How CBD Topicals Can Help with Arthritis

If you haven’t already heard, CBD has exploded in popularity over the last year. After Congress passed the Farm Bill in late 2018, CBD products became widely available as hemp (which is what CBD is derived from) was removed from the controlled substance list. The result has been a public frenzy around CBD products, with many Americans using a variety of CBD products. Many enthusiasts tout CBD as a safer, more natural remedy for chronic pain relief, especially in light of the Opioid crisis ravaging much of America. Unlike THC, CBD has no psychotic effects, meaning you will not get “high” from using CBD.


In fact, CBD has become extremely popular within a specific group of people – those dealing with Arthritis (almost 54 million people in the United States alone!). Many studies have suggested that CBD has pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. Many people with Arthritis, who have tried CBD report noticeable pain relief, sleep improvement and/or anxiety reduction. In an effort to better understand patient care, The Arthritis Foundation, the largest Arthritis-related organization in the world, surveyed its constituents to understand the growing popularity of CBD.

In a survey of over 2,600 people with Arthritis, over 79% are already using CBD.The shocking adoption of CBD among those suffering with Arthritis forced the Arthritis Foundation to release guidelines last week for people who want to try CBD – the first such guidance on using the cannabis-derived ingredient from any major patient advocacy group in the world. This is notable as medical consumer advocacy organizations like AARP and the Arthritis Foundation are finding they must balance the conservative stance of most medical authorities with the real-life needs of their constituents. As the AARP September Bulletin noted, “the tipping point has been reached.”

CBD is most commonly taken in the form of CBD Oil, however CBD Topicals have become popular with people who have specific pain areas or achy joints. CBD Topicals allow you to target the CBD in specific areas and can be far cheaper and more effective than addictive prescription pain medications. Unlike other CBD creams and salves on the market that feature lower concentrations of CBD (i.e., lower milligrams of CBD in larger containers), Greenly CBD’s Ultra Healing Salve has 2000 MG of CBD for less than half the cost of competitive brands! This is one of the strongest CBD Topicals available and 3-4x stronger than most common CBD Topical products.
