CBD oil for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a very common autoimmune disease

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease which affects joints as well as the tissue surrounding them. It is an autoimmune disease, which means that the immune system in patients with rheumatoid arthritis does not function properly, causing it to attack its own tissue and joints.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a very common autoimmune disease which affects as much as 1% of the entire population. It most often occurs between the ages of 40 and 60 and is more common in women.


Excessive immune response leads to chronic inflammation

Although on hearing the word 'inflammation' we usually think of a medical condition which is necessary to treat as soon as possible, inflammatory processes are in fact vital for our health. The body's immune system triggers a process of inflammation when there is danger due to infection, injury etc. When this happens, the inflammation takes hold and isolates the affected areas, thus preventing the infection from spreading throughout the body.

When we talk about autoimmune processes, it refers to the body's excessive immune system reactions. When this happens, the immune system cells leave the bloodstream, attack joint tissue and cause inflammation.

When this occurs over an extended length of time, it is referred to as a 'chronic inflammation', which causes harm to the body. Examples of such chronic inflammations are asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases.


CBD has been proven to reduce inflammatory processes in the body

CBD cannabinoid, an extract of the Cannabis Sativa industrial hemp plant, has a lot of potential in treating and alleviating the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. Due to its exceptional properties, CBD cannabinoid is capable of regulating the working of the immune system in the human body. There are different natural ingredients that have an anti-inflammatory effect on the human body like turmeric, ginger, cloves, etc. So, why is CBD special?

CBD cannabinoid binds to the body's CB2 receptors, which are linked to the immune system, thus it acts directly on the immune system by halting its excessive functioning. A study carried out in the Netherlands in 2014 proved the effectiveness of CBD cannabinoid in the functioning of the immune system and, consequently, in reducing the body's inflammatory processes (link to the study....). Since rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammation, CBD cannabinoid is an increasingly popular choice for a natural approach to alleviating this disease.


Cannabis-derived Sativex is successful in treating chronic pain in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

Sativex is a natural medicine which is based on hemp extract. The medicine was used in a study which was carried out by the British Society for Rheumatology under the leadership of Dr. David Blake. The study showed a significant reduction in symptoms and a decrease in the activity of rheumatoid arthritis in patients who took medicinal Sativex.


In addition to numerous studies, the effectiveness of CBD is demonstrated by stories from users

The effectiveness of CBD cannabinoid in alleviating rheumatoid arthritis has been proven and supported by numerous scientific studies. As well as the studies, its effectiveness has been demonstrated by positive stories from users of CBD cannabinoid, for whom this natural extract has been life changing. There are an increasing number of such positive stories, in fact there are so many, that we cannot overlook them.

Rheumatoid arthritis is not an easy disease to manage, as it is accompanied by chronic pain and it frequently hinders patients in carrying out every day tasks. A natural alternative to traditional medicine is therefore welcome, especially when it comes to a truly effective therapy which has practically no significant negative side effects.


Choosing the right product and dosage of CBD

The choice of concentration of CBD cannabinoid and its method of application depend on the problem that CBD is being used to address. In cases where it is being used preventively or for easing milder conditions such as insomnia or skin problems, CBD 3% or 5% drops are the most popular. In cases where CBD cannabinoid is being used to address more serious autoimmune conditions, a higher percentage of CBD cannabinoid is usually required as a supplementary therapy.

The majority of patients with rheumatoid arthritis usually start by using 10% CBD drops, a few drops of which are taken each evening. The optimum method of ingestion is through the mucous membrane (beneath the tongue), as this way CBD travels most directly into the bloodstream and begins working. Of course, the dosage varies according to each individual, as each body is different and reacts differently to this natural remedy.
