Arthritis is a common chronic health condition that refers to a number of distinct (but related) illnesses. By definition, it refers to a disease that causes joint inflammation and pain, often affecting the weight-bearing parts of the body. The common parts where arthritis is likely to attack are the spine, hips, and knees.
However, other areas, such as the fingers, wrists, and toes, are also prone to attack. While the chronic joint pain is often resistant to pain management therapies, studies suggest that cannabis helps with arthritis pain and inflammation.
