Have you ever considered taking CBD oil for arthritis pain?
CBD (short for cannabidiol) is an active chemical compound derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component that creates euphoria, CBD is not intoxicating.
How does CBD help with arthritis pain?
There are more than 100 types of arthritis, and pain is a common feature of them all.
One example includes rheumatoid arthritis. This is an automotive condition where a person’s immunity system attacks their joints and causes inflammation. It mostly affects the hands and feet and results in painful, swollen, and stiff joints.
CBD oil can help slow down (if not stop) the progression of rheumatoid arthritis, preventing permanent joint damage over time, and reduce inflammation.
Osteoarthritis is a type of degenerative arthritis that affects the joint cartilage and bones. Like rheumatoid arthritis, it leads to pain and stiffness but typically affects the joints in the hips, knees, and thumbs.
When you take CBD oil for arthritis, it affects the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain and immune system and reduces pain.
The benefits of using CBD oil for arthritis
Though there is insufficient evidence to prove CBD’s effectiveness for arthritis, animal studies suggest that the cannabinoid has pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties.
People who have used CBD oil for arthritis report noticeable pain relief, reduced inflammation, and improved sleep.
Another great thing about CBD oil is that you can either place it directly under your tongue or mix it with food and drink. Adding a drop beneath the tongue means the CBD gets into the bloodstream faster, allowing the effects to be felt sooner.
But no matter how you take CBD oil for arthritis, you needn’t worry about your state of mind changing as our products contain legal amounts of THC (less than 0.3%).

How long does it take for CBD oil to alleviate joint pain?
How long it will take to feel the effects of CBD oil for arthritis can vary from person to person.
Consuming CBD oil sublingually, by placing a few drops directly under the tongue for at least 30 seconds to a minute before swallowing, is by far one of the quickest ways to reap the benefits of CBD.
Unlike other methods (i.e. eating edibles, wearing transdermal patches, or vaping CBD e-liquids), this allows the mucous membranes in the mouth to absorb the CBD – bypassing the digestive system and entering the bloodstream much faster. Though the taste may not be pleasant to all, effects can often be felt within 15-45 minutes.

Although we pride ourselves on offering the safest, most effective, and affordable CBD oil for joint pain, CBD may interact with some drugs commonly taken to ease arthritis pain. Therefore, we recommend talking to your doctor before you start using CBD oil for arthritis, to make sure it’s safe for you.
Are there any side effects?
CBD oil for arthritis pain is safe to use. However, some people may experience mild side effects, including:
- Diarrhoea and nausea
- Changes in appetite
- Weight fluctuations
- Low blood pressure
- Dry mouth
Research suggests that these side effects mostly occur when taking CBD in high doses (over 300mg).
