How does CBD help those with Arthritis?

Sciatica is a debilitating condition where the Sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back to the feet, is irritated or compressed. Sufferers of sciatica experience tingling, numbness and severe pain in the lower back or legs.

Sciatica is generally characterised by pain in the lower back and the legs, and can worsen when you move, sneeze or cough. Pain from sciatica can be very hard to deal with and sufferers typically look to take pain-relief so they can continue with their daily lives without too much disruption.

If you suffer from Sciatica then chances are you find it hard to live a normal life due to constant pain and disruption when going about daily activities. Even basic tasks such as walking, going to work, going up the stairs, or sitting down can be painful and uncomfortable.

Causes of Sciatica

New CBD products are constantly being innovated but here are a few of the most common examples of how CBD can be used:

Slipped disc

Where a soft cushion of tissue between the bones in the spine pushes out.


Spinal Stenosis

Narrowing of the part of the spine where nerves pass through.



When one of the bones in your spine slips out of position.

Can CBD help with managing pain?

In recent years the use of CBD products to manage pain relief has become more widespread. Anecdotal evidence suggests that taking CBD based products can provide some level of pain relief. There are already a number of CBD products on the market today to help with pain relief including topicals, creams, capsules sprays and oils.

CBD is a powerful antioxidant and its pain relieving properties are mostly related to this. By taking CBD it is believed that its antioxidant properties help reduce inflammation, increase flexibility and improve mobility. Users of CBD claim many other benefits which along with pain relief help to reduce discomfort.

CBD Frequently Asked Questions

Symptoms of sciatica include pain in your back, bottom or feet and toes. Typical issues may be pain, tingling, numbness and weakness. 

Treatments for Sciatica include painkillers and medication to help with the nerve pain. Physiotherapy and exercises are also common treatments for Sciatica. For more severe cases painkilling injections and surgery are options but these can be quite intrusive and so not always ideal in every case. 

Sciatica can last from 4 to 6 weeks but in some cases it can carry on for a lot longer. Sciatica can be very a painful and difficult condition to live with. For many people sciatica can cause problems with mobility, and prevent them from leading normal, healthy lives.

CBD is generally safe for most of the population but as with most supplements it is important to discuss taking them with your registered medical practitioner.

Users of CBD report different side effects such as drowsiness, loss of appetite, insomnia and dry mouth. CBD can affect different people in different ways and although it is mainly safe it is recommended you take smaller doses to begin with.

CBD does not contain the active compound THC so you are not able to get high from it. By law CBD products are required to contain less than 0.2% THC and in many cases contain close to zero.

Which CBD product is right for me?

If you are thinking of trying CBD products then there are many options available from tinctures, crumbles, oils, creams, vapes, lotions and more. The key things you need to consider are:

  • Type of CBD – As mentioned above different types of CBD can contain other compounds so you need to choose something which is right for you.
  • Bioavailability – This refers to how quickly the CBD enters the bloodstream. For example CBD Oils can be more readily absorbed compared to skin creams or edibles.
  • Your lifestyle – If you are more active and generally on the go then products infused with CBD can be easier to manage compared to oils or liquids. Alternatively if you prefer to have control over how much CBD you are taking then oils are preferred.
