What Causes Joint Pain?

Joints form and cushion the connections between bones. They provide support and enable movement for areas that bend such as elbows, knees, wrists, and hips. Damage from disease or injury can cause joint pain and limit mobility. According to the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 15 million Americans report experiencing severe joint pain. Knee pain is one of the most common complaints, followed by shoulder and hip pain.

*If you have debilitating joint pain or a medical condition, you should contact a physician to evaluate your treatment options

How Does CBD for Pain Work?

Joint pain is recognized by receptors in the body that initiate a response. The result is the feeling of pain. Anandamide is an endocannabinoid that helps to reduce the feeling of pain or discomfort. It is also called “the bliss molecule.” Anandamide can also be found in chocolate, which may explain why is a comfort food for many. CBD can help with joint pain because it allows more anandamide to exist in the body at one time by holding back enzymes that reduce the amount of anandamide in the body. Having more anandamide can reduce the perception of pain and also boost your mood.

Antioxidants help to reduce joint inflammation by fighting off free-radicals in the body. CBD has known antioxidant properties that can assist with joint inflammation. The U.S. Government patented CBD as an antioxidant and neuroprotectant over 25 years ago, though hemp general cannabis use has existed for centuries.
