One of the greatest things about medical cannabis is its ability to be used in so many different ways. The multitude of options may come off intimidating at first. With all these different products, which CBD method works best for arthritis?
There are two main types of arthritis, Osteoarthritis (OA) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Individuals who develop OA have wear and tear on their body and have lost the cartilage between their joints that keep it from hurting when you move. Those who have RA have an autoimmune disease that causes the body to attack the joints, hardening the synovium making your joints stiff and painful. CBD oil can help with both types of arthritis because it reduces inflammation and reduces sensitivity to pain. The method that works best depends on your comfort level and how severe your arthritis is.
CBD e-cigarettes, tinctures, and candy all are valid methods when treating arthritis that comes and goes. If your arthritis comes in waves or only during activity, you can use these methods to get the CBD into your system quickly and lasting for a few hours, so you aren’t held back by pain.
If you have arthritis in an easy to reach spots such as your knees, knuckles, or elbows, CBD topicals like cream and pain spray help treat the affected area quickly and efficiently. By applying CBD to your joints, you are reducing any inflammation in that area as well as it’s sensitivity to pain.
If you have arthritis that never leaves, taking CBD edibles or suppositories can help you have relief for a more extended period. Edibles will take longer to work than suppositories, but both methods can last you through most of your day.
Sometimes arthritis doesn’t stay on the same pain scale. Sometime arthritis will be worse during specific activities. So what do you do if the amount of CBD your taking isn’t enough that day? Having e-cigarettes, tinctures, or cream on hand as well will come in handy when your arthritis starts acting up more than usual.
