Well, I actually realised something this week – Gout is a form of arthritis – don’t laugh, I just never knew that!

I know a few people that suffer from Gout and it is very, very painful.


So what is Gout?

Gout is a common and complex form of arthritis that can affect anyone. It’s characterized by sudden, severe attacks of pain, swelling, redness and tenderness in one or more joints, most often in the big toe.

An attack of gout can occur suddenly, often waking you up in the middle of the night with the sensation that your big toe is on fire. The affected joint is hot, swollen and so tender that even the weight of the bedsheet on it may seem intolerable.

Gout symptoms may come and go, but there are ways to manage symptoms and prevent flares.

What causes Gout?

Gout occurs when urate crystals accumulate in your joint, causing the inflammation and intense pain of a gout attack. Urate crystals can form when you have high levels of uric acid in your blood. Your body produces uric acid when it breaks down purines — substances that are found naturally in your body.

Purines are also found in certain foods, including red meat and organ meats, such as liver. Purine-rich seafood includes anchovies, sardines, mussels, scallops, trout and tuna. Alcoholic beverages, especially beer, and drinks sweetened with fruit sugar (fructose) promote higher levels of uric acid.

Normally, uric acid dissolves in your blood and passes through your kidneys into your urine. But sometimes either your body produces too much uric acid or your kidneys excrete too little uric acid. When this happens, uric acid can build up, forming sharp, needlelike urate crystals in a joint or surrounding tissue that cause pain, inflammation and swelling.

So…where does Canna Oils BCP fit into the picture?
As we have seen in previous Blogs, Canna Oils BCP has anti-inflammatory properties, because of its direct interaction with the CB2 receptors of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

I read about this one study that induced inflammation in rodents and found an impressive 70% recovery rate in “wild type” animals (normal genetics).  They also examined the effects on what they called CB2 Knock-Outs (genetically engineered animals lacking CB2 receptors) and found no recovery in this group.  Yes, you read this right, they engineered rodents void of the CB2 receptor, so they could ensure that it was in fact the BCP interacting with the BC2 receptors that bought about the recovery – WOW.

So hopefully, with a bit of a change in diet (perhaps mostly the liquid type – haha) and adding Canna Oils BCP to your daily routine, the effects of Gout can be lessened or eliminated (or any type of arthritis or inflammation for that matter).

Also, don’t forget that you can apply your Canna Oils BCP directly on areas of pain and inflammation as needed, in addition to taking orally morning and night.
