Arthritis is a common and generic name for diseases of the joints causing pain in them.
As we already know, CBD (Cannabidiol) has strong anti-inflammatory properties and reduces pain and thus helps with arthritis.
Can it help in this case?
Arthritis – what is it?
There are over 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions. People of all ages can have arthritis.
Common symptoms of arthritis include swelling, pain, stiffness and reduced mobility. They may remain the same for years, but may improve or worsen over time. Severe arthritis can lead to chronic pain, the patient’s inability to do everyday things and difficulty walking or climbing stairs.
Arthritis can cause permanent changes to the joints. These changes can be seen, for example, because of non-uniform finger joints, but the lesions are often only seen in X-rays. Some types of arthritis also affect the heart, eyes, lungs, lungs, kidneys and skin, as well as the joints.
How CBD works
Cannabinoids, such as CBD, bind to specific receptors in the human brain and immune system. CBD oil affects brain activity. It interacts with two receptors, CB1 and CB2, to reduce pain and inflammatory effects.
CB2 also plays a role in your immune system. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an immune system issue, which affects the tissues of the joints. So, this link to the immune system may explain why CBD oil seems to work well with RA symptoms.
In addition, the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD can also help slow or stop the progression of rheumatoid arthritis, These effects can also reduce some of the other inflammatory symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, such as fatigue and fever.
