CBD for Rheumatoid Arthritis
CBD Tincture Tranquil Mint 1000mgConsidering that RA is an autoimmune disease, and that CBD interacts with the CB2 receptors, responsible for regulating the immune system and helping with pain and inflammation, we can see how CBD can work to alleviate symptoms.
In an unrelated study on irritable bowel syndrome, an autoimmune disease that attacks the healthy bacteria in the gut and ultimately degrades the intestine. Researchers found that there is a mechanism within the body that seems to be controlled by the CB2 receptor, which acts as a “back door” for white blood cells to enter into an affected area.
What was interesting is that patients with IBS seemed to have the “back door” open, allowing more white blood cells to enter into the affected area. When the patients consumed CBD, the backdoor was closed. What was important is that similar mechanisms are located on every major organ in the body. This means that CBD can have profound affect in autoimmune disorders. Rheumatoid Arthritis being one of them.
CBD will help regulate autoimmune functions, reducing the white blood cells and reducing the assault on the body. Additionally, it will reduce pain and inflammation.CBD Tincture Tranquil Mint 1000mg
How to Effectively Use CBD for Rheumatoid Arthritis
Depending on the severity of your condition, it is important to scale up your CBD intake. We recommend utilizing Full Spectrum Liposomal CBD softgels, which would provide a more consistent dose. However, using tinctures or even edibles can work in this instance.
If you’re using a tincture, you’ll want to place 3-5 drops in the morning under the tongue and absorb it sublingually. This will send the CBD into the blood stream and will provide relief within 15-20 minutes. Additionally, utilizing a portable vaporizer can also help for quick relief when there are flares of pain. Simply take 2-3 deep puffs of your vaporizer, hold the vapor for up to 3 seconds and slowly inhale.
Heavy doses of CBD will also be required. Always talk to your doctor prior to utilizing any of these methods.

Cannabidiol also promotes neurogenesis, meaning that it can help repair any damaged nerves. This isn’t 100% the case for everyone that consumes CBD, however there is evidence to suggest that it does help with these functions.
Using CBD for Fibromyalgia

Post-Surgery Joint Pain
