Did you know that you have a 1 in 5 chance of developing arthritis in your lifetime1?
Never-Ending Cycle of Pain
You can escape death, but you can’t escape arthritis. The biggest risk of developing arthritis is age. The pain from arthritis can become so severe that it disrupts sleep. Imagine tossing and turning in bed at night from the pain.
In addition, having any form of arthritis can have a negative impact on your mental health. Depression and anxiety are often byproducts of arthritis. Studies have also indicated that depression and anxiety can decrease your pain tolerance, making your chronic pain feel more heightened.
In a cruel twist, having mental health problems can make your arthritis worse because pain incites depression and depression makes the pain worse.
So what are arthritis patients doing currently?
In short, patients are living with pain. Some are taking harmful anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medications like Advil or Naproxen that cause stomach ulcers and may result in life-threatening gastrointestinal bleeding.
Some are taking more dangerous and addictive opioids like Percocet to take the edge off the pain.

If medications don’t work, well there’s surgery, right? Go straight to pain-free with a knee or hip replacement?
For most Canadians, it’s a 6-12 month waiting list, once your orthopedic surgeon gives the green light for surgery. Not so fast. Good luck getting in to see an orthopedic surgeon or getting the MRI you need for surgery. This can also take up to a year. Many people forget that surgery carries the risk of heart attack, stroke, and blood clots (deep vein thrombosis) and is not risk-free.
If you’re living with arthritis, it’s this or live with the pain.
…There’s a NEW treatment for arthritis
Did you know that naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors can be found in your joints and bones?
When medical cannabis like CBD (cannabidiol) binds to these receptors, it helps to reduce joint pain, stiffness, and swelling.
Are patients with arthritis using medical cannabis?
Yes! In a survey of 2,600 patients by the Arthritis Foundation, 29% of these patients are using medical cannabis to manage their arthritis2.
Almost unanimously medical cannabis is being used to relieve pain (94%). 89% are using CBD daily or several times per week.
And there’s more…
Two-thirds reported improvement in their physical function. 71% of patients had better sleep. There were even more benefits reported with improvements in fatigue, morning stiffness, anxiety, and depressed mood.
Is it supported by doctors?
Yes! The Arthritis Foundation recommends a few milligrams of CBD under the tongue (sublingual) twice a day2. The Canadian Rheumatology Association prefers medical cannabis with a lower THC and higher CBD content in the treatment of arthritis3.
Is it covered by insurance?
Yes! Health Canada authorized medical cannabis products are eligible for reimbursement from your healthcare spending account. This is the same plan that reimburses your eye-glasses, orthotics, massages, physiotherapy appointments, and other expenses. Please speak with your insurance provider to see if medical cannabis is covered under your healthcare spending account.
