Even if you opt for the mildest strain, thanks to its full-spectrum profile, you’ll still get that powerful hit and the full ‘entourage’ effect of additional terpenes and flavouroids, making the investment worthwhile. Another thing we love about Blessed is how transparent the company is about its processes and lab results – a must when purchasing CBD.

Yet it’s the brand’s Bright Days that is the bestseller and it’s clear why. Incorporate just one drop into your life and you may just feel a gentle lift. Slight aches and pains felt unremarkable and quality of sleep was greatly enhanced. The bonus of coconut oil and the lime and juniper flavouring marks a pleasant, revitalising way to start the day. The oil contains five per cent CBD.

With all the oils above, you simply roll the topical formula onto your temples and wrists – ideally in venous areas – so the CBD can be absorbed. This is handy for those who dislike the taste or would prefer not to ingest. The higher 20 per cent concentration ensures that you will feel the full effects of the product with the optimum quantity of 40-60mg of pure CBD per day.

Use the tincture to dispense droplets under your tongue and hold there for 60 seconds before swallowing. This will help the CBD to enter your system and get to work faster.

The brand offers natural, peppermint, orange and wild cherry so you can choose your favourite flavour.

The flavour of Provacan is very strong and bitter, which takes a while to get used to – but it works wonderfully.

The oils were much thicker and darker in consistency than others I’ve tried, with a potent taste. The blue edition cannabis sativa strain worked an absolute treat, allowing my muscles and mind to completely relax and aiding deep, undisturbed sleep after taking around 5 drops.

It provided huge relief from physical pain and stress within around half an hour of taking 5 drops, allowing the body to completely relax. The oil is beautifully refined and you can find third party lab results on the company’s website, making this a brand you can trust.

Until recently, little guidance has been available for people with arthritis pain who were interested in CBD treatment. Depending on availability and interest, patients and their doctors had to decide on their own whether CBD was a reasonable option in each specific case. To a large degree that’s still true, but some guidelines have been published. Here’s one set of guidelines for people pursuing treatment with CBD that I find quite reasonable (based on recommendations from the Arthritis Foundation and a recent commentary published in the medical journal Arthritis Care & Research):

What’s the evidence it works? And what do experts recommend? Until recently, there’s been little research and even less guidance for people (or their doctors) interested in CBD products that are now increasingly legal and widely promoted.

Are there guidelines about the use of CBD for chronic arthritis pain?

Of course, there is anecdotal evidence and testimonials galore, including reports of dramatic improvement by people who tried CBD in its various forms (including capsule, liquid, topical, and spray) for their pain. But we are still waiting for well-designed, scientifically valid, and rigorous clinical trials (such as this one in progress) that are so badly needed to answer the question of just how helpful CBD may be to people with chronic arthritis pain.

Disclaimer:

If you have chronic arthritis pain, you may be wondering about cannabidiol (CBD) as a treatment. CBD, along with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other chemicals, is found in marijuana. But unlike THC, CBD is not “psychoactive” — that is, it does not cause the intoxication or high associated with marijuana use.

There is one definite downside: cost. Prices range widely but CBD products aren’t inexpensive, and depending on dose, frequency, and formulation, the cost can be considerable — I found one brand that was $120/month, and health insurance does not usually cover it.
