Hemp as a treatment for muscles and joint pain

Hemp as a treatment for muscles and joint pain

You suffer from joint pain when there is inflammation of the ligaments, cartilage, tendons or the muscles. It is usually associated with one or the other form of arthritis  and it occurs in the joint. Your joint pain could vary from being a severe pain that is debilitating or just a mild discomfort.

Conditions that cause joint pain

Discomfort or pain in the joints is mostly a symptom of an underlying disease or condition. The most common component of joint pain is inflammation. Some of the conditions that include joint pain are:

  • Lyme disease
  • Cancer
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Injuries due to sprain or strain
  • Any kind of arthritis like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or degenerative arthritis

Why is joint pain caused?

The main focus when it comes to relieving the pain in your joints is to reduce the inflammation. An acute inflammation is your body’s response to an infection or injury. It is part of the body's healing process and you will see swelling, redness, pain and loss of joint mobility. Usually, such kind of acute inflammation is your body’s response to a surgery or an insect bite and only requires temporary pain relief.

If you are suffering from chronic inflammation on the other hand, this is due to an inflammatory disorder and you will find it in cases where a severe condition like arthritis or cancer is present.

Benefits of Hemp for joint pain

The hemp plant has several substances in it which fights inflammation and pain; it contains beta-caryophyllene which you find in culinary herbs. There have been many studies which show that cannabis can help maintain and prevent joint and arthritic pain.

  • Hemp prevents joint pain by inhibiting the breakdown of arthritic cartilage.
  • The cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant reduces inflammation and pain since it signals your brain to reduce the pain causing acid.
  • Cannabis also attaches itself to the pain receptors hence reducing pain signals. There is no proof yet that it repairs arthritis damage, but patients who have been using hemp topically or ingesting it have shown longer periods of remission.

Hemp treatment options

  • Hemp can be ingested in the form of tinctures, oils, root or seeds. The plant can also be made into tea or added to smoothies as well as other foods.
  • Topical hemp is made from either the root, seed or the whole plant. You will find serums, creams and massage oils which penetrate your skin to the cellular level. The C2 receptors send a signal urging the production of a protein which reduces the acid that causes inflammation.

Always talk to a healthcare professional before using hemp products since they could have contraindications with other medications or to know their side effects.
