Treating Arthritis with Medical Marijuana

Does Medical Marijuana help with Arthritis?

Research has shown a direct link between the body’s endocannabinoid system during the development of arthritis as well as its role as a therapeutic target. The CB2 receptor, which has an anti-inflammatory effect when activated, is believed to play a critical role. Medical Marijuana activates that receptor, leading to a reduction in joint pain. Arthritis is a painful condition and is the number one cause of disability in adults.

This is when bones start to rub against one another, leading to the pain and discomfort. While arthritis can form naturally, there are several factors which can increase the likelihood.
