Chronic arthritis is affecting 52.5 million adults today. Statistics show that 1 out of 250 children have been diagnosed with arthritis in UK. The numbers are expected to increase. In conventional ways, the cure for arthritis is still unavailable. Cannabis shows a promising chance to help repair arthritic joints. Among the aged people, cannabis is popular due to its pain-reducing and inflammatory properties. It is found in a study that there is a high level of CB2 receptors present in the joint tissue of arthritis patients. In those joints, use of cannabis has performed fighting inflammation by activating the pathways of CB2 receptors. McDougall’s research has proved that cannabis molecules can connect themselves to nerve receptors and control the firing of pain signals in the joint.
Cannabidiol (CBD) can be used for immune system modulation which means it has the ability to help in autoimmune condition like rheumatoid arthritis. To replace some addictive pharmaceutical drugs, cannabis oil can be used. The drugs cause more number of problems than the number they solve in long term.

Micro-dosing using a tincture is best suited. MCDSA supported cannabis oil solutions are good organic Co2 extracted medical grade oil concentrates. Each drop of cannabinoid is 2mg, where 1000mg extract is present in 10ml MCT and a bottle consists 500 drops. Suggested treatment would be 5–10 drops of CBD oil with 3 times a day. In the form of cannabis oils, medical cannabis has been proved to reduce the symptoms of all types of Arthritis. Degenerative Arthritis, Inflammatory Arthritis, Infectious Arthritis, Metabolic Arthritis all has shown reduction with the use of the CBD oil. That is why using CBD oil is better.
