CBD Joints Basics
Joint Pain: Causes, Symptoms and Management
Joint pain is a relatively common condition, particularly among older generations. It can be caused by various factors, including injury, overuse or a medical condition, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia. It can also produce a range of symptoms which can vary in nature, frequency and severity. While it may be possible to manage these symptoms, it’s best to consult a medical professional for advice.
What is joint pain?
Joint pain typically involves discomfort, bruising or swelling in one or more joints. It can occur in any part of the joint, including bone, cartilage, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Common types of joint pain include knee pain, hip pain, hand pain, and shoulder pain. The pain can be mild and occur only after certain activities, such as exercise, or it can be more severe and constant.
Joints commonly affected by pain
Joint pain can affect any of the body’s joints, and more than one joint at a time. Joints commonly affected include shoulders, wrists, hands, hips, spine, knees and feet.
Who is more likely to suffer from joint pain?
Our chances of experiencing joint pain increase as we age. This is because our joints become more vulnerable to pain or inflammation after decades of use, and we are more likely to suffer from injuries and other medical conditions which can contribute to joint pain. Therefore, older adults and those with conditions such as arthritis, bursitis and fibromyalgia are more likely to suffer from joint pain.
In addition, people who repeatedly use a muscle, are overweight or suffer from stress are also more at risk of experiencing joint pain.
What are the main symptoms of joint pain?
Common symptoms of joint pain include:
- A red, swollen, hot, bruised or tender area around the joint
- Stiffness or pain when moving the joint
- Loss of mobility in the joint
See a medical professional if:
- You are experiencing any of the above symptoms
- The pain is preventing you from performing certain activities
- The pain is getting worse
How to diagnose joint pain
Joint pain can be difficult to diagnose. A medical professional will be best placed to perform a physical examination and provide a diagnosis.
How to ease joint pain: Lifestyle tips
Here are a few tips which may help to ease joint pain:
- Rest the affected joint
- Take a warm bath or shower
- Gently stretch or massage the muscles around the joint
- Try light, low-impact exercise such as walking or hydrotherapy
- Take painkillers after consulting your doctor
- Do not completely stop moving the joint

Joint Pain: Could CBD help?
While research on CBD is still in its infancy, early studies indicate that it could offer a wide range of potential benefits. A small number of studies have looked specifically at the effects of CBD on both pain and joint pain and found promising results; however, more human research is needed to confirm the initial findings.
How does CBD work?
CBD works by influencing the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a cell-signalling network that regulates vital processes and keeps the body in a balanced state (homeostasis).
CBD is thought to support the function of the ECS indirectly by preventing the breakdown of endocannabinoids – cannabinoids produced by the body which act as messengers in the ECS. By increasing endocannabinoid levels, CBD may help the ECS to regulate pain, inflammation and other processes more efficiently, maintaining a healthy and balanced internal state.

CBD and pain
Preliminary research suggests that CBD could support pain relief. According to a 2018 review of research into CBD and pain, CBD regulates the perception of pain by affecting a range of receptors within the body. It also inhibits the uptake of anandamide, an endocannabinoid which is linked to increased pain tolerance.

CBD oil and arthritis related discomfort
CBD could support relief from arthritis and inflammation. In one animal study, CBD was applied to rats. By the end of the study, there were improvements in joint swelling and limb posture. Topical CBD could potentially relieve pain and inflammation caused by arthritis, without evident side effects.
CBD is also growing in popularity among people with arthritis. According to a survey, 79% of over 2,600 surveyed arthritis patients use CBD, have used it in the past or are considering using it. Of those currently using CBD, 87% reported they use it to help manage their arthritis symptoms.

CBD and recovery
Sleep is essential for the body to repair/rebuild muscle. CBD is thought to have a calming effect on the nervous system, which could aid a good night’s sleep. Studies found that CBD can improve sleep quality in adults.
For people looking to support their sleep, ingestible CBD products such as oils or may be more suitable, as these are absorbed into the bloodstream. People looking for relief from tired or aching joints or muscles may find CBD balms more effective, as these provide targeted, localised effects.

CBD and joint pain: Considerations
