Cannabis can help with joint pain in two ways. Firstly, it deals with the pain itself. THC is the main cannabinoid responsible for this direct pain-relief, while it is assisted by the cannabinoid CBC and the terpenes Linalool and Myrcene. Together, these compounds act on the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which in turn modulates the activity of the pain sensory neurons in our body’s nervous system. Secondly, the cannabinoid CBD, and other minor cannabinoids such as CBC, reduce the root cause of most cases of joint pain; inflammation.

This reduction is aided by the terpenes pinene, caryophyllene, and humulene through our cannabinoid receptors in what is known as the Entourage Effect.

When we experience joint pain, we tend to dismiss it as a form of tiredness or ageing. From a sore neck to knee pain, it is easy to downplay the situation. I am sure we all have an older relative who can attest to that feeling of getting older. 

However, the most common form of joint pain and other forms of arthritis are present in an estimated 91 million people. That figure includes about 61 million people aged between 18-64. These figures indicate that the number of young to middle-aged adults who are suffering from arthritis or joint pain symptoms remains a huge issue. Clearly, pain and inflammation in the joints are not just the ordeals of the elderly population alone.

However, if you are battling joint pain or suffering from arthritis there may be a solution with cannabis and its ability to treat pain. 

Treating Joint Pain –The Challenge for Medical Professionals

In addition to the amount of physical pain caused, as well as a reduced quality of life, chronic joint pain can cause other adverse effects. There are economical and productivity impacts in terms of the increased cost of healthcare, disability, and more. 

For a healthcare professional, the perfect solution to joint pain or different types of arthritis continues to prove elusive. Even if prescription pain medication is commonly used to treat chronic pain, it comes without plenty of unwanted side effects. 

As such, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns against the long-term use of opioids in treating chronic pain. It notes that there is not enough evidence to support opioid therapy for chronic pain while pointing out serious risks over a longer period. With over-the-counter painkillers, health professionals suggest that individuals ingest the lowest possible doses within a short time frame.

This, however, is hardly an ideal situation for those suffering from chronic joint pain but there could well be hope with cannabis and cannabinoids. Research has suggested that medical cannabis may have the potential to improve joint pain management. 

Although scientific research and findings are still in the preliminary stage, evidence suggests that the therapeutic capabilities of cannabis as a treatment for joint pain are highly encouraging. Indeed cannabis seems to be something of an anti-inflammatory agent for a number of health conditions.

Find our selection of cannabis strains for joint pain

There are a number of cannabis strains available for people looking to treat joint pain management. As such, we have picked out 4 of the best cannabis strains for pain that are considered to be ideal cannabis strains for arthritis and joint pain.

Original Glue Strain

Formerly known as Gorilla Glue #4, this world-famous diesel strain could be an ideal treatment for joint pain. With it ́s high THC content that can reach a whopping 25%, Original Glue is one of the most popular recreational and medical strains on the market today.

Famed for its pain-relieving qualities, Original Glue is an Indica dominant hybrid that delivers an equal measure of sativa like euphoria with the relaxation typically associated with a powerful indica strain.

Original Glue comes with a high THC count approaching 20-25% and for those with joint pain, this famous strain could provide some much-needed relief thanks to its reported ability at minimizing pain and relieving body stress. 

This potent hybrid strains earthy and sour flavour is the result of its parental lineage, Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. Some users describe Original Glue as leaving a chocolate after-taste that is pleasantly bitter with lemony undertones. It has a terpene blend of alpha-humulene, linalool and myrcene that helps to give this strain its sour-piney-earthy scent.

G13 Marijuana Strain

One of the most famous strains of marijuana, this indica dominant strain is a unique favourite of outdoor and indoor growers and is often used to treat pain.

G13 achieved its legendary status having been supposedly bred by the U.S government in the 1960s. As such, G13 has long topped the list of urban myths when it comes to cannabis strains.  Still, whether the legend is true or not, this powerful strain has THC levels around 20%. With such a potent effect,  It’s little wonder that some people refer to G13 as being part of a group of so-called “superstrains”:

This top of the class strain for pain relief has a savoury cheesiness with a sweet smell that may remind you of wild-berries. Its pine flavour fused with woody traces, thanks to terpenes like pinene, myrcene, and limonene provides a smooth and uplifting experience.

With a balanced euphoric high, G13 is a potent marijuana strain that is thought to provide real relief from joint pain and inflammation. 

Blue Dream Marijuana Strain

A Sativa dominant hybrid, with high levels of THC, Blue Dream is thought to be one of the best options for minimizing pain.

This high in THC strain (approaching 20%) is thought to be particularly effective as a treatment for joint pain. Blue Dream ́s terpene profile shows high levels of pinene, caryophyllene and myrcene, all of which are thought capable of reducing pain and inflammation.

A cross of Blueberry with Haze, Blue Dream achieves full-body relaxation with some subtle cerebral stimulation. With a sweet berry aroma similar to that of its Blueberry parent, Blue Dream can help to relieve pain and provide relief without any heavy sedative effects. As such, Blue Dream is a popular daytime medicine for those living with the condition.

Harlequin

Harlequin is a sativadominant hybrid that is known as one of the most effective highcbd strains because of its high level of CBD content and low THC count. 

This Colombian Gold descendant (a famed indica from Nepal) and Thai and Swiss landrace strains, provides plenty of clear-headed sativa effects that make it one of the best strains of marijuana for pain. 

With a low THC content of just 7%, Harlequin is a medical cannabis strain that doesn’t cause any of the psychoactive effects associated with a high in THC strain. This allows users to enjoy their day without the added euphoria or sedating effects that some consumers want to avoid. With levels of CBD ranging between 10 to 15%, Harlequin is recommended for medical use as it is unlikely to provide any unwanted cerebral effects.

Indeed, this mellow sativa strain is favoured by many because of its ability to relax without sedation, to treat muscle spasms and relieve pain without any intoxicating or psychoactive effects. 

Harlequin ́s most prominent terpenes include myrcene that helps to generate this strain’s herbal, almost woody, piney flavour.

As strains for pain go, Harlequin is considered to be one of the most effective to reduce inflammation and minimizing pain including joint pain.

Deciding the best cannabis strain to relieve pain may require that you try out a selection of different strains. Trying out a variety of strains will help you to find one that interacts best with your physiology. Different types of strains can have varying levels of efficacy, depending on the user and their type of pain. 

While many continue to use chemical solutions for their health concerns, it would appear that regular cannabis plants could actually provide real solutions for people with real problems.
