What Is Arthritis?
This is the most common type of arthritis where you see cartilage breaking down causing bones to rub together. Joint damage caused over the long term. The joint damage could also be from torn cartilage, dislocation or ligament injuries. Some of the most common symptoms of osteoarthrosis are of course inflammation, pain, feeling stiff and tenderness.
Rheumatoid, on the other hand, is autoimmune arthritis and one of the most common. The cause is because of the immune system not functioning correctly which causes pain and swelling in the wrist area, hands and feet, and small joints. Rheumatoid is caused when your body sends inflammation to certain parts of your body to attack foreigners such as viruses and bacterial. In the case of this autoimmune, your body goes out of control and mistakes your own system and sends inflammation to healthy tissue. The inflammation is sent to your body causing joint pain and swelling.
What is CBD:
Studies that suggest CBD will help arthritis
What CBD product should I use?
If you are at the point you want to now try CBD for your arthritis and need a starting point in regards to product selection, let's talk about that. There are a couple of great options to choose from when you begin your journey with CBD. You have both the option of systemic treatment such as a CBD oil tincture (oral drops) or a localized approach such as a balm or a lotion.
CBD does not give an intoxicating effect or a high. THC is the cannabinoid that you are probably familiar with, this would give you an intoxicating effect in higher dosages. All of the tinctures we offer here at ChilliwackCBD do not contain more than .03% THC which is FAR below what you would need to induce any intoxicating effects.
The tincture bottle has a glass dropper. you will fill the dropper up with the amount of liquid you need and then you would place the liquid under your tongue. Leave the liquid under your tongue for 60 seconds so it can absorb into the blood vessels in your mouth and then simply swallow. You can add the liquid into food products or drinks but it's less effective because your body has to digest it leading the poorer absorption over the oral route.
Another great question for anyone starting out. The goal is to use as little as needed to relieve whichever symptoms you are trying to find relief from. We suggest starting with a few drops to test sensitivity and then from that point slowly increase the drops over day/weeks. Once you find a dosage that works for you, you stay at that dosage. It really comes down to trial and error at the beginning. CBD effects usually last 4-6 hours so dosing multiple times a day may be an option for some people.
Can I use too much?
Not really. You cannot overdose on CBD but because it's expensive enough, to begin with, the goal is to use as little as possible to allow you to get as much use out of the product for as long as you can.
Which MG strength do I start with?
This is another question we get asked a lot. Our tinctures range from 300mg all the way up to 2000mg. The higher the MG, typically the better value you get in the long run. I usually suggest to people to start with 1000mg. This bottle should last you at least a month or two when starting out to figure out what dosage works best for you.
We have many options but the specific tinctures we sell the most of here is either the 1000MG CBDFX or the Coast 1000MG. Both are good options.
