Arthritis


What is Arthritis and the symptoms?

Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints. It can affect one joint or multiple joints. The symptoms of arthritis usually develop over time, but they may also appear suddenly. Arthritis is most commonly seen in adults over the age of 65, but it can also develop in children, teens, and younger adults. Arthritis is more common in women than men and in people who are overweight.

Studies have shown that plant based endocannabinoid medicines can potentially improve arthritis symptoms. Some people with arthritis who use endocannabinoid medicines report noticeable pain relief, improved sleep, or reduced anxiety1]. Endocannabinoid medicine interacts with receptors that influence pain and inflammation in the body. Endocannabinoid medicine may affect the way that receptors in your body respond to the signals that they receive, possibly helping reduce inflammation and pain[2]. A 2016 study[3] found that endocannabinoid medicine has the potential to relieve pain and inflammation associated with arthritis.
