The Benefits of Using CBD Hemp Oil for Arthritis Pain

The Benefits of Using CBD Hemp Oil for Arthritis Pain

Arthritis is an inflammation disorder that is characterised by chronic joint inflammation along with pain. Although conventional medicine offers many pain-relieving medications, the severity of pain and the side effects of these medications have led to research on alternative therapeutics.
Medical Cannabis or Vijaya seem to be a promising candidate for alternative medicine in arthritis management. The leaves of Vijaya have an essential component called CBD or Cannabidiol. CBD has been proven to show pain-relieving and anti-inflammation activity as a natural remedy. Moreover, there is even more growing evidence supporting the use of CBD for pain management in arthritis.

Understanding CBD Hemp Oil

Hemp leaves consist of 2 distinct compounds: CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) each of which show distinct activities individually as well as together.
Both CBD and THC interact with the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid 2 (CB2) receptors which are part of the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). ECS is involved in decreasing inflammation, including chronic inflammation, and hence making it beneficial to use CBD for pain management in arthriti

Mechanisms of Action

But why use CBD for pain management? Research shows that CBD interacts with the CB2 receptors, thus activating them. Activation of CB2 receptors directly decreases the production of pro-inflammatory molecules like CRP, thereby decreasing inflammation and pain. Thus, CBD relieves inflammation and pain, the two main symptoms of arthritis which affect quality of life in patients. Using products like Cannazo India’s PainAID External which consist of CBD for pain management will help alleviate arthritis symptoms.

Benefits of CBD for Pain

CBD-containing products like Cannazo India’s PainAID External and Vijaya Ambrosia can help alleviate arthritis symptoms owing to their following properties :

  • Anti-inflammatory: CBD directly acts on the ECS and suppresses the synthesis of pro-inflammatory molecules.
  • Pain-relieve: While decreasing inflammation, CBD also activates the body’s ECS and suppresses pain.
  • Improvement in joint mobility: Due to a decrease in inflammation and pain, mobility in joint increases, thus improving quality of life.

A clinical trial done by Wade et al. (2003) on the efficacy of plant extracts of THC and CBD for pain management revealed that both CBD and THC were better than placebo in managing pain. In another clinical trial done by Safakish et al. (2020), using medicinal cannabis was associated with decrease in pain severity over 12 months.

Side Effects and Considerations

Since CBD oil is sourced from natural plant sources, it is usually well-tolerated by most individuals. However, people may experience some mild side effects like:

  • Dry mouth
  • Fatigue
  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Diarrhoea
  • Nausea

However, these side effects are short-lived and usually disappear within days after the body’s ECS is boosted. But in case of excessive side effects, it is recommended to consult your doctor to adjust the dosage of your medications.
