Yes, cannabis can definitely help with inflammation. High-CBD products are typically what patients seek when they are looking to deal with inflammation. Many people like to use cannabis topicals it the inflammation is localized. If you're dealing with a more systemic issue, you can look to vaping, tinctures or edibles. A tincture that is popular in our community is Care By Design 20:1 or 18:1 if you'd like a bit more THC to deal with pain. There are many different brands out there, so look for one without use of pesticides and that use whole flower.
