The Arthritis Foundation has just released its first CBD Guide for Adults with Arthritis.  CBD, or cannabidiol, a plant-based compound, is becoming more popular among people with arthritis seeking to ease chronic joint pain. The Arthritis Foundation wrote in its guidelines, “The Arthritis Foundation is aware of the growing popularity and availability of CBD-based products. Industry reports show that people with arthritis are among the top buyers, and pain is the leading reason for purchase.” They also stated in a recent news release, “We are intrigued by the potential of CBD to help people find pain relief and are on record urging the FDA to expedite the study and regulation of these products.” The Arthritis Foundation also stated, “While currently there is limited scientific evidence about CBD’s ability to help ease arthritis symptoms, and no universal quality standards or regulations exist, we have listened to our constituents and consulted with leading experts to develop these general recommendations for adults who are interested in trying CBD.”
