Aches and pains come for us all at some point, especially as we get older. Tendons and ligaments grow sore more easily as we age, and many of us develop arthritis.
CBD for joint pain
CBD is a rising star in the natural health world for treating pain and inflammation … yet Americans over 65 are the least likely adult demographic in the country to use CBD. It’s time for that to change.
Research on CBD for joint pain is still preliminary—but it’s promising. A 2017 animal study concluded that CBD may be a safe therapeutic to treat osteoarthritis joint pain, as well as block acute inflammatory flare-ups in joints. A 2018 study of older people with osteoarthritis showed some modest improvements in knee pain, particularly in male subjects, when subjects used topical CBD.
If you’re achy, CBD may be just what your body needs for some extra comfort!
Hemp CBD supplements come in a variety of forms. From gummies, oils, and capsules to infused honey, lotions, and more, take CBD the way you want to. CBD topicals may be especially beneficial for localized joint pain (Note that if you’re taking medication that carries a grapefruit warning, CBD may not be the right fit.).
