Arthritis and Hemp Oil

Arthritis covers a broad term that covers a group of over 100 diseases. Arthritis is very common but is not well understood. It has everything to do with your joints, the places where your bones connect. This can include your wrists, knees, hips, or fingers but some types of arthritis can also affect other connective tissues and organs, including your skin. About 1 and 5 adults have some form of the condition. It can happen to anyone, but it becomes more common as you age. It is not really known what causes arthritis, but some things can raise your chances of getting it with the many types of arthritis.

Some of these things are:

• Gender – Most types of arthritis are more common among women, except with gout
• Genes – Conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and ankylosing spondylitis are linked to certain genes
• Excess weight – Carrying extra pounds makes arthritis in the knee start sooner and get worse faster
• Injuries – They can cause joint damage that can bring on some types of the condition
• Infections – Bacteria, viruses, or fungi can infect joints and trigger inflammation
• Work – If you go hard on your knees at work (knee bends and squats) you might be more likely to get osteoarthritis
