Is CBD the right choice for your arthritis pain?

Is CBD the right choice for your arthritis pain?

Arthritis is one of the most widespread health conditions in the United States today, affecting about one in four adults. Shanti Wellness topical and ingestible products cater to more than 54 million Americans affected. 

As May is arthritis awareness month, we wanted to turn our attention to pain and inflammation relief, a nasty and common condition affecting one in four Americans.  Because there is no known cure, living with arthritis often means treating the flare-ups of pain and inflammation through over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs, or physical therapy.  With the birth of legal and commercial cannabidiol, many sufferers are now choosing CBD topicals and oils for natural relief with no dependency or side effects.  While still unproven in human subjects due to a lack of large scale testing, CBD topicals have been found to effectively treat arthritis and the resulting pain and inflammation in animals. We hear from many of our customers suffering from arthritis that it works for them too! 

When choosing the right product for pain and inflammation, we recommend topical or oral supplements.  In terms of topicals, we recommend Shanti Soothe, a potent, high-CBD balm which can be rubbed directly into pain points any time for fast-acting relief. Soothe is made from all-natural ingredients including beeswax, coconut oil, lavender oil, eucalyptus oil, and nanoparticle hemp CBD oil.

If oral supplements are preferred, Shanti Relief is a gel capsule containing powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredients, including broad-spectrum hemp CBD oil (CBD rich), curcumin extract (turmeric), MCT oil, and beta-caryophyllene. 

Pain-busting movement

Walking is another excellent natural remedy for arthritis.  The CDC recommends brisk walking for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week to improve arthritis pain, fatigue, function, and quality of life.  With improving weather and still widespread lockdowns, there is no better time to start a walking program to improve overall health and wellbeing.
