10 Home Remedies for Arthritis and Joint Pain

Looking for home remedies for arthritis and joint pain? We have the scoop for you. These remedies are all natural and organic.

For those who suffer from arthritis and joint pain and don’t want to take prescription medicines, cannabis has been proven to be effective treatments in alleviating joint pain and treating other symptoms of arthritis. According to this article posted at Leafly.com, “Cannabis is gaining popularity as a treatment for arthritis. Cannabis can ease pain and reduce swelling without the potentially life-threatening side effects caused by frequent NSAID or opiate use.” Leafly.com also posted a list of their recommended cannabis strains that work best for treating pain.

Here are 10 home remedies for arthritis and joint pain that include some cannabis infused suggestions along with other remedies.

1. CBD oil

This article from Leafly points to the research done primarily on CBD oil as an effective treatment for cannabis. This research focused on non-psychoactive cannabinoids, but so far, his findings has shown that cannabis molecules can attach themselves to nerve receptors and control the firing of pain signals in the joint.

CBD oil can be taken in pill form or administered as a tincture placed under one’s tongue or administered in food. Check out the hemp oil and other hemp based products from Green Garden Gold. Since their founding in 2014, they contract with farm growers who monitor all aspects of production and source with those refiners dedicated to high purity standards. As these products contain only CBD, they do not have any psychoactive effects.

2. Cannabis Infused Topical Creams

Applying a cannabis infused cream directly on the skin often reduces pain and swelling rapidly. Optimal results are reported when using a cannabis cream containing CBD and THC as the THC helps ignite the cannabinoids for a more powerful synergistic effect. As the cannabis cream is applied topically and not ingested, patients cannot get high no matter how much cream they apply. For traveling in those areas where cannabis is not legal, pack along a CBD only cream unless one has an approved marijuana medical card. This article
on the benefits of coconut oil contains a recipe for making a cannabis infused topical cream using coconut oil. Also, Green Garden Gold makes a hemp massage cream and salve.

3. Juicing Raw Cannabis

Some anecdotal reports have noted success in reducing pain by drinking raw cannabis. This recipe from Leafy.com provides instructions on how to make a smoothie using raw cannabis, sweet potatoes, and pears.

4. Add Tumeric

Curcumin, which is the active ingredient in this popular curry spice, can be very effective in alleviating the problems associated with arthritis. Consider taking this along with a high dose (4,000-8,000 mg) of organic fish oil.

5. Feeling the burn with chili pepper

Help ease pain by applying chili pepper over one’s joints. Be careful though as Capsaicin, the active ingredient in chili pepper, can burn a bit when applied topically.

6. Eat Healthy

Going gluten-free can help reduce inflammation. Also, grass-fed meat is higher in Omega-3 fat acids and contains creatine that can help with mobility issues as it increases muscle mass in people with rheumatoid arthritis. Another healthy option is seafood like tuna and salmon that’s high in Omega-3.

7. Take supplements

Omega-3 supplements (containing EPA, DHA and GLA), glucosamine, chondroitin, and probiotics have been shown to be effective in reducing inflammation.

8. Soak Away the Pain

A warm soak can help provide full body relief from stress, inflammation, and pain. Try Empower BodyCare’s soaking salts infused with cannabis. These salts come in a black label version infused with THC and CBD only white label version.

9. Meditate to reduce stress

Arthritis can flare up when under stress. So taking time to breathe and center oneself can help reduce flare ups.

10. Engage in low-impact exercise

Walking, cycling, swimming and other low impact exercises can help get one’s joints moving to keep the body limber and avoid stiffness in the joints. Also, these excesses can help one lose weight, as weight gain has been shown to exacerbate arthritis symptoms.
