Question: Can CBD help with the osteoarthritis that I have in my knees? 

Answer: Okay, so CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and with osteoarthritis a lot of the pain is caused by the inflammation that it causes. So it can certainly help and it has helped my patients in the past. And in terms of the formulation that's been most effective for the patients that I've treated it's been CBD topicals, so typically they they apply the topical directly to the affected area and they apply it as often as needed. The important thing to keep in mind here is that the topical gets absorbed very locally. So you're not going to get any sort of systemic effect from it.
