Cbd for arthritis pain. Here’s what you should know

Is it legal to sell cbd products? Cbd products made from hemp are now not listed as schedule i drugs under federal controlled substances act. But they remain in a legal gray area. There are ongoing changes at both the federal and state levels which will hopefully clarify the laws and regulations that apply to cbd-based products.

Should cbd be tried?

Without high-quality clinical studies on cbd and arthritis doctors are not able to predict who may benefit, what dose, and how it is administered, as well as who may not benefit, and who should stay away. There is some agreement on a few points.

• Cbd is not meant to be used in place of a disease-modifying treatment for inflammation arthritis.

• Before using cbd, patients should consult their physician who treats their arthritis. They can also discuss the history of cbd and other options. Together, they can go over what worked, what did not work, how to make a trial run, the things to watch out for and when to return in order to evaluate the results. Keep a log of all symptoms and doses to keep track.

• Cbd products are often expensive, especially if they’re used for a prolonged period. Make sure you are 100% certain that the product is having a positive impact on your symptoms to avoid spending too much.

What product type should i consider buying?

Cbd can be taken orally. It can also be applied topically to the skin. Each one has its advantages and disadvantages.

With the mouth. Any cbd that is taken in capsules, food and liquid, is engrossed into the digestive. Dosing is difficult because of slow absorption, delayed onset of effects (up to two hours), unknown side effects of stomach acids and recent meals.

Capsules are safe and effective for daily use once the dose has been determined. Experts warn against edible cbd, such as cookies and chewables. The dosing of these edibles is unpredictable and they are tempting to children, but not in childproof containers. Consumption edibles should not be understood or affected by children.

Cbd can also absorbed directly through the bloodstream. This is done by holding the liquid from a spray/tincture (a liquid dosed with a dropper) under your tongue (sublingually), for 60 to120 seconds. The taste of cbd may not be pleasant. The effects can be felt in 15 to 45 minute.
