Cannabis for Gout

Gout is a type of arthritis that causes sudden, severe joint pain. Gout occurs when there is too much uric acid in the body, creating sharp crystals in the joints. Gout usually affects the feet, and can cause pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints.

Medical cannabis can help treat various forms of arthritis, including gout. Due to the endocannabinoid system’s (ECS’s) relationship with the skeletal system and ability to repair bones, reduce pain and battle inflammation, cannabis and CBD may be a particularly well-tolerated treatment for gout.
