Rheumatoid Arthritis is an inflammatory disorder where confused immune cells constantly attack the joints and surrounding tissues causing swelling, pain and damage. Not so widely known, this condition can afflict the skin, eyes, blood vessels and nerves as well.
Osteoarthritis is a separate condition that results from inadequate maintenance of cells and repair through wear and tear. In this condition, scar tissue and bone build up and nerves rub on bone resulting in PAIN and inflammation.
Both Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis can be severely debilitating. Medical Cannabis is commonly prescribed or recommended – for all forms of Arthritis – wherever it is legal.
