CBD and Gout

Gout is a painful health condition that affects human joints.  It is common to experience gout in toes and feet too.

Gout is caused by excessive uric acid in the blood.  Uric acid is chemically created by the compound purine.  Purines are found in certain foods, e.g. herring, sardines, haddock, liver, bacon, veal, turkey, and some dried beans.  Purines can also be found in beer.

To manage gout a change in diet is first recommended.  Some pain relief should be experienced, but it could be prevented in the first place with some dietary changes.

Regular exercise and a healthy weight can also help gout.  Elevating the joint can bring some relief, and an anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen can help if prescribed.

Recent studies have shown CBD products can help treat gout.  CBD (cannabidiol) has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, so can reduce swelling and discomfort.

CBD can be taken as an oil.  A few drops under the tongue will be sufficient.  The dosage can be spread throughout the day.  Although some CBD oil users like to take it at bedtime, as it does instill a restful sleep.  

CBD flowers are another great way to take this effective supplement.  The flowers can be ground down and added into food or beverages.

It should be noted that CBD flowers and oil are non-psychoactive.  This means that it's use will not make you 'high'.  On the other hand THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) does have mind altering effects on the brain.  

CBD is a more favourable option to treat many ailments.  It is safe to use and is not addictive.

EU Regulations and Guidelines oversee the production of CBD products and their use, so ensure health and safety is paramount.
