Scientific evidence: Cannabis and Osteoarthritis

A recent research paper published in the European Journal of Neuroscience has outlined how the use of cannabinoids (the active components in marijuana) can offer significant therapeutic qualities in the preclinical testing of osteoarthritis. The research found that the endocannabinoid system within our body appears to be ideal for treating pain, inflammation and joint function, making cannabis a potentially ideal treatment. In their words “The ubiquitous distribution of cannabinoid receptors, together with the physiological role of the endocannabinoid system in the regulation of pain, inflammation and even joint function further support the therapeutic interest of cannabinoids for osteoarthritis.
