A write up in medical news today summed up how and why patients are using CBD to help treat their arthritis.

Cannabinoids such as CBD interact with the body's endocannabinoid system including the CB2 receptor, which plays a role in the immune system by managing pain and inflammation. This is why many researchers believe that cannabis and cannabis-based medications can be such an effective treatment for pain disorders. 

In number of varied animals studies, it has been suggested that CBD could help to treat arthritis but the evidence must continue with full scale research. Among the studies is a 2016 one published in the European Journal of Pain that found that transdermal CBD reduced inflammation and pain-related behaviours in rats with arthritis. The findings were significant because the popularity of transdermal patches and creams means that many patients will not have to inhale cannabis to find relief, and can therefore possibly replace current medications that cause more severe side effects.
