Joints For Joints: Cannabis And Joint Pain

Chronic joint pain is a widespread problem with many potential sources. While it isn't always easy to tell what exactly causes chronic joint pain, the Mayo Clinic suggests that the two most common causes are arthritis and arthralgia. For some, this chronic pain is manifested as a dull, aching pain that lasts for long periods of time, creating much annoyance and discomfort. For others, chronic pain can be absolutely debilitating, interfering with the ability to work or carry on with day-to-day activities.

A 2011 study conducted by the University of Alberta found that roughly 19% of Canadians reported suffering from chronic pain, with arthritis cited as the most prominent reason. Because there is no cure for arthritis, or for chronic joint pain in general, people who suffer from these pains are limited in treatment options.

In some cases, over the counter medications like acetaminophen and ibuprofen tend to help, but in more severe cases, prescription painkillers may be the only way to alleviate pain. These narcotics, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, and codeine, are generally helpful for chronic pain patients who use the medications correctly. However, they are not natural substances; they are synthesized medications. As such, many patients are wary of using these prescription painkillers due to the risk of dependence and addiction to chemicals.
 

The Public Health Agency reported that, in 2017, there were at least 2,923 deaths related to opioid overdose. In many cases, people begin taking their prescribed painkillers as directed. Over time, however, their bodies build up tolerances to the drugs, requiring more to achieve the same effect. This is a slippery slope; as people take more narcotics, they become dependent on the drugs and could experience full physical addiction, needing the drugs to function or experiencing dangerous withdrawal symptoms without them.

Cannabis: A Natural Alternative

People have used cannabis medicinally for thousands of years, particularly in the treatment and management of chronic pain. Cannabis is a natural substance, rather than the synthesized chemical compounds present in prescription painkillers that can lead to opioid dependence, addiction, overdose, and death.
 

The primary active compounds in cannabis are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). To put it simply, THC is the compound most responsible for the "high" that accompanies cannabis use, while CBD tends to provide similar medicinal uses without the euphoria. Some strains of cannabis are higher in THC content, while others are contain more CBD.

Both THC and CBD have been used successfully in the treatment of chronic pain. However, some people are more sensitive to THC and may find the euphoric high uncomfortable, or may experience side effects like paranoia and restlessness. Because CBD is a non-psychoactive compound, it still provides the same medical benefits without the high.

Is Cannabis Effective for Treating Joint Pain?

Research published in 2008 in the Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management journal analyzed numerous studies conducted between the late 1980s and 2007. From these studies, the researchers concluded that CBD is extremely effective for treating chronic, difficult-to-treat pain. Researchers also determined that the use of CBD in pain management does not create the adverse side effects that occasionally accompany the use of prescription painkillers.
 

A study published in the June 1, 2017 edition of Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research found that cannabis is extremely effective in the treatment of chronic pain. 2,897 medical cannabis patients were interviewed for the research. According to the study, "81% [of respondents] 'strongly agreed/agreed' that taking cannabis by itself was more effective at treating their condition than taking cannabis with opioids." The patients in this study also overwhelmingly reported that cannabis alone was just as effective, if not more effective, than the use of prescription painkillers to manage pain, without the adverse effects.
 

On June 21, 2018, the Senate passed Bill C-45, also known as the Cannabis Act, and the full legalization of cannabis in Canada went into effect on October 17, 2018. For many, this offers the option to try cannabis as a safer, potentially more effective option in treating and managing their chronic joint pain.

Top Four Trends in Cannabis and Pain Management

The trend toward natural wellness now extends to using medical cannabis and CBD oil, something that may surprise you if you've never tried marijuana. While the stigmas of cannabis still go on in some circles, many more people are seeing the benefits in what it does to help people with illness.

For pain management, this is a major solution since far too many people here in Canada have to wait up to 18 months to get proper treatment.

To eliminate growing opioid abuse, take a look at the top five trends in using cannabis to naturally treat pain.

1. Cannabis Use in Healthcare

In places where medical cannabis is legalised, patients need doctor approval before use. Now, many doctors are beginning to prescribe cannabis directly for treating certain conditions.

For instance, reports show doctors occasionally prescribe cannabis to help treat muscle spasms, nausea, and Crohn's Disease. All of these conditions can cause discomfort that often continue indefinitely. Being able to get treated for these ailments without needing a prescription medication with side effects is truly a new revolution.

Research is being done on what other ailments cannabis can treat, making 2018 the year when you'll likely see many conditions become better managed.

2. More Use of CBD Oil

Not everyone wants to consume THC in cannabis to eliminate physical pain. A lot more people are opening up to the healing potential of CBD (Cannabidiol). Coming from hemp, CBD oil is becoming very popular, but doesn't have the high THC content normal cannabis has, and as such removes the psychoactive effect. Many people now being prescribed CBD to treat joint pain as just one example.

Forbes notes women are more apt to take CBD than men while being able to stop prescription pain medications in the process. Whether you consume it or not should go by doctor approval.

3. More Use of Cannabis to Help Pain in Pets

A decade ago, no one could have imagined they'd be able to acquire medical cannabis to help their pets deal with pain. More pet owners are starting to turn to their veterinarian to prescribe cannabis to help their ill pets manage their pain better.

For dogs, many cannabis products are already available to help them get relief from a variety of chronic ailments.

Even cats can safely take cannabis in the proper doses. Of course, the safest way to give it to them is in edible form.

4. Vaporizing and Tinctures Act Faster to Relieve Pain

Not everyone wants to smoke cannabis, especially if suffering from lung diseases. Smoking and consuming cannabis oil are typically the slowest way to get cannabis into your body. When you're suffering from agonizing pain, this obviously isn't going to work if you expect immediate results.

The trend now is to use vaporizing or tinctures for fast-acting relief. With vaping, you'll start to feel pain relief in just minutes. Nevertheless, it doesn't last quite as long and may require vaping again within a few hours.

Tinctures let you apply the cannabis oil under your tongue for swallowing. It's going to work almost instantly, despite requiring continual consumption every half-hour to keep yourself pain-free.
