Cannabis oil is an all-new treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. This week we celebrate, or remember, Rheumatoid Arthritis Day on 24 March. This day was set aside to think about the joints and immune system’s diseases and why people get them and suffer so much pain. At Cannabis Therapy, we also remind our clients that cannabis oil can be successfully used to treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

How To Make Cannabis Oil For Rheumatoid Arthritis

Cannabis oil can be infused into balms or topical treatments. Rub a cannabis balm into sore joints to ensure relief from inflammation and pain. A few drops of cannabis oil tincture on or under the tongue also offers instant relief to people with rheumatoid arthritis if used regularly. Some patients prefer to take capsules or suppositories, while others like to inhale a cannabis vape oil in a vaporiser or vape pen.

Cannabis Oil as a Treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis


Cannabinoids Work to Relieve Rheumatoid Arthritis

To understand how cannabis oil can be used as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, we have to know how the chemical components of cannabis work. These cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) and cannabinoid receptors to regulate natural functions in the body, therefore fighting disease. The endocannabinoid system fights inflammation, the first sign of illness, and important cells express CB2 receptors to ensure homeostasis. When a joint becomes inflamed, toxic reactions occur, and the patient feels pain and stiffness. When the ECS is activated, it can decrease pain signals in the central and peripheral nervous systems. Cannabis cannabinoids can also play a role here.

CBD and THC are Natural Anti-Inflammatories

Medical cannabis is a natural anti-inflammatory compound and pain killer used to successfully treat arthritis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a fantastic natural therapy, used for inflammatory conditions, pain, stress, anxiety, insomnia and many more illnesses. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can also treat pain and inflammation but must be used responsibly as it is psychoactive and can have side effects for the patient. HOWEVER, mixing THC with CBD mitigates these psychotic properties and ensures a potent medication for many conditions. Both THC and CBD have been found to reduce pain, reduce insomnia and bring relief to rheumatoid arthritis patients.

CBD Can Stop RA and Remove all Dependence on Opiates

Scientists are excited that research has uncovered the ability of CBD to suppress T-cell activity in the joints, therefore stopping the start of RA. CBD also treats the inflammation associated with this disease and reduces pain in that area. Some RA patients could wean themselves off their pharmaceutical opiates when they took regular CBD cannabis oil. The best CBD cannabis oils are extracted using supercritical CO2 extraction – to ensure there is less THC, no chemicals or preservatives. Use only organic products for the best results, and order from reputable dealers.

Remember Rheumatoid Arthritis Day this weekend. Treat your condition as soon as possible because RA is known to spread from your joints into your vital organs. Use cannabis oil to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis, a debilitating autoimmune disease.
