Let´s look at how CBD can help for Osteoarthritis. Arthritis is inflammation and swelling of the joints, the area where the bones connect. Which support the body and help maintain mobility. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and is caused by “wear and tear” or prolonged use (the other type of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, is caused by an overactive immune response in the body). In some cases, it may have a genetic basis.
This long-term use results in the destruction of hyaline cartilage, a firm connective tissue found in the joints. And prevents bones from rubbing against each other and damaging each other. The joints of the body most commonly affected by osteoarthritis are the hands, knees, hips and spine, and the symptoms include pain, swelling and stiffness.
Osteoarthritis can also lead to shorter survival, directly and as a result of the treatments required for management. For example, bleeding from the stomach caused by NSAIDs, a type of over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drug.
According to the researchers, “targeted CB2 receptors may have a therapeutic potential for the treatment of pain”. Therapies that stimulate CB2 receptors, including endocannabinoids, phytocannabinoids or synthetic cannabinoids, may be useful for this purpose.
These results not only add to previous evidence suggesting that CBD therapies may be useful in the treatment of pain (eg, chronic and neuropathic pain, as well as pain resulting specifically from osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis). And inflammation, but, according to the researchers. Also “provides a neurobiological basis for the analgesic effects of the CB2 receptor” (ie, it is unlikely that the effect of CBD therapies on pain is simply a result of the emotional regulation).
Since the prescription of opioids is an option for pain management in patients with osteoarthritis for whom standard. Therapies are not optimally effective or are contraindicating (ie, should be avoid). The use of opioids can cause serious negative side effects, abuse , dependence and death. The use of CBD may partially replace (as a complementary therapy) or completely the use of opioids, in some cases, patients may benefit from access to alternative options for safe pain management such as CBD therapies.
CBD therapies have a favorable safety profile. Patients with osteoarthritis have a significantly reduced quality of life as a result of their symptoms. And the burden for patients translates into great financial losses. Therefore, it is essential to find safe alternative ways to control the symptoms of osteoarthritis in patients who do not experience optimal relief from standard therapies, or who experience significant negative side effects from standard therapies that could be partially replaced with the use of CBD .
