Joint pain is often caused by arthritis or osteoarthritis. Arthritis is an inflammatory disease of the joints caused, for example, by bacteria that cause overheating, oozing, swelling and redness. More than 100 types of arthritis have been diagnosed, but they all have a common denominator – joint inflammation, which causes destruction of the cartilage that protects the joint from friction during movement.
In contrast, osteoarthritis is a degenerative wear and tear on the joints that exceeds the normal age range. The cause may be overweight, dislocated joints, or degeneration associated with inflammation. The disease often occurs in the knee joint, in older people it is more seriously affected.
Osteoarthritis is a form of osteoarthritis that damages the tissue that covers the ends of the bones in the joint. This smooth tissue is called cartilage. When this happens, the bones begin to rub against each other. This friction causes pain, swelling, and loss of motion in the joint.
How can cannabinoids help with these diseases?
Cannabis extracts have been used to treat joint diseases for hundreds of years. Unfortunately, these treatments have been a little forgotten with the taboo and probably need to be rediscovered. This is happening now.
The anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol (CBD) have already been proven in numerous studies.
For example, a study by Dr. Mark Feldmann, a British physician and immunologist who worked with laboratory mice, concluded that CBD dramatically reduced the likelihood of acute arthritis. He used cannabis for various types of joint diseases and concluded: “The inflammation in the mice was reduced by 50%.”
Other cannabinoids have also been shown to have beneficial effects on pain associated with arthritis in a study of 58 patients at the Royal National Hospital, UK. It used Sativex cannabis extract, which was able to significantly relieve pain and improve patient movement.
In Kanaturia, you can also buy products that help relieve joint pain and thus improve movement. This includes Arthrocann Collagen Omega 3-6 Forte, a nutritional supplement that also includes Omega 3-6 unsaturated fatty acids from flax and hemp seeds. It can be used to treat and prevent injuries to tendons, muscles and joints, and is especially suitable for athletes and the elderly.
Another product is Arthrocann – warming gel – an anti-inflammatory massage gel based on hemp and colloidal silver. When rubbed in, it produces a strong sensation of warmth, which causes immediate pain relief in the area.
Finally, we would like to mention Forte myCBD Creme, which induces a relaxing and pleasant sensation in joints and muscles.
