this reason some of us find different product types and dosages work better, so for those who don’t notice a difference when trying CBD for their ailments it could be down to dose or even the product brand they have tried. The other point that should be noted is that we do not promote CBD as the one shop fix all alternative to better wellbeing. Our diet, rest, routine and activities all play a role in better health.
