According to the ancient medical books and the contemporary findings as well, medical cannabis is useful against chronic pain. The benefits of the use of cannabis for arthritis have been investigated for a long time in modern medicine and patients with rheumatoid arthritis claim that cannabis relieves pain and inflammation and helps them sleep better.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a severe long-lasting disease that is most evident on the connective tissue around the joints. Certain cannabis components, such as cannabidiol or the CBD oil, can relieve the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis.
The researchers have even managed to prove that these components do suppress inflammatory molecules, which are proven to be involved in cartilage erosion which is a process that occurs in patients with arthritis. Research studies have proved that cannabis affects the origin of the disease and patients have claimed that it reliefs the pain.
In this way, cannabis is believed to affect both the cause and the consequence of this severe disease.
