cbd for inflammation slider


Cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of cannabinoid, one of many compounds found naturally in cannabis plants. Some people with chronic pain use CBD products, such as CBD oil or topical CBD creams, to help manage their symptoms. CBD oil may reduce pain, inflammation, or overall discomfort related to a variety of health conditions. Unfortunately, due to the restrictions on testing on cannabis more research is needed to verify the pain-relieving benefits of CBD oil, but the research on CBD products and pain management has been promising. The research suggests that CBD could offer an alternative for people who have chronic pain and rely on medications, such as opioids, that can be habit-forming and cause dangerous side effects.

CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is a chemical compound naturally occurring in the hemp plant, Cannabis Sativa. It can be taken orally (as a tablet, capsule or gummy), sublingually (under the tongue as a tincture) or topically (applied to the skin as a cream) to deliver a wide range of benefits.

CBD or Cannabidiol is legal in the UK, provided it comes from an industrial hemp strain that is EU approved and contains no THC, but you need to make sure you are getting it from a trusted source. Hemp Well organic CBD comes from EU certified hemp grown at our own farm, processed and lab tested to make sure it is pure and contains accurate dosages. We control the process from seed to shelf so that you can be confident you are getting a high quality, fully traceable product.

The human body contains a complex network of neurotransmitters and cannabinoid receptors known as the endocannabinoid receptor system (ECS). Research suggests that cannabinoids and the ECS may play a role in many bodily processes including anxiety, stress and mood.


Research on CBD and inflammation is still in the early stages, and there’s a lot we don’t know yet, but what we do know so far is promising.

There is research to suggest that CBD reduces inflammation by working with the body’s internal endocannabinoid receptors. It is possible that this function will affect both chronic inflammation and acute inflammation. A study on rats found that CBD reduced inflammation in rats with osteoarthritis, lots of our customers are arthritic and are seeing results from taking CBD to relieve their arthritis symptoms.

This 2009 review also shows CBD may reduce acute inflammation, which is most often the body’s reaction to an injury, this indicates that taking CBD could be beneficial for athletes suffering from temporary inflammation due to training stress or injury.


It is well known that Cannabinoids are potent anti-inflammatory agents (Source) and therefore could provide real benefits to help relieve inflammation, swelling and pain commonly associated with arthritis.

Arthritis.org say: ‘Animal studies have suggested that CBD has pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties, but these effects have not been validated in quality studies in humans. Anecdotally, some people with arthritis who have tried CBD, but not all, report noticeable pain relief, sleep improvement and/or anxiety reduction.’

In 2016 a study on rats showed that both pain and inflammation of arthritis was significantly reduced by CBD and in 2018, this study on the treatment of osteoarthritis in dogs demonstrated that CBD resulted in a significant decrease in pain, and increase in activity in the dogs tested. There are over 30 clinical trials being undertaken in Europe at the moment for a range of conditions, we hope there will be results from research into CBD for arthritis in human patients soon.

FAQS: CBD for Inflammation

What CBD products are best for inflammation?

To tackle specific inflamed areas, a topical cream would be a good choice. CBD is absorbed by the skin and delivered to the target area to help reduce inflammation. CBD oil can be a good choice to get CBD into your bloodstream which can then help your body to provide anti-inflammatory effects where needed.

How long does CBD take to work?

CBD has short and long term effects. In the short term, depending on how you choose to take CBD, you will begin to feel effects from anywhere between 10 minutes and 2 hours. However, CBD can also have a longer term effect on you and your body. As you continue to take CBD, some will stay in your body, and slowly build up to further help your endocannabinoid system. As a rule of thumb, we recommend that you use CBD consistently for at least 2 weeks to begin to see the full effects of our products.

Is CBD legal in the UK?

CBD is legal in the UK. UK regulations state that CBD oil is legal so long as it contains no THC. Our CBD is regularly checked by third party labs to make sure our products are safe and legal. These reports are always available to view on our website, and we’re proud to be one of the first companies to have their products listed on the FSA’s new approved CBD products list. When you buy CBD from HempWell, you can rest assured that you’re receiving high quality, ethical CBD products.

Is CBD safe to use?

CBD is completely safe. Our CBD isolate has a guaranteed purity of at least 99.9%. We extract our CBD from hemp we grow ourselves, so we know exactly what it’s made of! We regularly have our oils tested by third-party labs to make sure there’s quality in every bottle. 

How much CBD should I take for inflammation?

While it can differ between people and circumstance, a low to medium dose of around 25mg might be a good place to start. The great thing about our topical creams is that you can apply more as and when you need it, so you can really play it by ear! We recommend you give your CBD pain creams up to an hour to take effect before applying more.

Can I take CBD for inflammation while on medication?

Consult your doctor if you’re thinking of taking CBD while on medication.
