Hi there! Like most inflammatory pain issues, cannabis should help alleviate gout pain. However, cannabis won't have any effect on preventing an attack; avoiding foods known to exacerbate gout should be be strictly avoided. https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/gout-diet/art-20048524 I would likely recommend a high CBD vs low THC containing product, such as:
High CBD strains to consider: ACDC - a 20:1 sativa strain Ringo's Gift - a 25:1 hybrid strain Charlotte's Web - a 30:1 sativa strain Harlequin - a 5:2 sativa strain Sweet and Sour Widow - a 1:1 indica strain Pennywise - a 1:1 indica strain Cannatonic - a 3:1 hybrid strain
I hope this helps!
