We were excited to see a published guide from the Arthritis Foundation to help people use CBD. As you know, we here at Artistic Organics like to share studies, especially those that are easy to read and understand. Below is a study on CBD and Arthritis. We’d like to point out a few items of note. (Items in purple are taken directly from the article with our comments in black)
“Industry reports show that people with arthritis are among the top buyers, and pain is the leading reason for purchase.” We’ve found this to be consistent with our customers. Pain, and especially chronic pain, is the main reason people seek CBD products. Other common issues include, anxiety, depression, sleep, spasms, gut issues, inflammation, and hormone balancing.
“Go low and slow. Start with just a few milligrams of CBD in sublingual form twice a day.” We agree with the Arthritis Foundation and recommend taking CBD twice a day to keep consistent levels in the body. We give every one of our customers a chart to follow (You can also find it on our website: Chart). This helps with the ‘start low’ recommendation and slowly increase every few days. We have found the fastest way to achieve optimal dosing is to increase the amount taken every 3 days until a person feels that they have found their ‘sweet spot’ and feel better.
“Shopping Smart. What to look for when shopping?
- Look for products manufactured in the U.S. with ingredients grown domestically.
- Choose products made by companies that follow good manufacturing practices….
- Buy from companies that test …..”
They point out the key shopping guidelines for consumers. We teach what to look for in products in our monthly classes and encourage everyone to make sure their loved ones use the same criteria.
