Does CBD relieve arthritis symptoms? Animal studies have suggested that CBD has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties, but quality human studies have not been measured yet. Anecdotally, some arthritis sufferers who have tried CBD report measurable pain relief, improved sleep, and/or decreased anxiety. On the other hand, some people who take CBD for arthritis do not experience any symptom improvements.
My Fathers RH Story:
My father who was a Vietnam Veteran and had Debilitating RH, so much it deformed his hands and feet. He would use the 5000mg cooling cream I created and keep it by his bed at night since often times he would wake up with terrible muscle cramps in his legs.
He would use the 2000mg CBD oil on his hands and feet or he would use the 10,000mg cream. We could not get him to take the CBD oil orally. He was just dead set against it. Anything to do with marijuana he wanted nothing to do it, even though I promised him it would not get him high or buzzed since this was from the hemp plant and not the marijuana plant. So I do not have any first hand experience to share with my customers about taking it orally.
Now this did not cure his RH but it did help lessen the pain he was experiencing. It actually made his last few years that much more comfortable even though the RH was still ravaging his body.
Should You Try CBD?
There is ongoing research to determine the safety of CBD. Currently, very little is known about CBD use by arthritis sufferers. Moderate doses have not been linked to any significant safety issues to date. Some medications that people with arthritis frequently take may interact with CBD, according to some researchers so always check with your medical doctor before using any dietary supplement.
If you would like to try some CBD then I recommend you try the one my pop used.
If you don’t like menthol or a cooling sensation then try the 10,000mg cream.
