What is CBD? CBD is short for cannabidiol. CBD is a main compound found in both Cannabis and Hemp plants (1).
Does CBD Work for Arthritis? Research in animals has shown that CBD has anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties (2). Anecdotally, we have worked with hundreds of people to assist in relieving their discomfort from arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions.
Types of Arthritis:
Rheumatoid Arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition where a person’s immune system attacks their joints, causing inflammation. It commonly affects the hands and feet and leads to painful, swollen, and stiff joints (3).
Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that affects joint cartilage and bones, causing pain and stiffness. It often affects the hip, knee, and thumb joints (3).
What’s the most anti-inflammatory cannabanoid?
CBD, cannabidiol, and CBG, cannabigerol, have been known to provide highly anti-inflammatory affects, whereas THC, when used on its own, produces much lower anti-inflammatory relief (4). The best results for working with inflammation conditions will be through using Full Spectrum Oil drops and/or Full Spectrum topical salves.
CBD Oil vs CBD Salve
CBD Oil is a supplement you consume sublingually, or, under your tongue. Through this method, you digest concentrated CBD molecules, which then works systemically throughout your whole system. This is how CBD Oil works as a tool to reprogram your brain to process your stress, pain, and emotional systems in a more functional way.
CBD Salve, on the other hand, works specifically with concentrated areas. By applying a CBD Rich Salve to an area where you are experiencing discomfort, you are then sending CBD molecules into that specific cannabinoid receptor located at the site of the afflicted area. This then sends signals to your brain to send extra energy to those specific areas to work to relieve that discomfort.

Why both CBD Oil and CBD Salve?
CBD Oil works within your overall system, whereas CBD Salve works with concentrated areas. CBD Oil can oftentimes take up to 3 months for the homeostatic affects to be realized. Because of this, we highly recommend amplifying your routine with a CBD Salve to help instantly relieve your pain. Additionally, the combination of CBD Oil and CBD Salve will work to send extra cannabinoids from the internal CBD Oil you’re consuming, to that affected area. This sends extra homeostatic energy to that specific pain point, while simultaneously working to balance out your whole system.
