The New Arthritis
Treatment From
An Old Herb
T

hose of us who are near - or past - our half-century mark
have lived to see a lot of remarkable changes in society.
One of the most notable is surely the dramatic change in
America's attitude toward cannabis.
The plant that was once grown by hippies is now advocated
by all walks of life. Thanks to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill
back in December, hemp and all hemp-derived products are
now federally legal. And now cannabidiol (CBD), a product of
cannabis, is all the rage in the health-and-wellness world with
companies like cbdMD providing all-natural relief with a wide
range of products.
However, CBD is a long way from the stuff that fueled Ken
Kesey's road trip. Instead, it's a non-intoxicating, non-addictive
compound that's extracted from industrial hemp bred to have
low amounts of THC - less than 0.3% to be exact.
Researchers are learning more and more about CBD every
day, but one thing they know for sure is that it works by interacting with the body's Endocannabinoid System (ECS). CBD
interacts with receptors found throughout the ECS that work to
emit naturally beneficial effects.
The ECS helps regulate many aspects of life, including
mood, fertility, digestion, and immune systems. Those advancing years will be especially interested in how CBD can help
their immune system. CBD is also showing great promise with
alleviating inflammation associated with arthritis and joint pain.

Recent studies have been conducted to test CBD effectively against osteoarthritis, which is the kind of arthritis that
comes as your joints begin to break down with age. CBD has
also shown positive signs in combating the painful signs of
rheumatoid arthritis, an immune-system dysfunction that
tends to worsen over time.
Intriguingly, another study found that CBD worked to
reduce the effects of spinal disc degeneration. This finding suggests that CBD isn't just blocking pain, but is actually
slowing the progression of any associated pain.
If you're interested in using CBD to help reduce the pain
associated with arthritis and other joint issues, you can find it
in many different applications. A topical product, like a cream

or lotion, is a good method of delivery if you need fast, targeted relief.
If you're experiencing pain throughout your body, you
may want to explore ingestibles like CBD tinctures, capsules,
vape oils, or gummies.
