CBD is steadily gaining popularity as a natural approach to joint pain. One of more than one hundred cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant, CBD is natural and non-intoxicating, making it an excellent alternative to addictive pain medication.
Research suggests that CBD may have anti-inflammatory properties that could help with specific types of pain. Moreover, it’s believed that the cannabinoid might help ease joint pain in some situations, such as joint pain due to inflammatory arthritis, by reducing inflammation.
CBD can be administered both orally and topically, and both delivery methods have their uses for pain management. The best product often depends on personal preference when looking for CBD for joint pain.
Let’s discover how CBD can help with joint pain and look at PureKana’s CBD products that could help manage pain.
How CBD Can Help with Joint Pain
Scientists are still investigating how exactly CBD may reduce pain. However, evidence suggests that it may affect the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a cell-signaling system that plays an important part in regulating brain functions like mood, memory, and appetite. It also influences how we experience pain.
Researchers believe that CBD interacts with receptors in our ECS, specifically the immune system. When the CBD “talks” to these receptors, it improves our cells’ ability to respond to stimuli, thereby producing an anti-inflammatory response that brings down swelling and pain.
Another way CBD may exert its pain-relieving effects is through its interaction with our central nervous system. The central nervous system sends pain signals to the brain when it detects damage to nerves and cells. CBD could potentially calm and minimize this response, thereby mitigating pain.
That said, studies on CBD for joint pain are limited, and most that exist have been done on animals. For instance, a 2016 study reports that a daily dose of CBD gel helped reduce joint pain and inflammation in rats with arthritis. Human studies are needed to confirm if CBD has the same effect on people.
Nonetheless, anecdotal evidence suggests that many people have success using CBD for joint pain.
Our Top CBD Products for Joint Pain
PureKana offers a range of oral and topical CBD products that may be useful for joint pain. Oral CBD products, such as tinctures and capsules, are ingested and pass through the digestive system before the active compounds make their way into the body. Topical CBD, such as creams, are applied directly to the area of discomfort and pass into the skin.
Here is what you will find when shopping for CBD products for joint pain at PureKana.
PureKana Pain Relief CBD Topical 2000mg
A broad-spectrum formula packed with 2,000mg of CBD and 400mg of CBG, along with menthol and capsaicin, this topical supports healthy joints. All ingredients work together to provide enhanced anti-inflammatory effects, making our 2000mg pain relief topical an excellent option for joint pain. It’s one of the most potent CBD topicals around and has a cream-like consistency.
PureKana CBD Pain Relief Roll-On Gel 2000mg
Similar to our topical above, our Pain Relief Roll-On Gel contains menthol, capsaicin, 2,000mg of CBD, and 400mg of CBG. The difference is that it’s a gel rather than a cream and features a no-mess, roll-on applicator. The easy-glide roller-ball allows for quick and easy application to problem areas. It’s ideal for on-the-go use and for those who don’t want to get their hands full of cream. When applying the gel, you can use a light massaging action to ease general discomfort.
PureKana Topical CBD Cream 1500mg
If you’re looking for a less potent formula, try our 1,500mg Topical CBD Cream. It contains 1,500mg of CBD and an extra strength dose of menthol for added benefits. The menthol provides incredible relaxation properties and delivers a soothing sensation to areas of discomfort. Our cream formulation has no oily residue and can be easily applied to parts of the body that need it most.
PureKana Natural CBD Oil 5000mg
PureKana boasts some of the most potent CBD oils on the market. Our 5,000mg Natural CBD Oil is a supremely powerful CBD formula that may be helpful for joint pain. It’s an all-natural formulation that incorporates a potent dose of CBD with MCT oil and terpenes. It can be taken sublingually by administering a few drops under the tongue and holding it there for 30 to 60 seconds before swallowing.
Sublingual application means the CBD enters the bloodstream rapidly, and you can expect to feel the effects within 15 to 45 minutes. Alternatively, you can add the oil to foods or beverages; however, the CBD will take longer to exert its effects since it needs to be digested first.
PureKana Natural CBD Oil 2500mg
For those with a lower CBD tolerance or perhaps a minor case of joint pain, our 2,500mg Natural CBD Oil may be a better option. It’s half as potent as our 5,000mg formula but incorporates the same ingredients; CBD, MCT oil, and terpenes. Our 2,500mg and 5,000mg CBD oil concentrations are our strongest offerings and, therefore, often better suited for managing pain than our lower concentration formulas because they contain higher CBD levels.
PureKana CBD Capsules 40mg
Finally, our 40mg CBD Capsules are an excellent option for those seeking a tasteless and more convenient way to take CBD orally. Capsules provide a precise dose of CBD and can be easily incorporated into your daily routine. Each PureKana softgel capsule contains 40mg of full-spectrum cannabidiol. There are 30 capsules in each bottle, equating to a total CBD content of 1,200mg. You can take our capsules with a glass of water, as you would any other pill.
Final Thoughts: The Best CBD Products for Joint Pain
If you live with joint pain, you may have experienced how it can affect your quality of life, impacting sleep, mood, and more. Although more research is necessary, CBD shows potential use in joint pain. It’s believed that CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system to exert its pain-relieving effects. It can be used both orally and topically to manage pain, and PureKana has a range of both types of products that you may find useful. Depending on the severity of your pain and personal preferences, one or more of these products may be just what you need to mitigate pain.
