Topical CBD: A Wonder Drug that Alleviates Arthritis Pain
April 16, 2021 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Arthritis comes in many forms, but the most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis, which is also known as "wear and tear" arthritis, is painful but generally not a source of chronic inflammation.
You may find that exercise makes you stiff and sore the next day, but gentle movement often reduces osteoarthritis pain for a bit as you move. Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory condition that disfigures joints. Movement is generally painful all the time.
Can Topical CBD Oil Relieve Arthritis Pain?
Topical CBD can offer users the chance to control their dosage. The simple application of CBD on sore or swollen joints goes directly to the nerve cells and affects the transmittal of pain receptors.
It's important to note that anyone who's currently on medication to slow or stop the spread of rheumatoid arthritis inflammation should discuss their CBD interest with their physician. Reducing the transmission of pain information can help lower your pain level, but it doesn't appear to impact inflammation.
Topical Dosage CBD Usage Advantages
CBD can be taken
- orally, under the tongue, or between the cheek and gum
- on the skin
- as a vape
- as an edible
The first three options enter the bloodstream and get put to work quickly; edibles offer relief after digestion. Using a topical allows you to put the product to work exactly where you need it.
CBD is a cannabis product and that makes folks nervous. However, it's important to remember that CBD is not the psychoactive component. It's THC that gets you high, and CBD products don't contain THC.
It's important to note that CBD is legal in all 50 states. Currently, there are no safety risks known to those who use CBD, either as a topical, a sublingual, or an edible.
Guidelines of Using Topical CBD for Arthritis Pain
Keep a journal of your CBD use. Do a simple skin test to make sure that you don't suffer a reaction to any component in your topical CBD. Note in your journal how the skin feels and how the joint feels in 30 minutes, then in an hour, in 90 minutes, and in two hours.
The key to determining your personal CBD needs is tracking. What's your pain level before application, and what happens to your pain level? What about your energy level? There are many people who use CBD products as a sleeping aid. Does your topical application make you sleepy? If so, you may need to find the dosage that gives you relief without leaving you feeling drowsy.
CBD is a highly personal product. There are many folks who have no reaction at all to the product, while others find that even a tiny dose makes them sleepy. Of course, you can certainly use the product before bed to help you rest deeply. Use a journal to track your pain level and energetic response to the product.
