What is the best cannabis for osteoarthritis?
Answer - Doctor Sharon Olson
There are so many cannabis products that help with osteoarthritis, it would be great to know your symptoms. For pain relief, CBD cannabis is great but CBC, CBDa, CBG, CBN, THC and THCa would all be helpful for various symptoms so it sounds like you may need to do a little experimenting to see what helps your symptoms the most. In addition, please be certain you are getting enough vitamin D, over 50 years old we don't make it in our skin anymore so supplements are in order. If you take supplemental calcium you maybe increasing your pain so please take your vitamin D3 and eat or drink your greens regularly. If you have a lot of inflammatory disease with your osteoarthritis, please use CBD cannabis twice daily and in three weeks you will notice a lot of the inflammatory disease has resolved. CBD topical salve should we give you pain relief for 4 to 6 hours. Good luck with your exploration, you will find this medicine works better then nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Thank you! I don't take extra supplemental calcium & do take vitamin D3 plus plenty of greens. The pain is mainly in my thumb joints but the rest of my fingers do get sore as well. I like to stay away from the THC on a regular basis because of the altered affects. I am currently using Whoopi & Maya rub. I have used Aunt Zelda's salve in the past. Would CBD KUSH be good as well?

if you have tried other modalities with no relief, then depending on your medical history medical marijuana may be an option. Some will get relief of chronic pain from arthritis with cannabis.
