What cannabis products help with bone-on-bone knee pain?

Getting the right answers in your cannabis journey can be tricky. But with The Cannigma’s Ask the Expert, you can find questions from readers like you, answered by a real cannabis pharmacist. 

Question: I have bone on bone knee pain. Looking for a rub for my knee. Thanks


To get right to your question, the best product for you can depend on a variety of factors, so we suggest you refer to our list of the best topicals for pain.

When choosing, aside from budget, it’s important to consider if you want warming or cooling effects (often delivered by ingredients like camphor or menthol). Also consider if you want lotion that you can rub in, or could an oily topical work? Do you live in a legal state? If so, you’ll be able to find more cannabinoids (like THC and THCa) available. These are a few of the questions you’ll have to explore when choosing the best product for you.

It’s also worth mentioning that topical cannabinoids do not enter the bloodstream, so you won’t have to worry about getting high, or any drug interactions. Unless of course the product is specifically made for transdermal delivery, but there are relatively few products on the market that fit this description.
You can also make your own infused topicals at home pretty easily. 

I hope you learned something and are feeling empowered to try some topical products!
