Description

Do you have questions about arthritis and how cannabis can benefit you?

Please join us at Farmacy’s Clinic and speaker Andrew Gill who will be discussing cannabis use and how it can treat the symptoms of arthritis.

Arthritis consists of more than 100 different conditions which range from mild to crippling forms such as Rheumatoid arthritis. According to the Arthritis Society, it can affect people of every age, gender, and ethnic background and currently over 4.6 million Canadian adults (1 in 6 over the age of 15) report having it. Growing bodies of successful preclinical and clinical trials are showing the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) and its anti-inflammatory properties. Pain detecting nerves are filled withcannabinoid receptors and according to researchers, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids control the firing of pain signals from our joints to the brain, ultimately improving pain on movement, pain at rest, and quality of sleep.

Some of the different forms of arthritis that medicinal cannabis may treat include:

-Rheumatoid arthritis

-Osteoarthritis

-Psoriatic arthritis

-Persistent joint pain

-Locked joints

-Morning stiffness

-Muscle inflammation

…and more
