Cannabis strains for joint pain

The way how cannabis can help with joint pain is twofold. 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, reduces the root cause of most cases of joint pain; inflammation. This reduction is aided by the terpenes Pinene, Caryophyllene, and Humulene through what we call the Entourage Effect.
