A survey conducted by Creaky Joints, an online arthiritis support organisation in affiliation with the Global Healthy Living Foundation, on over 1,000 people indicated that at least 57% of respondents had tried CBD to treat their joint pains. These results were also presented at the 2019 Annual European Congress of Rheumatology in Madrid.
The results collected by Creaky Joints also indicated that a large majority of the respondents suffered from rheumatoid arthritis (46%) or, osteoarthritis (22%), among other conditions such as fibromyalgia. Further to this, an indepedent survey conducted by the Arthiritis Foundation of over 2,600 patients showed that 80% of the patients were using CBD for their condition.
The use of CBD for arthritis and other joint pains comes as no surprise since research suggests that cannabinoids such as CBD, CBG and many more, work as powerful anti-inflammatory compounds for various conditions. In fact, a 2019 research paper published in Current Opinion in Rheumatology showed that CBD has the potenial to significantly improve rheumatoid arthritis.
