How to Use CBD for Arthritis and Joint Pain

Cannabis naturally supplies the body with pain relief, increased dexterity, and improvement of life overall. It’s time to say goodbye to pharmaceutical medication with an endless list of side effects and say hello to the proven medical wonder that is marijuana. Whether you choose to smoke it, eat it or use it topically, you’re guaranteed to feel relief from chronic joint pain with this plant-based method.

What is CBD?

It’s a cannabinoid compound that focuses on the healing effects for consumers, with zero psychoactive effects present. CBD is mostly used for pain relief, to ease mental illness such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, and to aid in the treatment of mild to several health conditions. The wide variety of uses for CBD seems to be infinite, going far beyond the realm of simply relieving pain.

Why Does CBD Work?

The CBD cannabinoid positively affects your immune system, making it ideal to treat arthritis, other joint pain and inflammation. Studies have shown that CBD, and cannabis in general, fights inflammation in the joint through the activation of CB2 receptor pathways in the brain.

But CBD isn’t the only chronic pain fighter when talking about cannabis. THC, the compound in cannabis responsible for the psychoactive effects, has also been shown to treat chronic pain. Cannabinoids prevent the transmission of pain while reducing inflammation, which are both important factors when treating joint issues like arthritis. On top of reducing pain, THC helps to ease the anxiety and depression that can come with dealing with an illness. This is particularly true with illnesses that limit mobility.

Various Methods to Relieve Joint Pain

Topical Application

CBD infused lotions, oils and ointments are a great way to provide targeted relief to aching joints. While it might take a while for the CBD to work its magic, you can expect the pain relief to last for several hours after it’s been properly absorbed into the skin. Make sure to be generous with your portions! We recommend using Kurativ Premium CBD 2000mg Full Spectrum or THC Free, Pain Relief Topical Cream.

Oil Tincture and Pills

Tinctures and CBD pills are discreet ways of obtaining relief for chronic pain, especially on the go. After carefully reviewing your dosage guide, apply a few drops or your desired amount of CBD oil under your tongue and you should be good to go for the next several hours. CBD pills will take longer to become effective as they have to break down and digest, so be sure to be patient when waiting for your result and don’t consume multiple pills back to back. For chronic Arthritis and Joint Pain, we recommend Kurativ’s Full Spectrum oil, and/or Kurativ’s CBD/CBG Full Spectrum oil.


In some people’s opinion, more so for smokers or ex-smokers, vaping CBD is a common and most convenient way to get CBD (and THC) into your system. Inhaling, however, won’t target the specific areas that may need the relief quickly, which is where our Kurativ CBD Pain-Relief Creams come into play.
