Which is the best CBD product for pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Asked 3 years ago
Can someone advise me on what the best CBD product is for RA. Should I use a balm/salve, rub on the oil itself, or consume it? How are CBD and Rheumatoid Arthritis related?

CBD anti-inflammatory effects could help to slow down or stop the progress of Rheumatoid arthritis (R.A) which may cause permanent damage to the joints. CBD mechanism of action is to activate the CB1 and CB2 receptors thereby reducing pain and inflammation.
CBD oil comes in several forms. You can take CBD through your mouth or apply it directly on the spot you feel the pain. If the pain is not spread throughout the body, you might want to apply it directly, or mixed with a lotion on the spot you feel the pain.
Some CBD products come with a high amount of THC which is prohibited in some countries, although some persons who have used CBD with THC claim it provides faster relief than CBD with low THC. However, it is important to state that THC comes with several side effects which include dry or bloodshot eyes, hypothermia, dry mouth, difficulty in sleeping, dizziness, racing heartbeat, etc.
When taking CBD oil, you must start with a very low dosage. You can start with a full spectrum of about 20mg per day, and then, increase the dose with time till you get your required results. Also, learn to read the label and see the contents of the CBD oil you're using.
CBD products can affect the potency of some drugs, so you must see a CBD-friendly specialist before deciding on how you'll take your CBD product.

CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in a cannabis plant. For many years, humans have utilized this compound in managing specific types of pain. It has anti-inflammatory properties making it suitable for this.
Pain caused by RA may affect your daily life but worry no more; consumption of the right CBD product may offer you the relief you need. With many dishonest CBD dealers out there, you have to be cautious when purchasing your product to alleviate the pain. Before purchasing, consider the following:
- Are there third-party lab results?
- Does it contain less than 0.3% THC?
- Does it contain any additives and heavy metals?
Modes of consumption
Depending on your preference, you can consume CBD either orally or topically. Topical CBD, for instance, oils, seeps through the skin directly into the bloodstream. On the other hand, oral CBD, such as gummies, passes through the digestive system, where it's absorbed into your body.
