An Exploratory Cross-Sectional Analysis of Cannabidiol Use for Arthritic Joint Pain

Nicholas Frane
Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra

Objective: The purpose of our study was to evaluate evaluating the patient-perceived effect that CBD use has on pain and use of other oral medications in patients with arthritis. We hypothesized that patients who used CBD would report improvements in pain with no difference between groups when compared by type of arthritis.

    Hi – I wonder if you collected any information about the dose of CBD used, or whether people used a product that was an isolate, broad spectrum, or full spectrum CBD

      Bob Cook – Thank you for your interest. We did ask participants about the type of CBD they used (Isolate, broad, full-spectrum, etc) as well as dosing, and route of administration. Unfortunately, a large percentage of participants did not know what type of CBD was used possibly because they are unaware of the differences or just did not recall and therefore we did not run an analysis on this. The dosing ranges were pretty evenly distributed with most of the participants using daily doses less than 10-25mg or 26-50mg.
