POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 23, 2021
Aalborg, Denmark: The consumption of synthetic CBD is not associated with clinically significant reductions in pain intensity in patients with either hand osteoarthritis or psoriatic arthritis, according to clinical trial data (Links to an external site.) published in the journal Pain.

Dutch investigators evaluated the efficacy of the daily use of synthetic CBD versus placebo for 12 weeks in 129 patients with arthritis. Subjects in the study consumed CBD (or placebo) as an adjunct to their regularly prescribed medications.

“We found neither clinically nor statistically significant effect of CBD for pain intensity in patients with hand osteoarthritis and psoriatic arthritis when compared to placebo,” authors reported. “Additionally, no statistically significant effects were found on sleep quality, depression, anxiety, or pain catastrophizing scores.”

Patients with arthritis often report (Links to an external site.) using cannabis therapeutically. However, relatively few controlled studies are available assessing the use of either cannabis or cannabinoids in patients with RA and the results of these trials have been inconsistent (Links to an external site.)
