Cannabis for Disorders of the Synovium and Tendons

The synovium is a specialized connective soft-tissue membrane that lines the inner surface of synovial joint capsules. It is an important component of the tissues that form an integrated joint, together with bone, articular cartilage, tendon, ligament, and fibrous capsule. Examples of disorders affecting the synovial membrane and tendons include rheumatoid & psoriatic arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, gout arthropathy, synovial sarcoma and tumors.

Cannabis and cannabinoids could be useful in treating many conditions associated with the synovium and tendons, as targeting CB2 receptors at sites of swelling & irritation could help reduce inflammation and prevent further joint degeneration.
