The Journal of Hand Surgery recently published a randomized clinical trial regarding administering a topical formula containing hemp-derived CBD, which showed significant health and wellness improvements in patients with thumb basal joint arthritis.

Researchers with the University of Virginia School of Medicine assessed the twice-daily application of 1 ml of topical CBD (6.2 mg/ml) with shea butter versus placebo in 18 patients with symptomatic thumb basal joint arthritis.

Investigators reported, “Cannabidiol treatment resulted in improvements from baseline among patient-reported outcome measures, including Visual Analog Scale; Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand; and Single Assessment Numeric Evaluation scores, compared to the control arm during the study period.”

They concluded, “In this single-center, randomized controlled trial, topical CBD treatment demonstrated significant improvements in thumb basal joint wellness.”

Canadian survey data published earlier this month in the journal, Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology reported that one in five patients with arthritis acknowledges using cannabis therapeutically.
