A study in the European Journal of Pain concluded that “transdermal administration of CBD has long-lasting therapeutic effects without psychoactive side-effects.”
What does this mean? It means that millions of people can start living their life again without experience the excruciating pain of arthritis. The study showed that after 4 days of use, there was a significant reduction of pain.
In 2014 a review showed in preclinical studies there was evidence to support the use of CBD in the treatment of osteoarthritis.
A 2017 study found that CBD might be a safe and useful treatment for OA joint pain.
Of course more tests will be done in the coming years, but this is a great sign of potential relief from this debilitating disease.
