So many people want to use topical CBD products like cremes, salves, lotions, etc… for joint inflammation but have no idea how much to use. Everyone’s body is different, and everyone metabolizes it differently. However, a recent study dug into this on a more in depth analysis.
This study by the National Institutes of Health examined the efficacy of transdermal CBD for reduction in inflammation and pain. It assessed any positive effects, as well as adverse effects in adjuvant-induced monoarthritic knee joint models. The rats had joint circumference and immune cell invasion measured to help indicate the level of inflammation.
So, what did it find? Most importantly, it was shown that CBD significantly reduced joint swelling, limb posture scores, “immune cell infiltration, thickening of the synovial membrane in a dose-dependent manner.” Analysis of the spinal cord and dorsal root ganglia revealed dose dependent reductions of biomarkers for inflammation.
How much CBD were these rats given? Results showed that 6.2 and 62mg/day were effective doses. Interestingly, The inflammation was not reduced significantly with higher doses of CBD. The data indicated that “topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviours and inflammation without evident side-effects.”
So, what this means is that they found the optimal dose for CBD is 6.2mg’s per day to significantly reduce the inflammation that was previously present. Amazingly, almost 50 million (22.2%) of adult Americans over 18 were diagnosed with arthritis between just 2007 and 2009. By 2030, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are predicting an increase to 67 million.
Although this evidence is anecdotal, there is definitely promise for those struggling with rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis – the most commonly diagnosed types of arthritis.
