What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is a hot topic for Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferers with very good reason. I thought I’d address it in it’s very own article. There is only one thing you need to know about CBD oil and Rheumatoid Arthritis and that is that it works! Don’t just take my word for it, millions of RA patients around the world swear by it. In fact, many RA sufferers will tell you that it is the ONLY thing they use for the Rheumatoid Arthritis treatment.
CBD oil is a product that is derived from cannabis known as cannabiodiol. Even though it comes from marijuana plants, it doesn’t create a “high” effect or any form of intoxication’. – Healthline.com
Is it scientifically proven?
YES! The effectiveness of CBD oil for Rheumatoid Arthritis is supported by science. A study published in the journal Pain in December 2017 provided evidence that CBD Oil decreases pain and joint inflammation. The study also provides evidence that CBD oil aids with depression, anxiety and is known to come with little to no side effects.
There you have it! CBD Oil is supported by science and successfully used by millions of RA sufferers around the world. If you have RA pain, depression, anxiety, side effects to your medication and trouble sleeping then you NEED to start using CBD oil NOW.
What CBD Oil should I use?
There are many varieties of CBD oil on the market. The proven effective CBD oils are those that are organic and cultivated from U.S. grown cannabis. Be very careful of the cheaper varieties that predominately contain other properties such as hemp oil with little to no CBD component. Hemp oil, although full of nutrients, will do very little for Rheumatoid Arthritis pain. Often the terms CBD oil and hemp oil are used interchangeably when they are two different things. Look for organic CBD oil that contains both hemp and CBD compounds (cannabidiol and terpenes) in order to get the full benefits of the hemp plant.
CBD oil is also not the same as THC. THC should be avoided as it is banned in many states and workplaces because of it’s psychoactive compound. CBD is completely legal, natural, comes with no side-effects and no psychoactive compound.
One brand of CBD oil that I have absolutely fallen in love with is Joy Organics. I purchased their amazing Mama Bundle. You cannot go wrong with this one!
