How to Use CBD Oil for Polymyalgia Symptom Relief

The inflammatory disorder Polymyalgia Rheumatica mostly strikes adults over the age of 65. In fact, this disease rarely afflicts those under the age of 50. Females are up to three times more likely to contract the disease than men and Caucasians, especially those with Scandinavian roots also run a higher risk for the condition.

Symptoms of Polymyalgia Rheumatica include muscle pain mostly in the shoulders but also the neck, upper arms, and legs. Patients may also experience limited range of motion, weight loss, depression, and an overall feeling of malaise.

What is CBD?

The cannabinoid, CBD [cannabidiol] derives from the hemp plant. Both hemp and marijuana belong to the cannabis sativa species. The amount of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC distinguishes marijuana from hemp. THC represents the property that gives marijuana its reputation for achieving a high or euphoric feeling. If a plant contains less than .3% THC, it falls under the hemp category. A marijuana plant will contain between .5 and 30% THC depending on the strain.

To extract CBD oil from the hemp plant either the CO2 extraction method or maceration comes into play. Any or all plants including the flowers, stems, roots, and leaves are viable parts for the extraction process.

How CBD works to relieve Polymyalgia Rheumatica?

Not surprisingly, one of the populations who most frequently depend on cannabis for pain treatment and other health concerns are the Baby Boomers who now fall under the category of senior citizens.

Many Boomers still recall sifting through seeds and stems to prepare a marijuana joint to get high. Decades ago, these seniors worried about getting caught with cannabis. These days, they bus to dispensaries from Senior Living complexes.

Now, of course, seniors turn to cannabis and especially CBD to get relief from Polymyalgia Rheumatica and other painful conditions. CBD offers a solution with virtually no adverse side-effects, and it fights inflammation 20 times better than aspirin.

CBD works without adverse side-effects because it works in concert with the body’s Endocannabinoid System or ECS. All mammals have an ECS. A series of acidic molecules called endocannabinoids running throughout the entire body, and its systems make up the ECS.

Homeostasis or balance makes up the primary function of the ECS, lending credence to the idea of the body healing itself. Poor lifestyle choices regarding diet, exercise, and alcohol use tend to compromise the ECS, as does autoimmune conditions and aging.

The ECS, though always a part of our makeup, did not get discovered until the 1980s. The ECS discovery happened when research to determine why cannabis helped so many different ailments took place. Cannabis has the same system as the ECS. This system in plants or photosynthesis helps keep the plant healthy.

The cannabis works with the ECS on the cellular level by targeting the C1 or C2 receptors. Administering CBD binds explicitly with the C2 receptors helping to alleviate inflammation, pain, anxiety, and digestive disorders.

CBD oil helps with the symptoms of Polymyalgia Rheumatica for several different reasons:

  • Controls inflammation

  • Promotes better sleep
  • Relieves anxiety


The relief of the symptoms enables an increased range of motion and a better quality of life for the patient.
