Yes cannabis seems to be very effective in treating the pain and inflammation associated with gout. I have talked with many patients who experience gouty arthritis and they have attested to the therapeutic benefits of Canabis. High CBD preparations of cannabis seem to be particularly effective. These preparations can be ingested orally, applied directly to the skin overlying painful areas and also can be inhaled.
