Have you or someone you know ever dealt with joint pain? If you answered yes, you are not alone. According to the Arthritis Foundation 54 millions adults are affected with some form of arthritis, with that number expected to rise by 49% by the year 2040. Although it can be debilitating, there are many non prescription, natural remedies to combat the pain.

Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids react with two different receptors in the body, CB1 and CB2.

CBD (cannabidiol) indirectly affects CB2 receptors by encouraging the body to make more of its very own cannabinoids. This causes a positive effect on the body’s pain and inflammation responses. CBD can have many positive health benefits, including relief from joint pain and inflammation.
