Hi @Mbuletza - great question and I am sure some members will be responding to you; however, I want to bring your attention to some of the top discussions were CBD was discussed as a method for treating pain. Feel free to check out these discussions and comment, as these are already on going discussions. Not each is in the RA group, but still may be of assistance as most of the conversations are about pain.
I also would recommend you join the chronic pain group by clicking here and clicking the Join Group button. I would also recommend posting your question in that group as well - That group is dedicated for anyone, no matter what the cause (RA, OA, lupus, etc.), who is dealing with chronic pain.

@Mbuletza how has the fetanyl patch worked for you? Did it help with pain? What about side-effects?

Yes it helps. It’s better than pills that have a roller coaster effect. It’s now been over 2 yrs on fentynal and the pain is mostly controlled but not eliminated. I don’t have any side effects that I’m aware of. I just worry because it is an opioid and the nature of RA is good and bad days. I’m just so tired of dealing with pain every day.

Hi @Mbuletza I started looking for some cbd products a while back as a solution to manage my mom's arthritic pain which has gotten worse over the years and so glad I came across CBD Infusion's products. Their cbd cream for pain is excellent stuff and works fast. This stuff has dramatically improved my mom's life as she can now take longer walks at the park and play with her grand kids. I got it at [link removed by moderator for violating community standards] - worth a try!

How are you doing? I thought I'd revive this older discussion as there's been more and more talk about CBD and its benefits in the medical community in recent years.
For those who may not know, CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound extracted from the hemp plant, a cousin of the marijuana plant. CBD is a naturally occurring substance used in products like oils or edibles which gives a feeling of relaxation or calm when consumed. Unlike its relative, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the major active ingredient in marijuana, CBD is not psychoactive. Research is still underway into the efficacy of topical CBD, but initial findings have shown that it may be helpful in managing chronic pain and inflammation.
Have any of you tried CBD for your RA? Has it worked for you? And for those that haven't, is it something you'd be interested in trying?
